A downloadable game for Windows

This is a pre-alpha teaser! Please report bugs and send suggestions!

Play through Hanwell Jail, one of Hanwells many interior locations.

The Game
An open world psychological horror game set in a city in which your worst nightmares have become an everyday part of life.

The Hanwell Council of Public ProtectionWhen the anomalies first emerged, the Hanwell Council of Public Protection (HCPP) was formed to keep residents safe.

Providing equipment and expertise on prevention and preparation. With the help of the HCPP, Hanwell became one of the safest, if most inconvenient places on the planet. But the council has fallen, you try to carry on as normal, but failing equipment and lack of warning has become a major issue. In addition to this, you are being stalked by a mysterious individual who seems to be everywhere.

The rest of the world closed the gates and left Hanwell to rot. Thus begins your journey...

Anomolous

There is something deeply unsettling about Hanwell. Unexplained noises, something in the corner of your eye or laying just beyond the shadows create an atmosphere that will keep you constantly on edge.

Monsters, known in the game as Anomalies, roam the streets. They occasionally get into the once protected buildings. What you do with them is up to you, be resourceful and pick up whatever you can find in order to fight them, if you think you can handle it. Or run. And don't look back.

There is an entire city to explore, featuring different environments each more distinct than the last. From residential homes, old English pubs, parks, and a Jail, all the way to the infamous HCPP research center. Each location holds its own backstory, leading to your arrival. Upon which there will always be something happening.

OK...where to start..so mental hospitals already freak me out (more the idea of how they functioned in the "olden days" more than now) and you throw in a girl that reminds me of the girl from the ring! Yep...safe to say I was a little freaked, but over all a really great demo!!!

This game was super spooky... amazingly well done! I should add the isntall button would not work for me but I found the direct link lower in the comments, so that is there if anyone else has the same problem.

The game isn't able to install

Hey! This looks like it's gonna be a great game, I'll be watching out for the full release on steam for sure!

Heya, even though this is just a small slice of the game it was still great! The atmosphere is set right from the get-go, it puts you at unease with you being trapped in a small environment with weird noises all around you (noise being something that always gets me). The jumpscares were there but they were never really shoved in my face, it was the atmosphere the game set that had me on edge the entire time. I can't wait to see more! I noticed that the game is to be released on Steam sometime this year so I will definitely be keeping an eye on it.   

Hi team, 

Hope you are well. I am Tim, Business Development Lead for Creators Media.

I am looking to get a few editorial pieces as well as a few video pieces created for Welcome to Hanwell.  We have a huge audience, specifically, within the horror genre. 

Get back to me , Tim@nowloading.co

Regards,

Some really impressive Jumpscares. Here is my German LP about it. Looking forward to the game.

Any chance for a Linux build or at least an OpenGL one?

We certainly want to test on other platforms. But right now we don't have the resources. Most likely we'll be testing Linux and Mac versions after the initial windows release.

OK, thanks.

Hi i cant download this game fix the problem pls.

I would rate this 11/10 , this game scared me really good ! I can't wait for the full release :D

Welcome to Hanwell is a beautifully creepy game. The artwork of the prison really captures the feeling of everything gone terribly wrong. It has some excellent atmosphere and I can't wait to see more:



With horror games seemingly losing popularity, Hanwell comes along and says "get ready to poo yourself". Needless to say, I really can't wait for this final product, Mr Seedhouse.


For some reason this game will not install on my pc. I click download and nothing happens. Iv tried like 5 times. Hope its fun all :(

Direct link here, it won't work via the app. Try the link, thanks!

This game is unbelievably high up there when it comes to potential! I expect a lot from you, my friend!


Hi there! I had the chance to play your game for my youtube channel, Unmedicated & Dysfunctional, and write a first look review on Noob Dungeon! You have a lot of potential here and I am so excited to see how you up the scare in the actual game. The atmosphere is very well done already in the Pre Alpha! It reminds me of Outlast! Well done! Best of luck on your release :) I'll be playing!
