Had to include a bonus game at the beginning but thought this was interesting! Gave me slight Stranger Things (in the Upside Down) vibes.
A downloadable game for Windows
Dia is a short free indie horror game.

This is a really great horror game. Although it broke a lot of promises that it stated in the beginning of the game. It has a nice creepy atmosphere throughout the entire game, and well made environment.
Ending is the best XD!!!!
I love(!) this game. Sounds made me nervous, I felt that everytime something was behind me. Amazing work!
damn that scared me to death xD. Its a really great game, good job :3, my name is Dia so it was even scarier the fact that my name was in the game lol, thank u for this experience!!
Even thought it was short. I really enjoyed the game.
llega a espantar pero es muy poco y sin historia de lo que yo entendi
Even though it was short I found it to be really interesting, I really enjoyed the environment and the atmosphere. Overall I loved playing this game, thanks for making it.
Great short horror game!!!
Buenos DIA! This game was super fun and the little spoops got the blood pumping!
Creepy environment but I like it :D
Interesting game, thanks for making it.
This was really interesting. This game is exactly what I love about short indie games, short and interesting thats all you need.
An interesting little game. We enjoyed it very much.
This game gave me much Silent Hill vibes! If that's not the direction you took the game, it still gave me them vibes. (First game I play and top video)
Thoroughly enjoyed my experience. I always enjoy horror games, specifically micro horror games and this one delivered by not being about jump scares and more about the environment and really is a great, slow burn horror game. Love it.
Hi! I just included yer game in my latest "Itch.io Horror Games" video! Hope ya enjoy!
Just skip to 0:18 to watch the part with your game in it!
*A little bit of a spoiler*
I'm just curious when does the girl say the user's name at the end. Is it by common name, a set of names, one syllable? Cause I only saw one guy whose name was actually said which was "Chris" but I watch a lot of videos and their's wasn't said, only typed.
Haha, glad you asked, the game is kinda set up so some youtubers would hear the custom recorded voice there at the end and see their name or full name. If you want to see some other people besides CJU (Chris) hearing his name, then the same thing is made for John Wolfe and MrKravin and also some of my friends that are smaller youtubers, like ScottishGeek Plays and Artic Jay.
This was really nicely done and I'm impressed on how much the dev has grown in the last couple of year! Good job improving your skills and story telling!
Love the game! I like the concept of this game, but there's a thing that bother me and scared me of the most... there's no door anywhere except the barbed wire gate.
My only major gripe with this game is the soundtrack used - the fact only one music is used (the music that abruptly stops all the time) made it extremely annoying. Apart from that, it was below good - could have improved on story and tone a lot more better.
You didn't like the song? I think the fast that this 10 minute game has its own soundtrack is pretty cool and I don't think there's even space to fit another song nicely into the game.
Unless you're talking about the sounds that you hear while you walk through the city. It was designed this way to change from noise to silence. Sorry if it was annoying to you.
Oh, I didn't mean the song - it was very fitting. Yes, the sound was the annoying part, unfortunately - it would have been fine, however, if it occured a few times/every so on - having it on repeat actually loses its effect, so if it were to occur a few times, it would have startled the player. But no, that's fine, you don't have to apologise, after all it is only an inconvenience to me and not to everyone
Very Unique style of game, I play DIA in the second part of the video:
Oh GAWD that thing at the end. So glad you didn't just cut to black like a lot of these indie games! I hope you enjoy the video I made on your game :)Can't wait to see what more you make!
Hey man, i really LOVE your game i hope you'll make the game a little bit more scarier. Cheers :)
Recently uploaded this video to YouTube where I play three horror games. “Dia” is one of them!
Check it out if you think you’d like it!
Really cool and scary game, a little short but I personally like horror games that aren't that long. Well done!
If you want to check out a video I made on it:
A fun little game. We enjoyed it very much. Maybe a little too short.
woah short but for me that was rather scary did have lil trouble running it the first time but change qualitu and it worked fine
Glad it worked in the end, thanks for playing!
Nice game, good experiecen. <3
Thank you for the awesome experience, I enjoyed your game and am glad I got to play it, I made a video on the game with my facecam :)
hey! I really want to play it as it look VERY interesting, but the game freezes 15-10 seconds in approximately. I don't know why :(
very nice game
Aamzing feat in building atmospherre and tension. Pretty good if confusing payoff at the end. Nice job!
Unexpected, the model for the character threw me off but I liked the pace and the ending!
Very nice game! Definitely different than what I as expecting!
Alright, The end got me. Didn't expect that or how it knew... Anyway, a short experience and fun :)
