I had a good time playing your game, Never usually do shooters with mouse & keyboard but I didn't do too bad, Thanks for making the game.
The Fire of '98
A downloadable game for Windows
Years ago, a whole city block burned down in the Fire of '98. Investigators ruled it was a tragic accident and it lives on as an unfortunate accident for the locals in the area.
But the recently discovered bodycam footage of Constable Kenneth Abbey, a rookie police officer who follows the trail to find out what really happened back in the Fire of '98, tells a different story...
The Fire of '98 is a short psychological horror-shooter. It takes approximately 30 minutes to complete. It is recommended to play this game with headphones in a dark environment.
Health Warning: This game contains bright flashing lights in areas at intense contrast. It is recommended those with photosensitivity proceed at your own risk.
Content Warning: This game contains depictions of institutional violence, violence with firearms, and disturbing or unsettling imagery.

thanks for the game,cool graphic and plot twist story. But for some reason after i finished the game, i have a message from you, sadly, i can't open the message. idk why?
Intresting world building. Really got into it the more I got to hear about what was happening. It wasn't as spooky to me as it could've been. After the third encounter I learnt how to survive without a problem. Normal enemies = shoot; Slow Lady = Run. And that was it. But as a solo project I really enjoyed it. A fun shooter with cool stor

This was honestly a solid game, although short, it is intriguing, intense and straight up fun to play, congrats to yall
btw,prop's to you guys for the low end support
WAS THAT THE FIRE OF '98????
good game, btw
It was interesting and pretty unexpectable. I mean, it was pretty obvious that something's off (it's a horror game duh) but I didn't expect some kind of a ghost story. Two things though. First, it should be either night vision or flashlight. Both just won't work. And second, if you start the game over (I restarted it once), all the ammo you picked up remains. So I was pretty much ready for a little army. Nonetheless, it was enjoyable!
Really enjoyed this one guys its hard to make a game scary even with a weapon but you pulled it off, great job i loved this! :D
AMAZING HORROR GAME DEV
Solid work for your foray into horror. Even though it was a bit key hunt heavy, it’s more then forgiven by the tense gameplay and story. Nice to see a horror game that isn’t just Generic Unity Horror Game(tm). On the contrary, one with a unique story and gameplay were you fight back.
Also, loved your personal message and your highlight of others.
For your first horror outing this is pretty solid I thought, and I have to give a huge commendation for how you credited everyone who's work was used in the game.
I like your game
Nice little horror FPS
so cool story and nice shooter
