lovin the game so far!! v cool artstyle, story, and music, many thanks 4 da devs for ur hard work <3 but veeery quick question: when will the entire soundtrack b released? musics groovy as hell and id love to give some streams on spotify! thanks again :)

Honestly Love this game, just wanted to ask out of curiosity when this game reaches completion will we see a steam release for it, cause I would gladly pay for such. 

timeline for a steam release is unknown as well as full completion but we'll be releasing the chapter update (hopefully) sometime this fall!


How long will this game be updated again? I am happy to wait for a new season. This game is the best; I love your game <3

if yall could can we hear the voice before we choose em, not a big problem cuz u can change it later but it would be more convientetent if yes <3 luv ur game btw

I'm having something happen were a few of the images in the game are broke like parts of them in the wrong place is this like a known thing everything else is great and its not a big deal but I'm curious

Hello. In this game, is the MC a human?

They are, sadly.

Sadly indeed.

I really liked this game! The visual style is just wonderful! I translate games into Ukrainian, so if you don't mind, I could translate the game with every update and wish to make it official. It will help to expand the audience, and why not? If you are interested and want to contact me, here is my e-mail: eugenko.uwu@gmail.com (or my Telegram: @Abuba41R (or at least answer in a replay))


is this still being worked on?


Yes! The next update is still in development!


I sincerely hope I can date Atlas' papa. If I can't, yall made so many other cool cryptic that I would only cry once a week instead of everyday. Great work!


This is amazing! The music and artstyle and even the combat system is really nice. All the characters shown so far are really interesting and would definitely like to get to know more about in future updates to this game. Overall, everything shown here is executed really well (The voice acting is really amazing too!)


Hello, please write to me on discord @ 5starhush. I would like to speak to you guys about someone who is stealing photos of your game and trying to claim it is their own game with a whole different name. They are making up a scam having people download and install their game and willing to "pay" them. Please write to me as soon as possible as I'd like to have these people dealt with.

Hello, first time here! Just wondering, can I change the settings so the dialogue won't skip? Is this some kind of bug? I've been trying to play and I can't read it because of this issue. (PS. Hope the game gets released soon in all it's entirety! I'll be supporting from the shadows heh). 


I absolutely adore this game but Is there any way to change your dice after you pick it in like the first fight? I hate the Jackalopes fate but cant find where to change it :(


when you start the game, choose start game and it'll take you to chapter select where you can change dice


oh my goodness thank you so much, we are now rocking with Lemon Squeasy

looks great. would pay for it if i could


I like Cryptid Crush. This really makes me want to Crush some Cryptids.

I love this game, it crashes a lot but I'm sure that's my device's problem, favs are madhouse and atlas

Is this game nsfw?


This is a safe-for-work game!

(1 edit)

Do you plan to add NSFW content to the game? (It would be nice if not. 0wo)

we will not add NSFW content to the game, n

i love your game,how it get's completed soon.

(1 edit)

Is it just me, or is it impossible to leave the settings menu on the android build? I don't see any button or anything, though I'm not the smartest or most observant person out there, so I could be missing it. 


Oz...Is like the best. Tell me they are one of the dates you can have

Lo unico negativo por lo menos para mi y algun que otro par de jugadores es que no tiene version en español, pero lo demas como la historia, estilo, musica, personajes esta asombroso ^^

Como esta novela no se a hecho viral aun??! 😭


Ello, quick question, will Robbie be one of the cryptids you'll be able to date?


He is planned as a date-able if we hit iirc 250 concurrent patrons on patreon


Oh thanks! Hope the goal is reached! :>

I really really enjoyed playing this game a lot, felt very wholesome. I adored it, I'll be patiently waiting for part 2. Also Madhouse is a cutie! And Atlas too... They are my favourite lovelies.


In love with Dad moth👁️👁️


10/10, still waiting for part 2! :

(1 edit)

hey umm I have been having some issues with this game the demo was great but everytime I tried to play the chapter one it always ran to an error at this point can you please do something about this error ?

Can you give us any more info about this error?


Hello, is there any information on when will part 2 come out? Approximately at the very least (Like this year or the other).


We're trying to get the update out this year!


Ok, thanks :D


Such an amazing experience! I love the characters and the action! Can't wait for part 2 to come out!


So darn awesome, I love the unique and overall creative style this vn pulls and I'm invested already! Can NOT wait for Part 2 and keep up the awesome work :D


Also Mr Ghost Boy is CUTE!! I wanna kith him

One of the coolest visual novels ive played in a while, quite excited for part 2!




severe framerate issues when i played through this. 2nd game ive encountered that has these difficulties that isnt 3D (ex. subnautica as its infamous for that).
outside of that i think madhouse mike is cool can i kiss him

Do I have to restart my whole game to change my dice? I chose the snake eye die and I'm really not liking it

(1 edit)

nope! if you go to the menu where atlas' dad is, you can change them from there by clicking the "i want to make some gameplay changes" and the "change dice" option will be there :) no need to restart the save, it'll save the change and apply it to all your play-throughs until you change it again (from my experience, at least)

oh ok thanks so much!

Such an amazing game madhouse definitely the best, please put it on steam. I would definitely buy.


God the Madlas boss music is amazing


goes unfathomably hard, I will be awaiting any atlas content with great interest...

Awesome concept and artstyle but pls put on steam too

(3 edits)

omg, i love this game!!, The art, the music everything!!, If i can afford something on patreon ill pay for it, but im too poor for even afford 1$... 

But well, i hope it's keep continuing on updates!


Me if i can't have a date with Atlas on a future update:

Atlas is a dateable!!



i need confirmation from the creators from this

but would mike have had e-kittens. I need to know. he seems like to type to have had many e-kittens.
