About This Game

Actuality: During the summer of 2003, events in the northeastern United States involving a strange, human-like creature sparked brief local media interest before an apparent blackout was enacted. Little or no information was left intact, as most online and written accounts of the creature were mysteriously destroyed.
Witnesses told stories of their encounters with a creature of unknown origin. Emotions ranged from extremely traumatic levels of fright and discomfort.
In early 2006, the collaboration had accumulated nearly two dozen documents dating between the 12th century and present day, spanning 4 continents. In
almost all cases, the stories were identical...

Do ghosts exist? What about Bigfoot, Chupacabras,Rake or Skinwalkers? And how will we ever know?

"RAKE" is the first game in our series of games about paranormal phenomena.

You play as Gordon Davis, a scientist, a traveller and an explorer of unknown creatures and unusual events. Having learnt one more legends, Gordon travels through
the country in search of poltergeists,Bigfoot, Mothman and other American legends...exploring haunted houses, trekking through creepy bushy forests and scanning the sky and lakes to collect data about the mystical events...

So, you are in the place where the strange humanoid - Rake was most frequently seen. Most often he was seen at night. Therefore, you can use the cameras, motion sensors, night vision device for the strange phenomena detection. In the afternoon you are installing equipment in all areas of the forest. You can also mount the cameras on animals, if you manage to lure them into a trap. At nightfall your task is to watch on the monitor for events taking place in the forest. You can switch between the cameras. If you notice something unusual, you can go to a place where the camera has spotted the creature. Do not forget to take a rifle. So you have to hunt down a strange creature, and then kill it or trap it. However, be careful, it can disrupt your plans ... And while watching on the monitor, be aware, it could be closer than you think. The game is over, when you will it... or it kills you...
Good luck!

Very Good game and also scary. started by going setup cams, got scared by pigs. Moved further into the forest and back to my camper. Going to sleep, waking up at night.

It's utter garbage, just a quick cash grab to drag in all the kids who are into Creepy Pasta. I won't even start on the extremely poor optimization settings. It's hard to tell this game came from 2015, a video game that came out ages ago has more setting options.They used defualt unity trees and grass in this game which makes me feel like they put little effort into this.

I'm almost conglicted about this one, but in the end it has too many problems. Rake is basically a game about stalking a monster through the woods.You spend a lot of time in this game doing nothing, just walking around hoping for something to happen, and granted when it does it's not bad, but it really sags. The camera mechanic is neat, but almost useless I'd say, considering the creature doesn't seem to hang out near the cameras all that much, not enough anyway to make use of the cameras in tracking it. If you can grab it on sale I could think of worse ways to waste a couple of bucks, but I wouldn't call this a great use of time...Also the textures are attrocious...

So my friends and I bought this game as a joke. We expected dank memes and silly "scares". What we got instead was a salvagable good survival horror game.

The thing about this game is that it's early access and it's not finished. I've also heard that the dev(s) don't plan on continuing it, sadly. It's a shame, too, because there's actually a lot of neat things in the game (Like the Rake's house, or shed, as my friends and I call it). In the shed, which is hard to find, you will see gored animals and human remains from the things he has hunted, as well as risk him coming back and attacking you. Stuff like that made the game seem a bit better than your typical creepypasta ♥♥♥♥ game.

The other thing about this game that I love is that the first time I played multiplayer with my friends, dispite it being a tad buggy, was that we were genuinely having a good time wandering around the woods in search of more ammo and guns. It was ACTUALLY fun.

At this point though it seems like they'll never finish the game, so the most I can ask, and I really, REALLY, hope this happens. I just ask that they enable a workshop where players could add more creatures and possibly tweak the AI. I could nerd out for days over how fun it would be to mod the game to have something similar to a Cry of Fear Sawer chasing me through the woods with his own gimmics and AI to learn, or perhaps a scrake from Killing Floor 2? You could have numerous twitchers from Afraid of Monsters, or maybe even turn it into a creepy game with zombies or something. There's just so much potential here and I would LOVE to see this game achieve its full potential, and that's why i'm suggesting it.

Attached camera to a pig, went to watch the camera feed at night.
Camera #4 was slowly walking to my camp.
Ran outside and saw it and shot it.
Turns out it was my pig, and meanwhile the Rake was tearing down my camera #5...

10/10 would freak out again.

If you're a huge fan of found footage films, horror, and creepypastas, this is the game for you.

Then again, this isn't worth anything unless I rate it so I give it an 8.5/10

it's upsetting that there haven't been any updates since like 2015. If you're going to abandon a game at least let someone else take it over and continue working on it. other than that it's a good game.

Great idea....terrible execution. The developers have quit working on it :(. No crosshair on multiplayer, only one start weapon, no melee, and if you die, you lose your weapon without a way to find another. Lol ...No invert mouse , controls reset every time you start the game. Its terrible. They need to sell the rights to another group who will actually work on it. These Devs, don't deserve the 10 bucks I just blew lol. I used to love it but now I'm seeing how terrible it is and NO improvements have been made.

Trick: If you find bear traps place them, die, pick one up and you have infinite traps, works on multiplayer not sure about single. 11/9 would cover camp with traps again.



But honestly don't get this game, dev gave up on it. Makes a good gag gift though.

graphics are insanely dated, but the game is genuinely creepy. some interesting ideas, like puting cameras on animals and watching the feed from your base. I Had cameras up , was in my trailer watching the feeds, after not seeing anything i decided to go check my animal trap, when i stepped out of the trailer i saw 4 severed boar heads on spikes right outside, moments like that give the game a nice creepy athmosphere. There are some decent jump scares when actually encountering and fighting the rake. If youve been reading creepypasta's and want a similar gaming experience, id reccomend giving this game a try, you really cant go wrong at this price
