Phobolis - Alpha Test
A downloadable game
Inevitably, all lost find a path to the woods.
They run. They all run.
Pain, pride, dignity, devotion, they run.
Until it all runs out.
Inevitably, all lost find a path in to the woods
There are new eyes behind you now.
Phobolis is a surreal horror adventure taking place within the Phobolis: A purgatory superstructure hidden in deep woods for all who have lost themselves. You play as Moment, a mysterious character that has, by merit of your participation, made the choice* to enter its gates in an effort to reach the top and be free.
There is no death in Phobolis. Each time a person dies, a new manifestation of them is formed at the last gate. However, the bodies left behind return to life as twisted mockeries. Screaming frenzied primal shards of self that others have left behind. Be wary of your self as much as your foes.
Our intent with this project is to take the FPS genre and explore new spaces between arcade action, slow burning dread, and ambiguous situations that leave the audience with a different set of questions than they had at the start.
A NOTE: This is a very early test. Many features, items and enemies are incomplete and everything is still subject to change. Crashes/soft-locks shouldn't be common but you might run into the occasional glitch. We'd love to hear your feedback in order to make this as good as possible.
