Visually this was an interesting game. Graphics wise is a great use of the Unity Engine. What is great is all the fun secrets you find when staring into your phone. Each bit has a little more information on where to go, or the fate of the family. The puzzles while straight forward, do take some thought before proceeding, and even then took me a minute to find the good ending. Overall will keep an eye on future installments. I definitely recommend this, and everyone should give it a try.
Wow, thank you so much for the kind words and for making such an entertaining video!
I'm glad you're keeping an eye out for more stuff, hopefully I'll be able to start releasing things in the coming months!
Oh well thank you so much :). That means a lot. It was a fun game to play. I love that you have multiple endings. Took me a minute to figure them out. I definitely will keep an eye out. Because if you made something interesting like this, then I'm curious to see what else you make in the future.
Absolutely loved this concept!
this game was so much fun and super creepy/cool i loved the concept of seeing things only through the phone great game
Sorry for the late reply! Thank you so much for the kind words! I'm very happy you enjoyed the game.
Tjabba tjena hallå! I played your game in my latest Itch.io Horror Games video! The part with your game starts around 9:53! You did a great job with this game, really enjoyed it! And I hope you enjoy the video if you decide to check it out! Ha're gött!
Loved the puzzles and the spooky atmosphere. I really enjoyed finding all the endings! Would love to see what else you create in the future!The use of the phone also made the game that much more intriguing
Very cool game, took me a bit to figure out but was great twist on conventional horror games.
This game really surprised me with the phone mechanic and I loved it. The game also gave me a good scare xD
Hello, I played this game and I really enjoyed it, the phone mechanic was great and it made the game even more creepier, good work :)
Sorry for the late reply!
Thank you very much for giving my game a shot, I'm glad you enjoyed it.
Check out my video.
Here's some gameplay
Listen if you watch this just know, its very hard being stupid lol, overall really good game, BIG UP to the makers!!!
I need more NOW!! Such a great game and idea! I can't wait for more rooms to escape from! Keep up the great work!! Here's my blind reaction your game starts at 8:45! Thank you!
Woah, thank you so much! Your kind words are very much appreciated. Hopefully you come back and check out the future updates and additions to the game!
Great atmosphere and story. And that phone thing was so cool! I really enjoyed the game :)
Very awesome game! Loved the mechanics! I couldnt find one of the endings though . Overall I really enjoyed it and would love to see it made into a larger game! Great job!
Thank you so much for the kind words and for playing! I'm working hard on expanding the game, hopefully you come back and check out the future updates!
Woah! Quite the spooky vibe! Check out the video below. It is the last video I played.
Very good game! So different, I tried to find and do the other endings but had a hard time but a good time! The game has great details which I was very impressed. Keep up the good work!
we enjoyed this one, its an awesome concept!
Thank you so much! I'm very sorry for the late reply, I've been very busy with the game. I'm glad you liked the game, thank you again!
pretty good puzzle game i liked it
Really loved the phone dynamic in this, and I got all three endings! Great job!
This is brilliant! I like the environmental storytelling and the camera mechanic is done in a new and exciting way. My only gripe is that triggering the ghost is an instant game over, as there doesn't appear to be any way to avoid it. The only way I could get the neutral or bad endings were to know it was there in advance and just set everything up before triggering it.
I've tried to get the good ending, but I can't figure out what to do with the bear, and picking it up is 100% lethal so there's not much room to explore or experiment once you grab it.
Thank you for playing! The ghost isn't an instant game over. You can banish the ghost when she's chasing you. Did you translate the runes? You don't need to but they give you a hint as to what you're supposed to do. You can also, if you're quick on your feet, even finish the last puzzles when she's chasing you but I don't expect anyone to even try that, it's more of a fun fact.
Thank you again for playing, I'm so happy you liked it and I'll keep your feedback and experience in mind for future patches, it was very valuable!
I've tried over a dozen times to get the good ending, and I cannot figure out what to do with the bear and how to deal with the deadly ghost. I translated the runes and spun the globe, but "Bear...Child..." and "She took my teddy" aren't helping me. I guess I am just missing something, but I've tried placing the bear in pretty much every location in the house (oven, shower, crib, rune table, fridge, cage, couch, TV, washing machine) - nothing. And having to figure this out with a ghost that kills you in three seconds is incredibly frustrating because there's no margin for error and no time to experiment.
Any hints on getting the good ending without completely spoiling it?
Sure thing, I'll give you two. One is cryptic and one isn't. Pick which one you want to read.
Cryptic: red smoke rises.
I swear I thought I had tried that, but I guess I wasn't doing it right. But thanks for the hint! I was able to get the final ending, I appreciate the help and listening to my compla-- er, I mean feedback. :)
very nice game
Woah, thank you so much! I'm very happy you liked it and that you want more, I'm working very hard on new content and hopefully you'll give Chapter 2 a try when it releases aswell!
Really enjoyed the use of the phone to change how we problem solved! Seen the mechanic used once before in a game but that was using a mirror so nice modern update on that! Would love to see this extended a bit more, maybe a bit more background to the characters added but overall a fun game! Nice work!
Thank you for the feedback and for playing! Things will be explained in the coming chapters, hopefully you come back to check out Chapter 2 when it releases!
I don't think taking the teddybear was a good idea...
Thank you for playing. Yeah, teddybears can be a sensitive issue for some people, it's a very complex subject matter!
Had a blast playing A Mirage of Home! Such a unique take on the horror genre with the selfie cam. The story line was great as well. Really excited for what you do next morritorgames!
Thank you for playing! I'm super happy you liked the game, hopefully you'll come back when Chapter 2 releases and try it out aswell!
Love the concept of using your phone to see new things! Also the mom is terrifying! Good job! Timestamp in description.
