Horror Story: Hallowseed is a single-player story-driven psychological horror game that takes place in the fictional location, Hallowseed. A place forgotten by time, wrapped in a mysterious demonic terror!

Three friends were camping in the woods, when an obscure event takes them away, causing two of them to disappear. Left alone in an unknown place, Michael seeks answers about what happened, while trying to find his friends.

Early Access
Horror Story: Hallowseed is currently in Early Access, which means that the game is still in active development. The current build provides around 90 mins of gameplay while the full version is planned to provide around 6 hours.

The full version will include several other additions and improvements:

  • Many in-game events / micro-scares will be added, changed or refined based on community’s feedback
  • In early access, the house is much smaller which consequently causes events to be reduced. In the full version, this house will be 3 times bigger and will give much more content to the player to interact
  • Secret levels will be added (won’t share much here to avoid spoilers!)
  • Underground Levels should be considered a special chapter of the game and will be redesigned from scratch
  • Achievements
  • Localization to different languages
  • New / improved sounds and audio
  • The AI will be significantly improved and become much more terrifying!
  • macOS and Linux support
  • Controller support
  • The ending will be… well, you will see :) we are not going to share any spoilers here!

Community feedback is encouraged and highly appreciated. We want to make a game that you will enjoy, is well polished, and will include all the content that we designed in our original development plan.

Horror Story: Hallowseed will have a dense story, several puzzles and will be really scary!
