** It's easy to miss, but the 2016 version has this message appear at the same time someone's footsteps can be heard running past you and a door opening. Is it White Face? Who knows...


Added DiffLines:

** It's the same for HER, except her chase theme starts with a pounding sound. In the basement, this is first heard when the message "BEHIND YOU" appears.

** A small one, but HER asks the player if they "want this nightmare to end" - a reference to the game's "Pixelated Nightmare" title.

* AuthorPowers: [[spoiler: Upon digging around look to reset the game to play it from scratch, players can find a note from Ivan himself asking the player to not mess with the files, and to let White Face do it itself. He also thanks the player for playing. Doubles as Heartwarming, because at the end of the note, Ivan writes "You're great and so is your life! Don't commit suicide, okay? [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything I love you :)]].]]

** Averted [[spoiler: in the ending. The entire sky becomes clear blue instead of the dark fog that covers the rest of the game. Considering the context, it doesn't make the place anywhere near happier looking.]]

* LostForever: There is nothing particularly valuable or coveted to be searched for in this game. However, [[spoiler: once this game has been beaten, the game file will never open again, since it will always crash when it does so.]]
** Not necessarily true. [[spoiler: the game seems to track your progress by the text files it generates, so if you delete those files then the game resets and can be played again.]] But ''why would you want to!?''
** Played with in the Steam version. [[spoiler: White Face gives you the option to reset everything in the endgame, which results in lost progress. If you go for the door ending instead, you have to permanently erase White Face itself from the game, making ''it'' LostForever... unless you backed up your save beforehand and/or know how to edit the game's save values.]]



* NightmareFace: White Face, of course.
** HER. [[spoiler: Especially when she warns you to be quiet]].

Because this is a relatively unknown horror game, '''expect many spoilers ahead!''' Remember, players will have the best possible horror experience if they cannot anticipate any of the frightening events that await them!

* ImColdSoCold: This quote isn't said outright, but [[spoiler: White Face mentions how cold and dark its room is. In this pitch-dark and enclosed area there is a chair and noose in the background, and the skull-like White Face is slowly approaching the player who cannot move away. The player would certainly feel like they're about to die in this eerie situation!]]

* MindScrew / ParanoiaFuel: Is White Face hiding in some of those [[NothingIsScarier shadows]]? [[HellIsThatNoise Ugh, what is that horrible sound?!]] [[spoiler: Did this game give my computer some sort of virus, or is it actually possessed by a malevolent spirit?]]

* AntiFrustrationFeatures: If you've near the end of the Steam Version ([[spoiler:specifically, when you've placed the three valves and activated the device]]), a bunch of shortcuts to the various stages open up in the first stage's basement.

** At times, White Face quotes lines from the author's texts [[spoiler:and writes their own files because they were the NarratorAllAlong.]]



* PlayableEpilogue: [[spoiler:If you kill White Face, then you'll be able to walk around through the various areas again, which are now free from any spooky elements.]]



* SpookyPainting: There's a painting that will become bloodstained when the player isn't looking. The first couple of portraits of HER in the ''Workshop Edition''/Steam edition don't do anything, but later on you'll see a corridor of empty ones. After solving a puzzle, multiple HERS appear in them, reaching out for you.

* VideoGameCaringPotential: [[spoiler:Ultimately, all White Face wants is to be friends with you, so if you choose to start the story over at the end instead of getting rid of it, it smiles warmly and says it loves you.]]
