Matt gave the game a try and is looking forward to more.
Loved playing the beta, I think once you guys come out with the final product of this game, it's gonna be great! I really like the concept/mechanic of switching in between worlds. I thought that was a really clever idea for a horror/mystery game.
Gave it a go...
very cool and spooky game . love the puzzles and scares there really good. i also like the power you have it s very unique and different . cant wait to see more of this game!!
Thank you so much for play, stay tuned for future updates! :D
This game was really good and I ewnojyed it a lot!
i like the demo good with puzzle great job with the demo
I played through the beta and here are my thoughts.
I liked the atmosphere, the creepy pictures, the tv showing piano performance after doing the clock puzzle, that was a bit unnerving to go into the basement and see what happens. The switching between worlds mechanic was nice, I liked that sometimes you get to see more and sometimes it even opens new areas or teleports you into a cabin near the house. Definitelly interesting.
I know this is only beta but in my opinion it really needs more story, plot and some meaning behind the puzzles and the setting. Now it's a spooky house with some puzzles where you have to find numbers to put in the right places, that doesn't make sense, at least for me. Sure there's some story with the kids seeing some demon or devil, I think it's overused at this point. But nonetheless, it still can be creepy and scary.
But... The jumpscares. The song plays, turn around, boom and please continue your investigation, detective. It just doesn't make sense and it's cheap. It's kinda well made with the animations and sounds but it's cheap because it has nothing to do with anything. The monster playing piano in the basement was quite good though, it didn't do jumpscare the jumpscare but it gave the creepiness and progressed the game since you get an item that's left on the piano.
A few tiny details that might need to be worked on - the ladder in the basement doesn't have a collider, you can go through it, I also think there could be more sounds for interaction, footsteps and things like that. You may already know about these things.
Overall - nice atmosphere, cool mechanic switching between worlds, although cheap scares, really lacking story and plot (at least for my taste) and it kinda falls between many other "horror" games where you do key hunt puzzles and get scared for no reason from time to time.
But hey! Maybe you want to make this game the way it is, so feel free to not listen to me if that's the case, I'm just giving you my feedback. :)
Well to start this game was alot of fun i liked the horror feel and the creepy setting mixed with the puzzles. Its a really well made game can't wait for a full release. If you would like to see my playthrough here it is:enjoy 😉👍
We hope to get a full version in the future and hope you play it too, thanks and best regards!
This game is really cool and scary! I had a lot of fun trying it out great job!
Really awesome enjoyed this hope you finish is thanks so much here is my playthrough
Thanks for playing and share the game ^^
I really like the vision that you got in this game! This game was fun and I had a great time playing it, the puzzles weren't to hard and the scares were well paced out. Thanks for hitting my out about this game, hope you guys continue to make great games!
We appreciate the value you give to the game, thanks for playing it and we hope to see you here :D
This game looks awesome. I can't wait to see it complete! One question: what music did you use for the piano? It's haunting and lovely.
So far the frame rate and performance was pretty solid.
Lacks a lot of options such as to turn off the motion blurring. Maybe just me and my lighting set up but found some areas pretty hard to see and not enough lighting so I ended up using the "other world" mechanic a lot more.
It had some decent puzzles reminds me of some point and click adventures but the clock was the most frustrating one. There isnt much to do in the house besides those 3 puzzles so the house lacked some interactivity.
Interesting concept but needs some more work done, if it's still set in the 80's there needs to be more props that represent that era because that felt like an after thought and because of "nostalgia".
A couple of jump scares did get me because I am in fact a coward.
We will saw to implement brightness options, if necessary more props, we wanted to offer an experience, in the future we will fill the house. Thanks for share the game and for this feedback ^^
this is God Game. ^^
La bétâ est GENIALE ! J'attend la suite avec impatience ! GOOD JOB ! TO BE CONTINUED !
Not a bad Demo! Would like to see this finished project. Nice little jump scares and like the idea of switching worlds!
So I didn't manage to finish because a) I got stuck and b) the heartbeat sound was driving me crazy.
The scares in this are legit though. The shadows in the house and the hand on the paper really got me good.
Sorry we are already aware that some pc sounds very loud, we are working on it. Thanks for playing! ^^
I love the mechanics where you can see between worlds.
I keep calling the ghost Abe lincoln.
I wish there was more though.
Great game BTW!
I couldn't even finish the game tbh because i got too scared haha.
This game was literally awesome! I struggled with the clock puzzle, but aside from that, this game was incredible!
Played this as part of a 3 Random Horror games. It was a pretty okay Beta, though i felt kind of lacking. The scares were pretty generic and the atmosphere just felt like something we've seen a million times. Overall, not a back game though. I give a full in-depth review and feedback at the end of my video.
Thanks for the feedback and improve in future versions.
this has come along leaps and bounds since the first version I played :) very well done
We remember when you played our alpha, we took note of the feedback!
Loved it that's all I gotta say
Thanks for playing Cursed Soul along with other horror games! :D
It's cool! I hope I get the official version soon.
how do you play
I think it would be more immersive if the footsteps were heard.
I enjoyed playing this game.
Really cool game. I like two different worlds idea, but i think it could have been used a little more.
As it is a beta we are testing the support that the two worlds would have, thanks for playing and we are happy to see you again. :)
Played this before beta and I'm loving the changes! Great work! Cant wait to see what comes next!
Are there any NPCs in the game? Looks like a nice creepy game.
Awesome game really loved the story, but as its a beta i had expected some problem and honestly there aren't
many but i still have request to add configure setting for game quality as the game for me had some problem rendering in stuff and it kinda froze in between and also some minor tweaks that i may have pointed out in the game play hope you have enjoy the gameplay
In future versions we will improve the performance for a better experience, thanks for playing and share the game :)
(100% COMPLETE.) *SEES A RITUAL, PROCEEDS TO COMPLETE IT* (I see nothing wrong.)
Played this game along with another indie horror game with my friend!
This was a fun experience. i enjoy this game and the puzzle is simple to solve it. This is fun.
Thank you very much for playing Cursed Soul, hopefully you enjoyed!
really fun game, couldn't figure out some of the puzzles, but I know I will play it again soon - great job with this game. here is my video on it
Sorry if you don't finish the game, try the next time in the bedroom of the girl. Thanks for play! We continue to improve the gaming experience.
I gave my Let's Play take on it! Hope everyone enjoys.
