(1 edit)

WOOOWW! This is is INSANE! I swear when I looked behind and saw the guy, I almost had a heart attack!!! Great game!!! Love the design and theme to it. It actually made me feel alone, and it was kind of scary... but when the creepy quotes started appearing, things got I N S A N E ! And the concept... amazing!

i t s     i m p o s i b l e

you can win by not looking back

I put this game in this mini compilation

I was able to get two endings.

do u have to look behind you all the time?

hmmmm no

Good feel :)

Short and sweet as they say haha

This game was so great without any of the sound! Loved the design! Yours is first up! 

This was a nice short game and I was really suppressed by the different endings. 

Awesome Game! I loved it! i followed you because im excited to see what new things you will come up with! 

I really like games that you can play in browser to thank you for that- and also this game is great ^-^

o wow, this game is really awesome

I really like these 2-3 minute horror games.

This game had a mean twist lmao the 2nd game around 3- 4 minutes 

Corpsepile is a bit of a game design genius. Go check out his other games if you liked Run To Nowhere! 

-Made a Video. (Old Video).

-The Game: 02:08 (The 2nd Game)

my laptop almost broke when i saw that guy behind me!

btw is there a good ending? just asking (*꒦ິ꒳꒦ີ)

Yes, don't look back.

I like how you would actually control your character in the game. i also like the controls, it is simple and easy. when it comes to the gameplay, my anxiety went up lol.  overall, even though it short it is effective as a horror/unsettling kinda game. i liked it!

p.s game starts at 4:50

Got both the endings

It really startled me! I loved how it leaves little hints after the first ending to suggest how to change the outcome.

Wow so simple yet genius XD


Wow I loved the "secret" ending. A great game.

what secret ending?


There are two endings. I would consider one "secret", because the other is much easier to get at first.



thanks for clarifying there is no third ending


Damn. Incredible. I don't suppose there's a third ending if you just don't move at all?

I love the look of this game, the old school silent movie style makes it super endearing , the ending caught me by surprise, I had to replay just to make sure what was going on. Once again, super effective simple and hella fun. Love your work Corpsepile. Look forward to your future work. Watch my play through below, its the 2nd game in the list.

Its not really a game...  But then again its not really intended to be. 

Nowhere To Run definitly doesn´t overstay its welcome and has an ending that makes it worth a minute or two of your time. 

That ending tho. I was not expecting that!


Fun little game, I like the silent movie concept

Nice game, was  really surprised with the other end.

i feel like there's a way to uh.. not lose?

this was dope, i really enjoyed the experience!

Don't look back...

just played through it again and got the other ending, i'm kinda slow lol

I really liked the old-school feeling to the game, it gives it a nice charm. Even though it was short, it was still really good! I played this in a video, it's the second game if you would like to see it :)

hi, nice short game, I make a gameplay in Spanish combined whit another short horror game and I tell a little horror story 

Fun little quickie! KEEP RUNNING!!


i got both endings and i just-


don't look back throughout your play through

I enjoyed this very much. Really interesting for a short game

A great small game.  The attention to detail is what raises it above the average.

That. Was. Awesome. Only second time playing a horror game in my life. The only other was "make sure its closed"

Man you're missing out.

i should play more really

I recommend a game called The Designer's Curse.

thanks. ill try it

Oh yeah, i played that on steam. It was FANTASTIC!

Mmmmm, that atmosphere.

(Your game starts at 14:37)

I have played your other ultra-short experence, Make Sure It's Closed before, and that one got me GOOD despite it basically being "press space four times". SO let's just say that expectations were high.

And let's also say that you did not disappoint.

It's an odd mesh of ideas from the silent film presentation to the core mechanic to the (rather clever) take on multiple endings, but it all comes together so well (and proves that a jump scare can work without sound, holy crap).

You have a real knack for using the games asethaetics and gameplay against the player, and I would LOVE to see you make something longer with this talent. You're fast becoming a favorite of mine. Loved it.


This game has a great potential to be turned into something bigger, I think, and I would love to see it in the future. First of all it's different from other horror walking sims because of controls, that add to the atmosphere of being a frightened lonely person in the alley. Second of all the silent movie aesthetic makes me think about some good classics, like Hitchcock's movies or Nosferatu, so it can actually be the "be the hero/heroine of the silent horror movie" simulation, which leaves a broad choice of plotlines and interpretations. But if the game is longer then clicking a-d all the time would be tiring.
I like the idea about plot twist during the second playthrough. It's just unfortunately maniac with a chainsaw and some generic cultists didn't really click with me, I will be honest it's a trope, that you see way too often. 
But great job done!
