I have a theory what if its genetics and her parents just haven't told her o. 0

I wonder what el looks like completely transformed?

this game is great you should definitely make  a sequel where someone else gets the thing and el from this game has to help them.

This is the best sequel idea anyone has suggested lol. There's no plan to return to Chondriatic at the moment but thank you for the comment! <3

I love your content and i hope that you continue making stuff like this thanks!

It's been about a year since this game has come out and I am still obsessed with it! The concept alone is great, but the art and execution are what sells this game for me, even with the short runtime. I really do hope to see a sequel someday with El's roommate and the aftermath of the true ending.

I'm also gonna check out your other game, Shedding Velvet. hope to see more soon!

Thank you for this super sweet comment! I'm so happy you still like Chondriatic! I hope you also enjoy Shedding Velvet! There's no plan for a direct Chondriatic sequel, but I definitely plan to do a lot more work involving body horror!

(+1)

could you please make it accessible through through the web

(+1)

Do you mean making Shedding Velvet playable in-browser? We tried, but unfortunately we didn't code it correctly from the start to play it in-browser, so it has to be downloaded.

i saw some gameplays it is very uncomfortable but very fun so i'll try it out so watching the gameplay is not better but playing for youself is

(+2)

It wasn't very scary, but it did make me uncomfortable.

Honestly, the 'BAD END' and the 'TRUE END' are basically the same? I didn't find much difference between the two.

Anyways, good luck!

As strange as it might seem, this game actually helped me come to terms with my own hypochondria. I confess to being constantly worried that [x] thing or [y] thing is going to happen to me. When the reality is much more mundane. Obviously that's not something that happens here, but in an odd way, this game helped me cope with my fears and anxiety. As for the game's narrative and atmosphere, it keeps this creeping sensation through out. And despite it's short length, it uses the time it has to really grip the players. The endings (which I won't spoil) also neatly climax the built up terror to those points. Very nicely done!

Not sure if you saw it on the bad ending vid, but I'll post it here.

Love the idea and premise of this game, but I'm curious - what spurred on the change between the bad ending and the true ending? In both of them, she reacts with the same horror - examining it means her scream "I HAVE TO KILL IT" and trying to disinfect makes her scream "GET OUT OF MY BODY," but she's very calm about it in the true ending. 

P.S. The roommate mentioned our M.C. by "El." Does she have a full name, like Elaine?

(+1)

This is a great game! I really liked the plot, could you make a sequel with maybe more characters? if not then i completely understand! It's hard to make games, even with assets already available.

one question : what is the protagonist’s name?

(+1)

El!

(1 edit) (+1)

huh, I thought it was jam.

so the protags name is El..

whats the roommates name then? Do they even have a name?

(+1)

i now feel itchy

(+1)

same

(+1)

Yeah me too.

(+1)

Love the art! I would have love seeing more of the art! Nicely done. I was streaming while playing this game https://www.twitch.tv/migcreatesgames

(+2)

Did anyone else get stuck on the mirror screen, or am I dumb

(+1)

That can happen if you click or use the arrow keys while on the mirror screen! your character walks away from the mirror when that happens, and you can only exit the mirror scene by clicking the same place you entered it from.

(+2)

Ok this game absolutely rocks!! You can really feel the urgency of the situation in which the character is in. The game makes it all  feel so real. I especially liked the inclusion of their roommate. Great game!

(+1)

This game is soooo good!

really cool game :DD but after i ran away from the girl  it just showed me black screen :(( 

yeah me too , have u figured it out or something ?

(+1)

I think you guys have to press the links? Like "Bad end" and "True end" the developer says the files were corrupted so you would have to watch the videos for the endings, I think

Yes the game should tell you what ending you get at the end!

i got true end

I have some mixed feelings on this.

The bulk of this game is amazing! But the endings seem kind of stale. (I also think you can't get either ending? And the only thing that separates them is just what link you click? Which is what threw me off the most.)

Within the game itself it should tell you if you got the bad or true ending based off the choices you made!

this was really cool, i also really like the art in this :)

(+2)

Good game, great at making the player feel uneasy. overall I really enjoyed it and can't wait to see more!

Thank you very much!
