Horror in the Darkness for PC and MAC

I loved it! Reminded me of Zork. I will definitely be buying your second installment. Only thing that bugged me were the little ads at the top but I know you have to make money somehow. The only hint I needed was the fertilizer hint! Not bad eh? I really liked finding the secret room, finding the metal rod, and using the hammer. Also, using the butter knife was cool! Haha. It's all about the little things. Thanks for a great game!

Pretty fun, didn't actually need the hints, but I was in full detective mode. I would almost like it without the feature too, take away the temptation of cheating. Did wish it was a bit longer with more dangers and the ending did fall a little flat. I will be checking out the rest of these stories though. Reminds me almost of the old choose your scare goosebumps books I loved as a kid.

For the simplistic style, I was surprised how much I liked it. The puzzles were facil, but it was a nice adventure. I did often get confused about where I was, but there's a map. It would've helped, been cooler, and very nice if there were graphics or illustrations. Great, quick, free game!

really neat little story. i do wish you could confirm hints before reading them though. i accidentally read a hint and it spoiled a section of the plot. going to download the sequel next!!

It's about time there's a spooky game without any jumpscares!!!! The conrol is a bit confusing at first but you get the hang of it after a few moves. A lot of other reviews said it was too short, I do agree although it's a good introduction to the sequel :)

Overall really good game. My only complaints are that it was short and that there was no "fast-travel" function to places you'd already been on the map

Spooky. It was fun, only had to use a hint once but I liked that there was a hint feature. Reminded me of the old text games before graphics! Great job :)

It's really good on how you came up with a story like that. Keep up the good work and also pls. Include the information about the person (his age, gender, and name)

Had it beat in about an hour, there really was no climax, and the ending felt lazy to me. Other than that, phenomenal, I loved it and am honestly butthurt that it was not longer than it was!

I enjoyed this game very much so and would enjoy a sequel but not for its asking price, I'm cheap and prefer free,I've played games like this via command prompt, but I found this game to be more of a puzzle then a horror game. Kudos

This was very fun. I'm a big fan of interactive stories, so it was pretty cool to play this. This is also great to have if you need to waste a little time if you have nothing to do. :)

Spooked me out thoroughly, but it's surprisingly short. I didn't realize I was at the end when I finished the whole thing.

Very short game...But well done. Since playing this game along with the next two installments, I've been trying to find other games like them but haven't had any luck.

Just the perfect ammount of mistery and horror every text-based game needs. Great plot though short an just intriguing enough for me not to stop playing until I finished it.

Very well done. Reminds me of the old text based games on early computers. Very visual language, but you have set commands and a map which is very useful. I'm glad that not only this style is being used, but with horror themes that it meshes perfectly with. Can't wait for more :)

These are the sorts of gamebooks I've been looking for long.The writing is classy with distinct Lovecraftian flavour and the familiar unexplained horrors featured sort of gives the essence of a quick and neat short story.However,introductions would help a little bit more to delve into the situation in case of reading it first.

This reminded me of Shadowgate despite its lack of pictures. Very thematic and fun little story. I look forward to the sequel.

Great idea that works! I was afraid the plot would be sub par, but it was good.

Amazing little game; really captures the feel of old "choose your own adventure" books as well as Lovecraft's work. Wish there were more illustrations, but the mechanics are faultless. 10/10 would play again

Super eerie, not too long, and thankfully not too hard! Very grateful for the hints when I needed it. Can't wait for more!

A cute little game, I love text based adventures. The UI is good, maybe could be a little prettier, though I'm not totally sure how. Not like there's much to improve with buttons lol. The game is short and uncomplicated, but I liked it :)

The only annoying thing was the forest nap vanished. Good thing I remembered the directions.

It was a nice adventure.I never played these types of games but now i'm looking forward to playing the sequel.

Loved the game! It's us a nice easy introduction into text adventures. I would personally like something a little harder, but still plenty fun.

It's ok but a little to stuborn. Not to many valid options & allwais turning in circles...

I had a blast playing this game. Only took me about 2 hours to beat but loved it! Great story line! Ready for part 2!

It's an okay Lovecraftian text adventure. A cute little time waster to whet your appetite for Lovecraft.

Short story but engaging nonetheless. A++ guys. I love text based games and this is the first decent one i played in a while. Heading to play the sequel now... brb

Everything about this is perfect in my eyes. Good amount of humor in just the right places, great story, and a true love story to both Lovecraft and Infocom text adventures! Thank you!

It's hard to find a good text adventure these days. Luckly, this one was made with greate care and skill. Recommended to anyone looking for a good oldfashioned text mistery

I would like to be able to shrink the map view so you don't have to scroll back and forth so much. Otherwise it was a fun game.

A classic style game, it's interesting to search for clues and unlike delight games it has useful visuals in the form of an interactive map. Im glad games like this are still going, with this game being both rewarding and entertaining with a dark but interesting element throughout. However this has its faults. The story is pretty two dimensional and can be completed in less than ten minutes if you know where to look. There is good atmosphere in the storytelling but there is no sense of fear and dread as the only monster in the game comes early on and is vanquished by accident on my behalf. Also, the main focus of the story is a let down (spoilers for the next sentence) with the artifact being just put back and that's all folks. Many solutions that could help further the story have also been overlooked and that's quite annoying in itself when you can think of several solutions to a problem that has to be resolved with an item. The hints are a lifesaver in this regard. Overall a solid 3.5 out of 5 but I'll round it up to a 4 because it's free which is the right way to keep interactive fiction alive. The next chapter I won't be reading because there is a cost, which is reflected in the number of downloads, which is unfortunate as the story has promise and one i woud have liked to continue. I can't reply to your comment so I'll bolt it on here in hopes you might read it (cudos for being so active in the comments section also) what I said earlier may have sounded a little too harsh, and I understand the need for money to continue these types of games. However, I believe restricting the entire game behind a pay wall won't get you the results you are looking for, with far less people (like me) point blank refusing to pay and missing out on an otherwise decent story. If I were you, I would copy what Delight games have elegantly put into place, or any "free to play " game. I would allow people to read the stories and maybe add options for unlocking extras such as achievements or bonus features etc or even a donations page to tell your readers your situation. Maybe add a little side story onto the main one that you need to unlock with the option of buying it outright? Or even allow gamers who are stuck to buy quest items or bonus info for a few pennies etc. I'm sure you would gain more money in little amounts from a far greater number of people over those prepared to buy the game outright. Anyhow I hope this helps you understand my perspective and besides my points I'm reading your 3rd story which is turning out to be very good. Keep it up.

I love old school text adventures. It's so refreshing to find a well-done one in this day and age. Great game!

Got stuck in archeological dig can't do much

It was fun and intricate but there was no indication of what I was supposed to do. I only half understand what happened. Fun game, good for passing the time.

The ambient sound and music was fantastic for getting in the mood. A little too easy for my tastes, but still a very good game.

This is actually a pretty entertaining game. Not at all what I thought it would be when I first got into it. Definitely going to go download the sequel!!

I loved every minute I spent on this, it was able to create such a grotesque picture in your mind with the language it used, and I loved how it ended

Why isn't the sequel free? It's a shame.

Great game but a little short if it wasnt fo the second and third installment(why dowe have to pay though) :(
