Awesome game! 10/10 would recommend

Your game really got us jumping from our seats haha. We had a lot of fun but it was a little frustrating as every time we failed we had to start from the very beginning. But all in all, great game and the scares got us good!

Gameplay starts at 9:02

I really liked your game! I don't know if I was just being unlucky but those things really didn't want me to read that one note I needed to progress. xD
Here's the video from my playthrough if you feel like checking it out. :)

This game has to be one of my favorites, I was just searching the internet randomly for creepy old style horror games, and I bumped into this. Absolute bomb, a few things made me go into a shocked state (I don't think any other game has done this to me at all), but overall I think this is pretty scary on its own. Things are constantly after you that's all I'll say.

markiplier played this

Really liked this game, beautiful art and scary af.

My girlfriend is going through it next >:)

Fuckin spooky

could anybody help me ?

when i go to bot the game i can hear sound but i cant see anything its blank. 

PS. thank you for your help!

I haven't actually jumped from a jump-scare in a long time! You got me. I bailed on this game to try another because I failed to figure out the schtick, but now that I've watched the beginning of BerryDeaf's video I'll give it another go.

You can do it! Go for it! A quick tip: Be sure to read all the notes, one gives a clue on how to progress.

I like the concept BUT I did get stuck and couldn't find my way around the place, so there was a lack of progression which was fustrating!

Can you update this pls? it isnt playable on mac anynmore :(

-Made a Video. (Year Ago)

i got scared. also, how did you make unity run in gba?! :)

Can you make this 64 Bit for MacOS?

+1! Would love to play it but Catalina doesn't allow me to :(

Although the distro for Mojave doesn't show up in the App Store you can still get it by using this direct link:


from there you can search YouTube for tutorials on how to partition a space on your drive to boot to Mojave. You switch back and forth by holding "ALT" during boot-up.

this game is so scary

good game

Hey Shane.Z this is a message from Shane Lefler Your game here fucking scared me i left the game i am frighted easly but i have not been this level of scared this is a master peace good day Shane.Z

I love how you just made a game that you can show your anger to the ghost...literally. A bit too intense for me tho


Loved it. 3 days is impressive.

Thank you for this video! I would have gotten frustrated with the game if I hadn't seen you figure out how to run away. I'd been wondering why I couldn't pick anything up, but now I see that's on purpose.

Ah glad to be of help! It took me a few tries to figure out the game as well.


I can't play the game.

It's not a technical problem, it's just that it gets so tense that I chicken out.

damn was this game is fun

(1 edit) (+1)(-1)

i had no idea what i was doing lol, starts @ 18:40

My god it is scary, but I love it.

It's hard, scary, and well made. The resolution, filters are pleasant to the eye!

Yeah silly jumpscares! This game scared to death! The grahpics are cool though keep up the good work.


boo you got spooked


Thanks for the game! I really liked the concept and the style but did find it a bit too hard to navigate at the end so I gave up before finding the key. Amazing work for 4 days though! 


is my first jump scare and i... so scare

tbh the first jump scare made me feel like my soul left my body

Very cool game. The graphics are very simple but they go along way. The monster is scary even with the silly way you deal with them.

Wow. Blown away by this game. I loved the aesthetic but it wasn't until I went hands on with that I found out how horrifying it can actually be. I absolutely love it!

Oh wow. This game surprised us. The look is awesome and didn't expect how tense and scary the game will be. The game is well crafted to look like a game boy game but creating really good techniques to scary the player. The sound is superb and brings a great atmosphere throughout the game.

LOVE  this

OK, this actually genuinely surprised me... in many ways.
I normally think of myself being quite harsh when playing and 'judging' little indie games, especially horror games as, lets face it, most are pretty bad. But this i really enjoyed. Enjoyed a bit too much i think haha. 
I first read the word 'jumpscare' and though, great, another game, that throws, cheep nasty jumpscares, expecting thats what makes a good horror. but no, this game is so much more. the atmosphere alone is creepy as hell, not being able to see that far ahead of you, then constant strange sounds and the fear that something is always lurking around the next corner. Absolutely love the graphics of this and always think people underestimate a game when using this style. Still freaky with the filter and probably makes it moreso because of it.
I recorded a little bit of this game, didnt get very far as i was getting a bit lost. Think i was meant to be hunting for a key, but couldnt find it.
But i will definitely be going  back to this game in my own time, thats for sure. Such a great little game. Honestly cant give you feedback on how to improve it. in 4 days, this is kinda impressive. Well made!

I really enjoy the style of this game. It's a classic retro feel, and it also goes to show that games don't need extremely detailed graphics to give you a little scare! This achieved just that with a very nice style. Overall, it's super fun, I'd def recommend it to folks who like thrills, even for those who are scary-cats! (Like me)


Monster: Exists.

Me: *Middle finger* 

Monster: I'm scared

beautiful literature



I didn't think a game with this style would scare me. I was wrong! 


it's good spooky time!


Somebody put zombies in my Obra Dinn!
