this video has all itch io games i made video on in 2020 including this one. I also wanna say thanks for the game and good luck for future projects. #hellofajourney 

my discord:


Does not work in 4k, but it does work in 1440p

muy buen juego


Tried out the game...


I loved the stylization of the game! I appreciated how it let itself be a spinoff of "No Players Online" while still creating some unique and genuinely scary moments. I felt the plot was a little lacking, but with the short length of the game that is completely understandable.


you could make a real DEATHMATCH 404 id LOVE it and im sure others would too lol posting dis cuz my fave rebex game ROOM servers are down


Don't work.

Played through this over on Youtube, and quite enjoyed it: 

It's a nice, spooky little game with a neat premise. The retro-style graphics give it some character, and the sound design is spot on. I definitely recommend this to those who enjoy short horror games.

Game crashes as soon as I boot it up. I hear the cassete being placed into the cassete player but then the game crashes


i tried running it on 720p and that fixed it, i'm gonna go see if any other resolutions work


apparently 1080p just doesn't work, so just try the other resolutions

This looks pretty spooky

clipped out of the map in the first 10 minutes. great game so far!

The game has no horrifying jumpscares but it still gave me goosebumps. Midway through the game i was really feeling terrified. I really loveed it.

Here's my reaction:

I really enjoyed this game. It took what No Players Online did and added another level to it. I really enjoyed the multiplayer aspect of it. I liked how the intensity builds in the game and you start to feel like "I am doing something horrible". I enjoyed the mystery left at the end as well. All in all, a game worth your time for sure if you're looking for a fun horror game to check out! Great job devs!

lol you gotta make a REAL deathmatch 404 so real online multiplayer and maybe a server hosting option it would be AWSOME

Great game, loved the spooky cam effect but gives a little bit of nausea, can't get used to it. Its fun to play. Easy to control character and SFX were awesome. Didn't understand the story though but overall good game.

This is a good game.Great atmosphere. Had a lot of fun playing.

Wierd one

Very cool game!  I had fun trying it out! 


Peace is good

I'd love to know what I'm doing wrong. I've killed all of the red shirts. I even blew off their heads. I can hear growling near the start of the arena, but no matter where I go, I can't find it's source. Looks like I'm supposed to get a message that says "WHAT HAVE YOU DONE PCMR".

Help, please!

Late reply, but if you go to where you spawned and look left, there's a guy on the other side of the fence that you have to kill. You have to go up the stairs and kind of push up against the fence to do it

I鈥檇 really like to see more games with this concept! Super creepy!



i was supposed to upload this gameplay but i got busy, it was an interesting game and the screams including the background music gave me the chills!

A unique idea for a horror game. Most of the time I find that guns really take a lot of the scare out of horror games but this did a great job of implementing it.

Thank you for playing! I'm glad you liked it :)


Creepy and interesting nice work.

Thank you!


Gave it a go and sorry if I cut the last part. I'm just staying safe. Either way, great game sir :D

Thank you for playing and for video :)



So basically, we are playing as a mass murderer who went insane due to the tragic events in his life and percieves everything as a video game and kills himself in the end, or is there a spirit of said mass murderer trapped in a game that he used to play?

I prefer the second version more than the first one :)


Horror films and video games that are set during the daytime, especially outdoors during the daytime, are extremely rare. Some people think that's because daytime horror isn't scary, but I highly disagree. I believe that the reality is that darkness automatically makes things seem somewhat scary to most people, so when you take darkness out of the equation, it is all left up to you as a storyteller to deliberately create something frightening. You don't have the luxury of relying on darkness to help you out when your attempts at causing fear fall flat. Few are willing to take on that challenge, and fewer still manage to pull it off. I am happy to say that Deathmatch 404 succeeds with flying colors, somehow causing me to feel highly uncomfortable and paranoid right off the bat, despite the unassuming brightly-lit environment, and long before anything scary actually happens in the game. With daytime horror, it's all about creating a really uncanny feeling in the player/viewer, and Deathmatch 404 nails it.


Gave it a go and really enjoyed it!
I like the style, the atmosphere and also the little story it had

I'm a little sad that it didn't work. It kept crashing :(

Hey, I'm sorry for the bug. Try changing the resolution of the game to 1024x768 or 800x600 - it should fix that. :)

hey um lol you should make this games like same everything but with ACTUAL online multiplayer deathmatch and maybe an option to create servers? lol itd be funny if ur opponents were dressed like bots anyways yea maybe?

hey you should make like a real deathmatch 404 itd be awsome! lol maybe there could be a mode were after a long time the like floating spectator comes - just a idea - lol itd be cool

Good. It's a little scary. It's horrible


gotta say it would've been great if this wasn't a premade map that i've already seen :/   (https://assetstore.unity.com/packages/3d/environments/industrial/rpg-fps-game-assets-for-pc-mobile-industrial-set-v2-0-86679)

Crashes instantly on start up

changing the resolution of the game to 1024x768 or 800x600


Gave it a go 

Very creepy i very much enjoyed it


Pros and cons are down below) Check out the vid here:


1. The game is very creey! The way botes acted upon being shot actually gave me goosebumps!

2. The style was very cool! I love these old shooter games. I think it's authentic and charming just like VHS horror games these days.

3. I see how you took the inspiration from No players online but turned the game into an original experience nonetheless. Plot was intriguing! 


1. I didn't like how the bots could still make sounds even if their head was shot off. Also, they got stuck in the ground a lot.

2. I think the ending turned out to be a bit bland. So if the main character is being tortured so why then it ends at the end? Maybe it would be cooler to make the player infinitely replay some sequences of the game until they are tired? (But of course there should be some rewards for playing through the level a couple of times more. Maybe more lore). Or the ending could have broken the 4th wall a bit more... Like leaving some files on the desktop or something like that as you have already took some steps towards 4th wall breaking.

3. I think the game would benefit a lot from some more spooks as it is a horror game after all. It would be cool if someone would be sprinting towards main character all of a sudden or something like that.


I enjoyed the game and I think it was pretty cool but the ending could be a bit more rewarding. I think there is still place for improvement but overall experience was cool and creepy! I would rate the game 4/5 stars.

Hope my feedback was useful!

how do you run the game after downloading it? thanks in advance.

you have to play it in full screen, at a lower resolution
