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.


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.

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


I enjoyed the Game a lot, I wished it was longer, but overall excellent game

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


Best sirenhead i played. Didn't finish it yet.

Hope you make another video and beat it man! Pro tip: when Siren Head is screaming at you, run away, don't try to hide. 

Noted. 🤔


The best Sirenhead game I've played so far! The sound choices are phenomenal, the game feels super intense which is always good for a horror game. This game gives Sirenhead justice for being one of the scariest creatures. 

Sirenhead's new "ability" shall we call it, is very disturbing and I love every bit of it!

Great job to the devs of this game, you really outdid yourselves with this one! Can't wait to see more from you guys.

Great video! We spent a ton of time on sound, so we’re glad to hear that time paid off! Thanks for playing the game and the awesome compliment!


Really took this to the next level.. completed the game , loved it.. 😀

Thank you so much for playing! The tediousness of running back and forth between places will get fixed in an upcoming patch. 


This is definitely one of the better Siren Head games I've played, especially visually. The model for Siren Head is Phenomenal in my opinion. Although there were some things I complained about (I talk about them at the end of the video), this is overall a great game, and a lot can come from this. Was a fun play. 


Thanks for the feedback! You nailed the AI on the head and our programmer will be increasing that raduis a bit and ensuring Siren Head doesn't stop after 10 feet. Also, were working on some story changes that will hopefully make a big difference in how tedious the game feels. Stay tuned!

Easily one the best Siren Head games I've played so far! To the devs, thanks for the comment on YT, looking forward to seeing what you come up with next :)

No, thank YOU for playing and enjoying our game!


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! :)

Glad you liked it! We spent quite some time searching for/editing the sounds and creating the model for Siren Head, so those compliments mean a lot! Great video, your reaction at the end was perfect!


I have played a few Siren Head games this is one of the better ones. I managed to beat it in a few tries.

Fantastic intro clip and super smart use of the check point system! Thanks for playing!

No problem, Very ood game. I didn't put it in the video but one time I was leaving the shed walking backwards down the path and watching the siren head.  I bumped a tree and got stuck inside of it with noway of getting out without going to the menu and restarting the checkpoint., just thought I would let you know.


Thanks for letting us know. We'll have to look into that and hopefully patch it soon.


Fantastic game: keep it up. Loved the mechanics


Loved the video, the first time you saw Siren Head transform was the exact reaction we were going for! Thanks for playing!

I can’t flip the beakers at the power station and I can’t reload my saved game the next day. My main problem is the beakers. Anyone know how to help?

Hi! Previous versions had a problem with the breakers, make sure you're on version 1.1.2 or later. If you are, then I'd recommend taking a look at your current objective in the inventory menu or pause menu. I bet that your current objective is to find the Schematics - which is a requirement to flip the breakers. Thanks :)


Pour les Francophones !

Glad you enjoyed the game! 


My first time playing a Siren Head game, but from what I can tell, this is probably the best one in terms of graphics and overall quality. I think there might be a little too much in backtracking, but overall it was enjoyable. I'm impressed by how many cutscenes you had in this, too. Keep up the good work! Looking forward to your group's future projects.


Thanks so much! We'll definitely be coming out with more projects in the coming months, so stay tuned on our socials!

Looking forward to it

The game's one of the best looking sirenheads out there. I only wish there was a  bit more checkposts.

Thanks! Lucky for you, we'll be releasing a build later today with save points after every objective!  :)


can you please make a Graphics change option its very laggy on my computer

Absolutely, we tried our hardest to make the game performant on lower to mid tier hardware, but it was difficult on such a tight timeline. We're looking into providing graphics quality settings as we speak and will have an update out today or over the weekend.

Thanks Man

Version 1.1.1 (available now) gives you a few more options!

Can't get it to install. It says it's installing for a brief moment, and just stops. Also tried installing to my desktop, but get the message that the file is corrupted and unreadable.


Hi! Siren Head: Stranded doesn't really need to be installed, after the download is complete, you just unzip the file (right click, extract all). Then there's a .exe file called SirenHeadStranded that you just need to double click to play! If that doesn't work - it's possible that your download was corrupted. I'd recommend trying to download it again.

P.S. I also added some more detailed download instructions on the download page :)

Okay, I think I know what's happening. It downloads easy, but is split between two folders: The sirenhead folder and a separate downloads folder. And no matter what I do, I end up with a directory error.



Thanks so much for playing!! 


i think best siren head ...i have look lot..this best...hope version for ps4

Thanks for the playthrough!


Nice job on this game. It looks great and Siren Head is creepy as hell. I have one suggestion. It would make my pinky finger very happy if you could toggle crouch instead of holding it. I felt like I had some kind of Kung-Fu claw on the keyboard while playing, haha. I probably crouch too much but I felt like it was necessary.


Thanks for sharing the feedback and for playing! Much appreciated!


wow cool game super good game this game is reailistic


Thank you!


no thank you bc your game is ligit
