I got to the (looking for players) part then my mouse randomly got locked in the game, i had to actually open task manager and end the process to get out of the game, is this normal?

My character was frozen, i couldn't do anything.

Very cool, lot of surprises

A very well made game with an atmosphere that directs you to a great experience. Would recommend anyone with a few minutes to crack on with the game. Also, check out me playing the game in a unique film-like manner. 

I play this game a while ago. Its a very interesting game to play. Here is my video 

i like the game it was a lil creepy enough. 


im sorry i couldnt tip you, im broke and have no job :(      and nice game!

Absolutely no worries, please don't feel the need like you have to! Thank you for playing :)


The atmosphere is good, but the whole "raise the dead" bs just ruined it

I'm so confused... It's an awesome game it really is! But after I get kicked out once and konami my way back in just to finish the game again and get kicked, nothing happens. not the video i've heard others say was played. no other ending. just go through once, he explains things, get kicked. go back in, he says leave us alone, get kicked. repeat

Same here. Capped the flag 3x, server owner kept asking not to, game shuts down. Nada after that. Restarting it didn't do anything different, other than a blank server list. idk what I'm missing here.


This was definitely an interesting game and experience. If you are a code hunter, you will absolutely love this game. I definitely enjoyed the atmosphere and the gimmick, but I am not a code hunter, which left me looking up what to do next a couple of times. However, that doesn't discredit the effort that went into this game, and the interesting concept that it is. Definitely an interesting project!


No tienes alguna version de 32 bits?

I see videos and articles about how when you finish the main game, you enter the Konami code (up up down down left right left right B A) that it unlocks servers and when you rejoin a server you get different dialogue and a different ending. I entered this code and rejoined a server and nothing happened. Am I doing something wrong?

I can´t open the game :( 

When I try to open it I just have a grey screen and nothing happens!

Try to find a VHS tape somewhere in the middle and click on it

I hear sounds when I click somewhere but my screen is still grey

I tried downloading and playing your game but when I start it, there are no servers in the list and I can't even get to the gameplay, please hel

is this a joke?

no this is not a joke, there's literally no servers on the list

Hey, this is expected behaviour after playing the game once. Just enter the konami code to reset your progress. (up up down down left right left right b a

I tried the same code you told me and it still didn't work I think your game is broken


At the beginning of the game, I thought it was the result of shooting. His wife is dead. I saw a head on my head, heard my feelings, fell to the bottom of the valley, and the end was like that... In exchange for soul, I found the third and fourth endings

This game was great, I loved the subtle shadows you could see out of the corners of your eyes, and the overall concept is original and unique.

I really enjoyed it. Perhaps I‘m overthinking it, but I love the ‚open‘ ending. Feels as if something stays with you. 👻 I think it‘s special and can‘t understand most of the negative voices here.

Is there a mac version i can download, it doesn't work even if i use win

I don't think so, try contacting the devs


[spoiler alert]

A fantastic premise but it feels like the developer wasn't quite sure what to do with it and didn't understand why the initial setting is so unsettling. The uncanny feeling of there being no one where there should be other players, the melancholy of that absence and the hauntological aspect of playing a game from the past where there is no one is deeply disturbing but then the developer completely shatters that atmosphere by bringing in a silly boogie man monster and then overexplaining the setting -- once the mystery of the game is lost, so is the unease, especially given how cliche and frankly ridiculous the "using the game to resurrect my dead wife" premise is.

There was a fantastic point in the game where gramophones were creepily appearing and playing Caretaker-esque ballroom music, and ghostly figures were fading in and out of view -- this had me on edge. I love the initial premise of this game, I just wish it had been executed better.


The horror of what the player does when they think there are no consequences is much stronger than a jumpscare ridden mess which would be even more "cliche"

Stop throwing around buzzwords that you barely understand just because you wanted another generic horror game and missed the point of this one

help plesase 

What is it?

jogo do cellbit

me play it on chromebook


Thank you for making the game and taking me back to my Unreal Tournament past.

It was a heart pounding and fun experience. i found it unique and even though there is a small amount of dialouge, you can understand the whole story of the game. also, i like how the devs program the game to be "broken" at the end. more power to the devs and this game!

nice game

No quiero molestar ni nada, pero no tendrás una versión de 32 bits?

make it for mac please

Although No Palyers Online has a fantastic paranoia inducing premise, it is unfortunately underexplored, over explained, and often unfocused. 

which game engine this game is run?

Unity engine

Easter eggs for anyone who needs them

WTF IS THIS GAME!!! AMAZING!! Good job man, you are the best, This is my gameplay in Spanish 

I loved the game, thank you very much.


konami code guys! 

Some people have said it is not working, so here is what you need to type using the 'ARROW KEYS' 

up up, down down, left right, left right, B A 

I hope this helped some of you!

This was extremely well made! 

It was scary and disturbing, there was a bit of suspense in some places, I really enjoyed it!!!

up up, down down, left right, left right, b a

Omg, for some reason my first reaction to getting kicked out was putting the konami code and it actually worked. That was really fun.
