«During the summer vacation, a maintenance technician is hired by the Pandora School of Engineering and Technology to repair and calibrate the equipment that was damaged. However, after making a mistake and making the light go down, strange events begin to happen in the deserted school. Now, the technician's goal is to discover the cause of the apparent haunt and stop it before it gets in danger.»

This is a survival game made for a game design school project that took 1 month and a half (so there might be bugs!).  By completing different tasks and exploring the school, you will learn more about the origin of the strange events that haunt you, with the help of different papers scattered around the  school.

With two possible endings, play through the whole story in around 30-45 minutes.

Warning: Small flashing lights

Going back through some old content, this was good! 

Full Play No Commentary 



There was some technical issues...for example the File Room Box...I had to exit the game and restarted it again...It was an ok game...

(+1)(-1)

The game looks high-quality, it suffers in optimization(Lags heavily)...

This game is great and i already record it for my youtube channel


Hii, thank you so much for playing and making a video about our game ^^ we really apreciate it . We hope you liked it despite any problem !!! c:

Im now just downloading this and by the looks of it, it looks really fun! Also might plan on making a Youtube video on it if you dont mind :)

Hii! ^^ Aw we hope you like it! And of course you can, we really aprecciate it!! Thank you so much 

The game was very well designed, and the style and gameplay was 10/10. One thing I do have to mention though… it wasn’t scary. The jump scares were sometimes hard to notice, and the sound used for such scares was pretty basic (I’ve used it in one of my own creations as well). A chase scene or something else would’ve been great, especially cause the atmosphere was near perfection. Great experience, I just would’ve preferred it to be a bit more scary :)

Best of luck, TBit

Hi!! ^^ Thank you so much for playing our game, we really aprecciate it and we are happy to receive feedback!! We totally agree with the scary part, our goal was to make the scary part more focused on the enviroment to give an unsetling vibe, but we want to probably make a game more focused on the aspects you mentioned in the future!! So thank you so much for your feedback c: 

In response to the chase scene what ending did you had? ^^

This was such a great experience! The core gameplay loop of fixing the computers almost felt like mini games. The game does a great job of building up tension in the latter half. And the enemy is so well designed! Great work!

Hi!! ^^ Thank you so much for playing and making a video about our game! We really aprecciate it, thank you so much for the feedback and we're glad you liked the enemy design!!!, we hope you liked it c: thank you very much again

I was really impressed with your game. I love the intro! I just ran into an issue with not knowing what to do at the end (until I looked at my phone, doh!). Great game!

So far from what ive seen it is really good the problem i have is when i pick up objects such as the paper it wont let me put it down.

Hi there ^^ Someone else have encounter this bug and our programmers are looking into it and try to fix the paper bug, they said it's possible to close it if you click on the upper half of the button too! Hope you're liking it and be able to finish it! Thank you for your feedback and for playing c:

For a project this game is made quite well, the only issues I see regarding the game is the over all environment and sound cues. Most especially on the chase scene and the sounds of the monster itself.. but all in all a very impressive and scary game.. Great work, keep it up!!

Hi ^^ Thank you so much for playing and making a video! We really aprecciate your feedback and will take a look at the sound problem c:

Eu gostei! :D

Abertura top demais

Aquele robozinho que fica travando a gente no chão foi chatinho mas legal :D

Gravei uma gameplay sem saber que era jogo brasileiro kkkk

O único ponto a melhorar é o final do jogo que foi meio súbito (vi que ainda estão fazendo só agora)

Oi! Na verdade é português, mas eu (Lucas) sou BR então acho que conta kkkk. Valeu por gostar do que jogou. Manda o link do vídeo ai pra vermos :)

Vou jogar de novo agora que tem final :D

Game Worked this time!! And it was great! Loved the atmosphere and everything looked and felt awesomely grungy and gritty which really added to the style. I am still very confused as to what actually happened at the end though. It seemed to cut to credits very abruptly. Fantastic experience otherwise and I really loved the death roombas even though I thought they were going to be friendly... Haha

Hi! Thank you so much for playing our game and making a video about it :), we're glad that you liked it. Unfortunately the ending is still a work in progress that we expect to update soon!!! thanks for going easy on us ^^

I look forward to seeing it! I need to know what happened to Phil! 😂😂

(+1)

Hi! Guess what, we finished the game! The endings are solid as rock now, and there are more improvements. Pleas try it anytime you can :)

I'll check it out after work today! Hope Phil's ok!

(+2)

The intro video looks really nice. But it crashes as soon as it attempts to load the level. Would love to do a play through of this if you manage to fix it!!

(+2)

Hey! I uploaded a fixed version that won't crash. But if the problem persist, please don't hesitate to comment again :)

Awesome! I'll check it out later today! Keen!
