Huldufólk was made for the Folk Horror Jam

You play as an archeologist that is hired to survey a build site, to confirm it doesn't include any ancient artifacts. Before you do that, you spend the night at a Bed & Breakfast where the host warns you of Huldufólk, a Faroese folklore.

This was such a beautiful game!  One of my top favorites.  I wrote a full review on my site as well, but here's my playthrough.

Hey, I'm looking for a new horror game to play, but I don't do well with jumpscares- does this have any?

Theres a twist in the end, not really jump scary but can be if your really fragile. I say not really cuz it practically builds up to it and shouldn't be too surprised

Weird game but peaceful

Weird game but peaceful


The graphics moved kinda weird like the textures would ripple. The ending was just so so sad and it just depressed me. This wasn't scary to me but just his fate like man...

I really liked this game, despite it being short, it did get me with a little spook. If this game was bigger, I would have liked more information on the folklore of Huldufólk. I did make a YouTube video, but the video did kind of come out poorly though, but I felt there was so much to unpack in the

short time I was playing.

Amazing game. The voice acting was surprisingly spot-on. The game has one major spook moment but man it is a great spook. Also I like this kind of graphic style (maybe because they aren't large in size). The working of reflections spooked me a lil bit. Overall, a must play 5-minute game. On top of that the size is just a little over 50mb.

great game !!

Bruh, hví havi eg ikki sæð hetta fyrr? Gleði meg til at spæla hetta seinni í kvøld :-)


A short but amazing little game.

For some reason the game started running at like 10 FPS when switching levels into the archeological site. Other than that, no issues. 

IMMA GRAPHIN' MAN (of the photo variety ;{)

Love the folklore feel of this. Your game starts at 4:53

interesting little game that taught me about hikdefolk. i thought the cinematography was well done. set a great atmosphere and captyred the action well.  i will say the affine texture warping was laid on a bit thick, but good game overall.

Loved playing the game! The atmosphere and graphics were really good. Keep up the good work! 


Just found and played the "Huldufólk" game and just wanted to say I loved the graphics! I think this could be developed upon w:)


You really nailed the PSX vibe.  This was fun!


Very nice cinematic touch :D


Interesting little game. I had fun with it. And now I'm reading about Huldufólk :)


I really loved this.. :) so sad cause its short 

this is my gameplay.. its pretty interesting.. i like it.. keep making more games


Loved the graphics and the premises of this game. Looking forward to a fully fledge game. 


Different style
(3 edits) (+1)

Really loved the game, the atmosphere, the graphics and its folklore, the game had some texture oddities here and there, but nothing too important. In my opinion the player's movement speed and the mouse sensitivity were a little bit fast.


I liked the idea and style of this game. It was short, sweet, and to the point. I feel like it can be expanded on further and turned into a larger experience. Good work! I made a video with this game as well!


I can’t believe how much love went into this game!! It’s so good!! 


Read up on the folklore after playing the game and it was pretty interesting! Really cool to see a real life myth taken into a game. Especially one with great sounds, visuals as well as interesting story. The fully voiced surprised me and showed that you guys put in a lot of effort into the game and it was rally awesome to see that. The graphics were elevated by the great music that made everything seem fresh and free and was generally really well made! 

Only suggestions I might add are Huldufolk appearances in the Bed and Breakfast. Maybe add a random pothole or a broken machinery, and it would create this circle of satisfaction for those who noticed it.

But overall, a great game, super glad I stumbled on it and it could be a pay to play game and no one would question it because the quality is there! Great job on the game!

help! whenever i try to move the mouse it just turns up and spins, making it impossible for me to move around >,<
WASD works as intended

if i unplug the mouse while the camera is moving, it will continue to move

Very cool game. I liked the setup and graphics. However its a bit silly hearing the protagonist say its just an artifact on the photo when it clearly shows an outline of a monster. Maybe blur the image a bit? I had fun playing this game!


Love this!!! felt like a teaser for a game I would absolutely play.  had a good set up and pay off and I love the look and the color design.   


I have to say, that I had a good time playing it.
It has this retro style that I always love.
It had some long cutscenes, which I don't really mind.
So overall I don't have any bad experiences of the game.
Maybe the voice acting for ME is a little lame...
...but whatever...


Starts at 10:00

So I actually really enjoyed this game, though I did wish it was longer (but I understand for why it wasn't). It surprised me that Huldufolk is an actual folktale that I haven't heard of yet, so it was definitely interesting to learn about it. And also, the voice acting was a pleasant surprise! Overall, loved it! 😊

What game engine did you use?



Huldufolk Up! this game has potential for a longer version!
