In a world without hope were almost everything has vanished into darkness one man struggles for survival.

This is a Survival Horror/Psychological Game were you take the role as old Sam, trying to survive the harsh winter lands. The goal of the game is to simply survive the world's end.

The game features a dynamic event system that, based on the time of day, will trigger different events. Trying to aim for a new experience for each play-through with up to three different endings

Movement - Arrow Keys
Z - Use/Interaction
X - ToggleMenu/Cancel Sleep

NOTE: There are no mouse inputs in this game, only keyboard.

Instructions also follows in game with a tutorial cinematic. Please follow it as it helps a lot. The game will autosave for each new day.

As mentioned there are 3 different endings (Good, Neutral & Bad), depending on how you play the game will result in one outcome. To get an ending you must have received a knock on your door where you are prompted to open it at least 3 times.

I hope to make more games of this sort so if you like it (or don't) please leave a review for feedback and whatnot.

If you encounter strange bugs try updating your Flash Player, usually a lot can be fixed just by doing that.

Good Luck!

VERY atmospheric game, so hopeless, so imbued with loneliness, so despair, 10/10

don't care about bugs and hardness, I just wanna know WHAT is behind that inaccessible area above the lake, maybe someone survived.

thank you for that unforgettable experience

Wow! Aside from the glitches and bugs (my first playthrough nothing weird happened so I assumed I had to survive for as long as possible but then I reset and the story worked properly!)
It's a really good concept- the world is slowly dying. Being consumed by the darkness and truly the 'unknown'.
I know you're apparently doing a sequel? That'd be awesome. The game should definitely be longer. It wasn't enough for me! I'd like to know more about Sam and his family and his past; so when the Darkness began, how Sam and his family coped etc.
4 stars for you! 1 star taken away because of the glitches :(
