Silent House is a short PS1 style survival horror game.

You play as John Williams, the victim of a car accident. You wake your unconscious body and find yourself in a weird room that resembles a prison cell. You make eye contact with a strange man with a bloody knife that looks awfully similar to the psychopath that you saw in the newspaper. You must escape at all costs or die (not recommended).  

Controls:

  • WASD - MOVEMENT
  • E - INTERACT
  •  I - INVENTORY 
  • F3 - RETURN TO MENU                          
  • F3 - QUIT THE GAME WHILE IN MENU

Note: 

  • Headphones are recommended
  • The game was only playtested on Windows and Android if you run into any bugs or can't start the game. Contact me on discord.
  • If you get stuck on any puzzle you can find the walkthrough here.

4 Horror Game play

I loved this game. Got really scared right there. Come and check out my gameplay here:

Quick question: Can this run on 1gb Android devices?

I only tested this game on a redmi note 8 pro. I don't really know how it'll perform on other devices. You can set the resolution to a lower one like 640 X 360 if the game lags.

Thought your game was cool and wondering if I could try porting it to xbox one? i have a dev license on my account, so reply if I can try to. (microsoft account)

???

It's not worth porting a 10-minute horror game to a console. Plus the ending was designed to be played with a mouse and it also uses a text to speech library.

Kay, thanks for responding! I hope you have fun working on ur next game project.

SKIP TO 7:15!!!

Nice Game. But the game doesn't launch after completing it once. Is it a bug?

No it's not. Your computer probably is slow.

This was good! Took me a while to beat, but I managed to do it! Had a little trouble with the code puzzle at the end but I figured it out eventually. Here's my playthrough:

everytime i heard the chase movie... i had to pause to change my pants

I really enjoy ps1 style horror games. The AI was a bit buggy and I softlocked the game once. But it was a good experience.

Very creepy, very spooky. I had some issues with the puzzles and softlocked the game a few times.

That bloody knife is begging to be put to use haha I love the panic that sets in when I think I hear him near me or when the phone tells me he's close. I'm getting a 'Granny' vibe for the concept. I like that! It def sets up a challenge for the gamer, and not a game to be quickly beaten within 10 mins.

Great work!

I don't know why but i always enjoyed pixel and ps1 style horror games. So this one is really good too. But is it normal when i see shape? or outline of maniac through the walls? i also heared him but it was kinda strange

A bit of an identity crisis of a game, it needs to know what it is and isn't imo

I did it! I finished the game and the other part. The game itself is great! you hear the enemy, clues are everywhere and puzzles to solve. 

Spoilers beyond this point (more reviews)


Thank god the enemy doesn't chase me all the time when spotted. The area is small and no way to regain health if I get hit

I like that the only music / sound is with the enemy chasing me, it adds the thrill and scare

Not a big problem but the light from the lantern looks as if it's gone when I reach the basement area. The lantern lit up the 1st and 2nd floor but the basement is dark even with the lantern.

for the 2nd part of the game, I needed a translator and luckily got it right! I wish I read this page more, there's an actual walkthrough! I could have checked that when I got stuck in the virus part. But It's satisfying to solve it on my own (with the help of online translator)

Thanks so much for sharing!! I had a lot of fun and it was really good! Please continue to do what you do!

Hello! I enjoyed playing your game! although i haven't finished it yet...i will most likely return to beat this game in another video someday i always loveps1 type horror games and this was one of the good ones although there is a problem with using the pc in the basement is that once your in you can't exit out of it definitely should have that fixed! but other than that i really enjoyed this game and hope to see other great games you make! 

(+1)

Did you try typing 'sudo comp shutdown' while in the terminal. 

lol no sorry i should have try that tho i'm not used to using terminal type stuff but next time i'll definitely remember that so thank you!

Amazing game dev had so much fun playing it :) i  hope you enjoy my gameplay 

Developer when I lunch this game it was keep loading!! So i do not recommend anyone playing this game!! The game stuck in a loop

(1 edit)

Give the game a chance, perhaps the developer might be able to fix the issue.

Sure man, i would love to give it a chance man, the game looks good i wanted to play it.  Will see what happen!! looking forward to it!!

Did you press the spinning disc icon, that icon will take you to the main menu. I know it's bad ux design but I wanted it to look like a ps1 game.

Edit : I updated the game so now if the player doesn't press the icon withing 12 seconds the menu will load automatically.

This game was really fun! Made you a video: 

SO MAD ASSASSIN LOL

The key code for the front door can be found in the basement, there you will find a computer and entering the commands shown on the screen will reveal the code for the front door.

I checked the terminal when I press "e" on the computer the terminals codes doesn't work as well as I can't quite the terminal screen. Everytime I press Alt+F4 to quite the game.
