Embark on a nonlinear and scary survival-adventure game. Why are you in this abandoned house in the woods? Is it fate?

They drive you crazy but you need to keep a clear mind and shed some light on those mysteries. Speaking of light, make sure it doesn’t go out, your heart might not handle it… Breathing Fear is the winner of Games Jam: Gamm. No jumpscares here, just a meticulously-crafted story, pixel art, music and atmosphere that will give you the creeps.

Breathing Fear Reviews

The less you see, the more you fear, thus beyond such minimalist an appearance, this intricately staged journey reveals a darker and crueler plot than expected.

You're not going to get much replay value out of Breathing Fear, but that's expected at its asking price of $5.00. It's best enjoyed in one prolonged gaming session, so it's more effective as a slightly unsettling way to kill a couple hours on a road trip…hopefully to an abandoned house in the middle of the woods on a very dark night. Remember to pack your batteries and alcohol.

In conclusion, Breathing Fear is an oddball game. Not fun but very interesting is the way I would describe the game. In my humble opinion this game is perfectly priced at 5 bucks and if you want one big puzzle disguised as a 8bit action game, this is the one for you!
