    Hi Zaratustra,

    I am planning on starting a ‘Let’s Play’ channel on YouTube. A friend recommended Your Eversion game as one I should be covering. I was specifically planning on running a ‘blind’ lets play (without having previously played the game). Would it be okay for me to use video footage from your game in my channel? Also, would it be allowable to monetize these videos on YouTube via the YouTube partnership ads?

    I just wanted to say that I had originally seen Eversion in an LP video (by DeceasedCrab, if it’s relevant), and I was amazed at the powerful imagery and changes in tone (both literally and figuratively) throughout the game. when I heard of the HD version on Steam, I snatched it up and haven’t regretted it. Thank you for your exemplary work on this game!

    A friend just directed me to the game, saying he wants me to do a LP without knowing anything about the game. I saw a previous comment regarding monetizing videos, and would like to ask the same. You can reach me at the email I provided, as well as view videos of other games I’ve played on the youtube channel I have linked on my website.

    Thank you.

    Cute game. My Xbox 360 controller’s Left and Right buttons work for controlling the game, but no other buttons function. Could we please add more default button layouts for 360 controllers by default?

    So I heard this was a horror game. What exactly is scary about it? Are there jump scares? Or are there just some creepy things about it? thanks in advance

      Each time you evert, the world becomes progressively darker and scarier… Imagine seeing your world being corrupted by sin itself, and that’s about the best description.

    Hi blogger, i found this post on 16 spot in google’s search results.
    I’m sure that your low rankings are caused by high bounce rate.

    This is very important ranking factor. One of the biggest reason for high bounce rate is due to visitors hitting the back button. The higher your bounce rate the further down the search results your
    posts and pages will end up, so having reasonably low bounce rate is important for improving
    your rankings naturally. There is very handy wordpress
    plugin which can help you. Just search in google for:

    Well. My first impression: this may as well have just been called ‘Anxiety: The Game’ and had the exact same effect.

    I’ve played a lot of ‘scary’ games in my life. I have never been so legitimately uncomfortable as I have during one of the modes- where the swirls turn into thorns and everything explodes into blood and the score counts down. My chest is still tight.

    A+. Thanks man, good work. :)

    Hi Zaratustra, I feel like trying it. Is there an online version (like James Burton’s Bill the demon) or only downloadable ones? Thanks in advance.
