A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

THE STORY OF FORGIVENESS

Forgiveness is an escape room puzzle game themed on the seven deadly sins, with psychological horror elements that change based on a personality test.
After committing a terrible sin "God" is testing your worth on his world and putting you to the test.
When first playing the game you'll be taking a personality test to determine your sin.
You wake up in an empty room taken by Dr. Benjamin Smith, or as he likes to call himself "God".
Inside each and every room you will find extremely challenging puzzles that will test your abilities.
every sin has his own unique puzzles and room design to fit the player.
The only question left is will you get your punishment or forgiveness?

I am usually not very good at escape rooms but this one I got pretty easily!

My channel: youtube.com/jonathick

well it was just the demo :)

the full game will be difficult 

Would like to see this when its done.

Nice escape room ......game ....Looking forward for the real deal .....Keep up

(apologize in advance English is my second language) hi, just wanted to leave some feed back, also, keep up the great job, the game has great potential for it to be  a good puzzle game!.cool concept with the quiz in beginning. i got sloth lol. aesthetically it looks nice , a simple room, i like  the ability that most of the items in the room could be interacted with. Didn't experience any glitches, it ran smoothly. i felt the puzzle was kinda short and easy, idk, just me, i had fun tryna solve it, but it was kinda short. again keep up the amazing work guys! thank you for taking the time to read my little review, i did a small play-through if anyone wants to check it out.

Really cool idea using a personality test to determine the puzzle someone experiences. I apparently was too prideful to actually look for clues and instead tried brute forcing the puzzle lol. Had a fun time and looking forward to the full release.

Thank you for the demo. I found it a little short and lacking on the puzzles but I know it's just a demo and will (hopefully) be expanded on full release. I love escape rooms irl, so will keep an eye on this. Here is my playthrough on Twitch.

Super ready to go through all of the rooms.

Really enjoyed this game! Besides some stuttering issues and crashing, which might be because of obs, not too sure, it was pretty fun. My only suggestion is that a game, even a demo, needs subtitles if there's voice acting. I know there's already going to be in the full game, but maybe the demo could get a little update to include them. Anyways, can't wait for the full version! Hope you enjoy the video! 

Nice little puzzle game, 

though I solved the code without finding all the numbers haha

I'd suggest putting in some kind of thing to stop a player from doing that but it doesn't really take away. I look forward to the whole game!

Check your video :) 

around 8:27 - 8:28

you found all the code, you just didn't noticed it

It took me going through my footage for 5 more minutes to even find that! HOLY GIBLITS! GREAT GAME

 Do you have a date in mind for the  full release?

(+1)

Still not yet, hopefully around 4-6 months 

I'll keep my eye out for it!

Hey! Awesome game, were you interested in working with a publisher to get help with marketing and pr? If so, I work for one and we're interested in working together. Feel free to reach out at deana@sedoc.net 

The concept behind this was fascinating and a great hook. Obviously it still needs a lot more development, but I look forward to seeing it fully realized!

Thank you so much!

please consider adding the game to your wishlist on steam :)

This was a pretty cool little demo.  It has a long way to go, but I think that there are a lot of really interesting ideas in this game.  A strange and creepy voice really sets the mood for what is to come. 

Thank you :)

You are welcome! :)

Runs great on Linux :) A suggestion: add a controls setting where you can customize your preferred controls. I personally prefer crouching with CTRL, and I'm sure people with different keyboard layouts would like it too.

Ill be adding more settings for sure!

thank you for your comment!

I got Sloth. Seems legit.

Very nice graphics, it looks like a game I will enjoy. But it stutters badly in my system. For a while it runs smoothly, then it stutters again. (Latest Manjaro KDE)

Thanks for the comment!

have you tried to lower the graphics ?

plus if you can provide us with your computer specs it will be much appreciated !

Certainly!  I have a triple monitor setup and I run it along a full screen video on the second screen. If I run it with no other full screen apps running at the same time it seems to be running better but still not very smooth.

This was a really fun brain teaser!!! Thank you for recommending it to me!!!

I had a lot of fun! Can't wait for the rest of it!

Well played!

Nice game. I really enjoyed it.

Rate;5/5

watch video here:

Thank you :)

runs like molasses even at the lowest resolution and quality.

It may be a good idea to include less detailed versions of the objects used for less than state-of-the-art machines.

Can you please give us your computer specs?

We will look in to it :)

intel core 2 quad at 2.83GHz CPU,

Intel Q45/Q43 Express integrated video.

We just released an updated version, care to give it a try ?

works a lot better,

but there is a minor issue with interactivity:
the big closet door requires left-clicking to unlock, but I think it would be better if it requires right-clicking as that's the side you held the required object. (Or have it require the use of "E", as it's an interaction not an object pickup)

Thank you for your suggestion!

And im super happy the game works for you :)

So, not bad at all, but not great either. The amount of detail in the environment and that most everything was intractable was pretty impressive, the voice over was pretty good too. However the demo doesn't really suggest that this will be a puzzle game in any sense of challenging a player, rather a room you can only escape after you've looked everywhere and found the answer. It's kind of a hard distinction to make, but I didn't feel like I solved or earned anything by the end of it. Just that I looked in the right places. Detailed feedback at the end of the vid, I hope it's useful!

Thank you so much for you honest opinion!

I guess you were confused or maybe we weren't clear about what the demo contains , the game page says 

"at the moment the demo contains only the prolog. The prolog is very short and its just so you can get the hang of the game. the full game contains 7 different rooms with a lot of hard puzzles to solve!. "

You can expect extremely hard puzzles in the full game, the demo is simply showing the game idea and how to play kinda thing.

The demo is the prolog of the game, think about it as the "tutorial" :)

the full game is nothing like the prolog, you will need to figure out the answer and not just finding the answer

i can assure you that if you liked the overall idea and what you're missing is a challenge, you will NOT be disappointed .
