the machine that BREATHES is a 2D Survival Horror game with a focus on situational combat and exploration. Inspired by the likes of Resident Evil and System Shock, you'll crawl through a hostile environment and manage a limited inventory to brace against the unknown.

You are digging deep underground. Your task is to scan for seismic activity and send it back to the above. Unexpectedly, your contact with the surface cuts out and you are left digging for eternity. Eventually things go dark and you're running out of power... is this where it ends? Suddenly you awaken in a strange new body, as you must have been recovered somehow. Strange thing is, the entire facility you're in is vacant, and you're definitely not on the surface.

  • Explore a strange and mechanical place deep underground.
  • Every shot counts, spend your resources wisely as everything you use is gone forever.
  • What lurks in the darkness may destroy you, sometimes the best choice is to run.
  • Multiple ways to navigate the world leading to different upgrades and capability.
  • Discover and collect artifacts that reveal more about the obscured history.

Heading into 2023

Hey so it's pretty obvious that the game is not coming out in 2022, sorry about that. I work full time at a mobile game studio and the machine that BREATHES is essentially done in my spare time. However I have been making slow but steady progress and have decided to bring on help to address the amount of coding that still needs to be done. I am just one person so I think it'll help realign for me to explain to someone else what actually needs to get done and who should work on what. I'll have this person available for a few months, so my goal is to use this as motivation to push through and get the game over the finish line.

This update is really just passing the "Yes I'm still alive and working on this project" check. As for when the game will be done, the official word is SOON. I just don't know yet and don't want to over promise and under deliver. I've seen a lot of games lately that get rushed to hit a release date, and I just don't want it to be that. No shade to anyone that has to hit a deadline for whatever reason, but I want this game to feel like a well-rounded experience and not "Oh that's it?" So if things change or circumstances come up just know that I'm trying to ensure that it isn't just kicked out the door. That said I should probably temper expectations by saying it's looking like a 5 hour experience. Some potential replay-ability, but that will likely be added after launch.

Stay breathing!
