A mixture of:
- Survival Horror
- Ghost Story
- Non-fiction Horror

This is the story of Elise, a young girl whose situation goes from jumpy to flat out terrifying. Help her find a way to survive the night, with quick thinking, problem solving, and good judgement. Enjoy playing, 'The Victim'.

This game is my entry for the Halloween contest event; I aimed to make it scary and dark. The plot circles around a typical young female fear, and escalates it through a terrifying but realistic set of events with some supernatural twists to make the story a bit easier to swallow.

I hope the game properly gives you jumps and a few stomach churns.

Alter Elise via different stats to make her react differently. All choices you make can help her in later areas of the game.

Future Changes and Design

So there are a handful of things I wanted to add to the game but didn't have the time to, and honestly, some just blatantly slipped my mind. So I figured I'd just list them here, in case anyone wants to play it again once the changes are implemented. Timing wise, it'll probably done a few weeks after my birthday, since I have to get some things sorted out.

+ more Dialogue and choices
+ Good/Evil judgement system
+ Two more additional puzzles
+ Expanding the ending (will add 2 more endings)
+ More Diary pages to explain the stories of the other girls


I feel as though the first half of the game has a very different feeling than the second half. And the ending will feel rushed for some, so I want to fix the pacing, a lot. I'm very new at making games in RPGMaker, and I ran into more problems than anticipated even though I kept the game extremely simple.

There are a lot of... mood issues, I think my inexperience really shows. I battled with myself a lot between being obvious and leaving things to the imagination. Moreover, I struggled with trying to present cliches in new and interesting ways. I know I'm not dealing with a brand spanking new or untouched topic, but it is one that I think is very chilling, and a dark reality for so many. Which is why I didn't want to add any humor whatsoever. I didn't want to draw away from the atmosphere I was struggling to create, as I had very little faith in my ability to recreate the mood after breaking the tension.

Another thing, I really did miss out on explaining Belle and Sarah's personalities. While Mary's is extremely obvious, and Elise's is very low-key as to not distract the player from the choices they are trying to make, this was intended to allow them to play Elise and to experience the story from a non-slanted view. Though, I admit, I slipped in a few areas, but I hope to fix that when I make adjustments.

I think the most important thing will be me getting emotional distance from the project over a week or two, before going back and working hard at fixing and tweaking the plot to make it deeper. Right now it's a serious topic that is dark, but still a bit more shallow than I like, and I'm sure players who enjoy the darker genres would appreciate more back story to learn the good and the bad of each character.

I hope I didn't spoil anything for those of you who haven't gotten to playing it, but I'd love advice and critique. I know the mapping is horrible, but I worked with all the default things in the game, as I wanted to see how much I could do to create the atmosphere without unique things. Much like, how scary can I make this feel with things people are used to seeing all the time. Much like one feels safe in their home until something bad happens.

Anyway, it basically sums up as, 'I wanted to create something deeper but my inexperience and late start really held me back from being satisfied'.

Thanks for playing, and please let me know what you think or any suggestions you have! I want to improve and develop.

cant believe how few comments there are after this much time!
guess ill check out that letsplay

Edit-well...now it makes sense,in a regular game. and by that i mean non hentai.
you should NEVER have rape in a game.even tho its only suggested.
somehow people are ok with any other thing thats much worse
but the majority of people seem to find it more offensive
then murder,torture,slavery,mutilation,ect
maybe because they are ignorant and believe such things don't happen when they do.

in anycase,if you make another game if you want feedback dont put controversial things like this.
people would be fine with character deaths tho,or injuries to men
noone likes when girls suffer
the world is terribly sexist

that said the H community are so disturbed they praise disgusting and terrible things.
maybe you should try that

Don't ever tell anyone they shouldn't have anything in their game. You are not the developer.

Lato is right, just because you can't stand it, it doesn't mean it can't be put. Nobody likes rape, but fiction has to be believable, and if it reflects reality, then it has to reflect reality.
And rape doesn't belong to hentai, rape in hentai is truly offensive for real rape victims. Rape in fiction it's supposed to be HORRIBLE, that's probably why it was in this horror game.
You have no right to tell them this.

PS: SPOILER - In the japanese game 'Misao' there's rape, and look how famous the game is. It shows how horrible rape is (even if it's only implied), and people likes believable stuff.
People have posted videos on youtube about "Misao" and they get tons of views, and I mean tons of views. Even I liked it, I actually want to play the game (even though I know how all of the endings go).
