This game looks like one of my stupid horror-like games I throw together in Adventure Maker every so often.

My brother picked this up, just cause it seemed interesting....one of the worst games ever. This is the kinda game I'd make people play to show them what not to do in game development.

Such a letdown, but if it only raised $377, how could it have much content? I hope they get more funding so they can actually make a decent game.

Horrifically poor looking (and sounding) game that seems to have just been thrown together in next to no time with Unity 3D. This isn't the first time Treefall Studios have developed crap, they've also done this:


and unbelievably, it was (just about) successfully funded. If you have a look at their stretch goals for Night Detective, these guys really do have delusions of grandeur given how lousy their output is. 'The Letter' should have been free, charging money for it is an absolute joke. Treefall have also put a video up on Youtube showing what will be in the first update....nothing worth getting excited about at all.
