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 decided to release a demo version of our game, ‘Phantaruk’, a horror where its mood is created without jump-scares.

Last months have been a hard time for us as we have struggled to be able to show you something. Each day, after 8 hours of work (sometimes even 10 hours), we have spent our free time, trying to finish this started project and show the world our vision of a small horror game.

Couple of days ago we agreed to do a step forward and put the game on Steam Greenlight. Due to the fact that this post is about something else, I won’t flood you with statistics and shortly summarize how it goes.

Well, without any marketing or ads, it seems that you enjoy ‘Phantaruk’. Many of you compliment the atmosphere coming from shown gameplay videos. That might explain a quite good rating - in barely two days we’ve reached more than 35% to Top100.

Many of you ask if there is any demo version coming. We plan to release it this saturday (14th march) at around 6 PM CET. In demo version, you will be able to finish the first part of the game, get familiar with most mechanics and items. Biomedic section and additional enemy (it will be covered in the next post) will appear in final version of ‘Phantaruk’.

That's all. :)

My let's play -

I finally got to check out this awesome looking game! I really liked it. It's a very fun demo even though I'm kind of bad at it. It's very creepy and it feels like a constant race against the clock because you need 2 things, resources and to make progress. You'll constantly be looking for things to stay alive and it makes for a tense atmosphere.

The monster is very well done. It's not extremely tough to keep out of his way but he'll chase you and catch you if he does find you. I also really like it's design too. It's very creepy as I said. ;)

The only thing I found that was a bit annoying was how the game didn't pause when you're reading the logs. Your "Rem" still goes down when you're reading and that sort of made me feel inclined to only skim over the logs to find important door codes instead of getting immersed in the story.

Other then that one thing I think this game is great! I'm impressed and will be playing it again! I can't wait to see what you have in store next.

Thanks for recording and sharing this awesome video. We are really happy that you liked our game!

Your opinion is really important. In the next version of 'Phantaruk' one of the changes will be that Rem doesnt raise so fast when reading logs (we are thinking about implementing something like a "focus mode" - when you are in inventory, everything else will be in slow-mo).

Thanks again!

Are we going to have to pay for this game? Just wondering, because I also want to record this for YouTube when it comes out.

Demo is going to be free but the game will cost something about 3-5$. But if you are a let's player send us a message with your YT channel link to and we will give you a key for free when we release Phantaruk.
