It's been way over 6 minutes but nothing's happening (other than the monster popping up every now and then) am I missing something or does time freeze when you concentrate?
Edit: Still a really well made game though :)
OOF Sorry for the late response.
Anyway, the game can be pretty random, so basically there's a very good chance that the "monster" simply did not appear at all.
Thank you for playing!
wtf how did it scare me
*double clicks concentrate and missed the "not for to long" and scared the frick outta me*
weird game but it did spike my anxiety levels
Completed hard mode first try, no deaths. Did it with normal too. I don't know how to show that with screenshots, cause the ending's the same.
Hey no worries, I believe you :)
Thanks for playing!
The games Todoroki's mom plays be like:
could you maybe tell me the exact mechanics of how the game works?
Here is how it works:
Basically, you have to boil your precious water, but while doing so, some undesirable things may appear. To avoid them, concentrate for a little while (around 4 seconds) and it should be gone. Rinse, repeat.
Now for hard mode:
If the thing shows it's actual face, just stare at it until it goes to another opening.
If it just shows it's eyes just concentrate like normal mode and you should be fine.
Just be careful, cus' hard mode IS kinda hard.
When I made this, I was a total noob at game dev. So yeah, sorry if the game isn't that clear on it's mechanics.
Have "fun" and good luck!
Really entertaining game! We liked it! The first jumpscare was really creepy! More of this please!
Good environment and keeps tension high at first however looses the horror element after seeing the enemy a few times and it turns into more of a routine adding something to do like stir the noodles and possibly something like hearing the sound and turning to the noodles and seeing the enemy would add to the tension however even though it has some flaws it is well made and playable on chromebook which is impressive
Hi! Thanks for playing!
About the adding and stirring noodles part, well...
If I ever make an expanded version of the game, I guarantee that there will be more stuff to do ;)
Kinda eerie vibe going on here! Love the game though!
Thank you so much for playing! I'm glad you liked it :)
WOO NOW ITS PLAY IN BROWSER
i really liked this game! the only ¨¨complaint¨¨ i have is that maybe the transitions between rooms are a little unnecessary, i dont know if i just went really fast to the left and right but my eyes ended up hurting a little lol
Yeah, I know that :P
But it will be fixed in an update that's coming after the jam! So keep an eye on it, it will have more content ;)
Thanks for playing!
Hi, just leaving a quick comment to say I really enjoyed this! The backstory during the concentration segments was intriguing and juuust vague enough that you've to use your imagination, and the sound effects signalling the 'visitor' approaching were unsettling. I genuinely felt anxious after a bit wondering which side He was going to pop up next, so it was plenty immersive too!
Look forward to seeing more stuff from you on here in future I hope, maybe even an expanded version of Water Boiling Simulator like you've hinted at possibly happening in some of your other replies!
Thanks again for the ten tense minutes! I'm off to make some noodles...

Gave it a Let's Play, unsure if it's meant to be difficult or not.
Hi there! Thank you so much for playing and recording the game!
About the difficulty:
The game originally was meant to be harder, but after some testing with a few friends, I found that most of those who didn't have any experience with this sort of genre had a lot of trouble playing it, so yeah, the game isn't meant to be very hard ;)
But, I'll definitely make a better version of the game in the future, and it WILL be harder! (I only had a little over a week to make and test the game lol)
But again, thanks for playing! Hope the experience wasn't too boring.
this game really gets your attention! I even screamed a couple times lol
The sound was perfect and super scary. The graphics looked great and playing was very fun. It reminded me of playing FNAF, and I like the storytelling you implemented in the game! Great game!
nice game (:
really great sound design on this one! Especially for something made in PICO-8! I really like the sprite of the monster coming through the door :)
This was a game that reminded me of FNAF but I was hoping that there will be some things to do while boiling water besides from watching out for my "enemy". The story telling behind the main character was relatively interesting and I felt that it could have been developed upon by adding a whole other section whenever the character is concentrating. The section could be about a memory that the main character had in the past, where the player can experience the events that the main character experienced which led to her extreme fear of her "enemy" while boiling water. Or maybe the player have to do other things while boiling water and watching out for the enemy like opening a packet of noodles, adding seasoning which all take some time so that the it would be more intense for the player to add in the noodles and seasoning while worrying about the sudden appearance of the "enemy". It is quite harmful to the eyes as I keep switching from left to right XD but cool concept and game overall!!!
Thank you for reading my comments and I wish you good luck in your future endeavours.
Hey thanks! Yeah, I realized later that it did hurt my eyes when looking around very fast, so yeah, I'll probably rewrite the game in the future....
But again, thank you so much for your honest review!
