I really enjoyed the atmosphere and how the game developed! (but knowing there is a second ending I haven't found is driving me nuts!! Developer hint maybe? ;)
whatshername tells the story of a young woman trying to finish her homework. This side-scolling psychological horror narrative contains dark and depressive visuals, audio, and story, some strong language, and is intended for a mature audience. The game lasts roughly 20-30 minutes and contains a minimalist interface, as well as two separate endings.
Contains extremely depressing content that may not be appropriate for some people.
Movement: left and right

Thanks for playing and for your kind words :)
Ending hints: You have to retrieve something from the well & listen to your ringtone (headphones help).
Had fun, though I think it'd perhaps be better in games like these that have numerous endings, is that an End-game option allows you to achieve the next ending with relative ease, such as reverting to a point in time before the crossroad that activates the other ending sort of aspect - an Optional bonus, not really mandatory, but it'd help share the story and make it more viable so people get everything.
I made a video on this game and it was a pretty good game. I don't think that I got the good ending, but it was fun regardless. I hope you enjoy the video!
