Some people may experience seizures when exposed to flashes of light and flashing images that appear in a video game. People who have not previously experienced such attacks may not be aware of their illness. A reasonable restriction of the game audience is recommended.


IMPORTANT NOTE: The player assumes the role of the main character, relying on their intuition. The main focus of the game is on exploring the environment in a closed space, which will change after interacting with it. It is important to carefully study the details of the game. The tension will increase over time, creating the effect of insanity. The plot is revealed not linearly, almost without notes in the game world.


Environment.

The game takes place in a house where previously there were terrible events. You have to repeatedly wander through the same corridor, in order to uncover the causes of insanity and understand who you are. Be patient, and the house will open previously locked doors and show you frightening memories of the past. The narrative of the story is transmitted through the environment. Each item tells a story, relying on your imagination. Only the player decides to reveal the idea of the game and be in the center of events, escape or pass it as a room of fear.

Liked this game a lot, also really liked the demo version (which I gave 5/5.) I liked the new areas of the house and the increased level of story. I also liked the audio effects, particularly the reversed speech. That's always a good creepy effect. I thought that the new version should have had fewer visual effects (flashing lights, shaky camera, etc.) These effects can be scary at first but they get annoying over time. Less is more.

A bug: The dresser with the lamp and telephone was supposed to have 2 photos but when I played there was only one. I had to watch a walkthrough to get through all the pictures because not all of them rendered for some reason.

Because of the exhausting flashing (I don't have seizures I just got really tired of the shaking) and the bug I'd have to say 3-3.5/5

Emilia, Kristina, & Alexandr; EMIKA! hahaha I love it! And I also loved and very much enjoyed the full release of Locked Up as well! The eerie and ominous atmosphere is nerve-wrecking, and you can feel that throughout all the diff environments you explore while progressing. The SFX you trigger act as delicious sound bytes for the horror experience, but at the same time felt over-used by the time I was snapping photos with the camera. Still a great development! I'm def following so I can be notified of the next EMIKA project!

Fantastic work!

played this its really great

This Game ... extremely cruelty and creepy. But it was a pleasure for me to play it.


Greetings from Germany.

This game was DEFINITELY SPOOKY!!! I Hope my LP did this game justice!!!

I didn't like the way I painted the Game with my previous review, so I'm going to re-write it.

This is a well crafted Horror Game with tons of suspenseful moments. It will keep You on edge for most part, and make You scream like a grown-up baby. I like the idea behind some puzzles, like unlocking a drawer by looking at a photo of the drawer, it's original and refreshing, and makes the game less "keyfind simulator". The game feels inspired by the almighty PT, but not in a boring PT Clone way. Although there's moments when You get stuck and don't know what to do, cus the levels has "triggers" that You have to activate, and that's the Games weakness imo. But overall a very pleasant experience. Strongly recommended!

Thank you for playing.  I hope you had a good time in the game.  The concept of the game is that you need to slowly go through the game and study the changes and observe the story.

it run's good with my dual core processor 2*3.2 Ghz / 32 GB Ram / RX580 8 GB vram ;) it looks pretty dope and the atmosphere is so amazing ;) i feel it and i want to buy so fast i can the full version ;) i love it

Finally had the courage to finish it and get the ending great game

i really enjoyed this demo

the vibe was really creeping me out and keeping me on the edge of my seat the whole time

this is what i expect from phycological horror games

intense till the end

i have purchased the full game , looking forward to see what is really going on in this house

thank you for creating this game and ill give my full review aswel on steam 

here is my playthrough of the demo : just amazing

Played the game all the way through. its deeply disturbing


Thank you for playing! I'm glad you liked the game! I would be grateful for an objective review in steam!

**FULL GAME**

You find yourself LOCKED UP inside a house of legitimate horrors. Reality changes around every corner. The terror that lies within will crawl under your skin. Not for the faint of heart. Can you escape this cult of terror?

Thank you for playing! I'm glad you liked the game!

Played the full game from Steam on my Youtube channel and loved every minute of it, one of the scariest games I have played in a long time! Great Job! I look forward to seeing your future projects!

Also, here's Part 2 to my full playthrough! :D 

Thank you for playing! I'm glad you liked the game!

Just got this from steam can't wait to get on it!

Thanks! I will be happy to see your progress through the game.

Please make more games like this for us! :)

Thank you for playing! I'm glad you liked the game!

Finishing the game tonight, looking forward to it!

any Recent info on when controller support will be available? As I’m dying to play this game but I don’t play keyboard and mouse 

Unfortunately, I wasn't planning on making a controller any time soon, but you're not the first one to ask for it, I'm starting to think about it.

How much more is in the release compared to the demo? Is it twice as much? Curious as I played the demo to the videotape area and am hoping there’s much more and not mostly a replay of the demo, plus a little bit added. Can you give a little detail to help gain a purchase?

The full version includes more than the demo version. The complete passage takes about 1 hour 30 minutes

Great, thank you so much for the quick reply!  I'll be getting it asap and, most likely, playing through it tomorrow.  I loved the demo.  Scared me to death. Thanks again!!

Welcome!))

I got it today and played it all the way from start to finish. Took me 2.5 hours and it was awesome! The atmosphere, sounds, amount of scares. I had to take a scare break to recoup once, haha. Thank you for this game. You did an amazing job. I cannot wait for your next game or more content. 😃

I am very glad that you liked the game! Thank you for your support! 


Not everyone unfortunately likes the game so much and mostly everyone has mixed reviews. so I hope that I will gather my courage and start making a new game!

I played the whole game through! THIS GAME WAS AMAZING! I would appreciate if y'all checked it out. THANKS!

wow this game right here!! is crazy and its just a demo so imagine the full game! It was intense the whole playthrough and I was ready to just get scared lol


super fun game to play, really great atmosphere throughout :)

This is a very well made game! loved the atmosphere and tension. it's amazing what can be done in such a small area. This is part of a 3 scary games episode. Gameplay starts at 18:13

Pros and cons are down below) Check out my vid here if you want to:

Advantages:
1. The scares are well thought and the pacing of the game is perfect. The sense of dread and tension is created from the very first moments and stays with you through the whole adventure. I had to take breaks playing it because I was so scared and at the edge. I love it!
2. The sounds are awesome! Sound design is very important for a horror experience and I think the developers have nailed it!
3. The graphics are top hole! The potential of Unreal Engine is well used. I am so content and impressed by the result!

Disadvantages:
1. Some particular sounds seem very familiar with other horror games. Especially for jumpscares. The developers used them quite good, but it would be nice to hear something different especially for me because I play and review lots of horror games.
2. I would very much like seeing actually working mirrors. It's nice that they reflect flashlight and I know that it is so difficult to create a reflection. But that would be a nice addition due to the fact that the mirror is seen throughout the whole game.
3. This point is the most important one! Sometimes it is very difficult to know where you need to focus and what to touch. There were sections in which I was lost for good 20 minutes before realising that I was just inaccurate with my peepers peeping. Though, this game is much simpler than original P.T. in regards to this point.

Overall:
I am having a blast playing this game! So scary and so awesome! I enjoy every second of the experience and I recommend everyone buying this game if you want get spooked a good bit.

Hope my feedback was useful!

Hi! Thank you for playing! I'm glad you liked the game. According to Your comments. 1-sound in the game, I agree it is free, I worked on the game alone and my budget was very limited. 2-Mirrors reflect, but the main character does not have a body. The absence of the body is planned according to the plot. 3-a game of mindfulness, I'll simplify the puzzles a little in the next update.

Just finished it! The second part of the puzzles (with photos) is perfect! I think it was confusing to me just at the start) The game is very scary and powerful! I will ink the video when I edit it, so you can see me scream in horror being scared by your spooks) If you want to, of course)

(+1)

I will definitely look! I like to watch my game being played)))

Just finished editing

That was so amazing and horrifying! Keep up the great job! Can't wait to see your next projects

Well No offense but I don't like the game... I LOVE IT. the game was really well made and I can tell that there was a LOT of time and effort spent in making it and I respect that. Great Job honestly.

Thanks for giving me a heart attack like 5 times BTW 😂

Nothing to worry about! Thank you for playing. I knew it would be an Amateur game.

(1 edit)

No you didn't get what I meant I was joking when I said I didn't like it I really loved the game and I meant that I loved it anyway you really know how to make a scary game I'll give you that.

I was scared the whole time especially when someone blew out my lighter that was really scary Good Job!

sorry, I didn't mean to make you think that your game isn't good it is really good this ain't no Amateur game this is some high level stuff.

Played through the full version and it did not disappoint! Thanks for the game. Hope to see more from Emika Games!

Thank you very much! I will try to do better!

I've done a small review of sorts on my Facebook page of this.  Absolutely love the atmosphere you've created - everything from the visuals to the creepy score and the weird and spooky sound effects.  Brilliant - well done and please keep on developing because you've got a talent!

Also, I've just bought the full game as I loved the demo so much!  You've really created a creepy and tense environment with gorgeous visuals and amazing sounds.

Thank you very much! I'm glad you liked it! I'm trying for you!

Некоторое время назад, мы проходили демку этой игры... на тот момент, мне очень понравилось, как в двух комнатах и одном коридоре, автор смог разместить получасовую демоверсию проекта, и несколько раз дико перепугать меня и зрителей! На данный момент игра вышла в Steam, и Разработчик любезно предоставил ключ для обзора и прохождения, чем мы с Вами и займёмся. Игра оправдала мои ожидания, сделано все добротно, атмосферно и страшно! Подробный отчёт я предоставлю в стиме, разумеется после прохождения игры на канале. И так - "Взаперти". Серия первая. Погнали!

Спасибо огромное!))

I haven't played, but it's definitely a good game

I advise you to play!

full version game love the way it look wish u can turn off camera effect great job on the game

Without the VHS effect, I think the atmosphere would have gotten worse.

I was so stoked when I saw you released the full game on Steam this morning!  Hope it's ok I post my gameplay here, good job on the game guys!  It's a little bit confusing at times but overall really enjoyed my experience.

Thank you very much! I will be grateful for feedback in the steam.

Will do!

Thank you very much! 

Started playing the full version! Here is Part 1 of my playthrough! Its so good!

Thank you very much! I will be grateful for feedback in the steam.

hi ! the game crashes at the start. what can i do to fix it ? its impossible for me to play ! thks

Do you have problems with the demo or release version? Yesterday there was a problem with the launch of the game for everyone, perhaps this is the problem. Write your system requirements

The game crashes when i put the tv on. So I started again without touching the tv, and later the monster appeared in front of the tv, and the game crashed again.

Here's my computer details.

Processor
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3610QM CPU @ 2.30GHz

Video Card
Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000 

Video Card #2
NVIDIA GeForce GT 635M

RAM
6.0 GB

Operating System
Windows 8.1

(1 edit)

Most likely the problem is due to the video card. Try reducing the render scale. in the graphics settings

Ok il will try. Thanks !

congrats on making it to steam!

Thank you very much for your support!

no problem man loved the demo of this!

Hello, i bought the game im downloading it and im very anxious to play it, i enjoyed the demo so much now finally i can enjoy the full game :D

(+1)

Thank you very much for your support!

(Your game is the first in this video)
Now this was VERY creepy indeed.

While I got a little stuck on progression sometimes since I find the "alternative use with right click" mechanic a bit obtuse and easy to forget about (though I recognize this may be more of an engine thing than your decision) and I automatically check out a little when babies get involved in horror due to sheer overuse, everything worked so well I got sucked in anyway. The whole thing is such an oppressive, creepy experience with just enough context clues to clue you on some dark stuff that it gets rather scary rather fast. Excellent work. Would love to see more.

Thank you very much for your support!

This demo was awesome!! 

Thank you very much for your support!

great game :D

Thank you very much for your support!
