You wake up on an abandoned spaceship. Shortly after, a text-log, left by doctor Heartman, catches your eye. Its content speeds up your pulse. You don’t believe what you see while your heart is thumping abnormally in your chest. Calming down, keeping your mind under control and collecting your thoughts is what you need right now. You think you hear footsteps; suspicion that the doctor is lying about everything would cross your mind if it wasn’t for a sudden, inhuman scream.

Phantaruk is a small survival horror video game. You will stand against an evil in its material form. You have to avoid the monster which traverses abandoned “Colonial-02” corridors and leave the spaceship alive.

The objective would be much easier if it wasn’t for the fact that you had been infected by a mutagenic virus and were a test subject for a vaccine. What does the virus do to a living tissue? This is what you have to experience on your own skin.

We are excited to show you gameplay video of the Phantaruk for the first time! In the video you can see the first moments of the game (without cutscenes). We made it look like a speed-run but it will take you longer to finish the first objective. There are many things that we have to improve but we are slowly getting to the end of the development process.

And when we talk about objectives, I have to say something about leading the players. As level designer, I wanted to make them feel lost in the spaceship. There will be situations when you have specific task to do or items to find, described in text-logs (e.g. an engineer mentioned broken door and using relay station under hall C4) but the route to get to the target won’t be 100% clear and obvious. Although during these moments you will be led by level design, there still will be room for running around.

That’s all for now. Please leave us your feedback – it is very useful for us.

PS: We consider launching open beta (of first 10-20 minutes of the game) but we are’t sure. Would you like to try it?

  • Changed Player sounds,
  • Changed Phantaruk sounds,
  • Changed Adrenaline and Propranolol sounds,
  • Changed player crouching speed (faster),
  • Changed Phantaruk placeholder for final model,

Why do you think that? :) Phantaruk is smaller game, with some unique and specific mechanics (like for e.g: health system, which really is a heartbeat of the player). I really want to know your opinion.

The atmosphere looks similar and has a darker look to it.. Also, that thing walking in the hall on the screenshot, reminds me of the Brute from Monstrum
