The support I've been getting from the press, youtubers, streamers, influencers, users and cats has been amazing, and I only wanted to share that with Steam :)

Aside from that, some of you noticed the game had some ninja un-announced updates! What those little updated did was really simple: They balanced enemy placement in a couple of areas (not something game changing at all, as you all seemed to love it as it was!) and fixed localization for Russian, Chineese and Japaneese. Oh! I almost forgot! Steam cards have been added to the game :)

So, what's next? Well, I am opened to sugestions, but I plan to add a free DLC with new enemies an a new skill. A user said it would be awesome to be able to run in exchange of light... :) :) :)

Anyways, here is a selection of quotes from the Internet about Infernium.

Hope you all have a great week!



Infernium has done what a lot of the Dark Souls sequels have not: Give me a real sense of wonder and discovery.

Charles Kyle - The Loot Gaming

INFERNIUM presents an engaging portrait of a Hell that doesn’t imprison captives through divine wrath but through the player’s own nagging sense of curiosity.
Steven Porfiri - Crossfader Magazine

Often cruel, frequently captivating, and wildly esoteric, Infernium is an unforgettable and original interactive experience.
Andrew Beeken - Next-gen Gaming Blog

Indescribably magnificent level design, a sensational understanding of the movement, the puzzles and platforms, a visual and sound exhibition to remember, it rises deservedly with the outstanding categorization.
Ronald Goncalves - Area Jugones

Infernium causes addiction with its difficulty, causes frustration with its graphics, causes anguish with its sound quality and wonders us with its design.
Rubén - Nintenderos

While the idea of a developer taking some aspects from Pac-Man to design a horror game might sound absurd, it is what makes it unique and truly terrifying.

Few video games have made me as alert as this adventure

Triple A vertical level design

The moment you stray away from the path you will discover a secret world bigger and deeper than anything you could have imagined.
Cyril Lachel - Defunct Games

I really have to laud the developer from this game, to balance a game like this so extremly well, that even the most AAA titles cant compete with!

The game is beautiful, fun, scary, has some Great mechanics and some amazing puzzles! And to see that all of that was made by one guy is crazy! Carlos can put many large team AAA titles to shame.

New Accessibility and Twitch options!


My name is Carlos Coronado, gamedev of INFERNIUM. After the release I've been listening to your feedback and I've done something about it! The most important features this update brings are four accessibility options, thought for people who want to enjoy Infernium in a different way than I had in mind:

Now, when you it "Play" in the menu you will see a new button called "Accessibility". If you click on it you will see four options:

No Permadeath, No Enemies, Slower Enemies and more tutorials.

This options are thought for people having a bad experience with the vanilla game and I still think you should not activate them the first time you try Infernium.

The "No Permadeath" option will disable life lost when dying.

No enemies will turn Infernium into a walking simulator experience. The puzzles are still there though!

Slower Enemies will make all enemies 25% slower.

And More Tutorials will spawn extra tutorials in The purgatory, The Edge Fortress and the Memorandum explaining how the permadeath, skills and light systems works, as well as the Stairway to Heaven.

On the other hand, three more options have been added to the twitch integration and a game crashing bug releated to it has been fixed. The three options added are: sunny day, inverted colors and magic mushrooms. The maximum delay time between voting and triggering the events have also been lowered to 45 seg maximum.

Aside from all this, minor fixes have been added to the game, including gameplay balancing (this includes enemy new positioning and nerfing in some areas)

Remember the workshop keeps growing and growing too! Take a look at this mod by Espectro changing all the flying towels for Pac-Man ghosts!

The patch will also come to consoles shortly.

Remember we have memes and key raffles in the Discord!

About This Game

Pac-Man in hell

Infernium is a game filled with brutal challenges to overcome. While playing the game you won’t be able to kill or damage most of the enemies but at the same time running away without a second though is not the solution. While being chased you will need to think and reconsider your strategy and open hidden shortcuts while the world and it’s lore will unfold around you in a non-linear way making each playthrough diferent. From the creator of the multi awarded indie game of the year MIND: Path to Thalamus.

Every little change you make in Infernium will remain like that forever. As a player you will have to be smart about harvesting (or not) Light, interacting with doors, barriers and elevators and even your death. Dying does not reset the world, it’s part of the experience. That’s why there will be consequences if you act careless with your deaths.

Infernium is one of the easiest games to mod using the free Unreal Engine 4. If the world of Infernium is not enough for you explore the WORKSHOP to download expansions, modifications of Infernium or even brand new games, done with Infernium's content or custom content! PCMR Only feature.

Can hell be beautiful?

Infernium needed memorable appealing environments (instead of the usual images of a hell full of fire, suffering, screams and lots of reddish, gore landscapes) because in Infernium the most beautiful environments are also the most dangerous ones. This tends to generate disconfort, anxiety and inquietude in the player. It is no coincidence most of the brutal dangers in Infernium can be found at daylight in plain sight rather than in the darker claustrophobic environments.
