Do you remember the survival horror genre in 90s? The atmosphere? The fear? Last summer i’ve started working on my first game and now i want to share with you this experience.

The final game costs will be similar to other games on Desura and Steam.
I'm selling this alpha build, at 2.99$, because i need fund...

I am very much looking forward to your amazing looking game. I have been a core gamer for just over 25 years and I've played all of the best games and even not so great games that have come along. And I must say you are creating a game that has me quite excited. I will support your efforts in any ways I can. My one question is what is the system reqs on Mac? Thanks.

Hi, thank you for the support. :)
I've tested the game on MacBook Pro (mid 2009): 2.26GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 4 GB Ram, GPU: Radeon 9600. It looks perfect (60 fps).
I've also tested the game on Windows with 2 GB Ram and Single Core 2.2 Ghz, GPU: Ati X1950 pro. The game runs at 30-50fps.
So, if you have a PC or Macbook with this specs, the game will works great. If you have only 1 GB Ram or GPU older than AtiX1950 pro, could be some difficults.

Yeah. I have a mid 2010 Mac mini with a Core 2 Duo 2.4ghz processor 2gigs ram and Nvidia 320m gpu. I will be putting 8gigs of ram very soon. And I am trying to save up for a gaming rig. Needlessly to say, I do the majority of my gaming on consoles,Ps3,360,WiiU,Wii,Vita,3ds and OnLive micro console. Got my Ps4 pre ordered. You should really look into getting your game onto Ps4. The way they are courting Indies and making it super easy to get on the platform with self publishing, no cost updating,free dev kits etc.......

Yeah, your mid 2010 Mac mini probably will run the game with no difficults. 8gigs sounds good. :D I've played games on PS3, 360, Wii, Wii U (only ZombieU pre-release version) PSP and 3ds. PS4 looks great for indie, but before that, i hope to find a softwarehouse or developers (with experience in the industry) that could be interesting to support my project (but it's not easy!). Make a 3D game, with no funds and completely alone, it's really hard... :D

Oh yeah. Its very difficult. It just makes me sick seeing all of these Smart phone game devs getting rich or close to it with such simplistic and lackluster games. Then they have devs like yourself that have to struggle so damn hard to get noticed. I have a certain dislike for phone "gaming". Not real gaming. For me its ruining the industry, that we hold dear.

Well, lucky for us there are still AMAZING large named brands, there's GTA, there's Battlefield, there's CoD (I hate CoD, everyone else is too good and i suck .-., Mw3 survival was good and so was Black Ops/Black Ops II Zombies/Combat training) and there's Watch Dogs. Hell, GTA5 counts as about 7 ******* games, it has so much things in it :D Also, not to kind of spam but, the game looks great, my old 2008 comuputer probably can't run it though :(

Yeah, i don't like so much that kind of games, but this is a new market and makes happy so many gamers (and devs). I just would like try to find a good mix, with the past and our time. Maybe a "small" game, but with a great atmosphere in a strange dark world. I would like insert more things in the future, but like i said, it's hard. I just hope that people loves "my vision", looking for a new evolution from 90's survival horror.
Obviously, if someone will tell me something about gameplay or similar things, i'll be happy to listen their advices. ;)

Too many half baked games touting to be version >1.0 that don't even start up can be found on IndieDB. It is really nice to find an very early alpha which is stable and runs very well.
Keep in mind the game is still very early in dev. Still the atmosphere is great; very tense. The controls are like a 90s survival horror, which I like but some people may not.
I really like this game and looking forward to seeing it grow.
