The one thing that paralyzes all parents with fear is failing to protect their children. I regret taking that "game" from work. It took from me what was most important in my life. That is why soon I will be swallowing a bullet from my police issued revolver.

We had been called to check on a resident at an apartment complex. Neighbors were complaining about the smell and the landlord called the police. We first knocked on the door and tried to call him out, but no one answered. When we forced open the door, we found his limp dead body sitting in front of a PC. His face was partially torn away, part of the flesh dangling like cobwebs from the skull. We secured the body and any clues for what looked like a possible homicide. The coroner, though, determined from the guy’s fingernails that the wounds were self-inflicted. “Hell of a way to kill yourself,” I said. Now I know that the poor guy probably just lost it.

We didn't make any progress finding any reason for the suicide. The PC didn’t help much either, nowadays you expect to find a suicide note on facebook or twitter. There wasn’t even a word document that began with dear mom and dad. We did find a single folder titled "Townlore.” It was some kind of computer game, pretty boring too.

After the case closed, I made a copy of the game to give it to my son. It is common to take items from people that don’t use it anymore from the evidence locker. If you go to a police auction, you know exactly what I mean. I thought that the game was simple enough to entertain a young child. Being a single father is tough and sometimes I just needed him out of my hair.

Although, gameplay wasn't anything fancy, he did enjoy it. One night I even caught him playing past his bedtime. I grounded him from the game, but like most kids he didn’t listen.

Someday after that he ran to me pale as a sheet. I asked him what was wrong. He answered, "Pandora is resting.” I asked him who Pandora was and he responded, “The girl locked inside the game.” I just laughed it off as one big joke. Deep down, I started to get suspicious of this game so I started playing. If there was something on it that my little boy shouldn’t see, I’d simply delete it.

However when I tried to continue the game from my son’s save, it crashed. I decided to try playing a new game, but there was no gameplay. I reinstalled the game and realized that there was a save state. If I couldn't play the game from the beginning, I could continue from when it was playable.

I didn't know how to progress in the game. So I made the mistake of posting it online and tried to get help from other gamers. After that, my son started acting strange. I woke up with a start one night because he was standing beside my bedside just watching me. I asked him what was wrong; he responded by saying, “I can hear her crying.”

Then it happened, I heard a crash in the bathroom. I found my son lying face down on the ground. Somehow he had gotten into the medicine cabinet. There was a bottle of pills still being clutched in his tiny hand. He had taken so many pills that there were empty bottles and pills scattered everywhere. He choked and died in my arms that night. It was all because of that game. The last guy that played it killed himself. Now my son was on its victims list. By time I tried to pull the game off the internet, it had spread like a virus. Now all I can do is give you this warning:

DON’T PLAY THIS GAME LATE AT NIGHT.
DON’T GO INTO THE FOREST.
FOLLOW THE RULES.

This has hit (and hip) potential all over it.
I created a creepypasta of this, if you want, I can submit media for it :D
I have a problem with the creepypasta you wrote for this game. If someone just up and dies in their apartment, the police don't care about their computer. The only way they would have taken it for evidence is if it was a) a suicide or b) a homicide. Since creepypastas tend to throw around the suicide trope a lot, you might want to switch to saying he committed suicide. This means the son of the cop also killed himself. This is only a suggestion, but I think it might help.
This looks awesome! Well done! ^^
Exactly when does Goatson sleep so that I can get into the forest? I switched the time settings on my computer, but I have no idea what time they need set for. I'm going to leave a review after I'm done with this game. First things first, though, I need to finish it.
If you wish, I can write you down exactly what happens when. Behold the spoilers:

-Goatson goes to sleep at 2AM, until 3AM
-After event in the forest Pandora will be sleeping till 8AM
-After that, it is advised to check the town out every hour to see how things are progressing
-Have in mind that Game Over in this game is somewhat unconventional - instead of normal Game Over screen, you'll see something a bit different, which may appear as some kind of bug, or something. Just sayin, as there were already people who did not realised that it was end of the game.
The polished version of the pasta is setting inside your email account. Somehow I made the pasta 666 words, this was not intentional. I also added some extra creepiness.
Wow, I just read your version. I like how detailed and realistic it seems. If you don't mind, I'll add it into the game file and as game description.

Thank you, now its time to spread this game like a virus. I suggest posting it on the creepypasta wiki for starters. They would eat this stuff up. They're always looking for original material. I think getting someone to read this out loud on youtube would be awesome too, they can link the game in their video.
Yeah, I've been thinking about posting it on creepypasta wiki. I also found out that Townlore was mentioned on reddit as well. Game being posted here may be an issue, though, as it won't be some creepypasta game with unknown orgin, but a game made by someone certain (which can be found out by simply searching game's title via google for example).

On the other hand, game was published on the internet. Nobody really knows who actually made it - even if I posted it here, right? ;)
Shouldn't matter that much, every story starts out from some origin. Slenderman is from something awful and most of creepypastas appear on either reddit or 4chan. My point is who cares if it started on this site. It is a good game, a good story and spreading it around aligns with the lore.

I’m not sure if it’s just me or not, but it appears that the downloaded version of the game that I got from here starts me off after the events of Pandora going into the forest and everything starting to go to shit. I’m not supposed to start there, am I…?

Anyways, I did manage to find a copy that doesn’t start me off there and have completed and have submitted a review for it. :)

It…was interesting, that’s all I can say.
Thanks for info about save file. I already took care of it (i hope)
How’d this thing get back on the front page? Shoo! Shoo! Get back in your tomb.
Haha. So I started playing this and noticed the music is like a remix of the theme from Hausu and it sounds amazing. XD
