"Ryo, we've discussed this before, haven't we? You don't have a mom. I made you from straw, magic, and a lock of my hair."


Crowscare is a short horror game, RPG game, and a love letter to the autumn season.

The game follows a young boy named Ryo, excited for the upcoming Harvest Festival in his hometown. Wouldn't you know? This is going to be his first one! He was never able to go to one before, as it always started past his curfew...but soon he'll see why he was never allowed out at night.

The game takes about 1-1 Β½ hours to complete. There are two bad endings, and one good/true ending.

This game is so scary and sad but I love it

This probably will never be answered, but by any chance do you have a free, accessible discord server? I’d love to create fanart and interact with the Crowscare community. 😁

P.S if not, may I start one? I’m such a huge fan of the game πŸ˜…

I refuse to make any official discord servers, but there are various fanmade discord servers centered around all my games. I don't touch any of them though so I can't vouch for the communities there.

Fair enough haha.

This game shares universe with INMIMB and Tricks N Treats or are they alternate versions of the characters?


yo EVERYONE this game is just its not me its my basemeant itch.io my basemeant but reskin


1. No it isn't

2. I made both games? 

bro is so confused that the developer had to respond to clarify that he made both games

Great game! I just cant figure out how to pry open the crate. Still an amazing game I'm just trying to gather insight on the what is needed and where it is

Edit: nvm I watched a walk-through and figured it out :D


I'm the Joker, Baby.  🀑

so idk if the game works on my mac because i got it followed the instructions and the game started but than everything went pitch black multiple times while the music was still playing than it was crashing over and over again i didnt get further than the first sentence, so the game opens goes pitch black within seconds and crashes please help i rly wanna play this :')

Tried to open this up on mac, and it didn't work, even following the instructions. Is there a way to counter act that and open the game up?

Popped in from ghostlydarii's stream, this is such a wonderful experience!! Thank you so much for making this creepy-cute game! 

ima make a video with me playing it


This game is SO good, but I'll admit I was stupid and had to do some research to understand what was missing for me to get the true ending lol

I loved seeing Embry again (even more with the Doctor and her mother alive) her interaction with Ryo was so cute. And the ending with Ingram made me melt, even though Ingram looked like Jeff the Killer himself lmao

I've downloaded almost all your games, I'm playing slowly cuz of time, but I'm loving it <3

loved this game and the character's personalities and the looks, especially ryo's two :)

Will there be a French version?

It's wondeful game! And autor made a grate improve in his skills, game about basement was average, but this one is amazing! The art, the gameplay, and like an writer I especially love the story, it's logic, twists,  psychological images of characters and objects, relationship between characters. Thank you for you game, you made something beatiful!

P.S. Sorry for my awful English :D


ryo is such a cutie patootie


jpfodmorwfm BEST GAME EVER


Just came from Shinri's stream. Thank you so much for giving permission for him to play your games on stream, for hanging out with us, and for making the lovely games in the first place! I adore this one so much especially. Going to get all my friends to play it when I can. : 3


i dont know what it is but ive never been a fan of these types of games but this one is way different. It gives me a feeling of wanting to come back and play it over and over again even though ive already beaten it entirely finding the good ending and both bad ones. I really really like this game and wanna find more like it anybody got suggestions? (please make more games like its arcadekitten)

its an amazing game, each final gave me a different feeling, the art is beautiful, idk, i just love it, your games in general

nice pfp

your games are so cut.e


hi so I need some help. I'm on a mac and i followed the steps where i opened the nwjs files but i dont know what to do from there because it just looks like a bunch of code stuff. Unless this all means it just doesn't work on my device??

Is "it's not me it's my basement" and "crowscare" are going to be on android soon?


Do you mind sharing what software you use to make these :D

Also I might have cried when um...I don't want to say any spoilers.

What a magnificently cute game!  I loved the story, and the gameplay as a whole.  The designs and art are amazingly adorable.  Loved it!

I played Tricks N Treats two years ago and it didn't hit me that you were the same creator until I slowly recognized the characters lol. Enjoyed this game.
