A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

This is a scary short horror game inspired by TJoC (The Joy of Creation)

In Within Yourself, you are to complete a total of three stages. You are given clues throughout the game on what to do next to progress. 

This small game was really fun to make, and I hope you all enjoy playing it!

Controls: WASD - movement, F - toggle flashlight, Left Click - Interect, F11 - Fullscreen.

This game will likely not recieve updates, but I plan to make more horror games.

Link to TJoC: https://gamejolt.com/games/tjocsm/139218 you should really try out this game, its really good.

Install instructions

Windows: Extract the file and run the executable. If a pop-up appears, click on "more info" and "run anyway"

OSX: For mac users if the program says that it unable to run there may be a couple things you need to do.

 First open terminal and copy paste: xattr -cr

After doing that drag and drop the application into the line and then hit enter. The line should look something like: xattr -cr "pathname"

The game should now work.

This concept alone is terrifying, mix that in with the stress of solving a puzzle and we have the masterpiece that is this game. Your game is six minutes into this video :)

Great use of the mechanics and concept! Great graphics and game dev!

Litterally Was Scared The Entire Ga

The Anxiety Of This Game Is Insane!!!!


BRILLIANT. You got the FNAF/JOC vibe perfect! My anxiety was killing me trying to get through this, but it was so so much fun!

I enjoyed it. It was very well made but didn't have that atmosphere. The whole look and they won't move feature is easy to deal with, but can be done correctly. I liked this game and will be following the development of more of your games very closely. 

Hello! Recently, I played your game in my 3 Spooky Games video and I loved the atmosphere, re-capturing that aesthetic of The Joy of Creation (in which I hope to revisit some day). The only problem with this is... I swear I got the 2nd code right... but it kept telling me it wasn't... so I quit lol :P

(The last game I play)

Very scary and unnerving game. I died once in the color password room but I was able to beat the final room in my first try somehow.

Your game helped me get to where I am today thank you

This was so much fun (and scary)! You made a fantastic horror experience!

very fun game, had a blast playing it and an even better time editing it for laughs! 

Definitely had FNAF jump scare feels to it. Short and sweet game! This has a lot of potential and excited to see more of your work. Great work!!


This was a great game, need more like it

unfortunately couldn't finish the game, but nonetheless still pretty fun!

My Gameplay:

I truly do enjoy puzzle horror games were you have to think and escape while being scared

The concept of things moving when you are not looking at them, is, as always, mesmerizing. The cramped space you have to move in and through, only adds to a feeling of having to hurry onward, but do look back. Make sure you do. Loved the game, so kudos to all involved. You guys, just made my day :o]

loved the game so much, especially as a fnaf fan myself. wish this game is longer though, its very fun. Keep up the good work! 

OK WHO ARE YOU AND WHAT HAVE YOU DONE WITH THE DOCTOR YOU MONSTER!!! GOOD GAME I CANโ€™T WAIT FOR THE FULL GAME ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ

Very nice, overall very scary, the objective could do some work, overall gave me a good spazzin'. 


Super fun, super spooky! Canโ€™t wait to see what else this dev has to offer :)

Side note, can anyone tell me what the music box jingle that plays during the game is from? I know Iโ€™ve heard that tune somewhere and itโ€™s KILLING me lol

Thank you!!

I really liked the game! Keep up the good work.

I loved the game! 3 Levels with really good scares!

I think got a good tactic to get past the final stretch :D

I was looking for something short and spooky, this did the trick, nice game :)

It's the best game recently.

My voice is gradually becoming a high note.

creepy  robot , nice :)

Honestly was a very good horror game. I thoroughly enjoyed it and enjoyed creating the video just as much. I hope you continue with the game creation, definitely a lot of potential. โ™ฅ

hype in coming

Man such a simple concept and better than most games on Itch.io. Seriously a great game. Was quick and to the point and I love that. Genuinely scary too.

I LOVED THIS!  You can clearly see the inspiration taken from the FNAF series, and I'm here for it!  New to YouTube we are almost at 5000 subs!  Please feel free to check out my content I appreciate you!

Credits and much love to you, developer! Thank you for the AWESOME game. I can't wait for the next one. I get to play this in the Philippines!
