Around me, crimson-stained leaves. Synopsis Spoiler "You thought this was a good idea, didn't you?" Hidden deep in the forest and surrounded by mountains, there seems to be a place called “Crimson Leaves”, described by urban legends as an abandoned town forgotten by time and stained by a tragic past. Though the town’s existence is discussed, this won’t stop a group of five teenagers who want to visit this place and have fun. But what they don’t know is that they’re making a huge mistake: soon, a violent feeling will start to grow in their minds: "No one is to be trusted here." "Around me, crimson-stained leaves" is a short videogame with horror, suspense, exploration and point&click elements. Shortly after entering the abandoned town of “Crimson Leaves”, the protagonist, Alan, will find himself alone as all of his friends have gone missing. While exploring the place, he will realize that there is something terrible going on, as he meets a strange girl who warns him about the dangers of the town, and shortly afterwards, he witnesses a murder and realizes the lives of everyone are at risk. Will Alan and his friends survive this terrible experience? Is there any way to escape from the town of “Crimson Leaves”? Game Mechanics/Features: This project was originally made for a short game contest, so it is very linear. The estimated length is approx. one hour, and there is only one ending, but many ways to die. Multiple scenes during the game will require the player to react quickly in order to survive: hiding from a threat, struggling against a character, or controlling the protagonist’s thoughts will be required. Most of the “panic moments” in the game use a mouse system: you’ll have to choose options and click icons or text on the screen, fast and repeatedly in some cases. The game is available in English and Spanish. Characters Spoiler Main Characters from "Around me, crimson-stained leaves". This story takes place during the first of October of 2015.
