Where gnarled hag 2?

Yeah fr

omg I remembered playing this a long time ago, I just rewatched it and realize again how good the game is! For a 2D game it's a good mix of puzzle and horror! Love the pixel artstyle of the game and definitely the end game is terrifying! Hoping to have some sequel or sort of this game <3

I played this game like a couple more times and the chase theme when the hag sees you is great so i made a 1 hour video of it 

I saw a playthrough of this game and i knew i had to play it.

I know this game is like 3 years old by now, but a sequel would be Great. This game definitely deserves one.

Im 15 years old and might look into making video games for a living.

If you ever decide to create your first game, I'm here to play it!🙌

Game Resource ?

Hellow author of this game How I Cant Get Game Resorce of this game ? Sprites ?

want to make this game mod for free. Can you give me sprites of this game ?


FANSTÁSTICO! Nenhum jogo desse estilo jamais me prendeu. Conheci o jogo por meio da minha namorada e diria que a primeira vista parecia ser um jogo como qualquer outro, porém, ao jogar e ir desbravando mais e mais, pude perceber todo o trabalho e carinho colocados neste projeto. Espero ansiosamente por uma sequência, afinal, o mal sempre está a espreitaaaa. Abraços do Brasil!

Love the combination of platformer and horror. You did a great job at this.

why do I find this video cursed and funny?


Will there ever be a sequel? I would love to see it!


I would like to pay money for this!

I desperately want to play this game but its doesn't support macOS 😭

Incredible. Scared the living crap out of me, and so creative! Onomatopia made it really easy, but I'm too wuss to try it without.


Hello! Me again! I did a video of this game for the spooky month. Even used the fan art I made as the thumbnail.


esta genial, super bien echo 10/10

the pixel art is amazing. i hated the chases lol in a good way

Do you plan to make a sequel to this game? 



Played yo John Wick game Pompasaur. It was so wild dude XD



I loved the game! So much that I had to make some fan art of it! :3


Really good!! Great work!


the pixel art is on point well done

Have you thought about adding new maps? It would be interesting


I loved the pixel art and the way the hag was drawn to make her look as disgusting as possible, environment also added to the horror factor and was very worth the time to play. Thank you for making this! 

Will this game release for mobile?


That's a good game, I've so much fun with this :)

I've completed the game a bit ago. Very awesome game!! Hoping for a part 2, possibly... 10/10! 


I love this game !

There will be a sequel?

the fact that you cant save just kills me everytime...literally but its a really good game


I played this entire game through without realizing you could run. Not an issue on the developers part, but instead I think a testament to how this game was still so fantastic even though I was missing an entire control! I'm dumb and apparently don't know how to read, but either way.

Fun environments and problem solving, this game combined both a good healthy amount of suspense and puzzle. The atmosphere was perfect, the little bits of exposition throughout were thoughtful and added to the overall experience. 

I can't believe this game was free, it was such a fun adventure for a night with me and my wife. I've recommended it to everyone I know who enjoy short fun games like this.

my community loved this game. the pixel art style is on point. well done

AMAZING game, I had a whole ton of fun playing. Super interesting game with really cool design,its great. Totally anxiety-filled 10/10 recommend

Not sure why I waited till now to play this game, it's really cool! A lot of stealth and trial and error, but it's entirely necessary in order to learn how to get out. Lots of tension and anxiety when the hag is around. And the look of the game is phenomenal! Overall, a fantastic experience! Great work!

I really love this game the character designs and animations is amazing, that witch looks crazy, and the gameplay with the puzzles is cool too. I really like 2d pixelated games a ton and this one is by far my favorite. 

This sure is a really good game. I really liked the animations and the graphic, even tho is a little bit short i still enjoyed this game.

Il gioco è esteticamente molto bello e ben fatto, per essere un 2D, genere che personalmente non apprezzo molto. Qui di seguito trovate un Gaemplay, per chiarirvi un po' le idee. Sicuramente è un titolo divertente e dove ci si può passare, tranquillamente, una mezz'oretta. Unica pecca, non ha praticamente rigiocabilità.

 P.S.: Spero non vi dispiaccia, che ho usato questa immagine, come miniatura 👉🏻👈🏻 

This is a really good game!! the sound effects, the esthetic, the graphics, the animations, everything!!!!! I'm impressed that this game is free. I'm in love ♡
