Joy and me Chapter 1 (based on real facts)

I really enjoyed the game, but it's too hard for me 😭
Easily one of the best FNAF like games I've played! Great job!
Nice Game !!
Here's my no-commentary playthrough:
The settings, character designs, and jump scares are all great. The gameplay, however, definitely needs some tweaking in chapter 2. First of all, there didn't seem to be any reliable way to keep the doll out of the bedroom, which didn't make sense. The first noise I heard would often be the doll to the left side of the room, so there wasn't even an opportunity to stop it from getting in initially. Kind of strange when the instructions even tell the player not to let it in.
Also, some sort of clock to let you know how much time is left in each round would be much appreciated. Especially on the final section where you're told it'll be four minutes and it actually turns out to be over five. Additionally, during that last round, there didn't seem to be any reliable way to decipher at which location the doll was hiding. I basically passed it by clicking from hall to hall as fast as possible while blinking the flashlight repeatedly. I'd like to see a section like that one implemented with a more concrete and discernible pattern. I think it's safe to say you were inspired by FNaF 4, so maybe go back to that game and check out the sounds used and the cues given to the player throughout the night.
In any event, thanks for the game and I look forward to seeing what you have in store with Chapter 2.

Hey! I played your game on my stream! Watch it to see the live review! Here's the link for it: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCS_ArLfTfksmP1L3mplGs0w 😄
I would also appreciate if you could give an opinion on our latest game. Game devs advice is precious because we know better what it takes to make something work. It's called "Backdoor Shifts"
As short as it was and no information on how to play, it was still really creepy and a good game! Can't wait for more!
dam..whatt can i say what a good game
is this game inspired off of poppy playtime?
This Kinda Stuff Really Scares ME lol
the monster looks like jollibee lol
A CAN PLAY !!!!!!!!!!!
im 99% sure im doing it right, why am i still getting kneed in the face
the intelligence of joy (the doll) is something peculiar, it works unfairly, you have to be really fast from the beginning, scaring it instantly, if you do it that way the doll will have less chance of killing you, every second it takes to scare it away Adding up, those seconds that you lose make the doll attack you faster, doing many times unfair, I recommend you to be as constant and fast as possible, it is really difficult, but if you get it I congratulate you, you really could against a monster that has its own decisions and intelligence
thanks for playing!!!
Hello, I would like to translate your game into Korean and apply it to your game, is it possible? If possible, please send me a message in the mail below
This game hella scary. Great job!
There is something spooky going on here... With the darkness everywhere I must find my way through it but there is only 1 problem... There is an evil doll on the loose and it is hunting me... will I survive and make it our alive??? Find out in this video.
What a fantastic game this is. A little gem tbh. Lots of fun and a bloody great game. Really had a great time playing this. Cannot wait till the next one...Thank you for making this game...
That was Epic. 5/5
could yall leave a like on this vid pls, it helps so much!!!
The 3d animated flash part was amazing, but I think my biggest frustration was the lack of a clear end to the scenes. A countdown or progress bar would help a lot with showing how close you are while ramping up the stress towards the end.
That doll was creepy. Great work!
one of the scariest games ive ever played great job !!!
Holaa, amigo!! Soy un youtuber chiquitito y me gustaría poder hacer un gameplay de tu juego. Siempre hago videos de comedia con una buena y entretenida edición, pero ahora me gustaría comenzar el video explicando la historia real en la que se basa. Te importaría comentarme a detalle lo sucedido en verdad para poder narrarla en mi video? si es que no es mucha molestia, obvio. Desde ya muchas gracias y muchisimos éxitos con este y más proyectos que tengas, buenisimo todo!! <3
el juego es la historia de como un juguete comprado por esta familia es el causando de la peor pesadilla de cualquier persona, perder a toda tu familia, este juego tiene una jugabilidad parecida a fnaf no por que sea un fan game o algo así, si no por que e querido recrear como se siente la parálisis del sueño, ya que el juego esta basado en mis pesadillas, joy es un diseño sacado de esas pesadillas mías, es una recreación de lo que e vivido con una historia
los siguientes dos capítulos no tendrá esta jugabilidad estática ya que es el origen de joy lo que se explicara
From what I've learned in the game is that you have to turn on the light fast on the robot's face and on the phone part I think you have to be looking at the phone for them to type.
Por lo que he aprendido en el juego es que tienes que encender la luz rápido en la cara del robot y en la parte del teléfono creo que tienes que estar mirando el teléfono para que escriban.
(Esto es para los que aun no saben)
Hi there I played ur game waited awhile for the game while it looks good and awesome the game in ways doesn't seem to be finished feel like u shouldn't be dropped in for this kinda game with no tutorial also I think ur ai is bugged he moving 100 miles per hours sometimes which is fair for the round
This was a cool horror game that really reminds me of the game, FNAF due to the game mechanics and the 2D part of the game. I did not manage to complete the game but I am kinda curious as to whether this game is trying to do something similar to FNAF as the 2D part and the main part of the game resembles FNAF a lot. I loved the animation done at the title screen, as well as the design of the monster for the game and found the game a little disappointing when I realised that this game appears to be based on FNAF. I am pretty curious as to whether the game is going to continue with FNAF game mechanics or whether there will be different game mechanics for each chapter of the series. The game looked really good and I would love to see the game turn into something completely original and mind-blowing. XD
Thank you for reading my comment and I wish you good luck in your future endeavours.
hey! thanks for your opinion, the game will be point and click, a genre that is very reminiscent of fnaf, because I want people with few resources to play it, and yes, the game for each chapter will have a different gameplay and each one will have its fresh air , thanks for playing it!
Okay, I'm almost certain I broke the game multiple times. Despite that it definitely has a lot of potential. Unfortunately there were a lot of parts that were extremely unclear. I got through the first part by sheer luck, and the second part was so confusing I gave up after trying for over half an hour. Some instructions to guide the player would make the game 10 times better. If these issues get fixed by the later addictions, I'm sure to check out the later chapters! :)
There is some more feedback at the end of the video here:
Se ve totalmente increíble el juego, que suerte que tiene idioma español para entender la historia con los subtítulos, gracias por eso :D
Estaría bueno que de un tip al comienzo del juego de como hacer para sobrevivir ya que me resulta difícil pasar una parte, es que no se como sobrevivir esa noche que esta al acostarse en la cama después de que te siguiera una sombra al ver los padres muertos en su habitación. Debería averiguarlo por mi mismo y puede ser aburrido eso.
Y otra cosa mas, ¿Tiene Discord? estaría bueno que tuviera uno xD
heyyyy! soy español, denada por el idioma español xd, esa parte del cuarto tienes que ser muy rápido y prestar mucha atención a los sonidos, cada sonido te dice si se movió a un lado o a otro
claro que tengo discord! pronto lo pondré publico, gracias por tu opinión del juego!
Ooh, pensé que hablabas ingles por la descripción del juego, perdón xd
Tu juego es buenísimo maann, esto ya debería hacerse popular :0
ah, en el Discord del juego, si necesitas algo de ayuda te puedo ofrecer la mía. Mi name es Patata-Chan#2179 por las dudas sjsj
