Dim - Playable Demo
A downloadable game for Windows and macOS
SMN MHMDY PRODUCTIONS
Dim - Teaser is a free playable demo for an upcoming horror game.
This demo takes place in a small part of a house, where you play as an unnamed protagonist with a "very specific" back story that makes him know what's going on, well, him, not you.
Explore the house, look for clues and experience this small 10 - 15 minutes playable demo.
- Play with headphones and put your system sound as loud as you can tolerate.
- Don't forget to install the included font, otherwise probably in-game texts won't appear correctly.
- Graphical art of this game is inspired by old 90's games.
- The whole game, its assets, and soundtracks are made by one person.

Hello, I appreciate the effort and the style of the game. I sadly have to say that.
Matt checked out the game and really liked it.
An interesting demo. We enjoyed it very much. Can't wait for the full release.
Here is a short video we made while playing:
A quick little 8 minutes of fun :>
Umm help me mom! I loved this playthrough >>
I did a thingy
(serious talk though, I honestly liked the concept of this game. Really looking forward to seeing where this goes.)
Reminded me a lot of PT! Very creepy atmosphere! Definitely want to see the finished product and see where the game goes! Awesome work!
I played this game for a 3 random horror games video!
I've got to say you build some good tension and atmosphere in game without the use of cheap jumpscares! I look forward to seeing where this project goes!
Here's my play through for those interested:
Italian Gameplay for my channel! Great concept, can't wait to play the full game :)

Watch Markiplier playing it!

From the demo it looks like it will be a realy cool game scary and fun
Watch Jacksepticeye playing it!
Gave the game a shot!
Wouldn't have made it without my soccer ball :P
Come play soccer with grandma in Dim, a new playable demo on itch.io. She's pretty good at it!
There was some good tension all the time. Looking forward to play the complete version! Keep up the good work :)
Nice horror game! I got jumpscared quite a bit in this game. I liked how the game had like a static/grainy effect as well.
It needs some work but it has good potential and is a good demo experience.
The last clue took me a while to figure out. Once you know it it's easy but it's just so uncommon in a horror game 😊
Simple game, has it's moments. Needs a bit of work.
I have played it in my latest 3 random games :)
As much as I loved the style, it needs some work... but hey, atmosphere was great!
Hi! Thanks for making this game, I made you a video
nice. Like the graphics and atmosphere. Story intrigued me a bit as there were enough clues to make me think I might have some idea of the bigger story. Looking forward to seeing the full version.
keep up the great work, really liked the old graphic style, definitely made the atmosphere more appealing and creepy. the jump scares really got haha. didn't experience any problems it ran smooth. this game outta the three i played definitely almost made jump outta my seat. creepy sounds and creepy vibes were well put into this little demo. keep up the great work. i made video for it. it's the first game in the video. thank you for checking out the video!
Really nice demo that I hope gets fleshed out more. The old school design seems to play well, and the soccer ball "puzzle" was actually pretty neat. Plus it got a good scare or 2 out of me which most of my recent games haven't been able to do.
Really enjoyed the demo. Can't wait to see the finished game!
Don't Drop Cross
I feel there's a lot of opportunity in this game. Was I correct in thinking that a main mechanic would be physically moving things with the player? if so I think friction on objects should be reduced a touch. A tip on creating good scares would be restricting camera view a bit. Otherwise this seems like a good basis!
