Well, this game certainly looks interesting. Kinda looks like the game Contact... but in a survival horror game. I like it!

Gotta admit, I do very much like the game. Not the best. However it has a style and charm to it that is unlike most others. Kinda like Deadly Premonition if you will.

I like it. I thought it was going to be zombies, but the monsters look more like out of Silent Hill.

I love those flawed but charming and interesting games!

Quite a bit of the game definitely seems inspired by Silent Hill (the japanese ones, that is).

I am way into this game. I am also a huge fan of older survival horror games, but this feels like one of the coolest horror games to come out in a while. The same guy made a Silent Hill 2 Demake awhile back so I know he is a fan. I really hope this games gets more buzz cus I would love to see more stuff from Superflat. He also has a pretty cool platformer on Adult Swim called Soul Brother.

I think this game's phenomenal. I've been looking for a game like this for a long, long time. I only wished that Superflat had more money and resources to make this a much bigger game. 'I Am Alive' wishes it could smell this game's taint.

This game is the shit and you all should play it immediately.

#12 Posted by Dezztroy (733 posts) -

Hoping we might see a Quick Look in the future. This game deserves more attention.

THIS! A thousand times this.

This game is basically a combination of what I AM ALIVE and Silent Hill: Downpour should've been.

Do you have Adobe Flash Player and/or Adobe Air installed? Same thing happened to me, and as far as I can figure, installing those two things fixed it.

Are you perhaps on OSX? You have a link in your purchase email to a "projector" client that should fix the black screen issue.

So, am I the only one who looked at the sprite and thought that face mask was Glenn Quagmire's shit eating grin? Now that I know it isn't I still can't unsee it.

Cant believe i just bought this game on a whim after seeing this on the front page.

What do you mean? All you need to do is hit esc and x once or twice.

I've played the demo and it seems to be really well done for an indie title. The overall sound of the game is especially great and so I guess I'll buy a copy by the end of the week. Edit: Oh and by the way, I'm still standing by my "Fuck Jim Stirling Policy" but at least he gave those guys a positive quote for the website (scroll down a bit).

Gonna admit, this game is pretty spooky :P

Got it this morning before work. Can't wait to play it when I get home.

I never thought that a side-scrolling psychological survival horror would be capable of intimidating me.

It looks very interesting.  A pity I almost don't use my laptop anymore.

#30 Posted by ZagZagovich (737 posts) -

This game is really good. If you are disappointed with what silent hill has become over the last few years you really should check it out. Also please buy this game. The man who did it is almost at the point of starvation. He sacrificed a lot to make it as good as it is and I hope you guys will appreciate it.

@MajesticOverlord:

I pretty sure it will. The atmosphere and writing is very good and side-scrolling perspective is actually more immersive because of it's limitations. You can't cheese the dangers so you feel uncomfortable most of the time.

Hi Guys, I'm Jasper the developer's brother. Feedback has been awesome, including here : )

Until now I haven't been a regular here - just wondering what the best way to submit the game for a quick look might be? The timing should be good as there's big news coming for the game..

Don't really know if you submit to have a Quick Look of your game. They tend to play what they are curious about. BUT if they don't know about a game a see no harm in informing them on it.

@Nick_Byrne: Maybe try to get in touch with Patrick Klepek, he appreciates the indie titles most I believe. And especially horror ones.

#34 Posted by Nick_Byrne (2 posts) -

Cheers, I'll give Patrick a shout.

This game is much better than any horror game I've played in modern times.

It baffles me that people call games like "Dead Space" a survival horror, when all you do is shoot you're way through waves and waves of aliens.

Anyway great game and I recommend it to any survival horror junkie.

@Nick_Byrne: No problem, Glad to see the site got it covered! Great game just completed it.

Now just to update the non-steam version! I'll give it another playthrough when that's done
