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.

Calling for testers

Have you suddenly found yourself with lots of spare time? You know, due to recent events? Or maybe you're just a nerd like me who is indoors most of the time anyway.

I'm here to ask for testers. The game is currently playable up to the half point, with the later half being rushed to completion as I speak. I'm mainly looking for bug fixes and seeing any gaps the tutorials might have. The demo has an estimate playtime of 2 hours, though the point of this play-test is to also check how long the average new player would take as a casual dev speedrun takes me less than an hour.

The game is a horror game for those who haven't been following. It isn't made in RPGMaker but it does mimic the top down view and controls associated with the engine. So it should be pretty standard fare for most games on the site, sans it not being an RPG. The filesize so far is 70MB zipped.

It being a commercial game made on zero budget, the only compensation I can offer is a free copy of the game via Steam or Itch. Credit also. There will be a discord group and a google doc to manage bug reports and feedback. I'll probably only take a minimum people (10ish) at first since I haven't done testing aside from close friends but feel free to PM me or comment below if you're interested then I'll PM you a private discord server link to join.

Meant to say after accepting this but it looks cool as hell. Seriously.
