I can't believe that I deleted this game from my drive during the time it was free. Well I guess that's that. But when I did have it, it was an amazing horror experience that actually made me tense and uneasy.
A downloadable game for Windows and Linux
Prisoner 134. You have been purchased for testing and are now the property of BioMass Labs. Knowing nothing of the place you have been brought to, your only option is to enter the maze and solve the puzzles in the experiment.
In 2194 humanity has populated the entire galaxy. As our existence expanded, crime became harder and harder to control in the vast reaches of space. As a result, laws became more strict. Government attempts to wrangle the issue bolstered a growing police force and, over many years, the reach of law enforcement grew larger and more aggressive. The general population, simply wanting to feel safe, grew more accepting and the first fully commercially run prison systems took form.
Nearly one hundred years later, in 2290 imprisonment is common place. A blind trust has been placed in the commercial justice system eventually landing every day people in jail for years for even the smallest offenses creating a massive divide between the idea of prisoner and person. Hundreds of commercial prisons and law enforcement companies thrive.
Devaluing of prisoner lives and massive prison overpopulation gave birth to an auction system where anyone could purchase prisoners for any use free of legal ramifications.
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 waiting for law enforcement to release you to the company.
The subject is a sci-fi horror puzzle game designed to combine a mix of classic puzzle adventure games with horror elements.
You will need to learn to navigate the complex to find your way to the various puzzles set out in the experiment 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.

I thought itch kept track of downloads like that.
Looks like a really great game but I had a really weird bug where if I use my ps4 controller, my camera would spin around non-stop.
Thats super strange… have you messes with mouse/look sensitivity at all?
If you're using DS4Windows tick the 'hide ds4 controller' in the settings, that usually fixes the issue.
Been enjoying so far, but am completely stuck on the nav lock for the white door. I've done the four puzzle rooms and completed the circuit device thing, and also done the sliding locks on the console in the main room.
How do I open the nav lock?
Have you gone to the nav room and used the nav helper in front of the door to open it?
Hmm, I don't believe I have no, what does the nav room look like?
I booted up this game without looking much into it, other than the fact that it fell somewhere in the sci-fi horror genre. Boy, was I pleasantly surprised! And scared! The tension in the first 20 minutes or so of the game really got me good, and I love it for that.
I had to take a break from the tension so I'm writing this now, but I expect to get back to the game soon. Thanks for including Linux support, it's one less hurdle between me and enjoying the game.
On a side note, I've noticed a bug that makes the movement keys (WASD, in my case) non-functional after opening up the ESC menu. So far it hasn't been a big deal for me, but I am willing to provide more info if it helps.
Thanks for sharing such an atmospheric experience, this game is quite the hidden gem for me!

Are we talking about 2290 or 2020?
I had some issues (not with the game) and lost a lot of footage... but it's very atmospheric! I think about doing a stream with it.
Thank you for playing!
The game chooses a resolution that's too small for me to see the full window to change it. How can I set the resolution outside of the game?
Hey! You can find the game’s settings file located in your user folder:
you can right click this and open it with notepad and change your resolution by changing the “Resolution index” option.
Unfortunately the export doesn’t convert this index to a simple “number x number” resolution but you can change the number here to get different resolutions. (Mine is 35 for 1920x1080) though it auto populates based off of what resolutions your monitor supports so that number may be different for you.
I’d try a lower number like 20 to 25 and then you should have a better time changing it in game from there. Enjoy!
Is the 2.0 update or the 2.0.3 hotfix coming to Itch.io ?
It is. I’ve just been swamped with WTTG work so I need to set aside some time to make the necessary changes to being that version over to itch.
Ok so I've encountered two issues this far:
- I saved the game right before the monster attacked me, making it spawn-kill me everytime I reload my save.
- The monster seems to have no running animation, I assume this is a bug
This was in the current Linux-build here on Itch. Seems like a great game so far!
the save issu is kind of bound to happen if the player isn’t careful. Though that’s sucks. As for the no running animation, that’s interesting I’ll have to look at that. I haven’t seen that in my build. Thank you for letting me know!
Hey! I'm wondering when the Linux-version of the game will be available here on Itch? I'd love to add this game to my library :-)
Hey! I may try to get that done tonight. I have 3 projects going on at the moment so thank you so much for waiting! It’s on steam so it exists I just need to gut the steam integration.
No problem, just excited to see it here on Itch ^^ Will any of your other projects release here as well? If I like this game I'd love to follow your progress here on Itch ;-D
Are there any plans to release the full game onto Itch.io ?
Yes! I actually have a build for it but need to get in contact as they do not allow enough space for the game currently.
Gave it a go...
Thank you for sharing! So sorry I missed this. I've been busy with three other projects but I still shared :)
i play this game :D
