What if this game would have a jump scare?
So many times in this game I felt so horribly uncomfortable and felt like there's something horribly dark about it, and the game mechanic where turning around would change the world freaked me out a few times, and I could not get the thought of a jump scare out of my head. Just think if at some point something extremely scary would pop up. WOAHW.

In my opinion, a jump scare wouldn't fit in with the overall ambient theme of the game.

When I was starting the game (up to the yellow gun) I was fully expecting a jump scare or something, just because of how simple some of the things are. I was actually even startled by two things; I was walking down a hallway and all of a sudden the blocks infront of me turned into a portal to another area, and in the "don't look down" room when I looked down XD Actual jump scares just wouldn't make sense in this game though, its meant to be relaxing and interesting, as can be heard from the ambient noise and music

Does have one :D There's an empty white room with a hole in the ceiling, you look into it to see a monitor that says "Don't look down," at which point you promptly do. GIANT EYE STARING BACK AT YOU.

I don't think that is even the slightest bit scary. Nope, it's all good!

I think one or two jump scares in this game would have been fun.
I certainly wouldn't've expected it.

It'd be hard to do, however, since nothing can hurt you, and it would be out of place for anything to make a sudden loud noise.

the only real "jump scare" is one minorly startling moment that imo is really really awesome

Care to share which moment that is?

I liked Don't Look Down, with the giant eye. I wouldn't like if this game had real jump scares in it though. I did jump slightly at one point, when I jumped at a wall I thought was glass, ended up going through it, and fell down a large pit on the other side.

the "pireted" version?

anyone stupid enough to "pirete" this game deserves being suddenly screamed at

Jump scares would not fit the ambience. You're alone and thats intended.

Going to get so much flame for it but if there's jump scares it'll be 'played' by Pewdiepie and that'll just compose of him screaming of being sexually assaulted by the blue cubes and generally being far too loud in general.
