This game is legit good, i had a lot of goosegumps with it and jumps too, the fourth-wall break is AMAZING. The only thing that makes me sad is this game isn't popular enough, but keep up the good work, and one day you might be noticed. ;)

Please make sure to read the disclaimer that is shown at the very beginning.
This game is extremely intelligent and has the ability to break the fourth wall and act like a real computer nightmare. It will interact with the computer, recognize player actions, and crash the game on purpose to create new events throughout the game meaning you have to restart the game if that happens and more. Please note that this game is 100% harmless in every way and is created for an amazing experience.
If you see any mobile version of this game do not play them as they are not created by me and contains tons of ads. These games are simply fake and will not work or be playable in any way.

I entered the Forest, when I got every key and passed the iron gate at the end, I quit because I needed to do other things, when I came back and launched the game, I found myself in this weird place was there. I think it said "Error" and had some weird writings in red at the top left corner of my screen, the place was a hallway with noises that got worse and worse as I continued to explore. In front of me was the face on the TV where the music box of Sadness is in the Realverse. Another hallway was accessible where I proceeded, there we're blinding lights and sprites of a weird figure in the background. A sort of eye figure chased me but not the same one as in the start of the game, it was sort of triangular shaped. My game crashed when it finally reached me with a pop up error, then my screen started getting brighter and darker, the background didnt change to black this time but flashed different lights eventually stopping at orange, my sound went up and down with laughing, and finally went to max sound and had a deafening ringing sound that was so loud I turned off my headphones. The taskbar disappeared. I'm scared to open the game again because not only might it repeat but there might not be the debug mode to restart the game. Please help.
Edit: I opened the game back up and it went back to the Forest.
So I playedthe 32 bit version. vwey laggy but it works. The programs like 303.exe were the only ones that were not laggish. Great game though
Can you help me my friend played the game to the end and now he can`t delete it ? What is wrong there ?
That means a process is in use. You may have to logout and log back in to fix that. Then you should be able to delete it.
I watched youtubers play it but i wish to play it as well. i downloaded the free version but i have a 32-bit operrating system. can you create a game that supports 32 bit? Edit: i read the comments and saw that you have a link for that system. can you send me one as well?
I think that specific version that I sent was the 32 bit edition of the Special Edition. Since a new big update is currently being made I can send you a updated version of the 32 bit copy of the game. I send you a link once I get the chance to upload it.
XerStudios can you help me? Every time when i start the game the window of the settings is too big and i cant press on the start button.
Could you help me? Every time the game tries to run a program it asks me if I want to run it or cancel. Like (spoilers) when the screen melts and it kinda ruins the experience. Is there a way to disable this? Thanks!
I think having the current windows user account set to administrator instead of just non-admin fixes the problem. But I'm not 100% sure about it. I couldn't find a way to automatically grant access from just the script itself. Plus I don't have this problem that your having so it's probably the computer permissions being set to manual run instead of just auto execution. You could also check the windows defender settings to see how these permissions are managed. But I try seeing if your account is full admin or not first.
Xerstudios, can you help me? I downloaded the game and copied the floder to my desktop, i can launch it but i get this window with a X in the bottom right and it shuts down immediatly. I guess it's because my PC is too shitty but i CAN run stuff like: Black rose and mirror layers. What can i do?
That's strange! If you do not see the splash screen from the launcher try opening the game without the launcher by going into the data folder located next to the launcher and opening ADarkPlace.exe. Also this could be a problem with system compatibility such as not being able to play directx 11 games or having a 32bit system. Even though instead of just crashing it should have given you at least an error message or a runtime error of some sort. If you are using a 32bit system I could send you a link for that specific version. And are you using the paid version of the game or the free version? Also sending a screenshot or at least a picture of what its doing can help me fix this since I haven't had anyone have this problem before.
There is no 'ADarkPlace.exe' if i open the version that's in the data folder (the one with the face icon) i get the message:
There should be 'ADarkPlace_Data'
folder next to the executable
I unzipped the game too, so i don't understand. i added some screenshots for you to make it a bit more clear what i'm talking about. 3 of them are of the game files, and the other one is the black screen i was talking about, it just closes down after.
My computer IS a 64bit system, but maybe the 32bit version will work anyway?
i'm using the free version! thanks for replying.
This helps a lot as I can now see the problem, it appears the game did not install correctly and is missing important files needed to run the game. Try downloading the game through my main game page here https://gamejolt.com/games/ADarkPlace/323680 and that should fix the issue you are having.
will there be a mac version absolutely love this game!!
Sadly no because the scripts that were used to do the desktop effects only support windows operating system. My next game creation may be multi-platform (not console) since I'm planning to create a bigger project.
I understand completely the game is amazing and I’m in college for programming so if you guys are ever looking for free help let me know I need the experience. Big fan of the glitchy/ virus style game you guys made!
it was a weird cool game :D
i cant install it
the install button is there but when i hit install it gives me no option :(
How can I delete the Game if It's Not playable? The Jumpscares scares me to death Xd

So I really dig this game and everything but after entering the code to the door to the forest the game doesn't let me continue. And when I exit and re enter the game it deletes my save. This has happened twice now and I'm pretty bummed about it.
That doesn't seem right. Does the code work? If it does then are you placed by the door again after entering? If the map doesn't load when you open the door or get the code right, then this might mean the level is corrupt on your end. Reinstalling the game will probably fix that issue only if the level is indeed corrupt. There is a feature in the game that resets the progress if a level isn't found so in that case I think its a file corruption issue.
If you already reinstalled the special edition and still have the same problem you can use the debug menu by pressing f when the game starts up and if you click on edit savefile you can choose a level to load. To go back to where you were before you have to press next 2 times on the level loader and click on TheForest.unity located on the top-left. This will also bypass the passcode part and send you straight into where you were supposed to be after entering the code.
I'll definitely do this. Thank you so much! Really enjoying the game too.
Edit: I don't think I even tried to reinstall either and I feel like an idiot. I'll probably reinstall anyway you assure this doesn't happen again but thank you for all your help.
THIS GAME LITERALLY BLOWS MY MIND!
I would play more of the game but..... it does require a powerful PC to properly play on. I enjoyed it though, nevertheless the lag.
Without question.. One of the most innovative games I've ever played. I am superbly impressed.
This game is genius!! Best horror game ive ever seen! When u could get access to smarthome, u could make the light flicker and make scary calls ^^. Just an idea... keep it up and good luck 4 future projects! Best wishes, bread
Really clever game. I would have played more but my anti virus kept blocking stuff, which gave me a unique experience xD
Here's the last part of my playthrough on this great game!
This has been a challenge and it only gets creepier the further you play!
Is MFA Here?
This game has been super fun to play! It messes around with your computer and truly seems like the game is interacting with you! (Completely harmless!) The puzzles have been challenging and there always seems to be a twist around every corner! Great game overall, I love the concept!
