You wake up in a vacant house, everything seemingly normal and calm. All the rooms look typical and standard, as the atmosphere of eerie silence begins to invade your mind. As you slowly walk downstairs, you find a locked phone, along with a mysterious note next to it.

"Look for the channel numbers. Unlock it quickly, she's watching you. Don't leave the static on for too long, it makes her ears bleed. Right now she's upstairs waiting for you." - Anonymous

In The Survey, you play as Marcus Walker, waking up in a seemingly vacant home. As you unlock the phone and play through The Survey, a series of events from the past come alive to haunt you. This short horror experience includes puzzles, along with a cryptic story revealed through audio tapes and journal entries from the protagonist.

Welcome to The Survey.

This Game is very reminiscent of P.T. from the Playstation only with a slightly less chic Graphic. At the current Lowered price of €3.99in at all time a Must for all Horror Game fans! Finally another Horrospiel That is really creepy. Game Time on the first Run: ~ 2 Hours

The Survey is one of the few Games of this kind where I say it's worth buying. The regular Price of €4.99is ok, but you can also get it in the Sale for €1.49to. The Atmosphere is really good and the Story is thoughtful, and not such a simple Standard. Graphically, it's also nice and you can also see that the Creator of this Game has made an Effort. The moments where the Jump-scares come in have become good and show, due to the Mood and Atmosphere, that they are very well thought out and not gossiped As cheaply As is the case with most Indie horror games. All in all, a clear Recommendation.

For me the best Horror Game! To be honest, I found The Survey quite lame at the Beginning and I couldn't cope with the Puzzle and was about to give up. But thanks to a YouTube Video, I was able to find out the Code I had to enter in the mobile Phone, which by the way is a great Idea! Next, you are very fixated on the Mobile phone and are assigned Tasks. As Time goes on, you get drawn more and more into the History of the Game and it gets more and more exciting. The first Time I came across "the Being," I'm totally freaking out. In my Head loud Scenarios were played and I pondered what it can hold up to. In the last Hour of the Game I had panicked Anxiety to keep playing. I could partly only carry on with my Eyes closed because it was so horrible for me. Usually I'm used to Horror! But that was just way too fierce for me! In the End, I was also super amazed at the Course of the Dishes. 10/10-Graphic 10/10-Story 10/10 Creepy factor _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ The best horror game ever! The Survey was at first too boring for me because I couldn't figure the code for the mobile out. I had to watch a YouTube video to get the code. The mobile gives you tasks to do and some tips. After a while the story of the game is getting deeper and deeper. When I first met "the thing" I was totally scared and confused. It makes super creepy sounds and I tried to get what it was. The ending of the game got me really hard. I was too scared to continue playing. "The thing" got creepier and creepier and follwed me. At some point I had to cover my eyes to continue playing. I'm normally used to horror games but this one was too creepy for me. The story is really good and at the end I was totally shocked. 10/10 Game graphics 10/10 Story 10/10 creepiness I'd totally buy it again!
