Erie drops you into a visually stunning, yet terrifying scenario where your goals are to investigate, survive, and finally escape. It’s first person horror meets intense dark-ride with hidden, rotting cats. Erie begins in October 1966, when the Fermi 1 Nuclear Power Generator suffers a partial meltdown, and locals begin disappearing from a sleepy Michigan town. Oliver Victor is a Red Cross Investigator sent to find missing locals, but quickly finds himself trapped underground and being hunted by a product of forced-mutation experiments. Oliver’s rescue mission quickly turns into a struggle to survive, escape and uncover what’s been happening under the nuclear plant on the shores of Lake Erie. Developed by the University of Utah's EAE Master Games Studio Program.

We are in talks about finishing a completely new experience. The team and I believe that games shouldn't break a persons bank account nor should the price for a game deter a player playing the game. If we do charge, it will be as cheap as possible.

I also want to give my feedback on what I've thought about it from when I've played it so far.

The game is really good, the visuals are awesome. The animation is nice (apart from the death scene, which is hard to take seriously I have to say) the story makes sense in a way, you have to investigate a Nuclear Powerplant and why locals are going missing.

Although, I don't understand why we got to pick up cats.

Sorry if im being a critic, its what I think so far. ;)

I'm enjoying you're game! It looks awesome considering its free!

Haha, yes we understand the animation is a bit funny. We are working on fixing all of the kinks with the game. This was basically a really pretty prototype. A verticle slice of the full game we want to make. We are in discussion to build a complete experience soon.

haha the cats were suppose to be a Easter Egg that I put in the levels. When we first did play testing, the people that found that cats loved the idea so much that I decided to hide a few more in the game. Honestly, it wasn't suppose to make sense.

Is there anyway to change graphical settings via ini's?

I can do that with Dishonored, runs on the same Unreal engine.

The game runs smooth most of the time but lags when areas have a nice looking lighting effect (I think they are a god rays/sun rays effect?)

Please tell me, the game looks awesome to play.

i was abel to change it using an ini file, go to erie/engine/config/baseengine.ini and find [SYSTEMSETTINGS] change what you want however i reccomend only changing the resolution to 800x600 because it makes higher FPS without ruining the beauty/creepiness of the lighting

ERIE is one of those games where you just can't believe a game that looks this good is for free!
