Wow. Really enjoyed the game! Nice use of the audio and minor details like posters and sniffing the air freshener lol. Did get really lost in the forest too. It was a trip.

Thanks for playing man!

I remember playing this while streaming to my cousin and the game provided the spooks for a good time :)

Thanks! I'm glad that you and your cousin had a fun time :)

It's definitely nice to see a game made with this much care. The plot was great. the pacing was fantastic, the environment felt uneasy, everything was just great, thank you for making such a great game Jon !

Also, i made a playthrough of it if you're interested :)

Thanks for playing! I'm stoked that you enjoyed it 8)

Just released a 3 Scary Games video, and The Dish Is Out was the first one in the video! Really cool experience, I especially liked the dreadful feeling whenever I was outside.

Anyways, here's the video: 

Thanks for including me in your video!

I love all of the small stuff you can interact with in the bunker.  It's also insanely creepy.  Those eyes looking back at you when you take a peek upwards?? Wow

Hi,

What inspired the creature's design and how were the sounds made for it? The buildup to the reveal was delightful and I was just intrigued by how you made it! 

Thanks so Much! The monster's glowing eyes were actually inspired by the Netflix show Midnight Mass. The Monster itself is actually just a flat image of a woman that I jiggle around rapidly to make it look spooky and unnatural. The majority of the sounds I downloaded from freesound.org Great website I use it all the time.

The game begins at 7:06

What a great story this game has, the part where you mention that someone went missing in the woods adds the fear of the story. Each time you went out something becomes more serious and those figures chasing you really add to the suspense also. 

Thanks! I'm very happy you liked it :)

Very interesting horror game. I also like the short story as well. I really got into it. 10 / 10.  Also, does the tapes unlock some sort of a secret ending?

You need to extract the zip file before you can play it. You can download a free program called 7 zip to decompress it.
