Don't Knock Twice - New Horror Game with Free Demo!

One Knock To Wake Her From Her Bed, Twice To Raise Her From The Dead

Hello everyone! The Wales Interactive team are back with our most exciting project to date, the upcoming first-person horror game, Don’t Knock Twice.

Why is this our most exciting project? Not only because we are working alongside the upcoming film starring Katie Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica) but because we’re building the game specifically with AND without VR support from the very start.

So, what does this mean for the release? The game will launch on PC, PS4 and XO in Q1 2017 and we are lucky enough to be able to work with all three leading VR devices; HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and PlayStation VR. The VR demo is available right now for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.

We made this short demo in VR to show off some of the interactivity features we are working with as well as to try and create a creepy, atmospheric experience in just one single space. The full game will take place in the same traditional manor with access to explore all depths of the environment. This is the very first time we have released a demo on Steam so we hope you all enjoy it!

About This Game

The Infinity is the largest spaceship ever built by man-kind; flung into the void of space to secure humanity a new home amongst the stars. However, instead of discovering paradise, the inhabitants of The Infinity unlocked the door to a long forgotten nightmare.

Deep inside this leviathan something terrible hunts, out of myth and legend the last werewolf stalks the ship. Infinity Runner centres on a prisoner desperately trying to escape the decaying ship and the clutches of the terror within. It’s a sci-fi action running game for PC, Mac, and Linux that features 14 action packed levels, Oculus Rift DK1 & DK2 (Runtime 4.4) support and online multi-player.

In Infinity Runner, the player controls the protagonist, the prisoner, from a first-person perspective as he is challenged to escape from the gargantuan spaceship. This is accomplished by use of techniques and movements inspired by the disciplines of parkour and mixed martial arts, the game-play conveys the players strain and physical contact with the environment whilst dealing with the constantly changing and expansive surroundings. As well as these evasive elements there’s also combat sections in the game where a dynamic targeting system is used which calls for fast reflex combinations. The game supports the latest virtual reality technology as well as having multi-player mode which enables up to 32 people to play head to head.

Even though it’s a slick action game the story is very important part of your journey, as well as being your call to action it will reveal revelations along your action packed ride. Some of the story is told at high pace but there are some slower paced transition sections at the end of each level where we develop the narrative for the player. Without giving too much away you have someone guiding you through the game who talks to you telepathically. Their role is not only to orientate you but to help unfold the story for the player as you find out who you are and why you’re on the ship.

The Oculus Rift mode literally transports you inside the Infinity spaceship to be totally immersed in the thick of the action. The game-play is designed to complement the VR mode so you get the best experience possible and it enhances the game by adding another dimension to the playing experience.

There is also another feature that transforms the game into a unique experience, the multi-player mode. This allows up to a 32 players to battle it out head to head to find out who’s the ultimate Infinity Runner.

Infinity Runner packs a lot into one super slick sci-fi action game bundle and with it re-invents the running genre!

* OCULUS RIFT MODE (DK1 - DK2 Runtime 4.4)

Over 150 miles long and nearly 30 miles in diameter at its widest point, the progress of The Infinity's construction at the Tranquillity Ship yards on the Moon could clearly be seen from Earth. The revolutionary ship requires a crew of 5,000,000 people to keep it running and is designed to house another 10 million people as general population ready for the colonisation of new worlds. The Bio-domes, seen along the side of the ship, house forests that cover nearly 60,000 square miles in total, providing oxygen and a food source for the population and an environment for rest and relaxation. The greatest technological achievement can be found in the engine room, which houses the revolutionary Infinity Drive. It is vastly smaller than previous engines at a mere 10 miles long and far more powerful than traditional models which would take up to a third of the length of a starship, creating space for more brave colonists heading out into the unknown.

+ Sense of speed
+ QTEs fit the game
+ Unlimited replay value with Infinity mode
+ Decent voice acting

+/- Had to use both my controller and mouse in order to get through the menus (even after reconfiguring)
+/- Setting isn't all that interesting, but not bad

- Too dark (even after adjusting the settings)
- QTE scenes sometimes take too long and slow down the experience
- Tutorial isn't fully worked out; some things are clearly explained while others are not
- Mediocre graphics

Infinity Runner could be passed off as a "Temple Run" clone on first impression, but once you get into the game you'll discover that Infinity Runner offers much more than just that. The game keeps throwing you into interesting set piece moments and new obstacles to keep you on your toes. The game is set in the first person perspective and that helps the player get a good sense of the game's speed.

The graphics aren't bad, but they do look dated, comparible to the end of the PS2 era. Though it may lack in high poly models, or high resolution textures, it does feature some nice particle effects, and though the graphics are dated, they do look good for what it is.

Overall Infinity Runner suprised me by how much I've actually enjoyed this game. It's streangely addictive, and the set peice moments of the game are quite exhilarating.

- Addictive game play
- Set peice moments are exhilarating
- Story is suprisingly well fleshed out
- Lots of features to explore

- Dated graphics
- QTE combat
- Might be too simple for some

Infinity Runner seems unusual upon first hearing the pitch. It’s a game about a prisoner trapped inside a massive spaceship who is suddenly freed one day and seeks to make a run for it. However, this isn’t your everyday criminal — he’s also a werewolf. Yes, it’s patently ridiculous but also kind of cool. How does this runner stand up in comparison with the rest of the genre? In Infinity Runner, players are given a first-person perspective. Everything is seen from the eyes of the prisoner/werewolf sometimes including his naked arms and legs. Still, the basic mechanics of a platformer come into play. Timing is paramount to staying alive, as one wrong move will see you toasted by lasers, falling into the dark void of space, or worse.According to the plot, spaceship Infinity is the largest ever built. Yet there’s not a ton of variety amongst the seven different sections. Each section contains two levels within it and they regularly boil down to incredibly dark, tight hallways. They’re all interspersed with traps that will either sap bits of health or offer a one-hit kill. Every trap has a trick or two for successfully avoiding it. This might include jumping, sliding, running left or right, or combining actions to stay safe. Infinity Runner starts off by explaining how to handle new obstacles, but a couple are never explained which leads to a little trial and error.Mainly it is facing actual enemies that tweaks the formula. Stopping them revolves around Quick Time Events which seem semi-randomized. Thankfully, you’re given some breathing room in regards to how long you have to enter a combination. Get one thing wrong and you’ll be sent back to the checkpoint. A slight change to this formula comes when in werewolf mode as it is nearly indestructible. As a werewolf, enemies no longer pose a threat and are automatically taken care of. A handful of modes are included, although none particularly change up the formula. Story mode provides players with a narrative while running through levels while arcade mode challenges them to get the best score. Multiplayer mode is much the same, except that multiple people can play at once. None of them are actually seen, though, so it’s mostly asynchronous fights for leaderboard supremacy.Beyond the werewolf and first-person perspective concepts, there’s not too much that makes it stand out. Visuals are serviceable, but never get a chance to shine thanks to copious hallway scenes. One special feature is that Infinity Runner can be played with an Oculus Rift. I can’t speak of how the game runs from that perspective without owning the device.Infinity Runner has a fun, unique concept that isn’t utilized to the fullest. Dodging obstacles would be more rewarding if the difficulty ramped up alongside story mode. Instead, it reaches a certain level and stays there depending on the initial difficulty selected. There’s simply no urge to keep playing if skill isn’t being tested. The droll sci-fi storyline only goes so far and its runner mechanics have been done better before. Owning an Oculus Rift is the main reason to buy it, as the device is currently lacking in platformers. Still, there are likely better-than-average titles right around the corner.Overall 5/10.

Canabalt if you added a thrid dimension crossed with Mirror's Edge but on rails (and with combat that doesn't utterly kill your momentum). It's pretty fun, and addictive enough that I completed the story mode in one go and then played through the hard and arcade modes until some real-life errands dragged me away. Normally for a game this short I'd say the price is a bit high, but it's a game based around being fast, so. It also has to be commended for having a silly premise but making it work by playing it straight; way too many games start with a wacky idea and then constantly push it with zany humour until you're sick of the entire thing.

The flaws obviously weren't enough to stop me playing, but they're worth noting: I don't think a game like this really needs a lives system, it would probably be enough just to dock your score when you die. There were a few rare instances where I failed to dodge an obstacle and kind of just clipped through it instead, which was helpful but probably something that might need fixing. The biggest flaw for me was that the voice actor (there's really only one with a speaking role) runs through her lines faster than a werewolf through a spaceship. Better voice direction would really have helped there, towards the end I was beginning to suspect they'd shot the cutscenes before they recorded the dialogue and panicked when they realised they weren't long enough to get out what little plot the game has.

Decided to pick this up after seeing Jim Sterling playing it, interesting premise and it was pretty cheap.
Infinity runner is basically all about running down a massive spaceship, occasionally you’ll turn into a werewolf. The game handles running on your behalf, so you just need to avoid obstacles and go around corners. This is a lot harder than it sounds. I think it interesting that some people compared this to Temple Run. Yes its somewhat similar, but this feels much more like an old school arcade game to me. The difficulty curve is pretty steep, your first few runs will probably end with you running into a wall. However once you’ve got to grips with the controls it becomes a lot more rewarding. Nailing a difficult section with the soundtrack pumping makes you feel like a boss.

The pace of the game is FAST, you really have to concentrate at all times. I don’t normally like QTE’s but here they break up the gameplay nicely and let you relax, albeit just for a few seconds.
Graphics are pretty good especially the parts where you transition outdoors. I’m able to play it on max settings on my laptop which is a nice surprise.

Haven’t had a chance to play multiplayer yet but it sounds interesting.
All in all this is a good game in a niche genre. There are a lot worse games on steam at this price.

While normally not anything like the usual type of game that I would play, the idea of werewolves in space was just too fun a concept for me to pass up. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was fun to play. Its kinda entertaining to just go through in Arcade mode and see how long it takes me to faceplant into a wall by failing to make a turn in time (or, more embarassingly, turning the wrong way), while trying to keep myself from accidentally jumping face-first into the obstacles I'm supposed to be sliding under.

The Quick Time Events, which normally annoy the hell out of me, didn't do that in this game, well, except for that one fight at the end. Though, really, I think the game would have been better with more werewolf in it.

I really wish steam had a middle answer.
Its ok but very repetive and feels like a mobile game. It is quick and you get a real sence of speed and mobility.

Good for what it is; but it isn't much

Oh boy...This game..

Well, its a game where you automatically run down corridors occasionally turning left or right and dodging everything possible. you go through "Sections" which take about 3 minutes or so to complete at a time. Took me 90 minutes to complete this game which amazed me. The game is VERY short. but it was pretty fun time I must say

Though...The Final Part of the game is CHEAP. There is no Combat in this game it is all QTE's (Quick Time Events) and the final area is only that. and this game is very picky. so if you hit one wrong key BOOM..Restart. and you try again, but of course losing all your lives will force a restart on the entire final stage again just to retry that frustrating final encounter.

So overall I liked the game, but that final area really got to me after retrying the level a few times to actually pass it. for the sale price I got it for ($2.99) its really not bad.

Overall I really enjoyed Infinity Runner, however its definitely not one for someone looking for a relaxing experience! It’s really intense a challenge for more hardcore players. I also can highly recommend the Hard difficulty for the sadists among you.
Graphics wise it holds up, not that you notice much the speed your going! the Monorail section being a highlight in my opinion. The other Arcade modes gives some good replay value and I’m slowly making my way though the challenge mode which adds a visual level to your running skills.
I have only played one Multiplayer game but from what I tried it’s a variety of the story mode levels, randomly it reminded of Wipeout HD with the Speed and Power-ups.
I recommend Infinity Runner as something different to play, its intense but it seems to pack a lot of content and gives some good challenges.

4 out of 5 stars.
I don't own an occulus rift, so I can't rate it on that experience. I can however rate it on its gameplay.

I find Infinity runner is a game best entered with few expectations. It promises pretty much what you think it does. Its a first person action running simulator.
That said, its an on rails obstical course with an interesting twist. The werewolves in space theme allows you to turn into a hulking werewolf mid-run, and change many of the rules in your favor, as it should. The combat in the game (yes, it has combat) is in the form of QTEs depending on the position and number of enemies in a room. If you succeed the challenge, you are rewarded with a smash and kill style fight as your avatar kills everyone in the room and continues to run at break neck speeds.
Yes, you are running at break neck speeds as any failure to react correctly to the environment as it explodes around you is an instant death. Thankfully you as a player are barely penalised, as you are almost immediately put back into sonic speeds at revival.
I rate this game highly because I believe it accomplised its goal almost entirely. I found myself glued to the screen, not trying to contemplate what was going on in the world, but instead reacting to my immediate environment. Each level brings its own style of obsticals, from literally jumping through space to sliding under gunships as they lay fire down on my naked body.

I wouldn't play this game for the lore, but why would you? This is a game meant to be played for about 20 minutes at a time, and is very satisfying as that. RUN!

This game was advertised as a parkour werewolf in space game. I was sold no matter how bad it would be. Never have I been more mislead. It's just another crappy temple run game. Parkour shouldn't even been allowed in the description. Steam should have allowed refunds on how misleading this game was

Meh. It was okay.

Very nice graphics, it's a short first person runner but it actually has a decent storyline and some quick time events thrown in. The werewolf portions make you feel invincible. Worth the sale price right now of $2.37

Supports controllers and also supports VR.

Unfortunately, like any runner game on mobile or on Steam, it gets repetitive. It was a chore to finish as it's the same thing over and over but just faster to try to keep your reflex on edge but it's super cheap so whatever.

This is a 50/50 game, at times you get caught up in the first person running, other times you get frustrated due to bad lighting and some obstacles that seem impossible to get around. It can be fun running on walls and riding ropes, then get frustrated because when you die you have to completely start over a long level. The story is interesting to say the least. I reccomend it for the lols and for the good times that can be had, otherwise its below average.

Very enjoyable game. Really loved it.

Well, normally I do not enjoy platformers nor running games, because most of the time I fail in these genres. But this game has werewolves in space, so I thought I give it a try. And I never regretted it.

  • WEREWOLVES IN SPACE - they are so cuddly
  • Nice graphics, nice cutscenes
  • fluid gameplay, no frame rate drops
  • parcour themed, 1st person, not too hard
  • QTE combat system fits the game perfectly
  • varied level graphics fit a humongous spaceship
  • Arcade modes, Collectibles, Challanges, nice Trading Card Graphics

  • Could have more werewolves in it.
  • Werewolf mode is mostly a bonus level - a bit of wasted potential
  • Turning mouse gestures sometimes a bit sluggish -> running into walls
  • Story could be a bit more fleshed out
  • Ends in "to be continued" - a bit of a downer
  • Game was completed on easy within two hours

Overall, I give it a 7/10 and I had a lot of fun.

This game is about runing, tons of running. To be honest, I can't be believe how relaxing this game can be. You... just run, dogde object, kill bad guy, reach your destination, and that's it. It's fun to play, the only thing that bored you that after one or more try, you know everything to expect so can't play forever, yeah? The music is decent but you should play your own bad-♥♥♥ music to boost moral. Hehe.

The story is imcompleted, though.

You may like to give it a go if you want something for a nice change of pace. It's fun and worth your time.

This game is fun and interesting. Some challenges, but can get boring quick. Had to replay a few times to figure out why i died and you have to react quickly. The insructions on what to do... well you have to read fast or you'll die. I would play this again, (thank goodness for steam's 2 week refund limit) i will keep this game but its not my genre. Only recommendation I have is, buy it on sale.

Infinity Runner is an endless running game with obstacles and fights (there's also a story mode, if that's your thing). It has oculus rift support and also it obviously has keyboard controls, personally i'm using a keyboard for this review.

There are alot of bad points to this game: too hard to see most obstacles, tutorial barely lets you time to read the instructions and you're already dead: "Jump!" 0.5 seconds later you fall to your death. Unskippable cutscenes and just tedious to play in general. It's as if you have to remember what to do everytime you die and not re-do it the next time around in order to succeed (for the story mode, anyways).

The sadest thing is that the voice acting is not so bad, but the way her voices comes in, the amount of feedback and distortion in her voice, most of the time it just hurts my ears or I can't really understand what she's trying to say.

Most obtacles are trial and error, because it's not quite clear what is needed to do. Also so far from the chapters i've played, which have 2 levels each, they reuse the same rooms that the other level had used in the same chapter. There's around 6-7 chapters with 2 levels each I suppose and they manage to reuse the same exact rooms in the same chapter, unbelievable!

The music is fine and the graphics are fine, but the gameplay is quite bad. I don't recommend this game.
