The tale of Incandescent Imaging’s Caffeine is a long one. Having been announced in April last year, Caffeine has seen two unprofitable crowd-funding campaigns and a successful Steam Greenlight promotion as well as an appearance at numerous events. The latest of which, AVCon 2015, Adelaide, benefited from a brand new demo which Incandescent Imaging has now made available for all to download.
Caffeine is a first-person psychological horror set in the near future. The entire population of Earth is addicted to coffee and massive space stations built by the biggest corporations roam the stars mining minerals to create a synthetic caffeine. The player awakens aboard one of these caffeine mining stations alone and with no memory of what has transpired on this seemingly empty space station.
“As this is a convention build it was designed as a short contained demo to give players a taste of the atmosphere of Caffeine, this includes some awesome new sound design by Jonathan Wachoru and music from Bay Drive Sound’s Adam Klingman,” states developer Dylan Browne on the official Incandescent Imaging website. “The demo is targeted at 1080p 30fps for demo purposes, you can change this in the settings menu.”
