Thank you for playing The Hospital.

So good! Story was effective and well thought out without compromising the intended creepy atmosphere. The entire setting is unsettling by relying on the mysterious emptiness of the hospital itself and it worked wonderfully. Loved the ending as well. Will be playing and recording all past games from this developer as well as any future ones. Well done! 

Thank you for your kind words and for sharing your playthrough. We're glad you enjoyed The Hospital.

Nicely done!  The ambient music and sounds were spot on, just the right amount of jumpscares, and I liked that you are left to ponder what your fate actually was.

I BIT MY FINGER?!

(( Hey guys on a serious note, talking is one of the best medicine there is. Even though you talking doesn't permanently solve the problems, it definetly helps if you talk with someone with your problems. You never know, you might receive some great advice! Also, if you know someone is facing a problem, try to lend that person a friendly hand! : ) ))


Thanks Crux Game Studios for this amazing game. I really liked the story. I believe the ending is in such a way that it will be left unanswered and it is up to the player to imagine or think about the ending? Overall, great game!

(+1)

Hi there, thanks for playing The Hospital and for sharing your thoughts. Yes, we agree that it's really important to take care of one's mental health, and talking does help.

I enjoyed playing this game. The story was good and played through at a good speed. A lot of reading at the first, but the back story was important to the story, so I'm not bothered by it. 

Hi there, thanks for playing The Hospital and sharing your video.

No problem at all. The game was amazing and had a complete story that's hard to find in a lot of small games.

(+1)

Hey So my opinion about this game is I like the jumpscares they work very well if you wear headphones at a loud volume. The story kinda left me disappointed at the end but overall it was pretty solid. It was a lot of reading involved which isn't bad but you should voice act the main character that way when you read a paper the audio should play as well. 

Thank you for playing the game and for your feedback.

Hey Crux Game Studios, I really like your game concept, will you be bringing The Hospital to Mobile Platforms in the Future?

This was a ton of fun to record with my friend and it was hella spoopy, ngl. The topics weren't too much for me but I could definitely feel the weight behind them.

Good stuff, the topics scared me more than the jump scares... but sometimes psychological is better.

Very creepy. I think the story was really good. Awesome job. Sometimes I think the short horror games are the best. Just like the short horror films on youtube.

(+1)

I agree!

Thank you for the kind words; we're glad you enjoyed the game.

This horror is not bad, but very raw.

Many flaws, illogical game mechanics and screamers.

All this mistakes should be improved or taken into account for the future.
