A downloadable game for Windows

Backwoods Massacre is a short horror game where you are the killer. You play as a mask-wearing, machete-wielding slasher who has a cabin full of campers and a sewer full of monsters, who all need eliminating.

The game is inspired by Friday the 13th and campy 80's horror/comedies. I made the game in 2 and a half weeks as a way to experiment with NPC/enemy animation and a few other things, it is also the first time that I've created cutscenes.

WARNING! this game contains nudity, however there is an option to censor it at the start of the game.

Don't ever jack me for my FERGUSON!!!!

Awesome video man! thanks for playing.

No, Thank you for creating the game brotha!!! Keep up the good work!!!

No problem! I'm working on a new horror game now, I don't have a release date for it yet but it'll be a bit more polished than backwoods massacre.

Awesome, confusing, a little weird, but good

Thanks for playing, sorry about objective 2 not showing, your not the only one to have that happen, I think it has something to do with screen resolution.

This was incredibly weird, fun, cute and bizarre all in one little package. Gameplay is pretty decent, though hit detection seemed to be a bit off sometimes but that added to the campyness of it all. Thanks for releasing this!

No problem! glad you liked it. sorry about the hit detection, I know it's a bit off, I'll do my best to make it better in future games.

That was lots of fun! Pretty well made and funny too. 

Thanks for the censor option, lot easier than having to go through and edit out the nudity :)

Thanks, good to hear! I'm not sure why the objectives weren't showing up at the bottom, I guess it might have had something to do with screen ratio but I'm not sure, I should probably have made sure that it wouldn't have been an issue when I was making it, sorry. The strange voice that can be heard is actually people talking on an airplane, I wanted tunnel ambiance but couldn't find any so airplane ambiance was the closes I could get haha.

My guess was office chatter for the ambiance :)

I played around a bit and the objective is visible on every resolution I can do except for 800*600 and 1600*900 (my monitors max). It is visible in all other resolutions and full screen vs windowed doesn't affect it. Kind of weird, those two don't have the same ratio and there are other options closer to the two of them that work fine. It's no big deal, but it's a curious problem just because all other text seems fine and I wonder if anyone else would see the same or if it's something goofy with my system.

Thanks for watching my video!

Cool idea for a game. I appreciate the censor option xD

Thanks man, I added in the censor option for people to be able to play it on YouTube without having the edit the video. Sorry about it crashing, I haven't seen it do that before.

GOOOOODD Muy divertido


Thanks!

Gave it a go...

Nice work Dev....Enjoyed every single sec of this game :D 

Thanks! glad to hear it.

Too much information, I think haha. Thats one interesting username btw...

This game is 20 minutes of solid fun! I loved it! I want to see more, and for how short it was it was actually really well thought out!😂 Also if you would consider featuring my video it would be much appreciated!

This was a lotta fun, I got a wee bit frustrated hunting the last 2 campers but otherwise great stuff 

Thanks! Awesome video, sorry about it being a bit frustrating, I'll keep in in mind for future games and for maybe even a sequel at some point.

It's all good man, I'm the kinda person who can get lost in an empty room with a single door :P

Don't worry, it's not just you, haha. I lost them a few times while I was testing it, I probably should have added in something to show where they were but I didn't want to spend too much time making this game as it was more of a test project.

The game is so good and funny. I really enjoy to play this game . 100% good game!

Thanks! glad you liked it.

(100% COMPLETE.) THIS MAN TOOK YOUR TOILET... WHAT YOU GONNA DO 'BOUT IT?

Glad you liked it, thanks for making the video!

Nice work for the 2.5 weeks. I like how you can see your character's mad face through the mask. :)

Thanks man! love the video. I do agree that the hit-detection/colliders (and a few other things) need work, maybe I'll fix it in a possible Backwoods Massacre 2 haha.

Backwoods Massacre 2 sounds like a must... the toilet was returned but.. what about that LCD TV in the cabin? What if that went missing? ;)

Haha, I guess we'll just have to wait and see!
