Had more fun then I thought I would with this one.

Great job.

If Nun Massacre was 3rd person

Fun game! shadowy corners really became my bestfriend when avoiding Scissor Killer. I really love the end of the game, its very bitter sweet - we survived but to what benefit?

It was a good game, the atmosphere makes you pay attention. I would have liked it to be longer, but it is still worth the price.

Wanted to check this one out for a while and it didn't disappoint! Excited to check out Cannibal Abduction next 🙂

Beware the scissors! Super fun throwback game. The villain is absolutely terrifying...I know, scissors, how scary can it be? The answer = Very Scary. The right length, creepy environment perfect for exploration, and some Spooky sounds. 

In you're still unsure, here's my playthrough:

Terrifying

It is a good game! I got it to let my friend watch but I got to scared, safe to say I never played the game!

This game was a lot of fun! It nailed the classic survival horror vibe and even managed to up the terror intensity of those classic games. This is definitely one of the better indie games in this genre. I can't wait to check out Cannibal Abduction next! Great work!

Cool game! I watched Jack play it. I don't know if I'm just dumb, but I don't understand the ending. Who is that hanging? Kev or the Snipper, or are they the same person? Was it to frame Adam? Did the Snipper hang Kevin?

Great game! I really enjoyed the distorted 3rd person camera angles, it really added to the dread and suspense. This game has a unique feel to it so could potentially be connected to future games by Selwi. Hope to see more from this developer.

Oh what a fun little game this was! It is a short and sweet game great for stream in between bigger games. I streamed it as a filler and I don't regret a thing! We had some great laughs as well as some good scares. I would highly recommend using the over the shoulder perspective if you are having trouble with the controls. I sure did!
The credit song by "Skulptur" is a bop!!!

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!

im broke. :(

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.

Hey everyone, I also played this game, I will be happy if you take look :)


really loved this game! not a lot of games can get away with using no ambient music to scare people but this game was really terrifying, gameplay above if you enjoy be sure to hit the sub button guys! 

I kinda like this

I love this game so much <3

Incredible game, can't wait to see more from you!

That game was scary but fun as the same time I love it ....
