About

Repenthium is a first-person physics based survival horror adventure which puts you in the shoes of Andrew as he struggles to apprehend the psychological quandaries he witnesses throughout his experiences.

When Andrew agrees to follow through with a brain procedure that removes all negative emotions from his mind using a device called the Repenthium, he is unaware of what he has gotten himself into. Guided by the voice of his doctor, Andrew must overcome each negative emotion within the procedure itself. In a struggle to overcome his emotions, learn who he can trust, and figure out the truth behind his trials, Andrew goes deeper into his mind to complete the Repenthium procedure.

 HD Gameplay Trailer Below

 
  • Unique environments each with stories of their own
  • A story driven psychological horror experience
  • Encounter, run, and hide from horrifying enemies along the way
  • Physics-based puzzles to solve
  • Destructible objects and environments
  • And much more!

In order to survive the numerous harsh environments in Andrew's mind, you need to be resourceful in using your surroundings. Physics - based game play means you will encounter puzzles that require 'out of the box' thinking different from other game's puzzles. Additionally, the environments you explore will contain destructible elements for a more interactive experience.

You will be faced with many enemies along the way which you must evade by any means necessary, whether it be by running away, hiding behind something and/or using physics to your advantage. With psychological horror being a strong theme throughout the game, narrative and cinematic sequences will have you on your toes and asking yourself what is real and what is just a figment of your imagination.

The companys' current goal right now is to achieve the funding goal of Repenthium, which is $5,000 dollars.  Once the goal has been achieved, development of Repenthium can continue and all costs incurred along the way will be covered.

Once the funding goal has been reached the game will be all set for its further development and release on PC, Mac, and Linux for Steam and DRM Free in 2016.

Risks and challenges

When it comes to fulfillment, Repenthium has one primary obstacle that causes some setbacks.

The use of the Unity 5 Game Engine is the primary setback in this case as it is a very young engine having upgraded from its previous version, Unity 4, only a couple of months ago. As a result, certain aspects of Repenthium may take longer to develop, and incorporating Unity 5's new features into the game can be somewhat tedious. Nonetheless, this setback is minor and won't sidetrack the game from being completed to the quality level the company envisions for it.
