ROGUELITE SCI-FI HORROR

JOIN US ON DISCORD

A meteor fell on Earth and an unknown life form has started to spread in particular range. humanity has only 100 days to figure the life form out before it breaches its containment. 


Play as one of the many brave people that are sent in, with no point of return. Try to establish a signal with the outside world, survive the mystic environment, and most importantly gather samples and find out what’s going on.

AFTER THE METEOR CRASHED, THE MIST CAME

Travel to the zone where research stations have been established by other explorers. Every time a signal is lost, it’s a sign current explorer didn’t make it. A new explorer has to be sent in, in order to continue the research. The main task is to get as many alien life form samples as possible. The goal is to send it back to the outside world, any way possible, to study it and eventually find a way to protect the world against it.

MAIN PILLARS

ROGUELITE

The game is designed around death. You can choose from various characters to start with. Each one has different lifespan and different skills.
After each death you lose the character and part of the progress. But the research must go on – every restart of the game is presented with new opportunities. The time is limited. The goal is to finish the game before the life forms spreads outside the zone.

SCI-FI HORROR

Play in a dark, cold and abandoned area where an unknown alien life form is slowly spreading and corrupting everything around. Animals, researchers, villagers, nature, everything falls under the life form’s wrath. 

Try to stay sane in insanity inducing darkness and use your remaining time wisely.

RESEARCH

Every game time is limited to 100 days. It’s believed the life form will spread rapidly after this period. Look for the life form, explore the world to get more samples, build tools and fix machines in order to progress faster with your research. More research done means more explorations and more possibilities.

BIOHACKING

Everything is mutating around you, yourself included. Since you are analyzing biological sample of the alien life form, you can find ways to include it into your own DNA – with positive effects and negative ones. Unfortunately, without these mutations it is almost impossible to survive.

Can it fix your condition entirely?

our first game is ambitious…

…but we’re not delusional. We’re following an iterative production model, supported by private investment. Aiming for the best possible quality while remaining a small studio with extremely fast turnover, ready to face the challenges of indie game production.

creating and crafting our version of gaming

Enigmatic Machines s.r.o. was founded in 2014. Since then we have been relentlessly creating for clients and art installations. A new chapter was written when we decided to become an indie video game studio. Albeit being a team of 4, we pack a lot of punch! We’ve joined forces when we decided to change the way video games and creative experiences are born.

SOON ON WISHLIST

A survival sandbox where we combine harsh and deep environment with cyber-punkish soviet machines that you can build, upgrade and manage. Build sensors which can predict storms. Build gadgets that enable you to see things the human eyes can’t. Build shelters, reinforce them in order to survive the outside dangers. Place beams so you can find your way back, and craft items, like ropes, engines and masks, that can get you forward.

MAIN GOALS:

THICK ATMOSPHERE, FUN GAMEPLAY AND GREAT EXPERIENCE
