hi, big thx for the creepy game. greetings from rosti πŸ™πŸ˜˜

Full Gameplay + Ending 

Interesting game...had some issue but made it through to the end..was quite unhappy with a certain part but I won't spoil anything.

Was pretty well done! They spooks started pretty soon with the Watchers walking and driving by and then the very next day, they could be seen from different windows. Love the contrast between the spookiness of that and the normality of doing regular cleaning up. 

Only wish that there was more backstory as to why they were watching and why the main character turned into a Skinwalker/ Monster; but that's just me because the whole untold story part of the game seems so interesting. 

Also I found a 'bug' where you can clip through walls if you walked up to it and moved the camera at an acute angle, just thought you might want to know!

Fun game either way and good luck for future projects!

This game is creepy. Unfortunately I did not get to finish it cause of some sort of bug, but the aspect of this game was great. The graphics were good and there is just something scary to people stalking you. Cool game! 

Just Terrifying. I enjoyed the suspense, 

Ziet er echt wel gelikt uit, ik was er nogal gerust op tot ineens de aliens voor mijn neus stonden... Heb er van genoten! Groetjes uit BelgiΓ«

Great Game!

Thank you!


What an amazing game! That atmosphere was beautifully crafted! The banging sounds got me a couple of times, and the design for the creatures or whatever they are are so simple but so creepy! Really enjoyed this game! 

Thank you very much!

You're welcome!


I played prior to the key visibility fix, so most of my issues have been fixed. The watchers are really creepy, loved when they invaded, but I have to admit that I am completely lost at the ending.



( No Commentary )

Amazing concept greatly well done & the creator is amazing at responding to issues and concerns!

Thank you for your kind words and for the video!

I really enjoyed this game. there were a few minor bugs but nothing that ruined the game for me. I had a hard time finding one of the keys but managed to locate it. 

Great job and very creepy! Can't wait to see what else you create! Keep it Up!


Thank you! We will take your feedback into consideration.

I wanna explain the key part. The key to the kitchen was overlooked because I focused on the dude with the eyes in the window so it wasn’t the games fault but mine cause I wasn’t looking as I should. The game is amazing and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

This was definitely a gem to start off the new year. Really enjoyed the building of fear as the days progressed, as well as the story being told. I was scared to wake up every day knowing they were getting closer. Didn't expect the ending at all. Great job dpstudios!

Thank you very much! Every feedback matters to us!

Hello, I played this game and I really liked it, although the key part defintitely ruins the experience, the second key wasn't really in a bright spot and it was really easy to miss since I checked there multiple times, over all it was a neat game, good work :)


Thank you very much for your positive feedback, we released an update to fix the visibility problem with the keys.

The game looks very good and fun. Thank you!

This game was crazy except the keys

Thanks for your feedback, we will see what we can do. :)

Hey this ending fucking sucked but the rest of the game was scary

Just finished the game I was stuck for so long trying to find the keys!! LOL  but after getting through that this game is a recommend to anyone. Here is my gameplay if you would like to watch!!

Thank you! 

Indeed the keys need to be more visible, we will fix it shortly. 

This was great! An actual fear of mine is being watched from outside my house, this built up that fear in a very "slow burn" kind of way, which arguably made the whole experience even scarier for me. I enjoyed my time playing this, great work!

Thank you Adrionic for playing another one of our games :)


Hey! Thanks for the game, I enjoyed it! a very unsettling and unique atmosphere! You can check out my experience with the game below. Take care! 

Thank you for playing!

How is everyone getting into the kitchen? Lol The door is always locked for me


I have been searching for the second key for about 3 hours now and I still couldn't find the kitchen key. The kitchen and the bedroom didn't have locked doors that's why everyone was able to get inside. But Apparently they updated the game 8 hours ago and thought it's a good idea to add locked doors and scatter keys in order to make the game feels more lengthy. I reached a point where I think they just forgot to add a second key in order to open the kitchen door because I literally searched every single inch of the house and couldn't find any way into the kitchen.  


Wow well at least I know someone else is having the same issue, thanks. Would help even if they added some lights or something cause I cant see anything if there is a key hidden somewhere. 


Yea it's a bummer really it really ruined the game experience, I was having a lot of fun with it till that section.

Of course the keys are on bright spots.


There are two keys in the living room, you have to search better.


it's on the windows where you can see the dog.

Nice and creepy atmospheric game. I had fun even tough I had slight problems with cleaning and got depressed by the fate of that poor doggie :(

Thank you for the feedback. We recently update the page by writing the controls.

Damn, this has been one tense ride! I love that any jumpscares are very subtle and the whole playthrough there was an underlying sense of dread. Good stuff!

Thank you for playing !

I can't find the second key. Can you tell me where to find it?

Very cool plot twist at the end. The game even passed that horror climate without even needing the appeals of jump scare. Congratulations, man.

Thank you, we really appreciate it!

 scary game
