I really loved this demo! The atmosphere & story make it a very engaging experience. Love the style, the game has a lot of charm! The only thing that I think could be improved upon is the pc controls (I don't have a controller). I think it would be easier to control with wasd instead of the arrow keys. I can't wait to see the finished product & I'm excited to see where the story goes! Great job & best of luck with the rest of your project!

(+2)

Thank you!
And yes, these controls will be possible when I updated the input/keybindings system.
I can't say exactly when this update comes but it will surely be there when the full game is finished : )

(+1)

Thank you, very cool! Keep up the good work! :)

(+1)

I've enjoyed the demo. Great game. The only thing which I think is bad is the aiming. It doesn't make the playing more challenging, only more frustrating. Please add auto-aim if you can.

(+2)

Thanks and auto-aim will be a feature in the full game.

(+5)

REALLY liked this demo. It's honestly so well done compared to your typical itchio demo and the characters already have so much personality. Definitely will be checking out the full game!


(+2)

Nice video! You finished it pretty quickly! Well done! : )
If everything goes as planned, this game will release in May 2021.

Download and play

Aiming is difficult

At least you could kill the big guy : p not a lot of people can do that.

(+1)

here is my run i went all swimsuit mode xd i did enjoy the puzzle whit the key hand 

(+1)

Great demo!! game inspired by Resident Evil but doll not zombie 

(+1)

Hey! Great work on the demo. The RE and SH vibes given from this game should give any long time fan of those classic games should really give this a try. I would say once they tried, they will want more! I did a playthrough of the demo and commentated/reviewed the demo as well. But as a hobbyist game dev, I tip my hat to you! 

Thanks for the video and review! : )

(+1)

Hi there, I included your game in my video. I really enjoyed it, brought me back in time and reminded me of games like Silen Hill, Resident Evil and Obscure. Quite an interesting take you made there.

Thanks! Fun video! And I had to skip a part of Flesh Birds because I want to play it for myself XD

(+1)

That is okay glad you liked it though.

Is it possible to have an Android version of this game?

sorry, I'm not releasing for mobile. But there will be console releases like Nintendo Switch

(1 edit) (+1)

will this be out for consoles like Xbox and ps4 ? I would totally pay for it man this game got me hyped! , also she kinda reminds me of Jill Valentine when she was in the mansion. awesome game looking forward to the full release version :) keep it up 👍

Edit: oh yeah also um you got a Twitter or an instagram ? 

This will indeed come to consoles. Since I hit that stretch goal on Kickstarter : )

Huge fan of psx looking game when they're well done. And this game is not only well done, IMO this is the best one in the community. Got the demo a few days ago and I was only able to play it yesterday, what a great game! Kudos for making the game so you're alble to play with Alisa in underwear lol. 

Seriously tho, I can't wait for the full release! Good luck man, your work inspires me!

(+1)

Hehe : D Thank you very much!
(you probably noticed it) every type of clothing has different attributes. Walking around in underwear has a different function. But this will be more useful in the full game : )

(+1)

I will say this and it's for real. That's one of the most awesome indie games that I ever played. This game is, no doubt, an ode to the great Survival Horror titles from the PS1 era, at same time that this game proposes an interesting plot. The protagonist is very charismatic, in my opinion, and the CGI cutscenes is very cool. That's a very enjoying demo, played and uploaded on my channel. Congrats for your work and I can't wait for the full game.

Thanks! : D
I'm happy that you liked it so much!

(+2)

This game looks fantastic. Love the atmosphere and style. Reminds me so much of "American Mcgee's Alice".  I'm not well suited to tank-controls but I can tell you put alot of love into this. Very eager to see more in the future. Hope you succeed!

(+1)

Thanks! : D
Full game will have a different control type : ) for the people that are not into tank controls

(+1)

That's a bit of a relief. I know they're a style but I just get frustrated. This game you have is beautiful and I can't wait to see what's next!

(+1)

Thank you Casper Croes... I did not see this game before until now and I love RE and PS style game... Yes I compare to RE but don't feel offended please. I will definitely buy this game when release. Looking forward for full game and great job! 

For anyone who love PS1 style and some Resident Evil vibes or just killing dolls ;) You must try for yourself or just watch video! Will do some challenges and maybe speedrun when full game comes out. Enjoy!

(1 edit) (+1)

one of my biggest inspirations was the classic RE so it's not offending XD haha. and that first doll encounter cutscene is a small joke for the RE fans out there : )
I found 3 bugs because of watching your video. very minor bugs also that glitch in the inventory menu when you were in the kitchen.
It was a really nice video!
And I was quite amazed how quickly you understood things XD (puzzles, mechanics, ...)
Also you can hold 2 weapons and switch between them.

(+1)

Yeah I learned later you can keep 2 weapons... that slot is for 2nd weapon...I though this slot is maybe for other gear later... yeah did many puzzles on ps1 in past so skill still left hah :)  I only notice glitch for inventory but glad I helped find more. Thanks for comment and waiting for full game :)

(+1)

 Hey guys ! I made a full playthrough of the game, please check it out, leave a like, a comment and subscribe too ! I hope this game is continued and comes with a full version soon. 

thanks for the video! I saw that the muzzle flash isn't working in this version. seems like a bug. So I'm going to fix this asap : )

(+1)

happy to hear that brother ! I am glad you enjoyed my video too, i am looking forward to seeing the full game.

(+1)

Really cool throwback to the early Resident Evil PS1 games with a hunch of Clock Tower and maybe some Parasite Eve too. Recommended !

(+1)

This is really good stuff. Love the voice acting! I cannot wait for this.

Hi

When playing the Linux version, after beating the demo, it tries to find the exe file for some reason and it ends up with an exception because, well, there is no exe. Also, I wanna know if you added the new input mapping that you talked about to the 1.4 version, I am asking it because the directions is still locked, you can't map it.

Bug that happened on Linux after beating the game.

(+1)

Hi,
There is indeed only the arrow buttons for the keyboard that you can use. I had to replace the whole button mapping system to make WASD work. And I didn't have time enough.
And yea this bug, I never thought about it actually. If I don't fix it now, It'll be fixed when the full game releases.

(+1)

Is it possible to still back/support this game at this point? I see the Kickstarter is over already. Just found this and would love to get on the backer/premium track asap. :D

ahh sorry I actually already did a late backers campaign. and because I need to start producing the rewards from now so I can't give any rewards anymore.
But wishlisting on Steam is what you can do : )

(+1)

Thanks for the information. I wish listed it on Steam already and will definitely be keeping an eye out for more info and a full release. Love what I've seen so far! <3

Thank you! ^^

(+2)

You've absolutely nailed the uncanny vibe of early CG renders. It's spot on. Great game so far man.

Thank you! ^^

(+1)

Amazing game play experience! Looking forward for full release

Thanks! : )

(+1)

This game is amazing, the feel is just great.  Can't wait for the full release.

I noticed that the doors that say "It's locked from the other side" don't show as locked doors on the map. Is that intentional? If not, it would be nice if they showed as locked.

oh really? that might be a bug. I think there is one door that is locked and doesn't show on the map. somewhere in the middle of the long staircase.
I will put out a new update around next month or so. So I will investigate this issue somewhere this week. Thanks for letting me know! : )
And I'm glad you liked it! ^^

Hoping that auto-aim is added.

Also hope that better support for the sticks is implemented.  I tried to assign the movement to the left thumbstick, but it didn't work.  Same for trigger buttons.

Despite those couple of problems, I'm very hopeful for the future of this game!

(+1)

Auto-aim is a feature for the full game.
I'm planning to redo the whole button mapping so that it'll be easier to set up your buttons with more freedom.
And will also implement a different control type other then Classic Tank Controls.
But since I'm short on time for the backers demo to be finished I will have to delay all these features to a later update or until the full version.

Got completely stuck in the store. I pressed every button on my keyboard and nothing...

(+1)

you played the latest version? there was an issue like that in the previous version but it should have been resolved a couple of months ago.
did you do a mouse click? there is a currently bug that clicking with the mouse can lock up any type of menu...
Sorry for the inconvenience. x.x

yep, the mouse click

(+1)

aaah.. good to know it's not a new issue. Will fix this problem in a future update : )

(+1)

You absolutely nailed the pre rendered environments, and the whole 90's, PS1 feel here, massive well done!

I was wondering what software you used to make this game? You've definitely achieved some of the better results compared to other PS1 throwback games.

Thank you very much! ^^
I used Blender for all the 3d elements and Unity for as game engine : )

(+2)

absolutely amazing, i loved every second of it! so much so that i immediately replayed it so i could try to buy everything and kill the big guy, it took me a couple tries lol. the controls are very solid, manual aiming is tough tho since im so use to the auto aim in re, i am using a ps4 controller and was able to easily fix any issues i had. overall they are really good. however, i did run into a few softlocks when finishing the key puzzle and starting the door puzzle. i didnt mind it tho because it meant i got a chance to replay it. overall this game is exactly what ive been looking for, it reminds me so much of alice and alice madness returns, perfectly blended with the RE gameplay. cant wait until this game is finished, i will definitely be supporting it as much as i can!

I'm glad you liked it and had a good time, despite a couple of bugs you ran into : )

I like this but the control configuration is broken. wont let set the keys i want them to be for certain controls.

(1 edit)

the only thing you can not change for now are the arrow keys.
But I'm going to redo the buttons mapping some time soon. After I'm done with the backers demo.

Developer to developer, giving 1/5 rating to other projects that a clearly not pure garbage can burn your name and face.

Hi man, i encountered a bug:

When you finish the movin parts puzzle and take the key out, the menu for "move the key" or "move the pieces" pops in, if you click move the pieces, the game softlocks (you get stuck moving the pieces of the puzzle)


Also, a suggestion:

For what can we see in this demo, there will be a lot of stair climbing in this game, so can you change the stair climbing animation for free movement in stairs? something like classic RE 3

Yea, that puzzle still got some bugs, I need to check it again some time.
I'll put another update out when I got the new demo done.
And changing the stairs to free stairs is possible but this will change the whole gameplay and I might have to make a couple of new animations for this since there is no IK like in newer games that checks where the feet of the character are to put it correctly on the ground.
Also the monsters will be able to climb the stairs so then they also need new animations.
so I'm not going to change to free stairs movement. it'll take a lot of time and headache and time and resources are short, this game has to be done by May.
The only thing I could do is change the animation to take 2 steps at a time so she moves at double the speed of the stairs walk. And basically, there are not so much stairs in other zones so it's just the main area that has lots of stairs : p
Will see what happens in the full game.

(+1)

I didn't even think of all the new animations that will be required for free stair movement.


The 2 steps at a time while walking the stairs sounds like a good solution tho.


Thanks for the fast reply.

Yea the free stairs walk would be something to consider in a possible Alisa 2 or something XD
And no problem : )

Mine is broken I cannot play it at all. I cannot access the button configuration when I try to go down It will not allow me and it exits out of settings on the main menu and in the game which means I cannot assign controls on my keyboard or to a controller at all. Also, I cannot raise my weapon at all or run I can only walk and interact with things since my controls are messed up. I have tried the f1 and f2 fix, and deleting and re-downloading the demo, and the issue persists. I seem to be the only one with this issue.

press F1 and F2 at the same time a couple of times or hold it for 2 seconds. Then press alt+f4. then start the game again and try again.
What controller are you using? Playstation 3 and 4 controllers are known to have issues.

Just tried it still does not work, I cannot access any of the settings, move down in menus(Automatically exits me out), do anything but resume the game when paused or perform any actions when playing the game, sadly.  :( I'm using a PS4 controller. 

yea, ps4 controller has issues.
just start the game, when you see the title screen (with new game / settings / quit) your press here f1 + f2, then press alt + f4. and start the game again. normally everything should be back to keyboard controls

(1 edit)

Here is the thing. I have tried that many many times. alt+f4 just exits me out of the game, and I can't even exit the game from the pause menu as I cannot move down the menu even with the keyboard as it kicks me out of the pause menu when I press down (and out of any menu). By this point, the game is broken for me. And no amount of "F" commands or re-downloading will fix it. I think I'll just wait until the official release to play it so, I won't have any issues. I have very high hopes for your game and I know it is going to be good. 

Any plans for functional keyboard controls in the final version? I don't own a controller and tried to play the demo, but a lot of basic things just didn't function, and I couldn't find any settings to fix it. The game looks great, so I'm hoping I'll be able to actually play it when it comes out.

so what kind of button mapping would you like to have?
I'm going to redo the key config settings some day soon so I need to keep people's preferences in mind.
Please give me your desired button mapping and I'll take notes on it : )

(+1)

I would recommend you to allow users to map the directions with any key they want. I personally like to use wsad, but other people might prefer a different mapping.

yea, I heard another person say this too.
Will surely be possible when I redo the button mapping code. But that will be for the full version and maybe a future update of the demo when I got it all done.

(+1)

Hey, pretty neat game

Just wanted to give some feedback i guess, the controller settings don't seem to work well, i couldn't move all the pieces in the key puzzle so i had to do it with the keyboard.

Also you seem to run and shoot and action button with both X and Square for some reason (was using dualshock 4).

Other than than i don't know if this is controller related too, but would be nice if she didn't move while you turn when you're standing still.

Anyway loved the demo, left me wanting more!

thanks for the feedback. that is indeed a dualshock 4 bug that I haven't been able to fix yet.
When you bind the direction/axis, it quickly applies something weird. So you have to spam the correct button on the controller until it gives the correct one.
Will probably fix this when the game is nearing it's final version.

(+1)

this game is so cool!! i absolutely love the puzzles and the old school vibe of it. i cant wait for the full game!! also,, the main girl (alisa?) is very pretty... anyway i love it lol, simply delicious *cheffs kiss*

Thanks! : D I'm glad you liked it!

Xbox pad does not work, keyboard controls are terrible and i never figured out how to get out of the help menu.

are you on windows or a different OS, other OS's might have trouble recognising controllers.
if you are on windows, try the button config menu, if your controller doesn't do anything when you try to bind your keys then it's probably your controller driver that isn't properly installed.
and since you say that the keyboard controls are terrible, that means that you probably just skipped the button settings and went with default keys which are very common keys for 90s pc games.

(-3)

I'm on Windows 10, the game registers the control to skip the intros but does nothing else after that. I havn't touch the control map and when one out of a hundred game doesn't work i hardly think it's my setups fault ;)

The keyboard controls are terrible in the sense that those controls are terrible by themselves and using a keyboard just makes it worst regardless of the key mapping.

That pseudo-nostalgia for the 1995/2001 era has to stop. Games from that era were terrible. They had good ideas, but terribly badly executed because of the limitations of the hardware. Now he have good hardware, devs should take the good of those games and remove the bad, badly bad such as tank controls and aim, and skip the low polly bullshit. The nostalgia for the SNES era if perfectly understandable, 2d graphics were at their best and indie developers have taken advantage of it by using beautyfull pixel art, and taken what we liked from the gameplay of those games while removing the bad parts such as passwords, lives, etc. There should be no nostalgia for the late 90's, the 3d was prehistoric and there were a lot of gameplay issues. I don't see any reason why we have to suffer through that again.

(+1)

so, it is your button settings. But if you don't like these games, just don't bother playing it.
Many people love these type of games for many reasons. There are also crappy ps1 style games out there but that's a different topic.
1. AAA games now-a-days are a terrible business, they look good but the content is mostly crap or incomplete which was almost never the case in the 90s and early 2000s. People loved that era just because of that. Games were good and the graphics were evolving.
2. if the game's image is vague, not all too sharp, your imagination fills up what it can not see, this creates a way better experience. Same with pixel-art. Same with a black-white movie where after a while you might start to see colors just because you can imagine the colors (you don't literally see it).
3. This game follows all the limitations as correctly as possible an even runs on the cheapest and oldest shit PC on the market just because of that. Probably one of the only 3D games that will be possible to play on anything in the year 2020-2021 and beyond.

But as I said, don't bother playing these games if you don't like it.

(-3)

I don't know if you actually grew up at that time because there were was even more crap than today. Making games didn't cost that much so pretty much anystudio could publish one and since there was no Internet, we used to pay a lot of money for shitty games. And there was no diffrence between cheap and AAA games, they had the same price tag.

Now, you don't like most of today's AAA games, that a choice altough a lot of them are pretty good, does that mean that you have to make a game shitty for it to be god? Or isn't it that using PS1 graphics as an identity is just convenient for hiding that you are bad at 3d modeling?

(+2)

I think you are lacking knowledge. So this is where this conversation ends.
Good luck out there kid.

(-3)

can you please do something about the voice acting its still just awefull why you team doesnt search a real freelancer voice actor? 

no, because I'm a solo gamedev and this is my vision. there is an option to turn it off it you don't like it.

(+1)

Two questions:

1) Will there be a new game plus feature where you keep everything you brought from the merchant?  It could be fun for messing around.

2) Will there be a melee weapon?  I feel like having one would help in conserving ammo.

yes and yes.
You can read everything about the full game here : )
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/caspercroes/alisa-game

Thank you for the swift response that I didn't notice until today(sorry).  Honestly, this game sounds right up the alley of a let's player I know of called Roahmmythril, who got into horror games through the original Resident Evil.

no problem : )
Does he play indie games? I Checked his YT channel, but I see a lot of real retro games.

I finally could test it. Is kinda RE and I liked it! Very fun, will wait for the final release! But the keyboard is a bit problematic, some key compbinations lead you out of the game...

that's probably a Mac issue.. will look further into it and bring an update to the next demo and full version. You can always rebind your buttons in the settings : )

(+1)

I noticed that the new Mac version wasn't MacOS Catalina compatible. What's the full Mac compatibility specs? 

Also, thank you for bringing this back to Macs :)

(+1)

I did some research. Is Catalina the last MacOS version? I read about a lot of trouble running Unity games on Catalina but the rest rest of the MacOS versions seem to have no trouble. I guess it's just Apple changing their system too much after every update.
The only thing I can do is making a different version of Alisa in a higher Unity version which might get a fix for Catalina. Because the Unity version I'm using will not get that fix.

Building for Mac is such a disaster -_-

(+2)

I just tested here and won't run in Catalina. They have perform a huge step from Mojave to Catalina... and fall with the face on the floor! They have dropped all 32 bits apps and etc, it's full 64 bits now. I am with Catalina since the beginning (usually I don't upgrade so soon) and each upgrade fix some issues and bring new flaws, you know, like Windows. However, as I can see troughs my researches and tests, soon not even Linux will support 32 bits and other old technologies, it's a matter of time, so I strongly advice you to take a deep breath and upgrade your Unity or whatever you need to support Catalina (it's not about macOS only). Unless some foundation decided to handle 32 bit support and old techs at OS level, we got no choice, is beyond our capabilities.

Thought building for Mac is hard? Don't try to iOS...

(+2)

yea I read. I also read a topic on the unity forum that some builds doesn't work on cataline even with the newest unity version. this conversation was from 1 year ago so I guess it'll be fixed now and will be making an update for Alisa Mac version soon. probably this weekend or so : )

(1 edit)

Thank you so much for putting in the work to make it playable for Mac users. Though I am a heavy Windows user, recently I've been transitioning into also using Mac for work and just having that extra option to play on another platform really makes me happy.

So cheers and thank you. Also, if you can't bring it over to Catalina, I don't mind playing it on Mojave. Not a huge deal, I just wanted to know what the compatibility specs were.

no problem : )
And yea, going to update the game for Catalina soon. So it might work on everything. I saw that games like "A Short Hike" made 2 versions for Mac. Just Mac and Mac Catalina. So yea, that's how weird the Catalina update is I guess XD

(+2)

This Demo was amazing. I played it and made a video of it on YouTube and thoughtout I am constantly expressing how cool this game is. I will be funding the Kickstarter soon that's for sure. 10/10 bloody brilliant!

(+1)

Thanks! : D

(+1)

This is so amazing. I can't wait for the full game. Keep on the spirit!
