A short (about 15 minutes) horror game. Explore the sea floor, catch fish, sift through silt to find objects, study in your lab, try to find Eden.

This game is best played with mouse and keyboard. Press F4 at anytime to engage fullscreen mode.

 !!Instructions For Mac Users:!!

If the build I uploaded gives you an error about the file you downloaded being damaged, try downloading through the itch.io app instead (https://itch.io/app). The app seems to consistently work well for mac builds that have trouble opening, and it’s a nice app!  

If you liked this game and are interesting in chatting about it or other Yames games,  consider dropping by my discord server and/or signing up for my Patreon page! I'll be posting about Water Womb World's development process for my patrons and also going into detail about its inspiration.

how to run the game? download only provides a folder without any kind of exe inside (im on windows 10).


hi, i checked out the download links, the one for windows is called 

Water Womb World (hotfix).zip 134 MB

it should be the third button from the top and the folder should have a data.win file, options.ini file, and waterwombworld.exe


Absolutely brilliant! You really managed to pack so much atmosphere and story into such a short game. The art style you've created is super unique too! What engine do you use if you don't mind me asking? 

Excellent short game! Fully immersive with rich details. Hope to see more games in the future!

man, that was an experience, wow


Distilled dread. Loved it.



Really well done, nice tightly composed experience. Faithful to the cosmic horror genre by setting up the horror, executing it in a way that's internally consistent with its own logic, and leaving you to sit there stewing in the fact that while the fear you just felt makes sense, the THINGS you just saw don't make sense, and never will: such is the 'cosmic' in 'cosmic horror.' The visual and audio context serve as rich dressing for the writing, which is well structured and well paced.

In short, a great case study for showing what a solid cosmic horror game can look like in 15 minutes or less.


i LOVE it this is incredibly done, the art is incredible and better for its distortion. 1000000/10 would feed again


This game is so creepy. It's like being buried alive. Excellent.

This was AMAZING! I went in thinking 'oh, the visuals look cool and I love deep sea-horror' and then it was this absolutely weird, uncanny, freaky experience. This is so gorgeous, Yames, you will definitely see me on your other game pages in the next few weeks because this blew me away and I want more (also, I really hope I wasn't too blasphemous in my playthrough).

The game is just great. Loved the Lovecraftian vibes and the creepy atmosphere.


SO glad this is now available for Mac. I am grateful. Hope this is done for your future games

yep I have the capability now so I shouldn't have any problem doing it for future games 


I loved every second of it! Hope you enjoy the playthrough as much as i enjoyed the game, please subscribe too if possible, i would really appreciate that. 


my friends and i love your games so much, we all changed our profiles on discord to match them lol.

love the games and the style, keep it up man

lolll this rocks thanks for showing me

Really great and interesting game, its atmosphere and story are what really made it for me, and the original and unique concept made me love it even more.

Fantastic, loved every bit of it

This game is an incredibly well conceived concept. The visual is impeccable and incredibly detailed. The story and dialogue is really well executed and the atmosphere is wonderfully engulfing. I have like not a phobia but an uncomfortable fear of the ocean and this is great. The mystery and uncertain experience (or creatures) or what was to expect was well done. :)

I really liked this project! You did such a good job with the atmosphere and creating a sense of isolation on the ocean floor! Ty!

*No Commentary*

I included this game in my 2 Scary Games and gosh... I should have maybe taken this a bit more seriously but somehow I could not. Still, great game.

I loved this game. The storytelling and the art style of the game is what made this game shine. Some monsters are best left unknown and this was one of them. Great job on this game. Its the last game in the video.

Dude, it's excellent! Pure Lovecraft spirit of the unknowable taken from books and put into a game. Keep on keeping on!


i loved this. thank you

What an unsettling experience... I really loved the style of this game along with the cryptic backstory. Can't say I've ever played anything like this, and I loved it! Great work! 

Great game to be honest!! keep on the good work, if you publish anything else I will most likely play it!


I would really like to see this fleshed out.  It was good, but so short as to feel rushed.

Good Game. An interesting experience. Congrats!


Good job being on Adam Millards video!

Hey, I saw that,  really cool! thanks for swinging by and giving the game a try.


What an experience! The universe you're able to create in under 20 minutes of game play is incredible. I loved the atmosphere and the look of this game. I played this for my Bloodcurdling Barrage, in which I do daily videos for all of October.


I don't even fully comprehend what happened to me in this game but I loved it. You make such creepy and unsettling atmosphere in your games and it makes them stand out against all the other jumpscare bs out there.

Would you happen to know what typeface is used? I love the font. Great game besides that, of course.

It looks like MS Gothic, to me.

yeah, not sure you didn't already get the answer in the discord, but just in case, it is MS Gothic

Cool concept


Hell yea man, this is the kind of game that makes sifting through itch worth it. The style, the audio, everything in this game felt like it needed to be here. Excited for what you do next.

Loved it, still waiting for Lips for Velum though.

The game start at 15:17

Love the concept! Great atmosphere and visuals for what it is! I became much closer to GOD


I loved everything, the concept, the visuals, the gameplay and the sound. Thank you for bringing this to life, this is extremely inspiring.


Superb work

Wow, this was definitely an intriguing experience. I haven't played a game this creepy in long while. I liked how this game built up the atmosphere of the story until the very end. This was a very enjoyable horror game, keep up the great work! I made a gameplay video for this game if anyone is interested in watching. Thank you for your time and have a nice day! :)
