About the Story

It's happened again. You've had a great night riding around, freaking everyone out with your whole headless horseman thing, and you're about to set off for home when you realise you've lost your head. Well, it can't have gotten far...

Made in three hours for Ectocomp 2013.

A fun, short speedIF about finding your head, July 1, 2017

Related reviews: less than 15 minutes
In this game, you have to ride everywhere looking for your head.

It had good descriptions, and was humorous. It was voted as having some of the best cover art, because its cover is also its map.

Its so short that I can't say much without spoiling the game, but it's a fun way to spend 10 minutes.

humorous although at times frustrating short game, December 3, 2013
by streever (America)
This is a short game with an amusing ending. It is incredibly short--a one-gimmick essentially--created in three hours for EcoComp 2013.

Despite this, there were no glaring flaws or technical errors, and the game worked well. It was an amusing although short experience, and at times frustrating.

Brilliant trolling games by Not Troll
Some games are just that bad, some are so bad it's good, and a few are obviously trolling. Yet, are there games that troll so much that they start to be brilliant? Or even those that seems to be trolling that turn out to be brilliant...
