That was both fun and intense. Great work!

Bro I am eagerly waiting for your new game since 2018. All the games are so addicting and amazing.

(Please make a full fledge game bro it will be lit.)

Thanks a lot :) we are making the fourth chapter right now. We will hopefully release it next week, if all goes well.  We made a full length (5 hour) simulation game in the same universe called Mind Scanners.

Hi ! Thanks for the fun ! I really enjoyed your universe. Is there more episodes to come ? 

Thank you! And yes, indeed there is. I haven't done any since 2019, but there will be an episode coming in 2021 :)

That was fun. 

If I might give a tip: Just because an object like a wire is 1 ppixel wide does not mean the clickable hitbox of it has to be. Gets very finnicly to click :P

Thanks! This is true - I will make a note a correct things like this whenever I get time to make a remaster of the series :)

Another great episode, looking forward to Mindscanners :) 


Jeg har endelig fået spillet dit seneste spil i "The Outer Zone"-serien. Overordnet så er det et ret godt klassisk adventure spil. Historien, musikken og det visuelle er alt sammen godt, og det passer som altid godt sammen. Men jeg syndes ofte det er svært at finde ud af hvad jeg skal gøre, og det nemt at komme til overse ting man skal interagere med. 

Jeg har det med det her spil, som de andre i serien, at de har tendens til at de stoppe der hvor historien egentlig burde starte, men okay det er bare sådan det er. Jeg kunne også godt have tænkt mig, at der var mere af en sammenblanding af historierne fra de forskellige spil i serien. Der behøves ikke være andet en små referencer til de andre historier.

Men uanset hvad så er det her et godt lille spil, og jeg syndes i øvrigt dit næste spil "Mind Scanners" også ret interessant ud.

Og så vil jeg bare sige tak for at du deler dine spil med os

Tusind tak for din fine kommentar - og tak fordi du spillede :)

Ja det er en svær balance med sværhedsgraden i et point-and-click spil. Den gamle generation vil ofte have det endnu mere komplekst, men jeg synes nu også det er sjovest med lette puzzles :)

Jeg sigter helt klart efter at få blandet historierne sammen. Der er et par ting der løber på tværs af de første tre episoder, men det bliver der mere af fremover. Jeg har travlt med at færdiggøre Mind Scanners, men derefter vil jeg se om ikke jeg kan få tid til at lave et par episoder mere :)

Igen mange tak!


Awesome! Lots of fun, thanks for making it available. Didn't see that coming at the end.

Thanks! I hoped that would be surprising :) Glad it worked!

Great episode! Looking for your future projects :D


Thanks a lot!

A fun game just like the other games from Tales From The Outer Zone series.

Waiting for the next one. :)

Thanks a lot! And thank you for doing a let's play :)

I am also eager to make the next chapter, but I'm currently spending all my time making a psychiatry simulator in the same universe called "Mind Scanners". 

Another sweet addition to the series, for people who haven't, check out the two other episodes. :) 


Thanks a lot for another great lets play Cryptic! I'll make another episode for you this year I hope :)

Uuu, I like that plan. More Outer Zone! :)


Wow! This is truly one of the best games I've played in quite some time. And that is in spite of the fact that I found some of the puzzles INFURIATING. (I suck at adventure game logic.)


nothing beats solving infuriating puzzles :D your words warms my hardworking developer heart - thank you!

thank you for your kind words and also for the let's play :)

Here is the video as I promised. I tinkered with my voice filters so it should sound a lot better than usual.

Thanks a lot for the lets play :D

And thank you for the chance to play! it is hard to come by such an entertaining pixel clicker game. Even more so anentertaining horror game.

I'm happy you liked it. And that it works as a horror game :)

Yeah. I honestly believe anything with monsters and blood and gore can be considered horror. Not all horror has to be scary. Like the munsters or the Adam's family for instance. It was a great game! And it fits the horror genre well!

I havefinished the video. it will be up on monday. tell me, what do you think of the thumbnail? is it eye catching, what can i do to improve?

cool - looking forward to it. Nope looks good to me :)

An interesting addition to the 'Outer Zone' world. I must admit the protagnist 'swearing like a sailor' was definitely a disconnect from the first two games. Admittadly, a very different character also.

A great example of another two week point-and-click project. I really enjoyed the third angle this story has taken and look foward to more.

thanks - yeah one of my goals with this world is to make place for all of my ideas. No matter the genre and theme. I love diversity, but it is a hard thing to balance - it can quickly spin out of control :) I hope to keep everything believable within the same universe.

Yay! I finished it. A really fun and creepy game and made in just two weeks! Really cool. 

thank you. Yeah - pretty intense two weeks :D

I might be posting a gameplay of it tomorrow, Not sure if i do, but if i do i will post it here

You are very welcome to do so :) Looking forward to it.

Flesh Worms is a seriously amazing game!! Music sets a great vibe and the humor is twisted!

Thank you :D And thanks for the let's play!
