It takes an awful lot to freak me out, but this...this is CURSED!

And your telling me its not even the full game?? Jeez

Hey I really like it but 4 questions feel free not to answer!

1: can you estimate when the game will come out cause potato said "lets meet in in a year"?

2: are the endings for collecting all the chompettes?

3 : does the comedy show has any lasting affect in the game?

4:can i not collect ANY chompettes?

for whatever reason the game won't start at all for me. I'm playing on macOS and whenever I try to start it up nothing happens?

Thanks for letting me know: I uploaded a new mac version, can you try it again? I unfortunately don't have a mac, but I'll try to help!

it worked. thank you so much !

for some reason the game won't start at all for me, i'm playing on the windows version and I have no reason to believe it's my antivirus software, please help. i fixed it i believe it's because i had the game in a folder that was too long since as soon as i moved it to a more shortly named folder it worked perfectly fine.

Sorry for the long delay: We've had VERY rare instances where Norton Antivirus wasn't allowing the game to launch. Glad it worked out!


I downloaded this game but a few days went by before I played it and I may have totally forgot about the horror tag when I decided to play it XD. It was surprisingly creepy! I got Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark vibes (books not movie). I made a video if you maybe want to see my reaction or a bit of the gameplay 🖤 Headphone warning! I do scream a few times ngl XD


i thought the "bite ur ear" part was kinky

but boy,


Hello everyone: Absolutely blown away by the reception on Itch! Some of you found some bugs: I will be fixing them soon. Thank you for playing!


Looks like we have ourselves a new DDLC game, but with food



Amazing game dev :D
