About

Infliction is an interactive nightmare, a horrific exploration of the darkness that can lurk within the most normal-looking suburban home.

Wander through the remnants of a once-happy family, reading letters and journals, listening to voicemails, and piecing together clues to understand the terrible events that led you here.

However, you are not alone. Something else has remained in this house, a being of infinite grief and rage. While you hunt for clues, it hunts you, waiting for its chance to unleash its anger on you.

Can you survive long enough to find atonement?

Key Features

  • You are not alone – A restless AI enemy will be stalking you, and you really don’t want to be caught. Will you hide, or find some way to fight back?
  • Warped reality – Explore a realistic, interactive suburban house that gets more fractured and twisted the deeper you go.
  • Piece it together – Read letters, find diaries, and examine the precious mementos of a broken family to understand the terrible events that led you here.
  • Almost too real – The story is grounded in real-world domestic tragedy, the fears and hurts that we all know: broken hearts, betrayed trust, grief, and loss.
  • Light and dark – The power of Unreal renders a photorealistic environment with dynamic lights and shadows that can dazzle you or plunge you into darkness.
  • Choose your challenge – Standard difficulty will occasionally point you in the right direction, but in hard mode you will be on your own.

The console version of Infliction will be playable at PAX West 2019, which runs from August 30 to September 2 in Seattle, alongside other titles from the Blowfish Studios lineup.
