A downloadable game for Windows

“TAPE” is a psychological horror game for PS4 and PC with time puzzle mechanics and deep narrative, in which you’ll have to help Iria discover the location of her father who disappeared years ago.

Using and old Super8 camera, Iria will be able to affect the time of the objects around her, exploring her deepest memories while resolving puzzles and escaping from the nightmares that dwell in her past.

About the game

Born as our Master's Degree Project, TAPE it's a demo version presented as contestant for the PlayStation Talents 2017 and winner of the Most Innovative Game at the PlayStation Awards Spain 2017.

Inspired by games as SOMA or Silent Hill, TAPE wants to make you think, to be suspicious of everything and above all, tell you a story.

We hope you enjoy it!

The folks from @BlackChiliGoat.

About Controls

Since this project was designed for PlayStation 4, we recommend to play it with a PS Controller or similar. 

If you're playing with Keyboard and Mouse, the controls are as follows:

  • WASD - Movement
  • Left Control - Crouch
  • Left Shift - Run (You'll make noise!)
  • E - Interact
  • Q - Equip/Unequip Camera (Once you obtain it)
  • With the Camera Equipped
    • Left Click - Rewind Story Items
    • Right Click - Forward Story Items
    • Left Click + Right Click - Pause Story Items
  • Esc - Menu

Tips

  • Iria's camera can start affecting objects if they're inside the Focus (the white circle in the middle). To keep affecting them you'll need to keep them inside the screen.
  • An object affected by the camera can't pass through other objects or Iria herself.
  • Some objects will try to go back to their initial condition, unless you Rewind or Forward them completely. Also, you can Pause them.
  • Iria's camera can be used to defend yourself.

This project it's still on an Alpha stage and, since we are working on it, we'll love to see your gameplays and read your feedback. Also, the story it's presented in a vague way, and we'll develop it further in the future, but we'll love to hear your opinion about it.

Sorry for the bugs and thanks for your time!

The folks from @BlackChiliGoat.

Gave it a go...

I enjoyed playing your game!!!

Great to see all the work that's gone into this! It was a little hard for me to judge the atmosphere due to having played the older versions, but the visuals look great! The addition of having to take time from other objects to give to others is a great addition as well. But it does seem like there's been a good chunk of content cut. Keep up the great work!

(+1)

Hello again CoalFire! Thanks for playing the new demo and thanks for all the feedback and good wishes.

We re currently working on the final version, and we aim to get the game out before 2020. Glad you like the stealing time feature, and sorry about the length of the demo. All the content from the previous one it's still in the game, but with a different distribution, so didn't fit well this time.

We'll let you know once we have the final release. Thanks again and congrats on the channel.

The file shows up as .rar and it doesn't allow me to play. Anyone who can help?

(1 edit)

Our bad! The file was uploaded on .rar, but 

now its on .zip, so you can extract the folders with the files and play like usually.

Thanks for playing our first demo! Hope you like the new one!

(+1)

After playing the last demo we can say that this looks better and better, keep going! 👏

(+1)

Thanks! We'll do! 💪

(+1)

I gave your new demo a try and I'm still looking forward to the full version.

Thanks for playing our game again! And thanks for the video. It's really interesting to have the feedback from people who played the first one and be able to see the gameplay with your impressions. 

We got a bit delayed the last year, but we are planning on having a full version by the end of 2019.  We'll let you know once we are close to releasing!

Thanks for the feedback and sorry for the waiting!

Man I loved this mechanic. One of my Lovely lords suggested this game to me and now I can't wait for the finished product. I do Hope you are still working on it.

one thing to note, Whenever the "spirit" thing was on screen I had some recording lag, Just something that may need some optimization
(+1)

Hey LordofNope, say thanks to the lord that recommended us to you! And thanks for playing the demo :)

We're working a lot on a new demo that we will release soon and on releasing the complete game at the end of this year, so please keep tuned at our Twitter for the latest news! 

And yes, our first monter had strong optimization problems due to the many particles it has! But now we have a brand new monster that we expect it will be worth the waiting :)

(+1)

Weird, I thought I had already commented directly on this page but I didn't lol I already sent you my praise on this game and its mechanics back when I played it so just posting this here to say again that you guys did a really great job and deserved the award. Good luck with everything in the new year!

Thank you very much for the compliments and for playing our demo :)! We're glad you enjoyed it ^^

We are working hard to release it at the end of this year so keep tuned and follow us on Twitter for the latest news! 

Gave this a run through on my Twitch stream. Good work building the mood and environment, it's so easy to do that poorly. And sorry I'm so American that I misinterpreted the accent!

Great! We have just listened to your podcast but we didn't know that you had made a playthrough too! Thanks a lot!

No worries about the accent, finally we've solved it setting the game in the 80's in Spain. We will have spanish voice acting (but completelly subbed in english, ofc)


Best regards and thanks for the support :)

Really excited for the full game! Switching the doors in the projector room was my favorite part, because it changed my idea of how the camera worked.

Thanks a lot for playing and enjoying TAPE :)! We are improving that part to be even more mindblowing, we hope the complete version of the game will meet exppectations... we are working hard in order to achieve it!

If you want to know more about the development process, please follow us on Twitter (@blackchiligoat) ^^!

¡Saludos from Spain!

This game was alot of fun I enjoyed recording it hopefully it will become a full game soon. it felt like P.T/silent hill which I loved. I don't know about SOMA I'v not played it...... yet but will be soon 😉

This is my playthrough:

We really recommend you SOMA, is a narrative horror experience with a really interesting story, that's why we love it! Thanks for the gameplay!

(+1)

You guys sincerly have something good going on here. I hope this becomes a full game one day and I would genueinly pay money to buy it.

(+1)

Wow! Thanks a lot for the compliments, they encourage us a lot! 

We are working hard on bringing TAPE to PS4 and Steam as soon as it is possible, so we hope the final game will like to you all!

Best regards!

This game was really cool! I liked that it used atmosphere more than jump scares and monsters. Also the mechanics worked really well. Great work :D

Yeah, we want to focus on atmosphere like the good old games like Silent Hill! We'll try to follow that mentality the whole game ^^.


Thanks for the awesome gameplay!

Me ha encantado el juego, va a seguir o eso es todo?

Hay más, ¡hay mucho más! Estamos trabajando sin parar para poder sacar el juego completo durante el primer semestre de 2019. Si quieres ir viendo como avanza el desarrollo, ponemos actualizaciones en Twitter y Facebook :)

for some reason it never changed?

Because you should face your past instead of looking for the future...


 (aka. turn back until you see a wall)

Had a great time! Love to see more.

Hi Devy_Games, thanks a lot for the gameplay! We will love to bring you more from the game! Thanks a lot for the support :)

Any chance for a Mac release? Or will it go up on PS4?

Heya! We are planning to release it on Steam as well during 2019, by now (and since none of us owns a Mac :/) will be only released on Windows but in case we can finally develop it for Mac we will announce it for sure! 


Thanks for your interest :)

(+1)

do you guys have an update page I could follow? Any news on when the next piece of this will be out? :)

Heya Angelique! Actually we try to keep updated our Twitter account (@BlackChiliGoat), we're working really hard these months so we can release TAPE asap and we are looking forward to show you people more content, but for now we have nothing worth to show but we can asure that the project is in process. Thanks for the patience :D!

Not that much scary no Jump scares but the game is good.

Yep, we are working on making it more scary! More "SilentHillesque" style rather than abusing of jumpscares. Thanks for the video :D

(+1)

This idea is really good! Gonna wait for more story :)

Thank you very much for the video! We're glad you enjoyed it :) Soon you will have news from #TAPE, follow us on Social networks :D!

I posted this video a while ago but for anyone who finds it interesting and wants a taste before playing can check out my video, I highly recommend playing it and supporting BlackChiliGoat Studio!! Can't wait for the full game!!

Heya TheCrimsomGod! We already answered you in Youtube, but anyway, thank you for the gameplay :D! We are working a lot to bring the game asap! Keep in touch :D

pretty neat concept

rated 4 *'s

Thanks for your support! We are now developing a full game. Stay tuned!

Oh sure, explain where to put the focusing thing in the description without also saying it in the game. That's helpful, considering I always forget to look at the description before starting a game.

But sarcasm aside, I actually did enjoy this game once I figured everything out. I decided to follow you in case of further updates.

Hahahaha it's one of the things we will improve for the next demo, it's a learning proces :D! Thanks for the follow and the gameplay, cheers :D!

(+1)

Looks like a cool game! if you need music or sound fx for the game I'd be glad to help :)

Thank you for the compliment and the offer but our team is currently complete! If we eventually need more people we will contact you! Cheers :D

no problem! if you need someone just ask :D

It was interesting and very enjoyable, would love to see more!

Thank you for playing our demo and for the compliment we will work hard to bring you the complete game asap! Cheers and saludos!

(+1)

We expect to release it at the end of this year, we will work hard! Thanks for the demo Zeo!

¡Saludos!

This was a super unique approach on a horror game. It felt a lot like Layers of Fear. I kinda wanna go back in and do even more investigation now. That ending definitely left me wanting more. (Sorry for all the edits, I couldn't get the embed to come up to save my life!)

Hahaha it's a honor to remind of Layers of Fear, we love the atmosphere of that game! But we will work hard to make our own way! 

Thanks for this cool gameplay :D

¡Saludos!

Well will say this game enjoyable, Can't wait till what next.

Cheers and thanks for playing TAPE :D
