Story:

628 Redwood Drive. That's... where I lived.

This was the only thing that was going through 18 year old Kyle Riverway's mind when he stepped out of the car. While he had no memories of his life before he turned 8, he had lived happily with who he thought were his parents. After trying to do a family genealogy project for a class, however, the truth shocked him down to the core: His entire life is a lie. Who were his real parents? Who was HE?

As he was trying to come to terms with this news, a single, faint memory returned to him: 628 Redwood Drive. After looking up the address, Kyle knew that this was his only lead to discover his past. That night, he stole the keys to his foster parent's car, snuck out of the house, and begun the long journey to his childhood home. He left in search of answers. What he found was a nightmare.

Now, hunted by a psychotic killer with split personalities, Kyle must find the truth and escape with his life. With every step he takes through the dark halls of his former home an invite to the killer, will he learn the truth of his former life? Or will his current life come to a swift end?


Gameplay:

Psychostasis is a story-driven survival adventure game with horror elements. You share the adventure with a split personality killer who can alternate between helpful and harmful at the drop of a hat. There are no scripted encounters with the killer, so each playthrough will carry the same amount of tension as the last.

The gameplay is built around improvising. Due to the unpredictable enemy patterns, you must make use of limited healing items to survive.

Psychostasis was brought from the concept stage to a completed game over the course of 2 months for a school project. As such, it's a rather short game (aiming for around 45 minute playtime). If you like short, story-driven adventure games, then keep an eye on this!

Check the second floor of the house. There's another place you need to use the Lion Key.
It was AWESOME, I enjoyed it a lot. But I'm not sure about how many endings does it have, can you please tell me? (Thanks)

Hey, thanks for playing! I'm so glad you liked it! And yeah, Marrend's right in that there are two endings to the game.
i mean,i love this game,you are able to find out answers in order to understand the whole situation,but the Eva chase's scenes are quite challenging because you can't predict where she is and when she's gonna run after you. above this facts,i highly recommend this,it's NOT a waste of time,you'll surely enjoy it.

Thanks for the kind words! It's great to see people still enjoying this old game.
Short horror game. Like, a mix of crooked man and ao oni, on a much smaller scale. Very good! Surprising how hard it is even to make horror rpg's.
