A downloadable Horror for Windows


On the coast of Virginia,  "Project Flare" is in full swing and secrecy, bringing in corrupted patients. All held in this facility for testing and experimenting. Until 1 contained project breaks loose, one by one the workers are hunted down, murdered within the facility. You are set free, only to realize you are just being stalked. Find the 5 VHS tapes to recover your lost memories, while keeping safe around each corner of the long abandoned halls where someone or something might be lurking. 

You play as captive Maxine, age 16. You have to leave your cell with a mysterious left behind key to find a way out. Will you expose the TRUTH of Project Flare?

(This game was inspired by NOMED, and TRY TO FALL ASLEEP)

Hello! I loved the atmoshpere and scares in the game also noticed how you placed objects in the enviroment to look like eyes in certain places(intentional or not >.>)It was creepy and caused anxitey. The flashlight was a a bit buggy but i thought it was intentional to be honest because it added to the creep factor.loved the story as well! heres the playthrough if ya wanna see!

worst flashlight ever

yeah sorry about that, there was a bug when it was released. But my demos for 2 new games coming out are much better, much more polished, much scarier and nicer looking :)

Gave it a go...

I liked it!! I WAS TOO TOXIC THOUGH!! Have a good day guys :)

flashlight works so weird ... if u change that the game will be more enjoyable


Preferably near a phone where you can call for help.


it was a joke 

This was a pretty good atmospheric horror game! I talked a little more in depth about it at the end! Very spooky!

So glad to hear you enjoyed! I ran out of time before I could make an antagonist to stalk you, the 2 weeks was right before I had to start doing school work again so I had 2 strict weeks of full free time. But in future projects you will most definitely see an antagonist stalking you down as well as possible new mechanics!! :)

P.S. - Currently working on a big project which will be much longer and has an antagonist, so be sure to stick around!

Creepy as fuck and very dark please add more.

I have to say nice start on a horror John, keep at it and I can't wait to see what else you can come up with. 

it doesn't download right for me

1 other person mentioned this, but it seems to download fine for everyone else. Try the gamejolt link and see if that download works 👍

Hi John. Thank you for letting me know about your game.

I have played your game and here are my thoughts. Please take note this is just my personal opinion.


  • Very creepy
  • Cool game menu
  • Nice assets
  • Very well written documents inside the game
  • Good storyline / plot


  • As others already mentioned. The flashlight was acting weird.
  • The flashlight stopped working at some point. I don’t know if I was supposed to find batteries for it?
  • Ambient sound was too loud. It just became very annoying in the end.
  • Too dark in most areas
  • Mouse look wasn’t locked while looking at documents.
  • Very slow movement speed.
  • I received a glitch. It said “Lighting needs to be rebuilt (12 unbuild objects)” in the top left corner

All in all, I really like what you have created. And in such a short period of time. It seems like you definitely know what you are doing. I hope your audience is growing.

Keep up the good work.

I can’t wait for your next project.

thank you for the feedback! And I have figured out how to fix the lighting message bug and flashlight issue, so those will both be better for future projects! I wanted to have the movement speed a little slower than normal to increase idea of anxiety since you can’t round corners very fast. But thank you for playing and leaving feedback :) 

Pretty good for your first full game only problem i had was with the flashlight. It was weird the light like clips to thing and if you walk right up to something it goes dark. That was my only problems in future game i recommend adding a monster or more visual jumpscares. other then that pretty good man nice

Well done dev! You mentioned at the end of the game that this is the final product. I'd like to suggest that before you continue on with any future projects, that you build on what you've got here. There is a lot of potential and I know that you're capable of making this better than it already is. Either way, I look forward to what you make in the future.

Very kind words! I have noticed the flashlight bug, and have figured out how to fix it. Happy to hear you enjoyed and I will definitely build onto this formula into an even better, bigger adventure! :)

pretty good. just a issue with the flashlight.

A few bugs and weird flashlight but overall this was a good start. I want to see more from you :)

good creepy

You should make a Discord Server my dude, you won't regret it

Just finished making one :) 


The flashlight was horrible :) that is my feedback for your next project

I tried to go for an offset flashlight rather than normal one, which caused some issues. I'll definitely fix that in future project! :) 

This is a Great First Project John Sessoms... I can't wait to see future releases... Let the next one be a huge project... : ) 

A good short horror experience, not what I expected.  I also recommend the indiexpo.net website for your game too.
