Looking forward to episode 3

We might have to go back and get a better ending but we really enjoyed your game!

I loved the first one, and very much enjoyed this one as well. As a second episode you definitely delivered. Stranger Danger, indeed.


I absolutely loved this, completely blew the first game out of the water!

Even better than the last! Also love how more extended it is!

More gameplay = more SPOOKS!

I had a lot of fun playing this game  and loved the mic mechanic and I hope it鈥檚 used more in the future

Played this on my channel. Great game although I liked the  first episode more this was still a great game. Head over to my channel to check out the full review and gameplay :) 

Part one of our playthrough! Great work it was a lot of fun! cant wait for more chapters in the future! 

Loved it! Can't wait for the next episode

This episode is a big step up from the last, which is saying a lot because that was good! This was genuinely terrifying at times and very atmospheric! 

You can check out some gameplay below:

SOMEONE IS BREAKING INTO MY MOTEL ROOM! | Fears To Fathom: Norwood Hitchhike

Tbh this is a big improvement from the first episode. Keep it up! 10/10

Super Cool. 5/5

I have soo many questions!!! I feel like there was more than one culprit! But I truly love the concept of people sharing their spooky stories through gameplay! It sets a tone for the initial experience from the git! Here's Ep - 1!

Great Work!

OHH my Goshh ... did he just..

GOT ME AT THE END

love your content. the build up was intense and the mic feature was surprising and i loved it. keep up the good work!! cant wait for more episodes!!

Loved the driving feature, managed to break the game hitting a tree 馃槀馃憣

Looking forward to chapter 3...

Such an incredible story. I really enjoyed the suspense this game left you in while traveling through Norwood Valley. Episode 2 was killer! Cannot wait for the third!

Video of gameplay! Enjoy and please give it a go yourself!


A wonderful follow-up to the first episode in the Fears to Fathom series so far. What really brings these games together is the pure terror of the real-life situations and stories told within the narrative here. Been excited since Ep 1, loved Ep2, and can't wait for Ep 3 to release in the future!

Loved playing this game a lot. Very well made and the storyline was interesting. Can't wait for the next episodes. Here's my funny gameplay (PLEASE CHECK OUT) 

It looks like the game generates events randomly cause I played twice and it was completely different... Loved it <3 

Loved it.  The beginning and driving parts were kind of slow, but such a great payoff.

Better than episode 1. Worth more than $3, WILL be playing the next one. Scared the hell out of me!

A really great follow-up. 

I got intense motion sickness in THE scene (don鈥檛 want to spoil it for others) but I still think it was genius, really well done and it made me incredibly uncomfortable. That alone was such a nightmarish scenario, I don't think I've seen it done this well in an indie horror game before. 

I think the longer game made some minor issues of the first one more visible (I think this game would profit a lot from voice over, since I missed a bit of text because I was busy with other things like driving or following weirdos & the story triggers were not also 100% clear) but it also showed why this anthology is such a great idea. Your pacing is so good and I think it pays that everything is somewhat sinister and detailed, even if it's harmless in the end (or is it?). 

These two episodes made me look forward to the next ones, this is such a winner. 


I liked the buildup and the change of settings from a middle of nowhere road to gas station to motel.

i knew it was over as soon as i didnt get gas at the gas station...

I have been PATIENTLY waiting for episode 2 to come out.


LOVED IT! I thought Home Alone was terrifying, and this just took it to the next level. Super scary, jumpscares and creepyness aplenty.


Check out my video

Another good Fears to Fathom Episode, this one reminds me a bit of Night Shift by Puppet Combo, cant wait for the next one!

Full Playthrough No Commentary 

Home Alone was amazing and spooky af! This one was even scarier! Cant wait for another one! 

I loved Episode 1, so when I saw that Episode 2 had released- I quite literally came out of a hiatus to play it, haha. This story was equally as engaging and I loved how it kept you guessing which direction it would turn next. I can't wait to see what the next episodes have in store! Thanks for making such great games, I'm a huge fan.

Amazing game! Made me scream like a bi%ch tho...

Man, these games are terrifying! I love the dense dread and atmosphere the entire time!

Yes! Another absolutely awesome game! Atmosphere was perfect. Well, done! Game here: 

Please subscribe!!

Just like the first game, you had me on edge! Everything about this was incredible! The atmosphere was tense and creepy, the buildup was amazing, and the scares were great! An amazing game! I look forward to more episodes!

I had a great time playing ep 2 and managed to get 2 endings, both good and bad ;) cant wait for ep 3 xD

This is INSANE!
