I always wanted to be a villain of a horror game.

And here you are! :) Did you enjoy it?

Yes, but I feel sorry for the poor kid that experienced being torn to pieces.

strange concept i like it :D 

Starts at 7:54.


I had a lot of fun with this game. Great Job!

what a neat little twist

Neat game! I enjoyed the twist ending. I did a gameplay if you are interested, I'll link it below.

Una historia corta, muy bonita y sencilla, para jugarla Relajado, quizas Un poco mas de Gráficos, podeis ver el video también en mi canal de "Placebogamer" yo quiero que me ayudéis suscribiéndose a mi canal, gracias por bronceado bello juego amigo./A short story, very beautiful and simple, to play it relaxed, maybe a little more graphics, you can see the video also on my channel "Placebogamer" I want you to help me by subscribing to my channel, thanks for such a beautiful game friend.

That was a cool little game. Didn't take too long to realise what was going on, and I loved how we joined the others at the end, lol.

I did have a few issues getting it to run though, crashed a few times.


This game is amazing.  Great experience.

Thank you, I'm glad you liked it! And thanks for sharing your playthrough, always cool to watch it out! :)

This was really well made! Cool graphics, and a nice twist at the end! I enjoyed this a lot!!! Here's my playthrough:

Fun choise of graphics. Works good for the enviroment and gives a good creepy feeling. Liking that the player starts the game out knowing nothing of whats going on, instead getting some small hints of what going on on the way. 

The only thing that making this game a bit difficult is that the hunger meter goes down somewhat fast. So its better not to forget that one. :)

What's best is the twist you leaving in the game. Made the whole game for me. :)

Well done art, very interesting atmosphere and a simple story that manage to impact without having a single line of dialog.

I didn't like to go around being anxious of the starve bar, it made me lost some of the enjoyment from the above. That feature dosen't match the rest of the game, mechanically speaking.

That was awesome! The ambience and the conclusion blew me away! Here's my playthrough (in Polish) Cheers!

I loved the graphics and the atmosphere, nice little twist cool :)


This game crashes every computer I try to load it on, which is a shame because I've seen this one on YouTube and it's worth a play.


I played this in my 3 random horror game series

I really like the art style of the game reminded me of minecraft and silent hill. I just really wish it wasn't that short, but the atmosphere of the game is where it attracts you.


Muuy bien juego, el pixelado y la idea me ha encantado


In a world where you only follow your basic instinct. will you survive the hunger, or would you let the hunger consume you 


Heya, Someone posted this on GJ and it doesn't look like you. https://gamejolt.com/games/Embuscade/403014


Hi, thanks for letting me know! The guy is saying that I let him post the game on his page. I highly doubt so! I've reported it to the GJ team

Sure thing!

excellent good idéa ;)

Cool Game

OH MY GAWD! THIS GAME! It definitely caught me off guard. I won't spoil it but if you are reading this just play it. It's short and great.

Your game starts at 13:03

Really enjoyed the bit right before the end.

Hi, Dear Dev

Its a nice short game you made there, I've loved it that I made a  gameplay video

Can you make a mac version of the game?


Hi, dear Dev!

I've expirienced a bug. This little girl stucked in a path and I couldn't get through.

She was running in place.  It was on a path when I heard crying noises.

Please look into it.

It is a nice Game... I would not call it the Best free Game of 2017, but still nice Game

I featured this game, short but sweet. well done for a game jam game.

"Embuscade: Best free game of 2017" and yet you have to pay for the game, lol

you don't HAVE to, it is a donation, you can always choose not to donate anything and still downloa

Short but spooky. Fun game with a interesting twist!

It was a really cool short experience game.

This was a really enjoyable and short experience! Since the game was made for a jam, it is quite short, but the quality of the overall experience is still very high!

Here's a video of my play through! :)

Embuscade is one of those games where you have to experience it for yourself for the first time. Because you’re dropped in a dreary world where you have absolutely no clue as to who you are and what you’re supposed to do. But that’s what’s fun about this inde title once you figure It out. When you do, you are meant with an eye opening surprise when you reach the end.

Un beau boulot les gars ! L'ambiance est vraiment sympas et les jeux de lumières + brouillard, surtout la fin, dur de s'y attendre.. rien à dire, hâte de voir la suite qui a l'air plus que prometteuse !

Definitely an awesome game! The twist worked wonderfully! I made a video showcasing the game

Wonderfully done short game. The creators were able to develop an abundance of tension in such a short amount of time. I can't be the only one who didn't see the twist coming! 

Dunno why I didn't find this game earlier because this is really good idea! I even did a small sketch near the end :D

Wow. I was so pleasantly surprised by this game. The visuals are 10/10, the sound design is 10/10, and the story could definitely be made into a full-fledged game. I need more!!! :D
