PARANOIHELL takes inspira̴t̷i̵o̷n̷ ̸from the̷ ̷g̴a̶m̷eplay of late 90's and early 00's PSX survival horror games. Use weapons to defend yourself fro̶m̸ ̸enem̷i̵e̶s̴, set traps, run away or h̴i̵d̷e̸. But don't be reckle̴s̸s̵,̴ ̵y̵o̶ur resources are limited. Careful management and thorough exploration will be your key to survival.


What to expect from the final game:

  • A surre̶a̵l dyst̵o̶p̶i̷c̷ city to explore
  • 16-bit mixed media art style that uses modern lighting techniques, and retro-VHS effects
  • Expected total game time: 2-4 hours
  • M̵ultiple ̷e̶ndings
  • Multiple difficulty settings, that change ̸item and enem̵y̶ ̷placem̴e̴n̴t̴
  • U̷n̸lockable ̴g̵a̴m̴e̶ ̷modes and ̴co̷stume̶s̶
  • Controller Support

Hi! I'm lum! I'm a solo game dev from Canada! 

PARANOIHELL is an expression anxiety and a love letter to the survival horror games I never played as a kid... but could only imagine what they were like instead. The world is mysterious, beautiful, and cruel. Be good to each other.
