The ambience and sound effects really make this game unsettling. It's nice to see a disturbing game that uses sound as a main element of making the gameplay unsettling.
Carrots and Cream
A short horror game about picking carrots, making dinner and connecting with nature.
Made for the AsylumJam 2015 on GameJolt.
Play with the mouse/touch. Click and sometimes click+drag.
If the game runs slow (especially on older Android devices, turn off 'effects' in the menu)
"Luckily, I'm not such a big eater of carrots. For if I were I think playing the Asylum Jam entry Carrots and Cream would have been [...] detrimental to my life."
- Kill Screen
"I'm not sure I'll ever look at carrots in quite the same way again."
- PC Gamer #288
"Absolutely horrific tale involving vitamin-rich carrots and thick, delicious cream. Short but definitely not sweet."
- Rock, Paper, Shotgun
- Added 'Effects' option to menu, turn off to disable full screen image effects on older hardware.
- Fixed some minor issues, mainly related to timing of audio and animations.

I like it
Works Great on My Computer
I'm disgusted. I ate a worm for god's sake! At first I was the guy digging up the carrots and I'm like ''What can possibly happen?'' and then I was a worm trying not to get killed by myself? But, I reached to the biggest carrot and the screen went black. Then, I was back at shredding carrots but then, when I went to the huge carrot, I ended up shredding the worm and the noise it made was disgusting!
i give this game 5/5 carrots
It really made me FEEL like a carrot
I like how simple it is. Makes you want to keep playing and there's some sense of accomplishment early on. Kind of reminds me like the crane arm games in malls and such. The audio is kinda bugged for me, using Firefox and macOS Catalina. Would definitely like to see an iOS port.
Thanks for the comment! Yeah the sound bug will be fixed when I upload an overhaul of the game (hopefully) soon. Unfortunately I don't have the equipment for an iOS port :(
this game was very interesting because I never knew what was going to happen but that also made me like it i give this game 5 carrots out of wow.
I like it... and I dont know why(?)... It looks like a terror parody, like, anything can turn into terror if you know how to do it...
It has some sounds problems (i could really notice the loop ending, per example). But in general it was cool and unsettling, I dont know what you want it to do, but in some way I think you made it.
I was stuck on the same screen of the worms dying for waaayyyy too long, is this a glitch?
Hmm not really, you're supposed to keep going to complete the game. But I guess if it feels like a glitch it could be better :)
this gave me anxiety while playing w h yyyy
Hopefully not for real! It's supposed to be disturbing, but fun-disturbing. Funsturbing...?
This may be a short game but it certainly is horrific! The sounds just make everything even worse (in a good way!). Definitely recommend headphones for this game! This game makes me think about the next vegetable I eat now. Maybe I'll stay away from vegetables for a while... Awesome game! Thanks so much and keep up the good work!
How do you play on touchscreen?
You mean with a touchscreen on a computer? Or on Android?
It should work with just tapping and dragging your finger around, but I don't think I've tested it on a PC touch screen. I'll give it a try when I get the chance.
Thank you for replying! This is a touchscreen on an iPad.
I see. I'm afraid that's not supported :/ I don't think web builds run well on an iPad browser and unfortunately I don't have the equipment to build an iOS app.
And if you're playing on a computer let me know if it's the browser version or the downloaded one :)
Thanks, I hate it!
All jokes aside, this a wonderful game!! I was hooked and understood the concept very quickly. It made me feel very uncomfortable but in the good kind of way lol. I'm definitely gonna check out your other games :)))
its not working, the program keeps quiting and i keep getting a blank screen when i load up the browser version, the sound effect work but im getting no visuals
It's strange that neither the download or the browser version works for you. Do you see the menu? The game does start with a blank screen and just audio for a few seconds so maybe you just need to wait a bit?
But the crash shouldn't happen. I'd like to know what OS and browser you're using if you don't mind and I'll look into it. :)
Really interesting concept. Thanks for nice experience! :)
Really nice mate. Would love to see you expand on this ideia. looking forward for your projects
that was fantastic
I had no idea what to expect going into this game..but I was not disappointed! Very unique, very entertaining! Awesome job devs!
This was one of the worst experiences of my life. This was perfectly crafted. The sounds, the worm... Great work :D
Wow just wow : / that was one story
Oh jeez..I’ve always not liked carrots but this gives me an even bigger reason not to eat them! Never know if a worm will climb into it and then go into your body and out your boo-teh.
This game was weird to play and in a good way because it got me confused as to what I’m playing and made me contemplate on what life is. Haha. Keep up the good work!
(Btw, this is an old upload and I didn’t post it when I uploaded it because I didn’t have an Itch.io account then)
this was too scary for me 18+
This game was pretty weird and ridiculous however, THESE ARE THE SORT OF GAMES I LOVE. Keep up the good work. yout game is the 4th game I played in the video.
AND I SAY HEY! HEY!
ALL I WANT TO DO IS PLAY!
5 RIDICULOUS HORROR GAMES!
AND GET OUT OF THIS NIGHTMARE!
can you put it on the App Store?
Unfortunately you need both Apple hardware and money to put stuff on the App Store, so as long as I'm not selling the game I wont be putting it on there. Sorry :)
Hello! Played this game on our channel. Thought it was really cute and the idea is absolutely great! Thank you for creating this, had lot of fun!
I use an Acer Chromebook, it doesn't run in in my Chrome browser. I really wish I could play the game!
Ah that's too bad. I have no way to test a Chromebook :/ Do you know if you've played other Unity Web games on it?
This is definitely not what I expected. Phenomenal work for an Asylum Jam! And yes, I know I'm three years late... xD
i had no sound in the browser version
That's no good! Mind telling me what browser and operating system you're on? And you have sound in other html5 games? :)
it dosen't runs
Oh no, did you mean the browser version?
I'd like to know which browser/operating system you're on, if you don't mind :)
you are very lucky
Pretty good for a game jam, but the sound design is plain obnoxious. It feels like someone is loudly chewing next to you, which is NOT creepy, just annoying.
