Buy Masochisia



“...A narrative-heavy horror adventure that places you in the role of an abused boy who may be on the path to becoming a brutal killer. It's spooky, effective and well done.”

“This game is not for the faint of heart... Masochisia is a refreshing change of pace for the point and click horror genre.”
The Escapist

“...When you realise that many of the events portrayed in Masochisia actually happened, the more uncomfortable you’ll become. Art imitating life may prove a little too much for some to stomach.”
The Digital Fix

About This Game

Developers Note: Masochisia is an experimental take on psychological horror games as a narrative. Individuals struggling with depression, abuse or mental illness may be uncomfortable with some of the themes. The experience is intended for mature audiences.

No one ever really understands you...

...do they?

"Extensive psychological abnormalities with a genetic predisposition to sadomasochistic tendencies."

But-- that's not the question, the question is what are you going to do about it? Yes, you're crazy. But so was your Father, your Mother, your Brother. So, if we're being honest with each other, we can't say we're all that surprised are we? The visual hallucinations, the aural terrors, the sensory overloads… more daily routine for you than a burden! If anything, you seem to be almost thriving- in your own peculiar way...
