ABOUT:

This is a very short horror game based on the Forest Stairs conspiracy theory. 

You're out for a walk in the woods when you see a random staircase that leads to nowhere. The stairs look as if they're meant to be part of some structure, they look out of place.

Will you stand on top of them? How long are you willing to?

Tip: Wait on top of the staircase.

Don't forget to give a rating to show your thoughts!

ALSO:

I'm working on a much larger horror game at the moment called Bodhi 'n' Friends - so if you're into a more longer and more story-driven experience, go check out the demo for Bodhi 'n' Friends:


I've also just recently made a short, fan-made Minecraft horror game based on Music Disc 11 - so if you wanna play another short game of mine, try it out:

Who's goofy ass built haunted stairs in the middle of the woods?!

Haha thanks for playing!

Awesome short horror game! Thanks for the experience!

The game seems pointless at first and it takes a bit of luck to understand the game. But it's interesting when something happens. Nice!

I can certainly say I got spooked, though I somehow managed to predict the "getting pushed off the stairs" moment, hah

It just looks like a personal test project.

Lazy texture work, criminal sound design, most sickness inducing first person camera I ever played, cheap horror gimmicks, inexistent monster design, game design so bad that even if the game is very short, people still need help to trigger the only event.

The only good feedback I can give is that the game is complete and playable.

Walked up the stairs like 5 times then quit lol, didn't know something actually happens.

Really good game! Love the use of environment and I stayed invested throughout the whole game! Especially at night time! 

Thanks for playing! :)

Didnt really get it. The second game i played in video

[Game 1] I Tried Playing This Game A Few Times Before And I Could Never Find Out How To Beat It Till I Looked At The Desc Lol But The Game Was Great! And I Love The Story Behind It You Really Had The Atmospheric Horror Part Down!

The png was loud, very good sir!

Thanks for playing!

Game starts out @ 02:18 .

Kind of wish there's was an indicator to stand on the stairs to be honest. Had to look it up on the page to find out I needed to stand on the stairs.

It was short and simple which I like, and I honestly jumped the first time I played the ending.  This is just a pet peeve of mine, but I wish there was some sort of end credit screen or it ends by jumping back to the menu screen; I don't like having to go back and reload the game when it just ends.

Really good game! Love the use of environment and I stayed invested throughout the whole game! Especially at night time!

The player movement was very slow and I literally didn't know what to do at first but the jumpscare did get me ngl. Good short game

Here's my gameplay of it (11:37)

I had no idea this was a thing hahaha. Great short horror game!

Thanks for playing!

Transformamos cinco minutos de jogo em trinta kkkkkk

I love the concept for this game and the way you built up the suspense definitely a winner in my opinion! Much love and thanks for making this

This game is so small yet so strange - who is the man in black? Who was killed there? Is  there lore? It remains a mystery...

honestly got me really good towards the end, this was a great concept and I hope you expand on this and make it into another experience! 

(+1)

Hey, thanks for playing! I may make an extended version in the future, we'll see ;)

Gave me a lot of jumpscares! I didnt want to finish the game due to how scared I was but I decided to finish it and I'm glad I did, really nice game :D

Glad you liked it!

Gave the game a spin. It's not really that good, sadly.
Character movement is WAY too slow, monster design is lacking, and the artstyle feels... out of place, in  a bad way.
There was a LOT of potential here, especially given what the source material is. Shame it wasn't used to its fullest.

(+1)

It feels like a lucid dream when you play this game. Nice short horror game, though.

(+1)

this game is so good, at first i thought itd be a jump and done but i could barely finish it due to the good sound design and suspense! 10/10 dude!

(+1)

This was a great little game! 

Nice

thank for this game !

Hey! Just like Music Disc 11, I included this game of yours aswell in my latest Itch.io Horror Games video! Hope you make something longer soon because I'm enjoying the ideas you got! Again, hope you enjoy the video if you decide to check it out! Cheers!

surprisingly it got me and soon as I seen it I just automatically started roasting it because it came out of no where 💀😂 but I loved this for it to be a short horror it earned a spot in my series keep up the good work I played your game first
