Hey Shane.Z this is a message from Shane Lefler Your game here fucking scared me i left the game i am frighted easly but i have not been this level of scared this is a master peace good day Shane.Z

I love how you just made a game that you can show your anger to the ghost...literally. A bit too intense for me tho


Loved it. 3 days is impressive.


I can't play the game.

It's not a technical problem, it's just that it gets so tense that I chicken out.

damn was this game is fun

i had no idea what i was doing lol, starts @ 18:40

My god it is scary, but I love it.

It's hard, scary, and well made. The resolution, filters are pleasant to the eye!

Yeah silly jumpscares! This game scared to death! The grahpics are cool though keep up the good work.


boo you got spooked


Thanks for the game! I really liked the concept and the style but did find it a bit too hard to navigate at the end so I gave up before finding the key. Amazing work for 4 days though! 


is my first jump scare and i... so scare

tbh the first jump scare made me feel like my soul left my body

Very cool game. The graphics are very simple but they go along way. The monster is scary even with the silly way you deal with them.

Wow. Blown away by this game. I loved the aesthetic but it wasn't until I went hands on with that I found out how horrifying it can actually be. I absolutely love it!

Oh wow. This game surprised us. The look is awesome and didn't expect how tense and scary the game will be. The game is well crafted to look like a game boy game but creating really good techniques to scary the player. The sound is superb and brings a great atmosphere throughout the game.

LOVE  this

OK, this actually genuinely surprised me... in many ways.
I normally think of myself being quite harsh when playing and 'judging' little indie games, especially horror games as, lets face it, most are pretty bad. But this i really enjoyed. Enjoyed a bit too much i think haha. 
I first read the word 'jumpscare' and though, great, another game, that throws, cheep nasty jumpscares, expecting thats what makes a good horror. but no, this game is so much more. the atmosphere alone is creepy as hell, not being able to see that far ahead of you, then constant strange sounds and the fear that something is always lurking around the next corner. Absolutely love the graphics of this and always think people underestimate a game when using this style. Still freaky with the filter and probably makes it moreso because of it.
I recorded a little bit of this game, didnt get very far as i was getting a bit lost. Think i was meant to be hunting for a key, but couldnt find it.
But i will definitely be going  back to this game in my own time, thats for sure. Such a great little game. Honestly cant give you feedback on how to improve it. in 4 days, this is kinda impressive. Well made!

I really enjoy the style of this game. It's a classic retro feel, and it also goes to show that games don't need extremely detailed graphics to give you a little scare! This achieved just that with a very nice style. Overall, it's super fun, I'd def recommend it to folks who like thrills, even for those who are scary-cats! (Like me)


Monster: Exists.

Me: *Middle finger* 

Monster: I'm scared

beautiful literature



I didn't think a game with this style would scare me. I was wrong! 


it's good spooky time!


Somebody put zombies in my Obra Dinn! 

Thank you for this game it is great. I was afraid and frightened but it was fun. i like the grafic style and you can see it is not important to make photorealistic grafic to make good games.

You must make more games like this they are really cool :) i gave this 5 stars

This game was very interesting it was scary but with a sense of humor to go along with it like going around and flipping off the monsters overall look and design  stands out alot so definitely 5/5 stars really did enjoy this one great job!

Soooo fuckin scary but funny af at same time i got goosebumps and lafter there omfg so guud!

Funny and cool twist on a horror game! I think the graphics worked wonders to make it a lot more intense, there were a lot of moments where I kind of panicked because I couldn't see ANYTHING in the distance. Overall a really awesome game!

Really fun and unique game! Interesting story and a fun twist to the normal horror game! 


It was fun adding humor to horror game. I could feel fear despite the bad graphics.

한줄평: 방송용으로 최고의 게임

i enjoyed this :D


Hello there! i hope you dont mind but i made a video on your game! i gotta say that i scared my socks off in this one, and the flipping finger thing was a funny factor of this game! and my bad i mmmiiggghhtttvvee accidentally stumbled upon that hidden room wayy too early in my video XD what luck amirite? 


So good.

This game easily conveys my feelings towards jumpscares, but I had a lot of fun with it. The limited vision, pixel art, and color pallet definitely sets a Game Boy horror feel. On a site saturated over-saturated with overrated horror games, this one stands out. If you think it looks interesting, download it and play it.

why does it show to middle finger?

(1 edit) (+1)

Got demons, ghosts, or vampires!? Playing this game will show you the true way to get those baddies to FUCK off.

This game looks fun but :

1 - I can't see the title page, all I see is a black screen (the sound is working though)

2 - What does it mean by 'joystick'?

(1 edit)

A joystick is basically an old kind of controller with just one analog stick and a couple of buttons, per se. There are more advanced joysticks like the ones used for fighting games. It's aimed for singular movement.

This is the best thing I ever played, seriously, scary, funny, and kinda true! I might have to do more of this, feel free to check out my experience so far! ps love the atmosphere, overall love it!

I'm the only one bold (or crazy enough) to put the "holy symbol" in the thumbnail. It's literally the greatest idea for a horror game. Literally anyone who has played a horror game has given it the middle finger now you can do so in a game!  This guy has the best "force of will" XD I'm dying!

This game is so interesting! Here's a bit of my gameplay...
