I made a short game about something that used to scare me as a child.

terrifying. omg.

so there's this other game i played once where you move to an old house in a small town you inherited. it was a long day driving there and picking up the key, youre alone till your spouse arrives and the sun is setting. it's a huge house and there's a lot to do, so you leave the packing boxes in the foyer and go upstairs, and get into bed. even though you're exhausted, you still toss and turn until you remember... you've forgotten to lock the door.

i quit the game after that because it stirred some kind of primal fear in me. this game reminded me of that. also, the possibly-real story of some robber in the neighborhood slipped under the garage door as it was closing and threatened the homeowner with a knife, who got scared off when the homeowner pressed the alarm key before they reached... when i was walking from car to front door i would check that the garage doors were closing all the way and nothing was sneaking under them. just a check. also that one time after i had a panic attack about driving somewhere, then went back downstairs and realized i had left the garage door open for about 2 hours.

my takeaway from this is that garage doors are a hotbed for horror.

Wait so is he supposed to get me at the end there?

holy fudge man that was freaking o man and you had this kind of phobia


whatever that noise was when he was using like a file or something that scared me shitless

it's meant to be the sound of someone scratching on the walls.  glad it worked!

didn't work in my browse

sorry to hear that. you could try the download standalone files and hopefully that works out better.

I included your cool game in one of my let's plays. Keep it going!

Thanks for checking it out and for including it in your video!

Awesome game, keep it up.

thank you, i will do my best!




Spider: ummm.....

Me: (in real life) YOU HAD TO DO ONE THING

really relatable, i still found it kind of creepy haha, it's the second game I played in this video.

Thank you! I'll be sure to check out the video when I get a chance later.

This gave me a fright, i was pretty scared when the creature came. Good job.

Thanks! Glad to share the fear :D

Wait a minute, so you said this was a thing that used to scare you as a child, and  fixing your broken garage door and you thought someone black and spider looking was gonna KILL YOU KILL YOU!? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ


you got it! it was a misunderstanding and the thing just wanted to be friends, so we're all good now.


You had 1 job alex

 1 job

and you got killed!


You had one job.

No one:


Scary cool and feels smooth but 2 short for my taste.

Before playing this game, this had never been a fear of mine. After this, I will FOREVER STARE DOWN MY GARAGE DOOR IN PURE UNRIVALED FEAR! A very quick experience, but unmatched in terms of childhood trauma. 

You got me! Fun Game!

I now have a fear of garages!! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Anyway, scary game, I loved it!!

I really like how creepy this experience was! I knew I was dead when the door stopped working. 


This was honestly really good, it gave me a shiver 

This game is surprisingly creepy for a 1-3 min experience.

This is a good game i was playing this at 12 Midnight which it was so scary for me anyway here's a gameplay Video kinda low quality hehe.


This was a really great game but i should not have played it at night LATE AT NIGHT but still it was good also here's a vid for you to watch but IT IS A BAD VIDEO just to warn you but it might not be who know's anyway enjoy. My video. 

Quite enjoyed this one :) it's the first of the three 

amazing concept man!
this is really an amazing format!

Capitalization 100



i made a video on the game, hope you like it ! :D

Haven't played this yet but I've seen a few videos. When the message at the end pops up, I started to think "make sure it's closed" was about the game, not the door.


Nice, short, sweet, and sexy. I'd love to see this built in VR!

Hmm... is it actually possible to close the door? I've played twice now and it seemed to play out exactly the same.

Hello! It is not, it's just that short segment that you played through.

Ok, thanks for letting me know! ^_^
