Twitter social event!

I'm running a few social events on Twitter. One gives a random person who retweeted their name in the game as an Easter egg and the other gives 5 people access to alpha testing through to launch!

The Subject is on Kickstarter!

The Subject Kickstarter Page

I'm very happy to announce that The Subject now has a Kickstarter campaign live!

It has been a productive 4 months working on The Subject and I feel a great deal of work has been put into things.

I originally didn't plan on doing a Kickstarter but I feel it can help me in a lot of ways. I have put a good chunk of my own funds into The Subject and I plan to until the end.

However, support from a KS could really help smooth things out. Purchasing new licenses, paying for sound FX and music, purchasing test machines for Xbox, Ps4, and VR development, and a lot more could be taken care of. So lets all cross our fingers and hope for the best!

Please take a moment to share the KS page wherever you can and support if you feel my work merits it. I appreciate help in any way! Thank you so much!

About This Game

In 2194, commercialized prison systems had become overcrowded. Fighting to make room for more prisoners, and more profit, an auction system was put in place designed to transfer prisoners to various employers.

Nearly one hundred years later, in 2290 the system has become more aggressive and more lenient. As the system became common place the public started viewing it as natural and a blind trust has been placed in the justice system.

Prisoners are now objects, losing all rights when taken into custody and are instantly flagged as property, bought and sold throughout the galaxy for any use legal or otherwise without consequence to the buyer. You have been purchased.

Acquired in the most recent bulk order of prisoners for BioMass Labs, you are being shuttled off for study at the Kohate testing facilities. No information is known about the details of the study.

You have been black-bagged, loaded onto a transport shuttle and are awaiting assignment.

The subject is a sci-fi horror puzzle game designed to feel like a mix of classic puzzle adventure games and layering in horror elements and the pressure of being hunted.

you are the next subject in-line for testing. You are forced into a maze-like complex that you will need to learn and navigate to find your way to the various puzzles set out for you and discover the reason behind the testing.

You are being monitored by those running the tests and are required to visit a bio-data terminal periodically to record your vital signs and other data for record keeping. If you fail to do so, you will be removed from testing by euthanization.

Every aspect of The Subject from it's puzzles and design to the art direction are meant to work hand-in-hand to deliver an experience of isolation, mental challenges, anxiety, and fear.
