A downloadable Demo Disc for Windows

Roused by the crackle of static, a lingering sense of dread crawls across the floor. You sit alone in your room. A dimly lit memory repeats in your head. 17 demos too horrible to describe keep you from your bed. Each one is a personally crafted nightmare. You've tried to tell others, no one understands. A CRT you don't remember owning flashes to life. Frozen in place you look upon the flickering screen to spy a dismal, bloodied scene. A cracked and faded jewel case sits close beside. A pale grey plastic box sits in front, emitting a low whirring noise. Will you take to the controller or let yourself be taken over?

Note:

The "Demo Disc" is not a physical disc (as amazing as that would be) as we don't have the time or resources to organise the can of worms that is monetization and physical production. We would need some sort of publisher to handle the money split and production if we were to sell a physical copy. There's also been some confusion over this, these games are all built on modern engines to evoke the feeling and aesthetic of late 90s games, the disk would not be able to run on any sort of hardware from the time. The demo disc is a free downloadable exe for Windows only. Supporting other operating systems would likely double or triple the work it took to organise the disc.

did two videos on some of the games here it is if you want to check it out 

all of them are good and worth checking out some of them are not very scary at all but are cool for there own reasons this is a great pack of games and I'm surprised at the ps1 feel every game really feels like a ps1 game its great truly one of the best games on itchio right now

Great game

Played Filthbreed on it's own, and I loved it. Unfortunately, I can't comment on the games page, so I'll comment here: 

Here's a video of my playthrough. Feel free to watch!

I know I'm hella late but with the shitshow year we've been having I'm only just editing footage from February . Whoops. 

I decided to start with Neko Yume and I intend to play my way through all the demos included to celebrate the spooky season 👻 [I recorded some new ones last night I swear]
I'd like to share all the videos here so I'll likely reply to this initial post rather than clogging up all the comments. Hope that's chill with everyone!

Killer Bees wasn't exactly what I expected it to be BUT it was a good time and somehow still managed to jump scare me because I constantly have the heebie jeebies.

Th

The third game is Tasty Ramen! How can a game be so cute and so tense!? I loved it!

For part 4 it's A Place, Forbidden and a lot of bad voice acting (from me)!

make a collection for game boy games

Played it and it was amazing loved all the games in the disk and all the graphics were nice and if you are having a problem with a file missing you need to save it or that worked for me.

Huge fan. It's a shame big companies dont take a page out of the books of developers like these. Open worlds and fancy graphics clearly aren't everything. I look forward to seeing the 2021 version!

RU review

I've downloaded this game a few times and everytime I have tried to start it up it doesn't take me to the main menu, it just plays the music and there's nothig but a black screen. I'm not sure if this issue is caused by my computer but if someone could help me out I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you so much for putting this together! I've been playing through them on my channel and it's been a blast so far, here's the first part!

Not Going To Lie It Looks Awesome, But I Feel Like Siren Head Should Have Made It Into This Game, But Overall It Looks Like Something That Could Have Made It On The PS1.

I really, really hope someone makes a collection of upcoming 3D platformers and stylizes it just like this. That would be so great.

Thank you for this awesome collection!
It should be great adding scanlines/crt filter for a perfect 90's trip.

I hope you'll make a new demo collection!

Keep it up! :)

A friend of mine is trying to play these, but the visuals are 3 times as blurry. According to them , everything looks like "blobs" and muddy. (Possibly because of the vintage filters)

Any ideas why this is happening to them??, I had no graphical glitches such as this. They have a 4k set-up and modern hardware.

I love the work you have placed in each and any one of these short yet amazing "haunted" video games, all good wishes to you and the team behind this magnificent project in these hard times. Love you and hope to see more in the future.

I reviewed all of the games. I enjoyed them very much! Thanks for making this!

(+1)

Really creative, fun to play, original. These aren't just filler, almost all of these are actual games that should be released soon.

(1 edit)

The game opened like 7 times the Ouroboros. You know what it is,  and on only one screen there was the menu with start etc. probably because I clicked on play several times lol

(1 edit)

I tried downloading the game and playing it but it says the Unityplayer.dll was not found, even though it's included in the folder. Maybe you guys could reupload the build? I wonder how we could fix this. Thanks!


GUD GAME

Something hilarious to watch while you're stuck at home

If this game runs into wine(Windows emulator) of linux operating system, I'll record something. But first I shall congratulations about that work, this one seemingly awesome. And hard to choose and compile many good 90's scenes and atmosphere in one game only. Well, I'm downloading right now, if it runs emulated properly, I return back here and drop post about my impressions and explore a bit this 90's thriller scenario. I wish for you conquest much more successful becoming a indie classic like others passed out by here. Have a good journey for you entrepreuneurship and never forget to do news about updates if need would be . We'll be lurking at this masterpiece intend over. I wish for you worthy success. I shall come back with a video demo if I could. <3

Here are my playthroughs of each game from the Haunted PS1 Demo Disk (I havent found the secret game yet sadly).

I enjoyed these a lot, I hope you'll do one of these next year as well.



Every time I launch the game it crashes. Does anybody have any tips to fix this?

Hi there! I love this game and it's style, and i was wondering if I could do some texture or title screen artwork for the demo games. Greatest salutations, -Superevan6

downloading the press kit erases the games...

Neko Yume is on hell of a- well game i guess.

Its an experience! 

Hey, nice demo disk, sadly that isn't physical...

I'm also making Sega Genesis Haunted Demo Cart!

You won't find another game like this!

Fatum Betula was a very unique game! Looking forward to the full thing!

Downloading now, this sounds like an amazing idea and concept!

Will you be holding a regular ganejam for more haunted ps1disks? Because that would be awesome!!

After playing 5 out of the 17 games (as of writing) 

and having playtested Effigy before, I can safely say that this has been a good time sink and would recommend it to anyone looking to get their horror fix. Here's part one of my video series.

I still have all the old disks too. There are tons of them!

What a great collection! You should definitely try this for yourself, but if you're curious what it looks like recorded on VHS, I've got you covered (spoiler: it looks great).
