A downloadable game for Windows


The Grattenweld Incident is a Lovecraftian horror story set in 1920’s Ohio. You play as Silas Morgan, stumbling upon a secret hidden near the home of his deceased father. We see the story unfold through the eyes of Silas as he explores an ancient cave, embarks on a fevered research mission and treks across the country to uncover the ancient secrets that scratch at the walls of his mind and memory.

This fully narrated mystery is the result of a great deal of research including the beautifully rendered Public Library of Cincinnati, demolished in 1955, among other details and references.
Come take a look.

BUG NOTE: Do not walk backwards when you load into the CAVE scene as this will trigger the alternate ending but without playing the intended audio clip.
This is intended to be fixed in a few weeks when time permits.

I downloaded this game but can't figure out how to install it. It looks really fun and really exciting but I can't figure out how to run it! If someone could tell me how that would be great! Thanks.

Hi Roboticalcat, I'm glad to see your interest. I have added download instructions and suggest you delete the version you have already and download the file again, as it has been updated to a new (and better) version. I really hope you enjoy it. :)


Going into this game I’ve got to say I didn’t have the highest expectations (I’ve played a LOT of lack lustre indie games lately), but this game really has a lot of heart and I really enjoyed my time with it.

I love the style of English used in the narration, I love the art style in the sections where you do mild exploring. Even the little thing where you type the level name to enter it! The story is short but compelling, and handles itself just right for a short experience.

Honestly, I think you have a lot of potential with making indie games, and I really look forward to seeing more of your projects! 

Here’s my play through for those interested: 

Thank you very much, I'm really glad you enjoyed it. There is an updated version coming shortly that addresses a number of the issues you spotted and it was really interesting to watch your video on it. I kinda wish we'd actually had your backing music though :P

The game has been updated with a later version, but the experience will be the same, just with a bit more.
