Any chance you could include the payment via the credit card or make it free for the weekend (both this and the Grim Stuff)?

Hello SobakaPeppa! I'm not quite sure what you mean by "Any chance you could include the payment via the credit card". Could you elaborate please? and I may consider making the games free at some point soon!

It means that I can only pay for it by using paypal, you didn't include a way to pay for the game by credit card!

The purchasing methods are determined and set by Itch staff themselves. I have no control over that.


A little confusing and clunky, but good concept. We enjoyed it

Thanks so much for playing the demo to our game! The full game is out, Should you consider checking it out! We're glad you enjoyed it!


Note: I got the game for free.

The game definitely lived up to the demos that was put out. Nice job. I'd only suggest tweaking the final boss fight a little bit so that it's not always on you. But besides that, nice job.

Well as you lads and lady(maybe more than one?) I played and enjoyed it. Very well put together game, not too hard, not easy and interesting. Definitely worth the price. I dont want to ruin anyones experience by spoilers but if you like a creepy game, a story and being able to defend yourself this is a good purchase. I always feel like I am trying to lure people to the channel by posting videos but when asked I will so for anyone interested below are my vids.




Super fun game, its really difficult for me though, largely because I suck, but also I was a little confused as to what to do. Perhaps some objectives indicator would help? i.e what to do next? Otherwise great game, great graphics and creepy atmosphere

Hello itspandabum! Thanks for playing our game, we're so glad to hear that you enjoyed it! We're very passionate about making games that are difficult but fair, and while this demo does not hold your hand, it does definitely give subtle hints through exploration and trial and error to discover what you need to do. Furthermore, the level is simply too short to add or change anything as far as objective indication.


Good game, I can keep playing

We're so glad to hear you enjoyed the demo! We're hard at work to put out the full game, so keep an eye out!


I gave the demo a shot and while it was hard at first (combat wise) it got easier as I started to figure out how to fight. I just couldn't find that last code. (That or I'm just blind.)

Nice demo and a good rep of what the game is gonna be.

Thanks for playing Levont!

Show post...

damn so good creepy

Thanks so much for playing! Glad you enjoyed!

A little hard. Could not find the last digit for the code and what order it is supposed to be in. So agve up.


Hey thanks so much for playing! And yes, the last digit is a little difficult to find, as by design, but we'll give you a hint, it's hiding behind something breakable. We're sorry you found the game too difficult, we've recently received feedback that it was too easy, so we're not sure what to believe at this point haha!

tried it its pretty fun for a demo actually i am confuse on wat objective should i do so i watch gphobia's vid for a tutorial and the magazines of the pistols turns to 0 after dying 1 time idk if its intended or not but its pretty fun i wanna try the full release aswell sooner

here is a little video i made i cant find a good thumbnail so i use yours i hope you dont mind i can change it if you guys ask me to anyways thanks for the game

Thanks so much for playing, we left you a comment on your video!


Amazing game dev :D i gave it multi tries these monster so annoying lol you can make check  points ot not make them responing because they are tough and alot anyway , i hoe you enjoy my gameplay 

Hi there gphob1a! We're so glad you enjoyed the demo! And thanks for the feedback! The respawning Dreks is because the sewer is infested and we wanted to give the feel of a never ending threat. If you play stealthy, their not too much of an issues, it's when you take the loud approach is when things get dicey. Nonetheless, we're happy you enjoyed the game and will be taking all of your feedback into account moving forward!
