POWER DRILL MASSACRE

DOWNLOAD HERE


Power Drill Massacre box art




Injured after a car crash, Megan flees through the woods into an abandoned building, looking for help. The door jams and shes locked inside, forced to search through the dark corridors. She hears the echo of a power drill in the distance and realizes she's not alone. Power Drill Massacre is a tribute to PS1 survival horror and the VHS format. From the creator of BABYSITTER BLOODBATH!



NOTE: The current version (which you may have seen on Youtube) is an early demo I released to get feedback on the gameplay. It is not the final version of the game.

Wow, It's been almost 2 years since I released the demo. Time flies.

I think I went a little crazy with the graphics update stuff. The game should really stick to it's roots and original gameplay. While I've called PDM a demo, it is a full (but flawed) game.

So what are my plans moving forward?

Stick with the original graphics

Fix the controls

Improve and fix the AI

Add another area or two to the building


So in summery, the final version of the game will be very close to the demo with improved gameplay and some extra content


Will there be a sequel?

It's possible someday but I'm kind of sick of PDM right now. The updated graphics and mechanics I was using for PDM will make their way into future games.


Why is the killer in PDM so cheap?

I'm going to make some changes to the AI in the full version. But there actually was some thought put into the Driller Killer's current attack pattern.

Most killers rely on the element of surprise and ambush you when the moment is right. How many of Jason's victims actually stood a chance? Youtu.be

The killer in power drill massacre isn't exactly fair but neither is life. Especially if you're the victim of a homicide.

Being hit with a power tool would mostly likely be a shock to somebodies body, making vision difficult. The limited visibility in the game reflects the confusion, fear and panic.



When will the full version be released?

I wish I could tell you but I don't know. I tend to be extremely disorganized, especially when it comes to dates so it's almost impossible for me to estimate. Sometimes I think something will be finished in a week or a month and it takes years. I honestly have no idea until the day it's actually released.

Unfortunately the source code of PDM is a complete mess, which complicates things a little bit. I basically have to recode the game to make any updates. It could take me a while to work up the nerve, but I'll get to it eventually


I still have plans for a VHS drive release

I couldn't be happier with Unity 5. Amazing that these features cost $1500 two weeks ago. So here's what I'm working on.

The Power Drill Massacre is inspired by PlayStation 1 survival horror games (Clock Tower, Resident Evil, Silent Hill) and 80s slasher films. You solve...

I really hope to get a Puppetcombo's special for Halloween. It feels like waiting for the Midnight Horror TV special back at the ol'days.

I would love to get my hands on those VHS & PSX shaders! — The ones you did before your upgrade. Also please don't upgrade the graphics just because. I enjoyed the style and low-poly models in the demo. Part of it was the nostalgic feeling, otherwise it could potentially just end up like any other horror game on the market.

Hi. I was just using the standard shader for the demo. Unity 4 had a lot of limitations (no image effects) so the vhs effects were just still images overlaid in front of the camera.

This is amazing! Thank you for this, PlayStation 1 graphics and VHS effects are literally my favorite things in this creative world of ours. It's a match made in heaven for me. :)
