The Key is a survival horror game with some physics based puzzle elements. Your only means of survival are to avoid detection, if detected, run for your life, or in some areas you will be presented with an opportunity to lead your blood thirsty pursuers into deadly traps. Your terror starts when a being known as The Keeper traps you in a sewer to have you run through his games and see how long you will survive for his amusement, he promises to let you go if you can find The Key... whatever that is, is unknown. Nobody has ever lived long enough to discover if The Keeper keeps his promises, or if The Key even exists. You will spend the majority of the game in dark caverns, sewers, and brief outdoor moments. Caverns go from claustrophobic tunnels to large open underground vistas lurking with countless unseen horrific creatures.

In other news we've decided if we get enough money ($300) after the essentials, we're going to support Oculus Rift so you can get completely immersed in the dark environment with an amazing virtual reality headset.

Thanks for your interest and support.

It appears that the game doesn't work so well on integrated intel graphics. In our testing there were no real time shadows on intel graphics causing the sun to light the entire inside of the sewer which looks very different and incorrect.

At the moment we have the pro trial. When we have some more done in a week we're going to launch a kickstarter so we can actually buy Unity Pro.
