A mysterious room

Is Mac version compiled to 32-bit? It looks like it is when I try to run the game and modern Mac OS only accepts 64-bit 

Pain, thats why I reverted mi updates so I can play 32-bit games (more games), you should too...


Hey man, I can't really remember since I published this about 4 years ago. I can try to build a new version but might take me a while.

In the meantime, feel free to give First Winter a go. It's the remake/sequel to this game and I think you'll be able to run it on your Mac ok.

Whoops, I just unintentionally trolled you, by linking to First Winter and it doesn't have a mac build. I remember people having trouble with it. If I get time this weekend I'll try to check it out and see if I can work something out. 

On current build you can add 32-bit to the filename so there will not be mad DLs ;

I didnt even know First winter had a prequel lmao thank you dan sanderson for the memorable experience!

No Commentary 

I gave it a go - 11:24 - 


did you expand this to become first winter because I saw a lot of the same room changing and map lay out that happend in that game. Good job

Yes, you're right! To quote the page description:

"...In June 2017 Dan Sanderson published a micro horror game on called Pacific which, to his surprise, was picked up and praised by popular horror YouTubers such as MrKravinMarkiplierJohn WolfeGirlGamerGab and RaedwulfGamer. Enthused by over 1.5 Million views and featured in Waypoint Vice and IGN's '12 Awesome Games you might've missed', First Winter was born. First Winter is a remake/sequel to Pacific and continues the theme of nuclear war."

Glad you got to play Pacific too, so you could see where it all started!

Well would of help if I had read that before making the comment. My denfense is  I am an idiot.  You ever played layers of fear because your games have a lot in common with that game in sense of the  same doors leading to different areas and stuff like that. Was there any real story to this because the tapes that you picked up in this seemed like clips from old timey raido broadcasts and if there was a stroy here I had a bit of problem following it so I love to hear your take on what you trying to make it,


Playing this after being awake for 26 hours and occasionally nodding off just to be awakened by the music and inevitably staring into a blank wall was quite some experience.


Wow, just seen this. That sounds absolutely terrifying. I hope the dreams weren't too disturbing. The music is a bit chewwy.

-Made a Video.

This video was uploaded year ago, i just forgot to share it that time.

8/10 - First Winter is better.


This game was honestly my introduction to Indie horror games.  I really like all of the twisting and changing corridors, and even though the graphics are so simple, the bed scene still scared me.  Really like it and I can't wait to play First Winter.

Dan, cool game. My native idiom is portuguese, sorry about that. The second one at time 12minutes and 32seconds:

Ever* oops

Very good game!! But.. I would love to know, will there every be a day when the first game is free? I mean, I played it but I have some friends who wanna play it, and even though it's a fair price.. are like me: pretty much broke lol


Thanks for the message dude. I’m glad you enjoyed it. I’m afraid First Winter won’t ever be Free. Its not that I need the small amount of money that it earns (and it’s not much) but whenever I do withdraw funds from itch I donate it to charity. Don’t get me wrong, I’m no Ghandi; it’s just that I know someone else can use $100 more than me (I’ll probably spend it on beer or bills). 

It’s already very cheap considering how much time and energy was invested into making it. It’s a bit like if you wanted to buy GTA or Call of Duty. You know how it’s really expensive but you still find the money to buy it because you want the game and you don’t have access to the developers to ask for it to be free? Well it’s like that except First Winter costs less than a Big Mac or a Starbucks coffee. In fact if your friends saved 1 cent every day from now on they could afford it by May next year! It REALLY IS not much money is it? Less than $2... Maybe since Christmas is coming up you could by them each a copy? Season of good will and all that! 

Thanks for the kind words. 

I personally enjoyed Pacific, it has a very interesting atmosphere. In reality something like this really could happen you really never know. 

I highly recommend playing this

I really like the pixelated art style with the fog. It gave this sense of unknowing fear from the lack of detailed information you could gather, which made you mind start working on what it could be.

Glad you enjoyed it. Hopefully you'll get a lot out of First Winter too!

Deleted 3 years ago

It’s a good question. I’ve actually made quite liberal use of the slash. Sequel/Remake. Make your own mind up 😉

Dan,this game is a kind of prototype of First Winter? Cool game. It seems a mix of pixelated between Layer Of Fear and P.T. Very good, congratulations.

A really scary game. We enjoyed it very much.

Here is a short video we made while playing:

Keep up the good work !!!

Had a lot of fun with this game and the transitions between the rooms was a cool touch!


add an enemy please and make sure it a scary one


There are lots of games with enemies. This one doesn’t have one.


yeah but  add one please for god sake


No it doesn't need an enemy.

what do you mean ? yes it does just like any other horror game otherwise the point of the suspense and tension if there no sense of  actual horror or danger in the game itself ? at some piont have to release the tension or else it will eventually loose the it appeal and the scary side of it because it meant to last for that long tension and suspense are use in horror to give the player that feeling of anxiety and fear of being watch or stalked by something evil and keep the gamers wandering whenit going to come on if it come out after a while the gamer realize that nothing there to then the whole thing becomes useless espcially when it doesnt the expectation of the player unfortunally developers on focus on the fisrt side that there another side of it because that how it woks .....anyway it your choice wether if you want to add an enemy or not that your game good luck in the futuer


Thanks for the future good luck. I trust you won't enjoy my latest game either ;)

Firstly, Pacific is a highly atmospheric and tense experience. It's roughly 10 minutes of game play. The characteristic of the game is that despite all your apprehension of progressing any further, the reality is that there is no physical threat and that you've wound yourself up for no logical reason. 

Secondly the subject matter is nuclear weapons and atomic testing in the 50's and 60's. The enemy is all around you; and I'm not intending to sound pretentious with that. The devastation of the nuclear blast and the side effects of the radiation surround you for the duration of this short experience. How could I possibly put a monster in there or some other kind of enemy? What would be the point and what purpose would it serve (in a story sense)?

There are thousands of games available that have an enemy in there chasing you around but Pacific is not one of them. 

Greetings from Germany. I really liked your the game, the pixelated look is awesome and it had some scary moments. Keep the good work up. ^^

Thank you!

Pretty good Pixelated horror game really enjoyed it! 

Can I please record myself playing this.

Of course. I would love to see you play this. Thanks for asking. 

thank you and you're welcome!

I did an LP of this on my channel. I quite enjoyed it, I always love when people do the whole changing layout thing.

It was very spooky! i really loved it! looking for more in future!

Thanks for taking the time to play it and make a video dude. Sequel is very close to completion! Follow @firstwintergame on twitter for updates. 

Nicely done. Atmospheric, twists and turns.

I'm in love with sounds and mechanics of this game! That was so creepy and atmospheric. 

Thanks so much for playing Pacific. I’m glad you enjoyed it. It was definitely a game about atmosphere rather than jump scares. FYI I’m currently working on the sequel/remake. 😉

great sound design. that's how a game should be. keep it up guys :)

Thanks a lot man. Glad you enjoyed the sound design.

That was SCARY! GOD!!!

This game wasn't really fun, it was hey lets see if this game can give you a heart attack FUN. Seriously, it scared me and I was sitting in my chair thinking, Jumpscare? Anyways it was fun and scared me (Obovisouly).

Hey Paul, thanks for the words man. I wasn't going for a jumpscare type game, but instead trying to build atmosphere and make you feel uncomfortable so hopefully I achieved that effect. Thanks for taking the time to play. 

Your welcome!

This game was fantastic, the atmosphere created made me feel very nervous from start to finish, the way the rooms changed was genius, thank you for this game! 

"Oh you son of a bitch!" I'm assuming that wasn't directed at me personally :-) Thanks for the video dude.

oh no not at all! Haha I was just saying it to the game, it was fantastic, thank you ! ☺️

I really had fun playing this game. I enjoyed it. I hope to see more from this developer! 

I have to say I enjoyed this little pixelated horror game. I look forward to more from this developer :3

This is great I had an eerie feeling the whole time.

Thanks for the LP dude.

Great atmosphere

Wow, I need to hire you for bug finding! Great bug getting caught in the corner like that. Haven't seen anyone else do that before.

Lol thanks, I like to try to test games limits it's fun.


This game was so freaky.  The ambience. The suspense. The atmosphere. The creepy audio. Everything contributed to make this game a wonderful, horror experience.  Pacific is creepier than some other pixelated horror games I played but it's not the best.  However, I did enjoy it.  The atmosphere was great and made me freak out during my entire playthrough.  You can see it in the video below.  Just fast forward to 5:58. I recommend you play the game for yourself.  It's easy! All you have to do is hit that download button up top. Only play if you're brave enough haha.

If you want, you can check out my playthrough of the game by clicking the link down below.  It's a double feature so fast forward to 5:58 to watch the Pacific playthrough.

If you liked what you saw, be sure to check out my channel by clicking the link below and subscribe if you wanna see more from me.

Hey mrsonicmanu Thanks for your awesome LP. I appreciate the time you took to play Pacific and I'm glad you enjoyed the atmosphere. I'm working on another game right now which I hope you'll also enjoy when I get round to finishing it! Good luck with Your YouTube channel 

Yeah no problem Dan Sanderson! I'm looking forward to playing the new game.  I'll keep an eye out for it.  Thanks! I need all the luck I can get haha


I played this game, on my channel. I found it to be an alright Pixelated Horror Game. It isn't the best one but it's not a bad one either! Here's my video on it, anyway: 

Scared the BAJEEZUS outta me! The tension this came creates is insane. 10/10 would get spooped again.

Thanks so much! Glad the atmosphere got you. I'm working on something else at the moment altogether different. 

Pretty good for such a short game. 

Thanks for the LP dude.

no problem! i really enjoyed it.

Short and sweet. I so wanted it to be longer!!

Thanks for the LP! Seeing the reactions of people like you has taught me quite a lot. Hopefully my next game won't leave you hanging as much. 

Thanks for the response! Some stuff still definitely caught me off guard and it had a great ambience to it!

This was a very cool game! I really enjoyed playing it great job!
