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~!!

Hi! The game is nice, but i found a bug. the room where he is the blonde girl, there is some towels in the wall and if you run into them you just get out of the map.

I still dindt finish but nice game so far. =)

Thanks for the bug report! I think I might have patched it already with the last update, but I'll check again just to be sure =]

Hello Cleric!

I'm sorry that you had to encounter this bug (in fact.. you've helped me find an optional game-breaking bug!). The problem is that leaving the area after pushing the statue causes the event to reset and makes the "second clue" disappear permanently. This will be patched up next version so that you may leave and return to finish the quest!

In order to avoid this conditional bug, you have to retrieve the second clue immediately after pushing the statue from underneath (currently the only possible way to avoid this conditional game-breaking bug. You may also chose to cheat and skip all the clue quests by referring to the "spoiler" below).

Or you could just enter the vault solution from the walkthrough and bypass all the hidden clue quests (1-4) and continue the game. If you've done far too much and would like to keep your progress, I'd recommend this temporary solution.


Thank you for helping me find both of these bugs!

Hello Luchia!

Just wondering what kind of computer are you using? It appears that your computer is lacking the appropriate font (which normally comes with all the computers). Have you tried installing Microsoft Word? By doing so, it should download all the necessary fonts on your computer required for this game to run =]

Hope that helps! =]
OK,hope you can solve these bugs in the next version.:)

i have a whindows 8, toshiba laptop. i downloaded VL gothic font. it worked jut until i clicked new and it said Unable to find file audio/SE/decision1. and yes i have Microsoft word.
@luchia - That's pretty strange... whatever happened, it's because the launcher cannot find the required files to run the game.

This link will take you to the RTP-Material required for the game to launch.

Scroll down and select "RPGMaker VX Ace" as the program and download that.. this will give you all the required files in order to run my game (including all other games that lack basic material).

Sorry for the trouble!
Ok, I GIVE UP >< I can't seem to be able to enter the code to the security room... And yes, I did count the extra butterfly at the back and put the code in the order of the butterfly's life cycle (PRETTY SURE)...
Soo.... is it a bug? Am I doing something wrong :<?

Hey Shira! (LOUD! xD)

I'm sorry that you got stuck at that part, I've been watching the let's plays and felt pretty bad about all the bugs and stuff lol

Here's what happened,
You definitely had the right Idea on how to solve the puzzle, but your combination entry starts off from the butterfly (which is completely okay). Due to developer assumptions, all players were expected to begin counting from the "egg" to the "butterfly". In fact, I've changed that for version 2 (as well as making it easier to understand the solution) so that the players will know which cycle to start from =]

Other things I just wanted to say: I lol'd when I saw your reaction to trapping the kitty! Well, I feel bad. So I've changed that to making the cat follow the player around instead of catching it (still not released for download though. I've found myself kinda busy working with a project worth playing and grounded is now kind of left just as a competition entry). Thanks for the youtube uploads!! It was a great pleasure watching them while you played! esp the ending! =P

I really really want to play this game but whenever I try to download the game and open it says "can"t find file" >.< do you happen to know why?? I really want to play this it seems so interesting and awesome! :D

When I got her to join my party after showing the picture, I noticed that you could walk through the wall. I've marked the part in red.

Also during the first chase with the Stepfather, that the Stepfather could walk through or rather pass through walls. But anyway thought I'd also mention that.
Hi I was wondering if you would not mind me doing a lets play on this game?
Hey! I'm a player from China =w=
Really had a hard time searching & reading the descriptions......
TWT
I just wander that where did you put that East wing key....
Plenty of time spent on that QWQ
P.S.: A great game! Thank ya~
P.S. Again : Would you mind me making a let's play in China?
Thank again =]
Sooo huh... it has been a while now and... well... I'm stuck. I really am... I don't know what I'm doing wrong XD!
So this part in the generator room... yea, it's not working, and I kind of gave up ><

Every time I download this game it has a HUGE glitch that when im running from the man with the knife when the game begins (after finding bandages and water for the man) it glitches so when i try to hide he is outside the walls of the room in the blackness and when i get near the wall he kills me. this makes it impossible to hide as he is in every wall of every room i go to hide in

let me try to help :)

well, did you try to hide in the operations room? That always happens in those places(about the man in the outside of the map/outside the room and when you near from it you'll die). It's a bug that maybe haven't been fixed, but you could continue by hiding in your room/the first room when you start the game, specifically under the bed. Hope it can solve your problem~!! :)
Hello!
I really love your game. So I want to ask. Can I translate it to Russian?

Watched stars play of the game,shame theres many glitches that were never fixed.
in terms of horror if i was in her situation it would be laughable
he is just 1 normal adult human
if you really wanted to you could take care of them
so its no a big deal

The ending...wont spoil anything but that was pretty good
certainly wasnt expecting it.
hopefully you can still and will fix the game
