Stifled is heading to Busan, Korea!
PS:VR is a thing!
Release date: Q4 2016
Stifled is a Mic-Enabled Sound-Based Survival Thriller, where sound is the only way you see and the enemies HEAR your fear.

In Stifled, the sounds made by your in-game character and yourself through *microphone input reveal the otherwise hidden world through ‘echolocation’. However, undue noise will attract the attention of creatures lurking in the darkness. To survive, you will have to tread the line between making sounds to see, and staying quiet to stay hidden. (Put the microphone near your nose for even more challenge!)

*microphone input is recommended but not necessary - can be replaced with a key input if you choose to.

Stifled[] is the spiritual successor to our award winning student project, Lurking[].

What people are saying

"I tried an early demo that convinced me that this concept has legs and doesn't feel gimmicky."
- Zack Furniss, Destructoid

"That was certainly super intense."
- Russ Frushtick, Polygon

"Gattai Games is completely changing things so that the player is forced to feel even more helpless in their environment."
- Marcus Estrada, Hardcore Gamer[]

"It’s got a right mix of the things I’d like to see in a game of its nature, so I’m inclined to believe we’ll hear nothing but good things when it releases."
- CJ Melendez, Rely On Horror[]

"For the sake of more good horror games, show Stifled some love."
- Ted Hentschke, DreadCentral[]

I would like to help the development of the game, as i have some ideas to help on the game, that might improve the game and add some more creepy aspects.

I played Lurking with 4 friends in a dark room and we each took turns at controlling. It was terrifying and intense and I plan to do the same with this!
