This was very good, but way too short! I wanted to see more! I really hope this gets expanded into a longer game with a deeper look at the story behind this place!
A downloadable game for Windows
The simulation has become corrupted.
We can't reset it from outside without endangering the whole project, so we have to send you down there.
Replace the catalysts and restart the simulation.
Beware of the Anomaly.

Thanks for the fun :D
Noiseminded, my friend, you nailed a terrifying atmosphere in a minimalist environment! I had a sense of dread throughout my playthrough, especially after I encountered the Anomaly.
My only request would be to indicate what the objective is at the beginning of the game (I wandered aimlessly for a bit lol), but the rest of what you have here is done quite well. Best of luck in the rest of the development; I'd love to see a second part (and more).
A corrupt take on horror, literally. I like how the only way to see what the anomaly/anomalies look like is to turn around and see for yourself, no death animation directly showing it consuming you or anything.
That sound... My god did it give me the shivers!!
OH MY FKING GOD I kept my volume at 100 cuz i couldn't hear anything and then i some creature popped up with that Loud ass HOOOOOOOOOOOOOO and I freaked out big time
The fact the game crashes when you lose scuffed my recording of the game and me beating it, but I'll just make a review video w/o gameplay.
i'm getting some TERRIBLE frame drops! if i run it normally, it starts with a framerate around 30 and gradually lowers. degrading the resolution to 1366x768 allowed the framerate to stay at an even 60 but quickly dropped when the title made its appearance. exclusive fullscreen mode & 1366x768 made it run smoothly enough for me to enter the game and get a feel. about two minutes later, a quick steep drop from 60 to 5 in a matter of seconds. help me out?
Thank you for the feedback. I'll look into it. In the meantime, if you wouldn't mind telling me your specs that would be great!
the idea is incredable. scared me to death.
This game truly shows less is more
Thank you! I was indeed trying to keep it simple, as it is my first solo project. I'm glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for playing and for the feedback!
Gave it a try
We were definitely surprised on our first time playing anomaly, hah. The sound was jarring initially, and we didn't know what we were looking at.
Congratulations on such a remarkable experience. So simple yet exhilarating and terrifying. I loved the in game mechanic of how to avoid the Anomaly due to the fact that when you figure out how to do it, it was in a way . . . enlightening.
I would absolutely play a second level if you ever put one out. Great story, great concept, great and heart pounding game play.
Hope you like the video, feel free to share it anywhere you like.

Pretty good atmosphere, especially during chases. What really highlights the game is the visuals, which looks very claustrophobic and downright unsettling.
