«Don't believe everything you see»

The game Locked Up is a psychological thriller in the first person.

WARNING: Epileptic seizures associated with increased sensitivity to light are Possible. Some people may experience seizures when exposed to flashes of light and flashing images that appear in a video game. People who have not previously experienced such attacks may not be aware of their illness. A reasonable restriction of the game audience is recommended.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The player assumes the role of the main character, relying on their intuition. The main focus of the game is on exploring the environment in a closed space, which will change after interacting with it. It is important to carefully study the details of the game. The tension will increase over time, creating the effect of insanity. The plot is revealed not linearly, almost without notes in the game world.


The game takes place in a house where previously there were terrible events. You have to repeatedly wander through the same corridor, in order to uncover the causes of insanity and understand who you are. Be patient, and the house will open previously locked doors and show you frightening memories of the past. The narrative of the story is transmitted through the environment. Each item tells a story, relying on your imagination. Only the player decides to reveal the idea of the game and be in the center of events, escape or pass it as a room of fear.


The developers describe the content like this:

The game contains images of scenes of violence that can have a negative impact on the psyche. Please also keep in mind that there are scenes of alcohol or drug use in the game. Some content items may not be suitable for certain age categories. A reasonable restriction of the game audience is recommended.

Simplemente maravilloso, deberían hacer más juegos así, me ha encantado jugarlo. // Simply wonderful, they should make more games like this, I loved playing it.

love the game it was so good keep up that good work

This game was so much fun and had me freaked out the entire time.  Wish more games would learn from your games.  Here is my playthrough.  Definitely at the top of my list of games I enjoy.  Highly recommend.

I do believe this one is my favorite one from you guys. I love the unsettling ventures of the hallway!

That was fantastic. I knew some parts were familiar but had no idea the demo was all over Youtube a while back. Happy to see the full product, well worth the money ! 

I made a video on your game if you're interested :)

Played Sept. 7th and it made my being happy so I decided to give Locked Up a try. Much longer than I had anticipated but very nicely done. I look forward to playing the rest of the catalog. Thank you for making proper scary.

https://www.twitch.tv/videos/1698614179 I streamed your game yesterday its at 1hr 8mins to the end of stream. I really enjoyed playing your game.

This game scared the crap out of me one of my new favorites!

EMIKA.. What a wild ride this game was. GENUINELY SCARY fr fr. Ended up playing the whole game in 1 sitting and it never got dull. 9/10 from me 🤙🏻

developer what's the catch I thought I tied the full version of the game or it seems to me from that I see the inscription from above ? ;/ 

yeah, I paid attention to the versions of the game, they are different, I'm not attentive

Hello. Yes, the versions are different. There is a paid version and a free demo. Do you still have a question?))

and you can make horror using tattletail as an example, if the developer allows it, excuse me English this google translate

This is the 3th and final part of my gameplay!

This game was quite an experience, very well put together!

Really loved it, loved the atmosphere and the ambience

This game scared the crap out of me one of my new favorites!

This is part 2 of my Locked Up experience!

This game is awesome! Love the ambience and the atmosphere in this one

This is part 1 of my playthrough


The game really is great for the horror moments and scares. I was confused with the narrative for most of the game, though the ending really managed to pull everything that I had experienced together.

I feel like the game became a bit of a click on everything till something happens halfway through, either I was confused what to do next or was having to wait for the next event. At the same time there were so many amazing horror moments within the hall, the scares were great and a lot of cinematic creepy moments. My favourite part was where the daughter was shouting endlessly from the room, it really made the game feel like it is set out of time and you are experiencing the moments of the past.


I purchased the winter bundle with this, find yourself and summer of '58. I recently restored my pc and lost the files but it wont let me redownload from my itch page.

I purchased the bundle and I get this error each time I try to download them

Hi! Write to me in the mail hawkeys1991@gmail.com There are problems with shopping on itch right now since I am in Russia.

thank you!

Awesome horror elements! I got legit creeped out at SEVERAL parts of this game. The story is a little hard to discern, but that said, I am not smart lol 
For real though, well worth the price and you should definitely check this game out.

Check out my gameplay here! 

It's really good and a nice horror trip. Also do not miss out on the other great Emika Games. Wanna take a gameplay look:

final part of my gameplay of locked up, what an amazing experience this game was and I couldn't recommend it more, so what are you waiting for?  

(1 edit)

really enjoying this game, emika games, you make some of the most physically mind baffling and scary games loved every minute! 

i haven’t seen this bad work in my life! Using same models from phasmo, using same map from PT demo, using ideas from RE. How lazy are you?! Can you even make your own graphics?


ha ha.  The map is drawn by me and there is no connection with PT.  they are completely different.  My game came out earlier than Phasemaphobia.  Models are bought on the same marketplace)) Do not blame them for something without understanding.


write it right, Blair Witch!  not RE


u mad bro


Holy crap Emika Games..... your games are on a whole different level I swear.... Good Scares gives be the heebbby jeeebbyy!

This game scared the crap out of me one of my new favorites!

a brilliantly made demo which was really scary! and I look forward to the full game. 

My only constructive critique was the gaps in between things happening seemed to be ever so slightly too long for me personally, but aside from that I enjoyed!

Check out my video and subscribe if you enjoy. 

All round fab game. Great atmosphere and super scary spooks.

Love all of the games you have made they certainly have the right element of scare in them. You really are fantastic at making horror games.
I'm hoping you continue with 'FDTD' as I really enjoyed that demo and would love to see the full version.

Keep up the amazing work!

Here is part 2 of my game play x

Absolutely brilliant

Here is part 1 of my game play x



Holy COW!! , what a game!! must play this, did this Live on Twitch took about 1:38 hrs but well worth is.

This was well worth the time and money.  For those wondering, it's sort of a blend of the mechanics from P.T. and Layers of Fear, with a bit of REVII (the videotape mechanic). 

The story is disjointed, but I feel like I was able to make decent sense of it by the end.  Trying to piece together the mystery through the environment is one of the game's big strengths - you never feel completely in control or at ease.

I can't wait to play the rest of the Emika library, as I picked the bundle up on sale.  

A masterpiece of a horror game. I'm still having trouble sleeping. EmikaGames is one of the best Indie horror game devs out there.
