My windows defender stopped me from opening the game. Is it safe to ignore the warning? I am really scared of a virus

that tends to happen with all itch games i've downloaded. i ignore the warnings each time and haven't encountered any games on this site that have given me an actual virus yet. i've played some other games by this dev before and they seem safe, so you should be good!
almost a year ago, i played this and got a text immediately after the game crashed that my childhood dog had gone instantly missing and we never found her. i don't blame you for this but i just thought that was interesting. maybe make a game that doesn't spirit dogs away. or do. that could be a selling point maybe
I got to admit, I was impressed with this. Refreshingly original. You nailed it with its atmosphere and creepiness. I would love to see you take this concept to a full fleshed out game. Here is my blind playthrough if it helps.
I enjoyed how the story came together, with each location blurb, and the gradual reveal of the AI's persona. I like the duality of the uncertainty whether the AI is hostile or if the AI is just trying to console the player. After playing, I think the AI might be the player's guilty conscious and self-forgiveness.
The only thing I'm left confused about is the transition between the three environments. I'm not sure if the player is just in denial about the facts surrounding the accident or if the player was trying to plan a vacation to heal but their mind started to wander and wanted to revisit the site of the accident.
If I were to give constructive feedback, I'd recommend a main menu or settings panel in-game that allows the player to toggle fullscreen mode and set volume. An accessibility option to turn off field-of-vision panning (moving cursor to bottom-left causes camera to slowly pan bottom-left with a delay) would be a nice addition too, since it can be disorienting.
Thanks for sharing your game with us!
Soo good!! A different technique to be played made a differentiated gameplay great job, the most bizarre is that there are these coordinates in real life and there is no explanation about them makes everything very mysterious
remove the virus now
the game doesn't have a virus! here's my scan results with malwarebytes. I'm sorry to hear you got a virus, but it's not from this game.
dude are you new here?
This was a fun short scary experience. What makes it even scarier is that it's based on a real event. Overall an amazing game, keep up the great work!
what real event?
A fantastic short little horror game. Loved it, nice job!
THIS GAME IS SO COOL! EVEN JUST THE IDEA OF IT IS SO GOOD AND IM REALLY HOPING FOR A SEQUAL WITH MORE DETAIL AND MABYE A FEW ACTUAL PICTURES OR SOMETHING! EITHER WAY THIS WAS GREAT IF YOU WANT TO SEE MY FULL PLAYTHROUGH OF THIS HERE IT IS!p.s. thanks for reading all this!
i love the game, it was a very interesting experience and i love how it looks and sounds! awesome game :D
Ever seen a TV-headed creator? How about one that collects EXPLORBS?!
Take a look. Tune in.
I wasnt sure what I was expecting with this game but it wasnt that lol Im unsure what was going on but now I feel like it should have been me . Good little horror game!
why does it say that this could harm my pc? is it a mistake, or is this unsafe (i got a computer recently and dont want to have some kind of virus lol)
This was like your other game: a creepy little experience. Thanks a bunch!
This was a very unique and creepy game. I enjoyed it a lot. Keep up the great work!
Very cool game from a super cool Dev, 100% recommend!
vety good game, it was amazing
This game was amazing! here's what i did with it
Great game. It really creeped me out and I love how unique it is.
Here's my gameplay of it. It starts at 00:35
:( it wont let me download it
Love this! A google maps horror game lmaooo
awesome and super original!
That was so cool and original. I love that retro feeling of these old Windows programs
Loved this game! Felt a bit short, but I feel that might be fitting for a horror game such as this one. I could imagine it would eventually get bland just continuing through these locations.
I really did love this game because of how unique it was. Who can really say they played an indie game that was based off of Google Maps? That's crazy unique! I will however note that I was confused for the first few minutes of the game because I didn't know how to get the Discovery points.
I liked this! I had no idea, until after the I played, that this game was made by the same person as No Player Online!
Google maps gone wrong, amazing
Simple bur effective. I like that
I like horror games like this, where instead of following normal tropes to get youtube views, it is more ambiguous as to what the conflict even is at first, and it is creepy in a suspenseful way rather than an oh look ooooo spoopy gost did i get u did i get u!?!??? JUMPSCARE!!!! Woah! scary gam!
It hits more like following a disturbing internet mystery of some sort then a generic horror game where they are checking boxes "Ghost or something, check. Haunted house or some other cliche setting, check. jumpscare, check." And the exposition is not in a cheap scare or a *main character dies the end*
Super well made! Graphics and sound design were top notch. It didn't overstay its welcome either. Well done. :)
I didn't find it particularly scary but it was an interesting experience!
