i like the game tho

does this game mess with ur pc, is this game a virus, or wut?

don't worry. nothing messes with the pc. none at that level

THX, i like to hear it!

48th time i play it (with my friend) and it's still good, everything is good, music, gameplay, "lore", story but to be honest i prefer the old game without the 25 level

Me and my friend REALLY want to see "senpai" face, we're intriged... can't wait to see what gonna change in the next update


I checked out this game with a couple friends and man did we have a blast, the plot twist and audio-based horror experience was really fun!

Thank you so much for the kind words! Excited to watch the video and see your reactions. This game is just the first in a series of horror platformers. In case you're interested, the games after this are DERE EVIL EXE, HopBound, and Puzzling Peaks EXE. Thanks again!


Played DERE EXE: Rebirth of Horror!


Hiii, I've made a video about the game and wanted to share some feedback about it ^^, hopefully it is useful :)

-The concept of the game feels fresh for a platformer game and interesting enough to cath the attention of the player right at the beginning.

-The visual style is unique and fits perfectly the game.

-The gameplay mechanics are very interesting and pretty polished, also they get well complemented with the rest of the game.

Hopefully this is useful to you :D, also if you could subscribe that would help me a lot :)


I'm glad you liked the game. The feedback is helpful. I'll be sure to subscribe. Hope you check out the rest of the games in this series as well. Thank you!

You are welcome ^^


The game is very good. The plot is very interesting and the challenge of the game is incredible. Congratulations for the good work!

Thank you so much for the kind words! Hope you check out the other games in the series too. Thank you!


This is great! The challenges are on par with DERE Evil and there's a story as we go along. Towards the end, make sure you touch the tombstones. I didn't know that was supposed to be a save point and wasted a lot of time. Lets... Save Kara? 


Really enjoyed your playthrough. You know that. It was a piece of cake for you too hahaha. Thought you were gonna go for a "no checkpoint" run for a moment there

This was a great game. Got a bit frustrated toward the end but the story made the struggle worth it. 

I am horrible at platformers so it took me a while to beat about 2 and a half hours actually.

Watched your vid. The editing for the audio was very clever. I'm glad you liked the game. Thank you for finishing it!

Ya I kinda forgot to record game audio on my first playthrough so  salvaged what I could and then replaced the rest
