Beracus and Lee finally have a lead to more information for a potential cure for Beracus' suffering village. 

Upon finding the entrance to an apparently abandoned bunker, the two abruptly become trapped inside and discover the place is still very much lived in by a family of cult members who also happen to be skeletons. (Uh-oh.)
The family mistakes Lee and Beracus for cult members who are simply "late to the party" so to speak, and give them free reign to explore the bunker as they all wait for the surface to become the "New World". (Uh-oh!)

Of course, Beracus and Lee don't have that kind of time! Not only do they need food, water, and air to simply survive, they must return to the surface to continue their search for an the all important cure.
Together they must talk to the skeleton family to discover important information, find clues, collect items, and try to uncover and understand the tragedies that turned this simple bunker, into a tomb.

  • Point and click your way through a mysterious bunker!
  • Uncover the horrifying events that happened there...
  • Get to know (and love or hate) 5 unique cult members!
  • Get to know, guide, and ultimately judge, your pal One-Eyed Lee!
  • Casual, easy to pick up puzzles
  • 8 different endings!
  • 3-4 hours for each complete playthrough
  • Completely original art, story, and soundtrack
  • Available for Windows, Mac, Linux

WARNING: This game contains screen shakes, depictions of death, depictions of skeletons/bones, scoptophobia, swearing, and general spooky vibes.


Hey! I'm DCS! A queer comic artist and game dev who enjoys spooky vibes and character conflict.
This is the first in a hopefully four part series of games featuring Beracus and Lee. As the story continues, we will learn more about both of them, and learn more of Beracus' journey to save his village. Will Lee stay by his side and help him? Will Lee leave? Will Lee even be the answer Beracus oh so hopes him to be? We'll find out!


This game features an original soundtrack created by NomnomNami!
The soundtrack can be enjoyed streaming on Soundcloud, or bought directly from Nami on her Bandcamp!

Nami also helped with huge chunks of code for the game, and without her this game would not be possible. Thank you, Nami!

I only have one verdict for this game: I LOVE IT!

I loved everything, the characters, puzzles, lore, and what excites me the most is that there will be more games in the future.

The characters are endearing, charming, and realistic; I love every interaction of the protagonists between them or with the other characters (They have made me laugh a lot), and that the relationship between them is related to the endings, it seems sensational and logical.

What I liked most about the characters, is that they are literally two opposite poles, both in appearance and personality, ideals, morals (Although to be exact, we don´t fully know Lee's personality due to his condition), and even goals in life; it makes their interactions deeper and makes me want to see where they will go with their story.

The puzzles aren´t terribly complicated but they make you think, not to mention that the comments of Lee and Beracus are hilarious, I never got bored of it (Even when I had to repeat game to get another ending).

The lore about the game, although it may not seem like it, these events take place in several different places (Where Lee's family lives, the cave of this game, the Villa of Beracus), places with different cultures and ways, as well as mysteries and other events to discover (The curse of Lee, or the events of the skeleton family), forming a base on the Lore and the game world, in addition that Lee has been traveling for a long time, we will surely hear more stories about the world ( We don´t know if the world takes place in the same world of Solanaceae or another comic or game).

I want to know more about this world.

I don´t lie in saying that I am very excited that there will be a sequel in the future (I already know that it will come out by 2021 or 2022 but I am willing to wait), and I really want to see the eccentric adventures of this duo.

PS: I don't usually like the games or stories of two fellow protagonists without romance (Whatever their genre), but this is a nice exception...

 Besides that you never know if there may be romance in the future (Even if there isn't, I'm going to keep loving the game<3).

Thanks so much for playing and thanks AGAIN for such a lovely and glowing review! I appreciate hearing your thoughts on every aspect!

I'm so glad to hear the writing made you laugh (I try very hard to do that) and that the puzzles weren't too complex. With this game, I wanted something that didn't feel too easy, but wasn't really difficult either. Just something fun to pick up that was interesting to read and get through! So I'm glad it seemed to fill that niche for you.

There's lots more lore for these characters and world that will be explored in the future! I won't spoil anything!

But, I can confirm that this world is stand-alone, meaning it has no connection to Solanaceae, Space School, Tomai, or any of my other series. It is it's own world with it's own set of very specific rules!

Thanks again and I'm excited to bring you the next 3 games in this series, whenever they may happen! X) 💖

I only make these kind of comments when the game is worth it.

So you have every right to feel proud and even brag XD.

I am glad to know that this world will be unique and you will teach us more of its lore in the future, and it makes me even happier that there are more secrets and stories of the protagonists to discover.

But a part of me feared that the world was unique, don't get me wrong, I don't think it's a bad thing nor am I against it, but I'm a sucker for crossovers.

Anyway, I will wait patiently for the next game, while I will follow your comics.

Thank you for your patience and dedication<3<3<3<3.

Aw gosh! Well I'm honored the game is worth it!

Yes, the world is unique but worry not, I actually make crossover stuff now and again for my Patrons, just for fun or for milestone rewards. Here's one comic I've made and then here's another! (And hey, the Solanaceae: Epilogue game will actually have some fun crossover type stuff in the future! So look out for that!)

And I'm also working on ANOTHER crossover comic as we speak, hehe. So you've got plenty to look forward to in that department, just not in this game series in particular! X)

Thank you for your support and enthusiasm! I'm gonna keep making fun stuff for you to enjoy!

I already read all those, and I loved them deeply<3<3<3<3.

But I was referring to a complete original story, like one of those good/bad crossovers movies.

Examples: The Avengers, Batman vs Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, King Kong vs Godzilla, Rugrats Go Wild, Alien vs Predator, and etc...

Although I don't complain about your crossovers, I love them, please, keep doing them (^///^).

P.D .: In your new crossover will appear the characters of One-Eyed Lee, and Tomai (And other new characters)?

Honestly, I would like to see them interact with others, it seems fun XD.

(1 edit) (+1)

Oh, yay, thank you!

And oh! I see! I unfortunately don't have any big crossover projects like that planned, cuz it's not really what I focus on, but I can see the appeal!

And yeah, in the new comic the Tomai crew and Lee and Beracus appear, but they don't interact much, mostly they interact with Battam and Sal! (The comic mostly focuses on what characters I drew the most of in 2019!)

I can say with confidence that most of my characters uhh, do not like Lee because he's overbearing and a bit... creepy, haha. The sad truth!

Played this on Steam and really enjoyed it! I always love your art, and I thought the puzzles hit that sweet spot where you have to think a bit but you don't feel like giving up and checking a guide.

Noticed a few bugs; nothing game-breaking as far as I could tell, but just FYI.

  • In the room with the fireplace, after you pick up the poker but before you cut open the animal's mouth, when you click on something else the poker shows up again.
  • After Priscilla moves to the living room, there doesn't seem to be a flag that you've already asked her about the puzzle; the option shows up again and after you exit the dialogue you appear back at the entrance where she used to be.
  • If you examine the items in the safe after putting the painting together, you pick up a duplicate Piece D.
  • The first time you read James's note about the password, it refers to the "party hall," but in the diary and when you examine the note again, it refers to the "dining room."
  • Typo, not a bug, but "someone with a bad memory, or someone trying to be discrete" should be "discreet."

Let me know if save files or screenshots would help.

Thanks for playing and thanks for reporting some bugs! These bugs are QUITE odd though because they all look like bugs I've address before? Really strange! Games tend to be like that though.

I'll write all of these down and once I compile a few more (people simply aren't playing and commenting enough for me to know of bugs, uh oh) I'll release an update.

Oh! A tiny review on Steam would be great btw, since you mentioned you've played it there! If you don't mind, there's no pressure but I figured it doesn't hurt to ask.

(Also, I'm glad the puzzles hit a sweet spot! That's what I was going for!)

No problem, I'll write a review once I finish getting all the endings =)

And that is odd. Did Steam accidentally get an older build? If not, let me know if I can help pinpoint the conditions for any of those bugs.

Aw yay, thank you! :D

Also, no, I don't think Steam got an older build, I think that these bugs look similar to bugs I've already fixed, but are under even more specific circumstances than the original, so they are peeking their heads out. They all seem like very very easy fixes.

(And some are just stuff I straight up missed, it happens! When you go from kinetic novels to all of a sudden making a point-and-click, I'm just glad my game works at all, lol!

(somewhat spoiler)

im very eager to see how lee deals with his fam issues. he's so well written i love how he hates bread  and his face contorts when hes thinking about personal subjects. when his eyes get fuzzy and his smile is strained you can tell its the emotions being repressed that are trying to get out. and his age maaaate, that makes it more tragic. the interaction with his family that might happen in future games is very well built,  i love the tension.  and im curious as to when you think the next game will take to finish, that is if you've started it already. i cant wait :D

(1 edit)

hey! Thanks a bunch for another lovely comment// I'm so flattered and happy to hear you like the games and are thinking about Lee :D

You're quite spot on about him and without saying too much, I think you'll be pleased with the next 3 games. (This series is 4 games in total)

I won't be working on the next Lee's game AT ALL in 2020 since it took up my entire 2019 to finish, which is a bummer b/c I actively work on other games. For 2020, I will be working on updates to the Solanaceae: Epilogue gameas well as working on a few (tiny) kinetic novels.

Comics are my full time job while games are a side thing for me, but the more support my comics and games get, the less time I have to work on even MORE side stuff like commissions-- so I'm hoping this game does well enough on Steam that I can put in an extra day of game dev in the future.

PHEW! That was a wall of text, sorry! 

TLDR: I won't be working on any real game dev for the second Lee's game in 2020, but I do know what the game is about and what will happen with it. (I know the general whole story of all 4 games, so) In 2021 or 2022 is when I plan to start real production on the next game.

All I can say at the moment without spoiling too much is that it takes place in a casino. I hope you'll look forward to it! :D

this game is so nice, i love the art, the music and the little details , how the interactions can vary depending on how you act.  but i need some help , im stumped. i've managed to get 6/8 endings  (spoiler alert)




lee drowned, lee was poisoned, normal ending, lee died (fight wt james), lee exploded, and the 'who?' end with the help from the spirit one. ive been at it for practically two days and its just impossible :'^/

(SPOILERS)

You're missing the "True Ending" and the "Beracus Died" ending!

To get the true ending, you'll need to think very carefully about how you proceed thru the bunker. You need to bring two items with you to the boss battle (think about what items you could keep, or maybe an item you never got? Maybe something that vanished because you did something too soon?)

And for the Beracus Died ending, it correlates with a certain item you can keep into the boss battle. <-- This one is by far the most specific and difficult, forgive me!


I hope this helps, if not I can be EVEN MORE CLEAR with how to get stuff, but I will need to contact you privately to do it ;)

Thanks so so much for checking out the game and for your lovely comment <3

:D

Sent you the e-mail! Good luck!

This is an awesome puzzle game, highly recommended! The characters and story are very interesting, with the illustrations and soundtrack all making for a ~spooky~ atmosphere. Amazing work, DCS!!

THANK YOU SO SO MUCH!!! This comment makes me so happy to get <3

Just made an account and glad to have this as my first game!! I had such a good time figuring everything out and every time I needed a tip it turned into a "duh" moment, so all the puzzles are actually really comprehensive, if thought about the right way ;Dc

Ahhh, and I love the characters so much too <3 <3

10/10, would cri about skellies (and Lee) again

Aw gosh, thank you so so much!

This is my first ever puzzle game so it's nice to get a comment like this! I wanted something that was "casual" but didn't feel so easy that it wasn't fun-- but more so a game where you felt like you achieved something and got to see conclusions for characters and a story you care about!

So yeah, thanks so much for your support and wonderful comment!!! :D

YAS YAS YAAAASSSSS. I have been patiently waiting for this game, and the finished version looks GORGEOUS. Love the music, love the characters, love the puzzles. Just the right amount of difficulty for me! I'm so excited that you finished and thank you so much for making this beautiful lovely game!!!

THANK YOU SO SO MUCH!!! <3333 I'm so glad to finally be able to show the finished product to you!
