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
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.
Very cool game! I had fun trying it out!
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".
Creepy and interesting nice work.
Gave it a go and sorry if I cut the last part. I'm just staying safe. Either way, great game sir :D
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?
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?
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
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.
hi, big thx for the game. greetings from rosti 😀
Thought it was just gonna be a rip off of No Players Online. I was pleasantly surprised.
Really cool game. Having the bots writhe around and scream after shooting them really added a deep level of creepiness. I love games like this, and this was very well executed! Great job!
Pretty enjoyable. There's a strong creepy factor thanks to the ambient noises, and I like the story being conveyed across different servers. I only wish the story was a bit more concise.
I had a great time with this game. I really liked No Players Online and your game was a nice spin on that concept. Here's a video of my playthrough with commentary:
