the dev has a guide up for good and true endings in the devlog!

Thank you :D

Bro, I made an account just to say how much I enjoyed this game. This game was truly a pleasant experience and I genuinely think this is one of the best indie games i've played IMO. 

Now I absolutely adore this game, I also love that it gave me the blue screen of death, still trying to figure out how to fix that, but once I do, I'll play this game again I guess (PLEASE GIVE ME ADVICE IT'S NOT EVEN MY COMPUTER AND NOTHING IS WORKING

Reginald definitely has the voice of Kevan Brighting (The Narrator from The Stanley Parable) and you can't convince me otherwise!

(+1)

Reginald has a voice actor in my other game Blackout Hospital if you'd like to hear him speak !!

This game is so GOOD, like bro, it is all game and fun till the true ending, kind of like get a snack at 3 AM, Btw the true ending also got so intense to the point I literally started walking around my house for no reason. Please try this if your reading this, you won't regret it

This game is a true little gem I got to experience recently! Going to continue it soon as it piqued my curiosity :)

SPOILERS AHEAD !!!














So, I played this after playing "Here For Sweethearts" so I went in very biased towards the Reginald route and him as a person lmao--Here's my reactions after every ending (I placed them in my bookmark of this game bcuz MAN that was soooo good <3)

Bad End: See You In Mars (LOUD SOBBING)
Bad End: Ashes, Ashes, We All Fall... (BEFUVUR# AAAAAAA SOBBING)
Bad End: Not Quite The Cat (WHAT THE HELL REGGIE??? WHAT THE FUCK DUDE I PUT SO MUCH OF YOUR STUNTS UNDER THE RUG AND YOU--REGGIE???? sidenote, that pun is just MWAH like, Cat Got Your Tongue? NO FRICKEN REGGIE DOES HE'S CUTTING IT OFF--)
True Ending: COMPLETE (I DID IT BRO ?? I DONT KNOW HOW OR IF IT REALLY WAS MY CHOICES BUT BROFU#J F# FUCKIN OVIDIUS AND CROWVEN IS LIVING WITH US NOW WHEN I TELL YOU I MELTED--)
(used the walkthrough for this one) Good End: Fairest Weather Friends (REGINALD KIDNAPPED ME--AND THEN HE KILLED HIMSELF BRO?? BRO WTF OMFG NO STOP WHAT I HOW WHY aww Twyla waves at me,,, REGINALD WHAT)
Good End: I'll Be Waiting For Your Mail (BRO ??? REGGIE IS SUCH A SOBS i am still in denial despite three endings proving he's the Butcher existing lmao--But brroooo)
(also used walkthrough) Good End: Not So Far After All (BRO,,,, BRO,,,,, I KNEW I WAS GONNA MELT READING CROWVEN'S GOOD ENDING ROUTE BUT BRO I GOT TO SPEAK TO HIS MA AND PA WHICH ARE MARY'S UNCLE AND AUNT AND THEY VISITED HALINCITY AND EVERYONE IS OKAY--Minus Theo, RIP Theo you can't be saved in any Crowven route </3 BUT BRO I LOVE CROWVEN SO MUCH HE HE HE I I HIM BRO)

As you can see, I had quite the time playing through this game :3 It was a very fun way to spend the last couple of days, cycling through (I did use the skip feature cuz I am an impatient gal,,, (it does take from the emotional impact but </3 we fine we roll with it)) But gah !!! yes, definitely a 10/10 game, gods, absolutely STUNNING to play through. 
This is the only game that made me be in support of literal murderers lmao--In my defence, they are all killers, but like--They're my killers, ya know?

Ofc, Twyla is lowest on the list, but being friends with her results in a WAVE and that was so emotionally rewarding ngl--But yeah, she's definitely the one I'm the most IDGAF about you energy towards. And she does that to me right back in literally all the routes minus her good ending <3 We get a Smidge of it in the True Ending,,, but also she kidnapped me to keep Crowven in line so like,,, mk bestie noo--Not fun, not poggers

Then we have Reginald who I went in VERY biased towards, as previously stated, but still. He learnt Mary appreciated going to funerals and instead of being like "Ah, yes, that's a nice hobby to have. I'm glad you can find the joy in those scenarios." MANS REALLY JUMPED TO "Well if it makes you happy :D" AND BECAME A SERIAL KILLER LMAO??? Pls, he is SO deranged. I got genuinely creeped out in the Reginald Good Ending where we have a Mary POV and he's in our space, it provides a really great look into how utterly CREEPY he seems, getting in our space like that made me get genuine goosebumps. So uncomfortable/pos
That said, one of my favourite frames of the game came from him so--

It just speaks to me on a personal level you know. It just perfectly comes across as "ah shit i fucked upppp" energy and is just a perfect reactional image i love it so much

Now for the boy of the hour and my favourite little murderer guy !! Crowven :D !! I love him so much, I squish him like a marshmallow/pos He made me stim the most and his routes were the only ones to make me cry because FUCK the HUGS GOT ME GOOD--Every single hug from Crowven made my heart go JJEFVU#VEHEG cuz they all told so many stories--The hug from behind when he comes back to the house after Theo has been murdered?? GUTTED ME MY FIRST PLAYTHROUGH--I gasped so loud and was Shooketh. He was so SAD !! And then the hug when they're on the bed and we start talking about mushy shit about getting all better I--I melted,,, And in his Good Ending and the True Ending--He's family, man, I love him and I I I Crowven my favourite frfr

Mary, ofc, the main gal of the hour with the pov we follow, she's so nice to play !! I think given the style, this one falls a little more short of giving her her true Fish Eyes look like from Here For Sweethearts, but I'm glad to have played that one prior to know more accurately what they were referencing :3 !! I felt so betrayed during the fight with Crowven sequence because the options didn't match her dialogue and I was like "BRO WHY ARE YOU GASLIGHTING ME LIKE THAT???" /pos ofc. it's a really nice depiction of a realistic fight and you could hear my heart shattering first playthrough seeing them go at each other like that :}

Shout-out to all our side-folks !! Such as Zapara, Theodore, Aunt & Uncle, Mum & Dad, Ovidius from the True Ending, Bookstore owner, Priest, Twyla's dad/uncle, etc., it's a diverse cast and I was so hyped throughout it :D !!!

I joked about the fact that Mary and Reginald swapped hair lengths for this game vs HFH lol, it was such a silly detail to me

Thank you for making this game :D !! Really enjoyed it, top tier experience truly, your whole game catalogue is truly very fun <3 Thank you for creating :3

welll............i downloaded and deleted that game cuz when i opened the game, it just stays a black screen . i tried opening the game 2 times but it didn't work. sooooo also in crowscare the same thing keeps happening plz fix that bug.



btw your characters looks so cute..

the reason why i started following you: REGINALD AND MARY

@arcadekitten !

I have not had anyone report those bugs so the issue may be with your computer, not on my end. Regardless, there's still playthroughs of Blackout Hospital on youtube you can watch if you'd like to see more of Reginald and Mary's story!

thanks for help!!

i cried over crowven

I did too

same

I had so much fun i got 2 bad ends in a row on my first tries so.... I had to  cheat  don't tell anyone hetehe. And the true end was just so good and well written ,Love the art.

 Ohhh lucky I had to cheat , I got that one and at first I was like omg I may got a good end on my first try... but i spoke to soon :<

This game had been in my library for a while, but when I played and beat it today I wished I had played the day I downloaded. If I could give a rating it would be 5 stars out of 5. One of the main quality features is the very good artwork featured throughout, and the choices felt like they mattered. I wish the best for the developer and I hope they are successful in their future games.

It's one of those games where if I could, I would rate it more than 5 stars. Feeling bored and agitated enough to look for games to spare my time with - I've stumbled upon this very creation, left somewhere in my numerous, untouched collections. Moved by its style, I curiously jumped right into downloads. 

Not only was the gameplay what I was hoping for but it was much more than that - I felt fascinated, kind of like how you feel after watching a movie where you forget about everything else. The characters, the story... It meant a lot for me, someone suffering from multiple mental illnesses and having lost someone recently. The topics of death throughout the story felt real, relatable. They reflected reality of grief and how it affects daily life. As for the characters mentioned earlier - I am in shock of how well written they are... I mean, I quite literally felt like they were real to me and I made actual friends along the way. Maybe it's the nature of the character itself that makes you feel relatable, but I felt like I've lived through the story. 

Well, I won't be writing an entire Bible for this review (at least for now, haha) but if you ask me, I certainly do recommend this game. I'll truly never forget the impact it's made on me and I'll run back in memories to playing this game.

Can't believe there's such quality content available for free. Loved it, also loved the art style, it was super cute!

What's the difference between the "PC" and "Windows" versions? Not sure which I should get but I downloaded the Windows one.

Not much really. To my knowledge PC is just compatible on both Windows and Linux at the same time instead of being just for one--but I could be wrong about that.

But woah... I mean on the topic of Reginald he's just so- mysterious? I mean I feel like the next game arcadekitten might make COULD be about him, but that's just because of all the loose ends they left about him!

Questions like how long was Reggie stalking Mary? Why? And who was he with, in his friend in the old picture frame? What happened to the friend, and why was he obsessed with Mary to the point of murder?! 

Honestly I'm so invested in the game I snatched every ending. And all those eyes and black stuff in his route... did he make a wish or something? Reginald, hello? Did you do black magic or smthing like holy shit????

I can't hate him with how he's equally saved our ass in the true endings, but anyways, great story, amazing visuals, and I loved it! Thanks for the amazing game!

(+1)

I will say that his friend in the picture frame is just a character that belongs to a friend of mine. And we like to draw them together a lot because we're friends! XD So I wouldn't think too deep into it, it's just a friend thing :) Thank you so much though for playing the game, I'm happy you enjoyed it!! <3

OH LOL, WHOOPS. But yeah!!! Thank you for that clear up. I can't see how I wouldn't enjoy this game, and thank you for making it!

arcade kitten, plz cementry mary chapter 2 im just asking it will be alot more fun to see the endings extend

BRO SURE  AM JUST SO SERIOSLY TYRIN' TO UNDERSTAND THOSE THINGS AND THE GUY IN FRAME LOOKED LIKE REGGIE'S GONNA MURDER HIM AFTER THE PICS.......REGGIE LOOKED LIKE CROWVEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I got the "See You On Mars" ending. Oh brother. I'm gonna try to get the other two tomorrow, truly such a fantastic game<3 But Ik there's more to see so I can't fully speak yet oho.

I cried.

IS MARY IN "HFSH"???

Genuinely one of the best and most original things I have read in recent memory. Admittedly, the cutesy art style made me a little skeptical going into things, but your storytelling has an emotional maturity to it that I didn't expect. Plus I've never seen a character quite like Mary in any medium before, visual novels or otherwise. 

Crowven's route was probably my favorite one in terms of story, just for how well it deals with the subject of grief. But Reginald hits all my niche interests in a character, so I'd say he's my favorite part of the game overall. I will say that I think he could've been worked into the main plotline better, and that both of his endings feel pretty abrupt; he almost gets a stronger send-off in Twyla's good ending than in his own route. (Disclaimer: I'm not sure if my true end save file branched off of Crowven's route or Reggie's, so maybe I missed a couple of Reggie scenes that would explain the mysteries around him better? He only appeared once in that playthrough.) Regardless, if you ever made a follow-up game with him, I honestly would love to hear more of his story.

This is so kind of you, thank you so much!! <3 Comments like these really mean a lot to me, more than words can say! :')
I'm actually working on a game right now (Blackout Hospital) that features him as a main character, so his story is definitely continuing! I post about it a bit on my twitter(arcadekitt3n) and instagram(arcadekitten) if you want to follow along on its progress!

No problem, you totally deserve the praise! Glad to be of any service in any way I can. I'm a writing person myself, so I always try to give people usable feedback on their stories.

You know, the first thing I did after finishing this game was to find your Tumblr. I'm actually the person who asked about the control system for Blackout Hospital. Hopefully I can fix my keyboard before the game's release. Nonetheless, I'm looking forward to following its progress. The art alone looks very promising.

P.S. If you ever want a proofreader for your game scripts, let me know. That's kind of my profession ;)

I'm in love with this game but unfortunately I've got all the endings including the true ending and I'm at a lost 😭 I will definately play this masterpiece again in near future  ❤

(+1)

I am obsessed! Still trying to find the real ending tho...

(+1)

this game is absolutely amazing its a work of art i am so glad i decided to dowload it! the story is incredible! though i wish it had a bit more music wise, otherwise its great! 

This game is incredible. I can't recommend it enough!

The question now is: Is blackout hospital a sequel or a prequel

neither, it takes place in a different universe

(+2)

this game has me up until 3am plus why did you have to make crowven so hot

Finally someone who agrees

I ❤️Crowven

amen

Part: 3

This game is keeping me on my toes. I think it's a typical murder/teenage drama one second, and the next it's anything but!! 

It's so good even if I hated on Crowvens friends through almost half of this episode🤣

I thought I could get an ending in this one but I can't seem to find the end! Can't wait to play more!!😁

Keep up the good work and stay safe!! 👍

(Subscribe and Like) - This is optional, Thank you😁

may u make a game with a good end i dont know if u done one yet and im asking in case ok???????????

Cemetery mary and crowscare both have good ends?

(+1)

Yes, there is good endings but you need to select the right answer (I'm assuming you can't get the true ending either) arcadekitten posted a guides on how to get the good and true endings

LINK: Good End/True End Guide

Hope it helped
