About This Game

Polarize is an experimental first-person horror game where a simple job turns into a horrific nightmare.


  • A short, experimental horror game intended to be finished in around an hour
  • PS1-esque graphics, with unlockable visual effects
  • Psychological horror that fills you with dread
  • Loads of achievements for any completionists out there
  • Quests to do in certain parts of the game
  • 2 endings, one of which is canonical to the story
  • Lots, and lots of secrets, waiting to be discovered


Tasked with printing out pictures (taken with an instant camera!) and placing them into a container, you must perform the same act around about 120 times... whilst being paranoid about the nightmarish creatures that await you outside your office. The lights occasionally turn off, and you must venture out of your comfort zone to restore it via a lever right outside.

Outside of your office (and sometimes in!), there are going to be nightmarish, shadow people that attempt to kill you. Use your instant camera to either A: kill them, or B: stun them and use your handy-dandy axe to kill them.

You need to plan your way to the lever to end the nightmare temporarily.
Or end it entirely...
