All of the Emika games are so well done. The sound design is spot on and really gets you into the game. This is another winner and so spooky. 9/10

honey!! im home!!

English play through on my gaming channel :)


I really made it out?😱

Sehr gutes Weihnachten Horror Game hier mein Gameplay dazu sehr jumpscare lasstig genau mein Ding

Great game, awesome atmosphere and a few perfectly placed jumpscares. I totally recommend this game!

Un jeu d'horrreur avec énormément de scared jump . J'ai jamais eu autant de sueur sur le corps.

The atmosphere and jumpscares in this game are what did it for me. If you're thinking about playing, or trying to see if it's a bad game, I would most definitely play if you're looking for an actual Horror Game.

Below is my video on the game, check it out :)

Your games never cease to amaze me. The atmosphere is damn near perfect each time and you never disappoint. Amazing job ! 

i made a video on your game if you’re interested :)

Das Spiel war unglaublich gruselig, die jumpscares waren Hammer gut, meine Zuschauer waren total begeistert

I need a BREAK😱

Amazing game I am definitely gonna play your other games 

Heres my walkthrough

Gran juego! Lo sufrí mucho XD

This game got me multiple times lol.

For a short game, this was so good, would love to see more expanded in this setting.  The story is short but works really well.  Here is a video of my playthrough.

Holy shit I loved this game. Just bought your whole backlog to play through

That doll is one creepy model... I love it! Fun game, I like to think that since we wake up with the doll back in the room watching Summer of '58; this is just the very start of our nightmare. 

Had a lot of fun playing through your games, just got Father's Day left; keep up the great work! 

Me gusto mucho! Excelente ambientación. Lo recomiendo!

By far the scariest game i've ever played!! It was so good!

This game gave me heart attacks, it was scary with a lot of tension and kept me always on the edge. I can't say much, but it's for sure the best short horror game I have ever played.

If you want to see me screaming while reviewing the game check it out :)

Emika Games got me with the tension

By far the Scariest Game i've Ever played!  

Hope to see more from you! emika games!

(subscribe if you like my gameplay & if want to see more!)

Great game! Super Creepy Elf!!

I almost had a heart attack playing this game. Several heart attacks actually. Scary!!


this game wont work on my pc for some reason, its asking me to convert the file. any ideas on how to fix this?

I have Windows 11, and I was really disappointed to see that the game only runs on Windows versions 7 - 10 after I bought the game. I hope for it to be able to run on Windows 11 soon or can I get a possible refund?

I play my games on Windows 11, there are no problems. All my games run on all versions of windows, starting from 7-11

I apologise then, but fir some reason when I download it through the itch app, and launch it through the itch app, it takes me to the games files and I can't open it. I hope there is a solution to this issue, I have also un-installed and re-installed but that did nothing. Hope it can be solved 🙂👍

Try to unpack the game file twice.


when I downloaded the game there was no zip file or any file to unpack. The download for me only had 2 items, neither of them was the game (I don't think) there was a notepad document and the other was something that when opened I had to choose an app to open it like 'word' or 'adobe' if you would like I can send you some screenshots in discord, my username is Bread_836#3010

Write me an email hawkeys1991@gmail.com

I don't use discord.

same thing here, did you manage to sort it???

Yes, log into your itch account through a Web browser not the app. Then download the game from there and it should be a zip file, once downloaded extract it to your desktop and then open the extracted file with winRAR. It's a bit of a process but it works, I have been chatting with the game developer about it and we managed to solve it. Hope this helps :) 👍 

i did all what you said and the file is unsupported :( 

Im sorry to hear that :( im not sure what i can do to help, maybe try reaching out to the developer, hope it can get fixed 🙏

I came to earth for games like this. Great experience that I bought your catalog on the other platform even after purchase on here. Cheers for the greatness! Hope to be playing many more creations from you.

says corrupted file when downloaded multiple times ive tried 

It is necessary to unzip the file twice.


Another enjoyable entry from Emika Games!

aside from it not being English first language (not a problem) it was a really well made game! Great jumpscares as you can see in my thumbnail 🙂

fantastic game! Scared the absolute poop out of me. Great job 👍🏾

Once again you have scared me at every turn Emika! Fantastic job! 

Me a encantado mucho este nuevo corto de terror , ambientado en navidad , se nota mucho que lo hacen con ganas sus proyectos . 

Excelente juego de terror
