A downloadable game for Windows

Mind Games is a first-person psychological horror game with a dark theme, and a hopefully surprising twist.

The main character, Robert, and his family have been planning a trip to a secluded cabin for some time. Looking forward to it, that peacefulness of nature, they start the long drive to their weekend away, unaware of what is about to unfold.

Robert wakes up disoriented in an underground bunker. The last thing he remembers is driving, heading to the cabin, but he doesn’t recognise this place. He hears a scream and quickly realises it’s his wife Anna.

He realises he must find Anna, and his two children, Josh and Sarah. This is far from the trip he was expecting. Someone has kidnapped his family and locked them down in this bunker.

You must find out why they are there, who put them there, and how to save Anna, Josh, and Sarah and escape the bunker alive.

i must admit, this was very hard! but fun! so happy i could save them all :D took me a while haha! great job on making this game! :D 

Thanks for playing! We loved the video! There are clues throughout the game that indicate the order the numbers should be entered into the keypad, but we admire your determination at spending half an hour trying the numbers at random! :-)


This was a fun game! I managed to be awful but it was still very entertaining!

Thanks for playing! Love the video. It is possible to save them though :-)


This was pretty cool and I enjoyed it even though I did horribly and ran into a few technical issues. The biggest problem is that the text kept going off the sides of the screen. Played with resolution and it made no difference.

Aside from that I think I was just being really dumb and not seeing how things were working at first. :)


Thanks for playing! It seems there is a problem with the text when not playing in 1080p. I hope it didn't ruin the experience too much! :-)


I managed to save everyone... Eventually.  This is a pretty good prototype.  It felt like I was playing a game from the SAW movies.  I found it pretty fun.  


Thanks for playing! We love your video! We are impressed you managed to save Josh first time - think you're the first! We are massive Saw fans so were definitely inspired by it :-)


Nice game! Keep it up ;)

Thanks for playing! Can't believe you managed to guess the code for the keypad without working it out from the clues! :-)

I'm as surprised as anyone else :P Thank you so much for making this!


i found the numbers in the room for the code but for some reason they didnt work? :D

Thanks for playing! There's a particular order the numbers need to be entered into the keypad - there's some clues throughout the game that should indicate the order they go in :-)

I put the numbers in order I double checked but I guess I was still wrong? XD

You didn’t enter them in the correct order ;-)

lol i even tried all the numbers in different ways and it still didnt work :P

You tried them in different ways, but not the correct way ;-) In your video you got the numbers correct, but you never entered them in the correct order. Look at your surroundings for clues as to what order you need to enter the numbers, however the numbers change every time you play :-)


Not bad for a prototype, I agree, the text should stay on for longer. And maybe a few more diary pages? :)


Thanks for playing our game! We love your video and your theories, although we neither confirm nor deny whether they're right :-)

I'm glad you like the video, and that's okey, I can wait to find out the truth in a full game. ;)


An interesting style of game. The text goes by at a very fast pace making it hard to take everything in. I also had the problem of trying to read the instructions at the exact same time as you have to solve the puzzle, making it nearly impossible on the first try for some puzzles.

Thanks for playing our game, and thanks for the feedback! We really appreciate all the feedback we can get. The video is great!
