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.

Hey, I've included your game in my latest video! Skip to 11:39 to see me play your game! Cheers!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VjA9f-DlwfI Just played the apha demo for your game in my 3 random horror games in one video. It's the last game in the video and I loved this a lot, I really liked the concept and the design and having the player being on edge from the atmosphere was a nice touch instead of jumpscares so I appreciated that a lot! :D 

Hi. I just played the alpha demo and enjoyed  it as an survival horror simulation veteran very much. The game said that I should update the drivers, nvidia 9800gt. So the game crashed one time, but I finished it twice. And were there some strange yellow light anamolies in the big hospital room. So, because of personel experiences I have a theory to the story.  At the end of the Let's Play did I say "preceding something ", but I meant "processing something".  The concept is really interessting and I want to play the whole game to know what's it all about.

I Love this. maybe i put this on my site https://behsazanhost.com to run it with my friends.

Played this as part of a 4 free indie horrors, and i feel it's a bit of a downgrade from the last demo. Although the game looks and plays nicer now. There significantly less to do in this demo and it's very disappointing. I did a video on the last demo as well. I give a bit more in-depth review in my video below.

Hello UnsealedWings! Thanks for playing the new demo, and thanks for the feedback. We're sorry about the length of the demo, we wanted to show a few improvements in the overall feel of the game instead of the old one more focus on puzzle gameplay. We'll let you know once we publish the final game. Keep tuned!

I super enjoyed playing this game! The build up of noises/spooks to then make you think what is even going on got me so on edge! I'm really looking forward to the complete version of this game. The camera mechanic is such a cool element too! I recorded a video on your game, if you're interested feel free to check it out :)

Hello I just wanted to to say that I really enjoyed playing this game and can't wait until it's finished! Also I I made video so I hope you enjoy my video!

Thank you for sharing your video. It was a nice feedback :)

I really enjoyed this demo!

The mechanic is very solid and I can see it being used to great potential, the cut scenes were well acted (I think, I don't speak Spanish), one thing I was really impressed by was how smooth and good looking the hand animations  were when the character examines something.

So all in all a very good demo, I would be interested to see where you take it.

(also, I found the Silent Hill 2 nod when examining guitar, if there's one song to be influenced by, that's a damn good one!)

Here's my video for anyone interested:

Thank you for playing the game! It's impressive you got the Theme of Laura reference with only 3 chords... Glad you like the game and thanks for the video and the feedback! Keep it up! We'll anounce the release date this year, we planned on releasing before 2020.

Thanks for playing our game! And for the video!

We are hoping on a full release before 2020. Stay tuned! https://twitter.com/BlackChiliGoat

What a great and horrifying experience! Really interesting mechanic involving the camera and I'm really looking forward to seeing how it'll play out more in future updates! This was the 2nd game I played in my video on 3 horror games (8:44 for the start of the game).

This game got loads of potential, nice scary atmosphere, was only disappointing that there no real scares in it, but since it's a demo I'll remain very hopeful since the game was really enjoyable to play. Will await the full game :)

Thanks for playing our game! And for your kind words! We are looking for a more psychological approach to terror, but in the final version there will be a little more tension and scares. Thank you and keep tuned!

This game isn't scary in the demo but it is really fun game to play. The demo is so good and less scary. I think that in the full game it will be more scary than this. Nice game! 

We are looking for a more SilentHill-esque approach of the fear, less jumpscares and more unsettling atmosphere. But sure you will have the chills when you play the full version :D

Una pregunta, la nueva demo AlphaDemo.rar901 MB

 4 days ago és la misma que esta 

TAPE_AlphaDemov1.2.zip850 MB ??

porque no hay manera de descargarla.

Bueno, ya te lo contestamos en Twitter, pero problema solucionado. La última versión con alguna corrección de errores es la 1.3 :)

Gracias ;)

Gave it a go...

Hi Step Vibes! Thanks for playing our demo! Sorry about the length! We will release the full game before 2020. We'll let you know once it's out! Cheers!

(+1)

I enjoyed playing your game!!!

Thanks for playing the new demo ☺

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!
