POWER DRILL MASSACRE (demo)

Itch.io Page

Support development of the full game & get early access to my new games


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.

Update 4

News

I just started a patreon to help finish the game. If you guys are interested in contributing.

As I said in my last update, the full version won't be a totally new game, just expanded:

A new ending
New areas
Character selection - play as Megan or Jeff
Improved controls
Full gamepad support - xbox, ps3/4, whatever
First Person Mode
AI improvements and balancing
Hopefully console support (I'll try to get it on there)
Regular updates and improvements

As I've said in the past, I had almost no idea what I was doing when I made the PDM demo. The code is pretty much cobbled together, so I have to recode large sections of the game to update and complete it. On the plus side, it'll run way better when it's updated.

I'll be posting regular updates and videos of progress on patreon. You can also try my 3rd game Meat Cleaver Mutilator months before it's on youtube

Available soon for $5+ patrons

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.

This is hands down the scariest game I have ever played. Thank you PuppetCombo for doing an amazing job on this, and I'm REALLY looking forward to the full version! It's so weird how the PS1 graphics made games like Silent Hill, Resident Evil 2, etc absolutely terrifying, and I LOVE how this game replicated that! Feel free to check out how far I made it below!

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.
