    ATMOSPHERE:

    The game will have a very serious and dark atmosphere to it.


    STORY:

    You and your girlfriend go to visit your father and your other relatives who live in a massive mansion in a semi-remote area of the Alaskan coastline. You discover that no one is home and you enter inside only to be chased by the slasher into a room. You are trapped inside the mansion and must survive and find out what happened to your family.

    In the game you will be able to craft items and you will need to eat and sleep to stay alive. You will be able to barricade yourself in any room you choose in the mansion, each room has its own perks such as item storage, amenities etc.

    Day and night cycle

    I dont believe a day and night cycle needs much explaining, i'ts pretty obvious what it does :)

    Physics Furniture

    What you see in the photo is placeholder furniture made into physics assets. The furniture is movable so the player can use them to block doorways to slow down and prevent demons from entering their base.

    Simple AI

    We have a very simple AI at the moment. It randomly wanders around and gives chase to the player when it spots them.

    Stamina and Inventory System

    The stamina and inventory system have been implemented as well, however there is a slight hiccup with the inventory system, the jigsaw grid does not show up when the stamina system is activated.
