Log in with itch.io to leave a comment.
and this is my first time as well
uhh dave im downloading one of you games and i dont know how to download the game. mind if you explain on how to download it?
Click the download button, and if you wish to skip past the donation screen, click the "no thanks, just take me to the download" button, then download the game. Once installed, use an unzipping program like 7zip or Winrar to unzip the .rar, then you should be able to launch the game within the folder.
will a potato pc run it?
This game is a true gem! Idk why I haven't found it earlier..
can you add custom mode to the game at some point?
Yo Can you Explain How in The Monster (The Blob lol) Gets away from Salmon And When im trying to go to The Armory room He Spawns Right Infront of me
The blob can use the small vents high up in the walls to spawn near you when you pass by them. Can happen every once and awhile, lol.
when i try to download the game it this "an error has occurred during the installation process" should i use the itch.io client or web browser
Hmm, you can try one or the other to see which one works. Not sure why it'd cancel out of the download.
this also happens with other games micro horror arcade's boofie's bunker also doesn't work but some games do work example dora is dead works idk why, i think it is something wrong with the client maybe when these games release on steam i will be able to play this game.
Download link doesn't seem to work like the comment below me said, it doesn't open when i try to launch it from Gamejolt or here.
Did you unzip the .rar using winrar (or any unzipping program)? You can't launch the game when it's still zipped.
hey, the game won't start, no error message
nothing my cursor will say its busy for 4 seconds but then nothing
anything i can do to fix this?
That's weird? Not sure why your PC would refuse to launch it, never had that happen before or seen it happen to others. Sorry I can't be much help! D:
I got it working :D
I don't know why but if it was downloaded from the itch or gamejolt client it wont run at all
its only if you download it from the site, not the launcher
(sorry i'm bad with explaining things :/)
Ah gotcha, glad you got it working!
How did you get it to work, because im having the same issue you are
Hey dave will there be a page for around the clock or a steam page because im just asking
dave i wanted to say this game is amasing not just this game all of your games [p.s i am a huge dave microwaves games fan]
WHY DO YOU MAKE THESES GAMES THEIR SCARY LOL
Weird. i cant download this game for some reason. Shortly before the download is done it just stops and gives me the following Error:
rar: an entry cannot be decompressed (Strange Terror From Beyond The Stars (64 Bit)/Strange_Terror/Content/Paks/Strange_Terror-WindowsNoEditor.pak)
i have Winrar installed as it seems to be an issue with Rar. but im not sure
Dave said that you need to exrat the file
Easy solution unless the Data is nowhere to be found. neither in the download folder nor anywhere in my Itch folders.
yo i have the same problem
nice game i played it
are you going to make a custom mode update eventually?
i know there a hard mode it called 1v18 oh gummy god
Where are the random spawns for the wrench?
The game doesn't run because a 3D3 file is not available, like what? Where do i find this thing?
Ah damn, haven't heard anyone get the D3D error in a long time. There is a fix for that tho. https://www.reddit.com/r/playark/comments/7l2qcw/aberration_unreal_engine_is_exi...
Hey Dave, so there is a THING i just can't forget about this game, THE FORK... Like, WHAT THE FUCK was THAT ending for? Couldn't be some space for another ending? I just can't stop laughing my ass off when i see the ending.
Oh, BTW. When will we get a new Strange Terror game? Any plans for a plot? Any special guest from a very known game or iconic horror movie? Whatever is in your mind, just say it!
i cant play with rar's
You need to extract the .rar folder using winrar in order to play it.
you say that all the time dave i think we get it
explain how to do that. that line of text is not obvious you know.
how to do that is the question dave.
edit: its says the file is corrupt the pak file
You download winrar, it's an unzipping program. Once you have Winrar on your PC, you can unzip .rar folders by right clicking and extracting the .rar to turn it into a folder you can access.
Probably your magnum opus, this one has actually very quality cutscenes, story, puzzles, and scary but still to slow to be scary monsters. Hearing CoryXKenshin in voice acting was hillarious, i didn't expect that. It goes like your every other game, but it is more polished and actually really well made! Great experience but add lower graphics settings, it still lags a lot on low end computers.
so i just found out that you acually cant cheat to beat the game instantly, so this could take a while...
so i downloaded this and played all the endings, so i thougt but then i watched a youtuber play and he killed the monster with a gun he got at the armory but i play 10 times and i could not find the keycard i think it's not spawning so this is ether a bug or i keep on missing it when it's in front of it. dave plz help
The keycard should spawn in one of two bedrooms, a closet or the men's (or women's) bathroom.
This is a great title, and very much recommended. Really cool developer.
One problem I have as of the past few weeks is that I cannot install it though. Is this an issue on my end, or perhaps an error with a recent update by Dave?
Hmm, was there an error message? Were you able to extract the .rar folder and launched the application but got an error?
No message, Mr Microwave. I press the install button, and soon as the download is about to finish it just stops and the button still says "install" instead of play. I have deleted the folders for the game too. This is the only game I cannot download. I can download and play your other games perfectly fine
THIS WAS SO SCARY I MADE A JUMPSCARE COMPILATION
We had such a fun time with this game and it scared us a LOT more than it should have for how cute the graphics are :PThanks.
I finally got to guts to KILL THE MONSTER
im kinda suprised that you actually worked a bit on this game after such a long time, and that secret where you can summon all the monsters, thats so hard because they're EVERYWHERE
This game reminds me of all those bad sci-fi movies shown on Mystery Science Theater 3000.
Speaking of which, are there any hidden MST3K references in the game?
Played this as part of a 3 free indie horrors and this was easily the better of the 3. Thoroughly enjoyed this game, although the ending i got made me look like and asshole, at least i beat the game! lol. You can checkout a more in-depth review and my playthrough of the game below!
HYPED FOR THE 10th
Maybe you could make it so that AI controlled allies follow you and do random tasks
That would be cool, but I would save that for Strange Terror: Ultimate Edition. A game I plan on making sometime in the future that's basicly a big Strange Terror game compiling content from both this game and the sequel, along with new never before seen content and gamemodes.
Maybe We should have it team based (idk just a suggestion)
You mean like co-op multiplayer? If so, I wish I could but multiplayer in Unreal Engine 4 is very difficult to program. Eventually I do want to try overcoming the challenge but right now my priorities are just making singleplayer horror games, y'know. But I would totally love to make co-op horror games in the future though, it would be a blast to work on.
No i mean characters you can switch to
Ah, as cool as that would be, I don't think it'd be possible for me to do. Maybe I could try doing something like that for Strange Terror: Ultimate Edition (Release date is unknown, could come out next year or the year after, who knows) since I'm no longer updating this game.
Will be strange terror from the deep on steam???
