A downloadable game for Windows

Welcome, ladies & gentlemen!

A-ha, how y'all doing? Now, the name of the game is to answer truest to yourself. There's no right and wrong, everyone's a winner! Ooorrr a loser, depending how you think about it. Life is all about perception, you see. Onto the first question!

You're a murderer, we all know it. But do you think you are?

Close Your Eyes is an early 2014 horror game I made for Ludum Dare 29 in two days. While there were elements of the game I liked, there were a lot of problems with it, so I've decided to spend a few more days on it, remove elements and sections I didn't like, cut down on the long 'walking' segments, and add a lot of new content to make it really a whole new game.

Through a stroke of sheer luck, you've managed to escape death row. Taking to an underground subway, you try to find your salvation. Can he break free of the past that binds you, and please, can you close your eyes? Just close them.

Everything in the game is made by myself and the artist I work with, Rincs.

*FIX* UNABLE TO FIND: Graphics/splash : You need to install RPG Maker VX Ace RTP. Here's a link to it: https://www.mediafire.com/file/ylni8yx7eidig8i/RTP_VX_Ace.zip/file

BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE !!! AFTER THAT, create a folder into the main game called "Graphics" then another one inside this one called, you guessed it, "Splash" (no commas). Go to the folder where you installed the VX Ace RTP (generally Program Files/Common Files/Enterbrain/RGSS3/RPGVXAce), go to Graphics/System (of RTP Vx Ace RTP folder) and select any of the images there, copy it, paste it into the "Graphics/Splash" on the main game folder (Close your eyes), name it Splash.png and you're good to go. My guess is that it's the title screen with RPG Maker, Enterbrain and their logos that's missing and so the game simply doesn't go (if you don't have the real RPG Maker VX Ace installed), so this solution works to playing the game only.

tl;dr: Create a folder called Graphics, then one called Splash, and inside that, add any image (hot women/a car/your dog) also called Splash.png (save it into .png format), all  inside the Close your eyes folder.

ALTERNATIVE: Download my ready to play fix here, and extract it to your main game folder (Close Your Eyes), wherever it's installed.(NOTE: I do not know how long the file will stay online because I created no account at all and it says that after 14 days the "account" (the folder where the download is created on mediafire is) can be deleted, I don't know how that effects the link, but there you have it).


And for my review: I got ending 6/7 first. Then went for the ending in the forest with the girl, and just ended up watching them all in youtube. But, well, I had fun anyway. The ending number 7, is totally cannon, that's for sure.

This is probably one of the best RPGM horror games I've ever played, I like how warm and sympathetic the tone is and hope you do well more with this surreal style!


Unable to find the file "Graphics/Splash" D:


yea i had the same problem


Unable to find "Graphics/Splash" :(


I haven't played all the game (even half, due one puzzle), but I can tell that it's one of those, which keeps you in suspense in every minute. So if you're looking for scary horror (but not the one which is only packed with jump scares), then I recommend this.

Maybe I will try play this again and write something more later.

Here’s a drunk lets play/gameplay for you if you’re still on the fence about playing this game, and if you are I have one question for you, what the hells wrong with you??

i did a full playthrough on this and absoultly loved it

I never thought someone could make this game not only scary, but also hilarious !

Really great game, funny too. Probably my favourite of your projects.

I played through this game and made a Lumps Play (let's play with pop-up commentary cuz it rules!) years ago and forgot to post it...


Here's the first episode and full playlist :D


I tried to play your game but it says that it couldn't find Graphics/Splash when I open it.


Same here, idk what to do
