creepy game that got me with a few scares, used the feeling of home invasion really well, in an SCP fashion - the tapes were so fun!

hate to be cheeky but here's my video on the game! any support would be madly appreciated so thank you! ;))

The Microwave Paradox | อย่าเอาของที่ไม่ใช่อาหาร เข้าไปอบในไมโครเวฟ


I had a fun time playing this game! This was the second game I played and it was unnerving! I really like the concept of a microwave horror game! it's very goofy! Oh yeah I'm not sure if it's a glitch but as I played through it, items would fall through the floor if they were dropped! Keep up the good work! If you're curious about my experience, then you can check out the video on my channel or watch the video I posted here! Enjoy my agony!

Instructions unclear, I think I broke the microwave!

Neat little game, would play a longer version that built the tension more. 


Surreal experience. Makes me wonder what was going through your head when you decided to make this. 

Thanks for making games!

I dont trust my microwave now. 


Very fun short game, the ending had me spiraling in confusion but I loved it

The ending got me pretty good! I really enjoyed this one, it was a blast to play! Keep up the good work!


Fantastic as always mate! Keep up the good work!

Fun little game, the ending was so unexpected!!

Funny game :) 


Fun little goofy horror game. Love the overall weirdness of it.


Fun game

I review games from Itch since a few years and this one (other than a small crash)is one of the best, it made my day! No spoilers, but the ending made me laugh a lot

Short and Sweet 

U got me!! Good game 👏

idk if my game was broke or im just stupid (im probably stupid)



I really liked the game , it got pretty scary at the end 😁

So the second vhs tape gave me the creeps! I hope you expand on the microwave being your friend concept! I enjoyed your game!

That was pretty good! Very funny, and scary at the end. Also, I really liked the tapes. It added a lot to it xD

Very interesting little game! Had some fun with it!

I really liked it! I loved the style of the training videos! Putting stuff in the microwave was fun! Got me with a dumb corner pop up! Managed to glitch it some which was entertaining.
A fun, short horror game!

What I wish or would like to see: More added to it, other microwave options and effects of items put in, so wanted to put a toaster inside with bread to double cook my toast!, tasting food, never experienced the microwave talking to me... so I do not know if I missed a prompt or not but was warned in the training video.

Overall, had a good time playing!

Great job Serious Daniel!

Had some fun, silly moments while playing and editing while sleep deprived! 

These training videos for this game are awesome!

game looks promising but crashes after you put an item in the microwave for the first time

pretty sweet little game, i was def a little unnerved contradictor yto how i played it lol. i'd reccomend! also dev commented on my channel already, which was kindof insane. props!


This one was really well done, thank you for making! 

I can see you had fun making this game. Truly, a horrifying experience. I'm now scared of my microwave - 

Omg, why is a Condorito Magazine in the game? I'm from Chile and Condorito is a very famous comic.

This game was sick and something different, I really enjoyed it! (here is my playthrough if anyone is interested! game starts at 10:25)

it was a fun unique little horror game lol



Instructions unclear, microwave has adopted me.
