A downloadable game for Windows and Linux

[Nov '18] - SteamVR now supported!

[Oct '18] - revamped tutorial and first level.

Your opinion matters!

If you wish to get more involved or/and know more about Prisoner518, check out our website: https://whippedupgaming.com

Info for discord (server name is; whippedUP_gaming) and a beta program can be found there.

You play the character of prisoner 518, set on a space station in 2049. What starts as an ordinary day soon descends into mystery after an explosion changes everything.

A mixture of physical/mental environmental puzzles, story progression and arcs that culminate into a climatic finale.

Explore and discover.  Observe and solve.

One aim of mine was to create a game based on story structure.  There are no cut-scenes, you the player, will live it as it happens.

Test out a beta build of the tutorial level and first section of the first level right now.  Let me know what you think. Thanks.

Install instructions

Unzip and run the .exe.

Okay, tried it! Thumbstick movement is a good thing, but I would prefer to be able to sidestep with its X direction, instead of just going backward and forwards. As it is now, it just feels off, somehow.

I didn't figure out that I had to press the trigger to "activate" the screwdriver, which looked pretty much like a normal screwdriver, and not like an electric device. Also, I just interpreted the screws as a static texture, not as something I could interact with. giving them 3D form would help a lot!

Other than this, the game already feels quite immersive. I quickly gets into the role!

Thank you for the feedback, Kasper, very much appreciated - and good points made!

Eventually, I will offer different control methods in the options (including sidestep).

The screwdriver definitely needs work! Noted.

Also, your notes will help when I build the content for the monitor - that should aid understanding in what's meant to be done.

Ever want me to return the favour, give me a shout.  :)

The game page says Mac and Linux are supported but the downlaod is just an EXE file which is Windows only. Am I Missing something ?

Hi PublicLewdness, my apologies - I initally intended to upload all versions in one zip, but decided against it - and then failed to upload other options.  Doing so now.

Thanks for the quick fixing. Trying it now !

I've just re-uploaded the zip files, I suspect there's a slight prefab corruption with the controllers - so if you can't grab or touch buttons, that's why.  But should be fixed now.
