The Treatment Is DEADLY Effective In Our Newest Trailer and Steam Community!

Hi. Sometimes videos are better than words. And sometimes a shockingly disturbing video of blasphemous evil is even better:

As you can see, we mean business. Horror being our gruesome, nasty business.

Hard to believe it’s been one month since my previous update! So much has happened in January that I’ve lost track of time and space. ASYLUM is progressing eerily fast and surpassing our wildest expectations. It seems we’ll be able to keep our promise of delivering a lengthy and polished demo to you, our trusty backers, after GDC in April. In fact, we’re already testing an internal build with the first puzzles in the game and it’s looking real good!

That is all for today, but I hope you enjoyed the news. Be sure to check out the fresh new screenshots on Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/230210

And a few more goodies I left in the community hub: http://steamcommunity.com/games/asylum

Until next time!

      Cool vid. Although I must admit that I had completely forgotten that I had backed this project... I'm still excited, and I am glad that it has a "presence" now on Steam, which should make it more "real" that it has been for the last couple of years. Hope for a steady progress and a successful release!

      I'm happy to report our community launch on Steam has been very successful in just a few days with many activity and fan discussions. We're going to keep renewing hype, releasing more news and materials, and we're already working with GOG to launch a 'coming soon' page there as well :)

      @David, it's supposed to say "your sanity has an expiry date", but admittedly that segment can be a bit hard to understand with the background music.

      Nice. But it should be "your sanity has an expiration date," not "your sanity has an expire date."

      Shocking!
      From the gameplay video out there it's easy to use, and I get Penumbra levels of immersion.
      You're definitely on the right track!

      So gross, but yet, so wonderful. :D

      @Martin, I've given an exact date for the demo and provided a schedule in our December update. We're currently three people working on this game.

      @Conrad, thank you, we're getting a lot of such comments about old movies, but it's the first time I heard "It's Alive". Loved that film :)

      @Frodo, so happy you liked the video! The game *will* make it to GOG as we have an agreement with them. All backers will have access to both Steam and GOG versions.

      @land, we're honestly in love with the logo ourselves, and many people seem to really like it as well. It was a good decision to update it :)

      Estimated delivery December 2013. It is now 2018 and we maybe see demo in fex months after few engine switches..... It is pathetic. Please could you answer me one simple question? How many people works on this project full time?

      Liking the 80's vibe ala "It's Alive!".
