A downloadable game for Windows

One stormy night at the onset of what should have been a nostalgic trip to the lake, Easter and his friends make a pit stop at an old, abandoned house along the side of the road. What should have been a short-lived indoor camping adventure, however, turns into a hellish nightmare when something begins hunting them down one-by-one.

The house is not what it seems, and memories from the boys’ past could be the key to everything… if they can only make it through the night.

  • Search for clues to reveal the truth!
  • Three different endings depending on how much of the story you uncover—can you unlock the true ending?


Easter is a independently-published horror adventure game developed using the RPG Maker VX Ace software. It’s recommended for mature audiences only on account of:

  • Strong language
  • Disturbing, thematic elements
  • Pixelated gore
  • Sexual violence

This game goes to some pretty dark places. Please keep this in mind when deciding whether to play our game. It's definitely not for the young and the squeamish.


The first game from Carrot Patch Games! We hope you like our short little horror game. Though the game has gone through some internal and external testing, there's always the chance for more bugs to pop up after a public release, so please write to us with any errors (or quirky oddities) you encounter in the game, and we'll get to them ASAP!

Nothing like a password puzzle to prove I'm stupid. That aside, I love this hidden gem. Especially the audio parts, those are fun.

I've passed the game and the three finals!

It has an interesting, tragic, and incredibly shocking story.

I have to admit that it has cost me quite to get all the finals, youbshould write a guide about it.

But it's worth discovering the tragic history of this game, and the plot twist in the true ending is amazing.

I hope you make more incredible games in the future!

Thank you so much for all your wonderful feedback and discourse about the game! It really means so much that you enjoyed the story and characters so much! :) And I am thinking of making a kind of hint-based walkthrough. I'm drawing up some new art to celebrate 1000 GameJolt/itch downloads, so I think I may include a little something in there!

I'm really enjoying this game so far, and I'm currently working on a let's play for it. (I plan to go through the entire game, lol) But one problem I'm having is the game is a bit laggy for me. I move around pretty slowly, and my actions are also very slow. It's probably just cause my laptop sucks though. Anyway, I can't wait to see what horrors this game has in store for me!

Amazing!! Thanks for playing and so glad you're enjoying it so far! Though I'm not sure why it would be laggy :/ I haven't noticed anything on my own machine or any other playthroughs that I've watched. I do know that RPG  Maker-made games can sometimes cause problems for some computers because of that way they run? But I'm not sure if that's the case here or if there are any settings that could reduce the lag... I hope you're still able to enjoy it though! And I really look forward to your let's play when you finish it! :)

Is there a trick or easier way to pass the part of the headphones?

I don´t know if they are my headphones or me, but I don´t know when I should move or where Muttword has moved, and if I should stay still in the part that sounds the heart, or move more?

A help please, I'm really enjoying the game, and I would like to finish it to discover the truth (Depending on the end that I get).

Hey! I'm happy to give you some tips and advice! To keep from being too spoilery on the comments page, could you shoot me an email? (carrot.patch.games@gmail.com) or you could also send me a DM on Twitter (@CarrotPtchGames)! :)

I am going to follow you!

Something about Horror and, RPG's go together well! I haven't played all the way through yet but, already I can feel the suspense and, atmosphere of this game. Seems like Ollie is the intelligent one of the group! haha

Thank you!! And loved watching your play-through! Excited that you're enjoying the game :) Olie's definitely the voice of reason most of the time, ahaha.

I found Olie's eyes!
(Although I don´t know if they or doctors will be able to reattach them)

Amazing! I think you're the first person who's found them, ahaha :D

I'm still stuck in the audio part, but I'll try to do my best 

(I don´t have headphones)

By the way, I have my suspicions about who is the masked, although I haven´t passed the game yet, and I don´t want to spoil... 

Could you write a guide in the future?

By the way, your game is great, I will try to pass it to me.

I'm thinking about it actually, yes! A non-spoilery guide for people who want the rest of the story but who are having trouble finding all the clues. I might whip something up.

I'm so glad you're enjoying the game, though! Thank you for playing it! :)

I'm definitely enjoying the game. As far as oddities go, not sure if the glowing star where the crowbar is was intended or not. Anyways here's my video. I'm gonna try for all endings as I can.

Amazing! Thanks so much for this great vid and looking forward to your next ones! As for the slightly glimmering star, yes, that's supposed to be there. Otherwise the crowbar would be next to impossible to find, ahaha.

(Spoilers in this video. Beware if you are playing.) Here's the second video of the game. I really like the headset only portion of the game so far though it'll be nice to take something flash up during the headset portion, mainly when there's no music, for a jumpscare. But that's just my opinion on the matter.

Thanks so much! Glad you're still playing it! Really loved watching you play through the sound-only portions. Quite entertaining and made me laugh a lot :D Thanks for making such fun videos!

(End Game Spoilers) So here's the last video in the game and it was both interesting and confusing at the end. Mostly on the fact of I'm not sure which ending I got. Anywho, it'll be nice to know which ending the player got at least after the final scene fades to credit. 

My suspicions of who was the masked were correct!

Try to get another ending, I think that final wasn´t the true ending, I think.

You got through the game! :D Thanks again for the wonderful series of vids! As for the endings, there isn't really a "bad ending" unless you count the various deaths throughout the game. There is a default ending, and then there's a track that will lead to two other possible endings that reveal more of the story if you discover all the clues, so that was just the default ending. That's good feedback about perhaps adding something before or after the credits! I'll look into maybe doing that...

If you want to try to get one of the other endings, I could give you some advice, if you'd like, but if not, no worries! Thanks for playing!

So, I'm very much enjoying the game so far, but I think I am a little stuck. I had the first "dream" I believe (like in the last screenshot at right on this page),  and am now controlling another character looking for someone who's gone missing. Despite wandering around in the dark and attempting to interact with objects, I'm unable to see how to progress. I've got a black bead in my inventory but trying to use it isn't yielding much either. Any help or a walkthrough available for this? It's hard to see in the dark, especially without a flashlight...



Hey! No worries! All you need to do is go through the door straight down from the middle of the room (the one that leads to the dining room). You need to press ENTER to open the door! If you need any other help, just ask! :)

Interesting RPG Maker Horror so far.... will be releasing moar!

Thank you so much for this great video and for playing the game! Love it so far and can't wait to see the subsequent parts!

^^ Thanks! Yup :P Hope to find all the endings.
