'''''The 4th Wall''''' is a first-person {{surreal horror}} game by GZ Storm, the makers of ''Vidiot Game''. It is very bizarre game, taking place in a strange and almost empty void where strange things and {{jump scare}}s can [[spoiler:(and will)]] happen. With a game complete with static mazes, a giant bleeding worm hanging from the "ceiling", and being in a black pit with eyeballs staring at you, you know that [[RealityIsOutToLunch you're in for a]] MindScrew.

It was based off of the fears of Website/YouTube Let's Player LetsPlay/{{azuritereaction}}, such as taking place in a void, being surreal and making no sense, and the game "breaking the fourth wall" [[spoiler:by [[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou having things from the game pop onto your screen after you've completed the game]]]].

You can find it at [[http://gzstorm.com/the-4th-wall/ GZ Storm's website]] for only $1 on PC and [[XboxLiveArcade Xbox LIVE Indie Games]]; older builds are also available on PC for free.

Please do not mistake this one for the [[VideoGame/TheFourthWall similarly-named puzzle-platformer]] without the similarly screwed-up premise.
