Walking home alone one night, you meet an injured stranger in need of help. So you do what you’d hope anyone else would do for you in that situation… you invite him in… 

~~~

This is a horror visual novel with elements of action, thriller, and romance depending on how you play. Choices are the key to deciding how this night ends.

Note: This version of the game is ~10% of the full game. Some of the images are placeholder sketches and will be finished at a later date. This demo is very minimal to meet the jam deadline. The next release will be sometime later this year! So feel free to follow me for updates.

Current Game Features:

  • 5,500+ words
  • 1 CG sketch
  • Nameable player character (gender-neutral)
  • Different choices to discover
  • Plenty of blood, horror, and general yandere nonsense to come

Writing, sprite art, CG art, and programming - Squidcolas
(GUI will be done by another artist in the full game)

Music - audionautix.com
(Music and SFX are from free sources that have no ties to the game concept or its creation, a full list of the used sounds will be in-game)

I thank anyone for taking the time to play this early demo as I’m still learning a lot and working to finish the full game. I’d also like to thank my friends and the Yandere Jam community for helping and supporting me during the creation process. 

(And if you finish the demo, feel free to comment what color hearts you got!)

Man you don't know how much I wanted to give Devyn a literal oscar for his 10/10 acting. I'm fairly sure he hurt himself to get MC's attention (or maybe I'm wrong, who knows!), but either way, it would definitely be hard to ignore him in that state.  Honestly, I find myself getting taken over by Devyn.  Who doesn't love a seemingly sweet, socially awkward guy, you know? To top it off, he's REALLY pretty too, can you really say no to him?? 

I'm definitely insterested in seeing what he'll do when he gets to our house. I really do want to know more about Devyn and what kind of stunts he'll pull off, so I'll be wishing you the best with the development!

I also got myself some green, orange, and purple hearts. After reading through the log, I'd have to say, it's actually pretty accurate LMAO the hearts concept is super creative tho!

This game really played with my feelings... On the one hand, Devyn is introduced as a sweet, but timid person who seriously needs help, so I can't help but want to help him and keep him safe... but at the same time, he displays some very subtle strange behaviour such as telling me that I have a wonderful name despite not knowing it yet. I have some suspicions about the real reason why he ended up bleeding on the grass, perfectly coinciding with the MC's late-night trip to buy milk...

But honestly, what I really like about this demo is that everything seems open to interpretation! Is Devyn's timid and overly sweet personality a ploy to lure the MC into a false sense of security, or is it because he's just smitten with them? Did he really end up bleeding out on the street because of a stalker, or was he just making that up so that you would be convinced to let him stay in your house? It doesn't help that he refuses to go to either the police or a hospital. Was he really stabbed, or were the wounds self-inflicted? Part of me thinks that the blood might not actually have been his, since we never actually get to see the stab wounds... But this is all just rambly speculation!

Other than that, I love the art for this game,  and the overall atmosphere created by the music! It really made me feel like a person walking alone late at night, just trying to make my way home. Like someone really was watching me. 

I can't wait to see how the night unfolds! It'll be very interesting indeed...

Lastly, I got red, orange, and green hearts!

I'm excited for the full game to come out! Really curious about the story!

Wonderful game. I loved the writing and art. The eeriness was a nice touch and had me replaying the game a few times.

bro this is a pretty great game. If devyn was OUR stalker, then i would give him the award for being the smartest stalker. i wonder if he purposely hurt himself and left himself on the way to our house so we can help him and bring him into our house, then yea this guy deserves an award. Btw i got green, purple, and orange hearts and i cant wait for the full release!

I really enjoyed this demo.  Dyven is very well written, he draws you in even though you know it can't end well. The art is beautiful and the environments are haunting. The game does an amazing job at balancing your emotions both keeping you on your toes and making you uncomfortable and putting you at ease. I would really recommend checking it out and I look forward to the full release. Thank you to the creator for sharing 😊
