You've been asked to playtest a new game, something, you find out, that has been playtested by several others.  This isn't your ordinary game, though.  Something is a bit...strange.  What happened to the other playtesters?  What exactly is going on with this game?

The Creature's Game has intended glitches.  If you run into a glitch, though, where you can't get to the next page/area of the game, let me know.  Also, even though this looks like a game for kids, they may get spooked by it. 

There are now 9 endings, one of which is in a secret area that you can get to by hitting the D button or right arrow key, when you're in one of the hide and seek sections.  There have also been 2 new cut-scenes added, to add more story information.

There's also a screen resolution drop-down menu, as well as being able to toggle Fullscreen when you push the F key, in the Windows, Mac and Linux builds.  I've also added a skip ahead option, when you press the Enter key, to some of the areas.  Also, in the maze area, there's been some moving obstacles added that, when you run into them, you get a Game Over.

Hey Danielle thanks for reaching out! Tried your game but didn't realize there's updates on it, might check on it another time. Game was a bit strange and abstract but interesting nonetheless!

Loved the new update! I couldn't seem to collect all the switches though due to me never being able to go anywhere without me getting a game over (I explain the situation in the video)

, still this was really fun!

Hello The Gaming Tigerz,

Thank you for playing the updated version of my game.  I'm glad you had fun playing it.  As far as the Game Overs in the maze, I had gone and added some moving obstacles to the maze that, when you run into them, it's Game Over.  

Hi,

I just went and checked my game and realized I never moved the Area and Collision shape so that they'd be on the moving Tile map, for the obstacle.  That's why you kept getting Game Over.  It's fixed now, though.  I also put a light on the obstacles, so they'd be easier to see.  Sorry about that.

It's ok, I had a blast playing it regardless!

Ok, great.  I'm glad to hear it.

Loved it! It was weird and fun at the same time. Got most if not all endings.

Hello Alanerd,

Thank you for playing my game and for the game play video.  I'm glad you had a fun time playing it.  I'm also glad to hear you found most if not all the endings.

hey there, I gave it a shot. It was a bit confusing at first but an enjoyable ride nonetheless. Thanks!

Hi Bikkuri Panda,

Thanks for giving my game a shot and for the game play video.  I'm glad you had fun playing it.  Oh, and, I realize you just recently played my game but, if you're interested, I just updated it.

Thank you for letting me know! I'll definitely check out the update soon : )

Ok, great.  Thanks for letting me know and you're welcome.

Hello, this game was interesting. It was fun. I liked it overall and also the audio was nice, kinda like a glitch. Thank you letting me know this exits

Hello !! I really liked the game! It was cool to get different endings! I really loved the door game tho (trying not to spoil it) Thank you for letting me play!  Keep up the good work, Danielle!

Hello Bunnii,


Thank you for playing my game and for the game play video.  I'm glad you liked my game as well as the different endings and the door game.

You're welcome and thank you for the compliment.

Hello Bunnii,

Just wanted to let you know that I've updated my game, just in case you were interested in revisiting it.

OH! Awesome! Yeah, ill revisit!

Wonderful.  Glad to hear it.

Hello, I played your game on my channel and I really enjoyed it! It's very different than what I usually play, but I had a good time. I think I got 6 out of 8 endings. Only thing I would suggest is adding a threat in the game. In one part I wanted the monster to get me, but it didn't do anything. And the part with the maze could've included some sort of monster hunting the character down or something. Just wanted to give my little input. I hope you keep on creating games in the future!

Hello JadetheCake,

Thank you for playing my game and for the game play video.  Also thank you for the feedback.  I'm working on some updates and I'll let you know when they're done.

Hello JadetheCake,

Just wanted to let you know that I've updated my game, just in case you were interested in revisiting it.

What a fun game. I had a ton of fun exploring the different endings here. The art style is not something I normally play, but yet it was quirky and drew me in. In a way it lulls you in, before it starts to get weirder. The calming music also starts to contribute to this. '

The best part is the multiple endings, that take a while to figure out what to do at times. There are 8 endings altogether and I only found 5. But there are probably more including the secret one, that I encourage others to find. 

Overall it's an interesting game, and definitely show potential for being their first game.

I liked the overall story of the game, and how you end up learning more as you progress through the different endings. 

With regards to improvement:

The segment where you are collecting food items while avoiding the stones can get tiresome considering how long it is. Either having this segment be shorter or having the playtester do different things along this path would make it a bit more interesting. One side note is that sometimes, even when not directly under the stone, you can still get flattened if you are too close to the side of the stone.

When playing hide and seek with the fish, having a randomized order would probably be a bit better. However, considering how many of the endings are accessed by doing the hide and seek game, I can see why it'd be good to keep the door order the same.

Similar to someone else's point, having the cloud creature do a quick jumpscare if it catches you would be good for some tension. I did run into a bug where it seems to have caught me, but I couldn't access the doors, and I had to "skip" the minigame. There also could've been another ending if the cloud creature gets you.

Overall, I enjoyed the game. Getting additional bits of the story through the multiple endings adds incentive to actually try and achieve multiple endings, and I was interested in the story as well. Thanks for letting me know about your game.

Hello Kraiten,

Thank you for playing my game and for the game play video.  I'm glad to hear you liked the story and enjoyed the game.  Also, thank you for your feedback.  I'm sorry you ran into the bug you did.  I'll look into that.  In regards to the Hide and Seek mini-game, because the door order coincides with the password, it wouldn't really make sense to randomize it.

I'm glad you liked the story.  Also, you're welcome.

Hello Kraiten,

Just wanted to let you know that I just finished updating my game.  I went and:

Added a fade in effect to several of the scenes

Made it so that there were two more cloud creatures and they're all interactable

Made it so that there's now a middle area, after the cloud creature section, and there's two paths to choose from.

Added a new ending

Added a new platformer section to the side scroller area

Added some obstacles in the maze

And

Added some Game Over screens

I think that's all.  Let me know what you think of the changes.  Also, let me know if you run into any glitches where you can't move ahead in the game or something.

(1 edit)

Quite a unique style and a lot of room for improvements. This definitely is not for kids. I do wanted to add some points:

1. When choosing a door, maybe you can just try to randomize where the fish is instead of disabling other doors and lead you to the same door for each gameplay. Or maybe like add 1 trap door where it shows jump scare lol.

2. When collecting fish foods, disable out-of-bound access so you remain on the path...or at least on the screen.

3. Instead of instant flash when transitioning to a new scene, why not do a quick fade-in or fade-out just to give a more smooth and satisfying transitions when changing scenes.

4. Try to shorten the collection of orange food items because having it too long is quite tiring or at least make the stone-thing slower when going down. (I observed that you can only pass 1 stone before going to another.)

5. When being chased by the cloud-creature, try to add a quick jump scare or a game over scene to add more thrill on the player.

6. Remove or at least change the button command for Skip. I've had a few times (which is not in my recording) where I accidentally skipped a scene.


Over all, the concept and objective of the game is good and a lot of potential can be observed. Keep it up, Danielle! Thank you for having me as your playtester! I almost got sucked in lol.

Hello TheRabidGamer,


Thank you for playing my game and for the game play video.  I'm glad to hear you liked the concept and objective of the game.  Thank you for your feedback.  Also, I'm sorry you ran into a challenge in regards to the Skip button.  

In regards to the Hide and Seek mini-game, though, because the door order coincides with the password, it wouldn't really make sense to randomize it.  I could have the other doors do something, though, when the buttons are pushed.

Added a fade in effect to several of the scenes

Made it so that there were two more cloud creatures and they're all interactable

Made it so that there's now a middle area, after the cloud creature section, and there's two paths to choose from.

Added a new ending

Added a new platformer section to the side scroller area

Added some obstacles in the maze

Added some Game Over screens

Oh yeah, I also went and changed the skip button to the Enter key.

I think that's all.  Let me know what you think of the changes.  Also, let me know if you run into any glitches where you can't move ahead in the game or something.

Hi AdmiralRedBeard,

Thank you for playing my game and for the game play video.  I'm glad you had a great time playing it.

Hello AdmiralRedbeard,

Just wanted to let you know that I've updated my game, just in case you were interested in revisiting it.

Not a bad game if we talk about the story, the horror, and the mystery. I loved playing it and multiple endings are a nice concept for players to search and be sucked into a game.

Hi Valnoom,


Thank you for playing my game and for the game play video.  Also, I'm glad to hear you really liked playing my game and the story, mystery, etc.  

yeah, it is nice.

I had a good time with this game! Most of the time I was lost, but it's because I tried to get all of the endings! (Which I succeeded). If you're curious about my experience, then you can check out the video on my channel or watch the video I posted here! Thank You Danielle for inviting me to play your game!

Thank you for playing my game and for the game play video.  I'm glad you had a good time and that you found all the endings.  Also, you're welcome.

Hey, what an awesome little game totally original.  I love the art style as well.  Thanks for making this game, I enjoyed playing this and was able to get 7 of the 8 endings.  How do you get ending number 4?

Hi GiantChickenCreature,

Thank you for playing my game and for the game play video.  I'm glad you enjoyed playing my game and really like the art style.  Also, you're welcome.  In regards to ending four, when you're in the hide and seek section, and you've pushed the first two numbers, an arrow appears on the right side of the screen.  If you hit the right arrow key, or the D key, it'll take you to a new scene. When you move through that area, and collect all the fish food in the last scene of the section, a door will appear on the right.  If you go in that door, you'll get ending 4.

Thank you for letting me know that.  I'm going to try that now.  

You're welcome.

Hello GiantChickenCreature,

Hi ezez game,

You're welcome! This game was very interesting!

Thank you for making this game :)

Hello ezez game,

I really enjoyed your game! I got very invested in the lore of the story and the characters. Find all 8 endings. Once I found the 1st ending I started to find them back to back. Great job on the game!

Hello AshChen5,

Thank you for the game play video.  I'm glad you enjoyed the game and found all the endings.  Also, thank you for the compliment.

No problem at all! It was my pleasure to play your game

Hello AshChen5,

Cool! I'll give it a look!

Ok, great.  Thanks for letting me know.

I really enjoyed this game! Loved the art style! Recommendations, sometimes the music starts to have weird static breaking. And I got stuck with the password part several times with no way to back out if I didn't know the password! But besides that it was great!

Hi TheLlamaGoddess,

Thank you for playing my game.  I'm glad you enjoyed the game and really liked the art style.  In regards to the music, for some reason it plays a bit weird on the web browser version but it's fine outside of that.  I'm not sure why.  Also, thank you for mentioning about the password area.  I'll go and add a back button, so people can back out if needed.

Hello TheLlamaGoddess,

Just wanted to let you know that I've updated my game, just in case you were interested in revisiting it.

Hi Danielle! Thanks for making this game, I could see you put in a lot of effort into creating it, I got most of the endings and the artwork and music might deceive you into thinking this is a nice playful game but I appreciate it being kinda dark and twisted, that is such a nice touch to the style and story. I gotta say that the level of eating stuff was great when I saw pizza slices, I just love pizza :) It took me just the first try to get the password ending, as a suggestion for when you make another game, try giving the endings "Numbers" or something so we, as gamers, know that is one of the endings. Other than that it was pretty fun and not all that short, great job!

Hi Aniizul,

Thank you for playing my game and I'm glad you enjoyed it.  Also, thank you for your feedback, suggestion and compliments.  I'm working on a sequel, so I'll keep the numbered endings in mind.

Shining here, I played your game Danielle! The game did make recording choppy and rough. Not bad though, I had an interesting time with it.

Hi ShiningSpace,

Thank you for playing my game.  I apologize for the choppiness.  For some reason, though, the web browser version's like that.  I'm glad to hear it wasn't bad, though, and that you thought the game was interesting.

Yessir! I wish you the best as a developer.

Thank you for your suggestion! I didn't have time to put together a video for it right now, but I did enjoy it, games with multiple endings are usually my favorite kind of indie games, especially that with a underlying story you have to piece together. This was a great experience and I can tell you'll even better games in the future.

Thanks for the invitation to play! Was reminded of some Undertale aspects in how some areas of the game are played. Great atmosphere, very disturbing artstyle (By which I mean it's perfect for a horror game)

Things could be changed, updated and so on, but that can be said for any great game ever. was overall very impressed, will keep an eye on future progress with it.

I made some notes in my playthrough video if you want to check that out

Hi mkggaming,

No, I'm afraid there isn't.   I'm sorry to hear it's not recording.  Is there any indication of why it isn't(e.g. the window size is too big)?  

It doesnt say. Its ok though we were able to play through the website and record it

Oh, ok.  I'm glad to hear it.  In anycase, I had looked into how to add screen resolution options and updated my game to include them.   

Hey It's Pr3dator1550. You left a comment on my video asking for me to play this game. I can't pay for it as im from the UK And It needs A US Paypal account.

Hi Dakk Games,


Thank you for playing my game and I'm glad you liked it.  In regards to the possible glitch involving the music, I'm not sure why it's stutters a bit.  It could be, though, just how the web browser version plays.  I'm glad to hear it's not that noticable, though.
