as soon as i saw it was created by Emika Games i had to play this!!, the atmosphere and the sound visuals were extremely creepy, the jumpscares got me good HAHA !  

(1 edit)

Decent (3/5), but definitely not EMIKA's best work. Summer of 58 was definitely the best of the bunch and I quite liked Father's Day and Locked Up too. The recent games are still enjoyable, but a bit lack luster by comparison.

This game has some really annoying visual effects that I couldn't turn off. I think they were meant to be night vision/VHS camera effects, but they were way more distracting in this game than in other games with those visual effects. The effects disappeared when in loading screens and during certain parts of the game, so I'm presuming the effects are intentional. In future, please tone down those effects or at least give the player an option to turn them off.

The English text is also pretty rough. You'll understand the story, but just barely. There isn't much text, so I'm guessing you could easily find a native English speaker online to proof read the scripts for future games for little or no money.

Crazy good game! I like scary, under 1 hr. games and this really hit my jumpscare radar! Nice work!

All your games are super creepy!! Even your intro screen gives me anxiety! Thank you for another amazing game. Grisha did too much 🤣 God help us...not sure what he unleashed into the world.

I delved further into the Witch's house. I really love how consistent the atmosphere in this game is - it feels like I'm being stalked pretty constantly. Also appreciate the added puzzles and tying it into the universe. Always impressed by Emika Games' horror titles

Is there a lore reason why the mannequins are thicc?

Regardless, scary game and great atmosphere.



I've never been jump scared so bad

I Loved this game soo much!
Emika_Games their games always make me sh*t my pants haha. Can't wait till the next game! ^^

This Is The Scariest Game Of The Year | I'm counting to 6... | Indie Horror Game

This game is good but slightly confusing due to it being translated from Russian. well worth the $7 but now extra worth it at 50% off. Gameplay time is about an hour... but the more experienced you are with these types of games it will likely actually be around 40ish minutes.

It's bad that this was my least favorite Emika game so far, but was still fantastic and way better than almost anything else on the market. Another fantastic game from Emika that doesn't disappoint!

Great jump scares! It got a little repetitive, but the atmosphere keeps you on edge! A little more clarification on the story would be nice. The ending was a bit of a let down. Overall, I really enjoyed it. September 7th is still the best IMO.

Loved the game, ngl this has to be the game with the best jumpscares,totally gonna play more games from you, keep up the hard work...

I have never been this scared while playing a horror game, well done Emika_Games, here's my video on ur game 

There's something about that persistent atmosphere in Emika Games titles that I both love, and keeps me on the edge of my seat whilst playing. 

this horror game was sooooo go it scared me pretty good made me feel that there was some one washing me all the time 

Another amazing game! Loved the atmosphere and the tension! 

Really great graphics, got me a few times. I still think Summer 58 still got me more then this one though xD

HANDS DOWN one of the SCARIEST games of 2024! Can't recommend this enough! Don't Believe me? Check out my Gameplay Below! :)

Really good game! The jumpscares get predictable but the atmosphere is prefect!

I've played almost all of Emika Games. Here is I'm Counting to 6, where, you are in a small village that is hiding something sinister. The jump scares work quite well as always. I love the hidden Easter eggs that show up from some of Emika Games other games.

Dnes se naučíme počítat! | I'M COUNTING TO 6... | INDIE HORROR GAME

add korean

Technically impossible. Korean, Chinese, and Japanese languages in the game cause technical problems with text translation.

weird, I saw other unreal game with korean

It would be cool if that person told you how he was able to fix the technical problem.

how about contacting unreal support?

He doesn't answer anyone)



Such a fan if these games from Emika Games


This was such a fun ride. Kept swinging out the horror and nailing it when it happened. Atmosphere always hit the dot, the story was great and the jump scares spooked ya. Good job!

Can you optimize this game for low-end PCs?

The game is made on Unreal Engine 5, running the game on weak PCs is a problem.

can you manage to do it in anyway , some games like these developed by others are really optimized and can be played in very low end pc's , 

this game showed me how much of a scared baby i am


Как всегда отличный хоррор.Спасибо!!!


great job on this game


I have been a huge fan of Emika Games for a while now so when I see a new one, I attack it like it's a fresh pizza.  Keep up the great work

All of Emika's games are truly immersive experiences, setting up jump scares, eerie atmospheres and disturbing presences with aplomb - I'm Counting To Six is no different. Hats off to the sound design with this one, from the squelching of mud underneath the foot in the first segment, to the creaky floorboards, clapping hands and other ghastly noises and sounds, the player really gets the feeling they're in a dilapidated house with spooky shenanigans happening around them. 

Emika games are fast becoming a solid independent horror game developer, and I can't wait for their next instalment. 

The only criticism for 'I'm Counting to Six,' would be the convoluted plot - I wasn't entirely sure if the boy was the witch's son, if they had kidnapped children when they grew up as the townsfolk were responsible for her death, etc - but apart from that everything else was on top notch form.    


The story was pretty good and I liked the pacing, nice job!

its very scary and unique and 

I'm enjoying the story so far

there was an area from fathers day in this game which i thought was cool


Love your games, Just let me know if you need translate to Spanish

I had a lot of fun playing this one! 
It had a dark story and it was disturbing! The spooks got me good and I loved the details. I also HATE mannequins and dolls, so this really made me terrified. 
I made a video on it! Keep up the good work!


Hungarian playthrough,with Hungarian subtitles!

The game is a great comeback for Emika Games.

Thank you very much!
