The bus has reached the end of the line and won't take you any further. Silence surrounds you, and the trek home lingers before you, but you're not alone. Out in the bush, something else awaits.
Turn around.

Good Game :) Hope theres more!

Fiquei com aflição jogando esse jogo, e sim! é muito bom jogar com aflição pois o jogo de terror é realmente bom! Cada passo que você avança nesse jogo parece que algo ruim vai acontecer kkk muito bom! recomendo!

what is the music in the background? Also can you upload the ambience to YouTube?

Highly enjoyable horror game, loved the graphics. Explored the area a bit. Great pacing. I played 4x, the second 2x I died faster than the first so I tried the old Orpheus/Eurydice trick 4th time and survived, falling off the road/map. Is that a win? Haha...anyway loved it.

That's a win in my opinion :)

I had a really good time playing this game! Sounds were great to build eerie athmosphere. Somehow,the envirment felt familar to me (dim light of streetlights, fallen trees, rusty objects)since I'm from rural region. It was also quite comical to find the bus crashed. Somehow I also managed to get behing fence neat building with carcass and couldn't get out. But overall, it was great experience.

Nice game to chill, really, You should make a game like this, longer, without dying, just walking and scenary... would be like a terapy, the sounds are amazing.

Nice atmosphere and visuals! The running sound as the monster comes up on you certainly got my skin crawling.

This game is special to me. It's the first game I ever played on my channel! I decided to revisit it and it's just as good as I remember. The atmosphere, sounds, ambience, all that is on point. It's awesome that it was made in just 3 days as well! I do have one question though, what's with the end? The map just ends and you fall off. Is that supposed to happen? Thank you for making it!

It definitely hits that feeling of walking home late and alone. Knowing now how the 'monster' works, it was comically lucky how I was able to avoid it so often lol 

There's a bit of a collision issue with one of the fences letting you in but not letting you back out and I got stuck for a bit in that area but that's probably my fault for being a bit to explorative.

Thanks for making games!

Hey this is some really amazing work! Do you have a business email I could contact you with?

yep! Laura.lorian@gmail.com

I almost shit my pants turning around ,nice atmosphere. 

So this reminds me so much of getting dropped off at my friends bus stop, so creepy!

Loved the game, great atmosphere and nice graphics.


I liked it; great atmosphere :D

Thanks! That's pretty much all we had time to get right lolol


I want to run

The Shadow Over Yangebup

Good game! I anxious the whole time and very creeped out!

really good one:0 

I'm sure I was doing something wrong but I always seemed to get a bad ending at random points.

I'd love to have another look at it if I was doing something wrong.


Heya, thanks for playing! Unfortunately, we didn't get the time during the jam to add a proper ending, so you always will die at the end of the dirt road. The way to avoid dying until that point is to turn around periodically, which scares away the monster.


I'll give that a go and see if I can get a bit further than before.


Awesome! Shouldn't be too hard, it takes about 2 mins of not turning around for the creature to get you. To be safe, just do a 360 every minute or so XD

I was just walking backwards the whole time, I guess I'm just superior pfff

i like it make more

Nice idea. It would be better if i can enter the house.

Loved the atmosphere although I had no clue how to shake the enemy once the music starts. 



It was so scary and weird!

And it was fun!

thanks so much for playing our game!

Hey! Part of your game is also available on my channel's fun video! 


Wow! This one really surprised me. The whole game has such a great tense atmosphere and it never felt like just a walking simulator with the ambient effects and music. I loved it! I played it on my channel, starts at 17:35 in this video.

Good game



A little slow and I think I found a bug in one of the fences near the first house with dead cows, you see in the video. I think it would improve the exploration to be able to control the camera with the mouse and would add more tension to the movement on the sides of the first section. The aesthetics of the game is very good and the cresccendo of the music is incredible, good work! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MhP25eR3T5I


I thought someone was running up behind me at the end.

A really scary experience. Good job.


here they come... 

I don't know what grabbed me at the end but I couldn't finish it.

Creepy and atmospheric game that had me feeling like I was being followed the entire time. Really gave me the heebies :P Keep it up guys!

What a crazy unique and fun experience! I really enjoyed giving it a try! Please consider watching my play-though and giving the video a like! 

Heya, thanks so much for playing our game! You actually got really close to the end, you have to turn around periodically to scare away the thing following you :)

Awww dang! Still very cool little game! I guess there were context clues like the music and flickering lights now that I look over it but still I really enjoyed the atmosphere! Looking forward to seeing more!

The bus literally reached the end of the line hahaha I love me some jam games, especially when it can capture such a spooky-factor within a short amount of time for development. This did just that! I also loved how the experience was capped-off with the 'inevitable'!

Great work!

This game was an absolute treat to play, great atmosphere and slow progression of events which built up the tension with a great final pay off. 10/10

Freaked myself out playing this XD i really liked it, i also kind of caused a glitch and got stuck because of it but i break many games, maybe it's just me XD

Creepy little game. I enjoyed it. Thanks!
