A downloadable game for Windows

A demo of the opening sequence for my survival horror game It Returns.  Since it is the start of the game it is very scripted to set up the story. Full game will contain more combat, health and ammo management.

This is a early version, so a lot things will change or be improved upon.  

If your making a video of the game, dont worry about copyright claims on any of the music. I own all the rights. 

EDIT : So a lot has happend since the demo.  Made a short teaser of some things from the final game.

Thank you for the experience! Good luck with this project and the upcoming! I can't wait :) feel free to use my content

Thanks =) Nice video! Good thing you shot that evil wall!

It Returns has a lot of potential

Thanks! =) release is far away,  so hopefully it will turn out good

Such a cool game! The demo looks amazing and I really liked the story, you really have done an amazing job with the lighting as well. The eerie music sets the mood perfectly and overall this was a really enjoyable experience, maybe shouldn't use the word enjoyable though as I was very scared :D

I don't know if you've heard of Game Development World Championship before (gdwc2019) but it's a competition for indie game developers where they can submit their games and it's free! It's great if you want some more visibility for the game and it only takes a couple of minutes to join :)


hah=) full game will answer all those questions!

Hey I played your game in an indie romp I did. Only one complaint with the game being super dark though i'm likely just nitpicking because i'm a pansy thats scared of the dark. But I hope you enjoy the video :)

Your game starts at 11:20

its on my list of stuff to fix=) spoiler alert, you did win.. and he buried the corpse in soil made unholy.. regular horror stuff=)

I think It Returns has a lot of potential, especially considering where the story could go. When the demo came to an end, I wanted more. And that’s always a good thing. https://youtu.be/Y9d-QVE4C0s

nice to hear it!=) thanks!

This was great! It laid a nice foundation for what could become a great narrative based horror game!  My only gripe was with the combat, which I go into more detail at the end. The first 2 minutes or so of this video is a pointless intro, don't mind my stupidity lol. Here's my playthrough:

Hah, Nice! Have you tried death sauce? That shit is a real mouth destroyer.... thanks for the feedback! If the stamina drops to low the weapon cant be swinged,.   I have "fatigued" animation in mind so it becomes more obvious. =) 

SKIP TO 30:02!!!

hm, that crash was strange, sorry about that... will look into it! thanks for the playthrough, helps alot for the final game=)

Why must you make us John Wick? But seriously, the hunt or be hunted part of the game's fun. I just wish the 'girlfriend' would show up a bit more when you only have that knife and need to escape. It would make that sequence alot more tense.

Here's my channel for other games I have played. http://www.youtube.com/c/Levont

Haha! that question does not compute... =) ... this is a early version though,  put this demo out because i needed some feedback...  and yes, the premise has some secret window vibes!

Heres my take on it

Nice =) i liked that you didnt do a playthrough before the video. Gives me good understanding of what works or not.

The game is great atmosphere and graphics are awesome mechanics and movement are so clean and good story too so well done game rated 5/5  i hope you enjoy my gameplay :D 

Gphobia :

Thanks for your effort Dev, Nice game and I really Like the melee Battle at the end of the game :D Rated 5/5

thank you for taking the time to try it out!=)
