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.
Hey there, really happy to know that Discomfort did its job with you :D Thanks a lot for the kind comment!
not as good as imscared but still not bad :)
Hey, thanks for playing! :D
(I think you won't play it again, but just to let you know: on "Discomfort" controls, you can scroll through mails with R & F buttons)
VERY COOL GAME. I LOVE IT.
Loved the video, thanks a lot for playing and liking the game! ;D
This was fun (and unsettling!). I foud myself waiting for the inevitable jumpscare. The ambient was superv, and the art direction simply amazing. Love this game.
The only moment when I felt a little off was during the gameboy scene. Felt it a little bit disconnected, or just to irrelevant for that point in time.
Okay, just found out you are the "I'm scared"-guy. Now it all makes sense hahaha
Hey, these really are some Kind words... Thanks a lot!
I can see why you find the gameboy section to be a bit off, but I'm glad you were able to enjoy everything else nonetheless! :)
Hey, thank you for sharing this great work! I'm very amazed by the aesthetics. I see that you are using Asperite but I wonder how did you combine it with the 3D environment? ? My guess is some kind of dithering lens filter is being used here?
Thanks to you for playing and commenting!
I made the game textures with Aseprite and the standard 3D functions of GameMaker Studio 2. As for the dither/color limit effect, that's the work of a shader!
Excellent stuff as always, low-res spookiness! I must admit I was stuck on the "bad" ending for longer than I'd care to admit, was convinced it had something to do with the sequence I was doing the instructions in! Screwed my head on and got it eventually haha. Also I always always look out of the windows in horror games and this satisfied that urge ;)
Made a playthrough of it, it was really fun and I loved the old school looking graphics.
