no jumpscares

CW: rapidly flickering lights and potential motion sickness.


made during 1 week for an "isolation" themed horror game jam! first time ever making a horror game, who-hoo! (sorry about the ladder climbing mechanic. i know. trust me, i know.)

i tried to get a webGL build going, but i think the game's a bit too big for that :') only download, sorry! hope you still give it a go. <3

also, i unfortunately wasn't able to test the mac build, so please let me know if you encounter any issues!

hope you enjoy uwu


lyrics of "(they long to be) close to you" written by hal david and burt bacharach.

Absolutely adored your rendition of that Carpenters song.  I don't think I'll ever be able to hear their version in my head ever again after this.  >w<

Awesome game too!  The last bit had me go "Nope!"  lol

Great game, loved it!!


This was surreal and eerie, stressful and interesting!  You did a fantastic job!  I loved it!

I really enjoyed this game. No big jump scares but pretty creepy . I never thought of horror when I heard this song but def will now


Very nice creepy little game. I liked it.


I think that young man at the end there is gonna carry my off to somewhere nice! Maybe Pennsylvania...or Detroit.


Very interesting and creepy game. Great job!


fearful antagonizing pain the mind settles on isolation and separation.  withdrawn from society as the world ending, no hope left.  town lost, nobody left, all the flock have gone.  somber haunting song attracts visitor uninvited.

At first I was at a loss as to how to get angrier, until I saw eyes being picked out of sockets.  Yikes :o]

This game took me places I didn't expect. The way you sang Burt Bacharach's 'Close To You' makes Karen Carpenter spin in her shallow grave, because of its creepiness.

Overall, a very enjoyable game and well done. Hope this inspires you to do more. This gets you a 5 star rating and I'm following you.


Very interesting game. 


I really enjoyed it! The concept was pretty interesting and I liked the changes every day, and that music was great, some people including me are interested to know if we can find this version of the song somewhere to listen? Aside that great job with the game :)


hey hey, thank you! ^^

currently you can only hear that song in the game - that's me singing, and i just recorded that for the game :D but if people are interested, i could put it on soundcloud or something


That's really cool, you should definitely put it somewhere for others to be able to listen, it's actually pretty neat.


Oh I was looking for this version too. I found a lot of covers, but yours is my favorite anyway.

up! your version is haunting



hah thanks, really enjoyed your commentary :D 7/10, appreciate it!




Great game, love the short visual short stories, the creepiness of the shadow figures looked amazing. Especially when you see so many of the birds circling above, and it does an amazing job of building size when you have all of the houses in the landscape.

The game just feels completely creepy especially on the last day, having the music playing as you watch them slowly descend. 

It’s a really imaginative idea for a game, the story to visuals has been one of the more unique short stories I’ve played.

thank you! really appreciate the detailed feedback! :D


The sketchy monster design is really neat, and that music is haunting. Well done.

thank you, really loved your submission to the jam as well!!


love the game thank you 

subscribe to my channel thank you all :)

haha and i loved your commentary, thanks for playing! :D
