Abstract

Done within 14 days, Scarred Stars is a survival hide-and-seek style of a game set in an abandoned amusement park. This game is a loveletter to 90's horror games and has retro aesthetics inspired by the era. This game uses lots of effects and design choices that shows what RPG maker MZ is capable of.

Plot

It's the year 1985.  Asuka had always been a good girl but she had a friend who was bad influence on her; Momoko. Momoko always tried to egg Asuka onto doing mischevious, bad things. However, one day Momoko actually insists that the duo break into an abandoned amusent park as a dare, only for things to take ugly turn...

Features

  • Game focused on hiding and puzzles, not combat

Ah sweet! Thank you for the heads up, then I'll wait on recording a Let's Play until the new version releases.

Amazing game! Love the multiple endings. If I had to give the game some kind of supportive criticism it would be to give some kind of hint somewhere in the game about the riddle for the true ending. Had me stumped for a bit... lol

Thank you from the video! And yeah, but it's literally in the name of the game so I thought that it wouldn't be so hard, lol

While the game is nice, I got hard stopped when I got chased by the slime monster. For some reason, the monster kept breaking my hiding spot even when I hide without the monsters in the room. Another issue I found is the ghost monsters either being in an area when they are actually not there or just appearing in the background. I'd would take a look into that. I would suggest making a few more hiding spots.

Other then that, game's fairly solid.

Hello, there seemed to have been a bug that prevented you from using the 3rd hiding spot at 3rd floor when the blood monster chased you. I'm fixing it now and adding some other features.


EDIT: Update is live, which fixes this problem and adds lighting effects. Sorry about the inconvenience!

hey, very interesting game, a nice plot twist at the end and I think you should expand on it, like a flashback and we see what happens,otherwise I loved it!

Hello, I just uploaded version 2.0 which adds much more content!!

It's been a while since I've played an RPGMaker horror game, and Scarred Stars was a good re-introduction.

Thank you from the nice video!

The environment and set up is really good! I feel the game could use some more pictures to illustrate the story better. Especially with the events and endings. But man, you got me thinking that I was playing the witch house!

Thank you for the video! I'm actually working on a huge patch that'll add a lot more content to the park and some improvements to dialogues and such, including a new neat trauma image too!

OH! That is great news! That's what I felt in the game. A few more pictures and events and this is perfect! Looking forward to the update :)

I updated it with the massive 2.0 update! There's tons of new content to see and much more lore and backstory, there's stuff for people who even beat the game to enjoy and some improved game mechanics!! I highly recommend if nothing else to check the new manuscript room and the new timeline added to the good ending as they tie things up much more.

Big fan of the game. You can tell a lot of work and love was put into it. The atmosphere and scary-ness were handled well and it has multiple endings to offer. I recommend to play it!
