One stormy night at the onset of what should have been a nostalgic trip to the lake, Easter and his friends make a pit stop at an old, abandoned house along the side of the road. What should have been a short-lived indoor camping adventure, however, turns into a hellish nightmare when something begins hunting them down one-by-one.

The house is not what it seems, and memories from the boys’ past could be the key to everything… if they can only make it through the night.

  • Search for clues to reveal the truth!

  • Immersive sound effects bring the events (too close) to life in your ears!

  • All-new cutscene images help to enhance the story and characters!

  • Four different endings depending on how much of the story you uncover—can you unlock the true ending?




PLEASE NOTE:

This game is recommended for mature audiences only on account of:

  • Strong language
  • Disturbing, thematic elements
  • Pixelated gore
  • Sexual violence
  • Mentions of rape and child abuse


Please make sure you're comfortable with the above subject matter before playing this game. It goes to some pretty dark places and is definitely not for the young and squeamish. The last thing I want is to traumatize or offend anyone who's unsure of what they're getting into!

Happy Easter! Major Update: Easter 2.0 (New Definitive Edition)



Happy Easter from Easter!

Carrot here! Given that today is the “Easter-versary” of Easter, I thought it seemed a fitting day for an update—and what an update! I finally got off my lazy ass and whipped up some new content for the game, which I hope will really enhance the experience and perhaps clear up a few things in the story, as well. That’s why I’m calling this new version the “Definitive Edition,” as I think it helps get across my vision for the game a bit better than the original. Though who knows, maybe next Easter, I’ll come up with a “Super Definitive Edition”! But if I do, slap me, because I should be working on the new game I have in (very early) (very procrastinated) development.

At any rate, onto the good stuff. What’s new in this version?


- 1 New Ending: A new “easy” ending. This was supposed to be in the original version of the game, but I had so much on my plate around the launch date that it got skipped over. It’s now back in. It actually makes the “normal” ending a bit harder to get, as you now need to at least do something to proceed.

- 3 New Scenes: Three new secret scenes have been added in the “True Ending” track. These will bring to light some events from the past that were never explicitly explored before, hopefully making things a bit clearer.

- Tweaks/Polish Added to 2 True Endings: The two main endings have been tweaked a bit to make them feel more separate from each other. This was something I wasn’t all that happy with before, so I’m glad for the chance to give them a bit more love.

- New Music Tracks: A few places where I wasn’t happy with the music tracks have been changed to music I feel is more appropriate to the scene and tone.

- Small Immersive Additions: Various small additions have been made throughout the game to increase immersion.

- ALL-NEW CUTSCENE IMAGES!: Probably the biggest part of the new version (at least what took me the most time to finish) are the brand-new cutscene images I’ve drawn for key scenes throughout the game. I hope these will be able to better translate the story and impact where my amateurish pixel animations left a bit to be desired.

- Various Fixes: As always, a few more bugs and textual errors have been addressed, hopefully making this the most bug-free version yet. Emphasis on “hopefully.”

I hope you enjoy the new content for Easter, and thank you to everyone who’s played the game!

Oh! Someone was playing it on Twitch? I've had some people share their YouTube Let's Plays with me, but I didn't know anyone was playing it on Twitch. Then again, I get on Twitch so rarely that I don't even know how to use it properly, so that's probably my fault, lol.

Yeah, the ending especially gets a bit dark, but I hope that won't scare too many people away. I wanted to try to combine the more fantastical horror of the classic RPG horror games with more real-life horrors that could happen to normal people to give it a different feel, but I know it won't be everyone's cup of tea. Thank you for watching the playthrough, though!
THIS IS MARVELOUS!
I've never played a game like this. I totally love it. I like gore and horror games. A 2009 game has always been my favourite since now. Thanks you a lot for mading this. 5 Stars

Why is the Saving Menu in Japanese?

Why is the Saving Menu in Japanese?


That's weird. The version I've uploaded here to RMN should have that issue fixed. I originally purchased VX Ace years ago when I lived in Japan, so the interface is all in Japanese, and at first I couldn't figure out how to go in and changed the save/load menu text, but in the last couple of versions of the game (including this one), that issue is fixed and it's all in English.

Did you notice that issue on this version or in one of the videos? I know many of the Let's Plays are all on older versions where it's still in Japanese.
I see I have an older Version 1.05 that's it.
Another Thing. I can't figure out the Password. Btw. I'm from Germany.

Oh, good! That's a relief from my end. Was afraid something was acting up in the game. If you want, you can download the most recent version (the one here on RMN) as it'll have a few other fixes besides that, and you can just copy your save file over.

As for the password...
...try killing Easter (or checking out a vid so you can see the game over screen without having to do it yourself). There should be a very interesting series of letters and numbers there that you can try out... :)


Also, hey! I'm actually in Germany myself! I currently live in Berlin, though I'm originally from the US :D

I'm at the other end of Germany.

I got all 3 "Keys" and it looks like the true Endling.
But what you mean with that?
14. I got past the default ending, but how can I get two different endings from here?
o You’ll be given a choice. You can either do what you’re asked or… don’t.

I got nowhere something were I can make a Choise.

Have you gotten to another set of ending credits?
As for the choice:
The choice happens in the room when Nester confronts Easter. To get one of the endings, you can do what he tells you to do (kill him with the tweezers). To get the other ending, don't do anything after he tells you to kill him. Instead, just wait.

Ah that's it.
I thought I need either kill Easter or Nester for the choice.
Oh dear.... I shipped them so much... dran Nester and Easter.
omg wait! I just realize they are brother!! adafsafsf
Holy Crap!!! This story fucked up my brain xD

And I'm not sure that I understood who did what... But it was a nice game! The part there I had to listen the steps to went throught the dark hallway get me some hard time.
I would like to know were did you take the name of the chararcters... I mean they're strange, and Olie looks like a girl and that fucked my brain even more.

I get all the three endings (I think there are only three of them) and I can't figured out if it was Easter all along the "bad guy" or else. Anyway good game!

AHAHA!!
Yes, that's a bit of a kick in the shorts when it's revealed, lol.


Thanks for playing my game, and I'm glad you enjoyed it! :)
Okay, so I came back to this game today completely by chance to be greeted with a new update! I just wanted to say, I love this game, and I'm excited to hear you'll be working on another!
However, if you don't mind answering a question, there's been one maybe kinda dumb question that's been on my mind since I first played the game.
When you're in Muggy's flashback, Easter is trying to say something to him. I have never been able to string the words together to figure out just what he was trying to say, and it actually originally kept me on that screen for a long time. I might just be dumb, but boy, I really want to know what he's saying because I wanted to hear all the dialogue in this game.

Thank you so much!! It makes me all sorts of happy to hear that people enjoy the game. I hope that the update will be able to add a bit more to the story and characters. And yes, slowly, but ever so surely... another one is in progress. Just hope I'll be able to follow through lol.

And as for your question:


It's never outright said in the game, but one of the reasons Easter takes our his aggression on his friends (besides the fact that because of his dad he basically stopped feeling empathy) was that they all didn't do something to help him (even though they're just kids, so... of course they wouldn't know what to do).
I played the game, and I must say you did an amazing job! The atmosphere, the sounds, the graphics, the animations! I mean, this is your first game right? It's too good to be your first one! Good job! There are some things about the story that I don't understand though..

I had "the normal ending". I watched the other endings on yt and I can't figure out when Easter hurt his friends (like Nester said). That one ending when Easter strangled Nester was so confusing. Did Easter do all the bad things in the house to his friends? Or was it when they were kids? Was he the one wearing the mask? But then again, Nester almost killed him in the kitchen.. Was it really him, but he wanted to forget, so he actually did forget it? I don't get it. Last thing, who is Mr. Fishborn? Sorry, maybe I missed something and it caused all this confusion. But other than that it was amazing! I noticed just now that there are hands on Easter's shoulders in the game's image. I guess, they are his father's?

Ps: Is Olie a boy or a girl?

Btw, my favourite character is Muggy!

Thank you so much for playing the game and I'm so happy that you enjoyed it!! I like Muggy, too, ahaha. He's such a motormouth.

As for your questions:

Everything that actually happens inside the house is, indeed, a dream that Easter keeps having, which is why it's a mixture of all his memories and his feelings of guilt. Basically, the things that HE did as a kid are all reenacted, just in different ways, and Nester was the one who always knew what he was doing and grew to hate him as a kid, so in the dream, he's the one teaching Easter and his friends a lesson (even though, in real life, it was Easter that did all the things). Did you see the part of the true ending where you play Easter's "GameStation Portable"? This is where it shows what really happened—how Easter was the one who gave Muggy the bleach, Easter that lured Totl beneath the arcade, and Easter that took pictures of his dad's affair with Olie's mom, all of which are what led to Easter's friends getting hurt. The mask, too, is from his memories, as it looks exactly like the smiling pendant that Nester made for him at school.

Mr. Fishborn is Olie's dad. Ahaha, this was one of the things I realized wasn't all that clear and why, in the new 2.0 version, I added three new scenes to the ending. Now, in the true ending track, you can see flashbacks of exactly what happened to each of Easter's friends following the things that he did, which I think will help explain things better (and you see more of Mr. Fishborn here). Olie's mom was having an affair with Easter's dad, so Easter figured out a way to pay his dad back for everything he did to him by photographing them and leaving the pictures in Olie's house. Mr. Fishborn was already depressed because he recently got laid off, and then he sees the pictures and goes off the deep end. He kills Easter's dad (this is the kitchen scene you see in the "Bonus Stage" of the "GameStation Portable" part), then returns home and kills Olie's mom. When he notices that Olie saw him, he crushes Olie's eyes (this is in one of the new scenes in the 2.0 update).

I hope that helps! I made the game to potentially have different interpretations so that people could try and guess what happened and come up with their own theories, but a few of the things were still a bit too vague, which is why I added the new scenes in the new version.

Also, Olie is a guy, ahaha. But people are free to think of him however they want to! He's a bit androgynous like that. I don't mind if people think he's a girl, too.
