The Abyss

Follow 11

You wake up in a dark, damp tunnel, lit only by a flashlight discarded nearby, with no memory of how you got here. The only exit is locked with 5 locks and you're sure there's something down here with you. Sometimes it's better to hide in the dark, but don't forget to give your eyes time to adjust before you go wandering... Can you find all 5 keys before it finds you? WASD to move F to toggle flashlight ESC to pause As my first ever game I decided to keep things quite simple, it was mostly a learning exercise to prove to myself that I could actually finish a project. As such, if you don't like the game I would appreciate constructive feedback so I know where I went wrong and can improve next time! On the other hand, if you do like it, I'd love to know what I did right!

    I love this game. I still have no idea why it effectively scared me to badly. I was screaming my head off a two points, and that's coming from a guy who acts like a hardened warrior! Well made and kudos to the developer!

    Good game! Youtu.be

    It gave me quite a few scares! The maze is super hard to find your way around in but that doesn't really take from the game! I'd recommend it :D

      Thanks!

      I originally thought about including a chalk mechanic to make knowing where you've been easier, but I kind of like the disorientation not having it brings. Perhaps in a future project.

    Hey did a little video on this and I managed to get all 5/5 keys! I really enjoy horror games like these, so creepy and terrifying! Also is the thing chasing you supposed to be just a red cloud? Didn't know if it was a glitch or not :) Video: Youtu.be

      Glad you liked it! :)

      Yes, the monster was partly inspired by the smoke monster from Lost, although the particle effects didn't work as well as I'd hoped in the cramped interiors.
