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!

That was really great! Awesome atmoshpere and sounds! Would love to play the full game like this! (playthrough in polish language)

Truly a work of art, this is a phenomenal peice that definetly builds up the atmosphere, tension, and horror. I truly hope there is more like this to come

Wow ut engine really the best for gaming instead of the shitty mouse control in unity great work there . I can see you put passion and time in it i hope you get the attention of a big company because you have the skill to make good game not just graphic but with the story and the atmosphere you really got the skill to make good game. You seem to be innactive on youtube for one years did you stop youre next project because you got hire somewhere or you are working on it when you got the time . Anyway i put your channel on my end card for that video . I try to respect as most posible youre work without any shitty tumbnail with a simple edit . For a small game it was worth the time to play and edit  this game and dont worry my reaction 100% legit im a big pussy when its done well . Really good plot i think i understand why she ended up doing this to her but i still dont undertand why he left did he do something bad or does something bad after he left maybe i was to busy watching my back for jump scare to get the info needed . He might be he does something bad because her love was on the news paper and news paper is rarely for good news . Anyway even if i speak french most of the time i think it could be fun to watch me play this .

I'm eagerly awaiting another game from you. Contemp was amazing and I can't wait to see what else you could make. 

DUDE PLEASE MAKE this a full game come on. this is a 60$ horror game 

This game is full and i think ther a lot of thing hidden in the game to understant what  he really done to make her depresse . The replay  value is there but not for me i play once from A to Z  and dont come back . I know the game is short but its complete and need no more content to feel the trill he put a lot of effort on it hes actualy doing an another project but he seem to be innactive for one years may be he got a job and once you get a job in this you cant make personnal project they consider this as competition so may be he just stop . But damn we can see the talent this man have for doing this all be himself . 

I enjoyed playing this game. The abandoned house atmosphere is well done, graphics and sound are amazing.

That said, a little background story about why we're here ( or some notes ) could help understanding why we're here, or even what's going on in this house.

Anyway,right now I'd like to see the next part of this game ( at least I hope to see it ) !

Here is my experience ( should be translated soon enough ^^ )

well explaning the plot will ruin the game if you want to understand you have to come back and look more around this is why this game is good . As i can understand her husband did something wrong  but i still cant figure out what it is . But its bad for sure because you dont get youre face on news paper for good reason tho .  On the cassette we listen on the secound floor he said he had feeling he can run away from it and wanted to ''roam'' . May be he left her or kill himself and they find his body somewhere . But this is this mistery that make the game really good tho .

Here is my experience... I liked a lot. 

you should make a sequel

The detail in this game is insane. Graphics are amazing as well as creepy. Very nice pacing, gloomy atmosphere, sound is great. 9/10 spooked me to high heavens.

Here's my playthrough:

Amazingly chilling short horror game, would absolutely adore a sequel!

Enjoyed the game! 

Fun little game!

Great DEMO!!

I've seen this game floating around for a while, I thought it was a bit too late to play it, and then I thought I would, Great game! 😀

here a video i did of the game.

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!
