Will you ever make it for mac

Mac version will be available today. I don't have Mac OS so I can't check if the game works on Mac.

Thank you so much keep up the good work.

How'd you get it to work on your Mac? Mine says can't be opened.

I think the problem is that I made Mac OS build on Windows. Here is an solution from the internet: 

I needed to make the actual executable in the .app folder, well, “executable”. Please try:

Open up a Terminal and navigate to your app folder:

cd <PATH_TO_YOUR_APP>/<APP_NAME>.app/Contents/MacOS/

This folder contains the actual executable file which Windows apparently didn’t make executable. Let’s add the executable flag:

chmod +x <APP_NAME>

Afterwards I could start the app.


Unfortunately, I never had a Mac OS and never used it so I don't know what else could be causing it.

there's a bug for some reason where at 1am when the electricity is cut, you can't turn your flashlight on or open your inventory or click anything. you're stuck in the dark until a face appears and then you lose. opened the padlock and barricaded 2 windows before the lights cut off and that happened

I think that may just be because you lost? Like the alternate already got in and you can't do anything, which leads to suspense for the jumpscare. When playing the first thing you have to do is find a flashlight (usually hidden in cupboards or your closet) then board all windows. Then, your power will not cut off and you won't have this bug! :)

i had the flashlight and other items, when the electricity cut i couldn't access my inventory or click anything anymore which then led to my death so it's definitely a bug :)

Oh! Ok, didn't know that. Hope it gets fixed soon then! :)

Yo whaddup, I loved this game and I just wanted to give my thoughts on it.

The atmosphere was really good. I think it nails the vibe that the original Mandela Catalogue had and put it into game form accurately while also having its own charm. I enjoyed the audio cues and the mechanics and seeing as it was inspired by fnaf like you said I thought it was really unique and it worked for me

As many commenters have said it was the jumpscares that were very underwhelming. It is understandable to have them because you need a losing condition to have a game but I would like them to be more subtle. 

Along with that, I would like to actually see the alternates more. I liked the idea of the alternates hiding in the environment like the one in the bedroom, but I only saw it once in the entire game. It was very scary when I saw it but I wanted more of that to add to the sense of dread I had traversing throughout the house. Seeing them outside windows would also be a nice touch.


Sorry for the long comment, I just had a lot of thoughts. I'm very impressed by this game and excited to see more from you.

I don't like cheap jumpscare and wanted to avoid it, but in this case I had no choice (because of FNAF style gameplay). The more so that the game was created in a short time (2 months) and I wanted to make it before The Mandela Catalog Vol 2 appeared. You can check my Backrooms game prototype called "Here in the Backrooms" (it's available for free on Itch.io, you Can find it on my profile), which does not have any Jumpscares, but I can see it on YouTube gameplays that people are afraid of the monster there only because they hear its footsteps. The presence of the monster and the ubiquitous silence cause anxiety. I am currently working on a game based on my Backrooms prototype, which will have its own story, characters and opponents. There will be no jumpscares there (if jumpscares will appear, they will appear in unexpected moments) and, like in Mandela Invasion and my Backrooms prototype, the atmosphere will be the most important. In the future, I will also create a second part of Mandela Invasion, in which I want to focus on ensuring that Alternates do not kill the player. It will probably be based on The Mandela Catalog Vol 2 (as a member of the Bythorne Paranormal Society we will be checking if Alternate has appeared at the home of the reporting person). I will focus more on the atmosphere there and there will probably be something like "Sanity Level". It will be Point & Click again, but without the FNAF gameplay style.

I really want this game to be good because it reminds me of old horror flash games i used to play as a kid and it is, my only problem is the jumpscare, please make it scarier.

Enjoyed the game! It reminds me of those flash games from back then like Addicting Games. Wish there was more to it!

Jumpscare really sucks, like, its what a 5 year old would find scary. The rest of the game is great though. I dont mean to be harsh about the jumpscare but I think if instead you had the face be one of an alternate, it would be more scary. rn its just kinda a goofy jumpscare that kinda takes the "Scare" out of the game. The sounds, atmosphere, and the style of gameplay is really nice however. Keep it up!

well i didnt have to much time to play this game, but its the first one and was really fun, gave me a good scare too

Great game overall, but please add the option to remove the jump scare. You really have gotten all the atmospheres right until that jump scare ruins the whole vibe. Or at the very least put a lot more effort into the scare.

I'll check out your older game then. Looking forward to your next game as well.

It was a really good game but everything went right until i beat it and then the whole thing broke after the jumpscare and i couldnt do anything the screen was completly blank except the filter that was on and the only thing i could do is exit to menu and restart to get the ending

(+1)

(+1)

im excited but also kinda scared to play this game

Really good game, I couldn't actually finish it in the end, but still a good time nice work

This game is totally my favorite on itch. Even though it's inspired by FNAF and Mandela Catalogue, it still feels like its own stand alone game. Not to mention, I love the Mandela Catalogue so this is perfect! I saw your comment on a YouTube video saying you're going to add some mechanics/items to make the game harder and more complicated, which I love. The graphics are awesome, the gameplay is really fun and keeps you on your toes, and I'm eager to see how this game evolves! Keep up the great work :) 

(+1)

This was cool! I got really into the discovery and how to survive the night. I just wish there was a LITTLE more to actually beating the game. Its very simple once you figure it out

Amazing game none the less, keep up the good work!

I love the mix between FNAF and Mandela Catalog! This was a really eerie experience and fit the analog horror genre FOR SURE! Keep up the great work my man!

Played this game for an hour (only because I became very confused on how to beat the game). But even through the frustration, I've enjoyed the game. Thank you.

Played this game on my Channel's Series called 3 SCARY GAMES! It's the 2nd game I play in the video and starts at 12:47, The Mandela Catalogue is a super intriguing idea, and playing a game to be immersed into that world is amazing!  

Being a FNAF style game is also a really cool idea that could be amazing if perfected. The actual atmosphere, visuals, and setting are well made! It's the actual Gameplay I feel fell a bit short atm. After experiencing a few of the deaths in the game, you learn what you need to do right away at the beginning of the night like Boarding up windows, getting materials for Electrical, etc. But after that, there is not much else.. It turns into just a bunch of waiting around if anything is ever going to happen. I feel like adding the mechanic of having to repair the windows alone would make it way more satisfying experience.

Overall tho I think this game could have amazing potential and grow as the Mandela Catalouge story grows and evolves with it!

am i the only one having this problem ?

Hi! I fixed it. Now you Can download Mandela Invasion from Itch.io App.

thank you so much

Great concept and mechanics.Once you find out what you’re doing,it does get a little boring but overall worth the play!

Awesome game!

This just came out with the Vol 2 of the Mandela Catalog. Love every thing about the universe and Alex Kisters channel hoping for more game centralizing on the idea of this type of horror

Muy interesante la mecánica tipo FNAF, sin duda alguna es una muy fiel adaptación a el catalogo Mandela, quizás tuve problemas pero porque no me suelo familiarizar con este tipo de gameplay, pero sin duda alguna me ha gustado mucho.

 Hey! I played your game on my stream! Watch it to see the live review!  Here's the link for it: https://www.twitch.tv/spacematterplay 😄
Game Number: 4
Review Ends at: 2:02:40

  I would also appreciate if you could give an opinion on our latest game. Game devs advice is precious because we know better what it takes to make something work. It's called "Backdoor Shifts".

Yeah, I saw your stream. You know, it's funny, because this is my first game on Itch.io and i DIDN'T DO ANY MARKETING ;) Yeah, the only thing I do was publishing post on my Facebook page, on Twitter, releasing trailer on Youtube, I also post an info about the game on two or three subreddits. That's it. I wanted to see how people will react to it and how Itch.io works, because I want to publish here more games (not only free). The people in the comments were amazing, I saw almost every Mandela Invasion Let's Play on Youtube and I was impressed how quickly this game got its five minutes. I will check out "Backdoor Shifts" and give you my opinion :) Thanks!

Congratulations! It is really well made and enjoyable! Keep at the good work!

thanks for the game!

Loved this game hope to see more!

BRAVO 


keep up the great work, you definitely have to keep working on this and maybe have some sort of sequel or even a full fledged game someday. This was a blast to play and can't wait to see what you do in the future. 


MUCH LOVE 

PF

Thanks!

The game was a lot more fun with the 1.4 update, adding the other events to manage stopped the game from running out of content. It was especially nice to see that the audio cues had different reaction times (e.g. The vent needs to be closed a few seconds after hearing the noise). I am curious where else you will take the game, like with the TV that won’t turn off, or having to listen for wooden boards being smashed so you need to keep on top of them.

Will watch out for any further progress.

Thanks! Maybe if I will have some time, I will add something more to the game. TV is there because of a new ending, but I don't want spoilers ;) Right now I started to working on another analog horror game, but now it will be FPP. Hope you will check it out too!

Just went back and found the TV ending, good job; thought I had broke the game when nothing was interactable; wish I'd thought of trying that before uploadin
