Description

INFRA is an atmospheric and completely non-violent first-person puzzle adventure that deals with the issues of deteriorating infrastructure. The player controls an ordinary structural analyst through abandoned factories, forgotten tunnels and unsafe buildings in a dangerous, crumbling industrial city and its surrounding rural areas. Along the way, the player will be taking photos of structural weaknesses, solving environmental puzzles and unraveling a thought-provoking story centered around corruption and deception.

History

Although the company was founded in 2013, the development of our first game INFRA started two years earlier as a Source Engine mod project. The scope of the project eventually grew large enough to become a fully fledged standalone title. This became even more evident after getting Greenlit by the Steam community with over 45,000 positive votes, peaking at top 4. The success on Steam Greenlight prompted us to found the company and start looking for investors to fund the game. By 2015, we had managed to raise some money from investors, but not enough to finish the entire game. This lead to us running a fundraising campaign on Indiegogo. While we did manage to raise some money, we failed to reach the campaign goal. As a result of this, we decided to split the game into multiple parts. We did just that, and INFRA: Part 1 was released on Steam on January 15th 2016. INFRA: Part 2 was released on Steam as a free update on September 24th 2016. We're currently working on the final part – INFRA: Part 3, which too will be released as a free update.
