I downloaded it. I extracted. I start the game and *poof*

it said unable to find graphics/charcter/vehicle

please help.
You need to install the RPG Maker VXAce RTP. You can find a link to it on the Engine page for Ace (just click on the link next to Engine on this page and it'll take you there.)
Okay, I just played the demo and read "The Diary of Hisakawa Mai" and I thought I
might give some feedback.

First off the demo:
The moment I read the warning I knew that this is gonna be really interesting. Only reading this part already sent some shivers down my spine and built the right atmosphere. It's currently midnight here in Germany so that definitely helped. What I loved most is the monster design and the scares. Especially the one where a shadowy person can be seen standing behind the door and after you enter and leave there are suddenly multiple shadows. The jumpscare in the bath really got me as well. The atmosphere was amazing too.

There are some things which bothered me though. I actually expected more puzzles in the demo but there weren't that many actually ;_;. Some things about the audio were weird as well. You chose quite fitting music but the causal exploration piece ("horrorair") didn't loop that great. I know that you got it from a website where those pieces can be downloaded for free but the problem could have been easily solved by cutting away the first few milliseconds of free space at the beginning of the piece. Then no one could tell when the loop would actually start again. Another thing which bothered me is how the sound effect which is played when you find stuff gets cut off as soon as you click away the message. It would be a lot better if it would continue playing even if you dismiss the message. Maybe it's the fault of the Engine though and I'm blaming you although you aren't at fault. ^^


And now "The Diary of Hisakawa Mai":
The story was amazing! It really gave me the creeps. Especially the usage of the sound effects was great. And the ending... just wow. I actually enjoyed it even more than the demo. Don't get me wrong though. The demo was still great ^^

But like in the demo there were still things that bothered me concerning the music. The piece that is played at the 24th ("majo") is kind of unfitting in my opinion. I don't think the music should get more lighthearted because the monster still appears in this part. On the 26th on the other hand is a more relaxed atmosphere because the woman isn't at her home where she had those nightmares and she seems to be out of the grasp of the monster. That's why the piece "majo" would fit a lot better to this scene and the more creepy piece should be used at the 24th day. But that's just my opinion. ^^

In the end it's still up to you to decide whether the things I pointed out which attracted my attention in a negative way are really bad or if my taste in horror games is just off. Most of the things I pointed out are about music because I'm a musician and composer myself so I guess music is the thing which I feel most confident criticizing in this case because I know my way around this topic ^^


I hope I am able to help somehow by telling you guys my opinion. I'm looking forward to the future updates already (especially the ghost diaries)!

Thank you so much for the feedback!
You are right, the music is not looped as it was a frees stock ambience sound! Thank you for explaining how to loop, I'll be sure to correct it!
As for the Item get melody getting cut off, it is indeed possible for it to continue playing, but as it's such a long melody, we found it a bit strange for it to continue playing while the player was moving about after getting the item (most players tend to rush the item get sequences). It's not perfect either way, so we had to choose an option! 'A'
Again, thank you so much for your critique, it was truly helpful!

There's one thing I forgot to mention. After removing the silence at the beginning and exporting it as an MP3 file there will probably still be silence at the beginning. That's just how MP3s are and I'd recommend exporting the piece as either a WAV or OGG file. OGG is actually one of the better formats for the RPG Maker. MP3 files aren't suitable for this kind of looping at all actually.

Does it have any screamers?


If by screamers you mean a scary image that fills up your screen and makes a loud noise, then no, no screamers!
