A web horror experience where you communicate with spirits using a Ouija board.

Despite existing only as a web page, the spirits have the ability to move the player's mouse towards letters on the board. Two different chatbots available: a scripted experience with 2 achievements to unlock, and for players who have OpenAI API keys, there is a more versatile GPT-3 mode.

Play it here for free: https://ouija.attejuvonen.fi

Hi. :)

Interesting idea, although I got bored rather quickly (especially because the tip said "find out what it is", and I basically got the answer when I asked "who are you"? :P not sure what I should chat about with an AI pretending to be a spirit :P). But I can easily imagine it as a minigame (as part of a bigger whole).
The visuals are real nice. :)
One note though, the mouse seemed pretty laggy and it took me a long time to find out how to get the letter. Moving the mouse slower helped a bit with both.

Good luck on your next project. :)

The demon was from the same town where I live... Scary. I think it's too late for this kind of game.

Mouse snapping to letters works surprisingly well, and slow tempo makes the game suspenseful. With enhanced and more dynamic discussion this could be a very entertaining piece of art. For instance, the spirit could start to threaten the player, and there should be a real threat of jumpscare if it gets angry.
