Sights of The Core in lucid dreams.

uchas gracias por crear el juego, saludos!!!

The appearance of the monster at the beginning of the game turned out to be too frightening and stressful for me... πŸ˜³

I wish there would me more of these kind of games that play in massive facilities

terrifying game. almost shit myself

I had a feeling author was inspired by Mike Klubnika, 

Turns out its just your old work

Amazing as allways

This game gave me arachnophobia lol

Good game!

Epic Game! Some rooms reminded me of portal 2.


Great atmosphere, felt like im in some kind of spaceship or planet.

tough to play this game, but great game!

Nice game !

Such an awesome game, I died a lot but that was great as I found it challenging.   Anyone reading this MUST play this game.

Thank you :)


Nah, this one's not my bread and butter. But nicely done anyway.

No problem, thanks for checking it out!

Hey Mike,if you are fine with it, i would like to ask you to, please do a linux version of your games. I know wine exist but there are stuff that work better without emulating it. Again, you don't need to but it would be greatly apreciated. Thanks.

If I have time I'll see if I can do linux versions for my previous games. Regardless, you can expect linux support for future games!

thanks mate, btw i was able to prove my point running a windows version of a game and then a linux version of it an i saw that the linux version runned mutch smoother, i was also asking this because i only have a very poopy acer laptop that came with windows 7, and cannot run more than 1 youtube tab.

That's interesting. Thanks for pointing it out.


Love the ambiance that you knowingly can provide in the visual/audio department in a cinematic sense, but for the developer if you enjoy hearing feedback/responses to your game, if not for the entire video, I elaborate more nearing the end and after the end, where I explain what I love and my reasoning and also some theories to the game. Happy I came back to check this out. 


Thanks, really appreciate that! :)


got me shittin' bricks my guy

That's so cool, thanks for letting me know :)


You know what is funny, I swear I had a dream almost exactly like this game.

Didn't really like the chase scene, found it a bit difficult.

However, I loved the atmosphere. The rusty, red lighten building really gave me the chills.

Will come back to it so I can enjoy it again.

Look forward to future projects.

 Hey! I played your game on my stream! Watch it to see the live review!  Here's the link for it: https://www.twitch.tv/nitro_spacematterplay πŸ˜„

  I would also appreciate if you could give an opinion on our latest game. Game devs advice is precious because we know better what it takes to make something work. It's called "Backdoor Shifts"

Thanks for the review, greatly appreciated

91/100 VERY GOOD

Thanks a lot!


This game has an interesting story that is told by the surroundings Get horror and a great game, keep it up

Thank you!



Thank you :)


Well that was irritating, amazing - but infuriating; I died a lot till I got a hang of closing the doors. So many times it just managed to sneak through before I closed the doors on it. Nice work on the enemy, it was a real challenge to get those doors open and get around the monster when it seemed to travel at random. Really made me have to think when I could get out from under the table.

The game was a lot of fun, and the enemy me design was unique.

Thanks a lot!


This was a really good game will say i really hate being chased but thats what makes a horror game better keep up the good work



Very atmospheric experience, liked how the creature looked like and the chase sequences were really cool. Seeing something as big as the CORE was really sick to say the least. Thank you for making this! 1st game.


Thank you so much!


Very cool experience! You weren't kidding when you said the sound design was on point. The lore was subtle, and I'd have loved there to be more of it, but this was an experience that was hard to complain with. Thanks for sharing it with us!


Thanks for the kind words! :D


Good horror game. I loved the atmosphere. Congrats.

Thank you :)


This Game Was So Good Thank You For Making It.

Thank you! I really enjoyed the commentary lol, the power wash chamber


That was Epic 4/5



Hi there, I am DragonExplosion and I am a Youtuber. If you like my videos, please leave a like and subscribe at my channel.

This was a cool horror game that I actually enjoyed. The game was full of suspense and I could feel my heart beating really, really fast, during every single level including the monster. The design of the monster was creepy as it is a spider with a really big head. I enjoyed being scared by the monster, running away from it and the quick reflex moments. It would be cool if there was more story-telling involved so that players can understand what is the main character doing and what are the monsters that are present there. The design of the map kinda reminded me of SCP and I liked it. Thanks for making me feel so anxious and scared of getting murdered by the monster XD.

Thank you for reading my comment and I wish you good luck in your future endeavours.


Thank you for the kind words, greatly appreciated :)


Great game! I would have to agree with everything Niven said below.



Surprisingly amazing and unique!

The game did remind me of the older horror industrial games with grand environments, tall ceilings and crawling monsters. This game did capture that experience perfectly. I enjoyed myself playing this very much.

I Have no complaints about anything - it was well crafted, no bugs, no issues with the mechanics, sound design was great, the structure of the level looked decent, everything was fantastic. 

Can't wait to see more from you, developer. Cheers! I do hope you will enjoy the video. 

Thank you, that means a lot!
