game story: Derek, a typical security guard at a warehouse, was driving home from work one foggy night. The fog itself is impenetrable and cold on this long torpid winding road. Suddenly, out of no where, a masked figure with a long black robe appeared out of no where. Swerving off the road to avoid hitting it, Derek veered down an embankment striking a tree and fell unconscious.

Derek later awoke still in the pitch blackness of the night trying to piece together what had just happened and if he was even alive. He looks around trying to get an ideal of where he is but the fog is so dense. He feels around and finds a flash light in the glove compartment. Derek opens the door and climbs out to asses the damages of his vehicle as well as to see how far off the road he veered from. He’s screwed! His entire front end of his car is completely wrecked from the crash and will not start, let alone turn on. But Shhhh… In the mist of the dense fog is a horrifying growl; but from what beast? His heart skips beats in terror.

It’s getting closer and louder. It sounds hungry or angry. Derek can hear from a small distance leaves ruffling and can tell that this beast is no small animal. Quickly he makes a run for it in the opposing direction of the growl hoping to escape it. He thinks to himself, could this be the same thing he saw on the road before he crashed? He knew he didn’t want to stop and find out.

Running, for what seemed like forever, he makes it out of the woods and onto an open field and stops running. then fire rises around him blocking his every direction.then the grim reaper appears out of no where in front of him.




this is the full game enjoy.
this game has been updated for improvement. the loading and other things are a lot better.

I'm having a problem. The second level won't load. The loading meter is stuck at the very end.

But the start really got me interested. I don't know what to expect from this.

alright finally some feed back.
@Metal Devil123 I dont know why you can't load the second level but I do have one ideal. did you die in the first level then tried to play again. if so beat the house level without dieing and the second should load just fine. something happens with fpsc when you reload it after the game is over. so for who die in the first level just exit out of the game and launch it again. you dont have to exit the Vishnu Packer just the game. I have clean as many bugs as I could but fpsc is known for these type of issues. i played the whole game on both of my computers one a 64 bit and the other is a 32bit. this game has been tested on other computers as well. which took the release of it longer. but I hope it works for you because the next levels if you can pass them are good. thanks for playing.

@GeuRCrayon Im glad you like it that is great feed back as I put a lot of time into this game.now for the second level the keys are in the classrooms green cabinets. each key is assign to a different door. I will give you this tip the last key is in the first classroom on the right but to open that door you get the the key for that door on the other side of the school. sorry cant tell you where then this will not be fun anymore.thanks for the video I hope you can get far in this game.

for all who play this i may have went a bit far in making this game hard to beat. my friend could not beat the first level as well. the reason for this i felt fpsc ai lacks and that would ruin the game play. so to make up for it I made it challenging. if any did get far will know the gun is limited. meaning you will have to know when and when not to use the gun and use the crowbar instead. i have to put out more tips. because want everyone to see the work that was put into making this game. I dont think its the best fpsc game made but it is one of the best fpsc game with a different style to it. well cant wait to get more feed back on this as i am working on some other ideas for this.

Well, seeing how in the first level you just walk up to the grim reaper and talk to him, I don't even know how you could die. But I see you're not counting that as the first actual level. In that case: The first level won't load.

So I did give this a shot. Made it to the 2nd level after the reaper scene and promptly died to the first zombie .

Found combat quite difficult
(but that's because my silly man-ness told me I don't need to read no stinkin manual so I missed the part about how to dual-wield! So there I am frantically switching between clicking the light and flailing my crowbar around in the darkness... lol).

Anyway, I liked your level Layout and entity placement. However, some of the rooms still felt huge and cavernous with a lot of empty space (especially that storage/boiler room, where the last door is), whereas a house would be a little more populated.
I think what you had there was great, especially the foyer and dining room, so instead of populating the rooms with more stuff, make some of those emptyish rooms a little smaller.

I'll give this another proper play now that I'm aware that dual wielding is indeed a thing and how to do it.

I'll let you know how it goes!

Sorry, but I cannot be bothered to click 3 different links just to get to the page to download this. That's one of my pet peeves about the internet. Why can't people just put up a link that takes you straight to downloading?

Unfortunately, game crashes at the end of first level, so I can't rate it adequately. But "abandoned school" is fine) IMHO, if monsters were more dangerous, respawns and player had less HPs, game would become more "survivish".

Try to run it on another PC later. I really want to see, what's next))
