Scooby Doo is missing. No one knows for sure where he is, but they've got a clue.  He's been kidnapped by a group of ghosts in glowing diving suits, hiding in the woods near a lake. They've probably got Scooby Doo. Who the hell knows what they've been doing to Scooby.

Gameplay: This is a short horror game where you play as Shaggy, looking for Scooby Doo (he's trapped in a cage btw), in the woods at night, cause why not. You must find Scooby and get out before they catch you. Scooby Doo is always in a random place each time you play, so if you find him in a building, next time you play, he'll probably be in the mines.

Inspired by: Slendy Tubbies and I guess Slender as well.

Notes: I wanted to make the enemy the Diver from the Scooby Doo episode: A Clue For Scooby Doo (1969) and wanted to make the game spooky too I suppose. I always wanted to play a 3D Scooby Doo horror game where the enemy wasn't some dude in a monster costume but an actual ghost. I hate the new Scooby Doo shows, they're all shit. I only go back and watch the old 60s Scooby Doo sometimes cause I found it more entertaining, it gave me Scooby Doo horror game ideas and brings back fond memories of years ago when I'd watch Scooby Doo on Boomerang, in the morning.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy this game and have as much fun playing it as I did making it.

Got any ideas for updates? Let me know, and I'll gladly add it if I'm able to. Also contact me if you make a gameplay vid about my game. I'd love to know.

This was great! I'm not gonna lie, I REALLY wanted that cage to be an Easter egg, lol. I took it as a troll and soldier'd on lol. The game was a little laggy but that may just be my med-end PC. Otherwise, it was great! I liked the jump scare sounds and the whole classic 'scooby doo' vibe of the place. You're awesome at these horror-tv show crossovers. Let me know if I missed anything!

Thanks man! I think the only easter egg you missed was when you go to the corner of the lake by the glowing seaweed, a Diver Ghost will emerge from the water. It was a replication of the scene in the Scooby Doo episode "A Clue For Scooby Doo" where the diver ghost emerges from the lake.

YES I remmber that! I can't believe I missed the easter egg D:

loved 3am at the krusty krab so much i had to play another keep it up.

That's awesome you played this one! it's been awhile since I've seen someone play the old scooby horror. It was kind of the foundation for my horror games to come.

What is this I hear about a Scooby Horror 2?

Ironic how I just saw this comment as soon as I started working on the itch.io page of Scooby Horror 2. It's coming out in roughly 10 minutes!

Edit: It's out now! Enjoy.

This is gonna be good.

I really would of liked Jumpscares! Overall to me it wasn't scary... But still a great idea for a game, I would like to see you make more Scooby Doo horror games

Yeah I know, I completly forgot to add jumpscares, but Scooby Horror 2(In the works) will have em. I think. Unless I think of something a little different. And the AI. Yeah, I really need to improve that for sure. :D

Oh and another thing, the updated version of Scooby horror lengthened the game, added more random scooby spawn areas, more buildings and areas, and made the floating building have legs.

Pretty fun stuff!

Glad you enjoyed it. :) Keep an eye out, cause in the future I plan on releasing a sequel. With a new villain that people might be familiar with

Love that lake part! Keep up the amazing work!

Thanks man, I was really excited to see your reaction to that lake part.

Love the game! Brings back many memories!

Ha, wow, I never thought someone would actually make a video of one of my games, let alone a Scooby game. Thanks man. :D

The pleasure was all mine :)

After your video was posted, I decided to release some updates to the game, about two, that addressed some issues that I saw during your video. I added two new Scooby Doo spawning locations and expanded the map to lengthen the game. I also expanded and improved the mines, added more areas to explore in the woods, and a deadly encounter near the lake. So this video really helped in giving me ideas to improve the game.

Glad I could be of help! I kinda want to play it again now to see all the stuff you have added.

Btw, I'm about to do a quick patch, adding in a missing sound file and sprucing up the mainmenu loading.
