Caffeine is a new PC horror title from local Adelaide developer Dylan Brown that takes place on an interstellar caffeine mining space station, and is inspired by the likes of F.E.A.R and Condemned. The game is utilising Epic's latest Unreal Engine 4 and looks every bit as terrifying as it sounds.
The Year is 2097, the Earth is over-populated and is lacking resources.

The most consumed drug is caffeine and companies have countless outposts among the stars mining the resources required to quench the endless thirst of Earth's population.
One of the big focuses for Caffeine is the fact that the game won't have any weapons, instead taking a leaf from Amnesia or Dear Esther by putting you on a rather horrifying interactive ride. Brown describes Caffeine as "primarily be a Sci-Fi Horror game, but at the same time employ[ing] a strong focus on both adventure and narrative and will include some smart puzzle game play."

Brown has launched his game onto IndieGoGo, looking for $80,000 to bring Caffeine to life, though has also pushed the game over to Steam Greenlight. So far the project has raised just under $2,000 with 43 days left to go so pull out those wallets if you feel like giving yourself a scare. You can check out the teaser trailer below, and a demo is also available over here.

Currently Caffeine is looking to support Windows on launch as a 100% DRM-free version, though Brown has mentioned that Mac and Linux may see a release depending on funding. A PlayStation 4 version may also see the light of day depending on funding as well.

5yo running around a ship or maybe the developers are just 3ft tall. Once again I'll have to edit the crapola out of the scripts just to get this hunk of crap feeling the way it should. I'll add it to my favourites on steam and wait a couple of years for it to drop to $5.

In all honesty I enjoyed Dear Ester but I wouldn't pay a cent for it.

I enjoy these kinds of games for the story, adventure and mystery aspects, but then I'm generally such a scaredy cat I can't pay the terrifying ones!

Didn't they do this and call it "Amnesia: A machine for pigs"?

What I remember from that was everyone f*****g -hated- it.

interstellar caffeine mining space station


I'm not too interested in the horror premise, but it's oddly amusing to see that humanity's reason for spreading out into the stars is for the noble reason of acquiring a better morning buzz. As if the greatest discovery of mankind is that the mineral form of caffeine is 1000x better than the plant form, like some coffee equivalent of hydroponic weed or something.
