The story reminds me awfully lot of a game called Obscure ;( and yeah the screes are awfully dark. But I guess it could be exciting nevertheless, good luck.

Don't worry, It'll be more on to a Silent Hill side than Obscure - which is dread.
Once you exit the school, you explore the streets, enter hotels, apartments, etc.
The light differs for each place and so does the filter I use.

Looks like it will be awesome!
Looks very similar to a RM2K game I was going to make a while ago, similar to Clocktower!
Hope it goes well! ;D

Thanks for the replies. I accept all replies.

I have edited the events to make rooms lighter so you can actually see. o_O
The flashlight is now easier to manage and brighter.
The game is still en route to a Q1 2009 release and the demo is still expected to be released around Halloween - so keep tuning back to this topic everyday for the latest information!

Sort of reminds me of a renovated Sweet Home, or this one Japanese game for SNES, where you build a party and explore a haunted mansion. (I can't remember the title.)

98. “OMGWTF” is not a spell.
May I ask something?
Did I read right and the game plays in Japan?
If it is so, then why do the characters have english names?
It's really no big deal, I just think it is weird for a japanese setting to have characters with english names walking around.
If I just have understood something wrong or there is a good reason to it, please, never mind me.
(Just wondering)

Other than that:
I'm a big fan of Silent Hill and Survival Horror in general.
So I will wait for your demo.  :)

It's good for you to point out they're English names, which is I what I aimed for. ^^
Basically they immigrated to Japan, like Silent Hill, "something" was calling them.

And hope you, and many others, enjoy this hardly-worked demo!

Yay, the demo!
*downloads and plays it*

Well, it's really dark.
As soon as I stepped into the buliding I had to brighten my screen as much as I could and I still had troubles with seeing something.  :(
I also had three Game Overs in the first run.
But I think that's ok, sometimes I'm just too stupid to play.  ;D

Oh and I like the Silent Hill sound effects - because I like Silent Hill.
I'll try it again later.  :)

Sorry if I can't say much else about it yet.  :-[
Just wanted to let you know what I think up until now.  ;)

Thanks. ^^
It will be better (at least for me) if it's a bit lighter.

Oh yeah.
First right at his entrance (I was too surprised), second during the chase (I was lame *lol*) and third because I didn't know where to run to (stupid me XD).
