Amazing game love the atmosphere. Hey are ya working on a full version of this game with a story?

No, it's a one shot game that suffice to itself I think :)


La 6èmes partie de cette série de 3 jeux d'horreur comprend... - Contemp ------------------------------ Pris dans les bois , vous appercevez une petite maison et décidé d'y entrer... Embuscade ------------------------------ Vous avez faim non stop mais vous ne mangez pas que des poubelle... ROT ------------------------------- Après un accident avec votre véhicule , vous tentez de vous rappellez des évènement passé...


great atmospheric game! could be longer and better but overall a nice experience

Yeah, I'd have also loved to have had more time to create a longer game.


Fourth and final in the line up. Short effective, purely story via game play. The hunger keeps the tension up, the slow pull backs effective, and the kiss off with that sky box.. Good job.

I'm glad you enjoyed your play through! 


this is a really cool game and was not expecting that twist 


Loved it!


Loved eating the garbage, G.O.T.Y.


Such a great game.. very nice story and atmosphere!

some of the best games here on itch.io! :)

Thanks a lot for supporting indie games!


Very scary and very cool art style. Love it!

Short but not bad, liked the way the graphics looked. Made a video on it.

I adore the voxel visuals on this one and really well done. A short and fun game with a good twist in the end. Great game.

NAILED this story. Wow. A nice twist and a great AHA moment. Thanks for the immersion.


That was amazing!  5 stars!

Beautiful graphics! Pretty short, but it's a very interesting experience. (Pt-BR)

Gorgeous, imaginative zombie game. I had no idea what to expect and was pleasantly surprised. Not usually big on attacking the defenseless but...I had to eat. Her or me.

It was pretty short game but also de graphics are awesome and the sounds are scary, congrats! ;)

Graphically fantastic little game, i really enjoyed the show and don't tell side of the story and it was a cool surprise when the truth came out. Thank you for making this! 2nd game.

Absolutely Amazing Game, Scared Me 5 Times, Confused Me Alot Of Times, I LOVED THE AUDIO, I loved the Scenery, I loved the atmosphere, and the ambience in some parts, reminded me of walking dead abit, and also reminded me of Fallout 4 (Glowing Sea) Loved This Game 11/10 Cant Wait To See More <3


Great! I like your game.



Me gustó mucho la idea del juego y los gráficos son espectaculares. El final es muy sorpresivo. Quiero otros 25 - 40 minutos de juego. Creo que vale la pena hacer un juego más largo. 

The surroundings are very creepy especially walking alone in an alley. Good game!


I'm glad you got crept!

que gran juego la verdad, de mis favoritos ahora 

What a great game the truth, one of my favorites now

(Embuscade is the first game in this video) Sure glad I played this! It's always nice for the player to be someone unexpected! I wish I played this a long time ago! As short as the game is, it sure is one of the most remembered. I have played for my daily Halloween uploads, I will most likely try your other games out! Keep up the good work!

Didn't know what I was expecting when I decided to use this game as the 3rd game in my impromptu video.

Embuscade has such a beautiful air to it and the atmosphere leaves the player wanting more. Even though it's short play-through, this game is one to remember and treasure and should be held has a gem among indie games.


Wow man, thank you so much for the support! Seeing Embuscade as a gem among indie games is a real honor to me. It's been 4 years already that Embuscade came out, and people are downloading it every single day. And when these spooky October time are coming, there are even more players. I'm very pleased to see it persisting through the years and hope it will continue that way.

Odlična i kratka igrica, razumljiva i odličnog koncepta, zvučni efekti te tema su jedna od boljih, sviđa mi se i sretno sa gradnjom ostalih igrica!


Hvala puno!


This game left me with such a shock! this was an amazing experience, I didn't expect it to be so immersive. 

Nice! x) Mission accomplished then

So surprised this didn't go on my radar sooner! Came here from Game Dev Unlocked, and totally downloading based on the screenshots. Keep up the good work!

Hi! Thanks a lot! Can you post the link from where you saw it please? I was searching for Game Dev Unlocked but I didn't find anything about Embuscade.

I have a problem. I downloaded the game after seeing it on a YouTuber's channel. But it won't play. When I launch it, it asks for a VR headset, which i don't have. this confuses me, as this game, to my awareness, doesn't need one. Help

Hi! This is really weird, I think it comes from something else cause nobody ever told me about this problem in the comments. Maybe it's win10 that's crazy (as usual XD). I unfortunately can't help much, I hope you'll find a solution.

Hey, thanks for replying. I managed to fix the issue by uninstalling the VR app in Steam after installing the Itch client, because even opening it in Itch (before uninstalling the VR thing) caused it to keep opening it and refusing to launch the game without it, for some reason. I can play it now. It's a great game, with great visuals and a creepy atmosphere. I loved the plot twist at the end. It really is a great game. Good job :)
