i know the dillema, its no player online ? you are working on a new game so you don't have time to work on spookware ? honestly its very sad, im hype for NPO but that doesnt mean that i dont like spookware. is there a hope that after NPO we have new chapter ? and if not, will we have a update for all the glitch that people talk about, and it would be really nice if there was a dlc or a post to talk about all the things that was made and being cut abandonned, where the story was going, minigame idea, concept art, and other ? like a Behind the scene of all the game and unrealeased chapter ? this would be very kind i think

Absolutely depressing this game will not be finished. The devs really need to update the steam page so folks aren't going to buy thinking they're going to be getting more content.

Damn, really sorry to hear that.

I've played this game back in 2022, and I finished both Episode 1 and 2 while streaming it to my girlfriend. Back in September 2022, I was sick with Covid and I lost my voice for a week. But, I was still so compelled to play Episode 2 once it came out.

While the game has a couple of bugs here and there, the game has a cute story. 

I think I'm stuck and it may be a bug? I'm at the first chapter, where I need to find skeletons for the band. I think I found all of them but the game won't proceed. Also, the keyboardist doesn't show up in the music room even though I talked to him. Am I missing something? Do I need to do anything else for him to join?

i have this game from the ukraine bundle a while ago, but it only has episodes 1 and 2, chapters 1 through 5, and starting from chapter vi, it says that it's DLC. How do i unlock it?

I absoultely loved playing through this and it has a brilliant vibe, I did find the menuing for playing previous tapes back in the basement very confusing though

(+2)

There's a bug in Version 2.0, where chapter 2 doesn't unlock when it should. Leaving to the menu and coming back fixes it for me, but still thought I should let you know.

Is this 32 or 64bit?

I'm finally about to try this game after having it in my back log for a while and I am just wondering if the game is finished or if there is more to come.

(+1)

I bought this game in another bundle "Worthy of Better, Stronger Together for Reproductive Rights"so I do not know if it does not include the steam key, another question I have is that the game since I finished it never started again stays on the main screen, I uninstalled it and reinstalled, even deleting all data, but still does not work, I press all the keys on the keyboard but do not work xd

(+3)

OST on Spotify when?

Can someone help me i'm stuck on chapter 1 at the part where you have to push the trolley

i did it but what do you have to do next to get the band member?

(2 edits) (+2)

Wow those two new chapters were awesome! I particularly loved chapter V, it's my favourite one yet so many fun minigames!

(+2)

Is 2.0 a new version of chapter 1, or is it chapter 2? I want to know where I should start.

(2 edits)

It's episode 2! The update adds chapters IV and V

(+2)

I really enjoyed playing through episode one! Although I have to ask, will the future episodes come in the form of an update, or will you have to pay for them, as if they were DLC

episode 2 is available now as a free update, just download the game again and play!

(+1)

i can't buy this

(+1)

I absolutely can not wait for the future episodes! Such an amazingly crafted game, so much goodness!

One of the best games in the bundle! Very cute characters and relatable world. Reminded me of the ol Gorillaz site.  A few minigames are a bit too hard and a few a bit too easy, but I really enjoyed it overall.

(+1)

Really fun time, although admittedly sometimes I just wanted to get to the minigames (and doing a single minigame then going back to exploration feels like a bit of a tease). The last episode did it right I think, where instead of having one minigame-sprint at the end of the chapter, you have several spread throughout. Can't wait for the upcoming chapters.

(+1)

Really nice discovery !

(+2)

How have I never heard of this game before the Ukraine bundle!? This game is dripping with charm. I LOVE the aesthetic and the music. The gameplay is fun and varied and really fits the vibe. The writing and stories are perfect for what it is. I have been telling all my friends to check it out! I truly hope the other episodes are underway because I can’t wait to go on more adventures with the Skelebros!! Would love to see a concept art book or something too!

(+2)

Yay, glad you liked it!! :) Don't worry we're hard at work on episode 2 and other surprises. Thanks for playing <3

Hey so I've downloaded the game and extracted it and it shows the little creators thingies with the small images. But then it just turns black with the press return key to skip and  won't change what do i do?

Hey there, we're trying to fix this issue asap! Your save file got corrupted last time you closed the game, which is why your game isn't loading. We're adding a way for it to make backups in the future, but for now you can delete the file under:

GVREHJBDNKMLSW OMG THANK YOU. Spookware is one of my comfort games and the funky lil characters and minigames are one of my few solaces at the moment. Thank you for helping and and creating this amazing game <3 I wish you a good day and may whatever being higher than our own consciousness bless you with good luck as well >::3

Just beat the last chapter. What a fun game with some unique mini games, funny writing,  great art style/aesthetic and catchy music. Each episode has its own little mechanic based around the location/story, which makes it feel fresh and unique. Overall, I really liked this game. I'm looking forward to potential new episodes in the future!

(+2)

I'm still playing through this, but this is GOOD FOOD. love minigames and this scratches the itch perfectly!!!! lovely aesthetic, funny and hectic minigames, a cool story......what else could u ask for. thank u for making this!!!!

i liked it when righti got shoved into the ocean

(+1)

Gorey Warioware with a Paper Mario style overworld?  Sounds utterly bizarre in a delightfully disturbing way.

(+2)

Hey devs! Are Steam keys included with ownership through the Ukraine relief bundle? If it doesn't count I totally understand, but I wanted to double check!

Unfortunately they're not included with the bundle, there's a note about it under the purchase button.

I'm still playing this game but it's fun so far

So much personality! Loved the visuals, great sound and unique style. Please keep making experiences and thank you.

thank you so much ❤️ !!!

aestheticSo I hadn't played the original version, but was looking for some fun halloween titles to play this year for my channel. Thus far I'm really enjoying it! The humor is very witty and faced paced, and the games are just the right level of complicated that it's a challenge, but understandable within the time limit.


astethic

I'm very into the aesthetic of this, the sort of paper mario style world, but also the sort of over-the-top gore of the minigames. The lore seems to be that these games are representing classic horror movies the 3 are watching, hence the references, but the appearance of the games fits right in with this concept. They all have a very retro vibe, much like you were actually playing one of those old VHS games. I'm not too far in and I'd still recommend this one, as it highly over delivers on its promise of 7 bone puns.

Amazing and very cute game. Love the visuals and the gameplay. 

(+1)

spookware now has lore and a story??? this is amazing it used to be a mini game i used to play and now look at it!! so excited

So Spookware has some lore. Good job.

Spooky scary skeletons sending shivers down my spine 🎶

not sure if intentional or not, but thought you might like to know that on larger displays, the HTML cloud background is slightly cutting off on the bottom making some of the text hard to read on this itch.io page
