Well, this game definitely had some spooks. The environmental effects were very interesting. Especially when the little bunny got speared to the corkboard(and then moved)! Good job with this game.

Loved the game but almost wish the horror came from the calls you received instead of the monster itself. I enjoyed the changing environments "Liar" and such popping up various places, but the actual monster itself seemed out of place. Hope you do more with this concept and maybe make a full game dedicated to the horrors of police dispatch.
Loved the tension this game builds as you try to make the right choices, also this game gave me one of the wildest jumpscares lol. Looking forward to more games from you in the future
Amazing Concept, i do think the Exucution was a bit lacking. Firstly, the voice acting wasn´t very good, i know i can´t expect much from a small indie developer but in a game which is based on voice alone good voiceacting is important. I like the suptle horror very much though, not many games do this! Keep up the good work though!
Great work on this game. It’s very tense
The silly 911 calls leading up to the very intense 911 call while unsettling stuff starts happening around the office was a very nice design. I was zoomed into the dispatcher screen so i didn't notice the Windigo (monster) on my first play through; until i turned around and looked back at the desk then BOO! Jump scare got me lol Can't wait to make my friends play this! Highly recommended well done!
Saw a streamer play it @analyzeitgaming btw and the game was pretty fun especially the karen lmao, we are all sad that its short but better than nothing
I Really Liked The Game! Even without the monster at the end the tension of the situation was already scary enough since it's things that actually do happen in that Job, 9.5/10
Thank you, we really tried to go for a tense and somewhat eerie vibe so I’m glad it worked! Thanks for playing :)
Bro this game scared the living shit out of me, i did NOT see that coming. in terms of jump scares this is the scariest indie horror game I've ever played and i cant wait to see more of your work in the future :)

Wow thank you very much, I accidentally scared myself so many times whilst coding that so I’m glad I’m not the only one! We have actually just started work on a new project so if you’d like updates follow either on here or on Twitter (our handle is @twoshoedgames)
Im wondering how i can change the microphone
I'll be honest with you - that ending got me good! lmao
THANKS FOR RUINING ME. GAME STARTS AT 15:08
I gotta say, This game caught me completely off guard, the quality of detail and the experience itself was awesome and I was completely immersed the whole time. the gameplay is thrilling and really locks you into the scenario. I wasnt sure if there were multiple endings but if there was it would add an extra layer of intensity. 10/10
Thank you very much for taking the time to play through our game and your kind words have made our day :) P.s. there are a couple different ending so give it a second playthrough if you like!
This game was really well done. You did a great job creating a tense atmosphere and a feeling of desperation. The random horror elements throughout the office while dealing with Sophie on the phone was a nice touch. I thought the game captured the spirit of the creepypasta "My Final Call As A Police Dispatcher Has Scarred Me" fairly well. The ending got me pretty good too.
I most absolutely definitely want to see more of this game. Either more added to this one, or a full release on steam. Stellar experience.
I agree with others; The game could be kind of better without that jumpscare but the storyline was incredible.
This was a really intense game, and I loved it. Did NOT expect the jumpscare. Well done!
Amazing game. The atmosphere alone is enough to give someone goosebumps. I only have 1 Act left. If you're thinking about this game. DO IT. It definitely is up the with From the darkness, Wrong Turn and PT. if you see this please bring us another game like this
Hello, I would ask you if I can stram your game on twitch?
Hi, yes of course you can, please provide a link so we can watch :D
Thanks very much for taking the time to play through our game! In regards to the monster, we wanted to use it as a metaphor and link it into the backstory. However, we seem to have not made the story clear enough which left a lot of players feeling like it was out of place. A mistake on our part that we will definitely learn from going forwards! :)
I have to agree with some others here. The ending makes no sense to me, and cheapens the whole game experience. The dispatch gameplay has good bones, but the jumpscare feels totally shoehorned. I think this game would be better relying on suspense.
Not trying to hate, I really enjoyed 95% of what you did! Exited to see more.
This game had a really interesting idea, i haven't seen anything like this before, but the jumpscare part was completely out of place. This game should have just ended there.
Agreed. The hallucinating because of PTSD was fine, the random generic monster was silly and unnecessary,
This game is fucking epic. it would be cool if you would make a little bit more of that. heres the video, if youre interrested.
Hello, a friend recommended this game to me and wow. I really liked it. I made a video about it if anyone was curious.
Anyway, great game.
The game was quite enjoyable and immersive. Liked the concept of a dispatch call simulator. The karen was a nice bonus to the game. The voice recognition was a pretty cool feature too. ***spoilers*** i felt the monster was however unnecessary while it may or may not surprise people the experience of being the dispatch caller was by itself interesting. Again the game probably is trying to be true to the creepypasta so not a big issue to me. Also i wish it was more creepier though. Overall liked it. Good job devs! Keep making more!
Interesting game, However I realistically cant see anyone actually getting genuinely terrified or scared while playing this game. The voice acting is lazy, and distract away from the ambience. The office 'jump scares' are obvious and give themselves away quite early, and the narrative is lacking. There is no actual sense of connectivity here to the player and the character let alone any real in depth narrative to try and let us get attached to the world itself. Has a TON of potential, However severely lacking in general.
Scare Factor 1 out of 10
I actually enjoyed this game more than I expected! Really like the concept of it and was done well and very interesting. Would like to see this expanded on!
Tried out Dispatch, nice game.
that jumpscare scared me so bad OMGG
This was such a great game! It blew me away how the audio system worked and really integrated the player into the game! It was honestly really fun and the two 'stories' that happen before everything goes down was really fun and quirky!
(Video at the end if anyone is interested in watching!)
The calls and the environment becoming scarier was super engrossing and enthralling, of course enhanced by the voice system. It was all very well done.
My only suggestions to maybe improve the game in the future would be three things; One is to have a more emotional voices (Though I do realise that getting better voice actors is more expensive and it itself can be hard to do), the first call had the emotion of the caller being really worried about his doggo. The second call did suit the Karen vice of it, could have been more angrier, etc, but it had it's own 'drunk Karen' kind of vibe and was fine overall. Now for the third call; as intriguing and immersive as it was, the sort of emotionlessness of the wife a little bit kind of made it not as immersive. (This is just my opinion though, but I still found it fun and immersive!)
The second thing would be to have more stuff happen in the office and the room in front. The subtle writings were pretty good and really added to the ambience and it was refreshing as not many horror games add the subtle spooks, so really cool that you did! Maybe some life in the police office would also add some amount of immersion, but yeah, more things happening around would add a lot more to the environment, though the stuff that did happen was really well done!
The last thing would be the actual story and also the monster. Building up the story to what it was at a longer pace might have suited it; let the players slowly start to realise what's happening. Unless the players look at the file and look closely, they might not connect the dots; some might even brush off what the first officer said at the beginning because of your really cool mic system and funny stories. And building the story up would also allow the monster at the end to be slowly introduced. Maybe show a hand or a shadow, and then some other scary things that it does, and then at the end, the monster appears and kills the player. A build up would also suit the story rather than having the monster randomly appear and Chidori the player's character.
And as an avid Creepypasta reader, I saw the where your inspirations came from and was really neat to see how you made a game inspired from the story! Overall it was a really great game and tonnes of fun to play, you could make people pay for this and there wouldn't be any complaints. Hope to see if this audio system interaction with the game is developed as it was really cool to use and experience! Do take care and good luck with future projects and anything else!
I may seem like a pussy but this game scared me so thats why I call myself a pussy and I got scared so much that I screamed but I didnt know why...
Just finished streaming this game on my Channel (the language is in Indonesian). This is such an amazing concept. I love the voice recognizion mechanic. The last call was very intense and immersive because of it. Still doesn't understand why I managed to get the good ending though lol
I would love to see a game like this that's not horror. Would be very intense if we could guide people through intense emergency situation using voice.
got the good ending first try! really good game and i think it could be a full game
