4/5 – Indie Game Reviewer

About This Game

“It is when our expectations are broken that we feel life the most.”
- a secret character in the game.

The fun of dying

Welcome to Anglerfish. Your secluded bar in Mols mountains. Here you will experience the true survival horror of dating, which means you will die multiple times. Every time you die, you must start the game over, but something always changes when you try again to survive your night out. Every change in your new run is handcrafted based on where and how you died. This means dying is a stimulating thing.

What will you do on your adventure?

You will try to survive your wildest night ever. To do this you must undercover the secrets hidden deep down in Anglerfish’s core by exploring every nook and cranny and solve the buried mysteries. But disturbing forcers will try to keep you from the truth, so you must be ready to fight back by blasting their heads off.

Based on a true psychological horror story

One of your friends from work is getting married. You're at his bachelor party with all of your colleagues at the bar, Anglerfish. It’s Look-a-like Thursday, so you fit in naturally with your schoolgirl uniform. You all have a friendly competition to see who will be the best man at the wedding. But your good time comes to an abrupt end, when the secrets of Anglerfish call for the last drink of the night.

Five things you should know about the game:
- You can pet the dog.
