Isabelle is a short first person horror game set in the fantasy dark ages where witches are feared by all. 

Follow the grizzling story of Isabelle, the daughter of a renown baron, through journals left behind throughout the game by her father's adviser. Discover her past in the dark tunnels she has called her home for the last 20 years.

This game was made in 7 days for the Optical Jam #8.  All the art assets were created by me within the jam time. The music and soundscapes were created by Chloe DeMello specifically for the project and the sound effects were purchased from various packs from asoundeffect.com. 

Controls (Listed in-game as well)
LMB/Right Trigger (hold) - Pick up objects
RMB/Left Trigger - Use held object (keys and journals)
Esc/Start - Pause game (limited pause menu for now)

Tip: You can carry the candles. Read the journals while holding them. Use the keys while in front of doors by right clicking.

Tried out your game!

Here it is! Nice job! Don't forget to like & subscribe :)

Really enjoyed this short story. the atmosphere and tone were great. 

Overall, it was somewhat mediocre, but I had fun with it anyway.

Good short story and atmosphere. Very nice for a game that was made in just a week!

Short and nice.  

Short game, but was still pretty scary.  The story of Isabelle and witch was also really creepy. Game starts at 8:13

very spoopy 10/10

ISABELLE is a short mild horror game that takes place in the dark caverns. This indie scary game tests your nerves as you find they keys to your own survival. Can you escape the terror before it finds you?

this scared me alot.

I really enjoyed how the book is read. 

Made it feel like I'm actually holding a book open, very clever.

I was intrigued by the storyline and I thoroughly enjoyed this and would love to see the outside!

Also I'm not sure if it's just because it's not done but the candle did nothing o.o

The candle was supposed to give off just enough light to make you want to carry it but still not feel safe. I felt like it did that pretty well.

Also the game is finished and was made in 7 days. I've been considering a sequel but my main project, Swords 'n Magic and Stuff, just had a successful Kickstarter so I'm focusing 100% on that right now. So maybe some day.

I didn鈥檛 know what to expect with this game I atmosphere and sounds were great I didn鈥檛 know you could read the book at first 馃槀 but still enjoyed it. Start @ 21:43

Like others have said I wish there's more to this game.  Really well done for something put together in such a short time. I'm following your Sword 'n Magic And Stuff project my dude keep it up!

This is really good! i hope you keep working on it! And if you do then it would be really nice if you added a option to read the books with regular text, anyways great job and have a good day!

I played your game and had fun. I just wish there was more to it.

Hey! A few months ago I played your game! I really enjoyed it! The story was really good and enjoyable, the atmosphere was great! I felt like the witch could come around any corner! The scares got me pretty good too!

I also made a little video about it! :)

(It was one of my first horror video's so the quality is a bit lower than my recent video's).


Nice game atmosphere was fantastic looking forward to seeing what you do next :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0WkuMXEE-PU&feature=youtu.be

 A short horror game thats well made! Defo check it out for a quick scare.

Gave the game a shot...

A nice creepy vibe during the entire game. My favorite part was definitely the shadow though. Would love too see more games from you!

Keep up the good work :)


I played this game for a 3 random horror games video, and the game isn鈥檛 bad. At the time of playing I thought it was very short and nothing special, but the fact (I later found out) that this was made for a jam and uses all its own assets makes it very impressive. Good job, I hope you keep making games! 

Here鈥檚 the video for anyone interested: 


Nice short horror game ....Keep up the good work ....

I really liked it, especially the ending.

Creepiest Environment :(((((

Really enjoyed it, the sound design was amazing!

So much creep.

More much please. ;P

It was definitely something lol. The atmosphere was tense, but no real monster or real scares, so can't give it too much praise but here ya go ppl of the net! 

Never been so afraid of a book in ma life.. My body was moist after this one XD

This game was a great little taste of the potential of its developer. The atmosphere, the sounds, the scares everything was well thought out and paced. Especially considering this was made in a game jam. This was a really fun little horror game and  I can't wait to see what other things this developer makes in the future.
