Oh nooo ^^' Thank you for playing! :D

don't get me wrong I had a lot of fun. but I did not expect that XD I am not a person who plays many horror games so I was defiantly spooked as I did not read any comments so I went in thinking it was a cute little repair game XD Boy was I wrong. great job

Awesome game and concept. I love the idea of taking something seemingly mundane (such as being a cute handy worker game), and turning it into a horror. Lovely art style and audio. Lots of surprises and brilliantly addictive. Throughly enjoyed this one!

Enjoyable plythrough there! You have almost predicted everything haha. Thanks for playing! :D

I didnt know this was a scary game until i saw that long thing and then i read the descripton and i see this Not suitable for those who are easily disturbed. and then i find out this is really a horror game and i thought nothing of it ;-; well ill keep playing

(+1)

it was a great for my sub milestone video!!

JAJAJ me diverti un monton. 

I didnt bother to read the description at first which said "Not suitable for those who are easily disturbed". Then found out this game is innocent look in front then sudden twist to dark scary.Love this kind of game. 

wait it does? oh... well ill continue playing then lol

(+1)

I know it kinda beats the point, but i wish there was a tag specifically for games that look something then twist into something else.

Can anyone recommend me another game like this?

I used to play this game when it first came out and then I lost it and forgot the title. I re-found it last week. The computer image comes up, the screen goes dark, and the game never loads. I've tried many times on different days. Is this a problem on my end? Does anybody know how to fix this?

...the tags. I have to check the tags.

im stuck on lvl 4

Its Kindah creepy

What's the deal with the red dude

I'm new here and didn't realized I didn't read the tags so you got me really spooked!!! Good job!

This was so much fun!

Good job!

 I still liked the game anyway, despite the demons. Great game. Me and the demons had a jolly good time playing it. It felt like Doki Doki Literature Club, as how it started out all cute-like, then it turned pretty dark. Great work!

When you be playing at two am in the dark and then in real life your door opens by itself and you realize the demons from the other horror games you played thirty minutes ago have followed you into real life.

Why do so many games have to mentally scar me?

had a hell of a good time playing your game, many thanks!

heres a video i made playing it!

does the game end at job 4? cause idk what to do when it says to run. like where do I run? really good game

I know this is a little late, but the game ends after completing job 4. In the top left it tells you what to repair. You basically have to do the jobs really fast. The monster doesn't move extremely quickly, so it's not too hard if you know where to go. Hope this helps!

Super enjoyable game! From the friendly visuals down to the suspenseful gameplay, I really had fun with this one. I hope you get a chance to check out my gameplay :)

ah such a nice twist!! i loved it!! <3

What a good game ! The last level was so stressful when we have to repair the last thing. Very good !

i almost got a hert attack... now this was unexpected

I got to play with nuts and tiny boxes. Worth every moment.

oh my god this was amazing and horrible.

Thanks! :D

I opened it cause it looked cute, while repairing the closet, i saw it and closed everything :) but i still liked it  

RIIGGGHHHHHTTTT??? The thing killed me, on the 4th job, the only reason I continued playing was because my little sister was watching.

Hahaha thank you for playing! The pressure from the little sister was so cute!

I love you and hate you all at the same time... man this was really well put together. Any plans to take it further?

Thank you for playing! Right now, we have no plans in taking it further as we decided that it has a good ending already and members are pre-occupied with work stuff ^^' But thanks for taking interest!

I won't ever make it to the ending 

Very well done... I really thought this was going to be a very basic game... You guys really did surprise me. Great job at being very original.

Very unassuming game, nice work

Thank you for playing! :D 

I knew it, I made it to job 2, when I was fixing the Tv and the lights went out for a split second, I was getting ready to turn the game off, I'm not even sure if this is horror, I just finished the second job, I jumped when the lights turned out, and instantly to the comments. I see one at the top that says, I like not horror games, thats scary too, because they meant to say, 'I don't like horror games'

Finish it! hahah just kidding. Thanks! :D

When I was about to finish job 3, it said feed me, I don't want to feed it, I still played the level. I'm in the house and it's talking about fixing a stove or something. How does he know to fix the stuff when it just says feed me, that's when I turned it off, I'm not feeding nothing that tells me to feed it.  The way it put different accents on the letters was scary, once I started the job, I clicked the back button.

I like not horror games

Thank you ^^'

Oh you no like to thank goodness I like some of them though like fallout equestria ( the only real "horror" game i really like )

What?

This is such a great game. The way it seems innocent and cute in the beginning and how it COMPLETELY stays the same. Definitely NOTHING disturbing about the game whatsoever!

(+1)

Definitely cute, that's all! Thank you! :D

怖かった/I was afraid :D

It's okay :D Thanks!
