Psychological Horror Game Anemoiapolis: Chapter 1 Comes Out Tomorrow

Developed and published by indie developer Andrew Quist, Anemoiapolis: Chapter 1 is a new unique horror game set within the viral ‘liminal spaces’ horror subgenre. Andrew Quist is the solo developer behind this title and his project Anemoiapolis: Chapter 1 invites you to find horror in the familiar and overcome existential dread and if not, get stuck forever in the ever-looping cycle. Sounds too much? The developer also mentions that this is the most relaxing horror game that you will ever play.

To celebrate its release, we have a brand-new launch trailer for Anemoiapolis: Chapter 1 and you can check it out below:

This is because in Anemoiapolis: Chapter 1, you will embark on a journey that has you confused and lost in a sprawling yet unoccupied resort, with a goal to forge your own path to freedom. Anemoiapolis: Chapter 1 exudes mind-numbing dread and scenarios which weaponize a vast network of mundane rooms and facilities. The game exists in the uncanny valley of American architecture which features endless carpeted floors and lonely malls. You will need to escape with your life while enjoying the beautiful scenery.

As Andrew details, Anemoiapolis: Chapter 1 takes inspiration from his Michigan hometown as it dives deep into the concept of ‘liminal spaces’. The game is a personal interpretation of the concept, offering unique sequences and scenery that set it apart from like-minded titles.  Key features of the game include:

  • Explore Procedural Labyrinths: This game is designed from the ground up to make you lost and confused. If you feel like you’re going in circles, then you’re on the right track.
  • Wander a Vast Network of Mundane Horrors: Anemoiapolis finds horror in the familiar — places so ordinary that they cause discomfort and a dose of existential dread.
  • Put Your Mind To The Test: With nobody around to let you out, you’ll have to forge your own path to the exit. Push obstacles and smash windows — whatever it takes to get to the next room.
  • Navigate Dynamic Environments, However You Can: Don’t count on that door being there the next time you swing around. Things aren’t always as they appear.
  • Music Made To Chill: A soundtrack created by JORDANN and 4REST adds to the mysterious atmosphere players will feel throughout.
