This very short experience was made by one person in a few days for Haunted Hunting Jam 2020 for fun. You can find bugs and glitches while playing.

The music was created by Python Blue:



The year is 1347.

In the midst of a turbulent and chaotic time when the Black Death is wiping out almost the entire population of Eurasia, several villages in central Scandinavia have been attacked and massacred in an inhuman way. The governor of the area has no choice but to call Clarence, a hunter/investigator with unorthodox methods for the time and a strong belief in the supernatural, to find out what is happening on his land.

When Clarence arrives at one of the villages, the inhabitants have left, abandoning their houses and part of their belongings. While exploring the village a creature attacks him and takes him to his food pit to eat later. Clarence must escape before the creature returns and kills him.

I accidentally stumbled onto this game, whilst the environment was great, I am stumped for words in terms of what was experienced. Was something supposed to happen or did I miss it completely?

Thanks for the video! The experience is very short and more focused on the atmosphere than anything else, so you didn't miss anything ๐Ÿ˜‰


Awesome, I was hoping I didn't, Thanks!

I'm looking forward to the complete game! (I'm just gonna assume there will be a complete game, cause otherwise my dissapointment will be indescribable. Don't waste this game's potentiale, please! :D)


Thank you very much for playing and for the video! Sorry to disappoint you, but there will be no full game, this was only an experiment for Haunted Hunting Jam, but I appreciate your kind words.


This was a great game to play through. I checked out all the games from the Haunted hunting Jam and i definitely think this was the best one. Well Done!


Thank you so much for your kind words and for the video! ๐Ÿค—


I love how beautiful everything looks ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ’š๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ. The trees and the moon ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ’™.  As soon as I heard the monster sounds, I was thinking am I GONNA DIE?! Loved sliding and crouching around lol!!!!! The lore and story sounds so cool, if it ever becomes a full game, I'd love to see what happens further in the story!!! :D THANK YOU FOR MAKING THIS!! ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ
