'LoneLy' is a game with a heavy atmosphere and psychological horror comparable with the old Silent Hills and Resident Evils and is created with the RPG Maker VX Ace.
What is 'LoneLy'? It's a game based on true events and the development was started in 2014.This period was a healthy progress for myself to handle my own badly past and to show and evolve my skills for making horror and videogames. I'm in love with retro games from the 90s-era.
The old Silent Hill and Resident Evil games shaped me and gave me so much inspiration that I'm able to make my own 'perfect' game. A german full version was officially released for approx two years but I removed the old one to recreate a better game that is still in development. And now, here we are with the Director's Cut of 'LoneLy'.
After a bad and traumatic event, Timothy Lloyd was forced to move back to his family. He was welcomed happily but this joyful moment was short. Something seems to have changed since his relocation: Tim isolated himself from the others and a gloomy feeling of loneliness shrouded the whole family and was draining their vitality.
By the time when Tim realizes that something's going wrong he tries to escape from the cage of solitude and tries to figure out the mysteries which are responsible for the strange happenings at his home. However, the deeper the path he goes the worse and crueler the horror gets, which he himself and his surroundings are falling prey to.

- Feel the dense and thrilling atmosphere and make a dreadful journey of chaos, horror, sex and violence

- There are optional ways that invites for explore and discover to raises the replayability
Of course you think what comes next after Episode 1 - The DesCent? Two more episodes was planned in the past for the german community. But my skills grew so much in development and I decided to make a cut with this old version and tell the story in a remake of LoneLy. I want to create a better and unique main look without any typical RPG Maker resources. I have to make my own graphics an pictures to tell my story in the way I wanted to. So in the end, my fans and upcoming horror game players will get Episode 1 as a free version when it's finished. After that I make the beginning to create the remake as a commercial version with all including episodes and special content. More upcoming news will appear soon.

I really want to give your game a go but having problems just opening the game. When I tried opening 'Game' it says Failed to load archive. When I tried 'Lonely DC Demo' it says Unable to find file: Audio/BGM/Echoes (Tims Desire).
