Considering how many of us begin our daily lives with a cup of coffee, I can see this world becoming our future… whether or not that future will be filled with such horror. We’ll just have to wait and see, However I’m eagerly awaiting the release of Caffeine, this is definitely a game I can immerse myself in and get lost.
Caffeine is a quirky first person psychological horror adventure game with environmental puzzles.
Set in the near future, the entire population of Earth is vigorously addicted to coffee. Massive space stations built by the biggest corporations roam the stars mining minerals to create a synthetic caffeine to quench the never ending thirst of the human race.
You awaken aboard one of these caffeine mining stations, alone. Before long you realize that you are a young boy with no memory of what has transpired on this seemingly empty space station.
Naturally you set out to explore the depths of the huge structure to figure out what exactly is going on.
Caffeine is currently in development utilizing the power of Unreal Engine 4, which allows for very high visual fidelity while maintaining a great amount of flexibility in terms of performance.
At its core Caffeine is an exploratory first-person puzzle game with a strong focus on psychological horror and lore.
Caffeine has three main gameplay elements:
Horror – You are alone in a mysteriously empty space station. Who knows what’s out there!Lore – Sticky notes, audio logs, whiteboards etc. This place feels lived in with each character having a rich back-story that can be deciphered from just walking into an office or quarters.Puzzles – interesting environmental and memory based puzzles.
Windows, Linux & Mac Support
Console Releases – Coming to two major consoles in late 2015.
Oculus Rift & Steam VR Supported – Allowing for ultimate immersion & interaction with the world of Caffeine.
UHD support – Support for a wide range of resolutions including 4K, 8K with the additions of alternative aspect ratios like 21:9.
When Will The Game Be Out?
Caffeine will be first launching on PC (Windows, Mac & Linux) in three episodes beginning in mid 2015 with console releases to follow.
