system requirements? i don't think it will run on my system

Specs:

Pentium 4 3.00ghz

Intel 82945G graphics GMA 930

4GB DDR2 RAM

Win 7 Ultimate

A game with 3 endings including a secret one ( my video contains spoilers on that one as i got it first try i think),the game has interesting physics to be able to throw things around and a has pretty good concept when it comes to gameplay , for me however i felt the endings were very lack luster and especially for the bad end it would of been nice to see more horror thrown in.

cool little game :)

Tried this game out to see what it was about. I don't wanna be rude but I didn't really understand it. It took me a while to figure out the controls since I didn't read them off this site first and the ending didn't really feel like an ending to me. I honestly thought I wasn't doing something right or maybe I broke it or something. I'm still not 100% if I beat it or not haha! Though there was an interesting thing you did with the toy box. How you made it move closer to the _____ if you didn't pick it up. Would be neat to see more things like that happen if you choose not to listen and follow directions. Just my two cents is all. :P

really good!

Well I downloaded this game & it didn't work. Just gave me a white screen. :/

Game was interesting!  Had fun trying it out! 

Amazing game

Thank you TheRandom Fies!

Really well done for the theme! Had a lot of fun playing with knives and trying to get the different endings! 


Thank you Pecanyoutube for recording this playthrough! 

I'm not too sure, but I think I got all three endings lol. But short or not, I enjoyed the game :)

Hi SpazzKing! Thank you for this video! :)

No problem!

Awesome Game! I had a great time recording it and playing and it really through me for a loop. Great Job! (Starts At 10:34)


Hello PEK PLAYS! Thank you so much for recording this video! Greetings from our team!

Hi Ooofatron 6000! We are sorry but we have not build mac version at all yet. It's planned for tomorrow as we will be able to access mac pc for building purpose then.

The build for macOS is just uploaded :). Enjoy! 

This game was short but great!! (12:24)

Hello CaptainLuke! You are right that the game is not so long :). Thank you for playing it!

What I liked about this game:

1. Graphics were really nice.

2. The idea of getting new goals through the phone is very neat and sinister because there are real life games like this that end up in kid's death. Really creepy!

3. Detalization is very high. THe phone has a battery that is constantly going down, the dpiser-man poster, the coffee poster, interactable books - nice details!

4. A couple of endings. Makes you replay the game. Cool!


What I disliked about the game:

1. It's a bug, I think but at the end the TV dissapears - you can see that in the attached video. You can see only parts of it.

2. The door constantly fights you. It closes too fast so sometimes it just hits you - also shown in the vid.

3. The knife makes sounds of falling when you just near it. It made me jump XD


Overall, the game is awesome! You can see it in the video (it's the second one). I hope the feedback was useful! Though, I think the game missed good oportunities for spooks such as windows or ceiling. There might me something or someone for a short period of time - but that is just a suggestion. So, my rating is 5/5. Bugs that I mentioned does not make the game less fun and enjotable)

Hello Erderi! Thank you for the video and long review! Every opinion makes us better game developers. We've fixed the bugs in the latest update so again thank you for playing!

Cheers!

If you ever start receiving weird text messages from strangers telling you to do weird things and eat cookies. DON'T TRUST THEM! In fact never even trust any texts. Too risky! Also Don't eat the cookie! It's stale!

Hey Sugarcat! Thank you for recording this funny video and playing our game! Greetings from our team! :)

i cant figure out how to get on the game and i downloaded it and everything

same it just won't run

(+1)

Probably because of your Operating System version. We will upload more platform-dependent builds(Windows x64/x32 and Linux) today. Sorry about that.

If you still want to play Don't Trust, we've just uploaded Win32 and Linux versions :) Cheers!

For such a bright game there are some pretty dark undertones going on. I really enjoyed this! I believe I got all the endings but I am not sure. First game in the video! 

Hello Jar Red! Thank you for playing our game and for recording this playthough! Greetings!

Hey, can you fix a bug where you can drop the knife behind the kitchen counter and you cant pick it back up? I got stuck and had to restart. Thanks!

Sure, thanks for the bug report!

Hello Zirantiz! The bug has been fixed in the latest update thanks to your report. Thank you again :)

omg

bro

bro...

cheers

Not entirely sure if I got all the endings, but this was pretty good! Not necessarily a scary game, but the foundation it sets is really cool. I like the idea of following orders from the phone that get darker and darker as you complete the tasks. Here's my playthrough:

(+1)

Hi Adrionic! Yes, you managed to find all of the endings! Thank you for recording this playthrough. We especially enjoyed the moment when you were waiting for the battery to run out, it was pretty funny! Greetings from our team!

I wish there was a little more backstory and not such an abrupt ending, but that's what you get for a game made in 48 HOURS. So, I totally understand and actually enjoyed myself quite a bit. Especially when I was asked outta the blue, "Hey bud, go get a knife." haha

Great work!  

Hey KingTwizz! We agree that there could be a little bit more of backstory and if we develop this game in the future, the plot will be more advanced.  However, we are happy that you enjoyed the game!

Hello! i had a lot of fun playing this game i really do like the concept of this game sense we live in a society where young kids are more likely to have mobile phones and are more likely to download random stuff they find without understanding what it really is and this game does a good job exploring this idea i managed to get all the endings (good,bad,and the Easter egg one) there was one bug with the tv which i found really funny it's at 20:36 to 20:43 in the video i made and feel free to enjoy the video too i made on your game other than that great job with this!

Hello Soulbarrier! We are glad you found all of the endigns :). Indeed, the bug is really funny and we did not notice it before!

So is the third ending the battery running out?

Yes it is :)

Got stuck in a table, played catch the knife, went to bed. Had fun.

Glad you enjoyed the video!

I remember playing the first version with Bohemian Rhapsody playing at the end a few days ago, gotta say I did enjoy that version but I forgot to add that onto the video. Either way nice game and btw I got all the endings, hope to see more content from you guys in the future!

(+1)

Hello rodteabaggins! That's awesome that you've found all the endings :) We had to get rid off the Bohemian Rhapsody due to copyright issues. 

Thanks, and yes I know It was removed because of the copyright issues but it sure was a nice song to be added in a indie horror game. Anyways best of luck to you guys and your future projects!

This game was pretty confusing,, i am not sure if i beat it or not. Had fun playing it at least ! 

Hi Cajunally! You've reached two of the three possible endings. The game was made in 48h for Sensei Game Jam so we are glad that actually there are people that actually play this game :)

Got some kick out of this game, had fun playing it!
I really love the art style and the simplistic setting.
Keep up the good work!

There are two more game jams we are attending this month so we hope to explore setting and genre even more in the following games. Thank you again for playing! :)

PS. We do apologize for any copyright issue. We've replaced music in the latest update so it won't be a problem anymore.

(+3)

I look forward to more of your games, I absolutely love the art style and setting :D

(+1)

Cool game. Not so much horror but quite sinister. A nice change of place from what i usually play, nice job.

Hello ProofreadFire! Your video was really pleasant to watch :) We are very happy that you managed to get all the endings and that you found the way to "cheat" the phone by not doing tasks. Thank you again for playing!

(+2)

It was fun! Good work. Love the art style and over all theme of the game.

We are glad to hear that BoarNotRat! Cheers! :)

I didnt get it but the graphics looked dope. 

Thank you for playing Raap OnPoint! Don't Trust ending has open interpretation as it was per game design. As It's psychological story it may be interpreted as abusive relationship, trauma or just some sort of supernatural phenomena including ghosts, demons etc. We thought open interpretation ending would be cool. Thank you again for your video!

(+1)

Thanks for the fun :D! 

Thank you too Scruncho Gaming! We do realize the game is not a typical horror game. Regardless, we hope you had fun playing it!

Hi Raiduh! We do apprieciate your comment! Could you please make the video public because we cannot watch it now as it's private :)

(+1)

I'm sorry that video was scheduled for the next day and I forgot to make a private link, I'll re-post the right link.

what am i supposed to open it as  because when i download it  it asks me what i am supposed to open it with and i figured the game would just download like other itch.io game where it downloads and i can just play it

The game is packed in .rar file because of the game size. You just have to unpack it using Winrar. 

(1 edit)

We've uploaded a new version packed in .zip. You should be able now to open it without Winrar. Enjoy!

it doesn't work for me for some reason.

(1 edit)

Could you please describe what is the problem? Does your system not recognize the file?

when i try to open the .zip it transfers to a separate folder. upon clicking on that folder none of the files will run when i click them. it says it cannot run the file.

GOOD BUT I PLAY VERSION FIRST LOL :D

Hi QueenFaith2020! We do appreciate your comment and playthrough! We've uploaded a new version containing English language, couple of bufixes, better optimization and couple of tweaks and for all endings. I hope you'll try second playtrough and find all of the endings! Cheers :)
