What is that?
A downloadable game for Windows
Made in 10 sleepless days for the Caveware Digital 2020 Scream Jam!
This was my first Game Jam where I have put my skills to the test in both modelling & coding everything in such a short time frame. I have been learning game development over the last 7 months & hopefully you enjoy the game.
ABOUT THE GAME:
You arrive home from a long day at work. Tired, hungry & wet. You go to bed to start another day, but what happens during the night you can't explain. Someone, or something is in your garden & trying to get inside. Do you investigate all the commotion & try to get answers about what is hunting you in the night? Or do you bury your head in the sand & give in to death?
WASD - Move
Shift - Sprint
Spacebar - Jump
Q/E - Lean left & Right
Left Mouse/X - Interact with objects
Right Mouse - Bring up useable objects & use/switch

hi, big thx for the cool game. greetings from rosti 😘
thanks for playing Rosti! Left you a like & a sub. Keep doing what you are doing
Da fällt mir nur "WHAT IS THAT?" ein... Es ist ein echt gelungenes Spielchen wobei das Ende echt irgendwie seltsam war... 4/5 Sternen
Maaaaann I just love refrigerators
ABSOLUTELY LOVED THE HELL OUT OF IT just saying that monster freaked me out by like alot xD BUT FANTASTIC
Love it, could use a lot more polishing but that jump scare got me pretty hefty, the end was a bit disappointing in my opinion, but overall good work, Mr. gets impaled ;)
haha thanks so much for playing. Yeah, this was a game jam game & unfortunately I joined late so couldn’t implement all of the things I had planned. But thankfully it won first place and I am going to be working on like a remake/remaster during next year with actual combat & a more fleshed out story.
Thanks again for playing, I’ve dropped you a like and a sub.
Awesome mate! I followed you already and looking forward to play the remake/remaster! Thanks for the like and sub it's really not necessary but greatly appreciated :) if you want to hear my opinion I loved the fact that I did not know if I hurt that being or not that was almost like getting a sense of security due to "hey I got a weapon" and then the feeling of security started to crumble maybe you could exploit that false sense of security in a remake :)
I’m glad you said that because that’s exactly what I was going for, so that to me means I’m on the right track. Between now and then, I have a couple of things in the works along with Vidas Games Studio projects so I’m pretty busy.
No End House will be coming to steam & itchio, and I have a short experience type game coming in Q1. For the meantime though if you would like to check out EVP I would love to see a video from you on that and your thoughts for that game as that one was made in 5 days.
Builds so much tension. This game is a throwback to the old classics! Love it.
I love these horror jam games
Bro this is hilarious. Got some decent spooks too. I could not stop thinking about the Key & Peele skit where he says whhaaaat isssss thaaaat. lol. It is dope you can crank out a game so fast though! Keep it up!
hey man, thanks so much for checking it out. The game did have a limit of ten days but had to complete it quicker than that due to actual studio commitments. So I think it was done in like 6/7 days. Anyway, a lot of the mechanics were completed but not fully implemented. That being said, the response to this has been pretty great and a lot of people have requested for this to be expanded upon which I will do when I have finished my next couple of projects. Really dig the video man & the K&P skit is for real something I didn’t think of until you mentioned it lmao!
Thanks again for taking the time to play. Love you brother
The title alone was hilarious for a scary game. I liked the approach you took allowing the player to leave the house. A lot horror game are often stuck inside the house. I thought the voice acting was funny and solid. A few graphical mistakes like the stairs of the house, the key being really hard to see, massive chairs, and funky roof. I loved the monster chilling on my roof, and crawling on the walls that was scary. Interesting ending too... Overall, the game was fun to play and got a couple jump scares. For ten days to make this, good job!
hey, thanks for checking out my game & also leaving your thoughts. Yeah game jams can be a pain due to time restraints but I think overall the reception has been pretty good. I’ve received a lot of requests to continue it so at some point when I have finished my other games I’ll redo this without the time constraints & really focus on making this a more fleshed out experience. If you haven’t already, make sure to follow the itchio page for when the new stuff drops.
That feeling of impending doom when you realize your gun doesn't do squat against those beasts! Haha would've been nice to get some use out of it. The soundscape was decent, and I really liked how the game progressed through different areas. Instead of being confined to the typical house, or apartment, and you find yourself walking back in forth. The environment's design was a little off and incomplete, I could see objects doubled up when peering through windows, or windshields. Of course, 10 days isn't a lot for development, but maybe choose a smaller scale when time is limited. Keep on creating Aaron!
Hey man, thanks so much for playing. Glad you liked it. Thanks also for understanding about the time frame. Even though I had 10 days to finish it, I think overall it was done in 7 days due to actual studio commitments for our other games.
The reception for this has been overwhelming so I plan to recreate from the ground up. Thanks again & stay tuned for more
A bizarre game where you come home after a long day of work, you seem to be worried about strange creature sightings and want to check the radio for any news before you hit the sack and call it a night, but as the night progresses it seems your fears become reality.
The game is fun to play with some odd and clunky interactions but considering the game is made in just 10 days this is only a minor issue, making games in such a short time period of time is always impressive. There is a good little scare thrown in that appears in a rather unexpected place.
Overall an enjoyable experience and a good, fun playthrough.
hey! Thanks so much for checking out my game & leaving a short review. I very much enjoyed your video. I think what makes that scare so good & important is the pacing. By the time you get to the scare you are pretty confident not much is going to happen, so really pleased that had some decent reception.
Thanks again for playing. Make sure to follow the page for more games & short experiences that are coming soon.
Thanks for making this game, this game gave me the laughs and the scares all in one go. Look forward to more of your work in the future.
Thanks so much for checking out my game. Loved the video! Dropped you a reply and a retweet on Twitter. Thank you for the tag :)
THIS GAME WAS REALLY CREEPY! THE ONLY THING I WOULD ADD IS MORE OF A SENSE OF DIRECTION. I MADE A GAMEPLAY ON MY YOUTUBE, CHECK IT OUT!
Thanks so much for the playthrough & the feedback. Yeah, I can agree with that, most people I feel we’re not sure if there was stuff to do as each hour passed so as I update the game I will bear this in mind. Thanks again for playing! Glad you enjoyed it :)
Hahaha that was fun. Thanks! Here's my playthrough:
thanks so much for playing! Really appreciate the time you took to play my game. Make sure to follow the itchio page for new & upcoming stuff :)
Hey, I had a really fun time with your game. It made me smile, and I had just a genuinely good time playing it. Definitely would have liked to see a little combat there at the end!
thanks so much for playing, glad you liked it. Yeah time wise for the game jam I didn’t have enough to sort it out, however I am working on a more solid polished version. If you follow the itch page you’ll be notified when it’s live :)
loved this game!! I had a fun time ranting and raving at the main character!
Hey man, great video! Thanks so much for playing. Left you a like on your video & a comment :)
Nice story, creepy :)
What is this?
What is what?
Fun little game! For something that was made in 10 days I am impressed just wished I could have used the gun more! Thanks Aaron!
NO PROBS! Glad you liked it. Yeah as you can imagine, time is really against you in a game jam so alot of the mechanics were done but just couldn't be implemented in time. However, follow me on itchio & when the full game is ready, you will get to experience it how I intended it to be :)
couldnt unlock the door wouldnt let me use key :/
hey, so collect the key with the left click. Then on the door handle use the right click to bring up your usable objects and then select with left click. It works every time.
Side note, after each night you will need to pick up the key again.
Some silly bits, but solid game.
Thanks for playing the game. Yeah, I'm sure it's not for everyone. The game was made quite quickly so there were some corners cut. Ultimately the plan is to remake/update the game & make it a more playable & experience for all. Appreciate the time you took to check this out. Dropped you a sub & a like and a comment on YT.
This was... interesting! Keep going! Would love to see more.
Большое вам спасибо за то, что играете в мою игру! Я очень ценю комментарии и рад, что они заставили вас подпрыгнуть
This Short horror game was a lot of fun for being made in a short amount of time for a game jam overall pretty cool concept and other than the back door key giving me trouble it was a lot of fun and only 1 jump scare ended up getting me to jump so ig you win this time lol overall a great time check below for my walkthrough!
YAY! I WON! Thanks so much for playing. Left you a comment on YT & also dropped you a sub! You are awesome!
Thank you for the feedback & I agree with you. I am also glad you understand about it being a gamejam game & that time is restricted on these things. Not to mention I also have a full time job & I am also a father of 3 little ones so yeah! Time really is stretched. Glad you liked it overall & to absolutely no one's surprise, yes the game is being expanded upon in quite a bit of detail. I have a couple of other projects I am looking at completing first, then I will be back to this.
Cool game, really enjoyed it. I made a video of it as well.
