Had a ton of fun playing through this weird eerie body horror game!


Played this one again for the demo disk, the art is so cool

Full Demo No Commentary 


Hey! I played this in the Spectral Mall Demo Disc and included it in my roundup video. Starts around 5:52 (if you only want to see this game). Best of luck with the development! 

Checked this one out! Pretty unique premise and style, but unfortunately I couldn't get too far into it! Regardless, I look forward to trying it again for the full version. :)

I can confirm this is an old build! The newer version has fixed a couple bugs present in that build, but thank you for playing :)

Oh excellent! I'll try and play a newer build next time. :)


They Speak From The Abyss was an absolute nightmare of an experience in the best sort of way. Everything from the characters, to the sound design, and even the environment were masterfully crafted, leaving me absolutely sick to the gut.

I loved it. Can't wait for the final release.


I LOVED IT! Can't wait for the full game!

Each and every update is a great gift! I can't wait to see more, it's so good already! And I can't wait to see the development on Sophia and Vanessa!


Thank you so much! I'm very excited to show everyone what I have cooking up in the future!


I said it before but I cannot understate how amazing the art is in this game. 

I know you already saw my criticism so I won't go too into that. I wanted to say though, I did mention the game OFF during the playthrough. Now that I think more about it, this game (so far) really just reminds me of OFF all around. Kinda like if OFF didn't have combat. The thing that kept me interested in OFF was the battle mechanics. Not saying this game needs battles, but if there was some form of active gameplay mechanic like that then I think I'd have a far better time. 

A demo isn't really enough time to get invested in characters so I feel that issue will be fixed simply with a full game release.

Really looking forward to seeing what becomes of this project in the future, good luck!


The atmosphere in this teaser is masterful; I'm incredibly excited for the full release!!




well this game is beautiful and disgusting as the sametime, i love it

Creepy game, loved it!


Glad you liked it :)

I had a great time with this game and can't wait to see how  it is when it is fully released. Keep up the great work.

I really love the whole vibe of this game. Can't wait for the full!! I especially liked the audio design

Hi there ! Thanks for this demo, the ambience is interesting, unsettling, eerie ! 

The graphics are really original and are truly unique in a way. And the sound design... disturbing ! :D

Very curious about how the rpg mechanics will fit in it (maybe in a dungeon crawler style ?) but can't wait to see the whole picture !

Absolutely loved this demo. Can't wait to see more!


Had a blast, a unique game that adds hope for humanity

This game was excellent, beautiful, terrifying, and gorgeous. This game deserves WAY more love than it has gotten. Such a unique, and pretty, whilst also being quite disturbing title. Definitely need to go check this one out if you haven't yet!


Loved the setting and characters already. Looking forward to the full release of the game once it is available.

Very promissing! Love the art style and the possibilities to go with the story. Greetings from Brazil!


more please ty

I love the way this game looks. It's got that artistic touch you don't see very often. You've got a knack for suggestive imagery and it all comes across incredibly creepy. I really hope there's a ton more to the gameplay than what we saw in the demo because I'm super excited for the full release.

Thanks for making games!


This was really awesome. I'm super excited for the full game.


Hi!!! I have been following along all the art on twitter and have been so excited to sit down and play this demo. I loved the sound design and the creatures and dialogue. Also cant get enough of Killer 😌❤ Beautiful work :)

Thank you so much! I'm glad you enjoyed it!!


Is it just me or is that game looking kinda



what is the graphics engine used ?


I woulda loved a strafe move because it's a bit hard judging when to turn so you gotta turn again, go forward then turn once more if you misjudge.


So I kind of broke the game near the end of my video, but oh man this was so cool to see and go through! Really enjoyed what I got to see! Looking forward to more! 


'I kind of broke your game' is a scary thing to say to a dev a week after release lol

Thank you for playing, though!


I apologize for the scare, I am still trying to figure out how I did that haha and you're welcome! 


Great demo! Looking forward to the full game!

i really love the demo!! i hope to see more of the killer in the full game tho, i cant wait to play it!!great job<3


Killer is one of the major characters in the full game. You'll be seeing plenty more of him. :)




I love the weird atmosphere of this game and its characters, reminds me of a favorite ps1 game. I really appreciate the strange vibe of it all but it got too creepy for me haha. Great job! :)


pretty good the whole thing reminds me of an early megaten game were you inspired by those games


Love that movement system bro, that is epic!


Only cool girls like me appreciate grid based first person movement.


The demo of this game is very well done. The mystery and terror of the abyss is brutal and the visual art is excellent. Good job :D
