Red//Black: Two Horror Short Stories

A small experimental horror experience by Matthias Falk. My goal was to achieve a story-driven game with the PICO-8 engine.

Game was made for the PICO-8 Monster Mix and Mash Jam.

Very creepy... I like it though. The sudden loud noises and screen shake made me uncomfortable, but I think that contributed to the atmosphere. Perfect for October!!
