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.

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...

This game really had me on the edge of my seat lol the atmosphere and the sound effects in the woods were nuts and so were the few little jump scares. Good job!!

Did a great job with setting atmosphere, I loved how vulnerable it feels being in the woods with the darkness and sound effects

The section in the house genuinely had me kinda scared, awesome short game!

The game was pretty good for how much time was spent into it and I would encourage you to try to make into a full game.

Some bad and funny gameplay down here:


hold up this only the prototype ??? the real game gonna have me shitting my pants

insane best quality game ive played on this site

A trip back to the blair witch project, love it!


Scary horror game!

Can see the simluarity in this one and hopefully you make more this was so uncomfortable but yet awesome! Keep up the good work guys. 

lots of fun

VERY well made game, I'm a fan for sure!

That was a wonderful throwback into the 90s Blair Witch Project

Great game, super creepy especially towards the end. 

This game so creepy! I loved every second of this! Please make more!!

Its Blair Witch lol

Great game! Gave us quite the scare

Genuinely scary

We Need more! great game

Love the immersion and the sound. Great short horror game!

Such a fantastic short horror game. Some of the best sound and atmosphere I've seen in a while. Would love to see this as a full game but regardless great job!


Really scary 10/10 really enyoyed this game, recommend all day :)

One of the best horror games i have seen so far

I am late to the game but this is so beautiful, everything fits, the sound effects are top notch, really triple A level, the environment is immediately uncomfortable and disorienting and even though it’s such a short experience, it feels like I just went through hell and back :D Gorgeous. The way how every single detail adds to the unease, the terror is outright luscious.  

FYI: Happy New Year!

You did an amazing job, I did not read the description and I did felt I was in Blair witch

Great stuff,. this game has some truly terrifying moments!

Happy new year everybody!

frames dropping and why no menu for adjustments 

My playtrough of your game

a love letter to haunted ps1 style games i cant say how well thought out and done this game is so heres my take on it!

For an indie game, this is on a whole new level. I'd LOVE to play a full length game from you guys!

great short creepy game
