Description [-]
*Winner of Gizmog1's Halloween Contest 2003*

Created by Shadowiii and Mr. B

On October 24th, three friends dared each other to enter an old house on the edge of town. At the last minute, however, one of them (a new girl in town) backed out. The other two entered the house, leaving the girl alone outside.

A week passed without a trace.

Finally, unable to stand it any longer, the remaining girl summoned up all her courage and entered the house alone. Armed with only a flashlight and her determination to find her friends, she entered the dark house.

And thus the nightmare began...

Current Version: v. 2.0 (March 5th, 2004 Version)

New Updates:
Bam/Bamless in the same file
All original music
Fixed some npc glitches.
All text boxes are readable, even in the dark. The red text doesn't clash with the rug anymore (well, not as much)
Credits fixed (sorry Mr. B! ^_^)

Some features include:

1. Detailed NPC's, Tilemaps (yes, tilemaps), and gameplay designed and created by Shadowiii
2. A competely unique and interesting OHR experience, using the engine for almost everything it wasn't created to do.
3. Detailed (and difficult) puzzles, traps, and mysteries.
4. A semi-decent story (best I could pull of in a short horror game)
5. Explore the mansion with your flashlight. Explicit attention was spent on detail; for example as your batteries grow low your flashlight's beam will begin to dim.
6. Explore side rooms in a first person "Myst" style environment.

Game has about 10 minutes of game play minimum (but you will use your brain the entire 10 minutes) and around an hour or so game play if you haven't memorized the entire game. :)

Game includes a TXT with a detailed hints system, ranging from Basic, Non-Spoiler hints to a Walkthrough.

You MUST READ THE README in order to know how to play. If you don't, you'll basically either die a lot or make the game much harder on yourself.

Hope you enjoy it!
