This game was super creepy cute, and a fun little pick me up game when you just want a bit of a scare! Keep up the amazing work!


Wow,
Wow, what a totally cute innocent game 10/10 (3rd game)

the bunny toy are small and cute good job

Surprizingly disturging... well done!

Hungarian playthrough:

I was more confused than I was scared but the fact that none of this gets explained makes it more creepy. 

Here's my gameplay of it. It starts at 08:57

Cute bunni horror game.  

It's too cute to be afraid of that, aha

Does this have a virus or something? I'm wondering because im paranoid and the computer always says "Dont recognize, this might have a virus" so yea

(+1)

Windows for example always says this whenever an application doesn't have a recognized creator. So no it does not have a virus and itch.io scans files also for viruses. You can always go to virustotal.com to check any file you download :) These files are 100% safe

Stumbled upon this game, and I've really enjoyed it! I love the low-res artstyle, and the way the lighting feels, especially the candles. The apartment/house becomes creepier the more you explore, and the cute li'l bunny is an excellent, if a little spooky, critter! The limited space available to find things in also helped keep things interesting and easy enough to focus on the details! Excellent quality, and a fun little piece! 

I will also say, the subtle (and not so subtle) changes in the sound and world details as the storyline progressed felt really natural and weird. Very smooth transitions, leading to a quite tense atmosphere towards the end!

Thank you so much for saying this.

 The team really appreciates your kind words <3

We are deeply touched that you found our lil spooky game enjoyable!

Have a very lovely day!

I came for the cute bunny and stayed for the creepiness. It’s a good short creepy game, it’s really cute! I hope my gameplay did your game justice. I love how you made the game, and I look forward to playing your other games!

You did a great job! ♡

i like the game ,need more lore to this.

Short, cute and funny, loved it!

I'm new to YouTube and it would help a lot if you leave a like or subscribe if you like the content, also you can request a game by leaving a comment!

I loved this game.. just so dang cute with a wee bit of horror and uncertainty! I wish there was more lol great job Provisional!

Cute and creepy. It should be the second game in this video, but I will say I sent the knife to the backrooms on accident. Really fun though good job.

great art, I seriously love 3d pixel art and yours looked great. The soundtrack was awesome, from cute to "uh-oh, something's wrong". this was really short so I hope to see more of your works :3

Hi wanted to let you know that someone has reposted your game as their own. https://nathasa.itch.io/

Thank you for informing us! 

I believe itch.io had already purged their site XD

THIS IS MY FAVORITE GAME

Bunny.

I feel like I'm in a 16yr olds fever dream that's way too into gurokawa

I'm at edge most of the time thinking everything will turn realistic and horrify the shit out of me xD (played games like that before and I got scared shtless)

this game made me scared of my toy bunny...

I liked it, it was short but I still enjoyed it quite a bit.

too cute,i love it!

I enjoy it so much I love bunnies, even i made a game of a purple bunny too but this is muchhh better

Such an awesome and unique horror game! Loved the transition from cute to dark! Great job!

I loved the game, the OST, the graphics that remind of an old game... It's really amazing (and cute of course)...

(My playthrough video is in Brazilian Portuguese. Enjoy!)
