A Southern Gothic horror story. Remember, of all the masks we wear, it's the final one that matters.

Babyface was originally an entry in IF Comp 2020. This is the post-competition release, featuring several expanded scenes.

Content warning: There are no explicit depictions of violence, but this game includes implied violence and body horror. Some audio may be creepy, though it can be muted at any time with the 'm' key.

Found this game thanks to Sjoerd and I find myself agreeing with his review. I have so many questions after completion and I think I'll have to replay multiple times if i want to find the answers. It was a great read, and I recommend it to anyone who likes this style of game. Here's my experience with Babyface:

Thanks for making games!


Thank you so much for taking the time to play the game and review it!

An unsettling universe in which the player faces something which I didn’t know could be horrific, a babyface. Making this game unique and something that should be recognized by more lovers of interactive horror fiction.

Full review on my website!

This was awesome, I actually read it a few times over lol. I wanted to see what else I could poke around at just to get even more creeped out. Thanks for making it!

Thanks! I definitely wrote it with replaying/rereading in mind!


Well you certainly succeeded! I admit, it felt so real that I called my husband and kept him on the phone because I accidentally scared myself with this story lol.
