not gonna lie, i sleeped in mid game
Doctor Voldritch's Experiment
:edit: getting an influx of people so to clarify this is a sfw game so please don't shit up my comment section with coom or send me shit. I will bonk you.
This is a sci fi visual novel intended to hypnotize you with suggestions/triggers and a bonus QnA at the end. For those not familiar with hypnosis, the game is suppose to relax you and make you calmer (think of it similar to a guided meditation app but with a science-y theme). I didn't make it with the intention for people new to hypnosis at all. Please research hypnosis before doing it, especially recreational hypnosis.
It seems you signed up for an experiment at a lab testing the effects of mind control. The experiment is led by a rather calm yet eccentric doctor named Voldritch who will help you through the experiment and ease your mind leaving you, well, mindless.
The web version runs a bit slower depending on your computer/internet so there's always the downloadable options.
Made by me and with help with my friend Chef.

I AM THE EGGMAN
DUN NU NU NU NU NUN NU NU NU NU NU NUN
correction: when he just repeats himself over and over it tricks my brain into looping a hypnotic pattern in my mind.
the noise of the text at the beginning made me want to throw my notebook against the wall, cool game, I really got sleepy, too bad the doctor couldn't stop talking and I had to listen to the noise of the text (seriously, man change that noise)
I'm on the floor... I played this before and I'm playing it again and he got me on the floor all over again...
JUST ONE KISS, JUST ONE PLEASE
SORRY I KEEP DELETING MY REVIEWS BUT I CANNOT FORM THE RIGHT WORDS TO DESCRIBE HOW AWESOME AND INCREDIBLE AND FASCINATING THIS GAMEW IS IM GOUNG INSANE OMG IT REALLY WORKS AND IT DOES IT WELL IM SO IMPRESSED AND FREAKING OUT IN A GOOD WAY
tbh d8dh6 ec-ecv6 ty8s ti ew94i
that was supposed to say: "tbh didn't expect this to work"
Can I use your characters in battle against cosmic eldritch demons? FICTIONAL cosmic eldritch demons.
Yeah you can if you credit me. Feel free to send me the fanfiction lol
This left me tired
please do not tell me I was the only one that thought doctor voldritchs was going to be a girl
This was really nice! I'm having trouble writing this, but yeah!!! I liked it :D loved the burrito ending and the secret hehe <3
i feel so relaxed and heavy, i almost dont want to go back to being unhypnosised. i found this is relaxing, he seems so welcoming and kind, and when he was repeating phrases, i really liked the speaking noise repeating along with it. it feels like im really being talked to! this was incredible, and i can't imagine how you made this so effective! i read the comments before playing, and i didnt understand how typing afterwards could be so difficult, but now i really do understand.. I CANT WAIT TO PLAY THIS AGAIN!! i really did become this fictional guys servant huh...
I played this once before but didn't pay full attention to it, but this time I did so it worked! I replayed this bc I'm having a bio test on Monday so I played this to see if it would work and- yes, it did, I'm very calm and relaxed, so if I ever panic on my test I can just say "stop and smell the roses" bc it makes me smile anytime I say or type that ^^ but it works better when I imagine the scene and the text with him saying it. Anyway- thank you so much for making this awesome game! I hope you have a good day or night, same with any other random human reading this too! Be sure to eat something if you haven't, drink some water, get a healthy amount of sleep and if you are in school, do your homework, but don't stress yourself out from it either.
wow. my typing register probably undersells my true feelings but wow. this was great..i'm still having trouble even keeping my head up and using my fingers to even type this out...this worked way too well than it had any right to, i love dr. voldritch in every way...i'll be his subject any day..
the only problem i had was that having to look down, away from voldritch and the spiral to read the text did probably make it a bit less effective unfortunately...
Aw i'm glad you enjoyed it! I was long thinking of putting a text box above him but felt it would look weird.
I know I'm being hypnotised but I feel so loved and cared for man. Head pats MAN HEAD PATS
I Love your art style so much it very much reminded me of wario ware (in the best way its my total fav!) such a cutely written doctor hes too charming!!! I LOVED IT!!!
also loved the secret it was too cute!!!!
awwww thanks!!!!! He sure is a charmer haha
Hoo boy this was a lot of fun! Are you a specialist in hypnotism? cuz this was way more effective than I expected! Even while editing the video I felt drowsy and relaxed! I love Doc Voldritch he's such a cute character! I'll put a link to my video for you to see once I finished. Great job excellent job!
Aw thanks! Nah I mostly do recreational hypnosis but hypnosis itself is fairly easy to learn haha.
i love it hahaha
I think it would be better if he had voice acting or somethig more than just eyes
I make these games for free. Getting a professional voice actor would cost a lot of money, as of which I don't have to spend.
I was already awake when playing this and while I understand the premise was to relax, I just felt annoyed at the guy. DIdn't trust him at all, which is counterintuitive to the point of this game. It was fun though!
You might prefer lavender labs instead as this game was not intended for newbies to recreational hypnosis which you clearly were. It has a comprehensive intro to hypnotism. I made this game at the time assuming only people within the hypnosis community would play it as no one knew of my work outside of that. Hope this helps.
I really liked how in the end you could flirt with the doctor.
violently flirting with him to the point you chase him out of the lab. coolest game
I really loved the music!!
Just left a review but GOSH what an amazing game you've created! I'm quite familiar to hypnotism and this did the trick! I still have the game in the background and the ticking music is still making me pause in a drifting state while typing this. You've done an amazing job writing the script, creating the character, building a perfect scenery. Overall, gosh amazing!
Honestly this was my first kind of "hypnosis" visual novel and along the way when Dr. Voldritch said that the MC was focused on the spiral I couldn't help but look and go "Wow.... Spiral" and I didn't realize I spent a few minutes staring at it. This was honestly really great, the repetitive dialogue was really great because I couldn't help but zone out in the middle of reading it. Also I love how Dr. Voldritch goes about, he's so calm and like, some sort of siren where they lure you in? His words both make sense but since they're kind of long you start to unconsciously drift off with it. And the music was really nice, especially at the start when it sounded like they were ping ponging from each earbud to the next. Great game!
EDIT: I saw the secret, I'm wheezing. I wanna join them!
i want to be hugged. and to give hugs. to this man. this is the one officer. idk how else to express my joy. i can hardly type properly. this is the happiest ive been. im now banning all thoughts. ty
I’m playing on mobile and the music isn’t working, can you fix this? I’m playing in browser.
dr. voldrich: "youwill slowy feel your heartbeat blah blah blah with the music."
me with the sound off: what music???
It's a good game and I like it! (I want Dr Voldritch sm.)
There is a sequel! and a third game in the works.
i feel like ur not supposed to mix hypnosis and drugs but im high af and this is a whole other experience it was amazing also voldritch is hot as fuck
Soo, I have been interested in trying hypno for a long time, but I always got the NSFW part of it, lol. Now talking abt the "game" It really fk works. Woa. No words. English is not my first language so I was a bit curius if this would work... Sooo in my mind I translated some of the prhases like "sleppier or drowsy" to have a better outcome in the feeling. And well the dr. he seems like a nice person XD.
Aw i'm so glad you liked it and surprised it worked even with the language barrier! Hope you had an amazing time.
I decided to play this after taking a test since we weren't doing anything and ended up falling asleep. Anyways he's hot I WANT HIM!!!!!!!!
I do not know if it worked as well as it could have as I am always a bit on alert due to past traumas, but that is nobody's fault.
What I *do* know, is that I really really want to give Voldritch a hug as he deserves it, and I deserve it too! (Unless he is not okay with being touched, if that is the case I will respect his wishes and give him an air hug)
Edit: Things have been very stressful for me the past week, I came back here and I felt a lot better about things afterwards. I have definitely grown attached to Dr. Voldritch.
I WAS EXPECTING A HORROR GAME AND THEN HE TOOK OFF HIS SUNGLASSES AND I JUSFT GOT PUNCHED IN THE STOMAHC
WHY FUNNY SCIENCE MAN HOT???????????
somehow this game was recommended while looking through a list of Shrek visual novels, but nonetheless, personally give this a 10/10, came into life at the perfect timing, was surprisingly effective, and became an enjoyable part of routine
although question, does Voltritch have a canonical height? this question is for reference purposes
I guess voldritch is shrektacular lol thanks!
He's 5' 11''... it is an ongoing meme his height haha
I MADE AN ACCOUNT FOR THIS!! gosh this vn is so good- i genuinely felt like i was about to fall asleep LOL had to stop myself cuz they day just started,, i loved it sm i recommended it all my friends HAHHAAH ANYWAY i love dr voldritch, (the character design is so good??) i think i have a tad bit of crush on him?? BUT OTHER THAN THAT this game is fantastic! i think could use this as someone who struggles with falling asleep <3
