The music is amazing, the overall aesthetic and the photographs and everything seems great; the addition of the German handwriting is absolutely stunning too. Made me smile that I could read and understand it. The story itself is also really well-put together. The characters are genuinely nuanced in ways that, if you think about a little deeper, beyond the scopes of this short game since not everything is really shown, will make you ache. You're gonna have to click everywhere, but the little details make it worth the time exploring. They add onto the experience, as well as the characters of Gerda, Joseph and more. The fact your choices directly impact what kind of ending you get is also really nice for this type of game. 

SpoilersLike when you choose to believe Joseph every time, the option to leave him disappears. The only choice that makes Gerda suspicious enough to leave Joseph, regardless of whether she believes his other lies or not, is the fact he owns a gun when it's illegal. It's such a nice addition to how she really can't excuse every single one of his claims, or lies in this case, even though she seems terrified to actually confront him on it all.

Stellar game; loved every second of it!

puzzles were a bit difficult, but all in all it's a nice game. I'm no historian, so I'm not sure, but this seems rather accurate to it's time! The art and music are absolutely splendid, too

Great game, had fun playing!



Agree with all the previous praise. Short but excellent game!

That was a really fun game. Nice atmosphere, art and little puzzles. I definitely dumped Joseph tho, Gerda deserves better. Great job!

I loved this game so much! I low-key expected joseph to shoot Gerda in the end because she left. Obviously, that didn't happen. I definitely think joseph was out killing people for some cash. Several things indicate that he did. I also think he was cheating on her—that poor thing. I do hope that everything worked out for her in the end, even if she is just a character in a game.


I believe, that some of the moments are unreal and unclear, for instance:

Kate has a choice over picking two doors, one with pittering sounds, and the other with dead silence - when I chose the silence-one, she was dead because of many zombies eating - and it was a reason for it to be quiet insine... look, I don't believe that 2+ zombies feeding themselves vigorously over a dead man's body would be literally silent, and sounds of them biting and throwing around the flesh, added to already splashing blood everywhere, would make a LOT of noise.

I love the graphics, art, and the whole game concept, but please, make it playable. Thank you!

This was such a fun game!! I adored the subtle details that helped flesh out the characters. Gerda feels like such a sweet girl, with her fondness of little things like certain candy and the smell of freshly cleaned clothes, how she wants to remember her parents' house, and her admiration of her friend, Margot. I really rooted for her and wanted her to get away from Joseph. Even then, Joseph charmed *me* with his gifts and poems for Gerda, and his joke about playing "finders keepers" with the money. I didn't believe him when he dismissed the gun, job termination, passports, and money, but I pretended to anyways. I just didn't want to make him mad. So immersive! I really felt like I was put in Gerda's shoes during the confrontation.

what is the suitcase code i dont mind needed spoilers 

That was short and fun game. I wish we could see what happened after spoiler the marriage ending tho. It sounds like their relationship wasnt so great.

Amazing game! I loved everything. It looks great, is very short and the story is just perfect. Keep the great work.

My brief review: https://mrdavepizza.com/doubts-fulmen-review/ Hey, I enjoyed this one quite a bit some time back. The illustrations and powerful storytelling really did it for me. I think a lot of people have probably experienced this type of scenario, especially back then, and it really made me think. I made a little video and write-up on my blog. Just wanted to share, and say thank you for making this!

Thanks for engaging so well with the comments.  I know some popular works make that really complicated time-wise, but it's always good to see a creator take the time to return the kindness of a comment!  You're awesome.


Great game! I really am a fan of your work! How do you make these games? The dialogue reflects the time as it should, the visuals are nice to look at, and the story grows just enough that it's interesting, but not too much that it's a far-fetched conclusion! I love it!

Thank you so much! :)

Do you want to know with what tools I make my games or just how I think of them in general?

For doubts I used the Tyrano Builder engine, which is a no code engine, because I was still testing the game dev waters, but I've since switched to Ren'Py and am learning Unity atm.

As for thinking of them- taking long walks helps! :)


I want to play this game but it won't work. 3 messages pop in chinese..what should I do?

Hey Eunoia! That‘s strange - did you download it or are you playing in your web browser?

On the web.

Hm, the version of the engine I used for doubts is now outdated, so maybe it‘s incompatible with the browser you‘re using. You could try another browser. If that doesn’t work, you can always download it, no errors should show up in the local version!




I think Joseph might be a spy or a cheater, since he has a gun and many identities.


Really enjoyed this game. I enjoyed the puzzles in it.

Thank you for playing!! :)


I liked this game - played it for my Youtube channel! I do like that there are a couple of endings. The puzzles weren't too hard either.

a nice little short puzzle game! I would recommend it, it's just a short game that you could play if you have a lot of spare time.


I hate Joeseph! What a chap! I thought he was out cheating the whole time. Mans really gets angry with a smart lady.


for some reason i suspected Joseph of actually cheating on Gerda and going out with Margot (idk about the rest of you)


Really loved the game, it had intresting clues and the dialogue and inner monologue was realistic and kept me thinking. The art was also absolutely gorgeous

Thank you!! I'm happy you enjoyed playing :)


I ship Gerda and Margot soooo bad. After playing the game I picture them together and happy, even with the war. Beautiful game, love the arts.

Well, Gerda did mention how pretty she thinks Margot is quite a bit haha 

I hope they're happy too!


I personally loved this, it was very intriguing. Keep up the good work! 

Thank you <3


This was a really enjoyable game to play! I can't wait to see what else you create in the future.


Thank you!! Glad you liked it! I‘m actually working on a project right now that‘ll (hopefully) be quite interesting :)


Why hello! :D

The artwork is really nice in this game! I may have really overthought the puzzles, but the 20's vibes are immaculate. I hope my commentary does this game justice- I just want Gerda to live her best life. She is a queen and she deserves better this duuude.


Hello to you too! :)

Thank you for playing!! Your commentary and - of course - the voice acting was fun and I really enjoyed watching your video (although I had a minor heart attack when the bug with the questions happened - I‘ll have to look into that) 

Btw, if you‘re still interested in finding the code, maybe you could look at the nightstand next to the clock...?



I've been trying to download your game but it keeps saying I have "No Permission". How do I fix the problem? This game looks really interesting and I would like to check it out.


Hi! First of all: Thank you for your interest in my game!! :)

It‘s weird that the site requests some kind of permission, I haven‘t seen that before. 

Maybe you could try the alternative download mode? If you‘re on the downloads page, there should be a small grey link on the right called „Downloads not starting?“ Clicking on it will allow you to enable the alternate download mode, which should work if your region is blocking itch.io‘s CDN.

Also check if you have a VPN enabled. I‘ve heard that in some cases that could mess with people’s downloads too.

Good luck <3


Only 2 endings, right? Also, I really enjoyed the game, although I got stuck a little bit at the "type in" one ;-;

Yes, only two endings :)

I‘m glad you enjoyed it! Did you manage to figure the type in one out in the end? (also don‘t worry, one of my testers got stuck too haha)


Yes I did it somehow =))) Thanks for asking


Wow! The game looks so good, I loved the quality of the story and the art! I had a lot of fun playing!

Thank you <3


A beautiful game. Loved the story and the art style.


Thank you for playing! <3


This was a pretty fun adventure, it was fun to discover the secrets and see the "excuses" of Joseph, the art is fantastic and the music merged very well with the atmosphere of the game, most devs can't achieve that for some reason, and the way how you used the environment was pretty smart, I would never think of "hiding" this here or there, hope to see more!

Thank you for playing!! I‘m glad I achieved the atmosphere I was going for :)

doubts itself is not going to be continued, but I am already working on something new - so there will be more!

This is a very good game, it was fun to find out both endings and all the secrets. And I love the music. The art is nice also, good job! 100% would play this again.


Thank you for the motivating compliments <3 

I‘m happy you enjoyed the game!


The art style is so pretty! Plus I really love the music :) This is really good. I enjoyed playing and discovering the two endings :) 

Thank you! I‘m glad you had fun!! Congrats on unlocking both endings :)




Thank you <3


Very good use of the small environment, and I liked the pace of the build-up. Had me going on one trail only to surprise me later. Really nice work! 


Thank you for playing!! I had fun watching you figuring out the story and sharing your thoughts :) 


Glad you liked it. Digging through everything was quite a ride of discovery. :)


The art and music are just perfect. Art especially reminds me of Rusty Lake for some reason lol. Writing is charming. Just a lovely experience

Thank you!! <3

I‘ve actually never heard of Rusty Lake - I might have to check it out!


This is a true masterpiece, the art, the music and the story are all amazing. I'm glad I found  this game because I had such a great time playing it. Hope to see more of you Fulmen :)


I‘m very flattered, thank you! <3 

There will definitely be more of me in the future :)


the art and music and the small details that you've put into this game are amazing! while playing I really felt transported into this time period and was rooting for Gerda to find out all of her shady boyfriend's secrets u_u I wish she'd run away with Margot instead :') A really beautiful game!! 💛💼


Thank you so much!!! I‘m glad you had fun playing! <3 

And who knows... maybe it‘s not too late to run away with Margot?
