what's the difference between the regular download and v2?
v2 has a second alternative ending that can be found. It also has some small big fixes.
Hi.. I'm a MacBook player.. Every time I open the game it goes to a black screen. Now I thought that was a part of the game, till I had actually started the game when I realized it was staying black... I've tried Sanctified Mac V2.app.zip and Sanctified_Mac.app.zip.. with no luck.. please help?
Hi! Sorry this is happening to you. It's a bug I've been trying to fix for quite a while but with no luck so far :( Thanks for checking the game out regardless
This game was so unsettling and neat! Great job :D I made a video on the game as well.
Thanks for checking it out! The video is great :)
Made a video
I really enjoyed the style of the game. I like the story & I like how the atmosphere is captured. Despite nothing really coming for you, the haunting feeling and claustrophobic corridors of the hotel left me wanting more. A great ending as well which I honestly didn’t see coming. A must play!
This game has a really cool way of feeling sinister all the way through.. Really well done 😀
Hi there, i have the same issue with the black screen and had kind of a similar one when working with certain post processing stack effects, don't know if it haves anything to do with this, but hope it helps.
That's it, the game looks awesome, i'll keep my hopes to be playing it soon
yeah same im also getting a black screen as well.
Hi! I'm currently looking into this. That processing effects issue you had is ringing a bell. I'll have to check it out and come back to you!
Very interesting game that had me guessing from beginning to end! I really enjoyed it!
There is always a certain charm to PSX and N64 types of games when it some to graphics. But horror always seems to work no matter the square form everything has.
The environment is good. Creepy hotel with creepy guests. The music that is played on the radio is good. Fits together with the mood you wanna set in the game when you hear it.
Good story that gives you a lot of room to work with if you ever wanna make it a longer game. The only annoying part I found is that you have to wait for everybody to finish talking before you can move on. You sure stayed true to some PSX types of games there. :)
Really great game. Keep it up.
This was really interesting and creepy...
This game had a great narrative. I love the visual style as well. Great pacing with the story! Overall, one of the best games I've found here on itch.io! Here's my playthrough:
This game is pretty interesting and creepy.
Fullscreen does not work on my distro of Linux (Fedora Cinnamon). I'll have to come back to this game with my Windows PC sometime.
Very cool Cult game! Made a video, even though there's already a million lol.
В принципе неплохо, было пару багов... Но это же инди :)
Спасибо за старание ;)
SO MUCH NAKEY!
Thanks for the fun :D
I apologize, but I tried your game for my channel on Twitch, but I encountered the same problem some others had with the black screen and I couldnt see anything. I tried the switching back and forth with full and windowed and I couldnt fix the problem. I apologize but it wouldnt work. If you get that fixed please let me know as I would love to play it on my channel. Thank you!
Gave it a go...
Loved this game !!! Had so much fun playing, thanks!
Interesting play that's for sure... Kinda missed the old school aesthetics of back-in-the-day horror games. Loved the piano soundtrack that played throughout the game! Just out of curiosity, what were they called?
Played your game for my channel. The retro aesthetic was great! hope you enjoy my video
Everything seemed fine until I pressed the button to play the game, I can't see anything but the text at the bottom of the screen. But I can hear my footsteps and the rest of the sounds.
This is an ongoing issue that I'm trying to sort out. Sorry about that!
Weird and eerie, loved it! The art style must've been my favorite thing of the game and also the story even though I was a little confused at times. Everything about this was just amazing, keep up the good work :D
I don't know if you've heard of Game Development World Championship before (gdwc2019) but it's a competition for indie game developers where they can submit their games and it's free! It's great if you want some more visibility for the game and it only takes a couple of minutes to join :)
one of the best mystery stories ive seen in awhile. left me asking plenty of questions... great short indie game
This game frustrated me BUT...I liked it!
The game is great atmosphere is creepy and good story rated 5/5 :D i hope you enjoy my gameplay
Thanks for the 5/5 I'm flattered! I really enjoyed the Gameplay you did great :)
A scary game indeed, I liked this one.
So the introductory text crawl plays and then I just get a black screen. I'm in the game because I can hear my footsteps walking round. I've tried reinstalling and switching between full-screen and windowed, and I don't think it's an issue with my PC. Any help?
This is weird as I'm getting people who can play the game no problem and then others who encounter this issue. I honestly have no idea. I'm going to have to check why this is happening and get back to you on it.
For now all I can recommend is closing it and starting again or maybe try play it in windowed mode. Sorry about this!
Yeah, switching between full and windowed didn't do anything. Such a shame as it looks really interesting!
Hi, thanks for trying that out. I'm trying to get a fix done but I need to see the errors from the logs. If you could do me a huge favor I'd really appreciate it!
Would you mind going to your AppData folder on your C drive and going to a folder that would have been created called "doomed astronaut". There should then be a folder for Sanctified that should contain any output or error logs. If they are there could send them to me? I'm trying my best to get this thing fixed :)
If not though, that's cool with me.
🎀 WHY IS EVERYONE NAKED?! | Sanctified Full Gameplay Walkthrough
Nick Cage jokes aside, I actually did see some parallels with the Wicker Man - intentional or not. The "thing" at the end that wasn't fully shown was pretty neat. I'm kind of glad it wasn't fully revealed and that there's a bit more to think about. The wealth of "Fathers" in this game was pretty confusing, but I guess it makes more sense as a theme than a single character. I did run in to a few issues like the sprint key freezing you while inside and also not being able to jump indoors (probably intentional). I understand the collectibles add a bit of gameplay but I feel like the search for them wasn't too interesting. Other than that it was a pretty nicely packed experience. Looking forward to more from you in the future!
It’s got a very silent hill/resident evil/alone in the dark vibe which I really loved. The story and atmosphere were awesome but the slowness of dialogue let it down just a little bit for me.
All in all it was a very injoyable experience and I'd love to see more of this.
creepy game, i liked a lot :D ( Spanish Play-Through)
for some reasont he key in the bathroom would only show pick up key like once or twice and i missed it both times because the game window is small by default and i couldnt see the text that much since i was looking for it but please dont make the game windows so small... lol
Thanks for checking it out and making a video. You can use Alt + Enter to make it full screen.
I actually like it when games have a "make your own conclusion" story, this was pretty well done if a little dark.
This was a very cool game! It was very interesting!
Cool game. I didn't fully understand the story, but that's usually the case with me.
