Initial release Dec 20, 2022
Synopsis:

This is the story of Moth Lake,
a small town that, behind its peaceful facade, hides a terrible secret.
Only a group of teenagers, with a difficult life, will reveal what has been hidden for generations.

Mysterious events will intensify starting from the eve of a solar eclipse,
and our young friends will start a journey into the shadow and into their own soul.

What to expect from this game:
In short:
•2.5D pixel art (Frame to frame animations, as if we are still in '90s)
• Simple controls (Supporting touch screen, mouse, keyboard and controllers)
• Unconventional puzzles (Don't worry, there's a free walkthrough if you need help!)
• Stealth-action
• Choices that will change the bonds between the characters as well as the spirit of the experience (Just like in life, a choice can make the difference between friendship, love, hate, life or death)
• Thrills, suspense and horror (Not a survival game, but it can be creepy or scary at times)
• Bad humor and strong language (They are teenagers, don't judge them)
• At some point this experience might even move you to tear (I'm not crying, I just got a pixel in my eye)
• 6 different endings
• A soundtrack that is original, suggestive, and exciting

In detail:

Moth Lake is a story-driven experience, with a lot of textual contents (more than 20k words), and hundreds of different scenes (more than 300 scenarios).

The script is a long journey through a mystery, through horrors and through the characters hearts.
It contains dark topics and very sad stuff, but also a lot of non-sense jokes and weird conversations, so it's hard to say whether it is a horror game or not.

The main characters move around a 2.5D world, interacting with many hotspots and NPCs.
They can pull objects and perform a set of specific actions to solve very different puzzles.

The artwork is a modern pixel art, with a big colour palette and a lot of frame-to-frame animations.
There's a very large set of animations, including talking, walking, running, crouching, crawling, pushing, climbing, sneaking, punching, throwing... and much more.

Scenarios have some modern lighting/shading work, with particles effects and a constant use of parallax, to simulate a 3D environment.

There are 6 main characters and more than 50 NPCs, with their own look and personality. You can control 7 characters through the main story and more in the additional chapters.
They all move their eyes, they change facial expressions, and they have some peculiar behaviours.

As the story proceeds, the player has to take some choices, affecting the characters mood and sometimes even the plot.

Characters with a good mood are always smiling, they perform funny idle animations and they help each other.
On the other hand, characters with a bad mood show an angry face, they insult their friends and they are generally edgy and selfish.
The general mood can even unlock hidden scenes, and personally I would play this game multiple times just to see these little details.

For most of the time the player controls a character surrounded by his/her friends.
Each one has some kind of skill to be used at the right moment, and sometimes even their personality will be important to solve a puzzle.

Some puzzles can be solved by a single character, while other must be solved using the whole squad cooperation.

As I said, the game aims to give psychological horror vibes.
So keep in mind that this game is not for everyone! Some scenes are disturbing, some scenes may give you anxiety, and some other scenes are extremely sad.

Characters are constantly called to face their difficult past, and to go through their scary present.
They need to hide, to take terrible decisions and sometimes even to fight for their lives.

...But after all, your choices can lead you to the best possible ending, and if you fail, you can always try again.

Back to the 90's horror
Deifinitely a good story game, the visuals give a retro feel and the sound is accompanied by a dynamic soundtrack, however, there are still a lot of texts involved in the gameplay.  Very atmospheric and environmental. In this game, you will need to interact with various hotspots and solve puzzles in order to complete a series of tasks. You may need to run or hide in order to survive, but if you fail and die, you can simply restart the scene because the game saves at each scene.

Moth Lake: A Horror Story is EERIE and CREEPY FOR SURE!!
Moth Lake: A Horror Story is pretty creepy, like SUPER CREEPY! This game took me by surprise, I didn't think a game on mobile could be so creepy and scary, but this one does it pretty well Gameplay wise you are being pursued by some tree demon, and it's trying to eat you, you must also search for your dog, who has decided to run away outside and while you are doing this, you are being chased by the tree demon. You can pick up items and also drag items to reveal hidden spots.

I knew I wasn't supposed to play this at night.
I bet you can't play this one alone and at night! This game will give you chills. You have to avoid and hide from the monster. To find the puzzle you are looking for, you have to run or hide to survive the game. I've been surprised so many times and saw the monster appear in front of me. I wasn't able to sleep well last night *ugh*. Play at your own risk.
