"You thought this was a good idea, didn't you?"

Hidden deep in the forest and surrounded by mountains, there seems to be a place called "Crimson Leaves", described by urban legends as an abandoned town, stained by a tragic past. Though the town's existence is discussed, this won't stop a group of five teenagers who want to visit this place to have fun. What they don't know is that they're making a huge mistake: soon, a violent feeling will start to grow in their minds: "No one is to be trusted here."

"Around me, crimson-stained leaves" is a short horror videogame with point&click, exploration and suspense elements. Shortly after entering the abandoned town of "Crimson Leaves", the protagonist will find himself alone as all of his friends have gone missing. While exploring the place, he will realize that there's something terrible going on, as he witnesses a murder and realizes the lives of everyone are at risk.
Multiple scenes will require the player to react quickly to survive, either by hiding from a threat, struggling against a character or controlling the protagonist's thoughts.

This looks good! I am downloading it right now!

Edit: I've just finished playing it, and it was pretty cool! It's short, but really well done nevertheless! I liked the maps, they were well made and structured. I recognized FSM tileset: that was a very good choice! I LOVE them! And they gave the town that "creepy abandoned" vibes. The atmosphere was also pretty good. I think it would be better if you added some background music though... Not in the town, I think that the wind effect there is enough. Maybe in the dungeon though. Maybe adding some footsteps sound would also be a good idea. They would give that "really silent echoing" effect... if you know what I mean. The story is also good. What it surprised me the most was the kind of gameplay (with gameplay I mean that thingie with the mouse). For me it's original, I've never seen something like that in a RPG maker game. I think there were some typos here and there, but that's ok. I'm not a native english speaker myself so... yeah, that didn't affect the game for me ;)

Long story short: PRETTY GOOD GAME! I'VE REALLY ENJOYED PLAYING IT! WELL DONE! >u<

SPOILER ALERT!
I KNEW that it wasn't Alan's fault! I mean... at the end he was innocent, right? It was Carl the murderer... Or did I misunderstand the ending?!

Thanks for playing! I'm glad you enjoyed it.
I do agree that the game is too silent on certain points, but I felt that adding music would've killed the atmosphere a bit. The footsteps, that's something I'll keep in mind (I didn't add too many sounds to avoid audio lag, MV is a bit annoying in that aspect >_>).
It's really nice to hear that you found the gameplay original! I put a lot of effort in those "panic" moments.

About spoiler stuff~

Who knows! The strange girl may be lying to mess with Alan's mind, or... she may be telling the truth, and Alan turns out to be the evil one.
I left that scene unexplained so players can make their own theories about it.
The game is running slow in my computer...
Any help ?

Is this the only RPGMakerMV game running slow in your computer?
I know MV runs a bit slow in some computers though i tried to not overload this game with graphics/events.
Closing other apps in your computer may help.

If the problem persists and other MV games run perfectly fine for you, tell me and I'll try to find a way to improve the game's performance.
Hey there! I just finished playing and I must say I really enjoyed it.
The mapping, the facesets (with emotions which I VERY MUCH appreciate) and even the cutscenes were very good. Maybe some bgm in the dungeon would be great. Overall, well done!

Btw, I knew Alan was the one who killed his friends when Lisa was not there and only Carl's cap was to be seen. Wait there is only one ending right? Oh, and Lisa, was Alan the one who killed her? Either I didn't pay attention or it wasn't shown if Lisa was killed in the flashbacks.

Keep up the good work!

Thanks for playing! If I update the game in the future to fix some stuff, I'll find a good bgm for the last dungeon.

About your question:

Yes, there is only one ending, as this game was supposed to be a short project.
Alan was the one who killed Lisa: it is shown when she sees him and Jake in the cave, then he attacks her, second flashback I think.
The other scene where Alan saw Carl killing her was pretty much an hallucination.
