R00000 (WIN/Linux) by Weekend Warriors

R00000 is a miniature experience of an amateur monster video shooting gone completely wrong. Look through the eyes of a troubled man seeking to film a scary picture at his own basement and plunge deeper and deeper into his mental prison with every new re-take.

Inspired by psychological problems such as Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), which can make life into everyday horror, R00000 makes the player obsessively re-shoot the same scene over and over again in order to perfect it. However, perfection comes with consequences in this dark and damp basement.
