DISCLAIMER: EMPTY HEAD contains violent and bloody elements. This game is the result of the author's creation and imagination.
[Psychological Horror - Mystery]
I've been inspired from other indie horror games such as The Cat Lady and Downfall (Remigiusz Michalski) and from my love for the psychological horror genre. The plot is entirely made up by me.
In the small hamlet of Elkedor lives the Baker family, isolated and almost ''inexistent'' for the townsfolk. Arold, family man and lawyer with no fame, enters in a difficult time of his life between alcoholism and a falling apart marriage. His days began getting filled by drinking more and more, while his wife and their two children, Sarah and Thomas, started to get detached and cold. One night the two went missing. Desperate at the thought of losing them he decided to investigate until, thanks to clues found in the house, succeeds in finding a hidden passage. Lies, compulsions, and hatred are the summary of what underlies in the ambitious Baker family.
The full game features:
Blood | Alcohol Use | Disturbing Elements
Multiple Endings (True Ending - Neutral Ending - Bad Ending)
1-2 Hours of Gameplay
!!! SPOILER WARNINGS !!!
Suicidal thoughts, Depression, Mentions of domestic abuse, Scopophobia, Organs
Arold Baker: Laura's husband and father of Sarah and Thomas. Brown hair, mustache and beard, thin, brown eyes. Our protagonist. A realist and friendly man, but sometimes he may seem rude.
Laura Baker: Arold's wife and mother of Sarah and Thomas. Short black hair, thin, blue eyes. An insecure and weak woman, but she would do anything for her family. She can't stand lots of things, including her husband's drinking problems.
Sarah Baker: Arold and Laura's daughter, young sister of Thomas. Black hair tied up in two small ribbons, thin, green eyes. Sarah has her head in the clouds half the time and shows no emotion whatsoever. Considered ''The mute girl'' in the hamlet. Her favourite plush is a teddy bear called ''Leo''.
Thomas Baker: Arold and Laura's son, big brother of Sarah. Brown hair, thin, green eyes. Thomas has a big passion for insects and his dream is to study entomology. He's cheerful and a little careless, his dad hopes he will be a successful lawyer.
And many others...
Hanna Meekins: Senior citizen of Elkedor, she lost her husband due to an incurable disease. She isn't quite sympathetic with the Baker family.

I love this game, It is wonderful.
Really liked this game.
Amazing game with awesome art and plot 100% recommend!!
Yo the plot of this game is amazing!
im crying so hard holy crap.
I know i shouldn't be saying this, but
My dad has been acting insane since im 11 years old, he screams with me and hits everything he sees with his own hands, and i have a trauma because of it.
And no, i dont hate him. His life has been a hell in a long time, his ex-wife was a crazy woman who tortured his child, his 13 years old daughter has depression, anxiety and ocd, has bad notes at school and suffered bullying last year (I'm okay at school now, thank god).
He his way too stressed because of his daughter, so he screams everytime to feel a bit better.
And now he has to take care of his ex-wife's son, who is 20 years old, which needs to recover from a 8 year depression.
I realized my dad is suffering so much, so everytime i make him worry about me, i cut myself as a punishment.
I know this is wrong and it makes him worry even more about me, but i feel like i DESERVE it.
I'm sorry for venting though. Arold made me remind of the problems I've been hiding from myself. Thanks for making this game, now I know I don't have to hide my problems, but solve them and continue my happy life.
this game looks awesome i wish it was mac compatible TT
me and my boyfriend played this together and we had tons of fun :) very nice game! and i'd hope to see more games from you in the future!
SING US A SONG YOUR THE SHAWDOWMAN!
Yikes, I'm having trouble with the part with all the mirrors. I'm mega stuck. But!! other than that, it is a really good game, it has such a great atmosphere, it really made me sit there and just stare at the screen in awe.
If you examine all the mirrors, you'll see that there are some symbols that are connected with numbers . You have to use them to open the door :3. Let me know if you need further help~
This game was amazing! it had a great plot, great music, and very emotional. It was a great RPG game!
Enjoyed it a lot, pretty long for an rpgmaker horror game as well (2.5 hours in my case to 100% it and see all the endings). Hoping you'll make more games like this in the future because I'll always enjoy playing horror rpgmaker games.
Really enjoyed it! Loved the characters and the music and the feels
Can't wait to see what else you make
This was so much fun!! I got all the endings! Thank you for spending your time to make this incredible game for us to play~ :D
I couldn't get the key to work in the room with the dead cat, after meeting white fox.
You have to use the first key with the locker ^^
Hey, I really liked the idea even though the story telling confused me at times. I did a little video on it:
Did you make this in VX Ace?
I really liked this game. Great job! I have a question: Is the music original? I am wondering if I should fight the copyright claims on my video. Thanks!
Thank you! The music I used was made by my composer and some of them were also free resource. You don't have to worry about the copyright :)
Can i post my gameplay for this game? :) on my utube channel?
This is an interesting game so far. Well done.
Here's the second video and I really like how you made use of the empty space outside of the play area to add in a bit more of a creep factor in.
I loved it!
this is very beautiful ♥
