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.

I'm currently playing the game and I'm planning to make a review :D. Meanwhile, I've found some bug/glitch from chapter 0-1-2.

Spoiler ahead, beware !
• Yuuki's house : When you walk as Yuuki on the couch (The one next to her room), her head passed right through
• Kirihara mansion : The spikes' location appear on the bloodstains when you exit a room (especially the one who hold the key to the exit)
• Kirihara mansion : The brightness of some rooms (when you come in) is high then suddenly become low. It happens in a quarter of second (example : Skeletons' room (Archive ?) with Kayako (chapter 1))
• The game often make me go slower and laggy, it may be due to my windows.
• Stamina meter : Appear (when you paused the game and return to the game) after taking the kitchen knife from the skeletal remain in the bedroom (Chapter 1, kayako)

• Glitch when you entered the building in the Ishikawa Gakuen.
• Glitch in the nursery : Kayako can step on the food (Chapter 1, Kayako)
• Glitch with an item in the school (Chapter 1, Kayako)

• Glitch in the kitchen (Gakuen's building : Kayako appear through the door (location depicted in the picture)

• Glitch in the basement : Kayako passed right through a pile of something (Chapter 1, Kayako)

• Glitch next to the well (chapter 2, Yuuki) : Yuuki passed through an object

It's a pleasure ! :D I found some others \(^o^)\

Again spoiler ahead, don't click show @ others

• School : I think it's in the principle's room I'm not sure but Kayako can step on the blue couch
• Spelling mistake : After exorcising/killing Dad, when Yuuki talk about losing consciouness, there's a grammar mistake (conciouness (a "s" is missing)
• Grammar mistake : When Shirokage speak to Yuuki after Dad's scene, the word "folklorist" is written "foklorist".
• Throughout the game, there's several capital letter that shouldn't be there such as "A While", "A Girl" to name some. The "A" is correct. (I know that you mentionned that there was already someone who scan through the text but I'm pointing the mistake that appear often (except for consciousness)
• Bloody mouth : Yuuki has a bloody mouth when she pick up the rusty katana (she's supposed to be heal).

• Small village (Chapter 2) : There's a mistake when you want to climb up the ladder. Instead of the option "climb up", it's written "descend"

• Glitch in Saeko's room (Chapter 2) : When walking toward the bed, Kayako can passed through the folding screen. Same thing happen next to the third door (up-right one)


• Glitch in Taiga's house (Bathroom) : Taiga can only walk toward the candles. He can't explore the plants, toilets and the cabinet.

• Possible glitch in Taiga's house : Is it normal that Taiga can walk on water outside ?

• Possible problem with the light in the servant's room and the corridor leading to it in Taiga's house
• Warring yard (Chapter 3) : You can "click" on the door without facing them (Picture for locating the issue. It happens to all the doors on the side)

• Text overboarding : Located in the warrior den (This issue happens several times in the game)

• Cave at the bottom of the waterfall : Kayako can passed through the pile of rock (same thing with the other pile at the bottom)

• After Taiga joined Kayako, he can be seen during a quarter of second before continuing with Kayako in the dragon path's room
• Text problem ? : Kayako talks on one line but it seems to have a problem with the text.

• Yuuki's house in the lost dimension : There's a glitch where Yuuki can open the by passing through the wall

• In the inn with Yukiko : When she talks about Haruto, Taiga appears instead of him (I must admit that I had a good laugh when I saw that XD)

• Abandoned farm : When Yukiko walk slowly, there's an issue with the doors who are moving on their own.
i got the true ending i like it do you plan for a sequel?
I finish the game and got the good ending at the second time ! (the first one was the bad ending :(). This was a good game. I really enjoy the ending :D (and laugh)

I just have an issue with the password thingy. I have read (and screened) every line of what the guy after the credits says but I think it's saying that I might have forgotten to do/to search something. I'll send you what I got from the guy who talk to me after the credit in PM. Maybe it's an hidden password who knows.... :D

Spoiler alert ahead
Edit : Oh and one last thing. This is the last bug I have encountered : During the clash between "corrupted Yukiko" and the trio YuKaTa, the bugs make the fight hard to deal with because it bugs at every 2-3 seconds.

i got the true ending i like it do you plan for a sequel?
Yes, I do plan for a sequel :D
But it has little to do with Nightmare of The Snow, though. (Despite being set in the same world)
Check out my fan art of Kayako:

I catch some bugs and a problem with Kayako and Rei's notes

Spoiler ahead
Chapter 0 : Yuuki can walk through a walk next to a door.

Chapter 0 : The name "Yuuki" disappear when the mirror's scene happen

Chapter 1 : Yuuki can walk over the lamp and on it.

Chapter 1 Asphyxia room : the time has disappeared
Chapter 1 : At school, in the teacher's room, there's a glitch with Kayako passing through the blue couch


Story's issue : After reading part 1 of Rei's investigation, Kayako said that the mansion is located inside a lost dimension. The problem is that the hint about it is no where to be found in the text. The information only appear when reading part 2.

Edit : typo
Here's two others bugs I found

• The scratch screen effect disappeared in chapter 1 to 5. (Maybe it's an effect from the title screen (the one where you see "new game" "continue")
• When Taiga enters the elevator to escape from the spirits, the door suddenly appear instead of closing.


And... is there a "Shirokage paranormal investigation part 7" or it doesn't exist ? Because I've found the part 6 and 8 but not the seventh... If it exists, where can I find it ?
I found the seventh part... It was in the warrior den.

The review has been made ! (pending atm)

How many references are in the game ? I'm not a good reference seeker, I only found a reference to the ring and maybe a reference to Naruto (and maybe Bleach)

I had an idea for horror games. I have never seen in a rpg horror game a figure (could be a form like an eye, a hand, etc.) stick in the doorframe when you opened the door (or the door is already open). That idea came when I pass in front of a black rectangle and was expecting a jumpscare.

Oh hey, thanks for the review! :D

The scratched screen effect is not a bug. It's just there to add a little bit of atmosphere.

Naruto or Bleach references? No, I only put horror references in the game...
But this makes me want to list the references in the future! :D
Oh :P

I said that because I saw shinobi, ninjutsu and shinigami and I thought about those two animes. Silly me :D.

For the review, I posted it in another place (RPGMT).
When you'll fix the bug/glitch, will the name of the game's file change for v.1.01 ?

Also, when do you plan on releasing a new version without glitch/bug ? Is there a lot to correct (glitch/bug/grammar error) ? (I know I give some but they're other that could have find some)

I'm currently waiting for the proofreader to finish the grammar checking. Bugs and glitches has been fixed, mostly.

I plan to release v1.10 next month. Gotta put more stuffs into the game so it won't be just a mere bug/glitch-fix update :D
