If you want, you can check my full game playthrough here:

Doing the Grave Goof was fun, but I think we're facing a big conspiracy :o

fun! if im being serious i had to lie at the end cause i uh didnt remember the number but yea i loved it

(1 edit)

it got me using 100% of my brain for simple questions, 10/10


Genius and devious. This game somehow got me questioning basic things. Great game.

Bro marvelous work! again im amazed with how you make a simple gameplay and high pressure of psychological fear. Chef kiss, Bravo.


pretty entertaining. i got jumpscared with a picture of a kitten and i don't know how many corners a star has. very nice


Great game.  I'd like to say that I did it first time, but it requires a bit of thought.  For anyone who is complaining that things are wrong: they are not; just think about it and you'll find the answer.


very good game. i beat it in about 10 attempts.


For some reason, with the half-time one, even when I don't press because of the spider I lose... Otherwise, great game! I had a lot of fun until I got to the annoying ceiling spider part rip

im confused an the 5th one


I am so scard when it says 

Do you like jump scard


It is difficult for me. 

it's unkind for someone foreign

does a star not have 5 corners?




it should be 5 but the game says 10


It has ten corners. 5 are the points, 5 are between the points. 


a pentagon has 5 corners. a full pentagon is a star.


A pentagon has five corners. I didn't get a pentagon in the game; I got a pentagram which has 10 corners.

same here it killed me when i got the star and i pressed five times

It has ten corners. 5 are the points, 5 are between the points. 

I pressed after half time and still lost I don’t know what I did wrong :(

Never mind I’m dumb there was a spider

Wanted to test myself...realised I cannot follow a simple set of instructions. Great.

Great video! Jumpscare gotcha!


Awesome. You've made a lot of awesome games.

can u even win tho?!


yes :)


I've gotten about 1000 fatal failures

one of the best games i ever played. Very creative, simple but tense. Love it :)

Great end btw 

It somehow reminds me of the Watson Scoot Test.

I tried pressing jumpscare and thought it would do it at the end rather than interrupting a different one. But the 1/2 time thing, that was just unfair.

This is so cool!

Great game

Thank you!


You got me with that "release"

Yeah, it was a bit of a cruel trick I admit.

got me too


Great game and visuals, took a while but i finished... sure glad i remembered all those required numbers ಠ_ಠ oh and my dreams are now haunted by that horrifying jumpscare.

I wanted to test it, but the "jumpscare" comment frightened me.
