Uncanny Valley is now finally available on Steam!
Launch trailer and final release date announcement!
Release date: Late 2014/Early 2015
Uncanny Valley is a survival horror game, focusing on a bone chilling story, exploration and heart pounding action.

You can now find the game on Steam!!!!

About the game:
Uncanny Valley is a survival horror game that includes a mix of exploring, discovering the story, solving puzzles and a bit of action. We're trying to preserve the old survival horror kind of gameplay instead of following the modern trend of creating a third person shooter with horror elements.

You play as a security guard named Tom at a remote facility. He's in charge of the night shift, while his lazy partner Buck is in charge of the day shift. Nights are long, so Tom starts exploring the facility and finds things he shouldn't. The story plays a huge part in the game, so saying anything more would be a major spoiler.

Consequence system:
Uncanny Valley's main difference from other games is a thing we like to call the consequence system. Whenever you fail at something, the game goes on, but with harsh consequences for your character that can impact both the story and the gameplay.

For example - you fail at avoiding your attackers, meaning your character will move slower throughout the game, making it harder to escape future pursuers, so the player needs to be careful and more clever, which adds more tension to the game. Of course, there are a couple of sections where you can die, but we're trying to avoid that as much as possible.

Why? Because dying and repeating the same section over and over is tedious and leads to frustration. The game stops being scary if you're angry and just want to rush through it, so we think that adding such a system will still keep the tension while adding a new layer to scariness.

Key Features:
  • a huge, explorable facility with multiple floors and buildings
  • intense moments of dread
  • detailed story with rich characters
  • consequence system mechanic

I'm excited for this game to be released; it even made me interested in Game Maker again. I saw Markiplier play it and now I can't wait to see how the story will be developed.

Michael - yes, there are puzzles in the game and yes, you can fight back against enemies. The main game also isn't as disjointed.

Just saw this game (or the Demo) played by Markiplier as well, and I thought it looked really good.
Maybe a bit random, but at least it's quite unique. I mean, it reminds me of a few other games, such as the older Oddworld games, and the more recent side-scrolling adventure/horror-games that are out there, but it seems to have its own original stuff to it.

I just hope there will be a bit deeper gameplay, such as some puzzles and maybe a chance to get into combat or at least something tactical with the items you can find. Like defend yourself from those robot-creepers when they attack, or disable them, distract them, and so on.
Unless it's just meant to play out as more of a story, I can understand.

Anyway, I'm still curious to see what the rest of the game is like.
