A downloadable game for Windows

Softly I rise and fall, at the complete mercy of the waves. Is it as peaceful as people say? Don't have the energy to swim back to shore, nor the desire. Nothing but the sound of water filling my ears. Drifting away now, I feel nothing. As I enter my eternal slumber the deep beckons me.


A first person psychological-horror set in the mind of a drowning person's final moments.

Mind At Sea was originally made to challenge myself to learn more C++ but ended up becoming a finished project that I completed in 3 weeks. I've released it on Itch.io for free so that anyone can try it and give me feedback. If you do play it let me know what you think!

Really blown away from this experience. It honestly felt very terrifying and claustrophobic. I would have like to seen more of the abstract puzzle solving along the way -- but what's already here is really, really great. Thank you for respecting the players time as well, I died after collecting the objectives and was worried I would've had to start all over -- bless the save states.

Very happy to see that you liked it! Yeah, I didn't want anyone to feel like it was a slog to get all of the Blessings again. Thank you so much for playing and leaving your wonderful thoughts!

Fantastic job, absolutely loved the environments and the presentation of the concept. As a graphic designer, I'm a sucker for typography and even down to the font choice was 10/10.

Thank you so much! Super thrilled you enjoyed the game (and the font)!

Love the atmosphere! I somehow got lost towards the end and spent a lot of time trying to get through a different door so my playthrough is pretty long. I think I almost got stuck in some terrain while I was wandering but got out eventually.

I really like it though, it was one of those games where the game world stuck with me after I stopped playing. Can;t wait to see more from you!

Thanks for giving your thoughts! Super useful feedback. I'll see what I can do to make it easier to find where you're supposed to go. Also, never seen two divers in the last area before! Will need to sort that. Happy you enjoyed it though!

This was very good! Extremely terrifying. It also helps that I'm deathly afraid of the ocean! This game had me shook. Great buildup of tension. Here's my playthrough: 

Glad you enjoyed it despite your fear! Your video was great to watch, thanks for playing!

Hi there, I am a youtuber and I hope to get some support from you guys by leaving a like and subscribe at my channel.

I was initially interested in playing this game as it stated that it was a psychological horror game but I felt that I was unable to really feel the words psychological horror from this game. 

To me, Psychological horror is something that scares you from the within like a storyline that is extremely unsettling and disturbing which makes you feel afraid and anxious just because of the storyline or the atmosphere and environment of the game. Having said that, I felt that having someone chasing you as you fulfill the tasks does not really appeal to me as a psychological horror game.

Other than that, this is a great horror game and I hope to see a more well-thought storyline of the man drowning in his final moments like an exploration of his past life before he gives up and die.

Thank you.

Psychological horror deprives on playing with your mentality/emotions to frighten, disturb or unsettle (that's the definition). This game can potentionally disturb people due to its usage of clausotropy and sense of helplessness (it got me uncomfortable!) depending on what they find scary

Hey there spectators and Dev,


Mind at sea was a beautiful and terrifying experience.  More so for me due to the fact that I hate being underwater in the sea.


The visual were calm and yet strikingly beautiful and the short yet intense chase moments had my heart beating like a racehorse.


Thanks for letting us see your creation dev


Have fun spectators . . .

I really like this game it's a little confusing to me but I'm still getting there and here is the first video of my let's play. I hope you like it.

Hey! Thanks for playing! Your video was super useful for feedback so thanks for making it. I'll see what I can do about the stuttering you had about half way through. I'll also add some hints as it isn't very clear what to do at points. I noticed there were some sound stuttering too, was that ingame or just in the recording?

I'm sorry about the late reply back but I think it might had been the recording maybe I didn't remember any sound stuttering at all but I might be wrong I will go back through my video and check
