Hi guys, my name is Tadej and I'm making an indie survival horror game! Here's a couple of information for you. If you like the game, please support us on our fundraiser - if you are poor like us, do share the trailer and indiegogo link with everyone you know, it helps us a lot!

TRAILER LINK

Uncanny Valley is a survival horror game, focusing on a bone chilling story, exploration and heart pounding action.

About the game:
Uncanny Valley is a survival horror game that includes a mix of exploring, discovering the story, solving puzzles and a bit of action. We're trying to preserve the old survival horror kind of gameplay instead of following the modern trend of creating a third person shooter with horror elements.



Story:
You play as a security guard named Tom at a remote facility. He's in charge of the night shift, while his lazy partner Buck is in charge of the day shift. Nights are long, so Tom starts exploring the facility and finds things he shouldn't. The story plays a huge part in the game, so saying anything more would be a major spoiler.



Consequence system:
Uncanny Valley's main difference from other games is a thing we like to call the consequence system. Whenever you fail at something, the game goes on, but with harsh consequences for your character that can impact both the story and the gameplay.

For example - you fail at avoiding your attackers, meaning your character will move slower throughout the game, making it harder to escape future pursuers, so the player needs to be careful and more clever, which adds more tension to the game. Of course, there are a couple of sections where you can die, but we're trying to avoid that as much as possible.

Why? Because dying and repeating the same section over and over is tedious and leads to frustration. The game stops being scary if you're angry and just want to rush through it, so we think that adding such a system will still keep the tension while adding a new layer to scariness.



Key Features:
- a huge, explorable facility with multiple floors and buildings
- intense moments of dread
- detailed story with rich characters
- consequence system mechanic

I declare this thread UNLOCKED!

Fuck you, MattAY.

This game looks sweet. I'll check out your IndieGoGo later when I'm home. Is it going to be linear, level-based, Metroidvania or what?

Well, thank you used44.

It's going to be open, you can freely explore the whole facility, except some sections are locked. So it more similar to metroidvania, but you get keycards, codes, keys, etc., instead of powers.

Thanks for checking out our indiegogo!

This game does look pretty sweet. Kinda reminds me of Flashback for Sega.

Can you resize your images to make them a bit smaller?

Haha sorry tadejvig! There are policies here that state no advertising whatsoever.

However, brainstorming in CO bought to our attention that some of these games are actually good - including yours!
So now were going to let some of these through.

No hard feelings Wink

It does!

It reminds me of RPGmaker games like Witch's House and Ib.
I like the idea of not dieing, but rather being punished for getting hit in other ways.

It's a very loose connection, but I was stuck on Silent Hill: Homecoming for a while because the action dificulty was too hard! It did get very frustrating, and it ruined the game for me to be honest. So this is a nice method of getting around that sort of thing happening.

Hm... wow, this does look impressive. I quite like the soundtrack and the general presentation. It reminds me very much of Out of this World as well as Flashback, both games which I really enjoyed.

Good luck with this project of yours, tadejvig, it looks very promising!

The vignetting on the edges is a really cool effect.

Some updates guys and girls:

The game can now be pre-ordered on Humbe Store! Here's a link: HUMBLE STORE

Oh and we were featured on Yoyogames first page: https://www.yoyogames.com/showcase/101


We just released a new trailer for Uncanny Valley! It's Halloween, so it's only appropriate for a horror game to receive a trailer.

Youtube Link

The trailer features an arcade machine called Anarchy Man, where you can spend quarters in order to play a couple rounds of the game to relieve your stress. Yes, it's a game inside of a game! Uncanny Valley is a carefully made product with attention to detail, so we wanted to give something extra for those who like to explore.

We also released a couple of new screenshots, take a look:





If you haven't yet, you can still try the demo by heading on our official site: http://cowardlycreations.com/uncannyvalley.html

If you want to give us some criticism or praise, please post below or send us a mail to contact@cowardlycreations.com

Oh and, it's best if you follow us at our social channels such as Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter or IndieDB (find the links at our official website) to get updates when they come out or little insights into the development.
