A downloadable game for Windows

Dora the Explorer meets the horror genre! For some reason...

Story: Dora has kidnapped you (Swiper the Fox) in your sleep, and brought you to this warehouse of some sort. You must find a way out of here, but beware, Dora wants to kill you and take your legs. But what did you ever do to Dora that would awaken her from her grave to hunt down and kill you?

So this is a pretty random ass horror game I came up with. I bet you're wondering why I'd make a horror game based on Dora. Well, I was sitting on my chair brain storming ideas and I was like, "You know, I don't think anyone has ever made a horror game about Dora the Explorer. Yes, this is the perfect idea! Haha!" So, here it is, Dora Is Dead. Just in time for the month of October and I guess Halloween too. Enjoy!

Remember, let me know if you encounter any bugs, and if you make a video, let me know!

totally not gonna download it *downloads it

and then there's dora! she's dead.......

Great game! it just reminds me of my Ex who also tried to kill me O.o

Also i didnt realizze there was a remaster version! ill check that one out too!

this is not the dora that i remember (p.s i am a huge dave microwaves games fan)

I played this game before I realized there was a remastered version. Oh well, this game was a fun short game. I liked how crazy Dora became after the incident. Never watched the show, but I think you captured her essence well.

The most impressive part for me was managing to make a maze that really mess with my sense of direction. Thanks for making this silly game!

this game was really scary and amazing fot my youtube do check out 

and subscribe

لعبة رعب رائعة جدا👍👍👍👍👍😍



this game...it was fun to play

this game isnt at all scary!

I remember this game the most from your games Dave, i enjoyed it most out of all of your games. I think this game is known for having absolutely nothing to do with Dora, other than characters. I loved her design, it's sow low-poly she doesn't even look like Dora, but it looks great. Other than that, nice game, it's fun and worth beating!

sorry but dora dose not even look like dora! but hell is it scary you should add boots to it too 

Really enjoyed this one! great game guys!!!!

Had so much fun playing this game, thank you!


This is a fun game to play. Nice game!

Loved it

this is so scary


The game can't launch because... This:

Ah, that pesky error. I've seen this occur for some users, but thankfully there's a solution. https://www.reddit.com/r/playark/comments/7l2qcw/aberration_unreal_engine_is_exiting_due_to_d3d/

I have found myself unable to play. I dont know why, but I can LAUNCH the game, but it wont play.

Are you getting an error message?


I have to say that this little inde game genuinely scared me. I wasn’t inspecting Dora Is Dead to freak me out so hard, but it managed to do so. I really enjoyed how this game took a dark spin on a beloved cartoon character amongst those who watch it. Dora Is Dead is a very simple horror game with a twist thrown in there that pleasantly surprised me, especially a certain someone who rushed at me in this dark dilapidated building you’re being held captive in. I definitely recommend anyone to try this one out.

Where tf are all the hammers? I only found 2 spots!!!???

There's a third spot I think. It's somewhere, I don't remember, lol.

This was short but good! Enjoyed it alot! Keep up the good work!


coooool game dude!

add to mac plz

(1 edit)

I cannot make a Mac port, it is literally impossible for me to do. Please understand, it's not that I don't want to, trust me, I'd friggin LOVE to make a mac port for all of my games. But it is beyond my control. I just cannot make a Mac port. I do hope you understand man. :/


DORA is now officially DEAD!



My childhood has been resuscitated! It's alive! xD


This game ruined my childhood.

(1 edit)

lol, that's the point! :D


Ho. Lee. Crap. A warning to anyone else wanting to play this: don't play it too late at night...... ಠ_ಠ

For sure, this has got to be the scariest game I've made to date, lol. Glad you enjoyed it!


I record this game in my language

how did you make this game, like what game engine did you use to make this, and how did you make the models? 

I use Unreal Engine 4 to make my games and I use Blender to make my models.

ok, tysm for replying, i honestly wasn't expecting a reply.

I always like to reply to everyone's comments. :)


I am gonna be quite honest, and quite apologetic too.

This game and your Scooby Horror games are not scary to me but more funny and enlightening, especially the Scooby Horror ones because of how it plays into my childhood.

I probably would've liked it better if the performance was a bit better on my computer but hey.... we don't all have the money for things.

Oh yeah, here's a video on me trying out your games!

(1 edit)

My older games weren't always the scariest, lol so I get where you're coming from. And I wish the performance could've been better for you. :/ But I'm glad you had fun with some of those weird games of mine!

I wish the performance was better too but blame my 2-3 year old computer that is surprisingly still working to this day.

I found the menu screen music the creepiest parts of the video lol, but the monsters were just a laugh! I need to check out Sesame Street and the other "recent" games of yours, nevertheless the performance.

I think my newer games might run better for you, as some people have told me that my newer games play better than my old ones.
