Can we give you a little scare in less
than 10 minutes?
The ER is based on research within the
field of mystery and the primitive instincts that are still deeply rooted in
human biology to this day.
Put on your headphones and be our
guineapig in our little horror experiment, if you dare.
Be a part of the research
After you are done with the game, we
would appreciate it if you answer our questionnaire here. It only takes a few
minutes and you will help our work writing a research paper on flow in narrative
We are in the middle of two other and much bigger game projects, that we soon will make some announcements about, but all the great feedback have given us the desire to turn The ER into a fleshed out "real" game. We have been doing the designs for how we on a small budget can take what The ER does well and bring it to the next level, and at the same time fill out the holes that The ER have. Like something about some missing arms. Perhaps you get the answer as to why you are missing them. It's not 100 % set in stone, but we will try a little later on to turn The ER into a atmospheric story driven horror game that you can throw a little bit of money after.
Good evening! I don't know if you are still active, but I have come to say that I enjoyed your game so much! It was chilling experience and I absolutely loved every second spent. The protagonist is very oddly cute(?)!! I want to know what happened to his(her?) arms.. I also feeled bad for Dying Man (´;︵;`)... But, I love this game so much, I was so happy when I read that you might possibly make it real, longer game! I will try your other games too because I believe they are just as amazing!!!1!
I wanted to draw the protagonist (Image appear above text for some reason).. My art's are not very good, but I hope one day you will get lots of better and very cool fanart from others!! (I also apologize for my bad English, I can speak better Japanese!,)
Thanks for sharing your lovely drawing with us. It made us smile.
The protagonist is a lady, and the few sounds she makes in the game is done by Maria, who is the artist behind The ER.
We have already made the first prototype for the new The ER, and we plan to go into full production on the new game in the first half of 2020. Right now our team behind The ER are working on a very different game (a dating adventure game) which is due for completion this year. When they are done they will start work on the new ER game.

Aaaa I am so happy that you like it!!! And thank you for post it on Twitter too! 🙏 I want to draw more soon! I will send on Twitter if I do (since itchio only let me attach a single image,)!
Oh, my!! :o I had the feeling protagonist were lady! I was just not sure so it was better to ask (笑lol) I hope the lady get new arms someday,, she needs happiness too ( ；∀；) Tell Maria that her art style is very great! 🙏🙏 I love how it is simple but impactful at the same time!
I am very hyped! I wish you lots of good luck on new ER and other game projects you are planning! And oh my!! A dating simulation adventure game? :00 In Japan we call them otome games! I would really love to play once it is out!! Will characters be pretty like ER lady?? (ӦｖӦ｡)
By the way, thank you for the fast reply! I am so happy to be noticed! You guys are among my favorite game developer teams!
i would NOT recomend this game. and i'm actually surprised to see so much support here, and it makes me suspicious about it. This game is not scary and is not well made. When i see games like this around, i usually get hyped, cause i'm thinking "they did not focus too much on graphics, so probably they put a lot of effort in the rest!" but often, like in this game i left disappointed.
Dont want to be rude here, but with the premise "can we give you a scare in 10 min" i was honestly expecting "something" and i got nothing. a guy without arms (thas was actually pretty cool) that just go straight left/right to found nothing and than up to be chased in a uninspired sequence to the end of the game.
Hello I am from India and I tried this game and want to say that this game is really good and can be improved like more jumpscares btw if this game gets full release I am definitely going to play this game
India is a long way from where we live, so we are glad to hear from you. We went for a more atmospheric horror, so that is why there are not so many jump scares. The plan is to put out a full version of the game next year, if all goes well. Thanks for all your feedback.
This is a nice neat game, shame it wasn't longer though. I don't know what kind of experiment you are doing with this game but I filled out the survey after completing the game. The game itself wasn't too bad, not as scary as I thought it would be but I do have a question... Why do I not have any arms? I also played the game after the end credits and for those who have not, I recommend you do. I did try searching for more secrets in the game but couldn't find any more. I made a video so I hope you enjoy and I go more in depth
The game reminded me of Neverending Nightmares combined a little with Fran Bow, both games I very much enjoyed! This game, even though it was just a piece of experience, delivered amazing atmosphere and dread for me. I am glad I played and recorded it!
This is so awesome. Instantly this gave me nostalgic feelings back to Neverending Nightmares.
Good enviroment, awesome sound quality and fun gameplay. I like the hospital enviroment and wish the game could be a bit longer. Having that thing out there is freaky.
Hoping you getting the time and resources to make ER into a "real game" in the future. Reading that it almost feels like this is a demo of some sort. So much potentials for a good story and fun gameplay.
Thanks for ER and I'm looking forward what other projects you are working on.
Yes I saw the new cover art and, I have to say it looks a ton better than what was there before. I think the new cover art stands out and, will attract many more let's players and, gamers to your game! Hope your team continues to keep up the great work!
Your character remind us of our first boss in our game The Night Christmas Ended. If you read this before someone else, here is a steamkey for The Night Christmas Ended, so you can see the first boss yourself:
