Otherland is an interactive visual novel made in RPG Maker VX Ace. It is a whimsical horror based on Alice in Wonderland (book) and inspired by other horror titles like Little Nightmares, Fran Bow, Ib, and Pocket Mirror, while still having its own personal charm. It tells a story about how nothing can be ever be perfect and perfectionism isn't always perfect - this includes life not being perfect itself. That no matter how beautiful paradise may seem, it still has its flaws.

β€» This game isn't suited for those who have trouble handling serious topics found in horror such as depression, manipulation, blood, and brutal deaths. 

β€»Please note that despite the game being in 2nd person and having exploration elements, it is still advertised as a visual novel - in another perspective.

β€» To get the most out of the experience, please wear headphones.

 I've noticed the majority that have been leaving ratings, have not  been telling me what they didn't like. Don't forget that if you leave a rating, to leave a comment so I know what you think! 🐣


This game is beautiful. The graphics, the music, and I can tell the storyline is gonna be very bittersweet. I really enjoyed it and was sad when it ended so really looking forward to the next one! The only thing I would suggest is adding a volumn control within the game. The music, although beautiful and very well done, was very loud and I couldn't fix it on my editing software. But other then that, very well done and looking forward to the rest!!!

Thank you for doing a let's play of my game. Yes, I am going for a bittersweet, pessimistic story rather than an optimistic one. The game's theme sticks to life having it's ups and downs / never being perfect or fair. It doesn't stop the characters from having good moments, however. It wouldn't be any fun if they didn't win sometimes!

 I'm used to loud music and sounds, so I'll try to turn the music down in the future when the songs are on the louder side. I know there are a few very loud songs in the game and I'll fix the volume in-game. Another way to solve the volume issue in the meantime is to alt tab out and turn your volume down until I can finish the full version of the chapter!


That was creepy...I really love the music!

Thank you! I did put a lot of work into researching royalty free music. Thanks to the H/MIX website (where the soundtrack of Mad Father and some other RPG maker games come from - Akiyama is literally one of the best!) I was able to find some of the best foreign royalty free music makers! It really helped set the atmosphere for the game.
