I enjoyed the story you created,  everything sounded and looked great, i was expecting a jumpscare so hard or i thought i would get chased lol 

Amazing story! Great Lynchian atmosphere! Sound design and voice overs are 10/10! Thank you for that little experience :) Here's my playthrough (Polish language) Cheers!

Hi, gotta say, I really loved this game. I actually played it three times and still felt that unsettling atmosphere, expecting something to suddenly be there. I loved the music on the old gramophone, although I didn't turn it on in this playthrough since it's copyrighted. You guys did an awesome job and I hope to see more games from you.

Loved the atmosphere and the storytelling.

SKIP TO 3:49!!!

I'll answer your question as soon as you answer mine : 

whatever happened to Robot Jones? 


loved the game! impressive storytelling too! 

I'm sorry, but repeatedly going into a creepy infernal environment only to find tapes that tell me I should stay out of the creepy infernal environment doesn't make for a compelling or rewarding game experience for me.

anyone know what the font was for the title of the game IDK if it was made especially for the game or if it's an actual font you can find ?

It's called Titania

enjoy πŸ˜‰πŸ‘

Really really enjoyed this game, I think it's brilliantly well done πŸ˜€

Daww thank you so much!!

Whatever Happened to Ruth MacArthur is a nice short horror game where you listen to tapes left behind from Ruth to find out what happened to her. It relies on suspense over jumpscares, which is always a nice change in horror games. You find yourself in an LSD colored hotel room with disturbing art on the walls and listen to very goosebump raising tapes left behind. Also, that red room though! My only gripe is that I wish we could change the mouse sensitivity and the music in the game tends to down out your voice (its very loud). But overall I would definetly recommend the game  as it's very effective in creating suspense with nothing but background noise and the narrative of Ruth. Here's my video below if you want to check it out!

thank you! im glad you enjoyed our game πŸ’–πŸ’–β˜ΊοΈ
