Barely a year old, Ivan Zanotti’s Imscared – A Pixelated Nightmare has already picked up a huge cult following and will probably be going into the horror game history books (if there’s ever such a thing). I’d tell you why, but that would be spoiling the surprise. This is where I perform a throat-cackingly evil laugh, I think.

What an interesting concept. I find this to be better than 7 Days, which was fun in it's own right.

You don't expect a game like this to scare you too much, I certainly didn't. It still scared me. It is creepy and atmospheric, and I like that in a horror game. The whole idea of a ghost in the wires of your PC is ingenious and I would love to see more like it.

Great Job Ivan.
Ps: How did you do the whole create txt files through GML?

Hello, Ivan. This is a really interesting game, though I hate that white face. Creepy stuff, man. I see it has been made with Game Maker. I use Game Maker as well. You use 8.0, or older or newer versions? My question is, what code or script did you use for the game being able to create files on your computer? That's what really intrigues me.

Imscared - A Pixelated Nightmare is an unforgetable experience unlike any other. Pixels alone may be the only thing that keeps you intact with your sanity as you play through this horrifying and immersive nightmare, because if the game were any chance slightly realistic, I certainly wouldn't be able to play it because of how terrified I would be! The atomosphere is phenomenal and that's extremely hard to say when it comes to games of a more simplistic nature. The scares are perfectly placed and come as unexpected as they can, leaving you guessing when you're going to see the antagonist again. The best part of this is how unforgettable it is, and how that simple and iconic pixelated face will stay lodged in your brain for months at a time, always making you think of that same heart stopping sound that predicts it's arrival. All in all Imscared - A Pixelated Nightmare cannot be missed, and I'll always have a special place for it in my heavily beating heart. I cannot wait for future products from Ivan Zanotti.

The game crashes after I click OK when it says "I made something for you." Fix?

Ivan, a suggestion : let a GJ moderator know that Supertoken6 is spamming your excellent game. The GJ moderator might ban him, because spamming is against the rules of Game Jolt

Thank you.

Oh. Well my dad and I played that game. After I beat it, he opened up a tab ( I didn't know what it was) and saw some things from the game. It was security so we had to restore the computer.
