Brilliant atmospheric and creepy game. Just a shame it's so short! I really hope it gets expanded upon!

Hi, I think you did a really good job of creating a claustrophobic atmosphere in this game with just enough creep to make me feel uncomfortable. Would love to see more.

Thanks!

I did 3 horror games video, this one was first one! It was pretty good made in 10 days! It had creepy moment, but I didn't found any story. Over all, no bugs or anything what I could complain, it was fun to play!

Thanks for playing and for the video!

Really creepy for as short as it is. Very effective in the atmosphere department for sure.

Thank you!

The atmosphere and graphics are very nice for this game.  It sets up a lot of perfect opportunities, and utilizes a couple of them.  The ending left me disappointed though.  Maybe I missed some extra moments in the experience.  There is also some stuttering frame rate issues.  Given the time used to make it, the game is good, but lacking.  I hope to see some projects from you in the future.  This is the first game in the video 

  

Thanks for the video and for your feedback, yeah, I know, it could be better optimized but... it's a game jam.

Doesn't let me download. Says its hosted on incompatible website.

It's strange, nobody has reported errors when downloading. It's a ZIP file and is hosted on Google Drive... check if you have activated any firewall, antivirus, spyware, or any software that may prevent the download.
If you still can't download it, tell me, please.

Thank you very much for that experience! The atmosphere and the sounds were excellent but I was quite disappointed with the lenght and the quick ending :( Still, I know that it was a short project for a Scream Jam. Anyway great job! :) Here's my little playthrough (Polish language)

Thank you for the video and for playing!!

Graphics are nice, a little bit of ambiance, but the scares could use work, other than that it was kinda nice, a little too short though. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fUU-1XpckWk&t=23s

Thanks for your comments and for the video!

Hey, I enjoyed playing this but I would've like a little more substance, you know? I wish the game had a physical antagonist that chased me around or something. Also, I feel like this would be a good game for a hiding mechanic! Good gamejam submission here [thumbs up]


Thanks for playing and for the video! Yeah, I would have liked to implement more things, I did what I could to finish before the deadline of the jam.
