This is a short horror-adventure game about being stuck on a train. Loosely based on a story of the same name I read on the internet. This game was submitted to MiniJam 47. The whole thing was written in C.

Didn't totally manage to finish it, but it was a great learning experience.

There's an ending now. Thanks for playing.

Oh, and I'm following you. BE PREPARED. I AM COMING TONIGHT IN YOUR SLEEP. I AM ARMED AND THE ONLY WAY TO DEFEAT ME- No wait- It's probably not a good idea to tell you how to destroy me. I'd be dropping a weapon into your hand! On the field of battle, aiding the enemy! Helping my- Aw, I ruined my own creepy-ish voiceover! Shit. *(CUPS HANDS OVER MOUTH NERVOUSLY)* (I am totally not 10 years old and already saying things like shit and fuck and bick and crap like that) *(LOOKS AROUND DERPISH/NERVOUS/STUPIDLY)*

My real name is Aravis. The first 'a' is pronounced the way you say the letter, the second 'a' is pronounced like you would say a short 'u'. My full name is really long... type back if you want me to type it because I'm really lazy so it might be a while and also, I don't want to fill 75 percent of the comment section.           A C H I V E M E N T  S A V E D ! 

Welp, been there, done that.

Thank you for making this game! Now I have a memory that I can cherish like a charm in my pocket. The memory will be like a video full of color and feelings and life. Only when you see a bird on the ground, fallen from a wire that served only as a murderous reason of existence, will you realize just how precious the miracle of life is. Mankind will have many troubles like food, shelter, family. But the greatest obstacle that could ever be, and ever be overcome, is love. 

Correction,

Wait...

This was an experience I will never forget!

GAMEPLAY WALKTHROUGH (POSTED FOR LAST TIME)

i enjoyed the game but there wasn't really a explanation of the spider kid

you should add a alternate ending where in the end after spinning 7 times you spin 7 more times and go back ya know it would be very appreciated

I really enjoyed this game espically the dark sequence when you see something move. Really well done i adore pixel games its charming. I wish it was longer to but when you have a really good game it is to be expected.

This game is such an interesting short game. I love how as you play that the characters drop subtle hints about what's going on. Of course, things are left open ended. These are the type of endings I like bc it leaves things open to interpretation.  I honestly recommend this game if you're a fan of pixel art side-scrolling games.  

Here's my playthrough of the game if you're interested! I play the game at the start of the video:
