About

 Perturbia's teaser trailer

Clicking on the image above, you can download the beta build. This beta, even when tested and polished, represents only a small part of the game and is missing some features that will be there for the final build. The environments and story telling will be improved as well as the in-game animations, which in this beta lack detail. You can share your thoughts after playing it by sending us an email: feedback@igs.perturbia.net.

Introduction to Perturbia

Perturbia is an interactive experience evolved into a 3D video game with excellent graphic quality. It raises the bar on the level of difficulty in comparison with other first person horror games, drawing the player into a story that fits perfectly the psycho-thriller genre. As a survival horror game, it makes the player struggle against a hostile environment with few resources at hand, having to resolve logic-based puzzles.

Intended to catch attention not only from a challenging point of view but, most importantly, because of the twist of its plot, Peturbia promises a surprising ending. The story has been created and supervised by a team of expert psychologists.

Perturbia sets itself apart from the modern survival horror games by offering a higher level of difficulty, reminding us of the old-school video games in which moving to the next level wasn't easy, causing anxiety and stress. This type of 'oldie' experience is something that some of us really miss - old-school games were not only frustrating but rewarding.

It will be 100% free of DRM or any kind copy protection. You will always have access to a standalone installer of the game that doesn’t require any sort of software client or online activation. Just download, and install.

What could be hidden in the memory of a place? Nothing. Nothing...!! Nothing?

When Josh entered that old building in the middle of nowhere, he simply couldn't imagine that he was stepping into the most unsettling experience of his whole life. When the doors closed after him, he felt as if he was walking a path straight to hell... That feeling, unfortunately, wasn't far from the truth...

The elevator, that was carrying him to the fourth floor, suddenly stopped at the moment the lights turned off —everything became disturbing in a blink of an eye. He decided to forget the reason that motivated his visit to the fourth floor and began to look for an exit... an emergency door, an escape. But nothing popped up. No luck. What horrors could be awaiting him in there? Better not to know...

Unlike most modern games, Perturbia proposes a challenge more difficult to achieve but the rewards will measure up. We believe that many players are still looking forward to playing those old-school games that demanded great effort and even frustration to be beaten, but offering satisfaction in exchange. For those of you who still remember this old-school feeling as we do, here is Perturbia.

Our major inspirations for this project include horror cult classics that fans like to play and re-play once in a while:

  • Alone in the Dark
  • Silent Hill
  • The 7th Guest
  • Gabriel Knight

Do you remember being lost in the dark halls of Derceto as you play as Edward Carnby in Alone in the Dark?

… Or getting mad at the glass door puzzle in 7th Guest, trembling after hearing the voice of Herny Stauf?

… Or desperately searching your daughter across the disturbing town of Silent Hill?

Undoubtedly many of you out there might have a deep longing for those unforgettable moments...

  • English voice acting with optional Spanish, Russian and German subtitles.
  • Old-school puzzles designed to be both challenging and entertaining. We're including logic-based ones and even a Reversi game! There's also a mini game build in a FPS style, in the vein of Wolfenstein 3D.
  • Amazing graphic quality.
  • +12 hours of gameplay
  • More than 35 different rooms to explore.
  • “Open house” mode: after finishing the game, freeplay will be available with the purpose of looking for the missing in-game secrets or replaying a puzzle/mini-game.

Steam - Greenlight

We've been greenlit by the Steam community!

Last year, we run a Steam Greenlight campaign. You can check it out by clicking on the above image. They were 44 days of pure insanity, but we made it -barely alive- just when we started to lose it. It's more than satisfying to know that we have such a great community supporting us, and, of course, to know that Perturbia will be on Steam Store as soon as it's finished.

It's known that making games compatible with Oculus Rift is now a trend. Perturbia is not the exception, but the Oculus version is not our starting point. It's an extra that we'll be including for those who 'd like to enjoy a more immersible experience and can afford the VR set. No matter what you choose, the experience will be equally fantastic.

Since the retail version it's not out and the SDK is not in its final version, any changes made by the developers will have to be adapted later.

Now that you know what it's all about, you might be wondering: is there anything else to see? Of course! You can read a free intro comic, 'Perturbia: Wake-up!', which follows Josh as he arrives to the building for the first time. It's available in English, Spanish, Russian and Dutch:

"It’s a development style that turns the world of Perturbia into one of extreme danger and challenging puzzles" 

 "Pertubia combines fear and terror with old-school styled game difficulty. This game is meant to be hard. Why? Because that’s how they used to be, it used to be very difficult to get to the next level, and Perturbia wants to replicate that."

 "It's easy to see how this game will be the sort of title that fits right up the alley of fans of horror games steeped in mind-boggling puzzles."

 "With inspirations from games such as Alone in the Dark and Silent Hill, and a story created and supervised by a team of expert psychologists, Perturbia may just be what the psycho doctor ordered!"

How the funds will be invested?

As you can see, the requested money is not much compared to other projects of equal quality, this is because we've already spent part of our savings in the project. We're not looking to recover our investment with this campaign, neither  we're intending to generate revenues through it; we understand Kickstarter as a mean of acquiring funds needed to reach a successful end for an already ongoing project. We need additional money to be able to complete Perturbia in a timely fashion. We'd like to improve the game in several aspects and we believe that if we get the money, we'll be able to expand our team to made Perturbia even greater.

Your money at work:

The big question: Who's behind all this? We are IGS, a new business formed by a team of four entrepreneurs who have the necessary abilities and experience to breath life into this project. 

  • Pablo Zirilli: Game designer, specialized y graphic design and multimedia. 
  • Gonzalo Cuevas: Developer. He gives birth to Perturbia's world, laying out and programming the puzzles.
  • Marcelo Vamosi: 3D artist.  Responsible of the modeling, texturing and animation of the world around Perturbia.
  • Leandro Del Olio: Concept artist, pixel artist. 
  • Lucas RomeroLead music composer, is in charge of giving Perturbia it's unique mood.

As you can see, we are a small team but each one of us is specialized in a specific area.  Fortunately, with the success of this Kickstarter campaign, we'll be getting the extra help we need.  Since Perturbia is a big game, an extra set of hands will greatly reduce the amount of time it'll take to finish development. 

Each and every one of our backers will get an interesting reward, according to the amount pledged.  

Please take into account that each reward that offers a copy of the game will be delivering it in two different ways: a Steam Key to get it from the store and also another digital method to download it. At this point, we are in talks with Desura, GOG, and other sites. One thing is for sure: you'll get a Steam Key and we will provide you another way to download the game, either through another online store or directly from our servers. All of them DRM-Free.

See the list and choose yours at:

Be aware that our backers will have access to exclusive content through a link that will be sent as a welcome gift after you contribution is received.  At this, exclusively yours, micro-site you'll find the newest level demos,  conceptual designs, 3D models yet being developed and much more.

Of course our objective is to finish Perturbia with the best quality using the funds from the campaign. In the event that the amount received surpasses the requested, it will go to the following goals:

We aim to reach as many people as possible and then continue to generate content for our followers.

Last but not least, we'd like to hear from you. Send us your questions, comments and, why not, words of encouragement:

Risks and challenges

Although Perturbia is still a project under development, it's in advanced stages of production. Nearly 70% of the game is complete, but it's that 30% left that makes the difference between a mediocre product and a quality one. It's said that a thousand details makes the difference between something good and something awesome.

As you may already know, making a good quality video game it's a complex task, it requieres money, time, resources and a great effort.
As you can see, we are a small team working with passion, but delays may occur, since we don't have any backups for the positions we occupy. When we set the aproximate release date, we took into account any possible issues that anyone on the team may face, but we are not free from anything to happen.

One thing is for sure: Perturbia is coming out one way or another, it's your contribution that will make the real difference in matter of time and quality. Reaching our main goal will let us work with less pressure, dedicate more time to the project (even more!), hire new proffessionals to fullfill some tricky tasks to increase the quality of the current state, as much as to increase the speed of the development.

We want things to be as clear as possible for all the bakers, so we guarantee that at any step we take, or decision we make, we will be informing you in order to know what you think or feel about it; we are commited to everyone of you that believes that this will be an awesome game.
