Developed in Unreal Engine 4

Receiving a very positive review score with 96% of 186 reviews Suspicious Downpour is my favorite game I have contributed to.

Suspicious downpour was created for the 2021 Game Jam Aotearoa. The theme was light and dark.

For the game jam I worked with Hamish Oliver and Benjamin Gulliver to create a comedy game that puts our own spin on the horror genre.

Over the 48 hour jam the roles were:

  • Hamish Oliver - Music, Sound, Design

  • Benjamin Gulliver - UI/UX, Design, Programming

  • Jared Bakker (Me) - Graphics/Art, Design, Programming

The core game is focused around building up immersion and expectation and then throwing all away for a intentionally coded poorly coded bear to slide across the ground with no animation and eat a sandwich you throw. 


Welcome to hanawiti forest, a popular location for adventurous backpackers. Pitch a tent and stay the night in our lush and beautiful backyard. Enjoy the wildlife, enjoy the scenery and have an eye out for Mr. Wilson. Just make sure you don’t get caught in a rainstorm.  

Sit in your tent with your trusty flashlight in the calm rain and just relax. Just be warned If you look for trouble you might find it.


Pressing letters and numbers on the keyboard seems to do something, I just haven't figured it out yet...
