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.

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!

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.

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.

what is the game about?

its about,, a woman finding her lost girlfriend who just kinda disappeared to the place they held their anniversary i think

(+1)

It's so lovely and heartwarming! And that relief in the end! Great game!

I thought it was a horror game so little things in the beginning scared me. Here's my reaction! (Starts at 2:56). Overall, amazing!

A lovely little piece about everyday anxiety / insecurity. Using directional sound to draw you to the lighthouse was a great idea, and the ending fits the theme perfectly.

Great atmosphere, loved the old school design.

the atmosphere! I loved the sounds of the game, peaceful yet eerie, I felt like I was lost a few times but always ended up finding where to go, this is exactly what I was looking for when I searched for atmospheric horror!

😊👍

Unexpected! Good game!

Loved this game of yours! I'm so glad I included in one of my 3 Scary Games. It was not that scary but I really likes the atmosphere it gave off.

(+2)

I really recommend this game, amazing athmosphere and sound, and the story itself was also good and hit home which made it feel more special!!

(+3)

While playing this game I always felt lost yet somehow I knew where to go. It's weird to think that this whole game never really gives you a reason to worry, it's just in our nature...

its funny, i just commented the same thing about being lost but finding the way somehow!

(+1)

Never gives you a reasons? Never spotted that dark figure in the distance watching you?
