Hi there, I am a youtuber and I hope to get some support from you guys by leaving a like and subscribe at my channel.

Hey creator, I apologise for being late to the party! Thank you for featuring my comment about the game from the demo and I really appreciate your heads-up comment for me to play episode one of SLHOR. I really want to donate to you but I am forbidden from doing so currently at my age ;-;. For SLHOR to gain more popularity, I recommend you to email to youtubers like John Wolfe or Markiplier as they have a series where they play Free Horror Random Games. I hope they will be willing to play SLHOR and promote it at the same time while enjoying it.

Regarding SLHOR (Episode 1), I am still amazed by the storyline and the graphics of the game. I am loving SLHOR right now and I feel very honoured to play this game. The new characters being introduced into SLHOR immediately intrigued me as to what abilities they have. I really liked how each character appears to have a certain set of skills which would benefit the team and am really impressed by the subtle cliffhanger at the end of episode one which is attracting players to continue playing the game in order to find out what will happen next after the close encounter with the monster.

Some improvements could be to add more options for more player interaction in the game as even though I can see an improvement in letting the player have more options as to whether to kill or not to kill in the game, there is still a lack of player and character interaction. Another improvement could be fixing some misspellings and for my last improvement suggestion, is to add voice-acting. However, I do know you do not have the budget to add in voice-acting into the game so its technically fine as it is now.

Thank you for reading my comment. Creator, I really love your game and I really want to assist you in your journey to making SLHOR a popular and impactful game but I have yet the ability to assist you for now. I hope that you would email to more popular youtubers like I mentioned before. If they love your game, it would be a plus point to you as well :). I wish you good luck in your future endeavours bro! Send me another heads-up message if you are done with episode 2 :).

It really means a lot to me and I really appreciate it. :)

Hey there, thanks for letting know about episode 1.  What can I say, I loved it. The phasing of the story is good. I love the monster design, and the small choices you can make ingame. Keep on the good work
