What could be so scary about clowns?

Today Is My Birthday is a First-Person Survival Horror Video Game by Wonder Games.

The game stars Thomas, a photographer who doesn't care much for birthdays. When he was a kid, he and his dad used to go to Wonder Park, an amusement park that held many a happy memory for both of them. Unfortunately, the park closed down a few years ago due to earthquakes in the area. His dad passed away a few years ago, too. After those events, birthdays kind of lost meaning to him.

Well, today is Thomas' 25th birthday, and he's decided that he's going back to the ruins of the place that meant so much to him. What's he go to lose?

The game was released on October 30th, 2020 and can be downloaded here.
