What a pleasant and adorable experience from start to finish! Loved the story, adored the characters and artwork, and couldn't get enough of the interactions.

I'm glad you liked my music enough to give it, at least in my opinion, a very fitting home. It was surreal to hear like, half of the album's collection all in one place, I'm so touched!

Thank you for letting my art share an experience with your art, and thank you for the adventure!

I'm so glad you enjoyed it! It was a treat to match your music to the scenes in the game, I think they all fit together really well! 🎃

so cute but i got stuck in a rock in the cave

This should be resolved in the new update coming soon!

Hello AllieMackie,

My name is Antonia Gates, I manage the games at CoolmathGames.com. I really enjoyed Hauntsfield, I think it would be a great fit on our site!

I'm writing to ask if the game is available for non-exclusive licensing. Our licenses are totally non-exclusive, so you would maintain all of the IP rights and could continue to develop and distribute the game however you'd like to.

Please let me know if it is available, and how much it would cost. I'm looking forward to discussing this with you soon!

Best regards,

Antonia Gates

so cute! i loved every part of it! i don't always enjoy fetch quests in games but i really loved interacting with every character!

Thanks so much!

great game, I was invested the whole time :)

Thank you! :)

¿final version?

Yes

This game is really cute. I love the characters and how the story progression goes. The fetch quests actually don't feel like fetch quests as it feels like there is a cause and effect happening. I love this game and I hope you continue making more!

That's very kind, thank you!! I'm so glad you liked it!

enjoyed it, great game

Thank you!

It's a bit weird for some folks - try using the A button instead :)

GB Studio / Tiled / Aseprite :)

Thank you! :)

Nice! It's really cute and the quests were quite fun.

Glad you enjoyed it! :)

Neat Halloween-themed game! The characters were cute and charming. It’s a very straightforward game, there’s nothing too challenging. But it was a wholesome experience and I enjoyed my time with it!
