What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I am a solo developer and the game is still in development. I want feedback on everything; difficulty, mechanics and narrative. The game has a very open type of both narrative and gameplay design, and because of that there is almost an endless room for small puzzles. That's where I would love to get all sorts of suggestions and crazy ideas from the community! And finally getting people playing and making sure that general gameplay and networking experience is as smooth as one expects from a good game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“6 months to a year is the goal. But I would like to be flexible so that the game can grow a little bit if there is feedback or ideas from the community that could greatly improve on the experience.”

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

“In the full game I plan to have:

8 different levels
8 weapons
6 enemy types
A clear narrative ending.
A lot more of the different interesting puzzles where the player gets to break the AI logic in all sorts of interesting ways!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The early access has all of the fundamental features of the full game, as well as content to have a really good time playing it with your friends.

In the Early Access:
2-4 player co-op and Singleplayer
3 Or more fully featured levels
A Horde mode with score attack
6 Different weapons
3 Enemy types”

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

“The price might increase slightly as the final game will be a more refined product with more content.”

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

“As mentioned before, I want feedback, suggestions and ideas from the players to help me shape the game into something really unique. And I want all the crazy little puzzle designs. I will use the Steam forums as well as a discord server to make sure everyone interested can participate and contribute.”

About This Game

Thousand of enemies!


Unique boss fights!

Embark on an intense and strange adventure, either solo or with up to three friends, as you step into a simulated reality under the control of a corrupted AI. Your mission: destroy the AI's plans before it takes over everything. Brace yourself for the ultimate showdown against an onslaught of thousands of enemies flooding the scene, but fear not, as you wield an arsenal of overpowerful weapons – just aim and fire!

You won't be alone. AI scientists will guide you from beyond the simulation, giving you instructions to analyze the AI's logic. As they unravel the AI's coding, the tasks they assign you will grow increasingly bizarre, all attempts to confuse and disrupt the AI.

Your role is clear: Just Read The Instructions and endure the relentless onslaught of enemies! Can you survive the chaos and dismantle the malevolent AI before it's too late?
