Inunaki Tunnel (Translation: Howling Dog Tunnel) is a short Horror Game by Chilla's Art.

In Japan there's an old abandoned tunnel where people have turned up dead. Either they're just plain dead, or their bodies were burned to a crisp. This place is called "Inunaki Tunnel".

You've decided to explore this tunnel in hopes of becoming famous. You've brought along your camera to capture anything unusual on film.

The game was released on Steam for PC on November 29th, 2019.

Inunaki Tunnel contains examples of:

  • Always Night: The game takes place in one night.
  • An Axe to Grind: At one point, you can find an axe that you can use to chop down a tree for a bridge.
  • Apocalyptic Log: These can be found folded up into origami cranes.
  • Bloody Handprint: One of these appears on the phone booth when it finally opens.
  • Camera Abuse: If the Inunaki gets you, the camera lens gets cracked.
  • Location Title
  • Multiple Endings: The game has multiple endings.
    • Recording Failed: The 'Bad' ending, achieved by failing to collect and place all the jizo statues on their altars before using the phone booth to call the police. Shortly after the player finds a phone booth and calls the police, the Inunaki appears, and lunges at the player, cracking the camera lens in the process. The police arrive, but find only a camcorder with a broken lens and unrecoverable files.

    • Recording Successful: The 'Good' ending, achieved by helping the trapped dog, as well as finding and placing all the jizo statues on their altars, then using the phone booth to call the police. The protagonist walks back out to the main road, and a police car drives up to him. He then checks his camera, only to find all his files replaced by a cryptic recording of a girl. Frustrated, the protagonist declares he'll go back again before the tunnel is sealed up.
    • Recording Stopped: The 'Secret' ending, achieved by helping the trapped dog, then taking a right at the split before the phone booth and going all the way down to the end. The protagonist finds an extra note, complaining about people who come to the village purely for thrill seeking purposes, and expressing a desire to put the villagers' souls to rest, as well as the dead body of the dog they'd helped. A ghost then appears, chasing the player all the way out to the road, where they are then hit by a car.
    • Chickened Out: If the player goes back to their car before climbing to the tunnels they have the option to Exit, doing so results in a loud static noise as static fills the camera.
  • Notice This: Items you can interact with have a little yellow icon above them.
  • P.O.V. Cam: The game is viewed through The Protagonist's camera.
  • Turn of the Millennium: The game is set on October 27th, 2005.
  • Video Game Caring Potential: There's a dog stuck in barbed wire. You can choose to help it. It helps you find a jizo statue, which is needed to get the good ending.
