SAMHAIN is a survival horror rpg about a boy looking for his dad. Explore the many rooms of Hallow Manor, meet the residents who call it home, and the lost souls that can never leave. Eat candy to replenish health and don't forget to save... often. Plenty of secrets to uncover, and even more ways to die.

It is the middle of the night on the eve of Halloween. Your dad wakes you and says "we gotta go for a drive." It is a long drive and you fall asleep in the back seat of the car. You are sleeping until a crash of thunder disturbs you, and you realize that the car is parked and you are alone in it. Outside, you can see a forest of trees, a chain-link fence, and a huge, lumbering house. The nightmare has begun.


  • Over 10 different areas of the house to explore in the demo
  • Meet a musical ghost, reluctant werewolf, needy witch, hungry skeletons,  rude computer A.I. and more
  • nostalgic inventory system
  • Minimal chit chat
  • Mini games!
  • Gamepad support


  • Use headphones
  • Use lowest possible brightness
  • Leave auto dash off


  • Save feature may be broke. If it is, try making a new folder in the same directory as the game, and name it 'save' without the quotations. I'm still trying to find a fix that works for everybody.

Just downloaded this game today. I love the gameplay itself and its super creative and engaging. My only real complaint is that I cannot save at all and it is very frustrating having to replay the game repeatedly just to make any progress. Please look into the save mechanic. 


Oh mannn, i thought i fixed it.. anyways thanks for lettin me kno, im gonna find a fix for it right away. and, thanks for playin, glad ur enjoying it!

Big update, fixed alot of bugs, added stuff, and improved some cut scenes. thx to everyone for the support


I'm having a bit of trouble with getting Mr. A his head. I've tried to put every single pumpkin in the house on his head and it's not working. Do I have to light up the pumpkin that's not lit? Also, I noticed a little bug where whenever you put the box in front of the light so you can unlock the door you can walk around in the air a bit and get stuck. 

Hey thanks for lettin me kno. Ur supposed to use the pumpkin that aint lit up on Mr A, but the games super buggy. Idk why it wont work for u, im sorry. I will work to fix it tho

Thank you!! Just do your best on the game, it's super fun so far!

Fantastic game! The game does a great job creating atmosphere, 'awarding' players through exploration, and using fun + interesting puzzles. I had a great time playing this. Feel free to watch my play session below!

(btw, I had to play this a second time because OBS didn't record the audio on the first round. Regardless, it just shows how much I enjoyed it!)

Hey man, thanks for playin! I enjoyed ur video

:) :)

SAMHAIN v1.2 of the demo is out now. Adjusted game brightness and even added a brightness setting. Also fixed saving.


I gave the game a solid shot and the idea was solid. I just wish there was a bit of a "safe area" before actually getting into the thick of things. That and the fact that the lantern didn't light up far enough was a thing. But it's a solid start.
