On a camping trip into the forest your friend has vanished in the night.  As you step away from your camp to investigate you realise you are lost as well....


Inspired by The Blair Witch Project.
Explore an endless forest and try to discover its secrets.


We have updated the game to be closer to what we originally wanted from the jam but couldn't possibly finish in 48 hours.  Many thing have changed including a proper ending, if you have played the game before, please try it again for many new spooks.


Usual movement controls.
Hold shift or click the left stick down to run.
Left click, E or A on the pad for interactions.
RMB or Left trigger to zoom focus.
ALT+F4 to run away.

Follow the cries for help...


"Wah, what the f**k?!  What was that?!"  - Ealia

"Wooaha, f**king hell!" - CJUGames

"Ah, it's freaking me out. It's freaking me out. It's freaking me out." - Cjmaxibon

"What?  Oh my god no.  Please no." - NathOnGames

"Holy shi- what? Oh god!  What the f**k is this?" - SuaVieJaVii Games

"Eeeooo, f**k meeeeee." - jacksepticeye

Please bear in mind we have only really been working on this game for 2 weekends and some evenings so it should still be considered an early prototype.

We may revisit this in the future...

Gameplay if you're interested:

This was incredible! I loved how the audio was used, really directional so you felt like things were creeping about near you and as a way to guide the player to the final location. Really creative. I played it through again to see all the other locations and it was still scary, even when I knew exactly what was going to happen. I loved the clear influence and the Lovecraftian twist at the end, very The Void

oh snap this is creepy AF. I like it cant wait to play it 

Made a video


I liked it; great atmosphere!

Was super similar to the Blair Witch project style! Blair Witch is one of my favorite horror games ever and this deserves a place in that category!

No Commentary :) 


This is kinda giving me Hello Neighbor vibes because I'm stumbling into a house that lies with mysteries. The house kinda looks like the Hello Neighbor 1 Alpha 3 or 4 houses.

Also, remember to upvote this comment.


This reminds me of when DanTDM was playing Granny on PC and there was a cutscene where the character stumbled across some woods and found Granny's house. Granny slapped the character hard with a baseball bat and the game began.

Upvote this comment if you agree.

Really creepy game. Definitely Enjoyed.

A great game which I believe to be based on the story of The Blair Witch! Do you dare enter the House in the Woods?

This game is amazing. Not only is this Blair Witch inspired, but the house part is way better than the house part in the actual Blair Witch game.

Love this game, the graphics and gameplay. Very enjoyable and very fun to play.

An absolute masterpiece of a title! You clearly understand game mechanics and how to implement them as well as creating atmosphere and horror! If I could give this game more than 5 stars I would!

Your friend


Loved this game, was very creepy all the way through and gave me goose pumps - 

Actually a cool experience :D Love the sound design.


love to see a full game on this very blairesque   if thats a word if not ive invented lol

I faced my fears and finished this terrifying game!! It was so much fun!

Some Blair Witch vibes here. You could make a full length game, I would buy it for sure.

The game was really good. I think this had a Blair Witch vibe (which is really great). Would love to see more games like this from you.

This game was such a pleasure to play. It throws you in a very plausible real life scenario of "I'm lost in the woods" and amplifies that by excellent sound design.

Honestly amazing stuff here! You folks really killed it on this one. Graphically it looks astounding, it was a treat to the ears, and I'm so intrigued by the cult that I want MORE. GIVE ME MORE.

This game is really great! The atmosphere, setting and sounds are super creepy and those happenings in the forest super creeped me out. But the house was even worse. I was really scared the whole time I was playing this game. Well done! :D

I really loved the atmosphere of this game! Very creepy and definitely gets your imagination wandering, in all the best ways. I would love to see a sequel to this or a longer rendition of it! Everything about it was just perfect and very culty.

We had a ton of fun with this, despite getting lost in the beginning!

Thanks for the experience!

To be Honest I had a lot of fun with this game even tho it is very short and I know it is supposed to be. Honestly you guys did an amazing job and I'm so glad you guys had all the elements from the actual Blair witch games and movies one day I would love to see a full remake of a Blair witch horror game with this style cant wait to see what else you guys make check out my video to see my full playthrough love ya!

You did an excellent job here! Might be the creepiest "lost in the woods"-type gameplay i've come across. Keep it up my dude!

i think,

this game for be an indie, is awesome.
