Hello please don't feel bad about negative reviews, i loved the game and i would like to see more from you, i do think the game was too hard, to find the items, and they were both on the first floor lol, mainly it took me ages because you need to do all steps before those items appear and you are able to take them, great game, i loved the sound of the monsters they were the most creepy i have heard in a horror game

Hello Lukifah! Thanks so much for playing the game, I understand that this game isn't all that great, as I've improved a lot since this game, so I really hope you play some of my other games here on itch (They're also FREE!) About to watch your video, Super glad you enjoyed it. I will take your feedback into consideration going forward!

Your video appears to be showing as Private and it's not allowing me to view it.



Thanks so much for playing!


From what I experienced, The Grim Stuff seems to have a gritty atmosphere, which I’m definitely a big fan of. The version I played was before the full release, so I unfortunately didn’t get much of a chance to see what the game was truly about. 

Hi! thanks for playing the demo for The Grim Stuff! We're glad to see you enjoyed what you played! We have a new game releasing tomorrow, hope to maybe see you give it a try.

hi my friend, big thx for the jey and here is my next try  ;) greetings from rosti


This is by far the worst horror game I've ever seen. I'm a big horror lover, I've played outlast and resident evil 7 religiously so I would know. I showed this to my brother and he wanted to throw up it was so bad. Also this font is absolute garbage and just lazy. The voices all sounded like one autistic guy doing different accents. Over all 1/10. Don't waste money kids.     

Hello there. We're sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy the game. However I think you really need to understand that, the game was made in just under 5 days by 1 person. That's a pretty short amount of time to make a game like this. You also appear to be in the minority, as most people very much enjoyed the game. We know we cannot please everyone. The game was not inspired by or have anything to do with Resident Evil 7 or Outlast. If you could provide the email you used to purchase a copy, we could see about refunding your $1.00.


I tried... I really, really tried.

Thanks for playing!


This game got my heart worked up and ended up waking up my neighbors in the middle of the night. I did however not beat the game, I really don't know what to do once You get the syringe (I know there's other videos on it, but I prefer to figure stuff out on my own). Great job, this is a diamond in the rough.

Hey, thanks so much for playing our game, we're really glad you enjoyed it! We left a comment on your video to maybe help point you in the right direction, should you return to the game!


I gave it a go, failed but thanks for the game ya'll. Its quite good.

Dillion, you are a prick

I know.


Loved the atmosphere, good scares and good use of sound. Short and sweet. Great job!

Thanks so much for playing our game GoodKhaos! We're so glad you enjoyed it!


Was finally able to upload my video on this, I beat the game yesterday at 9AM if that means anything lol. I also beat it in under 20 minutes, you gotta see how the ending went though


Thanks so much for playing Neco! You finished it much faster than you did The Bloodbath Trials, so congrats! A lot of the things you mentioned and experienced in you play through have since been changed, tweaked or fixed. Thanks again!


#1 Completion 

Great Jobs! Owl Nest Studio AND UnsealedWings

You Guys are on the right track! Chapter Implementation Would Be a Great addition to your Games...! 

It was Difficult! :)



Thanks for playing SirWinny! Congrats on being the first to finish the game!

The game is very hard. Can you make it easier?

Hello! We're sorry to hear your having trouble with the difficulty of the game. If we made the game any easier, it would be too short of an experience. We understand the game may not be right for everyone, however we encourage you to keep trying! The game requires a lot of trial and error to get into a rhythm of strategy. We will be updating the game at some point and perhaps we will tweak a few things while we're there to better pose a more even challenge. We really hope you enjoyed what you have played so far though!


Ahoy there stranger. Whattaya boiyin? Whattaya SELLING? Noot enough cash! Guns not just about shootin'. Guns about reloadin'. 


Ah! I'll buy it at a high price!


Hehehehe... thank you. Come back, anytoim.
