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?

CONTROLS:

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

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 

Aaron

hell yeah bro! I  will be watching your twitter for your next   one!  I highly appreciate the view and the kind words!!!!!

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!

Good work!

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!

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!

(+1)

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 :/

(+1)

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.

Thanks man, yea i realized it was a jam game, which are usually  done in a rush. 

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!

(+1)

YAY! I WON! Thanks so much for playing. Left you a comment on YT & also dropped you a sub! You are awesome!

love ya brother thanks for the opportunity!

I played through its pretty fun, I do point out things i notice about the game in the video but i am not super critical of it since I understand during a game jam you can do everything to make the game 100% some loopholes and shortcuts are necessary to make the time limit. But other than that I can see potential for the game, those things do need fixed first but it's 90% there already. Would love to see a more fleshed out version with those fixed problems fixed and more of a story

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.

I can help with 3d models. Thanks for game

Hi Panda, thanks so much for playing & glad you enjoyed the game. I left a comment for you on YouTube. Thank you for the offer on the models however I like to do things on my own & I’m still in the learning phase. So I will get better at it :) Hope you are safe & well! 

Good! Thank you and good luck :)

A wonderful game for how long this dev has been learning to make games AND the time frame given. Terrific job on this <3

(+1)

Thank you Scruncho for the kind words. I’m glad you liked the game. Everyday is a learning experience and I try to learn a new thing each day. :)

Thanks so much for making this game Aaron, I´d quite enjoyed everything in this game, from the story to the jumpscares, your VA is absolutely fantastic you really know what you´re doing, it was very impressive how much you´ve achieved for only 10 days, as I said in my video and it´s worth mentioning again here: the tension from your game really build up and left me speechless at the ending, I´m very proud of the outcome. Congrats so much on having it on the popular page and for entering it to the 2020 Scream Jam.


Hey Anii, thank you so much for your kind and lovely words & I’m so glad you liked my game jam entry. I worked pretty hard on it from day one as I really wanted to make sure I finished it in time, being my first game jam & the fact that I have only been doing game dev for several months. So it means a lot to me that you liked it. I left you a like on your video & also a comment. 

You are awesome!

A cool little game. The atmosphere change was well received. The deadbolt had me checking the door every chance I could. And the game made me jump a couple times

All - All.   GGs   :)

Thank you so much for playing Ty.  I’m glad these little added things spook you. I feel the build up to the end was really well done & it got a lot of people because by that time, they felt safe & secure. I’ll probably work on this a little more when a few other projects are done as I have a few ideas but for now, just a quick glimpse of what is to come. Left you a comment on YT & a sub!

np keep up the good work.

Very fun !!! =D

¡Hola y gracias por jugar mi juego! Realmente lo aprecio. Te dejé un comentario en YouTube y también una sub. tan contento de haberte hecho gritar jajaja
(+1)

This was very interesting! A nice buildup of tension leading up to the ending! I'd love to see a longer version of this! Great job! 

(+2)

Hey Adrionic, thanks for playing my game & making this awesome video. I left you a comment on YT & also left you a sub. Great content. Glad you liked the game. There will be a longer version implemented, as I'm sure you know game jam's are really short on time so we do the best we can within that time frame. Make sure to follow me on itchio for updates & new releases.


Aaron

They are watching

Hey, thanks so much for playing. I think you are one of the only people to discover the creature on the roof watching you after it killed the neighbour. I really enjoyed your video & I left you a comment on YouTube & also left you a sub. Thanks so much for taking the time to do this & appreciate your support.

 Aaron

Awesome game!. Great story, great characters, and the scenary is amazing! Hope to see more content from you!

Thanks so much for posting! Really appreciate the video & the thoughts. Make sure to follow my itch page to stay up to date & of course, with Twitter also.

Not mine but this was a pretty cool video

Thanks so much for sharing!

I checked the guy out & left him a comment! So great to see so many people playing my game :)

wtf

So the key is on the bookshelf for you to explore the back garden. You use the right click mouse to bring up your inventory & then left click to use the item. 

Appreciate the video. If you get stuck, check out some of the other videos here to help you on your playthrough. 

Thanks for taking the time to try my short game jam game ;)
