After School is a horror game where you're the last one at school, so you decide to take the stairs because it's leg day. While the first half of the game sees you exploring one of the floors of the school for a few minutes, the game really picks up doing the middle stairs section. Akin to something straight out of an SCP fiction, the farther down the stairs you go, the more intense the sounds get, the lights go off, your breathing gets louder, the stairs seem to just never end, all culminating to the monster of the game scaring you back up the way you came. Upon escaping, you find out that you never really escaped.
This game was deceptively scary; it builds upon the atmosphere of just walking downstairs that it lulls you deeper and deeper into anticipation until playing off of that. While the chase may seem cliché, the first playthrough will definitely be enough to have you shaken for a bit. The beauty of it is that, because of it's length, the time investment compared to the reward feels justified entirely. For those astute players that take time to search the environment while being chased, you may even find some more of a puzzle to be uncovered through this game (and future games by SirCartaux!)
All in all, for a short horror game, After School does just enough to do what it wanted to do in its short runtime. The game doesn't overstay its welcome, and leaves breadcrumbs for the player to continue an ARG after it's completed
The game looks simple yet the horror was subtle, though the jumpscare ruined it for me.
And no, I'm just an enjoyer. Not content creator(s).
Interesting game. Quite creepy. Lots of tension.
When I was younger, I found time After School being a fairly creepy experience, so it was a no brainer to try this game! I think overall I found myself pretty terrified with this game and the build up/suspense really did get me in the end. I do feel like there could of been a bit more setup/story to the game to really fully understand the ending. But overall thought it was a creepy experience!
Loved it :D Reminded me of how creepy my school was after hours lol We were certain there was a demon living there xD
Solid game with a really spooky atmosphere.
Check out my playthrough. 😳
Creepy and unsettling, quite literally from you're initial startup of exploring the school. Also nice reference to SCP-087 :D (2nd game I played at 5:06 )
That was Epic but short. 4/5 :)
yoo, i like this game
Game starts at 3:40. Genuinely wasn't it expecting to go the way it did. A disguise for the prize as I'd like to say. The ambiance really added to the experience and the ending Genuinely scared the life out of me. Best of love
Can be quite scary at times, though a short horror game. Playtime is around 5-7 minutes.
My thoughts on the game:
- A bit too short for my taste.
- I wish there was more to the story.
- Some of the jumpscares seem cheap.
- Scared me quite a few times!
- I assume it took inspiration from that one stairs SCP.
- For a short horror/scary experience this has been executed quite well!
Overall, I enjoyed the experience. Great work! :)
Very nice game! I played and enjoyed it!
Pretty short and neat game, honestly. I wasn't expecting this to have the staircase in it and feel like 087!
I made a video. 1st game.
One of my favorite SCP 087 games!
Somebody come get this man!
A fun way to spend a few minutes! Gave me SCP vibes in the stairwell, and it got me embarassingly bad with one of the scares.
Nah this game was great dude. It scared me beyond beleif lmaooo
Heres a video I did on the game
Just played the game, and holy crap I felt very uneasy for so long as I was climbing down the stairs. The game may be short but I enjoyed it. Keep up the good work, SirCartaux.
However as a horror game I enjoyed it! Sh*t my pants going down those stairs, which I've dubbed the staircase from hell.
Check out my video.
Dude, I'm gonna be completely honest with you, I usually don't comment on people's games within the itchio comments section, but... YOUR GAME WAS SO FU@#IN SCARY. My god man, you sir are a genius. Even the concept of running away from a tall demon looking guy like that and having to run up so many stairs is terrifying. I made a video on it and after playing this game, I think I'ma take a break from playing scary games, cause this sh*t was just too much for me.
found the code but the pastebin was sadly removed now, still a fun game though
really enjoyed this game is was short but sweet i also managed to uncover the secret in the game if your interested watch my gameplay of this below
se nota que esta basado en el scp 087 y esta genial
cool game dude and on a little side note here I've been thinking of a game premise and I've made some concept art for it and i was wondering if maybe you could help me with it like you would be my partner in game development or something. just a thought :)
I died once, but I figured out the stairs thing fast the second go around! xD I really enjoyed this. Short, spooky and the jumpscare was fun. Good job dev!
