Watch it

you have no idea how excited I was to play this game thank you


Great game! I love the graphics. 


I had a fun time playing this game. The graphics look stunning and the voice acting is great as well!! If it was a full game, I would've bought it for sure!!


I'm a long time player of the RE Series, so this was really enjoyable! The project was a success in transferring the feeling of Dimitrescu's castle into 2D-HD format. The sprites could use a bit more work, but are in the right direction. Also, the sound volume in the inventory and when picking up items could use a bit more balancing (was a bit loud even after adjusting in the menu). Other than that this was great! Amazing potential, can't wait for future projects! ~ Here's my play through ^^

The game was really good. Great job, even though it was short, it's very good. Keep it up.

Great game. Even though its a bit short, it shows very good game design, the pixel art is amazing. All in all very good game, hope to see some more.

Hey thanks! This game was just a pathfinder project, I will be using lessons learned from this project in a full-length 2.5D original title (will also be horror)!


My girlfriend gave this a try-- and she enjoyed it!

Wow, brother, this game is great. I hope you can develop more new games

Thanks so much! Feel free to follow my Itch and YouTube for future updates on new games!


the game is really good, the level design is great, the pixel art is very beautiful too, I loved the game, I finished it in 10 minutes, it takes a while to load but that's just the defect. keep it up and you'll get far, congratulations on the game :D

Thank you so much for saying that! I’m so glad you enjoyed the game! I’m planning on making more 2.5D titles in the future, so feel free to follow me here and on Youtube (trailer above)


Taking advantage of the fact that the game was produced by you and that it does not have its own page here on itch.io, I would like to congratulate you for this game. It has good potential.

Thanks so much for trying it out! You didn’t have to! As this doesn’t have a dedicated page, feel free to link my YouTube channel and my itch.io page :)

For being a resident evil fan game, this was not bad. Made a video on it.


Thanks for playing!


For a RE8 fangame, this is a very interesting job. I liked the interior of the castle, the lighting, the exploration, but I think the character sprites could be better worked out, to be something similar to the HD-2D style of some Square Enix games. Anyway, I can't wait for the news. Congratulations man.

Thanks so much for playing and for your feedback, I really appreciate it!
