Hello really cool game. I really liked the gameplay and the fact that the game isn't some generic horror with jumpscare. But it creates an uneasy feeling wich stays during all playtime.
Also, if you're interested i could try to translate this game in french. I really enjoyed it and if that can help more people play the game and know your work i'll be glad to do it :)
Just uploaded my video. It was a fun and unique game!
Thank you for playing and for the video :).
Vraiment super !
Concept original vraiment bravo bon travail !
Merci beaucoup d'avoir joué et pour vos aimables paroles, je suis content que vous ayez apprécié.
Thank you for playing! I'm happy that you enjoyed the game and it's atmosphere :).
This was so much fun! I really enjoyed all the back and forth and secrets! Such a fantastic job!
Thank you for playing and for your kind words! :) I'm glad that you enjoyed it.
You're welcome and of course! :D
so nice to see a new game from you, and the gameplay is really fun, i think its unique enough that it stands out , good stuff :)
Full Demo NO Commentary
Thank you so much for playing MHG! I'm glad that you enjoyed it and sorry for taking so long to release a game lol. :)
take all the time you need, I love your work :)
Great game! The gameplay is innovative and intriguing. The game interested me so much that I went hunting for the secret channels, typing number after number...it was time consuming but I found them all!
If OP doesn't mind me posting them, here they are:
Not saying anything...except I'm really interested in what channel 666 means by that! ;)
((Op, do you need any help with the art of the game? You mentioned in 319 it took you forever to make it...))
Thank you for playing! I don't mind you putting the channels, it seems a lot of people had trouble finding them. (They are actually my other games' dates of release)
I really appreciate you asking about that, but as I don't have money or any other compensation to offer I can't just ask anybody to help me with this.
Thank you so much for the support and for your kind comment :).
I see! Unluckily I'm stuck with another project rn, otherwise I would have gladly helped in my free time...I mean, if you still need any help by the time september comes around, just ask! I can tell apart not being able to pay because of corporate greed and because of budgetless passion projects.
It's just that I see so much potential in this kind of game, that a good art direction would surely be able to "sell" it better to the public :) if you'd like to see a portfolio, let me know...!
If you'd rather do it solo, you'll still have my full support!
Thank you for your kind words and for offering to help, I'm really glad you want to help me with this. Unfortunately I can't accept help with the art, I'm the type of person that's too self conscious and doesn't want to push people to do something unless I can compensate them lol. I tried to work with a lot of people who offered free work, some do help, but most people end up ghosting me and I understand them, life happens.
But I really want to see your portfolio, I want to have contacts in case that I need stuff that I really won't be able to do, so feel free to send it :). (you can DM me on twitter @Maldo19 or send it to my email maldo . 19 @ hotmail.com ) Thank you so much for your support!
This was a great little game and I loved the aesthetic of it, look forward to seeing where this goes or projects you may create in the future.
Thank you so much for your kind words and for playing! I don't know what the future holds, but for now I'm doing my best to make a part 2 for the game.
¡Muchas gracias por jugar! :)
Here's my video.
Thank you for the video and for playing!
Very, very fun experience.
Thank you for playing! :)
I loved this game. Its a very simple game but super creepy. I didnt know that it has 4 secret channels! I only found one!
Thank you for playing! :)
Very creative game!
Now we definitely need 'Part II' where we can make something against '???' in the new city.
Thank you for playing! I'll do my best so Part II doesn't take too long :).
I really liked the fact that by zapping the TV we could see bits and pieces of information, and that the mystery was revealed little by little!
My favorite event was the date event! I liked the content of the good choices, but I also liked the message when I tried to choose another option, which gave me a sense of fear that made me break out in a cold sweat!
Thank you so much for playing and for the kind words :). The date is one of my favorites too, I really liked how it ended up.
This was a brilliant game and I enjoyed every moment of it!! I really loved the art style, and the storytelling kept me hooked and wanting to find out the truth about the town. I hope to see more from you in the future!!!
Thank you for playing! I'm really happy that you enjoyed it so much! :) I'll do my best so I can make more games for you all to play!
If you create something like this but bigger, i would buy it blindly. What a great experience, what a great job!
Thank you so much for the kind words! I'll do my best to make it a reality :).
can someone make a guide? I don't know how to do the ritual properly.
Sorry for the late answer. You should make some breakfast before you pray, if you make it the answer would be pretty straightforward. If you still have trouble, I'll write a small guide for that part down below. Thank you for playing!
You need to go to the kitchen and make breakfast, if you examine the items you can mix them into making some eggs with toast. After you finish, the game will tell you about channel 304, where... You are going to see the answer to making the ritual properly.
thanks man that was a big help
Love it! I love the graphics, music, and the way the story was told. Can't wait for more!
Thank you so much for playing and for your kind words, I'm really happy that you enjoyed it! :)
Hehe np, hope to see more from you in the future! 😊
Serious potential for this game to make it big. Super unique and a lot of fun to play through. Amazing job!
Thank you so much for playing and for the kind words :)! Sadly the youtube link is broken, it doesn't let me see the video.
I noticed that too. I couldn't get it to work no matter what I tried. But when I copied and pasted the link into the search bar it actually worked, so I think it is something weird with Itch. If you are still interested in watching, here is the link to my channel https://firstname.lastname@example.org/featured. It should be pretty easy to find the video, as it is still very recent.
Absolutely beautiful game.
Thank you so much for playing and for this comment :)
You honestly have a great talent for storytelling, I am planning on playing The Horror Of Salazar House very soon.
Anyways, most of my compliments to the chef are at the end of the video if you care to take a listen. Thank you for making this game, and I look forward to more from you.
Thank you so much for playing and for making this video! :)

This is such a cool, unique game and you can see and feel how much love went into all the details and individual designs. The story was great, the gameplay was super fun, it’s a marvelous experience, a real gem and one of the reasons why indie horror games are such a great treasure trove.
