Just saw you put out your full game and i can't wait to play it. made a video on the demo a little while back hope you enjoy

This is the second time I'm playing it and it is still awesome. 

So far so Great!

This game was totally awesome. Plan on playing the full version someday

I loved the art style of this game. Absolutely stunning. I love the soundtrack. One of my current favorites. I can not wait for the full version of this.

Enjoyed the game :)


 I finally finished it and I really found it fun I will definitely play the full version

Unbelievable graphics in this game!

(By the Way, the cursed forest is the third game I played in this video)

I still didn't finish it but I love it so far, very atmospheric, funny and the there was some scares here and there!

That was terrifying :O

Good game, didn't realise the full game was available on Steam, will have to grab it at some point.

This is actually the best horror game I have seen on this site in months. The atmosphere is well done and the gameplay is not bad.  However I do hope the full game will be much better than this. Have a great day

Tip: Basically just follow the paths and they will take you to the objectives.

Here is my profile if you're interested ; https://roachroast.itch.io/

This game is a very atmospheric horror experience. It's visually stunning, the sound is utilized in great ways, and the few jumps I experienced were subtle and not annoying like a lot of games tend to include. I had a lot of fun and look forward to the full release! Here's my playthrough of it:

I really liked this game! Very atmosphere, I'm not sure were those mythology things included some stories felt like it! 

This game shows you don't need to bring bloody corpses in your face to get scared. 

Waiting for full releasing! 


really liked the game very fun and spooky also liked the art work at the start very good drawings. might pick up the full game!!


Saw this here, did not realise the full game was released on Steam. really impressed with the atmosphere

Very well done! This game is beautiful and the atmosphere is really creepy. Can't wait to play the full game! 


Played this for a random indie horror. I was really impressed with the level of quality this game provides. The story, the atmosphere, the movement, the gameplay, the scares. everything was pretty on point. I did experience some crashing and freezing which made it a little difficult to record at times, but overall i really enjoyed this demo and i'm considering picking up the full game for a playthrough. If you're interested, i give a full detailed review/feedback at the end of my video, which you can watch below! 

VERY well done! I immediately went to Steam and purchased. This got me immediately hooked. Keep it up!


Really creepy game. A lot of nice scares that weren't technically a jumpscare which is nice.

Really brilliant stuff here! I don't see cryengine on here very often and it was a real treat! The atmosphere was amazing, the sound design, level design. Just fantastic work. The writing impressed me as well, gave a lot of backstory to the world. MY only complaint is that the scares started to feel a little cheap at the end of the demo, but it wasn't a huge deal.

I remember playing this. Gonna try and get the full game at some point.

wow! Beautiful level design.

This game is so atmospheric.
