Short, but one of my favorites!  The jump scare actually works well here too.

I played the 2nd one first cos im an idiot but here ya go.

Awesome and creepy game. 

A short but terrifying game! Glad I played this and recorded a video on it! :D I'd recommend you play this if you like free-roam but short horror games!

I could have played that game for an eternity without even realising! But super fun & creepy game with a solid jump scare at the end! Nice job 

The game was very short but I really enjoyed playing it! That jump scare caught me off guard lol. Great job!

Love games like this :)

The game is great. We had so much fun with it. Loved the arcade game.


so much fun!! great job Justin and Matt!! I would love to see a full game of this

Great Job Guys! 🤘 I just want to know how long I have to play the arcade game before I win 😂 (Highscore Killer starts at timestamp 7:58)

SKIP TO [5:19]

Just played it, Short but sweet. The concept was really cool, Ill be looking forward to your future projects.

so i tried downloading it and it worked, but when i try to play it keeps saying error and something with the bianary?

Gotta say you got me xD. Would be nice if the game in the machine wasnt just going left to right, and had some ,idk, levels, but i understand it was made quickly. Anyway, great game, great theme, and i would love to get more of the story!


I was surprised at how I didn't see the ending coming. Watching other gamers play, it seems a lot didn't see it coming, either. This is a great game to feature in a three-horror-game video or by itself - sweet, short, and to the point. I love how the carpeting inside the abandoned arcade was designed, though it would've tied the place nicely if there were pictures and burned out neon signs and lights on the walls. I edited a couple of sound effects in my video at the part where I reached the high score on the arcade; I thought it gave the arcade a nice touch.

Thanks and great play through video! I agree--I made this quickly for a game jam. I used some premade assets, but made a good portion of them myself. I started running out of time and had to skimp out arcade decorations.

commentary  gameplay 

Thanks for playing!


A short Jumpscare but very SPICY GAMEPLAY!


Thanks, I enjoyed watching your playthrough!

thank you!

Nice game! 

No Commentary 

Thanks for playing!

Short, Sweet, and Straight to the Point! Just how I like it!

Thanks and great playthrough!

the games atmosphere and build up are great but its a little short and the scares themselves could use some work but overall good idea and great visuals would love to see a full game made by this developer if you want to see the video i made on this game here it is (spoiler warning)

and if you enjoyed the video be sure to share it with someone i really appreciate it and it helps a lot 

Thanks for the feedback and I agree. This was made in 4 days for a game jam--so I hope my next project will be a little more polished.

Really cool game! I enjoyed the inception like gameplay. I will link my gameplay below if you are interested in seeing my reaction.

Yeah thanks for playing, I did watch your playthrough, ha.

I had an AWESOME time playing this game! Great game! Really got me in the end lol. Be sure to subscribe!

Thanks so much, enjoyed your playthrough! 

Thank you for the game!

Loved this! Killer build up and that scare got me so bad. Can't wait to see your next project!


Thanks, enjoyed your playthrough! I'm working on another horror game now! I'm hoping it'll be a little more polished.

Second game I played. That last scare really got me good.

Ha thanks!

Was a pretty fun small horror game! Only wished that there was more that happened with the arcade game itself, but was still a pretty fun game. For some reason the message pings were super scary...

Thanks--I agree. This was for a game jam and I had so many plans, but ultimately time got the best of me. That said, as I mentioned in another reply, I made the arcade game itself kind of boring to encourage players to leave, but you're right, maybe it could have had some other kind of effect on the world.

This is a great small game you got here.

Thanks, glad you enjoyed even though it's short!

good game


Lovely little game!

Thanks for playing!

That highscore got beat! So did my nerves though.. Very good Justin. Hat to you 

Here's my game playthrough for all; Enjoy!

Thanks! Ha I loved your reaction--awesome shirt btw.

I’m glad you enjoyed; both shirt and  reaction 😄.
