"Insecurities can bring out the worst in anyone—including Keldran and Ace, centuries-long friends with benefits. What starts off as a fun haunted house trip soon turns sinister, as they find themselves at the mercy of a ravenous spirit that wears their faces. If they cannot navigate their unspoken feelings and conquer their fears, they may find themselves as nothing more than silent spirits, wandering the halls forever."

Hello! I found out that the game is not supported by Windows 11.

(1 edit)

Our game runs on Ren'Py and there hasn't been an issue with Windows 11, it's likely due to your graphics configuration, please have a look here and see if it helps: https://github.com/renpy/renpy/issues/3044

Just... How bad of an idea was it to not have reread the store page after little under a year since downloading it, and doing both options while I have yet to read DUFE? ^^' How much have I spoiled/ruined Ace-related things for myself for when I get around to the main game?

Hey! Thanks for playing the game! Ideally it's best to play DUFE first but don't worry too much ^^ there's still plenty to enjoy!


Thank you for the reply! I loved Masquerade and am looking forward to the main VN!


Huh wasn't expecting this to have a price tag when I came back to check on it lol. Good game, played it around the time it came out. Was very enjoyable to play and I like Keldrans and Aces relationship a lot. it's very cute.

Yeah unfortunately we're really struggling to stay afloat so the price tag is needed. Glad you enjoyed the game :)

Unfortunately not

Quick question about the game. Is it rated PG-13 or R/NC17/NSFW?


Its sfw, there's innuendos but no nudity


Hi, might seem like a weird question but what font and font size does the game use? I have dyslexia so I'm trying to work out how difficult it would be for me to play this. Thanks!


Thanks a lot for this gaming pearl!
I really enjoyed the atmosphere and the chemistry beetween Kel and Ace <3 
The artworks are beautifully made and inspiring :)
Greetings, Wolfshade!

I love the art, the plot, and the animation! don't forget the voices uck especially Keldran's growl *shy* I was also amazed at the BGM and BG. Ahh *blush* gosh, I cant help but feel shy and blushing while reading their moment >///< Hurt my hand for accidentally hit the wall while fan girling lol

We're glad you enjoyed it 😉


Ahhhh, this is a wonderful addition to the DUFE canon!! Everything about it is beautiful - art, music, ui, va, writing, the works! Ace and Keldran are so cute together T___T I love them so much as well as their dynamic. Also I laughed out loud at the end with the "sexy times" music cue.

Can you please make android version i have some problem in my pc and i really want to play it please.


We actually already have an android version up on the google play store.

Any chance you could make this claimable for the sale. Not a big deal but I find it a bit more convenient to be able to download stuff again instead of having to store a copy locally.

In any case, this this is pretty cool. Great job and thanks the generous giveaway.


Yea sure, happy you enjoyed the game 😊

Awesome, thanks. I really appreciate it. And thanks again for making and giving away a very nice game.

Loved the narrator XD Ace desserves more for the line "His emotional blockages have emotional blockages" and Kel's snark makes me feel things XD 

Amazing ending, by the way. It's rare they feel satisfying to me, but there was absolutely no problem for me with this one. The intimacy felt special and like we as readers finally got everything this story had been working towards. Thank you, it was wonderful.

Edit: Oh, and hope you have a nice week!!!


Aww thank you for the lovely comment❤️We’re so glad to hear you loved the ending!


omg. i am in love with this. beautiful sprites, beautiful VA, beautiful UI, beautiful OST, beautiful story. nice work as always!!


Thank you so much !!! 🥰


The art is absolutely beautiful! The sprites work so nicely with the story. It delivers the feelings just right.

I like Ace, but omg Keldran... He is so gorgeous he owns my heart👀🔥and that voice acting 😩👌 beautiful!

Also, I loved the story perspective. It was really fun🤗❤️


Keldran is glad to know he does 😏

Thank you, we're happy you enjoyed it!! ❤️


Holllyyy. I mean, unholy. The only words I will use to describe this game are 'hot and heavy'. I swear to god I'm blushing from start to end. The little "HMMMMs" just omgggg. >//////<


Hahaha glad you enjoyed it ;)

Sfw or Nsfw?



Played the Keldran route and have to say, I found something relatable. Also I'm sure my imagination is enough XD


I loved this, I played it all in one night. The characters design and the art are so beautiful! And I loved the cgs!

(And sorry for the bad English, I'm not an English speaker)


No worries! Thank you so much for playing ! A big thank you from our artist as well for liking her work ❤️


I just finished playing this, and I wanted to say, the visuals are so polished. The art and animation looks so good! Thank you for making this visual novel.


Thank you Katy 🥰
