You’re my most important treasure....
You’re all I have left....
But....I can’t leave you alone....
....I can’t let you suffer....
That’s why....please....


The year is 1821. Nikanor finds himself at the bottom of a cliff and no memory of how he ended up there. Also his mother is nowhere to be seen and his house is not quite how he remembers it.

Confused and determined to be reunited with his disappeared mother, Nikanor is forced to venture through the nonsensical places inside his house. Will things ever go back to how they used to be?

Claroscuro is an RPGMaker adventure/horror game and prequel to Expiatora.

Claroscuro Demo v1.2 Release!

The final demo is finally out! It features a little more content this time around (covering the prologue and half of Chapter 1), but I'm satisfied with it.

Oh hell yeah, I'm proud of myself for instantly recognizing the art style and guessing you also made Expiatora. Speaking of which, that game looks amazing and I'm excited for it and everything, but this one just looks so much more up my alley I think it might actually be the one I'm more excited for out of the two. Really hoping to play this whenever it's ready!
Oh, this looks like a neat game! I should probably play the first game before the sequel is finished. Subbed
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
I love this art!!!
Can't waitttttt
Me encanta! ^_^
Pero muy oscuro jajaja
Kidding. Looks great.
Looking really good! Wonderful writing on character for the children, nice mapping and beautiful artwork. : )

So I wasn’t planning to play the demo and would’ve just waited for the full game but I couldn’t help myself. I don’t like to write reviews for demos so I’ll just leave my thoughts down here.

So far i think this demo was completely average. It’s very very short and not a whole lot happens, so of course, my opinion will likely change when it comes to the full game. As it stands, though, it’s an intro that feels all too familiar due to its similarity to many other rpg horror games. The writing doesn’t particularly stand out, and many ideas presented feel unoriginal. The visuals are definitely gorgeous, but unfortunately as games like Pocket Mirror have proven visuals alone can’t really save a bad or average game. I’m sure the game will get better as it goes along, or at least it won’t get worse, but so far if I were to score the demo it would probably something like a 5 or 6 out of 10. Still, I’m excited to see where this project goes and have faith that it’ll get much better when it’s finished. There’s really great media with very weak introductions that gets a lot better in the second or third quarter, so I hope this isn’t discouraging. As it stands, this intro could just be a little stronger. Good luck with the rest of development!

Thanks for your review! Tbh I didn't expect one, so this was surprising.
Hmm.....about the intro, it didn't show anything significant and it was fairly short, so your first impression is understandable. Anyway, thanks for believing in this project! I'll work hard so the finished product won't disappoint in the end!

Uhh....sorry to ask this, but should I take your comment as sarcasm?

To me it comes off pretty sarcastic with the images.
Like what is it suppose to convey?
Since it's not showing like you enjoyed it, if you post images from what seems to be a YT video of people who look bored.

Also one image saying "It's not worth my time" that isn't something I would view as unconditional love. Like there's other ways to give feedback than to just spam images.
Best to just ignore them tbh.
