Vacant (itch) (ribyrnes)
Film a ghost-hunting show.
A narrative pixel-art horror game.
Headphones strongly recommended. Many sound effects are directional for best atmosphere. Subtitles can also be enabled in the main menu or pause menu.
Play time: ~30-40 minutes
The downloadable versions provided below are better quality (and less likely to hit performance issues) than the in-browser version, but I like to make an in-browser version available since that's easier for some people. Plays in the browser on Chrome in particular are occasionally buggy in non-reproducible ways, and I simply can't debug these problems well. Also Godot audio in Chrome on Windows still has a tendency to be a little weird (although not as bad as before) - if you're on Windows, playing in Firefox or downloading it may be better overall. Sorry. I tried.Controls

Click "Run Game" and wait for it to load. It may take some time. Note that it won't run properly on mobile browsers. If it seems laggy or slow, try restarting your browser and/or computer.Download on Windows
Download the Windows zip below. Windows will probably block execution of the game in which case you will need to convince Microsoft Defender to run the game via More Info > Run Anyway. I don't want to shell out hundreds of dollars for code-signing certs, sorry.Download on Mac OS
Download the Mac zip below. MacOS will probably block execution of the .app file, which you can bypass in System Preferences > Security & Privacy > General > Open Anyway. I don't want to shell out a hundred dollars to get Apple notarization, sorry.Content warnings
