Plot:
On a very snowy and dark morning, Yuuki Shinozaki, a shy middle schooler, was preparing for her trip to a farewell party of her school...but an unfortunate tragedy happened. When Yuuki was helping her friend, Taiga, to look for his lost handphone, she was taken mysteriously to a lost, dark dimension where a big, mysterious mansion existed. Yuuki didn't know...that this is all just the beginning of her NIGHTMAREs in THE SNOWy and freezing night...

This game is heavily inspired by Fatal Frame (sets in a mansion.) It is recommended to play this game in a dark room with headphones attached at night. Remember that when you're lost, try examining everything as this is a story-and-exploration based game ;)

Gameplay features:
-3:00 to 5:00 hours of normal gameplay, and about 1:30 to 2:00 hours on NewGame+ speedrun
-Stamina system
-Unique deaths
-Seven endings, with one ending being canon among them
-etc

The main characters of the game are:
YUUKI, a shy middleschooler.

TAIGA, a somewhat coward but reliable guy. He got crush on Yuuki.

KAYAKO, an extremely tomboy & tsundere girl.

If the game's difficulty is too unfair or you have a suggestion, feel free to leave a comment about that :D
So it has jumpscare, hah?
A picture of a girl show up when you are walking, right?

Well, the floor is hard to see...It will be difficult to complete the chasing scenario if the floor's not visible enough.

ok after around 15-20 mins of playing i got to the area where it says now theirs traps be careful and think to avoid them o.o
but...i cant see anything!how can i avoid them if the floor is pretty much invisible 95% of the time?!

indeed letting my self get absorbed into the game i jumped a few times up to this point but as it is its more annoying then entertaining

the deaths become irritating quickly rather then scary

since i did not play the full game i cant really give a rating but ill just say i did not enjoy this

p.s i read the 1st comment about turning up the brightness but thats vauge
should be more specific on things
theirs no setting for that in game or in the game files i could find
did he mean the screen? or the settings for the pc it self?

Edit replay 8/4/2015

Random thoughts

i can never get used to people having the time and date in a different format then M/D/Y

the sound entering the menu is extremely loud!

why does it tell us her unaware is "trendy" is that relevant to anything?

the mother said if your done come "outside" so why is she standing in the hall in front of your room door?

why is the mother telling her what time it is??? she has a computer that she was just on and i am sure she has a cell phone...AND a clock!
she probably knows what time it is!

dialog can be improved a bit. some pointless words in sentences.like...
"We have just bought this yesterday." you don't need "have just" there. yesterday makes that obvious!

not being able to sprint is annoying

ok i cant handle the dialog it keeps getting worse dropping this.


Overall
needs a heavy script re-write

Well, that's why I'm gonna lower the darkness. Even myself found it difficult to progress with the overly dark environment.
Is there still something after the end of chapter 0?
when I finish chapter zero,this sign has shown up: unable to find file:Data/Map001.rvdata2

Another question~ Is 実況play allowed?The game is very interesting so I would like to share it whit more people.
