Girl in the Attic is a short suspense/thriller visual novel that I created for the 20 Second Game Jam. This game is my first full visual novel game that doesn't include any experimental gameplay element. It's partly inspired by the original story of Naughty Laundry and just got caught up in my imagination.

Depending on the response to this game, I might expand it, add more content, and make a full version, among other possibilities.

Girl in the Attic's gameplay is your typical multi-path visual novel. It's purely a visual novel experience and has a complete focus on an immersive narrative experience.

The current version currently has 3 endings.

I really want an ending, where Mr.Klein do stuff with her but with her agreement.


was kinda hoping i could WILLINGLY fuck mr klein but oh well


I wanna hug, protect and give her food


Will there be an expansion of the game ? Like a part2 because I love it !


I was kinda expecting porn when I got the "Adult" ending.

When will there be translations into another language? your other games?

genuinely asking and not trying to be hateful or mean, does the bad ending include SA? because by the looks of it, it looks VERY much like that.

im asking because i do not want to play a game like that ๐Ÿ˜ญ


mhm it does i risked it for you my guy๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ”ฅ


Best if you make the choice to simply not play it then. These are not the games for you. Find fun and happiness elsewhere. Best of luck to you. Good on you for asking first. 


I'll say it good it got me immerse into the Visual novel, Sad that it short tho. [5 Stars]


She's so cute it hurt me so much to see her in such situations, I would absolutely love to see more of her, and hopefully she will be able to have a better ending


Hello, do you have any contact information? I want to make friends with you.

I chose the roasted chicken and i lost.. BUT WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK IS THAT END SCREEN?! AND "You got caught and will now suffer a shameless fate"? BITCH I KNOW SHE GON GET WHIPPED! NOW I KNOW WHY THIS HAD THE ADULT MARK ON! THIS FEATURES SEX!!!!!


That end scene might look adult and sensitive, but I personally just find it pretty hilarious xD


whar ๐Ÿ’€๐Ÿ’€๐Ÿ’€




You've been through some pretty messed up shit in life haven't you? No wonder why I like your games xD Glad you're making the most out of it... 

Why would you find rape funny?

how do you winn this game


Eat a sandwich.

whar ๐Ÿ’€๐Ÿ’€๐Ÿ’€

You're right.

Although I always thought that was kind of weird... Let me explain:

Because don't you think he would notice his "perfectly made sandwich" made for work or whatever reason for tomorrow went missing out of the refrigerator suddenly overnight?.

I'm just saying, I don't just make a sandwich the night before and forget about it lol... She's going to get caught either way if those are her only options... Especially over time.

And she could have just made ramen from searing hot water out of the sink. I've done it loads of times. No cooking involved. What, is his hot water not running?. xD. She really is an idiot lol. 
Although not very nutritional, a missing cup of Ramen is a lot less noticeable than a premade sandwich. At least it will be something to fill her belly with.
I do not agree that Ramen should be a "game over"

...God have mercy on her soul once he looks up in that empty attic with no where for her to hide or run away because his sandwiches kept turning up missing though and he put two and two together. 

At least the Turkey made sense lol. Moving that would make a lot of noise and definitely be noticeably missing. 

... I'm also there is not another option and/ or ending where she can choose to approach him in the bedroom... 


But the guy is a very light sleeper, wouldn't turning on the water from the sink instantly wake him up?

Suppose it depends on the faucet. Some are quiet. Some are not. Plus if you run the water on the walls of the sink the water won't make noise when it hits the bottom and is quiet. 

Ah well. It's just a game after all. But it's fun to think about. ^_^

The game is beautiful and there is a real feeling of tension, but this is not 20 second long...


I'm sure a speed runner could do it. I was able to get a ending in 26seconds. Close enough ^_^


Love the concept! Not sure if you have a bigger narrative behind it in mind, but if not, I definitely think that some elements of mystery (around the girl's past and Mr. Klein's house) and some character development for the girl would be great! Then, the player can piece together her past as she pieces together strange happenings and clues in the house that she's staying in, all leading to her making several crucial decisions as she grows in her character.

Also, not sure if you wanna make it an adult game, but if the story is gripping enough, you could probably reserve adult elements for a Patreon version, and the base game could be fully developed but non-H.


I successfully steal the sandwich and get a game over.
I am . . . less than fulfilled.



Naa, he's going to notice it's missing in the morning. She's in trouble. 

But is the game not over after that?


short yet wholesome game, i dont think the adult tag is needed though


In one of the endings it is.


Awww really love this new game u made!๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’“โค๏ธ๐Ÿฅฐ


Anne Frank


No man, come on...!๐Ÿ˜‘


My name is Fran. Fran Ank.

Also, isn't "Klein" a German last name?


maby but the word also means little


i agree she is just kidnapped


Adult content tag is inaccurate


I agree...


Me to


No lewds?

So how do i get these lewd ending?

When Sofia opens the fridge she looks so short is she 9 years old?


Is her name Sofia? I couldn't see the name anywhere.

It was at the beginning of the game when she's talking about how she ended up where she is. 

i HOPE she's atleast 18+

I still can't believe this is still happening today this made me sad and cry a little I just can't believe people do this to homeless people. Humans are such a shame when they do this stupid shit. I'm starting to lose hope in humanity in the future.


Bro it's a game???


I know


Some games are art that invoke strong emotions while highlighting societal issues. I don't think it's strange for at least some people to emotionally identify with the protagonist here.


ikr? I want this game to have a fully developed good ending where she finds a realistic solution and people willing to help her, just for some wholesomeness.


Man, what a game

(1 edit) (+1)

i would love a full game for this at some point for how short it is i loved it and im just a sucker for these types of games


Such a well - crafted games! I still can't imagine there is a lot of people living like this. It's horrible. I sympathize with the main protagonist, honestly.   


I'm glad you liked my game. Yeah, and reality is even worst than what's shown in this game!


Exactly. It's a scary world we live in, honestly.


This game made me anxious in the good way for the main protagonist. It's crazy how this is some people's reality though. 10/10


Wow awesome gameplay video! Thanks for playing my game :)


Thank you and you're welcome :)


This is short but very well packed! Awesome job!


its crazy that something like this happened in real life too. Great game btw!
