Project TERMINUS is a survival horror VR FPS in the mighty city of Paris, taking inspiration from the Half-Life, Bioshock and Alien Isolation games. It is playable in VR and on pancake (desktop).

(oculus Quest version : Sdq.st)

(PC version : Store.steampowered.com )

Port de l'arsenal during the beginning of the attack


Paris, 2021. You are in the subway, commuting to your home. You watch the city from the window of the train, the weather is clear and you can see a beautiful sunset reflecting on the Seine.

The apparent calm hides a deadly threat. Soon your train suddenly stops, the power shuts down and the panic takes over the city. You receive a message from your scared little brother elsewhere in the city and the network dies too.

Trying to get out of the now dark and gloomy subway station of Bastille, you discover a creepy cloud floating in the corridors. It is composed of million of miscroscopical particles, moving in a swarm.

Nanite swarm floating in the subway station Bastille

You just met the deadly nanites. They are everywhere, the city is descending into chaos, the army is placing checkpoints, and destroys bridges to stop the attack. None of its action seems effective.

The day the nanites are dormant and use solar energy to get power. The night, people and animals are eaten alive by the swarm.

Will you survive ? Will you find your brother ? Will the humanity be able to overcome this threat ?


In VR 6dof you will be able to grab objects, open doors, hit enemies with your own hands and live the fall of Paris in the most immersive way. We take the most of the 6dof controllers given by the Oculus and Vive gear to make you live the game.

The game will have multiple type of gameplay sequences :

- Shooting sequences : people eaten by the swarm are aggressive as their nervous is the first target. They are little by little under control of the nanites before being fully consumed and abandonned partially decomposed.

- Puzzle sequences : in the collapsed subway you often will have to use in the best way possible every object you have at your disposal in order to go forward.

- Dicussion sequences : When meeting characters in the game you will have the ability to discuss with them. The discussions will have multiple choices and can end in several ways. Say the right words and the character will give you items or informations. Say the wrong words and anything can happen.

Lore elements

The centers of many cities on the planet are the scene of deadly confrontations between populations and assimilated, in a world very similar to ours at the beginning of the attacks. The story will take place mainly in the city of Paris.

The city will gradually become a large quarantine area where the only livings are survivors, assimilated and military forces.

The enemies of Project TERMINUS come from a combination of robotics and biology. They have been contaminated by swarms composed of billions of nanites that will take control of their host by replacing the functions exercised by the brain of the individual, which kills him.

These swarms are a constant threat in the quarantine areas seeking to infect as many livings as possible. The origin of these nanites is unknown even though several theories are advanced by many people.


The game is aimed to be released in VR (HTC Vive, Oculus Rift / Rift S, Oculus Quest) and desktop.
