this game really freaked me out badly there's just something about things that crawl on the ground that really creep me out but i really enjoyed this though really good game 

i love the vhs style

loved this one ! 

i really enjoyed this game, keep up the good work devs

Olá, venho através desse texto dizer que simplesmente amei demais esse jogo, fiz uma gameplay e tomei alguns sustos que me deixou bem satisfeito. FIca aqui minha recomendação, não só pra assistir essa gameplay, como também pra jogar e sentir essa experiencia incrivel que é desse jogo. Sucesso a todos que fizeram também gameplays, Tamo juntos.

I HATED THIS!!! Not the game but the feeling of being locked in and shoehorned into tight dead ends.

Well Done

hi, big thx for the game. greetings from rosti 😀

В целом неплохо, но контрольных точек с сохранением не хватает

Nice Concept


Sup guys,  Your game was scary as hell, fun, and unique. The monsters where scary and loud, I loved when I was just walking in the dark and all I hear a few feet in front of me was a monster screaming and about to rip me to pieces, I ran for my life! The only thing I didn't like was the water part where the giant snake could just see you an run you down while you are walking super slow trying to get away. I still enjoyed the game and I honestly thing it was a really good short game, please keep up the hard work an I can't wait to play more of your guys games next. p.s. I made a lets play of your game I hope you don't mind.

Tho I'm not the biggest fan of maze type games (simply because I suck at them) I gotta say this was cool. Though I'll admit it did irritated me just slightly still it was FUN!! 


This game scared the crap out of me!! I had to stop playing it, its very unsettling! Great game!

What will I find, and will I make it out? Check it out and subscribe!

SKIP TO 25:44!!!

had fun on this game


Thanks for playing pTs42!

Thanks for playing Ty View!

Thanks for playing LadyTenJoin!

Thanks for playing Gerald Jones!

Very interesting horror game! Though I would admit there are some improvements to be made:

- Having the enemies attacks be more climactic (Screen shake, etc..), it just seems so dull at the moment.

- Having things such as keys glow a bit, as the static makes it a bit hard to notice sometimes.

- A way to outrun the snake by giving it rats to eat.

Thanks for feedback and thanks for playing!


Прохождение на русском, игра ОГОНЬ!

I went back in to take on the crawler and got no damage. I  think I  am ready for the crawler part 2!!

Very scary, very fun, VERY annoying!! Took me 4 hours to beat! Still fun tho, at least it is once you find the first hidden door!

Bruh.... the game is aesthetically pleasing and definitely creepy.   I do think it could use some improvement . I got really frustrated with  the aimless wandering. Maybe some sort of guidance system? Like the player has to draw their own map or something? Not sure. Otherwise, dope game! Deserves a part 2 for sure!

The drawing your own map Idea is an amazing idea!!

I really liked this game! It was so fun and an awesome addition to my channel. I found progressing in the second part of this game was a bit hard to find but that could just be me lol. I would definitely recommend this one. Thanks for the amazing game 

This game is a creepy one for sure! I love the VHS style and it's done really well! Crawlerphobia is defiantly worth the play!


I love it. Still need to play more =).


Hello, we playerd your games recently in 1scGames and we really liked them. would you be interested in publishing a game on our newly made launcher DigitaLl?

the presentation of this was really nice but I wish there was some mechanic that helped find items.

Hi there, I think the look and feel of the game are great but damn, I am so bad at maze/running games, I didn’t even make it close to the end and had to give up. I wish it was easier to escape/hide so I could explore a bit, because as it was, I was basically running in panic mode the entire time (got killed once without even seeing the monster, so this didn’t help me in my frantic state, lol). But seeing the other reviews, I guess that’s all because I just suck at these kind of games and I accept that. 

Like many, I did not finish this game but still had fun. Reminded me of when I was a teenager and used to do stupid stuff like crawl into water drainage pipes. Part 2 of my vid for whomever is interested.

Gameplay BR
Jogo bom, só que fiquei uns 20 minutos andando até achar a entrada certa para progredir...

I couldn't do it. I've played an ungodly amount of horror games but this was too much for me. Bravo game makers!

Is there anything worse than crawling inside narrow tunnels?..

We genuinely thought this game was scary. We also had a lot of fun with it!! 

Hello! I played it and i actually really enjoyed it! i might be coming back to it because i died right at the end and there was no save system so i went all the way to the beginning so thats the only thing i think should be changed. But other then that this was amazing! It had great atmosphere scares and sounds so good job! heres the playthrough if you wanna see! 

Ignore the spelling mistake in my thumbnail. Though don't ignore my reaction. That is not a mistake because playing the game was! Too much for me

Hi there, Azaxor! First of all, I think this was one of the better free horror games I've played. The game's atmosphere was fairly decent.  Although, I feel as though it was ruined by the cryptid's janky behavior.

And I know that it is the point of the game but is there a way to lower the filter. The filter effect on the screenshots looks fine but in the game, it is terrible. It is hard to see and it's difficult to be scared of something if you can't see what's in front of you. Maybe that's just me. I can't wait to see what you have in store next.

I did do a playthrough of it on my channel. Check it out whenever.
