Caffeine is a new PC horror title from local Adelaide developer Dylan Brown that takes place on an interstellar caffeine mining space station, and is inspired by the likes of F.E.A.R and Condemned. The game is utilising Epic’s latest Unreal Engine 4 and looks every bit as terrifying as it sounds.
The Year is 2097, the Earth is over-populated and is lacking resources.One of the big focuses for Caffeine is the fact that the game won’t have any weapons, instead taking a leaf from Amnesia or Dear Esther by putting you on a rather horrifying interactive ride. Brown describes Caffeine as “primarily be a Sci-Fi Horror game, but at the same time employ[ing] a strong focus on both adventure and narrative and will include some smart puzzle game play.”
The most consumed drug is caffeine and companies have countless outposts among the stars mining the resources required to quench the endless thirst of Earth’s population.
Brown has launched his game onto IndieGoGo, looking for $80,000 to bring Caffeine to life, though has also pushed the game over to Steam Greenlight. So far the project has raised just under $2,000 with 43 days left to go so pull out those wallets if you feel like giving yourself a scare. You can check out the teaser trailer below, and a demo is also available.
Currently Caffeine is looking to support Windows on launch as a 100% DRM-free version, though Brown has mentioned that Mac and Linux may see a release depending on funding. A PlayStation 4 version may also see the light of day depending on funding as well.
