From Next Door is a short mystery-horror game developed for the 2016 Pixel Horror Jam, featuring 100% original graphics, story-driven gameplay, exploration and decision making. It draws inspiration from the works of Junji Ito and games like Silent Hill, with the story focused on the eerie and the bizarre.

Story

Namie has just moved into a new house, one that was rented for a too-good-to-be-true price. It seemed like a good idea at first - nice house, low price, fully furnished, quiet neighborhood… but when she comes across a locked room on the second floor, she starts to realize there’s more to the house than what she was told. Why is that room locked? Why did the previous tenant leave the house so suddenly, leaving his things behind? And what’s the deal with the windowless house next door?

Gameplay

The game is largely centered around the story itself, with the player exploring the environment to discover clues and to progress forward. Exploration is the key to uncovering the game’s mysteries - and although the game follows a linear story line, the choices you make will affect how you discover information and, perhaps, even affect the outcome of things.

Length: ~50 min

From Next Door in the spotlight?!

Apparently From Next Door has been spotlighted! I'm not sure who to thank, but I'm so honored, thank you so much!

Also, the game has reached over 1k from the page alone (and 4k all around - holy crap!), so I'd like to thank everyone who played it, who Let's Play'd it, who watched someone play it, who left nice comments, who gave feedback, and who just supported the game in general. I hope I can make future games even better!

To celebrate, here's a sketch of Namie (thanks to my new drawing tablet, haha)



Thank you so much, everyone!

IT WAS SOOOO GREAT AND FUN! GREAT JOB
I love this game so far! However, I'm confused as to how to save in-game.
Sorry if this is a stupid question, but I just can't seem to figure out how.
