Game entry for the All Hallows' Event 2013
Theme: survival horror

Synopsis

It all ended in a night of terror for Scarlet. All she could recall was her stepfather, brandishing the hunter's knife that he had tried to kill her with, then the fall that blackened all reality in an instant.

She finds herself waking up in a hospital where all chaos had broken loose, and now must piece together what happened while avoiding the possibility of her stepfather finding her to continue what he had failed the night before -- kill her.


Characters



Scarlet Holder - The protagonist of the game. She wakes up in a recovery room confused and worried. No one seems to be around, and she doesn't know where she is. all she knows is that she has to find help, and fast.



Dr. Basil Frederick - He is a 42 year old doctor who attempts to help the protagonist through her predicament.



Quiet Girl - A young girl who never utters a word throughout the game. She follows the main character around the hospital for unknown reasons.

Features

- Interactive puzzles (clues, combinable items and some quick thinking)
- A simple menu layout in which items and tools are used to trigger events
- A chase system to keep people alert through the course of the game
- A hide system that let's you chose when you would like to stop hiding
- A hint system that help players find items and important objects when stuck
- 1-2 hours of game play (most probable estimation)

Controls

- Use the arrow keys to move your character around
- Use the spacebar to interact with items / objects
- Hold "shift" to run, press "x" to open up your inventory

Version 1 - Plenty of game-breaking problems... still.

So today I had released a version with quite a number of errors in it. I wouldn't recommend it be downloaded for the time being until these problems are resolved.

Sorry again, I'll get em all patched up for v1.1

Issues:

- There are multiple ways to go about playing the game... Because of this, a new bug arose (conditional if you happened to do the main story before sub goals) which prevents the player from going any further.
- The combination lock for the power maintenance can't be discovered because the switches for the boiler room won't turn on... I forgot to change the settings for the event to "same as char".
- The morgue storage has a major problem. a switch won't turn on preventing the player from going any further (It was working before.. but the update to increasing the timer destroyed that).

Again, I am really sorry about all this! I'll get it all patched up ASAP~!!

Our game will be free for anyone to play, we aren't big fans of charging people... we actually enjoy it a lot more making games that anyone can play and have a good time with =]

The only problem we are currently facing is whether or not the game will be finished on time (we overdid all the events and found ourselves struggling to keep consistency and stay on track with the dialogue). The question whether our game will make the deadline or not has been tossed around quite a number of times... but I'll do the best I can to get this game finished and the download link ready for you a couple of days from now

Thanks for the support, I'll do my best to get this project up, running and updated if any bugs should appear after the initial release =D
This is your first game? Wow that's impresive.
Did you do all the graphics yourself including the characters drawing and title?
Besides that the story sounds interesting. Where did you come up with it? :D

Is this supposed to be an entry into All Hallows Event 2012? The comment about not being able to finish on time (not to mention the target completion date that is posted) makes me largely suspect this.

I wish I could draw like that! My sister is the person to thank for this.. she's our team artist and I'm really thankful that she was able to help out on this project with the hours off she had.

As for the story.. I'd also have to thank my other sister for that! This game is just combining most of the things we like doing for our free time (programming, drawing and story-writing). I really don't know how the game will turn out, let's hope it comes out a game worth playing =]

It's supposed to be... hopefully I didn't mess up with anything like posting with wrong tags or maybe forgetting to label it as an entry. I read the site and all they said was that it should have a gamepage and a full game download ready before the 31st..

But even if we don't make it, I'm sure we will still continue to work on the project to make it even better because one month surely isn't enough time to make a full interactive horror game (It took 1 week for story and resource gathering, 2 weeks of mapping and planning the puzzles and this last week of trying to develop everything with interactive objects)! There more than likely will be "rushed in" feelings as you progress through the game due to the fact that we had to "drop" extra puzzles =Z Of course, that will all change once the game is updated to version 2 later on.

Thanks for the comments and questions!
It's always good to take a little break on this project to answer a couple of questions and comments =]
When the game is finished... I'd say it would be more of the "alpha" stage... all the main features and story are implemented, but it could still use a lot more furnishing before it can be considered a "real" game. It all depends whether you would like to see an empty house before before the furniture (not really an example of the situation... but it should describe what I mean), lol =]
Nice looking game. Am going to play as soon as it's released. Makes me jealous, which is a good thing.

Yeah, I agree with you, Watanuki-kun! as I'd said, the character and, moreover, the story really make me curious > <

eh, so you with your sisters make this for a competition?! cool! good luck, by the way ^ ^ it seems like fun to have some project with siblings, huh? :D
@Mizumori - We finally made the game... although it's still in need of a juicier plot! Hopefully you don't get too stressed out with searching for clues and solving small riddles / puzzles =P

Thanks for supporting the project, Mizumori! Oh, and yeah... working with siblings is fun. That is, until the final hours of production xD we were all so stressed lol

@TheQueenOfGods - Sorry for the REALLY late response... I've been working on the game every minute possible and couldn't get a break to respond, but the download is finally ready xD hope you enjoy the

@ThatBennyGuy - Thank you for the support!! All I hope is that you find the game enjoyable and thrilling at some points =]

EDIT: The game page is up now and no longer a fail spoiler ;]
I'm stuck at the security door part, even though I have the correct code the door won't open pls help, and there's also a bug on the first chasescene where the bad guy leaves the map :O
So just out of curiosity, what is the difference between the Raw version and the Normal Version of the game?
@MisterMolby - Oh lol, sorry if I made that part a bit tricky! and thanks for the bug report! I'll fix that up in the next update! Oh, and here's the solution to the security lock =D

The "??? Poster" is a passcode puzzle. The first number is represented by the stages of life and how many of each type there are. On the last stage... you may notice that the background, also, includes a butterfly (That explains why the robber couldn't get the passcode to work also) =]


@Delayed_Chimera - The normal version is an encrypted game (certain files will be hidden from the users) but I can't get it to work because of the parallax backgrounds I'm using for the game. So I guess you could say that the normal one is broken and the raw version works (but the files are not protected properly)

You won't be able to notice any difference with the actual gameplay however... they are both identical =D
@Aeri_Sicher hahaha ok that actually makes a lot of sense thanks :) btw there is nothing in that security room and when I check up on a chair in that room that blonde chick suddenly appears behind me, can you tell me what I need to prior to entering that room?
btw there is a bug in the second chase scene, he is simply too fast
@MisterMolby - The girl isn't supposed to join your party after investigating the chair... I'll need to fix that. thank you for telling me that..!

EDIT: Removed the second solution as the problem will only serve as a spoiler

you will need the cat to distract him (just walk up to him with the cat in your inventory, it's automatic)... getting the cat out of the crack is a different problem
I was talking about the 1st problem Thanks for letting me know, if you could be so kind to tell me how to get
the cat out of the crack
I would much appreciate it, thanks for helping me around and sorry for taking your time It's a really great game!

No problem! Here you are:

The cat will only come out when you give it some bread (You get bread from the vending machines {dorm 1} and money from the ??? room's vault). when you get the bread, you have to use the item in front of the cat... then interact with it. the cat will now come out of the hole


Also, I'm also about to release version 1 (fixed bugs, encrypted data and a new game icon) real soon! Thanks Mister for all the bug reports! =]
why cant I see the items, the beds etc? its confusing me seriously since it looks like its mostly empty and suddenly I bump into somethign and oh its a bookshelf...I quess :D otherwise this is a really really intersting game :)

Hello! Sorry for that problem Kanonshiki... The download link you happened to choose is currently broken. There is another link "Grounded - Raw version" which should work out just fine, although it's a bit outdated.

In a couple more minutes I'll fix the broken link so you can download that and have the most recent version with minimal (if not any) game bugs =]

Sorry for the troubles!
