Caffeine is a first-person, Unreal Engine 4-powered horror adventure game about a boy wandering around a seemingly abandoned space station. It’s set in a world where coffee is mined from space, or something, and I remain sceptical of how that silliness will affect the game’s fear-based elements. Developer Dylan Browne describes Caffeine as a “quirky psychological horror adventure game with an atmosphere heavily inspired by games like Condemned, FEAR and Outlast”. He doesn’t explain which brand of coffee he’s been inspired by.
Caffeine is a quirky first person psychological horror adventure game with environmental puzzles.
Set in the near future, the entire population of Earth is vigorously addicted to coffee. Massive space stations built by the biggest corporations roam the stars mining minerals to create a synthetic caffeine.You awaken aboard one of these caffeine mining stations alone.
Before long you realize that you are a young boy with no memory of what has transpired on this seemingly empty space station. Naturally you set out to explore the depths of the huge structure to figure out what exactly is going on.
Caffeine is currently in development utilizing the power of Unreal Engine 4, which allows for a very high visual fidelity and a fairly fast development period.
