The comedy and the horror blended together so well, something I don't think is easy to achieve.
I really CANNOT wait for the full release. I don't play many fixed perspective games but this one was brilliant.
Play this game. (or watch my video 🙂)
The game was intriguing.. I'm getting a Silent Hill/Resident Evil Vibe, It has that survival horror aspect that a lotta games miss.
It was a little slow in the beginning, but it adds that FOMO(Fear of Missing Out) feeling when it comes to wanting to know what's on the ANT FARM! And Sokolov, I'm guessin the Scientist mad type, really makes me wanna know!
Now I GOTTA KNOW!
Props to the creator and hope your characters don't seize to exist LOL
Video For the game Here:
ps.. I'm a good Samaritan, but why the trash? XD
I am excited to see where this one goes! I used to camp a lot with friends so this hit right at home with its creepy factor.
I played your demo through the Spectral Mall Demo Disc, thus the thumbnail!
Great game. Interesting concept and I love the voice acting. Definitely interested in trying the full game.
Such an amazing Demo, You guys did a great job! I loved the art style, I loved the comedy, and I loved the eeriness. I can’t wait to see where the story goes and I am so pumped to play the full game once released.
I loved it cant wait for the the full game!!!!
how do u download rar files
I really enjoyed playing the demo of this game! I can't wait for the full release! The only problem I had was using the key for the gas station. I grabbed the key and tried to unlock the door that's at the top of the stairs, but nothing happened. No dialogue and nothing happened with the door. I then tried to open the back door, but nothing happened and the key disappeared from my inventory. I had to restart the game. Otherwise I had a great time!
Thanks for the report. This should be fixed in the latest build. Thanks! -Mark
This was honestly one of the best games well demo i played recently!
Are you thinking about translating the game to spanish? If so I can help you with that, I need to translate a game for a university project. :D
Well made demo lot of mystery left for the full game and definitely will wishlist! Here's my video on the demo
Great demo! I was surprised when it ended, I wanted more
Playing a Hauted PS1 version, I got stuck inside an invisible wall after walking towards the abandoned fuel station.
My apologies! What spot of the map was this in? -Mark
This Game is Awesome. I wishlisteded in Steam and also left a link In my description so more people Wishlist. Can`t wait for the full release.
This game is amazing
this game has such a sick concept, can't wait till it fully releases on steam! If anyone is interested, here's my playthrough of it:
ooo Yeah! I'm lookin forward to this one... Easy Wishlist
A thoroughly fun demo, the way it flows is like watching a really cool horror comedy, I love the setup and atmosphere, the puzzle was cute and I am so looking forward to the full game just to see where it goes. Great work!
Pretty good game, I love the art style, the expressions. Shaders are really well made.
(I got stuck in that place)
Please make subtitles in portuguese for the game
I enjoyed the demo very much and sorry for not adding any Japanese and/or English subtitles to the upload. Overall, I have a high hope for the game but it needs some brush-ups.
Positives ✓ The fix camera angle brings out retro and eerie vibes. ✓ Weird jokes well fit in the humor and Lovecraftian genres. ✓ Dialogues with full voice over. And more!
Negatives ✓ Subtitles and voice are little too hard to comprehend due to the font size and the volume. I should have adjusted the volume better but I wish I could hear dialogues more clearly. ✓ There are lots of minor bugs but I understand that it’s still demo. ✓ Lack of language options. I understand that having more language options could cost more. Poor translations could ruin games but it would be nice to have more accessibilities depending on markets they are targeting for.
It was just $2 but I’m glad I donated the little money to support the developers. Definitely waiting for the full release 😊
The game atmosphere is well done it feels like i'm playing a Resident evil game. and the story is great looking forward for the full game :).
I just watched your devlog #1 on your YT channel, and its nice to see developers putting 100% effort to their game i wish you good luck and make the best game ever existed on this planet XD. And here's my gameplay, go check it out :)
The game works excellently, no gameplay bugs or annoyances. There is a camera angle in the corner of the gas station where you don't see your character for a bit but that's not a big deal.
I just hope the developers choose a proper goal for their game instead of the current shotgun spread of talent.
Also, can I voice a cool homeless guy or something?
Thanks for making games!
A really solid demo! Excited for the full project, great stuff
I did get stuck on collision with the trees a few times where even if I reloaded the save I was still stuck to the tree, happened on 2 different trees, im sure you prob know :)
Full Demo NO Commentary
Thanks for the heads up! There's actually an update for this but we forgot to push it. It should go live within the hour!
10 Dead Doves impresses right away. The mixture of more modern standards of cinematic composition in cutscenes with oldschool character models and slightly-too-detailed faces gives the game a lot of personality right away, especially when the more mundane hiking part is immediately preceded by something wild and surreal to keep you engaged and curious.
Our two leads are great - charming and funny. But I do feel like their dialogue gets a bit too inside-jokey on occasion at least at first. I get that this is done to assert that the two know eachother well, but it happens a lot and very fast to the point of some parts of the dialogue being near incomprehensible, at least to me,
I'd also have liked if the demo either removed the trash if it doesn't play in until later, or gave some indication of what it will be good for. I compulsively picked it all up whenever I saw it with no payoff. But that's a very, very minor nitpick.
10 Dead Doves definitely has my attention for future purchase with its quirky identity and bizarre events - keep it up, guys. Excited to see where this goes.
Hey! I played this in the Spectral Mall Demo Disc and included it in my roundup video. Starts around 12:38 (if you only want to see this game). Best of luck with the development!
Unique monster: check
Mysterious atmosphere: check
Suspenseful story: check
Interesting characters: check
My desire for a full version: check
The unique story, fun dialogue, and creepy atmosphere has made this a demo to remember! One of the devs also seems to have a secret affinity for gas station hotdogs…..
It would be wonderful if the subtitles where more readable! Currently with the font that's used and the fact it's a white text with no background, there's many cases where it's just unreadable and unfortunatly meant I had to watch a youtube video playthrough of it instead of continuing to play it myself..
Sorry about that! We will be working on improving visibility and accessibility for the final release, thank you for the heads up!
I came here with little to no expectations, and I left so damn entertained. I love seeing developers do comedy horror right, and these guys are no exception. Well done, devs. Can't wait for the full release.
Hello, I played this game and I had a lot of fun with it! Amazing voice acting and cutscenes, and the whole setting was great, can't wait for the full game, good work :)
