[REC] Shutter..

is a horror game made by KGames - Solo Indie DeveloperKGames is a independent game maker only worked on by one developer, Me known as Kumi. It was founded in 2011 as KumiGames (later changed to KGames) and [REC] Shutter is my first officially released game.

[REC] Shutter.. is a horror game where you must progress through levels while avoiding paranormal and solving puzzles. The story will progress as the player goes through the levels.This Game will focus not only you recording Even his Story and his Life. You take the role of a Reporter named Connor, which will be reporting Penny hill a Dark Hunted Asylum. You will be equipped with the latest equipment; Animated camera which includes night vision and a Shutter effect. Filming every action you take and taking screenshot's of paranormal Activity. Game will include feature's like Fear, Stealth, investigation And much much more.


Health System: The player has a low amount of health, and will die after around 4 hits from an enemy. The player's health will be monitored by the cracks on the camera screen. This means you're camera is damaged and you need to fix it, To Fix it in some levels you will find a Repair box, Use this to fix you're camera cracks. Camera cracks will only disappear when You fix it via an toolbox. If the player dies, he will drop to the ground and the screen will fade to black. The game will then automatically load the last saved game.

Panic System: If something paranormal happens, the player's panic level will increase. Staring at enemies will also cause the panic level to increase. A higher panic level means the player becomes harder to control due to Fear. The player will also occasionally shake when panic levels are high. Fear decrease when a safe area is reached.Also Pills can be taken to decrease panic level.

Inventory System: The player has an inventory to store items such as health packs, Pill, and keys. This means the player can use the items when they choose, rather than forcing them to use them at a specific time.

Movement system: The player will slowly walk and can sprint a little quickly. This means walking is slow enough to easily investigate, and sprinting is fast enough to escape enemies. Stamina will be unlimited.

Camera System: Pressing F will activate Night Vision to make it easier for the player to see in dark areas. Press the right mouse button will make the camera take a picture - sound plays and white HUD fades out. An objective could be to take photos of items.

Save/Load System: Auto save zones will automatically save the game when the player enters them. Resuming game in the menu will automatically load the last auto save.

Investigate System: clicking the mouse button means the player investigates the item. clicking again causes the item to be picked up.

Stealth system: Pressing V will activate stealth system, where the players see where is darker hide from The paranormal.

Zooming system: Pressing R to zoom in and T to zoom out. This will help you check for objects and see things more clearly before going in the way!

[REC] Shutter website is now updated

[REC] Shutter itself didn't get any updates, as I mentioned the game was stopped for a while and for now, it won't be continued (Maybe someday it will be continued) . However, I'm going through websites and IndieDB and updating the sites for my games, you can now check the new website for [REC] Shutter along with the new website for KGames, many thanks for all your support. Also, now donations are accepted for whoever wishes to support a lonely developer in game making.

"[REC] Shutter is now stopped in development, I apologize and I wish to thank you all for the support and those who supported me and my first game project [REC] Shutter. You can still download the game from the official website and play through the 4-level "demo" and imagine your own ending."

Okay, looks like it was made with "The game Creator's" FPS Creator game engine or another free game creator software, but the problem is all your graphics are library graphics and when crawling in the air-duct system (which is actually on the FPS creator site) you can still hear footsteps. ?? wft ?? So its really just a demo for the FPS Game Creator engine.... is this really a game ?

Yep, That's what it's made with. No, I Dont understand you really, What you mean? it's my game SHUTTER Demo not some demo for FPSC Engine, Yes it is really a game, as you can see there are some youtube videos on it too. I will be happy to see you make one on this engine, leaving you some feedbacks on your game :). Also it's really had me thinking, Did you make a account just to REVIEW my game?
Also giving it a rating of 1, and saying that there's no fighting or shooting, This is a run and hide game like penumbra and not a Zombie Shootout.

There are so many of these "types of games" out now, you really have to make it fun or different....this is a bad copy of what is already out there....its not scary, and theres nothing to do. The camera thing has been done before and its lame, and the SLOW walking and Static ??? Going room to room to get a key is super boring...I am sorry I am being honest. You need way better graphics that you have done yourself, I have seen these graphics before on other games...

Umm, I am getting all these emails from you about my review. Sorry I have played a lot of games, this is my rating "1 star" it looks like about 1 month worth of effort....please don't attack my review just because you made the game - you can't force people to "LIKE" your game...

Just as an added note as I wanted to do a "first time" play through commentary and I could not open the first door for a sign would appear saying "K" So I assume I use K to open a door but that didn't work. So I then looked at the instructions and it said Enter/Right click...neither of them worked for me not even when I tried them both together. Also at the start before you are in the room "all the walls and floors are white" then it goes fine after about 20 seconds and I am in the first room. Looks good!. . but I personally am unable to make it past the first room.

See the walkthrough located in the 'Tutorials' Section, The 'K' Means the door needs a KEY to OPEN, Check around the room a little and there is a key to you're right. Pick it up and Press the Left click/Enter to open the door . Some people confuse the 'K', 'K' Means 'KEY'. The 'white' room i think you mean the static? If so than that's the camera being Set up :) .

Thanks for your feedback, Mabye i will increase the size of the border in the game since it's annoying people. I Think what you mean by 'flying around the screen' is the woble? That's when the player start's to panic and when he walks, since he is holding a camera, The camera is wobeling. I hope you understand what i mean :D

This game is beautiful, Though the 'walking' seems slowish, it fits perfectly in with the over all world and atmosphere of the game. I honestly cannot complain because the speed is perfect. I'm sure if anyone of us were to go to a asylum that was spooky we would all walk slow. Honestly this man has balls becuase I would sit in a corner for 10 minutes if somethingwas chasing me and leave. So the walking is perfect for those who are complaining about it becuase it fits how a actually person would…

*Random frequent tv static with loud audio (makes no sense on a camera during recording). The very beginning starts you in a room you can't quite see and no determinable direction how to begin. *Ridiculously slow movement with no run option. Since you can't fight back, you can't even run away when attacked. *There is little in the way of exploration. Linear and far too dark. *No gamma setting. No torch. Just a lot of black corners and corridors. *No control options. Not even a place to see what…
