1932, you just won a Mansion in a card game. However the place is Haunted by a Weeping woman known to locals as Llorona.

A classic Mexican Folk tale comes to life in this Horror Game. Solve the mystery of a Haunted Mansion known as 'La Quinta' and the Ghost of a Weeping woman that wanders the property.

Winner of the Best overall game in the Unidos Game Jam 2020

ENG

The Real History behind this Project
This Game is based on the Famous mexican folk tale of La Llorona (pronounced Yorona for non-spanish speakers) as well as some local stories of Northern Mexico and the mexican Revolution. The House is based on 'La Quinta Touche' A Mansion located in Northern Mexico that is said to be Haunted, was actually build on top of a Graveyard, the Owner lost in a card game and it also became a Hospital during the Revolution.


For all this reasons the mansion is called the House of Tears by the locals.

As a fan of ghost stories I got inspiration from both the House and The legend of Llorona to develop this game, as well as some local folk tales and stories from the mexican revolution.

Most of the pictures and decoration around the house are actual pictures from the mexican revolution, as well as religious imagery and pictures and textures taken from Pascualita, a famous mexican haunted mannequin that legend says is actually an embalmed woman who died just before her wedding, now waiting for her groom eternally, and because of this Pascualita has been seen by many moving by itself.
 

An interesting fact about the mannequin is that locals don't actually fear her, but they actually respect her and have a lot of love for her. For this reason locals refer to her as "The most beautiful bride in Chihuahua".

1932, Ganaste una Mansión en un juego de cartas. Sin embargo el lugar se encuentra embrujado por una mujer conocida por los locales como La Llorona.

La leyenda mexicana cobra vida en este juego de terror. Resuelve el misterio de la Mansión embrujada conocida como  'La Quinta' el de la mujer que llora y deambula por las noches.

La historia real detrás del Proyecto. 

El juego se baso en la famosa leyenda mexicana de la Llorona asi como historias del Norte de México y la revolución mexicana. La casa esta basada en 'La Quinta Touche' una mansión del Norte de México que se dice embragada y que realmente fue construida sobre un cementerio, el dueño perdió en un juego de cartas y ademas fue hospital durante la revolución mexicana. Por todas estas razones se le conoce a la mansión como 'la casa de las lagrimas.

   

Personalmente como fanático de las historias de fantasmas, tome inspiración de la casa y de la leyenda de la Llorona para desarrollar este juego. La mayoría de las fotos y decoración de la casa son de hecho fotografías de la revolución, ademas de imágenes religiosas y fotos y texturas tomadas de Pascualita,  un famoso Maniquí embrujado cuya la leyenda cuenta que es en realidad el cuerpo embalsamado de una mujer que murió antes de su boda, quedando así condenada a esperar a su novio eternamente y por esa razón Pascualita ha sido vista moverse por si sola por mucha gente.
 

Interesante es que al maniquí lejos de asustar a los locales, le tienen mucho respeto y cariño, tanto que le apodan 'la novia mas bonita te Chihuahua'.

I had a lot of fun with this! I'm really glad you decided to not go the route of chase scenes, as I feel like that would've ruined it. Just good creepy ambiance and perfect amount of jump scares! Keep it up!

Love The Game And Also The Jump Scares😅😅😅

Great game, but I honestly wish it was with modern day graphics; I think that would be SUPER scary! I mean, who doesn't know about La Llorona? Or any other forms of her... The White Lady...

Anyway, skip to 15:46 for my gameplay. I jumped a few times lol.

This is a pretty cool game, I love the graphics, it looks exactly like a ps1 or ps2 game. I never grew up with this story like the Hispanic community did but I found the story very interesting. The only issue with the game I had was figuring out what to do with the cards. (kinda spoilers) The item in question never looked, to me at least, like something to interact with so I was stuck for over 20 minutes running around until I just watched someone elses video to figure it out

I really, really enjoyed this game!

It has a really great atmosphere, and really spooked me out. I really enjoyed the fact that it was based on a real folklore, which was entertaining and quite educational reading through the itch page.
And of course, I love PSX aesthetics, so this game was a home run for me, well done!

Here's my gameplay for anyone interested:

Thanks for playing. I saw your video first on reddit lol, I leaved a comment in your video :)

Loved the game! PSX style is always appreciated and the atmosphere was way more tense than typical indie horror fare.

Thanks for playing I hope you enjoyed it!

Awesome stuff! Would love to see more like this! The puzzles were great! 

Would've preferred if the appearances weren't so scripted. But even though they were it still scared the CRAP out of me!

Well done!

Like, Share and Sub if you guys enjoy the video 😊

Llorona is a fantastic PS1-style horror game with a lot of thought and care behind it. I played one of the developer’s previous works, which was more of a short, experimental experience (Come to Play), but saw the quality in such a brief adventure. So it comes as no surprise that this beefier experience of Mexican folklore would be so good. Llorona delves into some old-school survival horror gameplay techniques, such as exploring the mansion and its grounds, finding items to be used elsewhere to proceed, solving puzzles and finding notes and diary entries that piece the story together. Throughout, Llorona never loses that eerie quality. I think it’s one of the better horror games released here in awhile. If you’re a fan of the genre, it’d be a shame to miss this. 

Thank you for playing! It means a lot that I got you with a scare. You're not an easy person to spook in my experience haha

Loool when Llorona scared you and you said "asshole" I felt like you were talking directly to me cuz I put her there to scare. That made me really happy, thanks for playing
