Your car ran out of gas on a nearly abandoned country road in the middle of nowhere. Stranded and alone, your only hope to leave this unsettling dark forest is a gas station that's down the road. But something else lurks in these woods and stalks you from afar, taunting you with horrifyingly unnatural and alarmingly loud sounds. Can you escape with your life?

Your flashlight is your best friend in this hellish soundscape. It will help you find your way. But be careful, that ... monster ... hears your every move.

 We played it on our channel. this game is really well made and a lot of fun and frights! Gunna try to beat the game off cam for sure! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=60K7Y4KOg8Y

Can't download using the itch.io desktop app on Windows 10. Says unsupported compression algorithm. Was able to download using a browser, though.

This is the first in the Siren Head genre i have had the pleasure of playing so far an it is honestly really well made and disturbingly creepy to play.

The cold lonely forest atmosphere is spine tingling and the ambient fog really adds to the tension in the air as you try to keep your eyes out for Siren Head.

Siren Head itself is absolutely terrifying and the alarming sounds that it makes really make you panic and put you on edge as it hunts for you in the woods and the fact it can morph into a lamppost is also very clever.

There were a couple of negatives within the game that kind of subtract from the experience , the first is the "convenient" notes and map placements to start the story it feels like you are being helped a little too much in the beginning , and the second is a glitch where you can grab the contents of the toolshed without even opening up the shed itself.

All in all though the game is really nice and a great horror experience, as i mentioned earlier for an introduction into the Siren Head series this is honestly very impressive.

So far best Siren Head game I have tested :)

Hey, this game was amazing!  The sounds were insanely creepy and well made.  I will put my gameplay below.  Speaking of my gameplay, this leads me to a question regarding a copyright claim made by [Merlin] Idol Distribution for Sound FX.  I couldn't find a lot on this, but I did find several threads on YouTube, reddit, and the likes about their claims being false.  I haven't done anything about it yet, but I am asking if you, the creators, have any knowledge of this?  Thank you for reading this block of text.  I highly enjoyed your game.


Update: I disputed the claim.

I looked at what portion of the video was copyrighted and found it to be a siren sound.  Again.  This is the second time a siren head gameplay on my channel has been copyright claimed because of a siren.  Last time it was a song that used a siren.

If this happens to anyone making a gameplay on this or any other siren head game, check what portion of the video is copyrighted, and most likely it will be a siren which is a real-life sound created by tornado, air raid, or other emergency sirens.  Just dispute it with public domain and explain what a siren is.

Amazing game!  I especially love seeing something made by Unreal Engine, as it is awesome.

UPDATE 2:  They removed the claim.

It was a super cool concept how he uses the street lamps as a way of teleporting and the size of this guy was insane!! I loved how different audio was added too so, it wasn't just the basic siren sounds!

Holy cats is this cool. Definitely going back to finish this one!

"Gross, brush your teeth"  It might eat you, but at least it's more aware of dental hygiene now. Thanks for the play through, it was great!


This had me on edge the entire time. You really knew how to create that Siren Head feel. I swear at times Siren Head was talking to me lmbo.

Awesome playthrough! I liked your reaction at the end! Thanks for the compliments man, glad you enjoyed it!


That was a fantastic game! I definitely enjoyed it!

Thanks for the play through man! Glad you enjoyed it!


Out of all the siren head games I have played this one is the best by far. The graphics were great, the gameplay was amazing. The sounds you can hear from siren head in the distance are very eerie. Amazing game overall.


Glad you enjoyed! We spent quite some time tuning and polishing to game, so that compliment means a lot.


Amazing. I had never played a Siren Head game before and this was a great way to start it off. It's a very well rounded game that manages to be scary and also fun to play. 

That balance was exactly what we were going for, so I’m glad we successfully pull that off! Thanks for playing!


Here's my gameplay which starts at 25:55


“Somethings not good here” sums up the character’s experience pretty well lol


Best siren head game ever!!! High Graphics make this game like real, i have best scary moment at this game.

Great play through! Glad you liked the game!


I like your work thanks for the efforts. :)

Super quick play through, nice job!

Thanks :)


Very cool!! I made you guys a lil video:" 

Thanks for the lil video! Happy you had fun playing it!

< 3


Full Play

Fantastic reaction at the end man! Glad you enjoyed!

thanks buddy!

I just want to report a bug that isn't frustrating but it does make the game easy to beat, you can pick up things in the shed through the walls and easly get the pliers without unlocking the door. i hope this helps improving the game more.

Whoa! Thanks for letting us know! Should be an easy fix.

Nicely done game. Had fun playing it. 

I'm so happy you noticed Tiny Box Tim! Thanks for playing!

That was amazing! Out of all the games trying to capture the feeling of the creepypasta, Yours definitely takes the cake! The assets look great, the shading and ambient fog lower the visibility so much that you have to rely on your hearing, creating that terrifying feeling when you hear the siren sounds moving around you. And of course, the audio samples are just amazing! The ending also broadens the Siren head lore as a whole, so that's a Bonus point! 21/20! It was a pleasure to play this game, and I look forward to what you make! In the mean time, I've made a video of my experience with this game, if you want to check it out!


Thank you so much! I'm glad you liked it, it was fun to listen to you try to figure out how the AI determines when to attack you.


Hey, no problem! I loved that part, it was a whole new mechanic you created for the monster and (when I finally understood it) I loved it!

This is definitely one of the better siren games I have played and definitely the best siren head monster i have seen! The sounds it made, the size and the grotesque nature of siren head was amazing! Keep up the good work my friend! :)

Thank you! We spent quite a bit of time tuning the audio and tweaking the Siren Head character mesh to make it as unsettling as possible.

Very well made game! Great atmosphere and a good length.
Really enjoyed it (even though I shit myself lol)

That is by far the best compliment you could ever give us! Thanks for playing!

This Game looks So Good.

This is the best Siren Head Game I have played so far! The fear factor is nice and creepy. The graphics are well done. 

Thank you so much! We spent quite a bit of time tweaking the game so it would be as creepy as we could make it.

I loved this game!! This is literally the best Siren Head game i've ever played! I loved this I really did get scared and thank you for this game! I hope to see more games from you bro!

Thanks for the compliments man! We really tried to make the game stand out and we're glad we could could scare you!


Thanks, our artist spent a ton of time making it look just right!

I think this is perhaps the best Siren head game I have played to date, there have been so many I have lost count but this one actually has a sense of progression. Great graphics and gameplay mechanic, the cut scenes threw me off though but otherwise great game!

Thanks for playing! We put a lot of effort into making SH: Stranded stand out from the crowd, it's good to see that its working!

One of the best Sirenhead games out there by far, top 3 at least. The hiding mechanics were a bit hard to figure out at first but doable. 5 stars!


Glad you enjoyed it! There's a lot of Siren Head games out there so we definitely appreciate being in your top 3 (especially if SH: Stranded is at the top of those three lol). Thanks!

I promised a second part! Here it is! 

Glad to see you made it to the end! While we don't intend on adding any more story to this game, follow us to learn about our future projects!

Hey i had to stop playing your game because i cut my leg open LMAO and i'm too scared of the sirens!

We did our best to make Siren Head creepy without relying on jump scares, it's good to know it worked! Thanks for playing!

Part one of 2 . I love this game a lot, played the first episode on the old version before updating it.  It's a solid masterpiece of a story in my opinion! I'd love to see a lot more of this. 

Great video! Thanks for the feedback, though we can't take too much credit for the story/lore - the community around Siren Head has done a lot of that leg work, we just put it all together!


Probably the best Siren Head game I've played so far, little bit too much back and forth but otherwise a solid 📣📣📣📣 out of 5.


Thanks for the feedback! Your video was great, especially when Siren Head was just camping the gas station.

Hello there, I tried this game and I must say, this is the first Siren Head game where I actually saw Siren Head as a constant threat. Well, or as a threat at all. I will try to make a full playthrough of this so if your curious then you can check my video. It's completely uncut.

Thanks for the compliment, that was what we were going for! Can wait for a Part 2 of your play through!

Glad to hear and as I promised here is Part 2 but I probably need one more episode. I really wanna finish this.


Ok, this is one of the best Siren Head Game I have played so far! The fear factor is nice and creepy. The graphics are well done. I am so thankful that you added checkpoints, seriously thank you. I grabbed a lot of items but I wasn't sure if they ever had a purpose or just anesthetics (sunglasses? at night?) Overall great job! Only thing feedback I can think of is maybe add more scary parts like a jump scare in one of the sheds.

Thanks for the video and feedback! The chase at 9:55 was the most stressed out I've been watching all the play throughs! Keep up the good work!


I promised to make part 2 on this and here it is! :D

Ah... the good old "The last cinematic doesn't play" bug. We fixed that in the most recent update. Awesome play through though, thanks for making a part 2!

Your welcome I really enjoyed the game! :D


I LOVED this game! The combination of the footsteps and the size of Siren Head really brings an intense atmosphere! Graphics are good, controls are good, and it seems to hit a mark with how the gameplay flows! Nice job!

This video was great! Your reaction when the 'laughs' after the first cinematic was priceless!


Do you have a chainsaw?

Not sure why you'd need a chainsaw, but thanks for playing the game!


Great Game! I will continue it on my next video! :D

Thanks for the play through, can't wait for part 2!


Really cool game, man. Really cool game.

Hope you make another video and beat it, keep up the great work!




That intro clip is great! Thanks for playing the game, can't wait to watch part 2! 



Thanks for playing the game and thanks for the shout out at the end of the video!

Glad you liked it man and thanks for the little shout out at the end, it means a lot!
