About the Game

Darkness is a scary first person adventure game with some action elements.

It is developed in Unity and its world is made out of Voxels.

Please play the Demo! :D

Your room at home

The Story

You play as Karl, a boy that is - like many children - afraid of the dark. He has his own reasons to stay out of it, though.

Your journey begins in your own room at home. A new home, where you are supposed to have a fresh start.

One part of this new life is finding new friends. Getting into a new group of neighbourhood kids at this age can mean that you need to do something weird to get accepted, of course.

It always starts in the dark

When you set out into the dark on this fateful night, you do not know what to expect of it. But you surely do not expect the trip to have that much of an impact.

When in fact you will not return as the same person. If you will return at all that is...

Find out what has happened to Karl, that started his fears and help him slowly overcome them to bring light into the darkness.


You will explore the abandoned house in first person perspective in search for clues or items that you need to solve puzzles to advance. You will have a classic inventory and will often directly manipulate the items in the environment, e.g. by dragging a drawer or pushing down a door handle.
