This game was awesome. You managed to take the best parts of horror games and slap it together into a single coherent experience. I'd love to see where this game could go. I played it with a jumpscare and moan counter to see just how many times I was scared shitless.
A downloadable game for Windows
Otherworldly is a horror game set in a dungeon-like place, although I'd consider underestimating its powers by calling it a dungeon.
It's an otherworldly place - just like the title suggests. We have no idea when and where did it come from. It can't be destroyed nor modified. Any attempts to blow the place up were unsuccessful, it looks as if nothing had happened. Things that cannot be explained by logic occur there. Creatures out of this world wander the corridors, and as far as we know, their intentions are not good at all. Be unlucky enough to encounter any of them, and you will most likely end up as another missing person.
Not many people went down there - only those who were blinded by the supposed wealth that place provides. There are stories it's filled with worthy stuff, such as gold bars, or simply money in cash.
They went down there to collect the loot, only to never come out alive. And yet, here you are. Thinking it's easy cash, and that there's nothing to fear. Simply ready to open the door and walk in there. Well, go ahead.
There is a chance this game could be made into something way bigger, but I need to see how people react to this version first. :)
I could add randomly generated dungeons, more monsters, better mechanics, etc.

I made a little video about your game! and I just wanna say that I like it! the atmosphere gave me Amnesia vibes! although the jumpscares tend to get old in about 10 minutes, the game was good nonetheless, I also made a short review (a full one coming soon) at the end of the video just so I can help you with your career as a Developer (Please do take notes about them if you're planning to watch the video because I think I made some criticisms and one of them is regarding the repetitive jumpscares that I think will help you a lot)!
Oh, and I forgot to mention a bug or a glitch; the monster that chases you can phase through doors which makes them harder to avoid and/or hide from! It would be nice if there's some kind of door-break animation if they spotted me going to a room just so the monster wouldn't appear so ghostly! again, I like your game, it's not perfect but definitely in the (almost) above average side!
I saw this game and was instantly intrigued, and it scared the shit out of me. I totally like this game although jump scares get a bit too repetitive (even though it still scared me everytime), I like the dark and mysterious aesthetic.
De los mejores juegos de terror, me asusto de verdad, icreible ambientacion
aqui el gameplay en ESPAÑOL
I see where you got your inspiration from.. ;) great game none the less!
POSSIBLY the scariest game I've EVER played...This game could take you days OR it could take just one sitting to complete.
The complete and utter helplessness you feel while playing this game is very rare to see in games. This game doesn't hold your hand...though...you may need to find someone to hold your hand after seeing your first monster! 😂
I can happily say I beat the game and here is my video of the "Otherwordly," gameplay. (Starts at 6:28) I hope you enjoy the video and you try this great game for yourself!
Gave it a go...
Otherworldly is a great free indie horror game. If you’ve ever played dungeon nightmares you’ll feel right at home here. It scared the crap out of me quite a few times.
The only thing that bothered me was the game is actually quite hard, but maybe I just need to get good.
Here’s my play through for those interested:
Gave it a go...
Totally awesome! It's hard to scare me and this scared me
I was once a princess until they banished me to the Otherworld. They thought I would give up and die...they were wrong...I escaped.
XOXO - C.P.
There was also a part where one of the other monsters got stuck on a skeleton, so maybe if the other monsters can pass through them that'll keep that from happening?
I'd like to record this again to try and beat it, especially if you do end up expanding on it!
The first 6 seconds of this video tells you how much I liked this game!
This reminds me of Dungeon Nightmares and Dreadhalls.. interesting.
the creature was crazy lol
Made a video
I'm so dead 😂
Very similiar to Dungeon Nightmares but its actually scarier :)
Heres a drunk let’s play
Very cool game. Reminded me a lot of Dungeon Nightmares.
A stamina bar would also be very handy.
