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!

Блин, игра очень атмосферная и напомнила Resident Evil 7, если я не ошибаюсь игру делал один человек и это очень похвально)


This was fantastic loved the atmosphere. It had a RE7/PT feel to the game I’d love to see a full game.

Awesome game !!!!!!

Wow, that was amazing for a short game. I wish there was more. Here is my take on the game!

Thank you so much for the game! I really enjoyed it. 

my final thoughts about this game-

Not much to criticize on the game but some things could improve.
1) not enough events -  the game gave a very creepy feel which i loved and the horror events it had were really good but move events would have made the game more scary.
2) sounds were amazing - the ambient sounds were really realistic and the camera movement with the footsteps made me feel like i was in the game.
3) would love a background story about why i was here in that house so i would  feel more connected.
4)i loved the game graphics would give it a 9/10.  
not giving it a 10  because of some stuff like the clothes going through the door and the particle system of the leaves was really slow not looking realistic .

overall loved the game and would love to see what you come up with in the future

Thank you so much for the game. I really enjoyed it. The graphics are spot on and the photo scare was brilliant! Looking forward to more content from you. Here's my take on the game:

Such a creepy atmosphere!!

Awesome game, gave me some RE7 vibes.


Very polished game... reminded me quite a bit of RE7.

Really nice game, i have try to do something different from the others and make it like a comic book.  (It's in french but it worth take a look). 

Nice horror game with amazing graphics and atmosphere. I made a video in spanish.

Yasss.  A horror game that has such a perfect atmosphere . Everything looked so smooth. Only thing that was weird was how the flashlight worked, it's such a minor issue that it doesn't take away from the full experience. I honestly felt like I was exploring this house instead of playing a game.

Very good atmosphere! Looking really polished and good concept! Keep up! :)

SKIP TO 4:31!!!

Decided to play Contemp for my channel! Really enjoyed it! Well done! :) 

Awesome game, Love the graphics, Sound and the attention to detail. Has a great spooky atmosphere, I was expecting something to get me around every corner!

It was a nice demo of a game which you should really make! Overall yes, it's very short and to be honest, other than getting the key from the shed to enter the house in the first place there was zero interactivity other than moving around trying to find where to go to trigger the next "event". You should really get into creating something much, much bigger from this!

Such an incredible horror game! :)

This is a really scary game =)

I missed some jumpscares but it´s a good game tho. I love it!

I really like the ambient and my feedback is: The colliders of the curtains blends with some props close to the windows, so maybe the visual got affected

There´s an radio prop upstairs that you can borrow I think you add the manipulate object system, but it get stuck in the current position without gravity, so you can check it out to add the physics after grab the obcject or whathever you wanna do.

That´s all! And greetings from an Unreal Horror Developer Fan!

Ok this game actually got me a few times, played as part my 3 random horror game series :)

Wow, can't believe it took me this long to find this game. It's brilliant, atmospheric and intense. I really did enjoy my time short time with this game. Thanks!


Truly a good horror game. The abandoned house have that chilly atmosphere to it. Dark, cold and most of of all quiet. Well in the begining at least. The work on detail here is so good. So many small things and so high detail on each on of them. 

You manage to keep the player on it's toes and still interested in what's happening in the house. This could even be a good horror movie. 

So what's the problem with Contemp? It's to short. ;)

Great job on this game.

Keep it up Bro

I wanted more of this game!! The design was really nice and I loved the eerie feeling that it gave me.  I kept feeling like something was behind me.  Great work!!


Still play this game now and again. I love it. Super spooks!

Genial, excelente ..... 


Your game comes in at 10:45. This game was awesome, really loved the style of it and it was creepily atmospheric .. would love a longer version of it.

I love it, but let me add a few suggestions in the spirit of constructive criticism:

- the head-bobbing and the feeling you are either drunk or on a boat, made me feel dizzy.
- the movement due to invisible walls felt pretty limited
- I find it weirdly convenient that the key was just there and that everything was everything abandoned
- obviously, someone still paying the bills for electricity
...these are details, although they matter :)

Everything else is simply amazing! I am surprised at how great the visual atmosphere is, and actually, I was blown away. Please do make a full game out of this, the world will be grateful :D

This was great, I wish I could check it out in VR.

This was great. Fantastic atmosphere that really kept me on edge throughout. The part with the photo's eyes moving was super-subtle and really freaked me out. 

This was a great, creepy game! Obviously a shorter game just meant for the spooks, it definitely did its job. I was spooked! If worked on more for a story and lengthened to fit a plotline, I think it'd be a very terrifying game!

This game wasn't all I thought it was going to be. It had a very nice atmosphere and had a very eerie feeling to it but I didn't feel any sence of danger going through the game. There were moments earli on where I thought that this was it for me but it turned out to be nothing but noise and this continued throughout the game which took away any sense of danger away from the game. Hardly anything scary happened and when it did, it was expected that something was going to happen. I quite liked the ending to the game though, that did make me jump a bit and got me a little scared. I turned around to try and run and I realised that I couldn't. I don't think any other player has throught to turn around or at least from what I had saw, no one else has but that was a nice touch to the game. Really good technique to use. I do think it your next game could do with more unpredictability because after a while this game became predictable. I go more in depth in my video. Feel free to watch it and give me some feedback. 

This was superb and so SO Tense!

Thanks for making us jump.

Short but really good.

I really enjoyed the sound effects

My girlfriend got pretty scared! Take a look...i'm italian!

For being a short Indie Horror game this was pretty creepy. For starters I wouldn't go in an abandoned house by myself. The house had the RE7 feel to it which made the game even better...good job man, I look forward to future games. 

Really, really love the atmosphere of your game. It's so rad.
