THE CREATOR REPLYED TO MY COMMENT (:
The entire game has the uncanny valley feeling, I felt cursed after playing, I was wondering why I was hearing gnawing, I thought I was going fucking crazy. This was awesome!
Also btw, what did you use to make the models?
Sorry for the late answer & Thanks a lot! If you felt cursed then I'm really happy with the result :D
(.gmmod models were made with GameMakerModelCreator)
how do i put it into fullscreen
I played this so long ago!! I remember failing the first time because I didn't do the ritual in the right order. Then, I wanted to do it in the perfect order, but the email itself wasn't in the "right" order completely :P (turns out, it doesn't matter and I got the "good" ending). Really love the graphics and story, it gives me nostalgia back when playing Imscared on Gamejolt as a little, free indie game :)
Thanks a lot, glad to hear the game triggered some nostalgia :) Also, NEED.net is awful and should be marked as spam indeed...
Do I have to restart me desktop to get rid of the gnawing sounds?
man, it was aweasome!!! really good atmosphere. but is there a way to do things right?
at the end it said im cursed but ia am i hear gnawing on my desk top so i restarted it o_o
i swear to fucking god i heard gnawing cuz i cut the wrong finger
im actually cursed
Hello! How did u achieve this retro style graphic?
I just make a very small game and then I stretch the hell out of it (oh and there's also a color limiter involved in this one)
-Made a Video.
"short and spoopy. made me feel a little bit uneasy."
Eerie atmosphere complemented by a wonderfully chunky visual style reminiscent of early Freescape games - loved it!
played your game in an indie romp, hope you enjoy. not sure if I solved the puzzle right though as she done did the murder on my face twice
your game starts at 14:05
I was so confused. I somehow got stuck on the idea that it needed to be my house instead of my finger, but I got there eventually.
I played this to kick off my Bloodcurdling Barrage in which I will be posting daily horror game videos for all of October. Really enjoyed it. Lots of little touches to show how much effort and love went into it and it was actually creepy. Well done
Great, creepy experience! The email portion is definitely the most unsettling part, but being able to look out the windows was a great way to build tension as well.
cool and creepy little game! I like the whole pixelated style.
Loved the art style & loved the theme of the game. How creepy was it that it was starring at you from outside the entire time? I knew it was going to come in eventually. But that feeling of not knowing when was haunting me the entire time. Great little game & a very talented implementation of a game within a game!
Neat little experience!(10:37)
Loved it. such a cool wee game indeed
Bro this game really made me feel very uneasy. If that is what you were going for you did an amazing job!
Really glad to hear that, that's what Discomfort wanted to do!
Thanks for playing and liking the game :)
Great game, Loved the art style... Here is my speedrun
short and sweet ! and by sweet I mean SCARY XD
but could I have won at the end ? I feel like I missed something !
check out my gameplay and tell me what you think !
Hey, thanks for playing :D Glad you had fun!
There's a way to "do right", check again those pesky NEED.NET emails...
This made me feel super discomforted. I've been cursed now.
Very creepy and unsettling game. Love the old school vibes! Very good experience! Here's my playthrough:
Made me feel super uneasy, a great game! I'm glad I got to play it!
You're great, thanks a lot for playing and liking the game!
Nice game. I like the graphic style. The controls are a little wonky.
i have 30 minutes on this game but that just cause for 10 minutes of it i was confused as in what to do and the other 15 minutes was just me screaming at the guy in the room, as an example > "WHAT YOU DOING IN MY HOUSE!!!!????" <
jokes aside though, this gave me IMSCARED vibes and actually scared me so i rate it a 10/10
also went back and found out how to get the other ending too
Wew, thanks a lot for the 10/10! Looks a bit too much to me, but I will cherish it :D
Jokes aside, thanks for playing :) I'm glad you liked the game
My god the sounds were amazing! I had chills down to my bones! I expected jumpscares from many different places but didn't get any. I felt very... uncomfortable. But in a good way! The atmosphere in the game is so strange and weird. It makes you feel alert of what might be coming! If only this game was longer!!!!! Thanks so much and keep up the good work! I really appreciate 3d pixelated games like these because it reminds me of the older times and they run pretty well on my trash-like computer!
Hey, thanks a lot for liking Discomfort this much :D I'm really happy knowing that the game did its job with you (and that you liked it, of course).
Thanks for playing!
I made a video on your game and had fun. Skip to 6:14
Summoning rituals almost never work out for the greater good...
Hey there! I played your game today and I absolutely loved it!
The artstyle mixed with the audio and controls really gave this game the discomforting vibe which I think you were definetely going for! After a while you feel like someone is breathing in your neck giving you another discomforting feeling making this game really scary! I definetely enjoyed this! I played it twice, once on Camera and afther that one more time on my own! The Gameboy minigame was a pretty fun gimmick in my opinion.
