The Long Road Back is a new game in development by myself, which combines the intensity of both atmospheric Horror and first person shooting into a pulsating and suspenseful thrill ride. Ammo is limited, death can be just around the corner... Every shot fired needs to be wise, even reloading at the wrong time could mean the end, can you survive The Long Road Back?

Very enjoyable



This game was  fire!๐Ÿ”ฅ I enjoyed it over all, and the jump scares were always very effective ๐Ÿ˜‚ good job dev ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ


Thanks man! Seen your playthrough, great stuff, noticed the Audio volume could use some tweaks, so will adjust that at some point in time, glad you enjoyed it! :D


REALLY ENJOYED THIS ONE! I love the low poly style and the sound design is awesome. I played through the whole demo in a video for my channel: 

Thanks Very much for the praise! Watched the full playthrough, good vid! The full game will probably take around a year or so to develop, I also plan on adding a few updates to the demo as game nears release. Also glad that it seems that the difficulty curve has a good balance, Cheers ๐Ÿ‘

I really enjoyed this game especially the jumpscares but I wasn't able to finish it. But I will probably try to give it another try! Keep Up The Good Work!

Thanks for playing! To be fair, was a good effort though! Also, cheers for positive feedback! 


Interesting demo, waiting for the full release.

Thanks ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘

Thanks very much, funny enough, I've since fixed the AI's path finding encounters that occurred during your play-through, thanks for playing and sharing, means a lot! :D 

PS: Hopefully come the final build, optimisation should be more efficient to run on various hardware, so it wont be as slow  


This was a really great game for some quick scares! I loved how you sort of had to conserve and be smart with your ammo! It's really unique and I love it :)

I played this in my video (starts at 5:42) and I was scared a LOT lol, but it's still a really great experience! Can't wait for more :)


Thanks for the positive feedback, glad to know that the horror aspect was nailed, cheers! ๐Ÿ‘

Another great game man! Sorry this took a bit to do. I was taking a breather from recording and editing. But here ya go!

Also I'm not using my normal setup so things are kinda weird.

No problem, good vid! Also will be adding updates to this one as time goes on, glad you liked this one too! ๐Ÿ‘


thanks man! ill definitely play it again if some updates come out for the game. Hopefully, I'll actually finish it :D

Show post...

Good Demo waiting for the full version. 4/5

Thanks Man ๐Ÿ‘


Wow.. I'm impressed! This is pretty damn good. It even made me jump a few times, and that rarely happens. Thanks for that, haha. Great job! I'd love to see more, or even a sequel.


Thanks very much man, If this does well, I plan on making it into a full game, I'll also likely update the demo as progress continues, cheers ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘
