SABORUS: A Gripping Tale of Survival in a Brutal Slaughterhouse

In a gaming landscape often dominated by heroic protagonists and epic battles, SABORUS offers a radically different experience. Developed by independent creator Jean Lima and his High Room Game Studio, this suspenseful horror game places players in the vulnerable role of a chicken desperately trying to escape the clutches of an industrial slaughterhouse. Originally conceptualized from a place of personal loss and reflection, SABORUS has garnered attention for its unique premise and immersive gameplay.

The inception of SABORUS stems from Jean Lima’s own experience of losing a beloved pet chicken. Inspired by this event, Lima began to contemplate the harrowing fate that animals raised for human consumption face daily. This introspection led to the creation of SABORUS, a game that seeks to shed light on the dark realities of industrial farming and slaughterhouses.

Recognizing the potential and creativity behind SABORUS, Brazilian independent publisher and studio QUByte Interactive joined forces with Jean Lima and High Room Game Studio to bring the game to a wider audience. With plans for a multi-platform release on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Nintendo Switch, SABORUS is poised to make a significant impact in the gaming community.

In SABORUS, players assume the role of a helpless chicken trapped within the confines of a slaughterhouse operated by the formidable food industry giant, Saborus. Stripped of any special abilities or weaponry, players must navigate through treacherous environments fraught with danger. Utilizing puzzle-solving skills and the limited use of objects, players must outmaneuver slaughterhouse workers and evade terrifying genetic experiments unleashed by the food company. Survival becomes the ultimate objective in a setting characterized by oppression and fear.


At the OTK Games Expo event, SABORUS has been selected in the horror category, reflecting its unique and compelling narrative. Players will have the opportunity to experience an exclusive demo of the game on June 4 and 5, offering a tantalizing glimpse into the world of SABORUS.

As SABORUS enters the final stages of development, including quality testing and porting for console platforms, anticipation continues to build among gaming enthusiasts. While an official release date is yet to be announced for PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, and Nintendo Switch, the imminent unveiling of the demo at the OTK Games Expo event marks an exciting milestone for this innovative indie title. The free demo is currently live and you can head over to the game’s official Steam page either try out the demo or add it to your wishlist if you want to play it later.
