A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

Gruesome deaths. Unsolved disappearances. A house that warps between the present day and 1958. Something inhuman in the attic. A 60-year-old mystery to be solved – if you can survive the experience.

The Mannequin is a first-person narrative horror game which blends terror with tragedy. Only you can uncover the truth about what really happened in this time lost London home, even as reality shifts around you and a malevolent entity – the silent, dead-eyed Mannequin – pursues you at every turn.

Development of The Mannequin is currently on hold.

The demo on this page was featured at Insomnia 58 and EGX and was created around May 2016.

I cant wait for the full game

And to be honest, this game had much more then i expected keep up the good work! 

Really loved this game, it had a great creepy atmosphere and some awesome jump scares!!


No fear (((Maybe you need to add more sounds ...

very spooky game indeed.

A really enjoyable game with a few little jumpscares thrown in for good measure, the story builds up nicely along with some tension and the mannequin is quite terrifying.

 The asthetics are nice and really give it that old house feel like the boarded up windows and the spider webs everywhere and also scattered objects like boxes,letters and newspapers along with the atmospheric music when it takes the front room back to its original state.

In my playthrough i think i missed the mark when it comes to the story but it was still fun regardless, the flashlight did not illuminate well but it was not a big issue as you can still maneuver up and down the house well enough.

 I cannot wait to hear the voice overs when they come out , it will be interesting to see how that plays in , maybe there could even be some dialogue as your character pieces the puzzle all together to find out what actually happened and end the end it is summarised incase the player misses it.

I loved playing this game. (Skip to 24:19)

i enjoyed playing this game

I really like the idea of this game, mannequins and dolls are great in horror when done well. However, I found the game too dark to play in, and the flashlight didn't make much of a difference. Also found a bit of a glitch. When I walked into the lit room with the desk I ended up in the locked dark room. I see development is on hold, but I hope you come back to it and maybe make a change in the lighting.

It is and OK game although I think the flashlight behave ins pretty unrealistic way.

Hello there creator. I played your game and i make a video of it

This game scared the most in this video... My god.. But it's seems there's a bug in the game. When i make the mannequin, the arms where not in the normal position. Don't know that's normal? But anyway. The game was great. 

Here's my video of it. Enjoy!!

The game starts on (11:58)

Played this game a while back!
REALLY scared me.
can't wait for future updates on this game.
keep up the amazing work

wow it's crerpy and scary. I am looking forward to the full game.

i love the demo. good job ^^

Interesting concept, I enjoyed it. had a nice atmosphere about it and gave em few laughs at the same time 

I really liked this game!

Thank you for the experience! lots of scares for me :)

I like this, altough I still hate mannequins. I tried to conquer my fear here but failed miserably. The game works good and have a nice wellmade story to it. 

Well done :D



Really well done.  I look forward to seeing more.  I like the story presentation, and how you play with the static nature of mannequins.




i hete it

I'm going to try when I go to library it looks fun

This game was very well put together! A bit dark at times so seeing far in front of you isn't easy, but the atmosphere is very creepy, and the mannequin makes for a great antagonist of sorts. Character movement is solid. Sound is great in this game. Would love to play a full version of this!

Here's my playthrough of it:

I really enjoyed this, I wasn't afraid of mannequins until now. I still might get one so I can drape fabric on it for fun. I didn't run into any bugs, I do think it is a bit too dark, not much but just a tiny smidge of too dark. Other than that I really can't wait to see what the full game is going to look like.

I've made a let's play of this, can't wait to play the full game :D 

I was enjoying this decently enough, but I had to quit because I kept having lag issues as soon as you assemble the mannequin.  Also, the visible range on the flashlight was literally giving me a headache.  It can light up fifteen feet to either side of you, but you can't see anything more than five feet in front of you?  It was driving me nuts.

I hope to come back to this later though.  The atmosphere and art design are great.

Nice job, when can we expect the real deal? I would be really interested in it!

This is just a demo and it's that great? Loved the jumpscares, surely i will love the entire release. Hope it comes faster. Even recorded it, because that good xD

Awesome Game Guys! Scared the hell out of me Lol Loved every moment of it. Maybe just the flash light irritated me a little but otherwise a great game. Can't wait for the full release. If you want a full demo walkthrough without any commentary then I hope you guys enjoy the video below

Literally just made my new video on this game, i literally loved everything about this game despite hating mannequins so much.. but it was a beautifully creepy game and i wish there was a longer version for sure!!!

So Gooooooood~!!!

Enjoyed playing the game. The atmosphere was just right. Good job :D

I'm seriously hooked on this game and can't wait for it to be finished! I know it's still in early development but I really enjoyed my experience. I did come across some strange bug that put me in an area I wasn't meant to be in so soon. But that didn't keep me from trying again. Awesome job Devs!!

Today on the A Very Meowy Christmas livestream (AVMC), we have the biggest jumpscare we’ve ever had!. It's time to get spooked on today's stream as we play, The Mannequin!

Good demo, my dog appreciated it too :D

Very good. Amazing graphics. 

This game rocks ...We really liked the demo we 're hopping that a full release of this game will be in order...


The Mannequin... What can I say about this game other that it scared the CRAP out of me! I'm not sure if it was the eerie atmosphere or the fact that I HATE mannequins, but it got me good ^^' If I had to give one complaint about the game, it's that it seemed to be using up a lot of gpu/cpu power (Not sure which one) I can't believe I'm saying this but... I really excited for the full game to be released! Do you know about when it'll be released?

THIS HOUSE IS EVIL!  also can't wait for the full game great job!

This demo shows great promise for a horror game. It has lots of great scares and a narrative that draws you in slowly. I had a great time playing it, you can check out my lets play below, but I also recommend playing this game for yourself, you'll be happy you did.  Cant wait for the full game. 

the game was a bit laggy but it was still freaky! :D

ACK! when will this be done. The SUSPENSEESSS. This was a really good play!
