The Vermander Curse
A downloadable game for Windows
J.P. Vermander has a problem.
In his eyes, he's been swindled.
With the offending party being none other than the local hospital.
And by using the power of a ritualistic curse, he will have his revenge.

I love this game, please keep making more <3
(sorry english is not my native language)
I've been a big fan of your games since I first saw The Man From the Window, and I love your characters so much, they're full of personality and I especially love the body shapes <3 I don't know quite how to get in contact with you, I wanted to ask if I was able to use your models as a base for a project? With your permission, I'd be altering them a bit, and I won't be selling them off, I would be making a specific model for a friend of mine? If this is something you wouldn't be comfortable with, or compensated for, I completely understand and I'd be glad to talk about it more in the latter case. In any point, thank you for reading this comment, and I hope to see more from you (Antiquities was super interesting <3 )
First of all, thank you very much!
It's always nice to hear it when someone enjoys my work.
In regards to your question, I'll say this:
I don't believe in publicly releasing game assets, as it's just not something I do.
However, if you were to rip said assets yourself, or go and find them, then that's entirely up to you.
I make the games, and anything after that I have nothing to do with,
There quite fun
I absolutely love all of your games... I haven't been able to play them myself, because I use a Mac since I develop software and need a Unix environment (and I just don't like Windows, especially since 8) but I've watched ManlyBadassHero play through them all on YouTube and they are easily amongst my favourite horror games... the unique but consistent art style and your ideas are great!
Thank you very much, vorpal22!
Apologies for the fact the games aren't accessible to you, as my limited knowledge prevents me from developing for any platform besides Windows.
Still, I'm very glad you've been able to enjoy watching them!
Also, apologies for the extremely delayed response.
Just watching this on youtube made me sit on the edge on my seat... This was one of the best if not the best horror games i've ever tried out And playing it myself Was an awesome experience I Can't wait to post this on YT and trying out other stuff Carry On Zed Please keep making more stuff like this
This game seems super fun, but I don't have the courage to play it cause I always have anxiety that the hour is gonna be up, but that's what makes the game fun! today I'm gonna try finally playing it, and another thing is that ever since I played these games I felt less scared of horror games, so you have my thanks lol
at first I wasn’t sure what I was supposed to do lol This game is super fun and gives me a sort of FNAF vibe. I would definitely have to play it again to save everyone. Also the first phone didn’t really seem to ring and I didn’t notice it. Other than that the game was amazing.
It's great to hear you liked this one!
Thanks for playing.
Also, my apologies about the audio issue with the phone.
i have a problem from of the vermander cruse
Hello, I played your game due to a recommandation from a friend.
I saw that I already had played prior to this your other game. The man from the window and I can say that I enjoyed this game as well. Like last time I made another video about it. This clearly was slower paced but I still had fun.
Thanks for playing!
Glad to hear you still had fun, despite the slower pace.
I cannot wait for the next game! reading some of the comments below I read you plan on it coming out by the end of this month, so here's hoping it will! ever since I saw The Man from the window and this game, I was hooked and am enjoying this game a lot
the man from the WINDOW beware the shadowcatcher the zero to never know the vermander curse whats next these games are so god damn good
Bro you're legit soo underrated you make the best indie horror games that are creative. Big up to ya
Thank you, you're far too kind! :)
I'll do my best to continue to improve and keep creating these projects.
When do you think ur next game will game come out?
I'm currently aiming for the end of this month!
So far everything's on track still, but we'll see. :)
Wow! I really enjoyed this! Great characters, a unique style, and an awesome and unique gameplay loop (the gameplay is similar to The Man From The Window, but the enemy phase is really quick so it doesn't feel tedious). It's horror-themed, but it's super mild. Pretty much the only thing remotely scary in this game is the poor lighting (and one of your patients is a wolf which might look scary at first but he's totally chill). The game is also not very difficult- it's timed, but as long as you keep the doors open to everything except the lobby and the 3 rooms that are occupied by patients, you can finish each night in half the allotted time. Also, I absolutely loved that happy ending. What a great way to wrap up the story. Well done! Can't wait to see what's next :)
This was my first time playing one of your games and honestly it was really interesting! This little world you're creating is really fun and I will definitely be playing your other titles. I was skeptical at first but really shattered that. Thanks for making games man. As for anyone else check out my playthrough here -
Love this guy's games! Keep them coming!
Just like with the last game "Beware the Shadowcatcher" I shall spend multiple hours experimenting and testing as much as I can
Btw I love the style of the characters, at first I was like "wow that's new" but now I've learned to absolutely love the design
And I can't wait for more games
Btw Zed with every game you make I can assure you I shall spend many hours experimenting and testing whatever I can
I kinda feel like a video game tester that doesn't get paid but if I'm being honest your games are like the only games I get really excited for, and I wouldn't want to get paid by you instead I'd pay you lmao
Anyway im not sure if you have one or not but I have not donated to your patron or anything which if I'm being honest feels like a sin so hopefully in the near future I can support you and your future projects
You are easily 1 of my top 10 favorite game developers I can't wait for more games
Alright I've been saying too much I have to get experimenting and ive been experimenting on "The bit more know zero" and I have found many interesting things I'll comment about on that game page so I'll update you guys on what I find if anything
Your enthusiasm is unmatched! Just remember not to push yourself too hard, all right?
Whether in regards to this game, or anything else!
Either way, thanks for the compliment on being in your top 10.
Also, I don't have a Patreon.
And while donations are always appreciated, they are not necessary.
If someone can afford to donate, it's extremely appreciated.
If not, that's fine too. These games are free for a reason!
I gotta be honest, I loved this game. Short, sweet, to the point and has some solid tension at the beginning, because you don't know how much time you have to do everything. Once you get to the third set of things you have to do, it does feel like you have lots of time so the tension feels a little less. Idk why the killer shows up randomly either, he just kinda chills and watches me. No clue if he can kill me while I'm busy doing other things or not. I never did die to him stalking me down the halls and it did catch me off guard. The character models are pretty funny to me, and I'm not putting that as a negative, but I did laugh as I kept seeing new models show up. Overall, I really enjoy this game. I would've played it more for the good ending, but I just didn't have enough time to play it again. Good game, simple concept and story, lots of fun and it has some potential to be replayed, because you're probably gonna make some mistakes and screw up your first run. Almost guaranteed
It's great to hear that you liked the game!
Thank you so much, and thanks as well for playing.
Hi Zed! How is your current project going! No rush, I hope its going well!
Thanks for asking!
I had to take a bit of an unannounced break, but I'm back now!
And I'm definitely ready to get started again.
My current project is approximately halfway completed, and I aim to have it finished before the month's end.
Cool game here's a speedrun
game idea for zed tenichain watch out for the phycopath
i just wish there was an linux icon
Amo el trabajo de esta persona y el juego al igual que los demás que ha creado me hizo sentir miedo, en especial este por el hecho de que a partir de la última instrucción se puede ver al demonio merodeando el hospital, el simplemente verlo me hizo sentir un inmenso terror al no saber dónde aparecerá luego.
I did not think I was going to enjoy it as much as I did but this really was a blast to play!! Thank you!!
I got the Morton ending and the Good 3-star ending because I couldn't;t accept the fact that Morton's daughter would grow up without her rat dad!
Keep up the good work and stay safe!! 👍
(Subscribe and Like) - This is optional, Thank you😁
Oii jogo incrivel !! estarei levando ao meu canal um conteudo diferente com este jogo!
Thank you for always developing very entertaining games. Keep it up.
I'm a very big fan of your work...keep going and thank you so much!!!
hi um i was wondering how to play the game also is it free?
Hey Zed are you willing to take requests for OC characters?
That Really Good Idea
The idea has been brought up before!
For right now, the answer is no.
In the future, however, that may change.
I'll be sure to let you know if I ever decide to.
this game is weirdly addicting! i watched that dude (jay from the kubz scouts) play it and i couldn't stop rewatching, it was just so interesting how it gets harder each time, having to deal with patients and cant to anything but listen to the person on the phone, definitely one of my favorite games ever!
When is next gameeeeeee
Unfortunately I've had some issues with my current project.
Which means that things are going to be very much delayed, but I'm doing my best to get back on track.
I had fun attempting to voice act for all the characters, and it gave some entertaining results. You really seem to take the time to give your characters a personality, that effort really shows!
I will say that your games would probably have even more personality if you include voice acting or at the very least some music! Music can really help develop the atmosphere and set the tone for your world that you are creating.
I am looking forward to the next game! Good luck with your next project Zed!
Thank you very much for your comment, and thanks as well for the feedback! :)
Glad to hear you liked the game, and I'll keep your advice in mind.
I'll also be sure to do my best on my future projects.
My man Zed, I'm a fan of horror games for about 17 years of my life and your style of horror has become my favorite one. It should definitely become a sub genre like Puppet Combo games did.
The fact that these are just characters with nothing exceptional about them besides their appearances trying to live their regular lives but supernatural shit gets in the way is exactly what I've been looking for years.
Your games don't try to be over the top like about 90% of the horror games out there. Your premise is simple, presented in a simple manner, with simple characters and just deep enough personalities so they don't feel like complete NPCs is a recipe that works better than most may think. It keeps me engaged exactly because of that!
I'll always follow and play all of your games but can you please tell me which ones have you inspired upon on making these? Or at least tell me other games that follow similar narrative as yours? I'm a huge horror game buff and I crave for more in the same vein as your games.
Thank you from the bottom of my millennial heart and cheers from Brazil! 🇧🇷
Thank you for your comment! You're very kind, and I appreciate it. :)
My projects aren't based off of anyone else's, and I try to stay away from viewing the content other people make.
So I cannot give you any recommendations, sorry!
I thank you again for your very nice words.
hi i was wondering how many stars you can get for beating the game over and over again
Hello, I have played your game (and won it) and I hope you continue to make games of this type, because I play every one of them (rip my space)
well that's all, have a nice day/afternoon/night ^◡^
First of all, thank you very much for playing!
I definitely have more projects that I plan to work on, so hopefully you'll stick around for those. :)
You have a good day/night as well.
I really enjoy the game , so far your games are really fun. I love how you really have to think and observe your options to beat the game. This one was stressful but was really fun.
Game begins 16:46
Played the game (and beat it), but I have a question; why is there little to no music in your games? Don't get me wrong; the ambience is great, but a bit of music wouldn't hurt.
Also plan on making models for this game too. Already have finished up Morton, and am working on Eda right now.
