Can You Survive the Terrors of This Deadly Escape Room?

(+2)

Loads of potential here, as soon as the heartbeats, whispers and flickering lights began I was just in full panic mode. And of course, because of that I completely failed at spotting the second dice in the showers. I also didn't see two of the numbers in the tapes to use in the keypad, but I don't know if it's because I was panicking or they were just hard to see. Either way, I love the idea of an escape room horror, it works really well.

(+2)

Great Game!
(+3)

good game, but I felt like something was missing, the detail of the recorded tapes is really great

(+2)

This is definitely a game that's on the right track. Super unique using the real footage inside the game. The atmosphere is insanely creepy the whole time, but could use a few more scares here and there! Overall a fun experience

!

The game looks good, the puzzles are nice!

The code for the old chest does not work! And the FPS drops a lot in certain places.

(1 edit) (+2)

I'm glad you like it! The code works, you just didn't figure out the correct one.

(+2)

Is the code related to the dice? Because I entered that and with the correct order using a note in the old drawer!

(+2)

Yes it is, but there is a trick with them. Table, Showers, Counter. I would suggest you search for the dice more carefully.

Can You Survive the Terrors of This Deadly Escape Room?

thank you for sharing this game with us. I like how your having to discover objects to work your way to the next. Some of the puzzles a bit difficult but then again im rubbish at working out stuff. huge achievement me getting through this. well done game devs :)

(+1)(-1)

Thank you very much and good job on beating the game :D!

Thank you

(+2)

I loved the "found footage" aspect of the game.  The real-world video was a really cool touch.  I really wish there was more to do in the game itself - the puzzles weren't too tricky and I honestly didn't understand the ending at all.  That said, it was a fun game still.  Worth checking out, and there are no real jump scares.

(+2)

If this game was real, then I would just keep sleeping... It would be funny if there was an ending with a similar plot x)

(+1)

Awesome psychological horror game.

(+1)

I'm happy you enjoyed it :D

It was very challenging TBH. At least for me lol

(+2)

EPIC PUZZLES AND GAME !!!!! amazinngg : D 

(+1)

Glad you like it :D

(+2)

so COOL!!!!

(+1)

Thank you :3 glad you liked it!

Can u explain what is in this game ?

(1 edit)

You wake up with a sound of knocking in a old hotel and find a tape in front of your room door. Suddenly the phone starts ringing and a voice tells you that he will se you in 3 am. With a ticking clock that rings every hour till 3am you need to find tapes and eerie paintings to get out before it's to late. The tapes hold the key on what happened before, what is happening now and how to escape.

(+2)

The real life footage was AWESOME! The on the clock keeps you always hurrying!

(+2)

I enjoyed the game but there were a few things that need to be worked on. You nailed the atmosphere for an escape room, and I liked the idea of using the tapes to figure out the puzzles, but the code for the padlock made no sense to me. It was still an enjoyable experience and I look forward to your next game!

(+2)

I'm glad you enjoyed the game!

(+2)

Thanks for recommending me your game to play! ^_^

Thank you! I got answer from your video:)

No problem!  ^_^

(+1)

this game was so much fun! Thank you 
(+2)(-1)

the VHS tapes are very cool, but the game is not scary at all

(1 edit) (+3)

I highly doubt that's the intention for the game - to be scared. Once you play more games you will understand that it is not about "just" getting scared. Horror is a big genre, it includes scary elements, sure, but it's not a necessity to have the game scare you. Sometimes it makes you uncomfortable or distressed or anxious, even angry at times. There are many variations of horror and I would suggest playing ones, which have cheap jump scares and definitely dodge the atmospheric ones, because you clearly just want to be scared.
Good day. 
Edit: FNAF is one I recommend - cheap and scary.

was Pretty Fun But there was a lot of information that meant absolutely nothing and that was really annoying and confusing, but it was fun otherwise

(1 edit) (+2)

Thanks for the feedback! Glad you had fun playing it.

(+2)

Compared to Dollhouse, this was a HUGE improvement. i can tell this game was made with love and the real life footage was VERY well done. generous timer as well ! Nice ! 

Thank you for reaching out to me to play and here is my playthrough if you're interested :)

Deadly Escape Room: Survive the Terrors by 3AM! Can You Do It? | The Tape | Indie Horror Game

(+2)

Pretty difficult but not impossible, could be scarier but it was fun to finally figure it out!

(+2)

I had fun with this one, was sold to play once I saw the creepy found footage abandoned building looking video!

Had some creepy moments to it! Enjoyed how things started to increase as you played due to the time, from nothing to creepy whispers.

I liked the tapes! I'm a sucker for found footage and abandoned building exploration tapes!

Had trouble using the VCR and got murrrderrred because the character was too concerned with rewinding the tapes vs being alive but thats fine!

The puzzles where interesting, not too hard and enough to keep you busy as it draws closer to 3am.

Still want to know about the ritual circle and why I cannot just help them! Even offered to set up a surprise party for them!

Was there anything to the radio or was it just for the chills?

In the end! Had an enjoyable time!

Good Job Alex X!

I'm glad you enjoyed it! Actually the radio is just for the chills, the whispers are put there to foreshadow that they will come to you later in the game.

haha okay! I was wondering about that radio!
As soon as I turned it on, nope'd out of that and figured I would wait until later if needed! Thought about doing a bit of just listening to it for a while and seeing if anything would come up or a event would happen but forgot too!
Got to say again! Loved the live action abandoned videos! When they are under the "creepy" genre, its always a draw! 

(+1)

The videos were AWESOME. Honestly had chills watching them as the timer counted down.
