Like everyone else, I'm dying to know what to do with the calling card.
Has anyone figured out if there's a reason the pet (4) is a gif, instead of a png like all the other ones? They're red eyes, just like (5) but the same red colour like DARKs eye when they wink. The delay in the gif is 1200 of just pitch black, then just a flash 100 of the red circles/eyes in darkness. Whenever I actually open up the gif, I notice that afterwards the other dark PNGs all have their previews shift right or something and it makes them into black squares. The images are still the same if you open them though.

Tried renaming myself DARK, didn't do anything.
Renamed myself 3141, didn't do anything.

Tried calling 735, didn't do anything.
       tried changing the # in the telephone txt to 735 and then called, nada.

Put the calling card anywhere I could, nada.
Put LIGHT in the (WINDOW), nada.
Put anything else I could in the (WINDOW), still nada.

When I put (3, 1, 4, 1) I think I broke it, at the ending it went through all the scenes and kept repeating when I clicked (as opposed to bringing me to the menu before I tried again.)
the (#) txt at some point in time after I put it in as 7353141 it changed to 7454431 and I'm unsure if this is anything significant.

i think im just gonna reply this here in hopes of maybe furthering the secret discussions from here/below because i think theyre interesting, but also cause i didnt want to put a question like this right at the top around the game's release date.

I really enjoyed this game though, the art is lovely and it's cute and spooky.

regarding what u said though, i'm somewhat convinced there's some small further secret regarding the card info & i noticed while playing through the game that there are some unused folders for objects we dont interact with; (window) and (bed). they appear once the object is interacted with.
though one thing I didnt check is if there were any extra folders made during the garden segment, or momentarily during the end convo of the game.

my take was also that the eyes gif was Dark's spooky spirit hiding out in that cage just by the eyecolour motif.

anyway ive tried alot of the same stuff & im not sure what other use the card numbers would be, since you cant dial 4 digits on the phone. maybe water plant3+1/pet4+1? ( or maybe itll be in a later game, idk :0 )

..also there's a file that doesnt appear during the normal game path in the game files. it doesnt exactly help to know that at all though, because its devoid of the context that would make it useful. i felt kinda bad for finding it in possibly a cheap way though, although just knowing an extra file exists doesnt magically solve a puzzle (if there is one); i just have no idea where to find it ingame, and dont want to if i cant find it naturally. so maybe it's fine. idk i was just curious. the game is about messing with files, afterall. anyway the real question is what context would it appear in; the game isnt rly interactable after the point where i'd assume it would be applicable.

given what it's called i assume itd have to do with what happens with -O in the ending, ( or possibly the (4) file, if the eye colour is meant to imply that that one pet cage is holding dark ) but you cant really interact with the game beyond chatting after that point as far as ive found so im out of ideas.
have tried a few folder shenanigans like (MENU) or (MAINMENU) considering that's where the object in question appears. idk what would happen though, really.

- all i will say is I gather from the file symbols (♡:⬜/⬛) are counterparts. maybe inversely, tho that was already my thought initially upon opening (body)

we resurrect (dark), though deleting (light) also becomes a question in itself with context.  aaa thats totally overthinking it now lmao, it prob just refers to -O at the end.

and of course, maybe there's just no further secret in this game, and it's a setup for a sequel? whooo knooooows, but the game was a neat journey either way.

I really want to believe theres something here though! but i have no idea what else to try after playing through it like alot of times trying stuff everyone had already tried, among other things.

big oof

Honestly I don't even remember the files I went through and saw, I kept an eye on them all as I played though.
I deleted all my saves and ect and played through again a few times after scouring around and reading everything here.
I kept a video of quicker runthroughs lol.

I didn't think about the numbers and watering the plants/feeding the pets.
I don't actually even remember if you can go to "sleep" without feeding/watering everything.

The numbers do really confuse me too. I hope this is all a set-up for a sequel or something.
I'm ready for it.

Hi ! So, I liked the part of the game I'e been throught already ! But I think I've been geeting bugs with my mac version. (Spoilers)

I think the one at the end of the day is intentionnal, but when I wake up in the dark, whenever I click on something there's a "an exception has occured" appearing. Sometimes it's not in the same lines, and I think it's preventing me from progressing with the phone (I think I found the code, but it doesn't work when I type it, saying the same thing as if I typed random numbers, and it shows two errors after I click on the phone, so I guess it could be linked).

Am I just dumb and need to do something else before typing the code or is there really a problem that needs to be fixed ? If so, do you want me to put screenshots of the different errors i've been getting ?

Thank you in advance.  (And sorry for my possible bad english...)

Okay, I managed to play the window version, and there's definitely bugs. After the end of the first day, I'm immediatly getting the part where everything is dark. And I didn't really find the code, I think that was the renpy version of something like that, so I AM dumb, but in my defense, nor the LIGHT or any other files after that appears in the dark part was in the mac file. I checked after I redowloaded the game. So I guess that's why I got the dark part immediatly, and why the code didn't work. I didn't finish the game yet, but I'll tell here if I find anything related to the bugs on the mac version

for mac, please read the download instructions which are on the download page.

So that ending...  You are clearly setting up for something.

Amazing! The puzzles gave off a OneShot vibe, and were really fun in general.

I liked the concept but am stuck at the phone and can't figure it out honestly.

Think outside the game window.
(Spoilers)
















Check the game files. Find the phone. Read the file.

I LOVE IT! I LOVE IT! I LOVE IT! Such a nice story, nice game mechanics, just lovely all around.

This looks like such a cool game, but I can’t play it on my mac! It crashes with constant Read-only file system: errors. I downloaded the game into a folder with read/write permissions, but the errors are coming from somewhere deep in my filesystem. I think this is due to app translocation, unfortunately. I’m on macOS 10.14.6.

I was able to download and play on an older mac! OSX 10.9.5 worked. I do think the issue might be app translocation on newer OSX versions, but I’m not sure how to get around that.

Thank you for the game, that was lovely! The meta aspect especially, not to mention the bonus game I got where I learned about app translocation :)

I liked the sound- it was simple and atmospheric without feeling repetitive. You brought a lot of interaction to a game without having to actually build in all that interaction, which was clever. Very nice.

i'm glad you got it working. re: app translocation you can try steps like these: https://wiki.keyboardmaestro.com/assistance/Translocation_Problem

(+1)

Thanks! That did fix the problem. I had to download the zip file, open it, and then move the lightsoffgame.app file itself (NOT the folder it was in) to another location. Once I did that the errors stopped. You might want to specify that mac users need to move that file specifically to another location, not just download it to somewhere outside the Downloads folder.

I wanted to try this on my windows pc, however my malware detection caught this file while unzipping it. I even tried to exclude the file from the malware detection but it would still not allow it. It looks cool from the pictures, so good job with that!

I really liked playing this game. I will say that the concept of the game is really cool.

ah this game is so good! not being able to figure out to do with (CARD) is gunna bother me though!!

(+1)

I gave this game a play-through, and I must say, it's a VERY well done game with a really cool concept at it's core. 

I'm stuck at 

*spoiler*

The phone room

Think outside the game.

pleasee add this to the playstore i really want to play it thank u 

absolutely 10/10.

Just finished playing this and I love love love love love it!! The gameplay was quite unique, and I loved solving the puzzles!! The storyline was amazing, and the artwork was simply spectacular!! I would totally recommend anybody that likes playing puzzle games to play this!! 

(+1)(-2)

So good. Better than Doki Doki.

(+1)(-1)

Pros and cond are down below) Check out my vid here:

Advantages:

1. This is so damn cool! I loved the concept, it was such a cool puzzle game! The 4th wall breaking was definitely creepy, I had goozebumps all over!

2. The art style is cool) I love how simplistic it is but at the same time it feels like the characters are looking right into your soul!

3. That's very cool that there are multiple versions of comments for the same stuff, so cool to return to the game to see what has changed.

Disadvantages:

1. I think the game would benefit a lot if you'd script the situations when the player puts stuff in the wrong places (like comments which signifies that it actually happened in the world but it was not the right solution). Though, that's hard to script everything, so you can do only the most common mistakes. It'd still be so much cooler!

2. It would be awesome is there'd be different solutions whith different consequences for the same task. For example, the player could feed the goldfish or could place it in the tank in the other room and it would get eaten and dissapear so the player would have to restart. Or it would be even cooler if the player would have to fail in order to progress (for example: make the goldfish eaten, then it'd drop something which the player would have to save in the other folder and use upon restrrting).

3. Maybe the game would benefit a lot if you add more sound cues to it. There is no nee to voice act everything, but if the last Dark's lined would be suddenly voice acted, that'd blow the player's mind! 

Overall:

I guess, there is so much more which can be done with the game in order to improve it. Normally, if I see lots of room for improvement, I rate 4 stars. But this experience got me so involved and fascinated that I can not rate it less than 5. 5/5 it is!

Hope my feedback was useful!

After the second night I was sure this was just going to be a blatant Doki Doki rip-off, but it really surprised me in terms of quality storyline, artwork, and gameplay. The puzzles were just the right amount of challenging and hard and I'm having an uncommon and uncharacteristic lack of remorse for time spent playing video games. Thanks, npckc!

So cute! So Goth! So Fun! So Cutegothfun!! Fetch my eyeliner, we're getting gloomy!

This game was super interesting and really, really fun! Thank you for putting it out!

SPOILER








I don't know if someone already found it, but if you open the (CARD) with adobe reader you get a close-up view of her two eyes, with one of them open, like when she says :"Just let me know".

I think that's the only thing and the game ends there

(+1)

I opened it in Google drive. Same image appeared of her winking, but opening the file resulted in it saying DARK as the header and 3141 in bold. It is a PDF.

Loved the game! It was unsettling but awesome! I needed to fix some technical difficulties, but I finished the game and I walked my friend through! Thank you for one of the best games I've ever played! <3

"KEY" file did not show up in my playthrough, had to look up a walkthrough to see what was going on.

OMG, I'm so proud to have figured it out! Loved it!!

How to Reset!

Just writing this so everyone knows how to reset! There are two files called "persistent" that you have to delete. I searched up what to do and found this steam discussion: https://steamcommunity.com/app/429300/discussions/0/458605613403306861/
Basically just delete all your saves in the game itself (including persistent) and go to C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\RenPy\lightsoffgame-1597471368 and delete persistent there as well.

thanks!

(+1)

no problem!

I like npckc's other games and so I tried this game despite the fact that I can't handle horror well. Totally didn't regret for giving it a try! The puzzles are pretty challenging too. It's so good, really hope there'll be a continuation of this!!

edit: I agree with other comment, go play this game without reading anything about it first- trust me it'll be an enjoyable experience! :D

aaaah this was so cute!! the horror was really well done and the file elements were super cool :)

(2 edits) (+1)

I definitely recommend playing this game yourself before reading anything about it.

This is my favorite game you made so far npckc and one of my favorite games I played on itch.io. It’s hard to talk about without spoiling it but man oh man I loved it start to finish. The horror aspect of this game was pretty unnerving and utilized extremely well! 

I made a video of my experiences with the game. Hopefully this can serve as a good walkthrough for those who might get stuck. Seriously, this was amazing! Looking forward to the next one!

omg this game is amazing

---EDIT: BY THE WAY, I KEEP GETTING ERROR MESSAGES, NOBODY'S TALKING ABOUT IT BUT I GET THEM EVERY TIME I DO SOMETHING, I'M JUST GUESSING THAT IT'S PART OF THE GAME, SO IT MAKES ME DO STUFF WITH THE FILES.

Hey random person! Um, I followed the games instructions, when the shopkeeper broke the fourth wall, I got chills, no doubt! Then it showed an error (did i just pee my pants? Nope.). I know this was on purpose, then it kept happening, I was confused (my mac usually hates running things), so then I completed the tasks the shopkeeper gave me over and over, multiple times, then I looked at the replies to this game! It had multiple spoilers that I didn't even understand, things about renaming and making files, pdfs, finding calling cards? Plus many other things... I knew it was this type of game after the 4th wall broke. Although, the only files I have are the game and the credits. Should I change something in the error text when I open it? I'm sorry, I just really want to keep playing this game! Thank you ;-;

(3 edits) (+1)

OK so, the errors are not part of the game, so you're going to want to fix those before you try to continue. After you fix that, you are going to want to find some way to turn off the lights. (The game gives you some hints when the black screen shows up).

After that, the game should be pretty simple so long as you have the game files open while you play. All of the editing stuff is just people experimenting post-game, you don't have to change the contents of any files while you play.

(1 edit)

Thank you! By the way, how do I restart the game?
Edit: I've tried deleting and redownloading the game

I'm not sure, but you can google how to reset a renpy game if you need to.

(1 edit)

Also, I honestly don't know how to fix the error thing D:

(+3)

a little note... for mac users... 

if you are playing on a mac, please make sure you have the game folder in a writeable directory... (do not just play it in your downloads folder...)

as well...

















if you find you are... stuck...

you may want to try... right-clicking the app...

to show package contents...

and then go to... contents/resources/autorun...

(1 edit)

then what?
Edit: also, is it normal for mac users to have an error code thing every single time they do something? If so how do i fix it?

it says its missing lightsoffgame.exe? why isnt it included in the windows download?

it's included in the windows download. make sure your antivirus software didn't isolate the .exe.

how do i do that

hey why was a post in this thread deleted

nice.

there isnt anything more after the calling card right?

(+2)

There's some cool things in the card you can discover, but as of now, no one has found a real use for it.

Hello! Are you interested in translating your game to spanish? I'm willing to do it for free, no prob!

I just noticed that Dark's card has her name spelled in all caps like the files between dimensions, like (KEY) or (LIGHT). I tried making a (DARK) file with 3141 in it, but it didn't seem to do anything. I think I might be on the right track though, can anyone else try it at different points in the game and see if it does anything? I'd rather not reset my game if I don't have to.

how do you reset your game? I reaaally wanna do it. Maybe try it on the phone, see if it does something.

(1 edit) (+1)

I'm not 100% sure myself, but I think it should just be deleting the save data in the game and then going into %appdata% to delete the renpy backup.

You can always google search how to reset a renpy game though

(+2)

I posted a comment on this page on how to do that :)

holy shit this was AMAZINGG it's so cute yet creepy and unsettleling. truly amazing

I’m always in awe at your renpy powers. This was so clever!!

can someone please help me? --SPOILERS--

As it stands, her calling card is only meant as a memento. Any other use for it hasn't been implemented yet...................................................?

but what about all the others saying that they've input a certain number or something as the name or in the telephone? or changing the (#) file??

I think that's just people experimenting still, trying to figure out where to put the number in Dark's card. I don't think anyone has actually solved it yet.

I've heard people say the number should be where her mouth is, if that helps.

If anyone has updates on what's going on with the calling card, let me know!

So far I have: 

- Named myself "3141"

- Put "735" (the numbers in the script version of the pdf) into the phone

- Changed the (#) file to "3141"

- Turned on self voicing + text to speech and moused over/clicked on her mouth (someone told me that in the PDF the words/numbers are where her mouth is, cannot verify because I cannot turn the file into a PDF for some reason)

So far nothing has happened, but I'm convinced there must be some secret we've yet to find!

Omg, how did you do all of this? I feed the pets and plants and go to sleep, already have my fourth wall broken multiple times. Also, I see so many weird things on the replies here. I need help! (I'm on mac if it helps!!)

You'll have to fish around in the files a bit to get the ending. In the folder the game is located in there should be some files you can move around/delete. This aspect is crucial to the next few parts of the game.

Finished the game with my friend! AWESOME <3

super cute pets <3
