When it comes to interesting games to play, Skobbejak Games wanted to ensure that Vapour wasnt just a great horror experience but a fun and great game altogether. Vapour: Part 1 is available for purchase now on Steam you can also read more info about Vapour and its history below.
Vapour is an experimental horror game, that fuses elements of both old school and modern horror titles with the frantic game play of classic First Person Shooter titles. Blending horror, shooter, action, puzzle and platformer in a dynamic yet cohesive combination.
In Vapour you take on the role of a psychotic warlock known only as "Charles", who has been held captive and brutally tortured his entire life by a sadistic cult. After being executed for his crimes, Charles used his last ounce of strength to avoid total damnation.
Now, trapped between the borders of Purgatory and Hell and with his powers diminished, Charles must battle through hordes of demons, face his haunting past and ultimately make it back to earth to exact his revenge on those who have wronged him.
Vapour started out as a free prototype game that was released on 2 August 2013. The prototype game contained a very primitive version of the game mechanics and structure that we envisioned for Vapour, but it allowed us to get valuable feedback in moulding Vapour in what we wanted it to become. The prototype did not contain any puzzles yet, the objectives and pacing were still very basic and exploration was simple, with the player only following lights shining through the fog. Yet the game resonated with many gamers, so we set out to start on a full version of Vapour, with development starting in January 2014.
-Non-linear level design
-Plenty of exploration
-One gory and twisted plot
