A downloadable game for Windows

Welcome to my second solo project: a short story about a couple.

Now walk home...

(The game is free, but if you want to support you can donate, i will be making more games so it wont be for nothing.)

In this game you simply walk home after a visit to your significant other was cut short, with a feeling that something is off...

This is an exploration-based game where your detective skills will be rewarded.

The game is short but has multiple endings depending on what you do, which changes the course of the story.

CONTROLS:

ESC to pause

WASD to move

!GAMEPAD RECOMMENDED!


GENERAL GAME INFO:

The game was made in Unreal engine 4. 

my main idea for the art style was to try and only use images that i have taken as textures, to try and replicate the uncanny look of early games which used photoscans while still keeping it low poly. 

The main goal was to make a real atmosphere that captures the feeling of walking home alone after dark...

MUSIC:

there are 11 songs in this game, 10 short ones that acts as the phone's music library, and the games main theme.

The game theme and 7 of the phone songs are made by me.

The 3 others are made by close friends of mine, Thanks for the help!


THANKS FOR ALL THE LOVE AND SUPPORT:

feedback is always welcome, tell me why you love or hate the game so i can apply the critique to my next game

We enjoyed the atmosphere of this game and it was certainly creepy trying to figure out what was going on, however I would say it was a tiny bit cryptic on how to get all 3 endings. (Admittedly, one of the endings was more straight forward than I thought, so our bad, but please explain how to get Ending 3 because we are very curious!) Cool music :)

glad you guys enjoyed! i dont know how to mark this as spoilers so ill just do this

::SPOILERS::

to get ending 3 you have to look behind you when the twig snaps when walking up the ramp, then go to the car after watching the person behind the car, then right before you walk into the house, you will hear an audio queue saying "behind you"
look behind you.


thank you people again for playing, much apprechiated

The game is really interesting and the mystery behind what is happening just by walking home alone from your friends place is really questionable sometimes lol 

Loved the game it had a very creepy vibe but felt familiar for some reason.

I made a compilation video and this one is the 1st game I played.

Really interesting, I liked having more than one outcome. Couldn't get them all but defeat me to play through it more than once. Walk home is game number 2 in this 3 scary games video.


Super fun game, I enjoyed trying to find the different endings (even though I may not have gotten them all). Hope to see more from you dev!

This was a really cool concept. just an outright enjoyable game. awesome job dev!

Thank you a lot! and thank you for the video and sharing it! it was very enjoyable

I liked this, it had a spooky atmosphere and a lot of mystery. I enjoyed being able to explore the area and find clues. Taking photos with my phone for light seemed odd (why not use the flashlight?) but it was extremely effective, especially when other images flashed on the camera briefly. Ending 1/3 confused me a bit, and I wasn't able to get 3/3.

thank you for the video and the comment! it was very enjoyable!

I like it =D. first game in video.

good game

I just want one thing to make this game to unimaginable levels.. just the ost as a seperate file to download it's that genuinely good.

It's incredible how you managed to put so much content into such a small game! It's great!

This was an interesting game, a little confusing but I liked it. Though if I had to change something it'd be the size of the text on the phone. I had to get right up to the monitor to see what the messages said.

This game is like the one thing everyone dreads... someone following you and creeping you out the whole walk recommend it!

que jogão , espero que ele jogue mais jogos assim
(1 edit)

can you make it be played on chromebook plz

(+3)

please, please drop the file of the "you're selfish" song, ive tried everything to get it but i can't and i really want that song!

I enjoyed this game very much keep up the good work Can't wait for the other games you make 😁

Awesome game! scary and neat xdd

very good game I enjoyed it. I gotta say I screamed a little bit

This was a great atomsphere,I can definately see what you is ment by explore to see everything. One question why so many scooters! they are everywhere!! but great game  keep it up.

thank you so much for the kind words, and for the scooter question, here in norway we have rental scooters that you unlock with an app and get a fee for the amount of minutes you have used it. These are everywhere in populated areas, and i wanted to use it as an effect to make it feel empty in a populated area.

Pinche JUEGAZO!!!, sin duda el final 3/3 fue el que mas me impacto. RECOMENDADIZIMO!!!

This is really cool, well done. It's got a lot more to it than I expected. I especially like the soundtrack - I hope you make it available for download some day. Thanks for sharing your game! <3

i walk home but i found this

AWW!! I saw what the 3rd ending was I was so close to it!! OH WELL!! No big deal I got 2 endings 🤭😁👍

Only managed 2/3 endings, but enjoyed the 2 I managed to reveal! 

ALL THREE ENDINGS!!

NEXT TIME IMA JUST WALK HOME WITH A BAT LMAO THANKS FOR THE SPOOPY GAME

Fantastic little project. Lots of nice details great atmosphere. The multiple endings keep you guessing too. Good Job 

I really liked this game! It took me much longer than it probably should've for me to find all three endings but I was determined not to google them and to find it out on my own. Once I had finished the game I realized how intrigued I was by the story and the atmosphere that you created. I'm really looking forward to your next game! I hope it expands upon this game and builds a more in-depth and larger storyline! But I do have one question, what's the name of that song "You're selfish, and there's nothing I can do to convince you..." I was playing through the playlist a lot during the later parts of my playthrough and that song got stuck in my head ahahahah, thanks for making an awesome game.

Cheers

thank you so much for the nice comment!

The song you are talking about is called “You’re selfish” 

Its a song i made and sung a while back, but never released, might release it sometime i guess??

Please do! It's a really great song and I'd love to add it to my playlist as soon as possible! Do you have lots of unreleased music? 

Sorry to jump in here but I agree with baphometofhell: Please release the song!!! Additionally, there was a rock-type instrumental song on the playlist that I really enjoyed. Hoping you'll consider releasing it too!!!

Awesome game man. Really well done, and all the secrets and stuff is top notch. I found it because of Markiplier, he just played it in 3 Scary games #76. I know the area is kinda small, but I really appreciated how open this game is, compared to other indie horror games. Good job dude. 

Really enjoyed this one. Didn't find everything and struggled to find all the endings, but I thought it was good! Great work. 

I really liked this game. I think it had a great atmosphere and its scares were never cheesy (a trap many other horror games fall into sometimes). I especially liked the subtle ways you messed with the phone like the camera or the creepy music/recordings.

Honestly, the main reason I'm writing a comment, though, is that I've watched Mark and some others play this game and it really frustrated me that no one bothered to look for the other endings (Mark kind of did, but he didn't really put much thought behind it).

My guess is that if I found this frustrating then it must've probably been even worse for the developer to see so many people experience only a third of their game.

So I just want to say that I didn't find it confusing. I got Ending 3 first because I looked around everywhere, then I ignored everything and got Ending 1 and for Ending 2 I did a bit of both.

I also noticed that I've played your other game as well and I remember liking it quite a lot, too. You seem to put a lot of work into your games. They're both very different from each other stylistically but still unique, of high quality and full of little details (I assume the graffiti in the building is a nod to the first game?).

I'll definitely be looking forward to what you do next. :]

first of all, i heard that he had played the game through you, that was very hype. Second of all, thank you so much for that sweet nice comment, it really means a lot that you have found both my projects enjoyable. And yes its always a bit disheartening to see people not play the game for its full content, seeing how short the walk is, but i cant ask for more as it comes down to taste and patience. And yes that graffiti was a nudge lmao. Thank you again for such a heartwarming comment

Definitely intrigued about the other endings! Super creepy and well done!

good game you have alot of mech I would have liked a longer walk home the subtle jump scares work excellent

watch here

I enjoyed this game!


this was really fun, was not expecting it to get super dark like that. keep up the great work familia!

baci oko na video,baci like i razvali subscribe,hvala unaprijed ljudio PS. Nadam se da vam se svida video

Drop an eye on gameplay hit that like and sub
hope you like the video and yeah developers good game aswell! 

This was super fun. There are so many games where the primary function is to just explore the area, so I love the creativity you took by adding the element of the phone and the snapping of photos. Even when I was lost, snapping photos and messing with the different phone functions kept me engaged. And the way you played with the lighting (contrasting the dark with the phone flash) in certain areas certainly made for a good jumpscare. Overall, my biggest note if I had to give feedback is that I felt a little as if I had no indication of where I should go and what I should explore, but the area was small enough that, were I to go back and play it again, I'm sure I could have figured out the way to the other endings. Other than that, you created a neat little "world" in this back alley, and it was a fun time. Thanks again for the experience. Please continue to create and looking forward to your future projects!

Thank you so much for playing the game, and a huge thank you for leaving some constructive feedback! it really helps on my journey of making better games! the video is great so keep up your good work too!

Really enjoyed the atmosphere and songs in the game! I would love to see you update and improve this further. Would definitely pay for a more polished version with a fleshed-out plot.

 

thank you so much for playing and the video, as much as it would be fun to polish it and make it look as good as it possibly can, I wanna take this experience further and create even better newer games in the future, thank you for the video and comment! keep up your great wor

The game is really simple but i had fun with it (played last)
