A downloadable game

This is a short game experience was a 2 week project designed to portray a childhood fear of mine. The aim is for it to resonate with anyone who remembers what it was like to be afraid of the dark as a kid.

Be sure to have headphones on. No jump scares.

Really short, but I can see what you were going for.

Needs screenshots etc. but an interesting and strangely familiar and comfortable experience in the end.

Such a great little experience that most can relate to, I really enjoyed this.
