"My name is Felix Omin.
Ever since I was born, I've been afraid.
Afraid of what?
What is there not to be afraid of...
"

Story:
Cardiophobia follows Felix, a teenager with a unique heart condition.
Whenever his heartbeat raises, he cannot get it back to normal without taking medicin.
Living with such a condition makes it hard to have a normal life, but he manages at his new home.
One night, there is a blackout in the house and weird things start to happen.
Felix finds himself trying to survive the rest of the night, while saving his friends.

Premise:
In this game there are Scares and Spooks.
Scares are things that make Felix's Heartbeat rise. If it gets too high, he dies. The scares don't always happened either, most of them have conditions.
Spooks, on the other hand, are harmless. However, these things only appear depending on how scared Felix is, stuff like blood, messages, noises.

You will be faced with puzzles that range from very easy to thinking outside the box, and most of them are optional. However, puzzles isn't the only things you will have to face before you can escape...

The game is meant to be played multiple times, because I doubt it's possible to get the best ending on your first playthrough.

It's important to note, that even though it has horror elements, I would rather say this is a puzzle-survivor game. The scares are more for Felix the character, but if I manage to scare someone else, then I do see that as a plus. The scares also varies from small things to more elaborate.

This game contains:
  • Ending that recaps what you did or did not do in your playthrough, with 8 different endings.

  • Multiple puzzles that range in difficulty.

  • Multiple playthroughs.

  • With over 50 Scares.

  • New Game+ saving to keep track of your unlock progress.


Authors notes (Might be important to read through):
This project started years ago, and over those years, I've been working on this game from time to time. Some weeks more than others. Lately, I haven't felt like wanting to go back to this game. Don't get me wrong, the game is complete, but it has been complete for a long while, I've just been adding more to the game. I feel like if I don't release this game now, it will never be released.

With that being said, I just wanna say that I am not an artist or anything, this game has problems. Spelling error, dialogs being just plain bad etc. You kinda have to take this game with a grain of salt.

Just like any game, it is not 100% bug free, but I'm pretty sure all the game breaking bugs are gone (The ones that crash the game).

Thanks

I'm really stoked about Cardiophobia getting over 50k views, so I just really wanted to say thanks for that.

I also wanted to say thanks for the spotlight, I couldn't believe it at first when I saw it.

While the making and first couple of weeks after completion had some rough patches, I've had a lot of fun watching people play the game and hear all of the feedback in the comments.

I don't know what else to say, thanks for everything.

Apparently I suck at this. I'm stuck with 1 red eye, know for the dragon statue, golden key, and no medicine. I've got one medkit key too. Can not for the life of me figure out where to go. This is right after the bear puzzle too. I want to say the "mothers note" leads to the garden assuming it's for her locked closet, still haven't figured that out. Used all obvious clues.


Well, most people try to do it like this, trying to do everything on one playthrough. You basically can't. Now you know where some of the stuff is, and maybe even how to evade some scares, so you can make a better run. I know this might not be so fun for most people, so I guess trying to head for the exit and get an ending is something you should focus on.

If you need help with that, message me.

If I can figure out the locked closet in mothers room and a way to get into marcus's room. I should be set. I can go ALL the way around the mansion avoiding most "scares". Oh yeah, and the lever thing by the 2nd save point.

It's related to the story right next to the closet,
How many people are in the story? how many pebbles are there?
How are they divided?

I was thinking of that but I wasn't sure how to come up with an answer. Literally, some puzzles I can figure out. Others make me feel dumb. D=
Need help with the teddy bear puzzle. I need a hint to get me started. Had a couple of ideas but none of them worked.

Sent you a PM.
I'm not gonna lie, I saw the answer to the mother closet with the "pebble" riddle.
Just curious, how do you come across that answer because I can't figure it out? Legitimately I'd like the know the process to that. Seriously, you have good puzzles, just probably something I'm missing or skipping over.

I feel like a wimp...I need the code for 'Mother''s room, I need help with the teddy bear room and the door across from said teddy bear room. Last I checked, the guy in the mask was bashing his head against the bookshelf.

The number of times you've had to send people the answers to certain puzzles, the teddy bear appearing to the worst offender. It makes sense for you to create a page here and put all the puzzle answers on it in separate hide tags, that way if someone is stuck they can access that particular puzzle answer without seeing the rest and without having to wait for a PM from you.

You are right. It's been out for a while now, so I guess I should do that.
I just wanted to say that I'm really liking the game so far. It's scary, oppressive and unbelievably atmospheric, and I'll be sure to write a review as soon as I manage to beat it!
