What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We wanted to go down the early access route as player-feedback and suggestions should be driving the content we make. This is also our first commercial title so the revenue generated from Early Access can be used to help improve the game and hire talent.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We estimate that we will remain in early access for 3-6 months. This gives us enough time to finish the story we had planned, polish up the game and provide the players a great experience. We have discussed alternate game modes so it could be longer if that is something players want us to do!”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Early access gives you the chance to play the game while we develop it. The full version will be much more polished. We aim to have multiple 'zones' which engage the user alongside a variety of monsters to evade. We would love to add alternate game modes like pvp, random generation and survival challenges and these may very well be in the full game assuming our Early Access goes well!.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Right now, our early access features 3 'zones' of the planned 5 for the story. While it is completely playable, we are missing notes, tapes and various other lore items. There is a lot that needs polishing; For example, only 2 of our 4 monsters use custom animations. We feel the game is in a good state to be released publically though!”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We will likely increase the price at full release. The price will be determined by how much content and features we get into early access, alongside the cost to continue to develop the game.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We are actively engaging our players on both our socials and our official discord. We are trying to be as open and interactive as we can. We take suggestions/all criticisms and feedback seriously and have actively implemented player ideas. We want players to feel they are part of our community and we will do whatever we can to keep them in the loop!”

About This Game


Labyrinthine is a cooperative horror game that may make you never step into a hedge maze again...

You and up to 3 friends can embark in an online cooperative experience as you try to unravel the mystery of the abandoned happisburg hedge maze. You won't be alone in there...

Gameplay

Labyrinthine aims to be a true horror experience complete with all of the horror staples you may be used to. While navigating the regions of the happisburg hedge maze, you will be solving puzzles, collecting items and escaping the horrific entities that lie within it. Cooperative has been the focus since the start of development, so heading in with friends is recommended!


Found items will also provide you with a brief respite from the horrors of the maze, whether it's a simple compass to help you keep track of your heading or a flaregun to allow your friends to find you. Notes are scattered around that will provide clues and give you insights into the history and lore of the maze.


When playing online, you team can be an essential asset if you work together and plan ahead... but staying together isn't always the safest option..

Surviving the maze will require navigation skills, puzzle solving and planning. Do not fall prey to that which awaits in the maze...

Cooperative at Heart

While completely playable as a single player experience, Labyrinthine offers a fairly rare opportunity within the horror genre, cooperative play. A decision that was made way back at initial conception, Labyrinthine has been focused on delivering a fun, unique and exciting cooperative experience right from the start. The development team behind the game are all huge fans of the cooperative and horror genres, making a union between the two a perfect fit.

Story

The Hedge Maze at ol Jonny Honk’s Fair has been there as long as anyone can remember, but it's never been open. The rumor is, a kid named Charles got lost in it, went in and never came out. When a cop went in after them they went missing as well. No one’s entirely sure, but the locals tend to keep away from it. The maze lives right on the edge of the Local Fairgrounds, and they are hoping to open it up as an attraction.

Built on the land of Ethel Fir. A twice widowed woman who died in 1935 leaving no will and no heir. It's said the maze was a crazed project she had worked away at for years before her death. She had fervently planted and shaped the trees muttering about looky loos, and nosey brats as it grew bigger each year, surrounding her house and grounds, and slowly growing taller and taller. After nearly 8 years without anyone seeing her, the local authorities assumed her dead, and entered the maze. They found her home in a state of disrepair, food clearly long rotten, and it appeared no one had lived in it for quite a long time. They searched the home, and what they could of the maze itself, but failed to find her body or any information regarding her death. Without a will in place, her property was left to the state, and turned into a local park, open to the fair when it visited town.

It's said that from time to time kids will wander in on a dare, or couples will enter trying to find old Ethel's home as a quiet place to be together. Often they come out safe and sound, if a little excitable, but the town has always had a higher than normal rate of missing persons. No one has ever been found in the maze. In the light of day it's simply an overgrown hedge, and a dilapidated home from the late 1800s.

This year the maze has been designated as an attraction and the Fair needs some help setting up after previous employees have either quit or disappeared.
