Lost in the Woods: A Blair Witch-Inspired Horror Game
Took a while to find the house but once I did... holy crap that was intense.

THE SPOOKY VIBE IS UNREAL WITH THIS ONE, LOVED IT.
Deadly Getaway: Unravel the Mystery in This Horror Game 🏡💔😱
This game has incredible visuals, I got lost in the forest, but I ended up finding the house.Amazing game
This game was INSANE in the best way that a horror game could be!! I really felt like I was walking in a dark forest alone & the screams sounded SO REAL. I also loved how creepy yet cool the cultist looked.
10/10 highly recommend this game!
Really cool game. Not sure if there are different endings yet depending on which obelisks are found. I only came across one, but there were a few in the visions, so I wonder if finding more/different ones would change anything.
One criticism I do have is that the spooky audio cues seemed to be randomly but semi-regularly occuring, which IMO kind of removed some of the tension from them. I could tell that nothing was following me in the woods after a couple minutes, so the tension dropped a lot until finding the house. Even in there, since there was no danger, since it was clear we were being taken through the whole house, again the tension dropped.
Still a fantastic atmosphere and great music. Plucking violins are a classic, but still work well. The VFX and aesthetic are also perfect for the setting and vibe. There are a lot of woods horror games that don't seem to have an effective atmosphere for whatever reason, but this one definitely worked. Would have liked more mechanics, ways to die, lore to find, ways to investigate, tracking mechanics, etc. But It appears some of those may be added in the coming update.
Super fkn spooky. Great game <3 (first game in the video)
This was absolutely horrific (in the best way possible!), I was losing my mind from dread, and the atmosphere was just so terrifying. Thank you for making this, it was a fantastic experience! I donated but I would have given more if I could, I'm sorry.
Here is my gameplay of it, wishing you well <3
The perfect game to play on Friday the 13th and for my '31 Days of Horror Games' Challenge for Halloween. The atmosphere, the art style, and the game is a masterpiece. 10/10 game, and I cannot wait for the update this end of the year. Cheers!
