  • Uncanny Valley

Uncanny Valley is a survival horror game, focusing on a bone chilling story, exploration and heart pounding action.

Uncanny Edition: if you buy this, you get the game and the soundtrack bundled together for a lower price.

About the game:
Uncanny Valley is a survival horror game that includes a mix of exploration, puzzle solving and a bit of action with a lot of optional story content. We're trying to preserve the old survival horror kind of gameplay instead of following the modern trend of creating a third person shooter with horror elements.

Story:
You play as a security guard named Tom at a remote facility. He's in charge of the night shift, while his lazy partner Buck is in charge of the day shift. Nights are long, so Tom starts exploring the facility and finds things he shouldn't. The story plays a huge part in the game, so saying anything more would be a major spoiler.

Consequence system:
Uncanny Valley's main difference from other games is a thing we like to call the consequence system. Whenever you fail at something, the game goes on, but with harsh consequences for your character that can impact both the story and the gameplay.

For example - you fail at avoiding your attackers, meaning your character will move slower throughout the game, making it harder to escape future pursuers. The player then needs to be careful and more clever, which adds more tension to the game. Of course, there are mistakes you can do that lead to your death, but we're trying to avoid that as much as possible.

Why? Because dying and repeating the same section over and over is tedious and leads to frustration. The game stops being scary if you're angry and just want to rush through it, so we think that adding such a system will still keep the tension while adding a new layer to scariness.

Key Features:

  • a huge, explorable facility with multiple floors and buildings
  • intense moments of dread
  • detailed story with rich characters
  • consequence system mechanic

 

Update #2 brings: Controller support! We finally managed to add controller support to the game, and it feels great, a lot more natural - and that's hard to admit since we're proud PC gamers here at Cowardly Creations. If you have any issues while playing with a controller please contact us at our email or post here in the Known bugs thread. Keep in mind that the engine only supports Xbox and PS3 controllers, meaning you must have some sort of a masking program like Xpadder if you own some other ...

Hello people, The launch was a bit rocky for some people who unfortunately ran into bugs. We did play test a month with about 25 people, but due to the nature of the game it's hard to find all of the bugs. Some of them were also depending on all the different hardware set ups. But! We are fixing all the issues really fast, two days after launch we should be getting rid of the majority of bugs. Here's the list so far: Bug fixes: - fixed several crashes (all of the reported ones) - weird crash hap...
