BEFORE BUYING: This is a short horror experience designed to make players jump. Think of it as a scare simulator. Don’t expect a storyline; just one primary challenge: DON’T SCREAM. It’s simple enough for anyone, even your mom. Seriously, challenge your mom to play!
If you scream, you restart. DON’T SCREAM is an Unreal Engine 5 short horror experience inspired by ’90s camcorder found footage. Made by two indie devs. The challenge is simple: explore the mysterious Pineview Forest for 18 minutes without screaming.
Sounds easy, right? But there’s a catch. Time only progresses as you move, and you cannot predict the scares. You must calibrate your microphone in-game so that every whimper, jump, or even a minor squeak is registered as a scream, increasing the challenge. With dozens of dynamic scares, each playthrough offers a unique experience.
It’s the perfect game to scare the pants off your friends and family. Our lead playtester (also my wife) is currently in a clinic recovering.
MICROPHONE REQUIRED TO PLAY
DON’T SCREAM challenges not just your nerves but your voice control. Here’s what to expect:
1. Calibrate Your Microphone:
Set it up in-game. It’s not just tech setup; it defines your challenge. A mere squeak or quiet gasp should be flagged as a scream, causing you to restart.
2. Mind Your Voice:
You can talk during gameplay, but keep it low – slightly softer than normal. Too loud and it’s game over.
3. Play Fair:
You could bypass calibration to shout through scares, but it’d spoil the thrill. For a genuine horror experience play as designed.
