Caffeine Brings Sci-Fi Horror to Indiegogo Crowdfunding Campaign

Who thought coffee could be so terrifying?

Dylan Browne’s upcoming sci-fi horror game, Caffeine, is set to not only bring powerful stories back to the genre, but to engage players with a unique setting and tone. But Browne’s project needs a little help, which is why today he’s introducing an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to support development.

Caffeine follows a young boy, seemingly all alone on a caffeine mining space station. This station is full of mystery, and the only thing known for sure is that something bad has transpired. Confused and alone, you the player will start to explore this seemingly derelict space station searching for cryptic notes and messages everywhere to learn what has happened and how to escape.

Caffeine is being developed solely by Browne, an avid gamer and designer who wants to bring engaging narratives back to sci-fi horror games.  Caffeine is being developed on the Unreal Engine 4, and takes inspiration from FPS horror games like FEAR, Condemned and Doom 3. Caffeine is in early development and a Caffeine Public Demo has been released to give gamers an idea of what the game will offer when completed.

While Caffeine is Browne’s passion project, he also wants it to have AAA quality and to release in early 2015. Browne is looking for $80,000 for his crowdfunding campaign, which started today and will end in 45 days, on May 14th.
