New UI/HUD for the game
Release date: 2018 September

The Tension is a stealth-based puzzle horror game. It's a game where the player can see the character from the top camera view and control it. The main mentality of the game taken from Alien Isolation. The current game state is Alpha. While there are still a lot to do, the main systems work perfectly.

You will be controlling a kid who is a space miner. He was looking for Iridium when he kidnaped by aliens. You will be trying to escape from their mother ship. First, you need to find your ship then fix your ship and jump back to safe space. To do that you will need to complete each level. All levels have some kind of puzzles inside. Some have enemies. You cannot shoot the enemies. The only thing you can do is to hide. Enemies can only see a limited area. If they see you there is nowhere to run and you die, in this case, you will have to repeat that level.

You can control your character with either "WASD" or arrow buttons. You can open doors with F and toggle your flashlight with T. Q and E makes you rotate the mirrors. You can press M to open the map. To move specific objects you need to press and hold Space button. There is a different kind of puzzles in the game. You will need to solve each and every one of them in order to proceed to next level. Once you complete a level you can either go to next level or you can repeat the same level to get the higher score. The score is determined by the time you spend in a level. The time stops when you pause the game or when the game is showing you tips or story of the game.

Currently, there are a few different languages for the game but it will be more in the future.

  • Different unlockable levels
  • Story based single player mode
  • Different puzzles
  • Tense environment
