my father's long, long legs by michael lutz

A weird tale. Some parts make use of sound, so this game is best played with headphones. One ending.

The sound effects were great and the whole feel from the beginning was creepy as heck!
I sure do like a good horror game.
Left me yelling at the end! :)

This game was so exhilarating. This game grabs you by the throat and squeezes. It holds you there wondering, begging for more. I have so many unanswered questions but for me that is what makes a fantastic game. I want more and I feel like this game could be more. I really enjoyed this story and I hope there are others like this out there.

The story before the end was fantastic - a little slow - but nonetheless, interesting. It hooked the reader in with suspense and unanswered questions that needed to be answered. The flashlight part was very inventive and atmospheric. It really made the reader question their own safety, even if they are in the comfort of a couch. The ending, unfortunately, was very unsatisfying. The images of the legs were very well drawn but not scary. Even using jump-scares would have been better. In conclusion, the story was interesting and eerie, the sound effects (more specifically the digging sounds) were very unnerving, and the ending just didn't do it for me.

This was interesting at first but very disappointing. As far as I could find, there is no actual ending. I think you're just lost in the basement for eternity, as I wandered there for around 2 hours before giving up.
There are also a few glitches sprinkled around here and there. But other than that, this was very well written and made me curious as to why the father was digging but I can't forgive the fact that it ended with being lost in a basement, but even if that's not the ending I still can't forgive something so tedious would be added to a story.
The flashlight effect was really cool at first, but it quickly becomes a chore and gets really annoying.
At first during the story I was curious and excited to find out why the father was digging, but my curiosity turned to frustration when I got lost in the basement, my frustration turned to boredom when I wandering for an hour, and my boredom turned to blind rage when I was wandering for 2 hours. Overall this was well-written but not worth the time.

Great story! Limited interactivity but the game play enhances the story. Very atmospheric and well written. Not for people looking for a choose your adventure but more of a (non) visual novel type game.

This is the best damn narrative horror on this site! If you're even just THINKING about playing it, play it.

This was AWESOME, but I rated 3 because the ending good have been way too much better. I hope you make some kind of an update. The basement environment was very spooky, you should have added one jumpscare there, people would've pooped themselves lol :P Oh and I especially liked the flashlight effect.
