"The Other Side" is out now on Steam,
as part of the Unsorted Horror collection.


"The Other Side" is a puzzle horror game, where you secretly drill through a reinforced metal wall using a janky drill. You have to repair and maintain the drill throughout the process, using tools and other pieces of equipment to pinpoint and fix the issues that occur.


  • 15-18 minute playthrough.
  • Jury-rigged drill that has many configurable components.
  • 10 pieces of separate equipment required to maintain the drill.
  • No hand holding. Undecorated terminal text will guide your path.
  • Original soundtrack by Jabbu.


The game takes place in a cramped storage room inside a sprawling, windowless shelter built thousands of years ago. The smell of rust and decay lingers in the air. Nobody thinks about trying to go outside, because they don't know it exists. And those that do - they're quickly eliminated. There's a reason everyone is in this shelter, and the officers make sure everyone stays inside.

After an explosion blew on the surface level, in the doorless, windowless and cramped shelter, the crowd that gathered around all saw a glimpse of The Other Side. After the scene was cleared, and the hole walled off, over 200 people were killed. Nobody must know of the outside.

But they forgot one person.

Ever since, you've been fabricating a drill that can break through the reinforced wall of the shelter. Months of prototyping, noise complaints, bribes and close calls have lead up to this point. Today is the day you escape this hell, and find out the truth.

Breaking free from a windowless dystopia with determination, a drill, and a lot of noise complaints!


i finally escaped

Very good game!

The Other Side Full Gameplay: https://youtu.be/qqfmjlL1ra4?feature=shared

What a great game. A lot of work under pressure and looking over your shoulder when you are being timed. Game mechanics were engaging and the glimmer of hope at the end was a breath of fresh air that was short lived.

Atmosphere is very strong. Premise of the game is pretty simple yet gripping till the end. There's a great sense of isolation and dread in a room with drilling machinery. 

Your levels of curiosity and anxiety will increase incrementally. Sound design is outstanding.

hi ,, do u want to make a collab ??

idk bout them, but i can. u do unity?

I'm constantly amazed by the level of polish in this game. it's clear that every aspect has been carefully crafted.


The world-building is phenomenal. I love discovering all the lore and history.


The level design is fantastic. each area feels unique and engaging.

The sound design is so immersive. I often find myself getting lost in the game's audio landscape.

This game has a great sense of exploration. with secrets and hidden areas to discover.

The voice acting is superb. really bringing the characters to life.

love the rusty ambience 

great game, made mz heart beat like crayz and my hands are shaking rn

I liked the idea of actually getting out instead of isolating yourself in the box, away from danger.

They say dont fear the unkown, but in this case, its better!
Its the second game in my video:

Really like your games Mike! :)

Care to tell what engine you use? Selfmade, Unity etc.?

The Other Side is the first game I played in your Unsorted Horror compilation, it was such a fun experience in general but The Other Side had me hooked! The ending was also a fun little twist on this horror experience.

Very cool ending for this horror story! It took time to open the door but it was worth it by the end:

Finally got to play this game and I THOROUGHLY enjoyed it. Also, Attack on Titan reference at the end?? 

good game

Hurry and drill

Muy buen juego, recomendable :) 

totally didnt break the drill at one point......


This game was a really fun experience, so overall I rate it a 8/10.


This is a very interesting game that I had a lot of dumb fun with (feel free to drop a sub if you want :) )

Great experience. I love the atmosphere and problem solving.

A fun little horror experience, worth the price of entry for sure.


Is a Linux version available for this? Buckshot Roulette had one, wondering if it uses the same engine.


Nice and some challenge ! In French :


played this in the unsorted horror collection your games are always so amazing i cant wait to play more


Game 1

What a great experience! the atmosphere had my skin crawling!


Incredible game! Great atmosphere and very tense climax. Love the creativity on all fronts, music was great, textures added to an overall theme that was perfectly executed.  


Such a tense gamne, constantly thought something was oging to appear behind me 


What a brilliant idea for a game! I was immediately sold on the backstory and the atmosphere and the urgency of maintaining the drill felt electric "pardon the pun"! Loved it Mike Klubnika! Another belter!


Creative game once again you surprise me with your game ideas, the story, and graphics are always great, very interesting, congratulations, keep it up
