Can you make a mac version of the game?

Attention, Google Translate, I'm from Russia

Hi, Max!
I've been following your games for a long time, but just now I've thought of registering here, I'm sorry.
I had to digress from you for a while, I look, and you already have the second part planned.
I always thought that your first game, that without a number-something like a demo version, is too short, and the final was intrigued ...
Tell me, is everything over now, is it over?
Yes, the second part will definitely be cool, a lot of new, I'm sure, but ...
P.S. I like everything, you're good and handsome, go on, and do not stop to stop.
P.P.S. Thank you for being.

Hello Peter (it's your name right?)
Thank you for supporting me and for having played Embuscade. The second part is planned right. Although the game will be more gameplay based than story, so you won't actually understand everything that happened in the first game, i want to keep the mystery ;) But there'll be some surprises... I can't tell what but the ones who played the game will understand ;)
I invite you to follow the devlog of the second game here : https://maxparata.itch.io/embuscade-2/devlog/36445/05-cleaning-preparing-on-the-...

PS : The devlog will change adress soon, I'll notify you ;)

Thank you very much for your answer
And yes Peter is my name

This game was really well done.  I like the pixel style to it.  Short, and sweet is the best way to describe it.  

This short game is worth it just for the plot twist.. Really well made for such a short game 

What a  twist! And the game was amazing .

I did not expect that this game was so good! :D i really enjoyed it and i want more of it! :D 

really cool game like has some great ideas and looks really great cant wait for more!!

awesome game must watch and support my channel

This game all in itself took me completely by surprise. It was amazing!!!

Here is my video it was awesome game love it little bit wired how i started to eat trash and stuff hahah but good game love it here is my video for it 

The game was shorter than expected, but worth a playthrough!
That ending though, I'll never forget...

love the game wasn't expecting the ending

Very nice game! Thanks for making a fun game

Hmm. sorry kids, but maybe its my computer but my character was walking at a SUPER slow pace and it crashed twice :0

Just couldnt play it.

I really enjoyed Embuscade. I also made this video.Loved the atmosphere and the eating of trash to survive. Hope to see more from you in the future.  

Wow this game had the most shocking  ending of the year 0.0.

(Edited 1 time)

I really liked the concept, being a zombie is something new~


Dope ! Loved the concept!  i would smash 10/10 ! Looking for more in

FUTURE :)

Unplayable... It's like a green flash is still running over the screen. It's very annoying and makes it impossible to see anything. Also hurts the eyes...

This game was the first game that I played in my recent Game of Three video. (Yes, this type of video is sort of based from Three Free Games with Pewds)

I have played 2 other games, which you can watch if you want to but if not, you can just watch the first game I play which is your game. Hope you enjoy! 

This game was great, very nice twist at the end.

The Moon has to be the best moon I have seen in a long time in a game :-)

Great job.

For some reason my recorder didn't pick up this game for my channel. :-(

Looking forward to your next projects.

Very Interesting story!! The twist got me so good xD

OMG this is a nice horror game!!!!! 

I am a german YouTuber and have the Game lets playt!

This game looks really awesome for what it is. Wish there was more!!

Hello! Played this game on our channel, I love it! You have more projects coming up? 


The game was pretty interesting and very pretty for a  voxel game. I really enjoyed it and hope to see more from you in the future, even maybe a more full game. A lot of potential here!
Video:

Gave it a go...

This game's sound track is great! I really hope they make it a lot longer! It's an pixelated atmospheric "survival" horror game.

If you'd like to check out gameplay before downloading it, you can here: 

I know this game isn't super intense in terms of graphics, but my computer is shite. Is there any way to adjust graphical settings? I really wanna play this but its playing just a wee bit slow.

Did anyoen else think the girl was knuckles the first time you played

Hey just played your game thought it was a lot of fun and please keep up the great work


My playthrough: 

A short, but well crafted game, Embuscade is an unusual combination of voxel style and horror theme, and I feel the two were combined very well. The subtle lighting and crisp audio worked well with the gritty textures to build just the right amount of spook, and the plot twist in the end was amusing as well.

Good job on this.

This game is beautiful! Ran smooth, which is awesome, and has cool mechanics that keep you moving! Loved the twist, and the hints given around the game to make you go “OHHHH, DUH!” At the end. 

Very cool. I absolutely love the way this looks. Would be great to see a longer game using this style. Lends itself to a nice creepy atmosphere.


How can I describe this without giving too much away? Umm, it was short yet riveting! I had a super fun time with this one, there's so much nuance and story bundled into a tiny package and I loved every twisty turny second of it.

The look of it, the feel of it, the atmosphere... everything is spot on! Great work, really looking forward to seeing more of your ingenuity in the future.

That was a total shock, I did not expect that, very well done for this game.  This is the sort of think I love.  Is this on Gamejolt?  If it is I will support it there too.
