este juego lo probe el año pasado, pero apenas estoy subiendo mi video. es una alegria muy grande el saber que habrá una version completa en steam. 

it was really funny, my girl almost puke c:

Quirky game with an outcome I didn't expect.

A little relaxation and a screwdriver in the sockets

Interesting game lol. I lowkey enjoyed it.

I am definitely getting a 1 Star for this particular job, just gonna stick my screwdriver into the socket and end it all

Good Job btw 👍

I loved how weird this was, very unique spin on a home builder game, wish endless mode had something more going on with it but overall this is one of those wild Itch.io gems and I'm glad I checked it out for a video (:

I made a video on your game (27:54)

Nice little short indie game! I enjoyed it and had fun despite it being so short, im not fully sure I understand the endless mode but it doesn't matter, fix the house for all eternity!

Awesome game! I love the mysterious story behind what the player's character and his business caused.

8.8/10, indie horror game standards.

Was not expecting this LMAO but good times and fun game!

im a regular tom the toolguy tillman!

I really wonder if there's any purpose to being able to go out of bounds at the start of the game..?

Fantastic work on a wonderful horror game amazing sound and game play

didnt know this was a horror game and started playing it 

god damn i wanna play this so much!!

I really liked this game! I love the ps1 styled graphics. Sadly idk what happened but the endless mode didnt really make anything endless, dont know what it was supposed to do, either i did sumthing wrong or not. Either way great game!

Very interesting and fun horror game!
Love the idea of a power washing simulator/house flipper chill type of game with a horror element!

Great Job Substandard Shrimp!

this game was cool, I just finished a game jam about wrote about the House of Leaves, and then this!


Hello! I included your game in my latest Itch.io Horror Games video! As a massive House Flipper fan I just had to check this one out and I absolutely loved it! Keep up the great work! Cheers!


had an absolute blast playing it, a lil creepy tho


Great renovation game!

Весело. Але мало


After playing this game and talking to my therapist, I have come to the conclusion that this in fact, without a doubt is absolutely just a regular home renovation simulator. Nothing to be scared of.. It's all in your head Jean...

That house got renovated, with or without any spiritual interference


Really enjoyable home renovator sim! Enjoyed the story! Defintly not what I expected! Hope you enjoy my video! 

The old video game retro style really feeds into the idea your a kid at home playing your game then this shit happens lmao. overall great game and would play again. this kinda resembles house flipper but 1990's to early 200s so no regrets. in fact, the very opposite.

Check out my video :)

This game was pretty cool! I hope the devs expand on this idea further and maybe add more scares! All around a simple cute game though!! :):)

♥ love you guys ♥

Hello your game creator. I am iix_FranK Gaming from Youtube or calling the nickname FranK, but even though the nickname is not the same. But it's okay I am supporting this game so that your game is very good. But even though I am not very good at speaking English Like other people as much as they can speak English I am just speaking Thai. But you don't understand my language. However, I support this game is enough for you. There's no problem. Hope you are happy. I hope this game will be encouraged.

Really did like the game, especially how it all ties in together at the very end. The way the story is told as things get progressively worse and worse and the sudden flashbacks and rooms changing was very unnerving and then became really spooky! 

The way you told the story and what happened without actually saying what happened was really cool and ties in really well with the 'Endless Mode' being a purgatory loop, it was really well made! I also can't shake the feeling that there is more to the game and maybe another ending >.> But great game! Good luck for other projects!

Cool sound effects, awesome game 10/10 :D Thank you dev!

You know when someone says something is "normal" that is a complete opposite.

I don't know if you have to finish the endless mode a certain amount of time in order to get the ending but there's no end to the game

I had a good time with this game!!! Although the lore was a bit confusing at times, it did show a very interesting plot!! I also really liked how you could just use any material for the floor. It's almost like customizing the house to what you desire!!! Keep up the good work!!! If you're curious about my experience, then you can check out the video on my channel or watch the video I posted here! Enjoy my agony!

un juego bastante entretenido, muchas veces el ver como algo  común puede llevarnos a la locura resulta interesante. 

You made a simple house flipper game with a really creepy undertone, well done dev! 

Pretty fun to do renovation in this game, good work :)

I in fact built houses for a decade, and you sir/madame, have NAILED IT! The plaster boarding, the electrical outlets, the fixing of paintings! you even got the whole entity inside of every house that tries to drag your psyche closer and closer to a mad state! 11/10 I shit my pants. 

This was a lot of fun to play! Really enjoyed the creepy undertones and how it took a turn! It was so cool playing a DIY horror game!
