plz add more monsters to custom mode dave

Not sure if this has been asked but will there be support for other OS's like Linux and MacOS?


I've wanted to do that for awhile but I've had trouble with trying to port my games to other OS's. Linux was such a strange and frustrating process I kind of just gave up and for Mac you need to own a Mac to port it for some reason. UE4 is just weird like that. I'll definitely try porting my games to other OS's in the future, I just need to dedicate some time to learning how to port to Linux and maybe get my hands on a Mac someday.

I paid for the game but I can't seem to find the download for it.

It should be in your Itchio library and should've taken you to the download link after purchase. Lemmie know if you still have any problems.


nvm i just had to make a paypal account

are you making a scoobys horror 3

sorry i meant scooby horror 4 and how about make a game about gumball hunting miracle star


Is this like the "Horror from below the sea"??? It seems like a copy lmao! XD  (u know im kidding Dave [no one please send bad comments lol this is jokes])


Lmao, exactly.


A fun improvement to "From Beyond the Stars!"  The addition of multiple starting locations and monster specific abilities brings a breathe of fresh air to an already fun series.  While the map doesn't change this small choice keeps you on your toes in a more labyrinthine station. "Custom mode" is greatly welcomed given the diversity of creatures and their abilities, I was rather surprised to see the Rare monsters selectable in this mode.  With key-cards now having static locations the scramble for survival becomes more oriented on finding the tools to gain access to said key-cards instead of just a frantic sprint around the station searching for that last damn card you might have overlooked.

The aesthetic of the game is very reminiscent to the golden age of cinema, this serves the low-poly graphics quite well.  However, as much as I love the look of this game my only true complaint about it is carried over from the original, the inability to turn off the film grain effect, it is a style choice that I will always disable when given the option.

Rogue-like horror is a terribly under tapped market; if you like the idea of a re-playable horror game then this is right up your alley. It may not have realistic graphics but, the best horror often isn't realistic.  The best horror is often ugly or even dare I say, cute, because it isn't what you see that terrifies you. It's the possibilities that your mind delivers in place of realism.

Awesome game Sir, keep it up.

Is the one on gamejolt has the latest update with alice?

Yeah, they're both up to date. It just says updated months ago but that's not true.


the best 3$ I have spent  ever would buy it is worth your time I have played it for 24 hours 


I don't even know what to say, other than this game is just fun.. and has brought joy to many... I'm just sayin'.. ^_^


this game looks so lazy, the models and graphics has some effort. but looks so bad. and it's to bad since this game has potential, so i recommend remaking the graphics as a new edition would be fine. i know a person who can help with that. i do kinda recommend, but the graphics bothered me a bit 

(4 edits) (+2)

Ah, sorry you feel that way towards the graphics. I am slowly improving over time and getting better at modeling and level design. I know some users may not care for the low-poly graphics and style but it's something I enjoy doing and many others aswell. As for your friend who can help, I'm not really one to get help from others y'know, I prefer to work on my projects alone so I can improve myself. But thanks for letting me know though! I Hope you'll give the game a chance someday. :)


i guess it's fair, you do your games, my team do my games

also, there is a way for smooth the shading and polygons as well as this thing called Subsurf 


Ah yeah I know that, actually been testing that effect out in my current project. It's just that I usually use flat shading for my models as a design choice, haha.

is: unreal engine???

what do you use to create these games?


I use Unreal Engine 4.

can u please sometime make a regular show game that u can go in park and around the house and skip garrage and u play as rigby or something ? that would actually be awesome dude I appreciate your content maybe after the spongebob release? if you want i can help you with ideas also can i please add u on discord if u have one, thanks.

also u said spongebob is ur final "am" game so can i ask a few questions? whats an am game, and will u stop making games in general? dora released a while back man and will u finish draculas castle its in the beta, ok thanks!


every time i deal with barney barnacle i always sh*t my pants because of how FRIGGIN huge he is!

i really like the chase music that was put in this game, it can really catch players off guard, nice work. oh and btw i was kinda thinking that u could actually make SUNKY as its own seperate game, im not saying i really want it, but its just a thought.

Ah yeah, I have plans to make SUNKY a standalone game in the future. Hopefully sometime this year if I get the chance!

Dave you are still developing Around the clock at bikini bottom when will the game release. So in the previous games you made are Bunky, Tunky. And who is Sunky.

(1 edit)

I'm hoping to release Around The Clock at Bikini Bottom in Fall this year. As for your second question, SUNKY is the sister of those two UNKYs, and I thought, "Why not complete the trilogy with a game called SUNKY". Lol.

Dave who is behind the voice of Baldi when he sees me and even drag me out of the ship dying of drowning telling me" thanks for playing come back soon"?

*Me drowning*

Baldi: thanks for playing come back soon



Baldi was voice acted by Mystman himself. He allowed me to put his character in the game legally and agreed to voice act Baldi.

What is the difference between classic mode and hardcore mode?

Classic mode you only face one monster and get an intro sequence. Hardcore mode spawns two monsters.

That's what I was hopin

Can you make the game free for one day on this week please?


Unfortunately I cannot do that or else I'd be losing money from all my hard work. At least the game's dirt cheap, only a dollar and fifty cents, lmao.

(1 edit) (-1)

Can you imagine if you put Baldi in the game without asking mystman12 first? (illegally obtaining baldi like the other game arthur's nightmare)


Can someone make a alice gameplay video please?


I just recorded a new Strange Terror video and I did play as Alice :) I will post a link when I have it edited and uploaded tomorrow at 2PM EST

Here’s my video, like I promised :) I hope you enjoy it https://youtu.be/kmJ8Ln5W_WE

How do I play as Alice?

(1 edit)

Select classic mode, then you will see a character select screen pop up. She's currently unavailable to play as in the other modes for now.


Hey I'm really interested in this game but sadly I can't purchase it on itch.io due to lack of funds (I use steam wallet codes) so i was wondering if there is any plans to maybe release this on steam, maybe bundled with Strange Terror from the stars? I really want to play it! Either way keep up the awesome work, I hope it all goes well!


I have been thinking about a Steam release but I'll probably hold off on doing that and wait for when I decide to make the Ultimate Edition.

Oh that sounds like it would be awesome! I'll definitely have to keep an eye out for that! I'm planning a weekend where I try to play as many of your games as possible in a row, from your first released game on itch to your newest, while I continue to be a massive coward who gets scared really easily. I figured it would be a fun way to spend a weekend. Either way, thank you so much for taking the time to respond back to me, and I hope everything goes well with your upcoming games, and I'll definitely keep an eye out for your stuff in the future!

I have 2 monster ideas I would like to share.

1. The Magician - He can teleport to different areas while searching for you

2. Scrappy - He can hide under tables and wait for you to come near by

Those are my ideas

Umm it says X3DAudio1_7.dll was not found, so I can't play it. How do I fix it friends? :(

Huh, that's weird. I looked it up on the UE4 forums and some users say this can be caused by the user not having DirectX installed correctly.


Hmmm strange...well I guess I could try fixing it that way. Thanks! :)


I played the new update, and I would like to say that the jazz salmon was good.

Very Rare Monster Ideas

-Alien Baltan (Ultraman)

Clones himself while searching.

-Dalek (Doctor Who)

Beware. the raygun will exterminate you in one hit.

-John Madden

Throws footballs at you!

-Spooky Space Kook (Scooby Doo)

He flashes his light from his helmet to stun you for 2 seconds.

-Tunky (Unky series)


That's just a thought.

(1 edit) (+2)

Monster ideas

-Monster leech 

Just an average monster.Average door burst down time average speed.


Probably the ability to go through the lasers.

-Some robot laptop thing

Drains your life support faster?

-Green octopus


-King crab

Maybe another monster with the grab ability?

- ̶B̶̶̶̶̶̶͈͙̮̥̻  Giant isopod thing

Can hide under tables???

Idk. Maybe just average monster,but it'd be cool to have

I wish Jayskibean was here to play this...

(Edit) You should add that glowing diver monster guy (i forgot his name) from Scooby Horror into the rare character list. 

And the Hash Slinging Slasher since he's underwater.

Just a thought.

Yeah same. And I can't add any licensed characters into the game since it's a paid game. Otherwise I'll get in trouble, y'know.

Oh yeah, I forgot...

Have you heard at all from Jayskibean ever since November 9? Like, has anything bad happened to him, or did he just quit, or what? I've been really concerned.

Yeah, I've chatted with him recently. He's doing good, just been wanting to stay away from social media n stuff. That's why he's removed his Twitter account recently. He has thought about YT recently but he said it's just been more stressful than fun to do, so he's kind of just staying away from it. So I guess for now he's just gonna be going on with his everyday life and taking a break from social media in general.


Ah, thanks so much! I was a lot more worried than I should have been

Dave, are there any rare monsters coming soon?

I don't think I'll be adding anymore new monsters. But when I do make another content update in the future, I will probably just add in new mechanics or modes. Adding a new monster in a future content update is possible but not something I want to do again, since it was a brutal experience adding in those three new monsters in the last update.



Also, just a suggestion, but can you add a Impossible mode? Where every normal monster is in the mode, when a rare monster appears.. All of them appear!

Lol, I do actually have plans to add a similar mode like that in a future content update. Dunno if I'll be doing it but we'll have to see I suppose, haha.

References to the secret characters!

Baldi from Baldi's Basics

SUNKY from the UNKY games

Nosferatu from Nosferatu's Lair of Doom

that ghost thing from Wails to Freedom

Fish Freak Mutant from Strange Terror From Beyond The Stars

Taco Timmy from Dave Microwave's Discord Server

(yes I watched a vid)

The game is actually enjoyable i feel like a dick that i said it aint worth 3 dollars.

lol, It's fine dude, glad you're enjoying it so far. :)

ah fuck it im buying it

Is there any mechanics to the monsters! Such as Baldi or SUNKY (almost said SUCKY xD) Like, any mechanics would help!

Baldi's patrol speed will increase the longer he goes without chasing you. Once he spots you, his speed will decrease to his regular base speed. As for SUNKY, she will spawn the iconic eyeballs from the UNKY games around the map. If these eyes spot you, you will teleport to a random location on the map. This can be both good and bad, it can save you when being chased, or it can teleport you right in front of or near SUNKY.

What about the rest of the characters?

What do they do?

I'll probably make a big post describing every monster's abilities when I release the next big content update next week. Cause it's a lot to write in one comment like this, lol.

Hey dev im not trying to be annoying or anything but maybe someday you will make this game free ? 

Don't think I will be doing that, however I will be putting it on sale a few months after it's release most probably.

Game is amazing! Funny cartoon poly graphics and good voice acting but little expensive for game with not so much to do like I like to play it but STFBTS was almost the same thing! But its cool game good work! 8,5/10!!!


Im not paying 3 dollars for a unity game.................

(1 edit)

Understandable, however this was made in Unreal Engine 4. But regardless of what engine it was developed in, the game has enough content to justify the price tag.


can ya send me a key please ?  I am a big fan of ur games. If ya would give me a key i would play it on my yt channel is not that popular but it has 560 subs.


Great game


Liked the last game so much that I came back for more. This was a ton of fun!


Excellent job Dave! It does feel a lot like STFBTS but a lot more refined and detailed. I didn't get very far but will definitely be playing it until I can get through it.
