Scorch is Out!

You can play the game right now, absolutely free. After almost a year of development, publishing, and critical feedback, it's done. It's over.

Now you can experience Scorch on Steam in all of its glory. Brag to your friends about how much time your poured into it, put it on your wishlist, write a snarky review on the store page... think of all the posibilities!

Of course you can still tell us about what you want to see inside the game in the future and you can always report any bugs you find to us.

It has been a real journey to develop this game and I was able to learn a lot about game dev and publishing.

This game would not have been possible without Lea Bormann, Huang Chen, or Lauritz Vogelsang. I am thankful to have been part of such an ambitious team.

“clever little detective adventure with a well thought out murder mystery to solve”

“It’s an atmospheric, narrative adventure game that has you scavenging the area for clues and evidence so you can solve the mystery of whodunit.”

About This Game

It's been 30 years since a terrible arson attack erased an entire family. Until today the culprit has been on the loose. You are sent to investigate a similar incident in this narrative exploration game.


Irresponsible police detective (and part-time alcoholic) Gary Price is sent to investigate the murder of forest ranger Mike Hill. This is Gary’s last chance to save his job, as his boss Chief Gonzales grows impatient. Navigate Gary through this narrative exploration game and discover the truth about Mike Hill’s death!

The story of Scorch takes place in Beaverton, Oregon. As you play the game you can take in the beautiful scenery of the Tualatin Hills Nature Park. Uncover small mysterious as you interact with the environment: opening doors, drawers, even messing with the TV.

Gonzales will give you calls in regular intervals to check up on you and make sure you're not slacking off. Keep in mind you only have one day to solve the case. Finally, be wary of calling in the suspect: you only get one shot to answer her questions at the end.

Inside the game Gary can use his phone to organize and inspect evidence, answer calls from Gonzales, and review memos he receives while playing the game. Scorch features an original soundtrack and full voice acting.


If you're a fan of Firewatch and Gone Home, you'll love this game.
