Since its initial release on PC in 2015, Uncanny Valley has earned acclaim for its effective approach to horror and compelling story.

 

“The game creates a compelling sense of dread, and packs just enough into a relatively small package that multiple plays are essentially required just to find everything that it has to offer” – Twinfinite

 

“Cowardly Creations did an excellent job of leaving this trail of crumbs and giving the player just enough information to make them hungry to solve the mystery” – Indiegames

 

“An effective horror adventure well-worth your time...a sterling effort that stands out from its indie horror contemporaries” –  RPG Fan

About the game

Welcome to Uncanny Valley – an unsettling story-driven survival horror where nothing is as it seems. Explore an isolated facility and solve its many mysteries, but be warned: the choices you make have meaningful consequences that will determine your fate. Play through multiple times to reveal all of Uncanny Valley’s darkest secrets.

You play as Tom, a security guard working the night shift at an abandoned facility in the middle of nowhere. Already troubled by disturbing dreams, Tom’s reality takes a terrifying twist as he explores the eerie offices and corridors of the facility and begins to uncover the shocking secrets hidden within its walls…

Consequence System

Rather than failure always being greeted by death, Uncanny Valley uses a consequence system which imposes lasting effects on the player. For example, a mistake may result in a broken arm, which in-turn presents problems when trying to use a weapon.

This changing dynamic impacts story and gameplay, requires players to rethink their approach to certain situations, and ensures a chilling sense of ever-present uneasiness.

Key Features

  • A huge, creepy facility to explore
  • Ominous and oppressive atmosphere
  • Compelling story with rich characters
  • Multiple endings to discover
