About This Game

Mankind has colonized Proxima Centauri b, a tiny desolate world around a dim star, just 4 light years away. The Mimic is a predator native to this world. It's a perfect hunter and it has escaped containment. You're all that's left from a crew of 10.

The Mimic

In this unique platform puzzle solver, you take control of the Engineer whose every move is shadowed by the Mimic. As you move, so does the Mimic. There is a connection between the two of you, if you get your Mimic killed, you die. If you get too close, you die.


You don't just have the Mimic to fear, there's also the deadly environment you have to watch out for too. Malfunctioning defence systems, security grids and dead ends where you can trap yourself in with your Mimic, could all easily lead to your death.

Key Features

  • Solve tough and challenging puzzles as you avoid the ultimate predator.
    -Escape is your only route to survival.
  • Unique Mechanic
    -If your Mimic dies, so do you. This introduces a whole new way of navigating levels, keeping track of both characters requires a lot of skill.
  • Story driven single player campaign.
    -Discover what happened to the dead crew through their logs and documents.
    -Learn about the crews' mission, the base you inhabit and the world you colonized.
  • Local two player coop.
  • Time Trial mode to test your puzzle solving skills.
  • Over 85 levels
