Just in time for Halloween, indie developer Samer Khatib (SnowConeSolid) has released Almond-Hill, a short, freeware horror game for Windows.

Inspired by Konami's Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, Almond-Hill is a brief experience in which players must explore the deserted town of Almond-Hill in search of a runaway cat. You quickly discover that the cat is stuck in a tree, but successfully rescuing it is more complicated than you might expect.

Note: due to a bug, Khatib recommends setting the resolution to 640x480 and unchecking the Windowed option, if you intend to play in full-screen mode.
