A downloadable game for Windows

Somewhere between sanity and madness lies a realm torn between the two. Illusions become reality, and reality becomes nothing more than a vision.

HUMAN is a short psychological horror game which examines inherent, earthly, and otherworldly evils, and the forces which drive them. As you make your way through an Alaskan auroral research facility in search of employees it quickly becomes very clear that something has become alerted to your presence. Suspiciously, once it knows you're there, you're more than welcome to be there. Drawing you in, you soon begin to question all you see and hear.

HUMAN is highly metaphorical, yet accessible. All is explained in its simplest essence, but for those willing to look beyond the surface, there lies layer upon layer of symbolism, and clues regarding the nature of reality, which add depth to the meaning behind HUMAN.

HUMAN is primarily story and experience driven, however environmental puzzles and problem solving are interlaced within.

Such great atmosphere building in this. The story gives a nice mystery, and overall I really enjoyed this. It's incredibly pretty and the sound design is incredibly on point. The teleportation really starts to get to you, and some of the subtle parts like lockers moving, or the shadow in front of the door only add to the experience. 

My only issue really is that the subtitles are very small, so reading was a bit hard, as the voice acting while great, is hard to hash out amongst the static at time on the radios. 

It's the second game in the video above if you wanting to see a bit of the gameplay. 

Overall though it's worth the experience, and definitely worth a try.

Mega !! Großartige Arbeit.. ich liebe es durch die Gänge zu schleichen und die Geschichte zu erforschen.

Very atmospheric and the creepiness factor is on point, nice puzzles that aren't hard but are solid, the act of teleportation is mysterious as you don't know if you're just being controlled or actually teleporting. All in all i really enjoyed it. Thank you for making this! 2nd game.

This game was SUPER CLEAN AND AMAZING! Such a refreshing and delightful experience! It's a must check-out game! Thank you for the work that was put into this!

Awesome! The creepy, unsettling atmosphere was spot on. I loved it. Great details like dripping blood, flickering shadows, and ominous sounds. The ending was abrupt but other than that a solid game!

Really creepy game. I enjoyed it a lot. Keep up the great work! 

A very fun and creepy experience, it's really good even after all these years.

This Game Was Really Scary And I Had A Lot Of Fun Playing It.

Great atmosphere, very creepy. I was actually afraid lol!!! 

This was a great game was creepy and had a good atmosphere liked the teleporting made it like a puzzle

I played Human and loved it. Very good psychological terror. I want

A pretty cool horror experience. Well done! :)

Tried out HUMAN, a sequel would be dope.

I hope they continue with this game because it def hit the mark! 


You did a lot with a very limited aesthetic! I think the VHS element actually added something here, because you can blame the blackouts/teleportation on camera malfunction.  Very good idea.

I love the uniqueness of this game with the illusions and the separation of time with the changes in location! I would like to add that I wish the story was told more through the gameplay and the game itself rather than the tablets to add in some immersion. I'd also like to see a bit more gameplay implemented to give the player something to do rather than just walking around. Still thought the game was good though just needed a few tweaks! :) Check out my review here: 

It was a cool experience!
I really liked the style. I like PS1/VHS horror type of games anyway so I really liked this one!
7/10 :D

This was the third game I played in this video and it was AMAZING!!!

This was a very well made horror game, it had me on the edge of my seat through the whole thing. Excellent build up, and overall great experience. I would recommend this game to anyone wanting to play a short but effective horror games. Well done!

incredible horror. must play.

10/10 screams

This game was  A treat to play, visually impressive with a few interesting mechanics. Surprised this was completed as a game jam to be honest. The voice overs are great but unfortunately, the static really masks the talent, wish it was just provided normally. Otherwise great game!

What engine is this?

Awesome creepy game. Hope you like the custom thumbnail for the game on my channel.

Okay, this game was great. For a short psych game, it really did it's part! Had my heart pounding!!

Wonderful game! One man team for the game? I'm impressed it hit a lot of the good marks. One does wish the subtitles were a bit bigger. Audio sounds were on point and I'm hard of hearing

One Of If not the best games I have Played On itchio!!! The Sounds Were superb and freaked me out .   The Apparition could have used some work but other than that It was an enjoyable Experience

I won't lie. I liked this game a lot! I would have made some small changes towards the final stretch, but otherwise, I had a ton of fun playing it!

Nicely done, the build up is pretty well executed. Made a video just a few hours ago (in german):

Fun little game, and definitely creepy!  Did a play through for my YouTube Channel, and it was a lot of fun!

This game was so awesome! I had a great time playing it, the tension and gameplay worked so well together.

This is insanely good. Great story, awesome buildup of tension, a few good jump scares. I loved this! Here's my playthrough:

(1 edit) (+1)(-4)

Pile of crap, like almost all indie horrors. No gameplay at all. Just walk around, read stupid letters, like always. Graphics nice, but levels are empty. Nothing to see here.


Hey everyone, 

This was a awesome experience! Very well made and really creepy atmosphere! 

I've recorded my gameplay and made a video, which can be found here :

Very well made, love the ideas behind this, a 2nd set of footsteps got me good

That was a cool game. Like others have posted, was not expecting the ending. Thought it would have been something alien. Nice job.


Played this and wasnt expecting it to turn out the way it did, i was expecting monsters

I played this a long time ago, figured it was a good time to revisit it :) 

Definitely not what I had in mind at all when it came to the ending, I was completely wrong. This game was quite the unique experience. Here is my playthrough if you're interested.
