About

You are awoken in your prison cell by blood-curdling screams. You gotta get out of here. As if breaking out of prison wasn't hard enough, a vicious monster stalks you from the shadows. In order to survive you must use your intelligence, resourcefulness and just the right amount of violence!

In 2006 Eduardo Mojica and Richard Rout created 'Arrival in Hell'. The game was renowned for its cheesy dialogue and excessive gore combined with it's classic 'escape the room' point-and-click adventure gameplay.

Today we're asking old fans and newcomers alike to help us bring Arrival in Hell back!

Update - We're Greenlit!

A huge thanks to everyone for voting. Arrival in Hell will one day appear on Steam; the world's largest PC game distribution platform.

Update - Collector's edition prototypes

Check out these awesome prototypes for the Collector's edition. They came out really well.

Plenty of documents to collect, items to find and combinations to try.

 Make moral decisions which affect the story and outcome of the game.

 Complete quests for other inmates to aid in your escape.

 Explore exciting new locations exclusive to the remake.

 

The game will be available on Windows and Mac. Since we're using the Unity engine, adding a Linux version is possible if there is enough interest. Let us know in the comments if that's something you want to see!

You play as an unnamed inmate serving out an indeterminate sentence. Although his past is shrouded in mystery, it's clear our protagonist is as cunning as he is tough.

Jimbo is something of an entrepreneur, currently doing time for his involvement in the organisation of illegal street fights. As the prison's resident smuggler, he can get you anything... for the right price.

Chuppo has been in and out of prison all his life. He is now serving life without parole for murder, although he claims "Daddy made him do it".

 

 

 

I'm Matt, co-founder of Rustyarcade.com, the sponsor of the original game. I have been programming professionally for the last 10 years.

I started out making casual games and ended up specializing in the gambling sector.

I've always wanted to create a full-scale game, so I started my own game development company, Epic Industries, in 2014 in order to pursue this dream.

Alex has been a professional 3D designer for around 7 years, working on everything from architectural renders to casino and slot games, before founding Playmex Studios in 2015. 

A keen gamer since an early age, Alex has joined forces with Matt to recreate this epic game.

Alex is the lead creative on the Arrival in Hell remake, creating a whole new look and feel, while maintaining some of the key style aspects of the original.

Arrival in Hell has always been one of my favorite Flash games, and I love point and click adventures. A few years back Alex and I began working with Unity, and decided we wanted to make a game with it. Alex is a total horror game buff, so we quickly settled on remaking Arrival in Hell (with permission). The idea was to use the existing game as a template so we could focus on learning Unity, however we soon realized it wasn't going to be a simple port, but an entirely new game! Just to clarify, we have the full rights to make this granted to us by Eduardo and Rich, the original creators.

 

So far we have an almost-complete engine, a few rooms in various stages of completion and the entirety of the story planned out. The bulk of the remaining work is the design (3D modelling), mini-games, and cut-scenes.

We have spent as many weekends, evenings and holidays as possible on the game but it's taken us two years to get to where we are. In order to finish this off, we need your help to allow us to dedicate consistent full-time effort to the game.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Currently we work full time to support ourselves. We'd like to work on this full time instead, therefore all of the money we raise will pay the bills so we can focus on making this the best game possible.

After Kickstarter fees and taxes are subtracted, we will have enough to sustain ourselves for a release in Q1 2017.

We've broken down the remaining work into sections, which should give you an idea of how much of the budget we'll be allocating to each remaining task.

Risks and challenges

Our main risk, as with all video games, is the potential for delays. We have lots of experience making accurate delivery estimates, so we are confident we will deliver on time. To help ensure this we are being realistic with our timeline and allowing ourselves some wiggle room within our estimates.

Another risk area is our Steam Greenlight campaign; it could either be delayed or fail altogether. In this case the game will still be finished, it just won't be available via Steam. You can help us mitigate this possibility by voting for us!
