A downloadable game for Windows

Download NowName your own price

A psychological horror experience. Explore dark chambers, hallways, shrines and corridors, try to get out of your confinement, and find notes scattered by the last person who visited along the way.

But you're not alone!

Monsters are actively looking for you, hiding in the shadows where they are completely invisible, and only moving when you don't look at them. Scurry between sources of light and always look behind you, and you might just make it to the end alive. If there even is an end...?

  • Move carefully to avoid monsters that might show up right behind you at any time! Dynamic and unpredictable, but fair AI.
  • Build up the tension to amazing ambient music by Eric Matyas! Features a previously unreleased custom arrangement.
  • No flashlight or lanterns there to protect you - study your surroundings and move carefully!
  • No cheap jump scares! The game is based around psychological horror instead of mere startling the player.
  • Uncover an open-to-interpretation backstory about a descent into madness!
  • Stochastic decision making means you'll never be able to tell where the monsters will show up next! Every playthrough is different!
  • Dynamic lighting, fire, distortion and fog effects!
  • A vast underground labyrinth to explore, with hundreds of rooms to lose yourself in!

I know this game is a bit old, but i downloaded and tried to play it and I keep getting a fatal error and get forced to abort the application. Please help :)

What is the error and when does it occur? Unless I know what it is, I can't really fix it :P

It occurs literally right as i try to start the game. I press enter and it freezes up and tells me there was a fatal error.

From what I can tell, that error message means that you don't have enough VRAM (graphics card memory). Not sure if there's much I can do about that. Are you having a lots of other stuff running when you try to play the game, and/or do you know if your graphics card is old?

Not at all, i thought the issue was that I had things running in the background, but it wont run either way. and theres no way its my graphics card being old af because i just got this computer last year. :(

Hmm, weird... *scratches head*

Then my two educated guesses would be that you either don't have DirectX9 installed (since DirectX11 is standard nowadays) or that your screen is plugged into the integrated graphics port instead of the graphics card's port. The game is pretty badly optimized (GMS isn't really the best tool to do 3D with) but I've been able to run it on my 2011 potato laptop.

Pretty cool, liked the audio.

are you going to make an FPS horror Engine?

I already made a FPS engine that can do both horror and action, use that. https://yaru.itch.io/yarufps
