I loved the atmosphere and the environment. The only nitpick I have is that I wish there was more interaction with the Siren Head, the world seemed a bit empty and vast, given the task we needed to do. Overall not a bad game to play for fun!
Siren Head: Stranded
A downloadable game for Windows
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.
WARNING: CONTAINS GORE AND MILD LANGUAGE!
This game was only made to be compatible with keyboard and mouse at this time. At some point in the future, we may release a patch that supports controllers.

The sounds Siren head is making are insane, gives goosebumps! The graphics, map design, the small story behind it is perfect! I enjoyed this game a lot, even though it was without jump scares! :) Good Job Developer Hex Core! :)
my goofy ahh computer can’t run this even on low graphics. It doesn’t crash but it won’t get past the loading screen. I might just need to wait a bit longer but after like 5 minutes still nothing
the best Siren head game for me !!
What engine was this made with? I'm curious.
Definitely one of the best Siren Head games out there! Absolutely loved it and the AI was so fun trying to figure out!
This SIREN HEAD Game Genuinely TERRRIFIED Me
This is definitely one of my favourite Siren Head. It's almost perfect and I really loved playing it
Captured the essence of Siren head very well and good thing you didn't forgot that it's not a single creature and that there is a whole colony of them. Very atmospheric, love the audio ques for when it approaches and starts walking your way. Balanced quite well in my opinion and thank you for making this!
It says it will take *1 DAY* to download
I had such a good and spooky time playing this game! This is the only siren head game I’ve personally played but out of all the ones I’ve seen this has got to be one of my favorites! One thing that I was very happy about was the waypoint popping up after a while of not finding the right location. I have a really bad sense of direction so that was a lifesaver!
Recharging flashlight makes this game bit hard. ;) 5/5
hex core i want you to add a part 2 to this game and what i want is after we were driving away from 3 Siren head's we crash and get out of the car and run somewhere and they can't find you but you ran into a new aera and now you will have to find another working car that you can use to escape this stranded place one and for all
but does he have to?
If I could give a critic and bug report.
I think the Siren Head jumpscare could use improvement, the camera just waving back and forth while there's a sinister laugh just makes the jumpscare and death scene look a little goofy. It just doesn't feel like a scary looking jumpscare if I'm honest.
Also for the bug report, it's possible to interact with and pick up the shed items through the walls while being outside and without going into the shed at all, also Siren Head can even get you through the shed walls too.
Aside from my one little bit of criticism and the bug report, the game is very damn good, I played it on my channel a long time ago, and I believe this to be one of the best Siren Head games that was ever made and arguably the scariest Siren Head game I ever played. Here's my own gameplay video of it from a long time ago if you are interested.

Awesome game, guys! Super creepy and I love your interpretation.
i love this game so creepy graphics and he way taller the dumm ones are like 10 feet but this one is like 40-50ish
he game is great, I went through it all and it's a pity that there are no further updates :)
Late to the party, but hey? Why not rep what I found to be the best Siren Head experience I've had so far? Very nice work on this my dude! The atmosphere was excellent.
i cant download gives me an error that the file is broken please help i need this
Seems like the download is working just fine for me! Try refreshing the page, or maybe a different browser. Also note that we only have a Windows build available and will not be creating Mac or Linux builds.
I would download it but my heart cant handle it
This is THE best siren head game I've ever played. It is very well made and is really fun to play even when you have beaten it around a dozen times, 10/10. one problem is with this game it that it is SO fun there is enough content but with more it would be way better.
quais são os requisitos minimos para jogar
Possibly the best Siren Head game out there... held a tense atmosphere throughout and some great cutscenes to add into the story. Feel free to have a look at my gameplay below.
We played your cool, tense game here... Siren Head design was the best I've seen and definitely creepy. His crunching bones as he disassembles and reassembles himself will stick with me.
I really liked this one! It shows you put a lot of work into the game and I bet it would TOTALLY be successful on steam if there was a bit more substance to the game. It feels a bit too easy to avoid Siren Head but having him ALWAYS on top of you definitely helped keep things tense. My only gripe was that the flashlight was largely useless.
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.
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!
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!
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.
