A downloadable game for Windows


DO NOT TAKE YOUR EYES AWAY FROM THE RED FRIDGE is a collection of small first-person horror games with experimental mechanics inspired by SCP, Twilight Zone, and PS1-era horror games.

Key Features:

  • An unconventional approach to horror games.
  • Multiple stories in one game.
  • Retro styling.

We named the game after the first story of our anthology.
All you have to do is sit in your chair and keep looking at the fridge, or there will be consequences. However, it's not that easy.


The story began a few weeks ago when Frank and his daughter Lorie moved into an old house. The previous owner of the house had disappeared under unclear circumstances.

One day, Frank found Lorie's favorite doll and crayons near the old red fridge in the basement. The fridge turned out to possess otherworldly power, and anyone who looks away from it will no longer see daylight.

Frank has been sitting in the basement looking at the red fridge for several days already. Yet not only the fear of a terrible death keeps him in the basement, but also the hope of getting his daughter back.

You can already download the first chapter as a demo.

Very interesting demo and shows a lot of potential . Unsure of the actual story though. Overall I did enjoy it and look forward to the release :)

Un juego corto, pero el sonido, y toda la historia oculta hacen de este juego una experiencia bastante entretenida y divertida para jugar en stream. Esperando mas partes :D

This was a fun short horror game! Excellent use of a fridge monster.

BUT BUT BUT WHAT IF I LOVE THE FRIDGE?! GAME STARTS AT 48:03

Gotta say though I don't know if you can "win" I sure as hell had a fun time fucking around with this Red Fridge or as I called him GARRY!!

Thank you. I enjoyed this.

Very cool and original concept, I loved it!!

9 out of 10 times I avoid games with some spook in them. This one I could not resist. Amusing premise and the right execution of the idea.



(+1)

I like the horror will try

( Your game begins at 08:28 )

Sometimes, I stumble upon games that get me immediately interested from title alone. This is one of them.

The premise is brilliant and hilarious, although I found the mechanics for moving things took surprisingly long to find out and get to work properly, and I wish there was sa bit more of an ending.


But those are gripes. The game in and f itself is deliciously bizarre, and I love the concept!

(+1)

I pleyed this game with ghost study and let me just say i'm not buying a red fridge and i'll think twice when I see a red fridge in someones house! Come and see how it went in our end. 

(+1)

This was hiliarious little game, I had some control troubles which made my playthrough more funny! 

(+1)

This is a really good game!

(+1)

I love the atmosphere in this game! Really spoopy and creepy. I think I ran into a bug where I could not move any objects though. Was I doing something wrong? Otherwise, it is a dope game!
(+2)

Play this late at night...it'll make you work for it. Def enjoyed this one quite a bit

A fun little game. Loved the idea and the atmosphere.

(+2)

I've never been soo engaged to search for the D before hahaha I swear, the feeling you have inside when you have to look away for an extensive amount of time just eats away at you. Like my world is falling apart every time I turn my back lol. Love how this turned out!

Great work!

This game had TENSION!

(+1)

The sound design in this game is so good! Hair stands on end everytime I Look away.

No Commentary All Notes

Never thought I'd be scared to look away from a fridge, a red one no less, but here we are. The only thing I wanted to comment on this game is that the really could've been another button to pick things up. Like "e" or something instead of LMB hold, otherwise great little short game.

(+2)

Developing a fear of fridges will no doubt help my new year's resolution - dieting. Love the concept and thicc atmosphere

My gameplay if anyone is interested and review ~14:50:

(+1)

Very cool concept! Starts at 12:00.
