'Consternation'is a free-to-play 16-bit horror game developed by CrackedGhostGames and Raster_Entertainment. The game throws you into a massive building with nothing and you must find a way to escape. Unfortunately, you're not alone in there.
You get your name written down below as a 'Donor'.
Each level gets progressively harder as more variants are discovered lurking in the building. Find the key on each level to unlock the padlocked door. Each level introduces a new creature, each with unique abilities to keep you on your toes. Can you make it out of the building?
"This game is panic inducing"
"I'm trembling so much it's unreal"
"I'm gonna have a heart attack"
"I love how it doesn't even need jumpscares to be scary"
"I'm actually terrified"
"The audio really really works to make this as scary as possible"
I played Consternation for a 2 random indie games episode on my channel (it’s the first in the video if you watch).
The game is simple, but effective if you enjoy maze games.
I personally don’t have too much love for the realm of games that sees the player put in a maze being chased around by various enemies. I always get lost and far too disorientated for find it enjoyable.
However, there are people that would find that style of gameplay enjoyable, and for those people, this game would be great.
OK, ive tried it now. And after several heart attacks, i can say i enjoy this and many of the choices made in it. I love the Delver esq ness. i only got so far...-_- couldnt find a key. But its all good, and works as the game that it is! i love the graphics, so keep on keepen on my friend!
Ah, I got halfway through programming controller support in this update so the game will only let you play with mouse and keyboard if no controllers are plugged in. So try unplugging all controllers then opening the game.
The game could use a little more objects around the maze. I know it's suppose to seem empty but it'll definitely inhance the overall apperance. Also the game needs some sort of map. Maybe you uncover more as you walk sround the maze or something like that. Amazing game though! Huge props to you man :D Keep it up!
Nice game with a chilling atmosphere! I like that you don't really know what awaits you in the depths of the levels. I found the audio especially scary, but those pixel things that you run into aren't that bad either.
I'd like to invite your game to this year's Game Development World Championship"
A pretty basic horror game. The graphics are good for a pixel game and it controls well. I found a major problem/annoyance being the lack of checkpoints. Because the maps are not randomized once you figure out one level, you are forced to redo it every time you die making for a very annoying, grab the key go to the exit, hope you don't die scenario over and over.
Something you should add is rooms instead of just dead ends, adding tables and chairs, pictures and paintings will help make it feel more alive then just a massive hallway. Another suggestion is changing the wall/floor/ceiling textures between each floor. Adding paintings to the hallways will make it feel more unique then just gray hallway everywhere.
