You are in the woods by yourself. Your torch and camp fire are your only sources of light. Will the fire run out of wood? Will your torch's batteries hold out? Is there something else in the woods with you? You need to make it back to your ute but can you find it? Everything except for the map is random so each play-through will be fresh.

-- CHANGELOG --

  • * Changed Placeholder Monster to something that is (hopefully) much better.
  • - ADDED NEW GAMEPLAY FEATURES!
    - Multiple fires are now placed around the map.
    - Fires are safe havens and ward off creatures that can harm you. (Breathing indicates that you need to return to a fire.)
    - You can now die. (You get returned to the menu.)

The main change to gameplay is now you can die. You have to run from fire to fire to avoid being attacked by whatever lurks out there. The breathing of the character indicates that you need to get to a fire soon. Upon death, you will be returned to the main menu.

Very nice game, I loved the growling sounds though I didn't see any monster :D it took a long time to find the car.

Haha, I'm glad you actually managed to find the car, I know it can be quite difficult sometimes. Thank you for playing and making a video. :)

I really enjoyed the game even in it's early stage (v0.03) and Iwas able to see the growling "smoke demon thingy" and had quite a few scares :D. Even if the game doesn't have any objective so far I liked it. Actually, the fact that you don't have any objective and is just lost in a huge forest makes it even more creepy. Check out my take on the game (https://youtu.be/nkVMSxaEzHk) and try it out for yourself. It's a promising Lost-in-the-woods-and-will-crap-your-pants game :P.

Thanks man :) I hope you liked it and thank you for making a video. There is one sorta objective/ending/point to the game and that is to find your blue ute so you can go home. The spawning is randomised so finding it can be a bit difficult haha :)

Hmm, there isn't really something that you have to do in the game. I did a video on it, watch before trying it.

I liked how the game felt walking around and how I did feel lost. But overall, I would of liked having a reason to play.

The main aim is to find your blue ute. I have planned in a future update that fires will burn out, forcing the player to move on or be killed. I really focused on the atmosphere when I started making this game so I'm glad you liked that. Anyway, thanks for playing and making a video :)

Played some of it but were unable to find where I was going, if it is even somewhere I'm supposed to go? xD

Gave me a good few scares actually. You definitely have some potential here.

The unknown is what I find most scary so the wandering around lost hopefully creates a feeling of isolation and desperation. There is a place that you're supposed to go and that is to your ute, which is blue and in the newest version you can die which should hopefully make it a bit scarier and more intense.

Anyway, thankyou for playing and making a video, I hope you liked it :)

I did like it! Oh really? How did I miss that... I must have been walking the wrong way haha. I'll give the new version a go later on. :)
