About


"You wake up in a dark room without any idea why you are there.

All you can do is open the door and continue into the dark. What dangers lurk? What obstacles do you face? Find your way and see if you find a solution to why you are here."

This is kind of a one man project, since I have not hired anyone to help me out. That means I need to buy some services from other people now and then (i.e buying sound effects, needed props and so on).

The video shows the first minute of the game, but it is of course a good chance that it will change during development. One thing is for sure, it's going to be dark and it's going to give you a scare now and then.

At the moment, it is possible to buy the game at itch.io and get access to the early alpha version, but that will not give you the cool advantages of supporting me through kickstarter!


The game is under construction, and in a VERY EARLY stage. If you buy the game at itch.io and support the development in alpha stage, you will of course get all the patches and the full game when it's finished, but as mentioned above: Kickstarter funding will help improve the game, and you will get your name in it.

DISCLAIMER: Expect the alpha version of the game to be buggy, AND pr 21.5.2019 the content is more a proof on consept than a game, but content will be added on a daily / weekly basis.


From devlog:

"I decided to release the game for the public in a very early alpha stage.

One of the reason for this is that some people (like me) like to see the changes done to a game during development. You can experience parts of the game that might be left out when the full release is out, and you might also influence me to add/remove content. (Which will result in a thank you in the credits of course)."


- Every backer will get access to the alpha as soon as the campaign ends.

- Steam is also an option for Bronze Founders even though it isn't mentioned in the reward.

- Expect changes on this page, so come back often to see more images from the game.


Future platform plans

- Xbox One

- Mobile (Android / IOS)

Here is a video of SOME of the monsters you can expect to meet during your adventures in Portals of Dread:

I have now set up a Discord server where you can find the latest and greatest information about the game.  (My discord skills are not the strongest, so bear with me in the beginning).

Risks and challenges

Scope Creep is the biggest risk at the moment. But due to frequent alpha / beta releases, this will only make more content for the backers.
I have a full time job, so the time frame for 6 months MIGHT be a little optimistic.
