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...

I really like this game it a a amazing  experience. But I'm Never Going Camping.

which unreal engine 4 does this game use?

This was a real scary experience! Every little sound made this so much scarier! There were parts where it got really dark, but I would say that's a plus because it added a loss of direction! I recommend this game to anyone who hasn't given it a try yet!

Amazingly done, I was in suspense the whole time! The subtle touch of the participants of the ritual surrounding you outside was great!

loved itttt!!!!!!!!

This game is actually a lot better than I anticipated. I went into it expecting a very cheap jumpscare fest. But I was pleasantly surprised that it was actually building upon something that felt unique, especially towards the end.

The atmosphere is chilling, the camera handles well and the sounds are perfect, is a good game I loved it! Recommended to all who like terror and urban exploration.

I loved the atmosphere they created, got pretty intense. It reminded me a lot of the Blaire witch project which was very spooky.

I kind of almost gave up on this game, because I was running for what felt like far too long w no objective, but Im glad I didnt. the ending was awesome and v surprising.

Don't let the graphics from this game put you off it is absolutely terrifying, and a brilliant game it scared the crap out of me 

this game scared the shit out of me. Love Blair Witch and this was a great experience keep up the good work!!

Loving everything about this game. Sound, environment, and the monster at the end. Hits all the "horror" buttons.

genuinely enjoyed the whole experience

Awesome creepy game!! Art and style just fits perfectly with that blair witch reference!!

Keep up with your hard work!

Very nice work! Sound design and atmosphere are top-notch and it's insane this was made in such a short jam period. Also very cool to see more Scottish devs.

this game kind of scared the shit out of me lol, I had been sweating every second waiting for screamer!!!
but, in my opinion, you could've made the ending more unsettling or unpredictable because it was boring. no offence, overall the game was nuts

Failed to launch, win11

Hard to say why that would be the case.  First thing to try is install the prerequisites in the game folder.

PS1BW-Win64-Shipping works, but in the root folder the PS1BW exe does not... huh

excelente juego !!! se siente el terror cada segundoo : ) te dejo mi gameplay aquii 

This was amazing. Loved every minute of it!

atmosphere, animations, everything. the game is a masterpiece 

The atmosphere in this game is AMAZING, the basement gave me chills

Amazing game inspired by Blair Witch, I LOVED it, the sound design was fantastic and it was very tense

I would love to have options to remove headbobs and other settings

Cant wait to see what more you make in the future, keep up the amazing work

Very lovely game! Gamepad controls are either a little wonky or I am too fidgety to sprint. But otherwise this game is stunning. Despite having PS1 graphics this game is far too detailed to have ever been played on the PS1. But I would totally play a full game in this style.

Great Game Playing Off On The Horrors Of the Woods At Night And The Abandon House To Explore Great Game Enjoyed Playing 


The forest is scary at night.

Definitely see where the Blair Witch influenced this and gives me the vibes when I was younger, watching the movie and had those creeps/chills. Enjoyed the playthrough and still wanted to join their cult.

Great experience! better than the official game. The spirit of blair witch is in this game and the end, perfect! If this game had some "Lore" will be exceptional!

Grande esperienza! meglio del gioco ufficiale. Lo spirito della strega Blair è in questo gioco e il finale è perfetto! Se questo gioco avesse un po' di "Lore" sarebbe fantastico!

Great game.

One of the best indie games I've ever played.

Esse jogo é sinistro... tomei cada susto nele, muito bom!!!

I knew it was about triangles! 

I think the game had a few horror characteristics (especially the sounds), but I did not get scared at all. Maybe because I haven't played it alone in a room (that's probably the reason), but I think the game would benefit from more story telling. In comparison to "The Blair Witch" or with this in mind the game is definitely better than the movie.

--- spoilers ahead ---

I have to admit that the scene in which the sounds make it feel like somebody or something is running up the stairs creeped me out a little. 

This was really good! Pretty scurry too


De lejos la experiencia de terror mas intensa que he tenido en mucho tiempo, la sensación de estar indefenso, combinado con la música y esos detalles tan pequeños como el cambio en el sonido del viento, crean una atmósfera de terror y suspenso perfecta, definitivamente un juego de terror que todos deberian de jugar para no querer salir de sus casas nunca más

Loved playing it, it was so scary would like to see a longer game version

Cult Basterds I swear, not gonna lie, I wanted to Quit few times just a few


so spooky got me on my tippy toes and shii

I needed a safe word with this game! My poor heart, so good! Please keep up the good work!

this game was so freaking scary! im sorry but this was almost way to much to me! i really hope this game gets more attention. on of the best horror games in its style this year. thank you for making this game. its a pro edited 5 minute reaction compilation so show it some love! LOVE YALL!!
