A downloadable game for Windows

ROT is short psychological horror game inspired by "Silent Hill" series.

You wake up in your car, sore in the middle of the forest. This place seems very familiar to you, but why?

You hear a familiar voice, but you do not know it. Who is she and what she wants from you?

Did you kill her?

You will be reminded of everything.

Who you are?

What you did?

Do you remember?


The key to understanding is not a literal interpretation of everything you experience.

Game based on short-film ROT by Corridor Digital.
Film originally directed by Adrian Picardi.
Starring Jordan Matlock.

I swear I didn't do anything! What's happening!

Really love the game so far!

Just like Silent Hill games, it's really messing with your mind, so as an inspiration, I think you did a great job!

I'm looking forward to what this game will bring in the future. I'll be following it :)

Just like some others, I decided to make a video on my experience. I was drunk though, please excuse me.. Feel free to have a look!

here's how i found out about this one

Visually beautiful game but the story was a little confusing at first. It was very well developed and can't wait to see more!

I loved it so far! I can't wait to play more from this dev, it was unsettling. It was simple yet very psychologically disturbing. Check out my gameplay vid!

how do i download?


i made a gameplay, pretty cool game! :D

Fantastic little game you got here!

Confusing, but really fun

Got to admit, this one was one cool game! 


yea can see why this is popular epic silent hill inspired short horror experience highly recommend also immense graphics

Really enjoyed it, the graphics were pretty solid but I wish it was a little longer because I felt it ended a bit abrupt.  

At the 24th or 25th random light change or bit of audio static, I was done.  You really think there aren't enough indie games like this already?

UMM hi .... ummmmmmmmm ;-; BYE! 


This game had a lot of production value, graphics and sound were great! That's all I can say though, the game didn't scare me and infact made me piss myself laughing at some sections. Just me though.

This was very scary for me because it was the first scary game I've played in a while. I love the graphics they were so good and I beat my first horror game so I'm stoked!!!

That was atmospheric. Spooky. Tense. Really like this. Also beautiful. Open ending is perfect. Also good choice of short-film for the base.


What an amazing game! You reallly got the P.T fell right. The atmosphere was spooky and confusing, leading to some cool jumpscares.  I actually made a video playing this amazing game with hilarious reactions. I hope you enjoy. I'm so excited for the full release on Steam.

This game gave me goosebumps from how scary it was. The silent Hill inspiration was so good. Cannot wait to see how your game is in 2019 

Confusing, startling, odd, just a couple words I'd use to describe what you've created here.

Good job, the Silent Hill inspiration really bleeds through.


I found this game fairly interesting. It let me create the backstory of the game just with what was happening at the moment. Keep it up and I'll definitely be watching the inspiration video.


I hope that there is a Part II ? The ending was quite abrupt and I learned nothing. The graphics were good, and the effects were also  good. However, the extremely bright lighting was a bit annoying.  Also, I felt like the effects were being used a little too much? That's my input. Overall, great job though!  

I was very confused at everything that was happening. I usually like to jump straight into games so I'm not expecting too much to leave an element of surprise, but part of me wishes I had more of the inspired "backstory" before I started it. I think this could be easily mistaken for a form of performance art, and I mean that in the best way possible. 

Loved the design of the woods, and the way the trees swayed. The creepy crawler was awesome looking and I liked how the story was laid out in pieces. Creepy and artistic.

This Game really freaked me out. Good job RG Crew. My skin crawled bad. 30 seconds is when i start the game. Feel free to skip. I had to thank my patreon supporter first. 

This was amazing (and makes me totally forgive you for TEHGE :P). Love the atmosphere, the graphics. If anything my only complaint is that the game ended! I'd love to see this expanded upon.

really like the game has a very interesting story and some great actors  also the graphics look amazing cant wait to see more!!

I've got to say for a free indie game, this game has a lot of polish! 

I'm not sure what happened with the story to be honest with you, but it was an interesting ride!

Keep up the great work!

Here's my play through for anyone interested:

This game is alot of fun. Great job dev

Ce jeu est plein de ressource je le conseille pour une expérience extrêmement vivante.

big pleasure to playing this game.

Cette expérience était grandiose!!! J’aurais du visualiser le court métrage avant sa m’aurait ouvert les yeux sur l’intrigue. Épatant :)

Awesome Game

Man this would make a great movie, everyone would be so confused they would tell people they got it so they seem smart. Also makes a great game!

7/10 Confusing, but still scary so I kinda like it c:
