My favorite indie horror game so far! I love the concept, ps2 style :)

I enjoyed this one I had to play it again and get the Good Ending, I am glad I did after being able to see both endings.  I highly recommend this game to those who like other games from Chillas Art.  

This was a fun and enjoyable game.  It had a creepy story to it and lots of creepy situations.  I originally purchased this on Steam but had to show some support here too.  Here is a playthrough with the bad ending.

Finally got around to playing it and I wish I hadn't waited. So GOOD!! Huge fan of your work. Very creepy stuff!

First ever game of yours I've played. What a brilliant game! 

Terrified me. I enjoyed the graphics style, and the big parts of nothing going on really meant the scares were much larger.

Check out my video.

I played this on stream and my audience LOVED it!

I loved this game so much!!!!So so so good!!Thank you so much for making this games!!💜💜

Admittedly I had a hard time getting through the slow pacing of the first half.  But I implore you to persevere as the 2nd half really takes it up a notch!  

I didn't know that it was actually a PS2 & VHS: Found Footage Styled Horror Game!

Love your games, did  a play through recently of the Convenience Store

I didn't realize you put everything on itch! Here is some no commentary playthroughs I did awhile back :)

Please watch it and Subscribe!


This game has very spooky vibes. The walk to work had me on edge the entire time (not a fan of the dark) 🙈🙈🙈!

This is a great game I really enjoyed it.

Hai there!!
Finally got the time to play this one! The quality is just breathtaking, although the character models are not that good... not 7* out of 5 as the environment is, but 4* for me. The neighborhood was something so good that almost gave me tears of joy (not shown ofc xD ) of how much i wanna visit those kind of places!
I wonder what these kind of workers actually go through... Go leave a comment in the video about that situation!

I played this game, it was great to play through twice 

i played it here if you are intresting in the game

I loved the feral child hehe


Honestly this was the shittiest purchase i've ever made. save your money..

I mean this game has potential.. the developer has skills, i'll give them that. although.. this is just.. awful story telling


  • The developer has done a good job, just needs to work on this more.
  • A couple semi-okay jumpscares
  • Spooky ghost, well made model


  • You never find out WHY the hauntings occurred
  • The tapes sent to you are literally pointless? they explain nothing
  • The scariest part is a jumpscare that the coworker causes you.
  • Why was the manager murdered? 
  • Why of all place.. is a convenience store being haunted?
  • No story behind the bridge falling other than a man fell down... does nobody repair it? It's just a nuisance beacuse you have to walk around to the alternate route (the long way) EVERY NIGHT
  • The ending.. sucked ass?
  • You are able to control the CCTV cameras, rotate them left to right what seems 1 cm?
  • Character models need a major touch-up.
  • The developer obviously put a lot of work into it, but it seems they lost motivation halfway through and just wanted to release it ASAP to earn a quick buck.
  • most importantly:  There is no instruction on what to do near the end with the TV's. I had to look it up on youtube. I assumed that I had to turn on the TV's that the boy was looking at but like... even zoomed in on the CCTV.. you just can't tell which f*cking tv the little boy is looking at.

I am sorry that my review is quite negative.. I did expect more of this game seeing as I did pay for it. I am critical of this simply BECAUSE it costs people money.

Would I recommend it to others?
at this stage.. no, definitely not.

Interesting :P

This game scared me really good lmao:D

I picked this up on steam ( right now it's 10% off folks, though it's  cheap to begin with ) ..

I was extremely impressed by the graphics, the atmosphere.. everything was great, I surprisingly didn't jump at any of the jump scares but they were still great.. I'm just pretty seasoned with horror at this point :) .. 

The only frustration I had is how absolutely dark it was walking to work each night, the first night was fine and you could see around but after night one it was extremely dark and I kept getting lost, so much of the game play was spent trying to find the path to the store again.

I did get stuck at one part in the game with the tvs .. but I figured out pretty quick what was going on there.. 

I thoroughly enjoyed the game, it was one of the best I've seen on here so far for mood and overall atmosphere.. especially great sounds, the dark brooding ambiance was excellent.. 

I also greatly appreciate that you can disable the camera look / VHS effect .. that always kind of annoys me after a while, so thank you for making that optional.

I also bought Stigmatized Property but haven't yet played it.


Loved this game! Got both endings, surprised that throwing it out ended in the same ending as watching it though.

That's good to know.. I spent a good 45 minutes to an hour playing it, I wouldn't want to play through again for what is essentially the same ending with just some slightly added content.. 

Still though, a very excellent game indeed!


I  think there may be actually three endings.. 

1. You watch it
2. You throw it away in the trash ( probably ends the same as 1 )
3. You send it to someone else (return to sender, which I chose )

I just saw some video of what happens if you watch it.. that skips what I saw when I sent it off, I essentially got a bunch of backstory on what happened there.

I imagine throwing it away probably also does the same as what watching it does..  neither one probably gives you the backstory.

So TECHNICALLY two endings since two of them end the same.. but there's three possible choices. 

You live or die.. I lived

You aren't wrong! There are 3 technically, I tried all of them when I played through it in my video, but I was sort of disappointed getting the same ending after going through the game a second time. It didn't stop a third attempt to get the "send it to someone else" end though haha


HAUNTED Japanese Convenience Store! | The Convenience Store | 夜勤事件 (Full Game, Ending 2)

I love the horror games from Chillas Art and this one is no different! Come see all the horror in full!

Show post...


Very slow buildup, but the nightmare hits hard. My only gripe was that I had to play the whole game again to get the second ending. That coupled with how slow everything moves requires a lot of patience to get through twice over, but the good ending is worth it in my opinion. Here's my playthrough: 


did you go for the third ending? 


I had no idea it was an option! I might retry this to get the third!

The sleep paralysis ending was a bit disappointing but the game was overall great, nice take on the night shift horror subgenre.

Had fun, slow start - but I know it'll get a little more tense later on ;o

Brilliant bit of slow burn horror, really creeped me out!

Really love these games by this dev! Very slow burn to just complete terror.

I love the new style of not running and screaming. Walking I can handle. It would be great if you could fix the issue that video/brightness/etc settings aren't saved (previous games had same issue).
