Nice spooky at the end .. good game guys !!


does it have multiplayer

No, it's just singleplayer

Loved EVERYTHING about this and Gemezl kills it with another AMAZING Game!!

good game. (i was ran over in the first minutes)


I never found the mimic… the mimic found me.


very spooky!


Gets very scary on the end, Nice game


its so good!


Very good concept. I was half expecting to have to narrow down one of the residents as the mimic, boy was i wrong. The sounds in the woods are incredibly well done. It's been a while since I've been so creeped by audio alone. Awesome job!

I made a video on your game if you're interested :)

J'ai beaucoup aimé, super jeu. Même si je pense ne pas avoir pu tout exploré et que j'ai un peu des problèmes avec le fait de conduire comme on peut le voir au début du let's play ! :D // I really enjoyed it, great game. Although I don't think I was able to explore everything and I'm having a bit of trouble with the driving as you can see at the beginning of the let's play! :D 


Tried out this horror game!
It had good atmosphere and I like the driving idea for horror! Super fun!


a real fun game and a unexpected secret!

very good game mimic got shot up didnt stand a chance 10/10 worth the piss in my pants


Very fun game we played on stream. My chat loved it! 


Game was good until the end when i was a officer after i heard the roaring i would just die with no time to kill the mimic :


Amazing game,atmosphere is really creepy and disturbing,ending gave me a creeps,also i liked open world,it's making atmosphere more eerie,5\5


The final bit had me screaming like a little girl 😭 i am a trash police officer (on another note, great game! another banger by Gemezl)


The game was very fun and scary, I found it a little amusing at times also. Hope to see more games like this. Great job!


This was a really good playthrough, I really enjoyed the gameplay. having to navigate the way through the map without a gps was a nice touch. And the end scared the literal crap out of me. I made a video if you're interested:


More triple-A game devs should makes games like this. It's bold but simple, and there's beauty in simplicity. Even though I got a bad ending, Mimic Search ticked all the boxes for what a good, quick scary game should be. The environment was the best. Even though it was slightly general, anyone playing through it will sense the uneasiness, as well as believe it could be a real location somewhere very near them. Outstanding!




honestly really enjoyed this one and doing all the detective work it provided, haha!
