A downloadable game for Windows
Welcome to Bleakshore
The haunting wilderness awaits you.
The ocean washes the silver sands.
Orla is here somewhere.
The marram grass blows gently in the wind.
Over the salt marshes ravenous gulls cry.
Where is Orla?
The pines tower overhead,
Their dead needles carpet the ground.
An object dear to you rests there.
Dusty paths maintained by the feet of summer,
Hidden now in thick unmoving fog.
You hope she's okay.

This was a very good horror game, it felt distant and isolated while being pursued by a mysterious stalker and a spine chilling noise. Great game!
Interesting concept. Love it!
Nice aesthetic but boring plot and meaningless ending.

the ending is so unexpected lol!, But good game!
Does it just have one ending?
Yes this is a linear narrative told through non-linear exploration.
Great atmosphere for sure! Didn't expect eldritch horror to show up ;P
Amazing atmosphere and exploration. Also a good story and ending :)
if i goota be honest I didnt really liked the game for a multitude of reasons
firstly i played it for over an hour and still wasnt finished because i didnt followed the right way because i couldnt really see where the way was going (i also felt kinda lost)
i also restarted once after 10 minutes because i wanted to make the game not as loud and thought there might be a options menu when i press the esc key (yes its my fault that i didnt read the controlls but still)
so eventually i looked at some gameplay of it however i allready quit the game so i didnt played it more (the ending however was suprising)
the texts and overall the gameplay were slow so i needed to sit there for another minute to read the same text again and after a while it felt somewhat repetetive and bare bones since there wasnt as much happening
even tho the music and sound was scary itdidnt really like it since it was so high pitched i felt
two other things i noticed since i saw the youtube video were that i noticed that the trees were swaped out for some black monster for me they just disapered and that some part of the screen were cut of for me
still not going to hate the game as much since it was pretty neat and it was made for the hounted ps1 weekend and for that it was pretty fiting
also i could have never done such a game so good joob and sorry if that sounded to hatefull
Wonderful game. It was eerie and atmospheric, with a unexpected ending. Good work.
Came in expecting horror, but what I got was heartfelt and lovely. Delightful.
Just uploaded this game on my channel. Really enjoyed it. Beautiful scenery and eerie feel..I definatly recommend trying this out...Heres my video if you want to check it out. (Copied your page link in my description)
Really creepy visuals and the sound design tied it all together nicely. The end was really surprising as well. Nice to play a horror game that doesn't end with a tragedy :)
Love the aesthetic. The games is awesome!
Played the game on my channel! I thought the visuals looked really cool and eerie!
Really creepy atmosphere and music. Great work!
Such a relaxing and eerie feeling. I loved it!
I will be playing this live 6/6 around 630 EST. =).
Amazing vibe made a gameplay on it
Lol thanks to that eejit I'm gonna check this out now ;)
Is there any way to get a soundtrack?
I really like that, it has a huge atmosphere. There are not any jumpscares but that doesnt matter. I think its very cool game to play.I recommend it.
Hmmm.... It doesn't seem to be a YouTube link, typing it in while playing doesn't seem to do anything, and I don't see any files that need a key in the zip. Do you have any further clues for what to do with the bridge code?
Well done on finding this, can't really help you but the plans we had around this are dead so I wouldn't worry about it too much.
Sounds good, haha.
it was fun I like the trans representation 7/10
Comments below clip;I have a deep rooted affinity for beaches and the oceans, so this game was and emotional ticker tape parade, down memory lane. I know, weird, coz this is supposed to be a horror game. At first, I wasn't sure what to do, so I just followed my gut-instinct and went straight ahead. Thus, I might have missed certain elements, but that's all there for you to explore. Immerse yourself into an unknown world, and see where it takes you to. I had a great time playing it. I hope you will too.
Didn't run int any bugs or any other hiccups. Kudos to all involved!
Neat concept but it felt pretty bare bones since nothing much was happening at all, but still for what it was, it wasn't too bad, good work :)
Pretty spooky atmosphere, I enjoyed it. The entire time, the island has a sinister feeling, but everything ends up being ok.
The game was overall ok. Not bad. I believe that one of its main message is about how we may feel an unnerving sensation when things don't seem right and bizarre occurrences take place, however it may all just be much less sinister and more simpler than it looks. I do feel the game could have used other forms of danger to amp up the tension in the game like animals etc though for its size and probably what the creator wanted this may not be required, because personally the stalker in the game didnt feel justified because it disappears in an inhuman manner which could however be created to have different intepretations of the ending. Graphics wise it emulates old games, does the job. Apart from that keep up the good work devs and i wish you best of luck in more games you'll create in the future!
Will you release a Mac build?
Unfortunately I don't have any Mac systems to test on and have had bad experience in the past with UI and textures being blurry or hard to read on untested builds. Maybe if I ever get a Mac I can revisit and make a proper build.
i love the overall ambience of this game, and the music is awesome. good story, definitely recommend
awesome ending, atmosphere, and sound design.
dassa two thumbs up from me
