"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

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 was playing this game while telling my son what was happening in fear this game was truly amazing the effort put in was perfect.

awesome fricking job man, it really gave me the vibes of being lost in the forest and not know what to do. 

Probably the most enjoyable experience I've ever had camping. Cool game, 6.8/10.

Can see the inspiration from Blair Witch in this game which is great! 

Good job, scary me a lot , i like games in this type, thank you for this wow experience :)

i will put my gameplay here when you have time check it out

i hated this but only because it's so good lol. absolutely terrifying. thank you for this amazing game!

馃槀 thanks for playing!

This is a true horror game

Amazing game. In fact, the inspiration in the Blair Witch movie is very strong here, even the heavy feeling that the film gives is reproduced very well here. Congratulations.

Played it as the second game in my video, I never screamed so loud until I played this for some reason. Amazing game

Y'all made me scream like never before lol. I hope you revisit this and add on to it because the tension throughout is amazing! The music and the plucking of the strings, added with the sounds of wind was *chef's kiss*! Really had fun playing this!

This damn house....I LOVE IT!!!

The woods freaked me out and I thought if I could get to the house I'd probably be fine. 

I've never been so wrong in my life. 



really cool

Very Unnerving Experience throughout

Good job!

Odli膷na kratka igrica, veoma zanimljiva i stra拧na, koncepcija teme i zvu膷nih efekata su odli膷ni, svidilo mi se i sretno u gradnji ostalih igrica!

Had a great time with this quick game! It's short but it has a great atmosphere and look. Would definitely love to see this revisited!

Very nice

I loooooved the Blair Witch vibes! I loved how there's some kind of a story and it's really spooky. I did this game on stream and everybody liked it. It's the 5th game, starts @ 1:40:29

Quite an immersive game. Throws you into the Darkness and they watch you as you struggle

to find some way out. I think this game can be built upon though, but the lore is perfect.

A really great game.

Such a good game with an amazing creepy atmosphere and awesome scares!! Just all around amazing!!

A really terrifying Game! Never played a game like this! Love it! If you are interested to know about our thoughts, you can watch now our Review on YouTube!

Greetings - Daddelkutter 

Thanks for the review guys! Much appreciated! We might return to House In The Woods at some point and expand upon it 馃憤

Fantastic game, really draws you in!! the atmosphere and the vibe is just my cup o tea lol!! check out the reaction video below! 

This game was incredible! Really atmospheric, immersive and terrifying! I would love to see more! Keep up the good work!

I know i'm super late to this game, but i'm impressed! the atmosphere kept me on my toes the entire time. nice work


It's so climatic game!

I would love to see like bigger version of it.

Great game, really well done! Loved the VHS style overlay, loved the ambient noises, my only disappointment is that it wasn't longer. 


Full Game

The atmosphere is chilling, the camera handles well and the sounds are perfect,maybe if they had added 2 or more objectives to do it would have been perfect, but it is a good game I loved it! Recommended to all who like terror and urban exploration,remember to watch this gameplay at night, with headphones and light off, do you dare?

Great little scary game. Got me, job done :D Keep up the good work!

Freak you!!! 


Hey!! let me just start off by saying you owe me a new pair of pants. Because of this stupid game, I crapped in the ones I am wearing and it is your fault because you made it. I know you could argue that you didn't force me to play it therefore it is not your fault. But at that point, we are really just splitting hairs and we both know that you made this game way more scary than it should be and therefore it is your fault that I now have crap in my pants. So, therefore, you owe me a new pair. So are we going to take care of this civilly or should my lawyer contact your lawyer and I figure out how to sue you from America? Because you owe me new pants.

Unfortunately we cannot reimburse you with a fresh pair of pants at this time.  We have contacted our lawyer and have been advised that liability in this case would be hard to assign.

We will, however, buy you a beer if you're ever in Scotland.  As long as you don't try sue us.

Cheers :D

We will see who is liable? Can we do dinner instead of beer I am a sober drunk and me and booze are no longer friends and I want to keep that way. but I would love to sit and have a wholesome glass of milk...lol. I think I may even be a bit naughty and get mine on the rocks.  But all kidding aside I think that was amazing game and hope to play more from you markiplier has played several of your creations has he not?


Really Good Video

I loved this its the second time i played it and its still just as scary as the first time i played it! The ambiance is amazing the setting and scares are too! It definately reminds me of the blair witch project. Heres my playthrough if you wanna see! It startsat 10:18! 

This game scared tf outta me on multiple occasions LMAOOO, it was really funny tho

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

there have been several Blair Witch games which is the one you are referring to? I am assuming you mean the most recent one right?

This game is incredible: a unique horror experience. I recommend it to all horror fans.

Absolutely awesome work guys! I enjoyed this game so much! As soon as I finished it I started it up again!
