A downloadable game for Windows

Contemp is a short horror story set in an old abandoned house, enter and see how it has been preserved and what you can find inside!

This game is the result of my specialization project as a computer graphics artist from Luleå Technical University. The production time of the game was 9 weeks with everything produced except sound and music.

The game also supports VR interaction but it is restricted just to walking around in the level. Supported VR is SteamVR (Vive) but also works using SteamVR emulators with a smartphone.

I really hope you will enjoy this short game and would love to hear any kind of feedback!

Played this freaky game on my channel! It was the best! Funny moments here:

A really good game. We enjoyed playing it very much.

The atmosphere was so creepy.

Here is a short video we made:

Keep up the good work!!!

creepy game! Very much recommend 

Very nice game! Thanks for making a fun game

very nice !!!!!

Gave me chills all the way till the end HAHAHAHA !!!!

Wow, this game is very graphically pleasing, and the atmosphere was a really nice touch too. It's a pretty creepy game, and I think you have something very good here, only wish it were longer. Haha

Man this game was scary as hell. Great job on this game man. Can't wait to see more.

Really enjoyed playing this, It was awesome! 

I'm terrible with horror things. This creeped me out so much more than I was expecting. 


For a university project I was pretty impressed! :) Great Job!

Hey! i played you game for my channel 

This game is scary and intense as hell watch me crap my pants playing it here !

Gave it a shot! pretty fun for what it is!

I pooped a little

Awesomely creepy game, hope to see more from the devs!

Love the graphics of this game had computer problems at the time so had to "improvise" my own ending hope you don't mind ;)

Seriously fantastic horror game! outstanding visuals with a brilliant chilling atmosphere, i was on the edge of my seat from start to finish, thank you for this awesome horror creation! Highly recommend P.S it is terrifying! 

Please please please make a mac zip! I love these types of games and I feel like others might also need a mac zip. 

A real horror house. If it were any more realistic looking....damn good stuff.

if this was on the console it would be amazing 

I try out Contemp and all I can say is F*ing well done man. This is a fantastic game and puts you in a really creepy environment. 

i feel bad b/c i actually forgot if i posted this link or not, and like i just want to. anyway, loved the game and how it always made me what to crap myse;f :0

I really liked the atmosphere and ambiance of the game, but there was one major problem: You put way too much work on the atmosphere and too little work on the actual gameplay, so the game is short and laggy. But other than that, this game was interesting! =D

God damn was this a well designed game. Music and sound was on point, there were very little "jump scares" and it was more atmospheric and tense. Absolutely loved this and would urge anyone to play it. 

this game was really really awesome to play! details 10/10, ambience 10/10, overall gameplay 10/10! really good job on creating this game! :D 

Really great horror experience! Amazing to look at! Great sound design! Which all ties together to create a really tense unnerving experience! Really well made game! 


p.s I may have been scared by some jackets....

Love you guys! The Dukez 💙

Was very creepy and atmospheric hope to see something more of this game in the future.

Got lost a little but also spooked, great game!

Man! This game was truly terrifying. As someone mentioned, it gave off a very nice PT vibe, and we can only imagine what this game is like on VR! Very nice graphics and overall feel of the game.

A good demo overall. It gives off that P.T. atmosphere, probably because of the realistic resources and environment, also the sudden movements in the background really puts you on edge. I love to see what game you'll make from this, I would definitely play it. Also if you don't mind, you can check out my gameplay.

This was for sure one of the most scary and well made indie horror games I've played in a loooong time. Perfect now when fall comes crawling towards us. Thank you so much for making this! Does it work with the HTC Vive? Cause if it does I might make another video on this

Stay Rad Everybody!!

Great game! here's my gameplay on it!

Thanks for such a good game.

Thank you for this opportunity. I really enjoyed this game and the horror experience!
I'm still very new into creating play-through videos, so i do apologise if some things aren't crisp in my video, but here is my upload. Hope to connect with the community and share more experiences in the very near future.

The game was a lot of fun! I wish the ending had a little better of an explanation, but I guess leaving it to the players mind works well in this situation. I made a video on it if you'd like to see my reaction to the end, great job!

I did a YouTube video on this, great game!

Great Graphics , and great atmosphere bro, I loved all and every detail you added, I would love to see assets from your work be sold for unity3d, I would gladly buy your assets, regards.

Way too scary.... But it was really fun to play :D
