This is certainly a strange VN, very captivating and interesting to read through!

Managed to pick up the game on sale, made some kind of bonus
Weird, I can't claim it, while it's free.
I just wanted to point out: I hate that Miss in red. Like, a lot. What a terrible person. The game so far is great though! I had a amazing time, shame my nose didn't appreciated it as much and I had to cut it short. Can't wait to play some more of it!
Thanks for playing- glad you're enjoying it! And, it's true, Daisy Fluffington is unlikely to win any personality awards... Sorry the game didn't agree with your nose- we'll try to put a patch out to fix that XD
Thanks for playing :) Good video- that's got to be the best reading of The Lady of Shalott I've seen here! Also, don't worry- there are definitely not >1,000 pages! I'd say you're halfway through but... prepare for puzzles...
Not the biggest fan of visual novels, but the game felt allright. Had some challenging puzzles. Only thing that was kinda overwhelming was the amount of text shown at once. i lost track of what i was reading more than i can count, but that might just be me and my reading skills.
Made a full walkthrough if you need some help with puzzles.
Here is the last part of your first game! Soon I will upload the Second game!
Hope this helps out!
Hi again! I have uploaded another part for your game!
For anyone wants to see the solution for the puzzle! It is by the end of the video (The start is about exploring the castle)
Awesome! To answer your question in the video, the Æ letter in Ælfflæd is from Latin and was used in historical English.
Also, I've only just realised you added your previous comments to the game page as well as the thread, so I'll add my reply again here for people :)
Latin was included in this game! That is awesome!
And yes! I tend to post on the thread for other devs to see it as well as you! And also in your game page so ppl who comes to your game get to see it too! Hope that is not that repeatable to you.
I am going to make a gameplay series for your game, and the letter being written below the video has been written for the original full video.
Hi Krunchy Fried Games, I have decided to play your first game; Bunny Hill Horror and here is the gameplay review video. I have enjoyed the story and the puzzles are really good and being made in a smart way! For sure I am less a fan of sexual scenes and I prefer if there were no naked women in the game but it is what it is! Here are some notes guys for your game! Also It will be great if you guys gave me a sub on my YouTube channel, I could really need all the help I can get to grow my channel.
- For sure I love the game with the funny moments you guys introduced in the game; it is really good quality visual novel.
- From a gamer point of view, you guys might want to add the option of turning off/on for activating hints in the game. I am sure you had many players saying to you how much the puzzles are hard to solve. So adding that option will make people more interested to finish the story.
- The atmosphere is really creepy and there is much jump scares! Well done on the horror theme.
- I love the sound effects and the background noise, from bird songs to random coughing.
- This is more a personal opinion! Some texts in the game have nothing to do with the story like those newspapers articles and random books! I get it that it has to do with giving backgrounds to the story, but I felt some of them gave nothing and it was waste of time to read them. Therefore, I would recommend focusing on texts and dialogues that they are not that long and that has to do something either with the story or to solve a puzzle later in the game (Which is much better and if those newspapers articles were used in the puzzles would have been great!).
- I found a bug in the game (you might find it around 1 hour inside the gameplay video).
The video contains a lot more than I can write here! I will try my best to play your next Part 2 game soon.
Glad you got it sorted! I enjoyed the first part- and look forward to more.
Thanks for your comments- you're certainly right about getting comments about the difficulty. I had a bunch of people on Newgrounds PM me for a hint about that painting puzzle! Sometimes over several days. At least there are some playthru's now so people can find the answers if they need them.
Yeah, there's a lot of reading (especially in the library), some of the articles are useful for back story and give you hints about what Oswald Mandias is up to, other text- like the poetry, I just threw in for a bit of culture. Have learned this lesson and the sequel is a lot more focused. And, yes, we toned down the sexual elements from the Newgrounds/ Gamejolt version, but it's still an underlying theme.
Glad you enjoyed the atmosphere and dribbles of humour. I also think mixing sound effects is the most fun part of game development, so it's good that that didn't go to waste!
hold up..... is it just me or is that a jacksepticeye reference?? :)
not me still stuck inside the castle :)
Very nice game. I like this kind of atmospheric games. I'm not the biggest fan of visual novels but I find myself playing some from time to time. I didn't know what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised.
I'd started the sequel before reading its description and realizing there was a first part :P. Maybe this is just me, but I sometimes prefer to play before reading it in order to let myself be surprised by the game itself (also with movies, etc.). Perhaps you could add a mention/link to this first part in the other one's title screen? Unless they may be played in reverse order for a different experience.
For anyone not hearing any audio (again, maybe just me :P), you have to allow autoplay in this site.
Also, I found a bug/bugs, not sure if you're aware of it or where I should be posting it. I'll try to keep it spoiler free: it involves going back to an outdoor area near the end after triggering the event there. The text reappears as if entering it for the first time and a related item gets highlighted but isn't actually usable. I tried to reproduce it on other playthroughs but I couldn't (more like speedruns by now, which might be affecting the result). Instead, now I always get stuck without choices and the last displayed text after trying to go north (west and third options loop as intended). This happens after the event and only after reentering. Reloading and continuing leaves me with the same text, no options and the initial bus background.
Thanks for your comments! Yeah, having written the thing and gone through it 100 times, it's tricky for me to judge what the best experience would be for someone who's new. I think Bunny Boiler stands up by itself- there are recap scenes and so on, although you'll clearly have a better understanding if you've played this one first. It's also a faster paced game and I think some people are put off by all the wandering around in this one.
Happy for bug reports here. I think I know which section you're talking about. We'll revisit this game at this some point and try and sort it out. Might not be able to do anything about it soon though (the coder's working on his own project- and I'm ploughing through our next one).
Cheers for the useful feedback :)
You're welcome! ^^ It is hard to judge your own creation. When I used to draw I often found it challenging to find even glaring flaws and was sometimes praised for things I wasn't too satisfied with. You get so familiar with it that it's difficult to think it could be different (for better or for worse).
oh never mind i couldnt see the slider
How Do You Get Past The First Part When You Ask The (King) What To Do, I honostly don't know what to do and i could really use a tip
So i just discovered your game via google maps... Novel approach to marketing, love it!
Brilliant! Yeah, I actually can't believe that worked...
Thanks for your comment :)
Weird to find a game set in stoke but I enjoyed playing it. Looking forward to Part 2 when its ready. Hows it coming along?
I would love for part 2 to come out as soon as possible !! I loved the game and had a pleasant experience!! Do take your time and make it an amazing experience!
The story could have a bit more plot incorporated in it or it could be more engaging or immersive. I also like how you reply to each comment!
The ambience and music added to the feeling. Really nice ambience.
Thanks for your comments and video- it was a good watch! We're hoping to put the final part out in October- which should fill in the rest of the plot elements :)
Just saying, my friend and I lucy aka bitchesman played this together, and we're absolutely gutted that we finished part 1 already :( we love it so much not even kidding. the humor, the characters, the subtle jump scares? Hell yeah! we love it all man, and we literally cannot wait for when the next part comes out, because WE. ARE. HOOKED. and we'll wait for how ever long it takes for you guys to make it happen :)
would would would recommend <3
hey thanks for updating me! lucy is actually coming over in around a week and we've decided to play it together! also if you really put in the wario voice i will literally cry! so excited!! :))
if you ever need a voice actress for wario im free, though i've been told my waluigi voice is near perfect! for real though, i'm so excited to play this next week!!
I know I just left a review but I could talk about how much me and my friend (Danika) love this game all day! We're both writers and artists and such a fun time playing this, it's unbelievable. If you have number one fans we are going to fight them because we cannot stop talking about this game, thank you so much for making a masterpiece. Much love<3
I liked how ya'll used the filter in your photo editor to add continuity between scenes -- Also, I'm a sucker for sound fx, so I appreciated the work you put into your audio environment.
I got stumped and couldn't play to the end, but I'm also not very familiar with text-puzzles.
Thanks for your comment- and for being the first to ever mention our sound effects! (memories of trying to figure out how to muffle sounds in Audacity) And, don't worry, the puzzles stumped a lot of people in this...
Hi there. I'm not sure if there's a bug? I've tried 00128/0128 in both the door lock and the crypt and it says it's wrong. Also tried the phone number with no success. Am I missing something or is there a bug?
You're very close but missing something. Try reading the note again but more carefully. Also, I'll link a playthrough in the Game Information, as a lot of people have been struggling with some of the puzzles.
I played it for a while, sound was a bit loud gotta tune it in my OS settings. Personally I'm not a fan of that genre of games, but have some thoughts. It would be easier to navigate if direction options had a pointing arrows. Second thing, I experienced a bug when I hovered (X) button on the top right it shows popup but I moved cursor out too quickly, and it was not oppening again after I hover. Did not played to end, I think with better graphics and more engaging story cold be a cool game!
