Really solid play through of my game Perdita! Thank you IGXL Insane Gaming XL for playing and for reaching out!
I love this game even though I got fully stuck and couldn't figure out how to progress up the stairs. The ambiance and the spooky atmosphere was amazing and really had me immersed. I did run into a glitch the first time through. I show that in the first minute of the video. I did play the most recent version of it. I can't wait to see more from you.
Hey thank you for playing! You should be able to fully look around and i haven't seen anyone have this issue. The key to the dinner room, spawns on one of the pinhead dolls inside the small house, after the event with the music box is triggered. Hope this helps you progress further! Cheers.
Thank you so much for your advice. I was able to finish your game. It was absolutely amazing, fun and spook-tatsic. I have the second half up on my channel. Yesterday on Reddit someone was talking about a flooded house in louisiana and wanted a game like that. I told them what perdita was about and I honestly hope they check it out. They used to live in manchac. I can't wait for your next game!! <3 Zombi
P.s. in case you want to see.
Just watched your playthrough! Thank you for playing and i am glad i could help you complete the game. A few cool things though, there are 3 secrets in the game, 2 relating to the story. If you look closely with your flashlight turned on against the mirror in the bathroom, you can see Julia and her her unborn child. You can also open windows by pressing E, and outside the window by the bathroom you can see the real body of Julia after she committed suicide. Now for the final secret, i see you enjoyed the mannequin room, now if you stay long enough inside the game, the one mannequin which head doesen't follow you will actually become alive and track your every movement and follow you around in the house. My next game is AKAI NOROI, a Asian / Japanese horror folklore inspired game, and is a lot more horrifying then my previous game, track development here if you want to, hope to release in around 1 month! https://www.indiedb.com/games/akai-noroi
Wooohooo! hahaha yeah nice game nice fun :D
Once again, thank you so much for playing! AKAI NOROI is coming soon! approx 1 month!
Thanks for playing everyone! The final patch + major content update is now out, and i encourage you all to re-download or try the game! Thanks for all the support! *Reuploading build might take a while*!
Perdita Final Build v0.05 Is now live, featuring patch + major content update, new explore able area, explore the old wrecked house Julia and Charles used to live in before Charles built the main house!
Start of video. Game spooked me a good number of times, just experienced the sad but progressive game breaking bug. I'll stick around to see future updates.
Thanks for playing! Yeah i might do a little update soon. Honestly a strange bug, It's only that one spot that very rarely can throw you out of the map, but i just fixed the issue, and will be doing a update soon also altering some gameplay stuff. *EDIT* Update is out now, hope you will try the game again!
awesome game! :D
Thanks for playing glad you enjoyed the game. I might do a patch when i have some time to fix some bugs soon! In the meanwhile be on the look out for my other games in development and have fun!
So I will be waiting for the development of this game and now I am taking care of the rest of your games ;)
🎀 WHAT THE HECK IS THIS? | Perdita Full Gameplay Walkthrough
Thanks for playing, even though you didn't really get far, you should have read the hint in the beginning about checking the porch, the key to the dinner room is located behind the house there, also you should check behind the cracked wood in the bathroom for a key to the fishing room where you need gas to remove the arms / eyes at the stairs. Anyway the game has a lot of story and secrets and is actually based upon a real legend, sorry if you didn't enjoy it! Might not be everyone's cup of tea.
Loved playing this horror game. the atmosphere, storytelling, the mystery behind what occurred in the house. I never once got bored playing this even when I struggled to find the key in the bathroom. Overall you made a wonderful game! can't wait to try out other games made by you.
Thanks for the nice words, and i enjoyed your play through! Besides stuff changing in some rooms the longer you stay in them, there is actually 3 more secrets in the game, one you almost found, in the bathroom if you shine your flashlight at the mirror you will see Julia and her unborn child. Also if you look closely and look up and zoom out the window in the bathroom you will see the real body of Julia hanging from a tree as detailed in the final journal. Finally the last secret is if you stay long enough in the game, a mannequin will become alive and follow and track your every movement. The game wasn't perfect, but i am glad you enjoyed it so much! For my next game everything will be better, and you will also have a horrifying AI to deal with. It is called AKAI NOROI, you can learn more about my next game here: https://www.indiedb.com/games/akai-noroi
Took me a bit to remember to link the video here also but here it is. Thank you to all who take the time to watch. I enjoyed the game and look forward to other games from Azaxor.
Thank you for playing, I very much enjoyed your play through! If you haven't already you can learn more about my next game AKAI NOROI here: https://www.indiedb.com/games/akai-noroi.
Also check out my main title "Deep Rest" https://store.steampowered.com/app/880700/Deep_Rest/.
Coming later this year to Steam and you can already add to wish-list, also dropping a revamped free demo with a part of Chapter 1 soon here on Itch when "Deep Rest" page goes live. Thank you once again!
Thanks for playing. The key to progress upstairs is located inside the fishing room, and found in the crack in the wood inside the bathroom. Seems you had some glitch in the end, might look into this. Thanks.
Thank you for playing! In order to go upstairs you need the gas can from the fishing room, to remove the arms / eyes blocking the entrance. The key to the fishing room, detailed about in Charles journal, is located in the bathroom, look through the cracked wood in the bathroom and you will find it. Hope this helps!
This was a cool little horror/mystery game! Loved the story and exploring what happened in the house. Took me a while to find some keys, very cheeky places they were hid lol. Overall, this was a great game!
Thank you Cosmicburp for playing my game!

Recently uploaded this video to YouTube where I play three horror games. “Dia” is one of them!
Check it out if you think you’d like it!
Really neat game, could use some light bug fixing for graphics/lighting otherwise I thought it was cool! (i got stuck unfortunately)
Thank you for playing and thank you for your feedback! Some effects / light could have used some tweaking yeah. The fishing room key is behind the cracked wood in the bathroom by the way.
This was a fun game. Everything was fine,no bugs or any problems.
Thank you for playing! Glad you enjoyed Perdita and had a smooth run! I am working hard on my next game so i hope you will check it out too! It's coming to Itch as well, but for now is only on IndieDB. Cheers!
Beaucoup de potentiel j'espère avoir une belle aventure sur ce jeu bientôt !
Glad you thought Perdita has potential and that you enjoyed the game! I unfortunately wasn't able to understand your feedback in the end since i do not understand your language. But thank you so much for playing, I intend to improve on all aspects in my next title AKAI NOROI which is also coming to Itch in around 1-2 months! and i have been taking in all the feedback on Perdita so i really want to impress even more with my next game and grow as a developer! Thank you!
I said " this game has a great potential mainly because of the heavy atmosphere and the jumpscare but I think if we were able to kill monsters in the game, the "horror side" would be affect in a bad way ! " i m impatient to play AKAI NOROI !
Oh i see, thank you very much! I will make sure to bring a even more creepy and atmospheric atmosphere in my next game AKAI NOROI! I agree, in my next game however there will be a horrifying AI to deal with among other things! I'm glad you can't wait to play it! If you haven't already you can follow the game and see more about it here: https://www.indiedb.com/games/akai-noroi The Itch page is also coming but will first go live a few days before release in approx. 1 month!. I also created a Patreon recently if you are interested in supporting me and get more exclusive stuff! https://www.patreon.com/AzaGameStudio
Thank you for playing!
Didn't get very far, but really had a good time. Reminded me a lot of the heart and soul of Indie horror games.
Thank you for playing! I hope you try again and get to complete the game. The bug in the end shoulden't happen and is very rare btw.
I really enjoyed this game! But i think it didn't run so smoothly, had somekind of lag. But that was only small thing, the story and small things like those spells were nice and fun! Few good jumpscares as well. Well done developer!
Thank you for playing my game! If you experience lagg try to reduce the graphical quality by pressing ESC > Options, should help. Thank you for your playthrough, i enjoyed watching it! Glad you enjoyed the story! There are two secrets in the game relating to the story that not many have found out, both are in the bathroom. First one is, if you shine your flashlight at the black mirror, you will see Julia and her unborn child staring back at you inside the mirror. Next secret is if you look closely outside the bathroom window you will see the real body of Julia hanging from a tree as described in her final journal she wrote after taking her life. Thank you so much for playing! If you enjoyed Perdita you should check out my next game AKAI NOROI coming soon! https://www.indiedb.com/games/akai-noroi
I'm glad you enjoyed! Oh shit, shame that I missed those secrets! Need to play it again, I wanna see those :D Thanks for letting me know what they were. Oh my! That looks lit, is it going to be here itch.io as well? I'm looking forward to it! Looks so good.
Thanks to Nokzen channel for playing my game! Check it out here:
Thank you very much Ultimate Gamerz channel, for playing my game! Check out the video here:
Thank you very much to MediaGamesGuide for playing and completing my game! Check out the video here:
There seems to be a glitch that teleports the player out side the map if you hit a edge in the room to the right at the beginning.
Hey thank you for making me aware of this! I seem to have pinned down this issue to a script that controls the spiders roaming around in the house, very rarely you can collide with a spider stuck in a collision and it can somehow drag the player outside the map. Thanks for your comment regardless!
This game is so scary and atmosphere is really good! Good horror game by the way.
Hey, itch.io admin here. I just noticed you're hosting your game through an external link. I removed the upload limit from your account so you can upload directly to itch.io. We'd like to share your game on the homepage, but it can't be hosted on a third party site. Thanks!
Hey, thank you I originally wanted to upload the game here as well but been pretty busy since launch, forgot to send you guys a e-mail about expanding the file size limit since Perdita is 1.71GB zipped, so thank you very much for this and for featuring my game! I will upload it ASAP. *Edit* I have now uploaded the game to Itch again, and hidden the old external download. Cheers!
I thought the atmosphere was really good! I managed to get jumpscared quite a lot in the game as well!
Thank you for playing, I'm glad you enjoyed the game! I had fun watching your play through!
I really loved the atmosphere, sense of scaring and creeped me off xD but just few part were abit poor animated scaring scene(i wont spoil which part) and the one key were abit too harsh to detect.. (found with luck actually) but over all, i enjoyed alot! great work! i wanted to play game like this :)
(lets play video in japanese)
Thank you so much for playing my game! I'm glad you enjoyed the game. Yes the bathroom key described in the journal page in the garage can be a bit too hard to find! Glad you managed to complete the game. My next game is actually based upon japanese / asian folklore and will be called AKAI NOROI. I have been studying all playthroughs and taking it all with me on my next game and i appreciate your feedback!
Thank you Max Horror for playing my game!

Big thanks to Alpha Beta Gamer for playing my game!

This bothers me a lot. You have this great atmosphere and pacing, but the story and horror elements need some massive improvement. This game crashed 3 times while I was playing and I got spawned out of the map.
I'm sorry if you did not find the story interesting or enjoyed the horror elements. The game should not crash, if you experience continuous crashes try to reduce the graphic quality to the lowest. Have never spawned out of the map either or seen anyone do, so that is also strange. Thanks for reporting this to me though. Hope you will enjoy my next horror title AKAI NOROI, perhaps it is more to your liking. Cheers.
Beyond my personal gripes of why I should axe every doll I see, this is a very well made game in terms of atmosphere and spooks. (seriously. Screw the dolls.) I wish batteries would refill at least half the flashlight meter instead of just one pip of the meter.
Here's my channel for other games I have played. http://www.youtube.com/c/Levont
Thank you for playing! Glad you enjoyed the game, I noticed the game was particularly dark in your video, perhaps you can alter this by reduce your gamma on your monitor if you haven't tried already. Anyway in order to progress above the stairs, you need to find a key in the bathroom in the wooden board crack. This is also "hinted" about in the note in the garage. But i agree there is not much hand holding or hints in my game, i will take your feedback on wards with me on my next title. Thank you for your feedback.
