This was a phenomenal psychological horror experience! Great pacing with the story telling, a few good scares, and gorgeously creepy environment. Here's my playthrough:

I found Avarice to be one of the better horror games I’ve played recently. It’s nice to have a story and characters you can attach yourself to, even if they aren’t the focus of the project. I was admittedly a little wary at first of the “psychological horror” game tropes that litters so many scary games now, but this one has a nice twist to the formula that goes its own way. I’m especially impressed that the game was made by students; Avarice is better than some horror games made by industry veterans. Excellent work, I look forward to more!
Thank you so much for your kind words! We sincerely appreciate it, and we're so glad you enjoyed it!
Really interesting game, Good to see that P.T inspirations are still going. Loved the concept of it. The atmosphere and sound creepy and well made, Would love to see more games like this
I really like the game. Atmosphere was there and story was interesting. Nicely done.
This game had a clear inspiration from PT, but works it around into it's own narrative and uses the loops to progress the story in an interesting way.It's a great student project, and I'd love to see what you could do with a full development cycle.
Buen juego, me gustaría que apoyen mi canal, por favor suscribirse a mi canal "Placebogamer, que tenía un buen tiempo jugando a este juego, gracias .../Good game, I would like you to support my channel, please subscribe to my channel "Placebogamer, I had a good time playing this game, thanks ...
I loved this demo! The game looked amazing and did a preety good job of unnerving me. I can't wait to see the full game. If you are interested in my gameplay I'll link it below.
Really cool game! Had fun trying it out!
hi, big thx for the great demo. greetings from rosti
Played this over the weekend and loved it, atmosphere was spot on and dialogue was nicely done hope you guys do well in the future good luck!Heres my playthrough of the game!
Very well done! I enjoyed this a lot!
This game truly had pt vibe, i also find similarities with layers of fear! I kind of rushed this game and i wanna apologize it. But i still enjoyed! I liked how the rooms were telling stories as well like the red room.
I also played this to my channel
Gave it a go, couldn't find it spook though.
I did upload a video of this but something about copyright came up underneath which i have no idea about so deleted the video haha 1 hell of a game though!
You should have no issues with copyright. The song is old enough to no longer have any copyright associated with it, and is now free to use, the copyright notice you saw was most likely just stating the name of the song and it's origin. Thanks for playing though!
Awesome game. Great graphics and atmosphere, and I really liked the story, the guy narrating had a good voice for it.
Did have an issue clicking on door handles though, it was very picky on the position. Same with opening the suitcase.
Hey there, just wanted to say that this was a really fantastic little game; especially as a student project! The story you managed to tell through both the narration and the gameplay was really well thought out. I really appreciate the themes involved and the questions about what's literally happening and what may be more metaphorical are great.
I hope you continue on with more games, it's obvious you guys have tons of potential and a great grasp of gameplay as story telling! :D
I enjoyed the concept twist of the P.T-esc. Few bugs here and there but other than that, I really enjoyed my twenty minutes with the game. Though that ending was... interesting.
I like the overall implementation of the game it has a good atmosphere and it felt like a cohesive experience.
A few suggestions:
-Disable the SteamVR and Oculus plugins. With them enabled the game will start steamvr and set the the audio source to a VR headset if one is connected. This will also cause performance issues.
-When exiting pause screens set input mode to game only to capture mouse after closing the pause menu.
-The game resolution was set to higher than my default resolution so a lot of the screen was cut off including the subtitles.
-The Ra statue has no geometry underneath it so when you rotate it you see through the mesh.
Thank you. This is actually really good feedback for us, we're obviously still learning so thanks for letting us know! These are all amazing tips.
Hi, I've played this game and think it is really well done! However I do have some feedback, I understand that it is a student project but it would be nice if there was more use of self - designed assets. I believe you're using the Horror Engine for UE4 to make this game, One other thing that I noticed is that the UI is buggy this is because you have to re-configure it in the blueprint system. Other than that very well done hope you get a good mark for the project!
Thank you! Unfortunately we do not have much training in 3D modeling as we are game design students, so we focus more on what makes a game good and fun! We used a lot of premade assets, but ensured to give them sufficient credit and ofcourse paid for said assets. Thank you for your feedback! Im glad you enjoyed it overall :)
i have a decent pc, the turning is too slow, and the movement is somewhat laggy, and no offence, its a pretty stale storyline. still the graphics were pretty cool
Thanks for your feedback, keep in mind this is a student project and we only had two months. :)
Gracias por este juego, le falto un poco de luz, magnifico.
No hablo Español, but thank you for playing! Hope you enjoyed :)
Gracias por un juego tan bueno, quiero que cuando hagas más juegos, cuentes conmigo para jugarlos, quiero que si tienes amigos que me puedan proporcionar juegos o códigos clave para jugarlos, sería genial, mi correo electrónico davidlobo2009 @ hotmail, es, mi canal de Youtube; https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7Ze0stcmF5zKGiRwGj2RJA?sub_confirmation=1 saludos amigo.
Really great game. Had me looking off screen by the end.
Wow! I really enjoyed playing this. I loved the music and look of the game. Great Work!
The Best Horror Games have always been ones that weren’t specifically just jump scares. Ones that make you feel uneasy and paranoid constantly are the best ones. Great piece of work developer, keep up the fantastic work
This was good. The P.T style never ceases to spook me! Hope you enjoy the video I made :)
Very impressed by this my dudes, cannot imagine what you could have pulled off in 1-2 years :D
I enjoyed my time with Avarice! Few games make me swear, but this one got me on edge. 😱 As a student project, this is a great P.T.-type game!
Nice game, loved the P.T Style you had on this game, graphics were finger lickin good (I just cringed lmao). Storyline was great, loved the part when the wife was drowning...., the sound effects were prestigious especially with the mini jumpscares overall it was a excellent example on what a P.T Inspired game could turn out to be, in other words it was great, hope to see more horror games from you guys!
Wow, thank you so much for your kind words! Hopefully we'll get the chance to make more :)
the game impressed me so much, it delivered fear and horror without using a creature chasing you, It's fear of the unknown, I love the PT style
Awesome Game, it really got me multiple time. Great Job Dev I appreciated your hard work. Hope to see more stuff like that :)))
Just add a .rar file if possible....Extract and play will be a better option.
This game was a pleasure to make, I hope everyone enjoys playing it, as much as we did making it.
I am truly proud to be a part of making this game!
