On the backroads of West Texas, a man returns home to the family ranch, the Circle C. Upon arriving he finds that all but his brother have been slaughtered by aliens, cryptid monsters and faceless horrors. He must now find his only surviving family and take back his land!

The Ranch was made for the RETROMANIA event celebrating RMN's 10TH anniversary! It is a semi-maze fake 3d DOOM inspired first person survival horror game with light RPG elements.

The Ranch was created in under 5 days or so and maybe will be expanded in the future!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY RMN! :)

Man, as someone who's also attempted a first person rpg horror at some point I know it's pretty hard, so I look forward to seeing how this plays out.

I knooow, I'm still away from my computer. Y'all can find the download on the event page in the meantime ^.^
I made it to the end!

I love the atmosphere and level design. Areas are fairly easy to map in your mind and not too labyrinthine.
I think that the difficulty and its curve are excellent. I died a handful of times but tried a different approach each time and made it to the end.

Some thoughts about the specific areas:
Area 1: Nicely done. Not too difficult and allows the player to get used to the gameplay.
Area 2: This is where I first died. I figured that it was best to run for the exit and avoid enemies.
Area 3: Not too hard either. I caught a bit of a breather before the brutal Area 4.
Area 4: This place was really intense. The enemies are really strong and it's best to avoid them again but the narrow areas make it difficult. There's a nice jump scare as well. This area was the most difficult but I really loved it.
Area 5: Not too hard as long as I avoided unnecessary fights. I also liked the final stretch after you find your brother.


I ran into a couple of bugs that shutdown the game for an unknown reason. It happened as I was walking in Areas 1 and 4. So I took the habit of saving very often.

I'd be down for playing a longer version with more features, such as the possibility to camp and recover fully, find better weapons and defense-boosting gear, attack items like fuel cans, etc.

Overall, this short game shows a promising and well-executed concept.
Good job!

Thank you so much, Avee! :D I too encountered the crashing a few times in my testing and could never quite replicate it. I should add a disclaimer to save often, which I did too.

I definitely would love to expand this, I didn't want to make it too long to start with because I wasn't sure if the gameplay worked well with the environment, but I'm glad you liked it, that means a lot! More weapons, interactive stuff to mess weith, like camping for example. I would love to figure out some skills too.

I really appreciate the feedback! ^.^ And hopefully you won't have seen the last of this game!
Cool! I'll keep an eye on this project

Sorry for the delay! But I got the event version uploaded. I'll update the download when I can with some small additions and fixes!

So, at least now people can find it here ^.^

@Avee- Yay :D
I've really enjoyed it, haven't managed to beat level 5 yet. Don't have enough healing items and everything kills me in a hit. Will need to go back and try to optimize my level 4 run.

I wouldn't mind some sort of automap that get filled in as you explore. Got a bit turned around here and there, specially on level 4. Also nice to know if you missed exploring some area.

Thank you, Momeka ^.^
Yeah, since some numbers are set and no randoms, you can be pretty hurt by time Level 5.

Hmm, a map would be nice! I thought the same thing, I might actually add one now that the event is over :)
