Dread of Laughter is a survival horror game where the player has to survive the attack of a serial killer. You play as Catheryn Barnett, youngest daughter in the family that owns a farm in the middle of the woods. Soon you will realise that you and your family are the prey to a serial killer lurking in the woods. Your objective in Dread of Laughter is to survive the attack of a serial killer who is lurking around the house trying to get to you as well as completing objectives that will either help you or the killer? Which objective is worth doing to save yourself? Only you can decide. There is multiple ways to beat the game as well as multiple ways to get killed. Every decision you make has to be made with care as you never know what the killer has in store for you. Will you try and fix the generator outside in the barn to get the lights working so you don't have to rely on your flashlight? Or will you rather try and find the phone jammer he has set to block your calls?

We recorded a small preview of the gameplay of Dread of Laughter.

Posted by on


Today we recorded another gameplay teaser for Dread of Laughter. It s 3 minute long video showing small bits of gameplay set in the beginning of the game. The full gameplay of the video was close to 10 minutes but we don't want to show everything just yet because we want the players to experience the game without too many spoilers.

In this video you can see bits of our inventory system that we are still improving, hiding mechanic although it is still missing its animations when the character goes hiding under the table and some AI behaviour. Next to do in our list is our animations, randomised locations for key and objective spawns and few AI and player improvements.

We would like to thank our watchers, followers and backers! Our kickstarter still hasn't reached the goal but that doesn't let us down as we are still making the game with or without it. If you'd like to back us however you can do so here!
