WARNING THIS GAME CONTAINS SURGICAL HORROR & BODY HORROR. THAT SOME PLAYERS MAY FIND DISTURBING. 

Throw yourself down the rabbit hole of this detective styled horror novel.

The first of the series, this disturbing bad dream of a CYOA is unlike anything you have read before.

A vast cast of characters, multiple endings, pieces to the puzzle hidden in every dark corner. Reading between the lines of this psychological thriller will make you feel like you’re in a David Lynch film and you’re all alone.

Depending on your point of view you will find it deeply meaningful or discordantly meaningless, but either way it will get under your skin.

Why should you explore this place? Because this is only the beginning of a mystery that is going to unravel across multiple games, some interactive fiction, some 3D and some… well, you’ll see…

Hi everyone, so we wanted to offer the game for free for people currently in isolation. If you can afford it and enjoy the game please leave us a small donation, it helps us out massively. 

If not that's also perfectly fine and we hope this project kills some time for you. 

We also love to watch gameplay vids to share the journey of Seul. (Alone) with you so please post, we watch all of them. 

Stay safe out there and please look after one another. Wishing you all the best, ever need to chat to someone we're here. 

PARANORMAL OUT...

Do you have plans to port the game to Linux?

Hey backpacker, currently we don't have any plans to port the game. But it's definitely a great idea.

This was very interesting. I only played through once because I had to stop to absorb what I'd experienced before I play it again. It was very cool and thought provoking!

RobBoberty, 

Cheers for playing! It was a great vid, awesome narration, I loved the part where you said you felt like you were lost in a lot of ideas. That is part of the purpose of Seul.(Alone) to tackle some ideas and work out the mystery behind it all. 

Keep up the great vids! 

Super intriguing, I don't think I have played anything like it before. I have played visual novels before, nothing with a choose your own adventure feel. I definitely can't wait to finish the adventure I'm in. Also I want to check out the prequel. I love when a game comes with some good lore. I'll also keep my eyes peeled for anything you may have coming in the future because this feels like it's just the beginning.

Just watched your video Zombikittie, yeah it is definitely a long read, depending on the pathways you choose. You're definitely right that there are multiple endings... We hope you enjoy the journey. Thanks for sharing it and also thank you for posting the video and kind comments. That's super awesome of you we are glad you're taking a walk Seul.(Alone). It is just the beginning... 

This was interesting, not my style of game but the world created in this still very interesting to me.

Thanks for playing Szamer! Yeh understandable text-based games are pretty niche. We are working on a 3D Horror/Thriller game based on this lore though, so keep your eyes peeled for that. It's titled IDLM at this stage. Cheers!

It's been a absolute pleasure watching all the playthroughs. 

It was definately a unique experience.

Thank you kat_ze for your video, it was very interesting to watch. We appreciate that you stuck through it as far as you did and shared your honest feelings and thoughts about it.

What a wicked sense of humour! I've tried a couple of different paths and I definitely loved the 4th wall angle, great atmosphere too!

Some of the language used didn't quite flow, or seemed a bit out of place but they were definitely a minority - good job! :D

Thank you for the feedback Calamitycalling, a most enjoyable video. Yeah you probably shouldn't have played in a dark room, Hahaha. It has been a pleasure watching you play it. Kindest regards,   

Thanks for they key, I thought it was ok, the sound is uber loud lol

Hey ShiroTheSorrow, short but sweet. Still an entertaining watch. We've noted your comments on the sound. Thanks a lot for playing, we appreciate it. (^_^) 

Thank you again for making this game and giving me copy <3 I definitely will play more but I'm undecided if I'll do it on video or just for myself lol I wanna leave a reason for someone to buy the game themself XD


Anyway this game was amazing, creepy and incredibly written. I died but I shoulda known better lol

That was a wonderful vid to watch! We're glad you enjoyed it! Thank you so much for doing a video on it, the greatest pleasure is watching people experience this world we've created. Take care and enjoy the rest of the story and pathways. In the end we are our choices.

Thanks for letting me know about the game I had a great time playing through it, I had no idea what to expect going in but I loved how thought provoking and different this game was. my play through here:

Hey FP, cheers for playing, we watched your whole playthrough it was awesome. The character voices rocked. I can't believe you read so much out aloud. Keep up the vids man you're super entertaining. Take care and be well. 

Appreciate it a lot! I'll have to check out that day before game when I get a bit great job on the game again.

Massive thanks to Bonez Playtime for checking out Seul. (Alone) The Entree. Cheers man keep up the awesome vids!

Great read through. 

**Would have been cool to see someone sit longer at the subway station, ah well maybe next time. lolz**

This game was really cool. I didn't really know what to expect from it, but I liked it!

Hey Mr Bobbly cheers for playing, short but sweet! Sorry mate for the late reply but an utterly entertaining watch! It was really good to see yet another part to the puzzle played. Another pathway has come to light with another clue to Peggy and what Seul is. Thank you for this! Cheers and keep up the awesome channel dude. 

Paranormal out... 

Kinda forgot to share my video here after posting it, but I finally have time to. First off, thanks for the free copy to check it out! I uh, didn't realize there was any autosaving happening, so I just ran threw the whole thing. I uh... not really sure how I felt about it? Not that it was bad, but probably it was just that this isn't a game that should be played all the way through in one sitting. It was just, a lot of reading, and that's not really my strong suit, and given how weird the font and the area around it is, it was pretty difficult to get through. It kinda just felt like it was really hooking me at the beginning, but to me that feels like where it peaked and after talking to that first girl it just gradually making me uninterested as it went on. The characters were pretty good with each their own distinct personality tho, so I really liked that. I hope you enjoy the video! 

Cyberwolf, cheers dude! Yeah a full on read is heavy as dude. Thanks for the feedback mate. 

I went into the darkness a couple of nights ago thinking everything was going to be fine as a brave and mighty warrior (that I am). I will admit though, the choices I have made brought me to a much darker and disturbing place than the darkness itself. Creepy!

Thank you Nick and the rest of Paranormal Games for the unsettling horror and I look forward to your future projects.

Cheers, TheLegendOfW for the kind words, cool vid man! We're glad you enjoyed it and we're happy to have watched you enter the dark. 

First of all, thanks so much for giving me the opportunity to sink my teeth into your game, I very much appreciated it!

I've played a fair few text-based adventure style games in my time, but this one really stands out because of the amazingly subtle use of background noise and sporadic images that help the imagination picture what's going on around you.

The story is compelling, and I found myself feeling genuinely claustrophobic and trapped at times, purely because of the atmosphere of it all. And as the story goes on and we trek deeper into the darkness, mysteries begin to unfurl and threads begin to unravel, which all leads to a very riveting end!

I will go through this game again and try some different options, but I'll let my current playthrough stay as is to tempt other people to dive in for themselves and try different things. I'm going to go have a peek at the prequel sometime too, I need to digest more of the story!

Keep up the amazing work, this was a real treat to play! =)

Thanks to Nick for checking out the first part of my playthrough and inviting me to post the other parts! For your eyes only, here's part 2!

An extremely entertaining watch! Cheers MikeyBlighe! 

One more part for your palates, and my time here is done. For now.

Exciting to watch our own game because of the way you rolled them out. A great watch! Cheers again MikeyBlighe! 

Had the chance to give this one a go last night. Really love the way this was written; it feels very much like a bad dream. The added background noises and music really established the unnerving atmosphere and when it did kick in at certain points it just-- (chef's kiss)

We just finished watching it Serien, 

You should seriously look into getting a job as a narrator, your voice holds so much character! Brilliant video and it was awesome to see someone enter The Booth.

Slowly the parts are all beginning to unfold! I wonder who will be the first to save Peggy and begin piecing the mystery together? (o_O)'

Thanks for playing Serien, keep up the great vids!   

 

This is the best text based game I have ever played. Once you start its hard to stop. Its alot of reading but well worth it. Besure to give it a try for yourself!!

we're super glad you enjoyed it! 😁

Cheers GG Gab for playing Seul.(Alone) The entree! We definitely appreciate it!

THE DAY BEFORE. The free part to Seul.(Alone) 

This was a really strange game!   I liked it.  The atmosphere was really good, and the strange characters made it all the better.  The only thing that I kinda had a problem with was when some of the music would kick in and be really loud.  Great game, and I hope you all the best in any future projects!

As much as I expected, this was amazing. It was just the right amount of unsettling that I had an uneasy feeling in my guts through out the entire game, but in a strange way it was enjoyable. I love how it was incredibly theatrical with such little visual effect. Definitely one of my favorites to date. 

Loved it was absolutely brilliant very creepy nice mood setting i loved the characters i hope you do make another

Cheers Silent Duck for giving the game a go. We really enjoyed watching it man! Stay SiC and keep up the awesome vids. We understand that a text based game like this is fucking hard to narrate and delve into the story at the same time. So a monumental effort dude!    

 Thanks again and we are truly appreciative. 

It was awesome i love visual novels and text based adventures i honestly think this game deserves more attention very unique it gave me the shivers at times

Massive thanks to Kay over at GitRad for giving Seul.(Alone) The entree a shot.

"Seul.(Alone) ticks all those boxes & is up there as one of the finer ‘choose your own adventure’ style games."
