OK that last part caught me completely off guard. I'm extremely impressed. Wow.
A downloadable game for Windows
"My resolve in returning here has all but faltered, but I must escape... while I still have the chance."
EDEN is a horror game unlike any other; rejecting the tired clichés of gore and jumpscares. Instead, everything is in service of the overall atmosphere: a surreal dreamscape that unravels the further one delves into it.
A cross between P.T. with Edith Finch and The Stanley Parable, the surreal experience of EDEN pushes the boundaries and delivers a unique take on the genre. Just what that entails, well... that's for you to discover.
- Over an hour of branching gameplay
- Multiple, unique endings
- An ever-shifting environment that reacts to the player
- Beautifully realised art style that forms the dreamscape
- Subtle, environmental horror with strong visual design
- Rich sound design that contributes to immersion
- Fully diegetic - no UI and no "gamey" elements like timers or a healthbar
- Cyclical narrative structure told through gameplay interactions and the environment
Developed over a few months by a six-person graduate team, EDEN is now available for you to play. Be wary, however, that once you enter its halls, you may not be able to escape. Welcome home.

Is the game finished and needs no more updates?
A great game.
I went into this game quite doubtful about it, I'm not sure why, but I've got to say I really enjoyed my time with it!
It was a lot of fun finding all the different things that can happen while wondering around. But for me, the real amazing part (trying to avoid spoilers) was the "end game".
Really blew me away how creative and interesting it was!
Here's my video for those interested:
Another beautiful Windows-only game. Hope you release a Linux version some day.
mac version please? looks like a beautiful game but i cant play it because i have a mac :(
What makes this game Different?
As much as this game made me sick ( like when you get car sick ) It was very different and very cool, thank you!
I was not the first. I will not be the last.
Got a bit lost at the end. Good job!
amazing full of surprises
This game creeped my out good
This game was a trip but it was amazing!
Gave it a go...
This was a very cool horror game! the atmosphere was really good too!
VERY Verry laggy, please put out a low graphics mode for us with shitty computers
Very strange and very interesting. I loved the narration. The whole thing reminded me of Layers of Fear!
Played this for a random indie horror video and thought it was really cool. There were some pretty bad frame rate issues here and there, But i think it was the game loading new areas for the first time. If you'd like to watch my playthrough of the game, you can below. I probably didn't see a lot but i played as much as i was happy with. Btw, what engine did you use to make this game?
This is such a cool game! I love the changing environments. This has the feel of a triple A title. Here's my playthrough:
Hey! if you like slenderman games, check my own
fan game, i'm hard working on and i'd like to
show it to all fans!
hi, big thx for the great experience. greetings from rosti
This was a very interesting and well thought out game. Thank you for developing and sharing it with us! Here's my playthrough, if anybody's interested.
the train section reminds me of the game i am working on ahah great job
such an interesting game and really amazing, very well done <3
Cool game, i really like the crazy randomness. I'm not however, a fan of the "glitch/hacking your computer" games.
Danger! This game has already been designed by me personally to try to access my data, I tried to circumvent the security of my PC, things are not done like this, I do NOT recommend this game to anyone, what I recommend is my YouTube channel "Placebogamer" , I thank everyone who subscribes to my channel:https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7Ze0stcmF5zKGiRwGj2RJA?sub_confirmation=1
We love the enthusiasm however you weren't involved in designing this game. Plus don't worry it doesn't access your data just creates its own
why is your game so invasive? I can understand it wanting to be able to use notepad, but why was it trying to get at my antivirus and malware software?
It shouldn't have been trying to, it may, like most games, ask for permission to pass through the firewall to read/write data etc but it won't change any settings or programs
This game was awesome to play and extremely trippy (in all the right ways) I loved it, I'll admit I was lost at some points with the story BUT I feel that worked for it and made it a great "think about game" for when you finish it FULLY... more people need to get the real ending and experience what I'm talking about (P.S. Shout out to Nathan for helping me get the real ending)
If you wanna see a full complete play though then check my video out!!
Awesome game guys!!
A very unique experience indeed. And I was really not prepared for that ending!
Hi there, I am a youtuber and I hope to get some support from you guys by leaving a like and subscribe at my channel.
This is actually my first time coming across a surreal horror game and the theme of surrealism is part of what I love as well so I think the creators did a good job in portraying the element of surrealism in the horror game EDEN. Some improvements for this game could be making the characters in the game look more realistic or look better as the characters in te game currently looks slightly rough on the edges. Moreover, I am pretty sure I did not complete the game and maybe many others did not complete the game as well. For me, I stopped playing as I had no idea what I was supposed to do next and there wasn't really a motive or aim provided for me to continue so I hope that maybe there is some way to tell the player that something is waiting for the player at the end of the tunnel because I thought that the game had ended and was just looping.
Thank you for reading my comment. This was an amazing and interesting game that I really enjoyed. Hope to see more horror games like this in the future from you :).
Thanks for the feedback!
A large part of the game's theme is about control so we tried to employ that as many aspects of the game as we felt needed, for example that's why the character's movements are rigid and exaggerated, it was intended to seem like something was mimicking how people walk with the player's body.
If we had more time with the project we definitely would've leaned further into giving you more motivation to explore the halls however we were walking a fine line with also trying to balance the feel of being completely lost and wondering what the $#*^ could come next.
But alas that'll be for another game
P.S. Great video, would've loved to have seen your reaction to some of the areas though
Thanks for reading my comment. I would love to show you my reaction but I prefer to remain annoymous for now XDDDD. If you remember me, be sure to notify me when more of your new games come out :).
Amazing game dev had so much fun playing it :) i hope you enjoy my gameplay
Really neat stuff, loved the way this played, it was very original and would be excellent as a longer length experience too. I was a little mystified by the actual narrative though, and I'm still not entirely sure if I've reached the actual "end". Either way, it was a great little experience well worth checking out.
Cheers and the actual end is one of the few things in the game which is very clear cut, you won't get very much closure from it though as sticking with the lovecraftian/cosmic horror aspects of the game, the descent is in more than just the story
Im at a loss of words...
this game have lot secret . lol
Game is great but what type of glitch or error, may be a virus or something. Note pad opening so many times on his own and not letting me to close. -_-
