Story of the Mirror

This is a short horror game that I developed for DarkTober Game Jam 2018 using the Pico-8 fantasy console. This game is not suited for children or those who are easily disturbed.


- Directional keys: move around

- Z: read stone tablets, talk to npc's


The objective of this game is to find the old mirror, locate the dark path and get the orbs of light. This will require navigating 3 different worlds of increasing tension and horror.


- Enemies will spawn in the dark world. The more orbs of light you collect, the more enemies will try to drag you to a shadowy grave, trapping you within the darkness of the mirror forever.
