"In some instances, a choice merely perturbs a companion, while in others, it determines whether they live or die." - TIME

Buried is a playable, interactive story told through stunning photos, a haunting soundscape, and gripping text. You play the role of Roger Hastings, a logger working the forests with his crew. When he awakens to find his friends missing and no memory of what's happened, he begins searching, uncovering something that should have stayed hidden...

Make choices that affect the plot: how to approach danger, who to trust, and who lives or dies.

No waiting or pauses - play straight through or at your own pace through 5 intense chapters.

What's beneath the surface? Where is your crew? And what will your decisions reveal about you?

More Praise for Buried:
"Buried is in a way a piece of interactive fiction that introduces more extreme branching choices than most other interactive fiction games." - Touch Arcade

Immersive and Engaging

Cooper Welch

As videogame graphics continue to advance, I’m always amazed at how compelling text can be as an interactive storytelling medium. Buried is a refreshing and engaging interactive narrative experience that is extremely well-crafted - a reminder that simple text-based adventures can be just as powerful as other more graphically-intensive games. I was easily pulled into the world of Buried and found myself eager to keep reading and uncover the truths behind Buried’s mysteries. The plot and dialog are interesting and well-written, and the background images compliment the story nicely. The game’s interface is very well-done…blocks of text fade in and automatically scroll at a good pace to keep things moving along (you can also manually scroll if you feel like it), and the text itself is easy to read. I was also really impressed with the audio design - the game has some great ambient sound tracks that heighten the mood and make the experience even more immersive. If you’re a fan of narratives or interactive fiction, I highly recommend Buried!

One of the few games I call great


Look there are people who think they have played a good game. They all lie, there is almost no other game that has made me feel like this. It makes you regret, sad, scared, happy, entertained, and plain up joyous. This game is so worth the 3 dollars. It took me 3 hours to finish one story line. Truthfully I just had one problem with my ending. They could have had such a stronger ending for some. They could at least added a love interest into a fraction of the endings but go buy it and play it. Imagine the scenes yourself and you will feel scared and anxious by the end but that's why it's a great game. It makes you feel things that aren't just frustration and entertainment. But it play it cry over it, This is a game worth everything it is for. Please buy this game.

Incredibly accessible horror game

Kasey Alexandra M

It starts out slow, setting the scene and characters. But sticking with it is worth it, as the mystery begins to unfold and you're thinking, what the hell is going on here. And you really want to find out. I love the standard branching narrative features, like advising you when a decision is important and telling you at the end of the chapter how you compare to other players. The best part though, is that it is all text. I HATE HATE HATE horror in general, but the lack of graphics and jump scares makes this incredibly accessible! It still sets a creepy tone, but a creepy tone I can definitely handle. Excited to finish the rest of the chapters!
