SCP-398 The Hallway

Hello! For the past few months I have been working on a game about SCP-398.

For those of you who are not familiar with this scp, here is a link:

SCP-398 is a hallway that changes. There are doors occasionally that lead to different rooms. These rooms are always different depending on the person entering them. They often reflect memories of the class D personal who are exploring. I'm not sure how well known this particular scp is, but it is one of my favorites and I think that it has some crazy potential as an experimental horror game.

The player will be D- :REDACTED: . You are forced to traverse this hallway. This game will be different than CB in the sense that it is more story driven. I and a few others have spent a long time constructing an immersive narrative for this game. I love indie horror games but I often wish they could be a little "deeper". Throughout the game you will find audio logs from previous class D personal who have been put inside before. This is the main way the story unfolds.

The main threat in this game isn't a monster, but rather the hall itself. It will constantly change its style. This leaves a lot of room for creativity on my part because the hallway doesn't have to stick to one design! The hallway, and the rooms you can explore, will be soaking with ambiance and dread. The hallway is going to mess with you. There will be some "things" in the hallway that you will encounter. I'm going to refer to them as different variations of SCP-398, such as 398-B.

Here are some screenshots of what the game looks like right now. Please take note that it is in its earliest stages of development
If anyone has any constructive criticism or ideas for this game let me know! As of right now I am the only programmer and artist working on this game. I have two friends helping me develop the plot. If you think you would be able to help out with some of the design of the game feel free to shoot me an email: [email protected]

Please let me know what you think! Tell what I could improve on, what could I add and all that good stuff :wink:

I will give updates on progress as often as I can!

Re: SCP-398 The Hallway

This looks like it's going to be great!!! From the description and the images, I'm getting a sort of "The Stanley Parable" vibe, which I love. I've always wished there were more story-driven SCP games out there, considering how story driven many of the SCPs are. I'm looking forward to seeing more of this! It looks great!

Re: SCP-398 The Hallway

Here are some suggestions
-Add a sprint function, I feel that some people these days have no patience and would get bored fast.
-After you go a certain distance through the hallway you start to hallucinate
-Make it randomly generated, but following the same storyline, I feel this would make the game more replayable
People who can eat people are the luckiest people in the world.
