This was one of the scariest games that I've ever played... seriously. My throat was feeling scratchy after all of that screaming lol! EXCELLENT job, selewi! You nailed the atmosphere, sounds, graphics, etc. I have to share this game in a Discord server for creators that I'm in!

Managed to complete this in just under 35 minutes. It's an incredibly good game if you're into short indie horror with an easy to understand story and a clear goal. ESCAPE!

Had such a fantastic time playing this!! I died a lot, and it was very spooky. 

Also thank you to Selewi (Tomás) for popping into my stream to watch, such an amazing surprise!


Well crafted!

A wonderful and fun experience. Short and straight to the point, doesn't waste your time.

Me and my audience loved it!

Loved This Game 

This was awesome, amazing short horror game! The snipper was terrifying!

It was a good horror game. Ah, the jumpscare scared me off my chair lmao

This was ABSOLUTELY UNREAL!!! The jumpscare in this game is probably one of the most terrifying jumpscares I've seen in a horror game for a while. Thank you so much for creating this game, I screamed my absolute loudest which is something that I haven't done in a video for a while now. XD

you scream to much, not a fan of that

Great Game. I really digged the atmosphere and the tension. It reminded me of powerdrill massacre. Anyways I Made A Letplay on it. Cant wait to see what else you make!!!. P.S||| I Bought This On Steam.

this game is so creepy

It is even with VHS cassete desigh!!! Man, this is like Halloween movies!

So far, this was super great! Roaming around the dark place with the wonky controls and then finding things as you progress and hearing the scissor dude was pretty scary! (Video below if anyone's interested!)

 Not sure how, but I only managed to come across him like two times while running around, but just the sounds that were happening plus the camera distorting was really freaky and made everything super scary! 

The dark maze of a place also really added to feeling trapped and the spookiness. The environment was just so creepy and the killer roaming around made it that much spookier; just hearing the snipping noises and the doors opening and closing were great cues and really well done!

 Can't wait to see more of the game in the future (Think this was a beta so far?) Good luck for your project and hope it goes well!

I've enjoyed the game to the point of making a review on it and I am looking forward to your future work. I’ve had Aske wishlisted ever since Realms Deep and found it a welcome surprise to learn your behind it. You definitely have the formula for survival horror and old-school FPS down.
