About This Game

Playback Trauma: The Beach is a 5-15 minute found-footage horror game set on the beach at night.

Explore and learn more about those who came before you. Make your way to the shoreline where something waits beyond the clouds.


Gameplay: Primarily a "Walking Simulator" with a heavy focus on exploration and story.

Explore: Discover remnants of something that is corrupting the area, and find the shore.

Immersive graphics: Realistic art all seen through the lens of your trusted camcorder.

Setting: The game world is inspired by a real beachside town in New Jersey, and is just as terrifying.

Psychological Horror: Navigate the sights and sounds of the beach without approaching your wits end.
