Woah, the creature is really disturbing, loved it

(+1)

it would be cool if the end cutscene was longer with the guard having to get in the car and the siren head catching him

(-1)

That was a fun little short!

Just played this game and I will say that it was fun 

(-3)

Loved how it was short and to the point. Perfectly timed and the reveal of the monster was startling. Very Silent Hill-esque while being it's own thing. Thanks!

This was fun, please make it longer! The monster actually scared me, but no joke. Please make it longer

I would love to see more of this game! The monster is so unique!

I really couldn't stop thinking about Paratopic while playing this. For a short little experience it was executed well. I think a series of these mini-vignettes would make for a pretty cool project. Here's a little bit of my time with it.

This game had such a creepy atmosphere that it got me more than the actual monster did. i don't know if there was a way to out run the monster but it was good all the same.

I loved the expirience, thank you veery much. I would like to know how do you get these visual effects in the textures with Unity3D

Cool scare

Hi!  this game was short but really good, some advices:

1# the monster should be more faster than the player (the player easily can scape from the monster)

2# add more difficulty to escape from the monster (for example, when you got out from the car you accidentally throw down the car's keys and you need to find it before scape)

Not really a big fan of horror, but this game was absolutely fun to play even for its size!

this is the start of something really cool! Even though it's short, it sets up the premise of a unique horror experience! I would love to see this flushed out to a longer game!

This was great! We enjoyed it very much!

Here is a short video we made while playing:

please make a chrome OS version of the game. Pleas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I hope my thumbnail says it all. This creation is terrifying and I loved it!

Your  game  starts  at  11:40

Well now, that's me traumatised and put off from hiking for quite a while! A very unique little experience featuring a truly unique monster (I think you did a cracking job bringing Trevor's creation to life!).

Sometimes games don't need a whole lot of background story or hours and hours of gameplay. Sometimes all you need is five minutes to chill someone to the bone. And this is a great example of that! Keep up the great work, this was cracking =)

Excuse me! I must ask "HOW?" since I cant even think that a game like this could scare somebody so hard that they decided to "put off from hiking for quite a while". how does this game scare you! I realy whana know since this game dosent scare me! im not someone who cant get scared easaly, when there is a spooky game and I get scared I usualy do the good ol' "ALT+F4".   this game did have a good build up but the pay off wasent that scary (Personaly I think an Air-Raid Siren would've worked better). and that isnt only me I made my friends play the game and all of them sayd "this game isnt scary" one of them even bursted into laughter when he saw the spooky creature. PLEASE I BEG YOU, COULD YOU TELL ME WHY DO YOU FEEL THE GAME IS SCARY!?

Purely the atmosphere and the build-up. All about the scene-setting! Different strokes for different folks (and the being put off hiking line was not as serious as you may have taken it).

Made a video

This was really good. I wish there was more! I could see it being such a creepy game. Great work :D

Really interesting game! Loved everything about the creature from the sound effects to the visual effects when it got close!

It was certainly different, nice creature. 

Pretty cool.  While short it was quite unique. I like the design of the monster, but the terrain could use some work.

Interesting and well done if a bit short.

Hi! Thanks for making this game, I made you a video

DID YOU HEAR THAT?! | Siren Head Full Gameplay Walkthrough

Court et efficacement glauque!

I love how this  actually looks like a psx game.  Too many indies just make a game and add a bunch of retro filters on top.

Controls are very suited for story telling.

Would love to see more!

I would LOVE to see a longer version someday :D

Very short but very likeable >.<

So cool to see such a potential for a PS1 horror game. Good sound, good horror feeling, awesome monster. 

Nice to see a team up for a jam. Trevor's monster design is interesting and can fit in a Silent Hill game.  A monster in a form of one of your darkest inner secrets. 

I would like to see a longer game like this in the future. This was something different. 

Who would even camp here?

"We enjoyed our hike through the scenic Pine Ridge Hiking Trail, so many wonderful things to see and run from. We can't wait to come back with the whole family next time."

XOXO - C.P.

 

I loved it! But you should make it more clear that you have to zoom on the hikers... Remains? But Siren Head was horrifying! I loved it.

It was short and simple, I liked it tho wish there was a bit more to the game, it was only two minutes long. 

It was the first one I played
