Matt is a truck driver and he must transport heavy materials to distant zones in the middle of snow. One night, he decides to take Lily with him so she can see how his job is. After 3 hours they find themselves in a dangerous place and unfortunately the truck runs out of fuel. Lost and disoriented, they seek shelter in a nearby mine.

After a short time, both find a person who offers them shelter and fuel in their castle. What they don’t know is that the place is cursed and they’ll have to face a horrible creatures to keep themselves alive.



- Original Soundtrack.
- Original Character Design.
- Multiple Endings.
- Two playable characters: Each with their pros and cons.
- Puzzles, traps and horrible creatures with different behaviors.



Two characters, two points of view: Players will be able to choose their favorite character and will see their own dialogues in certain situations. Some of the players may want to run and hide from the enemies, others may want to face them with weapons.



Be cautious: Every monster and boss will have their own behavior. Some of them will be more aggressive if you turn on a lamp or walk near them. Be careful, killing them won’t always be a good idea.

Save ammo and food: Resources will be scarce, meaning that ammo and food won’t be found everywhere. Search every corner and your effort shall be paid. Kill a monster only when it is imperative or if you need to check the same place often.

Saw this on greenlight quite a while ago. Good to see it's still being made! Looks pretty good! Best of luck to you!
The environment brings me an idea of old school survival horror games, which is really nice. I bet that the gameplay might be also quite dynamic, considering that you can choose between two characters.

Keep up the good work! :D
It looks great, a story with many features and the special emphasis on the music, makes it an interesting game.
Looking forward to the release of Black Winter, hope you don't mind me performing a Let's Play of it like I did with Goodbye Rebeca? ^_^

Random thoughts
Those warnings that say don't play the game if you are (what people should be)
make no sense. should just say what kind of potential offensive content is in the experience.

That cardboard truck!

Why would you do something for gods sake? it doesn't need help.
well he doesnt exist to begin with but if it did it woudn't.

the intro is way too long and tedious...because they keep repeating the same dam things...
and the grammar needs work which includes making it less awkward.
i mean its so bad that lily (the female in your group) says "lets find the mine" that you're standing directly in front of...

the lighting for the campfire looks bad.its blue

i didn't expect to get a vegan lesson here. tho it should be obvious that meat comes from dead animals.
and for them to be dead they have to be killed and chopped into pieces. i pity the idea of a person not understanding that.

tho this guy isn't that smart...they are in the middle of nowhere,during snowstorm...in a dam cave and the thinks his phone is going to work!?
and then there is the fire...the list of problems there are with the fire they made!
not sure if they are ignorant or suicidal.

how do you save!? this is getting ridiculous!

what does morgan mean? "it is freezing out here." (the insides of caves are not effected by surface temperature...so it would not be cold inside...)


Thoughts Dropped
I could go on a rant about why this is terrible and that's not even finishing it.
so generally speaking the badly written dialog aside.
Are the characters suppose to lack all forms of common sense?

they keep repeating themselves thus conversations go no where.
they keep doing illogical things to the point where i wonder if the developer them self lacks knowledge and understanding of things.

and then there is saving. which i never found out how to despite playing for long enough to see at least 1.
As for good points. the character art,mapping and visual atmosphere (excluding the card board truck) is great

Overall
This was a bad experience i don't recommend.

Hey, you can save the game in specific places. If you find a red symbol on the wall, you can save.

At the beginning of the game (in the introduction, there will be some autosave points). The first one is in the entrance of the castle.

I know that the introduction of the game is to long, but it is necessary to know all the characters, the castle, the gameplay mechanics and story.

Give it a chance to play, don't judge the game if you've only played 30 minutes, the game lasts more. thanks for your opinion

Beta testers!? No, this game needs a goddamn exorcist!

While I disagree with some of Shayoko's points I do share their overall rating.

Something that will really help you on future projects is to step back from your story after all the writing is done and think "does anything here contradict anything else?" and "is anything here that doesn't contribute beneficially" It's a common writing exercise that I've always done and now I see that I've been taking it's usefulness completely for granted. When it's not used the problems are so obvious that they suck the life out of the entire game.

I'm writing a proper review right now but in summary the game's biggest flaw is player engagement. Lengthy cutscenes only work when they're emotionally or intellectually engaging. While player engagement doesn't require player interaction (visual novels being great proof of this) without engaging the player physically, emotionally or intellectually the overall experience suffers to the point of being insufferable.

45 mins in, got into the main game proper, dropped.

long introductions are sometimes necessary. Better a game that explain you in detail the story and characters than a game that know nothing about the story.

Example: Mad Father is a great game and has an introduction about 40 minutes (you can't play, just watch some scenes and flashbacks).

Yes, but Mad Father's intro is engaging. Mad Father as a whole is expertly well told. The amount said is irrelevant. It's the quality of what's said. That's why people like me can enjoy a good visual novel, jRPG or a Metal Gear Solid game. There's lots there but it's juicy and inviting.
IDK IF THIS IS A SPOILER BUT FIRST PART CAN BE soooo...
*Spoiler alert*
I stucked in the room with two buttons on the ground. They are activating spikes when u go on. Tried almost everything, but cant figure it out. I unlocked a rock with 4 statues, but cant push it to any room, dunno what to do about this.
It should be helpful to put the walkthrough in game folder just in case like this, for example. It isnt bad idea, cause people who dont want to check it, won't do it, and people who stuck, can pass through the moment they stuck, like me.


And a few of my thoughts about the game.
Light is too dark, barely can see things. Probably it was done specially but in my opinion it is too hardcore.
Doors are invisible, u need to check literally everything to find a door in a wall. Nothing to guide to the door. Sometimes u are just surprised to find it.
For this moment game doesnt look like something special, but isnt very bad. I have kind of a enjoyment when playing it.
(Sorry for my bad english too)
You can push the rock to the room with the two buttons, and move the rock to keep the top button pushed down... It glitched out on me first (i couldnt push the rock to the button) I had to restart the game and reload from the last save point... Then it worked. Hope this helps:)
