WHAT IS HIBERNACULUM?
  • Hibernaculum is a retro inspired dungeon crawler that sets out to recreate the engrossing labyrinthine experiences of the classics of days gone by, whilst also building a modern, deeply unique & explorable world of survival, mystery and macabre intrigue.
  • Hibernaculum is a first person sci-fi/horror role playing game with survival horror roots.
  • Create a unique character to explore the depths of Hibernaculum & have the experience you want to have. Choices only matter, if they matter to you.
  • Non-linear gameplay allows for exploration at your own pace, and in your own fashion. Forge ahead and risk calamity or riches. Conversely, pace yourself and avoid harm.
  • Navigate a decayed industrial realm through environmental storytelling and a unique, brooding atmosphere.
  • Hibernaculum will be developed in C++ for PC (Windows) & Mac with hopes for porting to iOS & Nintendo Switch.
  • Hibernaculum will initially be available in English, French, German & Spanish.
  • Hibernaculum will be released DRM-free & available on Steam & GoG.
Hibernaculum has a sharp focus on exploration and atmosphere with a penchant for allowing the player to discover, uncover, salvage and piece together the mysteries of the Ship whilst emphasising mechanics that allow for emergent gameplay amidst the matrices of survival, combat and character progression.

With a raft of modern conveniences such as an on-screen minimap + waypoints, more aesthetic and navigable maps + hub areas, a more concise and efficient stat/combat system as well as many other UI and quality of life features we hope to make Hibernaculum the most playable, expansive, intriguing and absorbing game of it's type since the heyday of these games; the long forgotten primeval epoch of 1995.​

All I see are graphics yet so far there’s been no mention about game mechanics in any way that I know of.

Come on man, what else do you want? It's the "PST - Fallout - Captive - Lands of Lore - BDrebirth - 40K - Anvil of Dawn - Black Crypt - Waxworks - Elvira - Stonekeep - Dungeon Hack - The Legacy - Silent Hill - Darkwood" game you've been asking for.

  • looks cool good art
  • music sucks get someone else to make the music
  • sound effects, however, are very good
  • really a game like this should take 6 months to make not 4 years

Game looks good, but movement could be a lot smoother... I wasn't clear from the video whether combat is real time?
This.
I hate the "dancing around enemies" mechanics many real-time games of this type have. If combat is RT the authors can probably forget my money.
Otherwise somewhat interested. Great graphic style and SF/horror is a nice change of pace from most dungeon crawlers.

It reminds me a lot of Primordia, also on Steam : colors, visuals, aesthetic.
Seems interesting, at least worth keeping an eye on.

"emergent" gameplay by salvaging trash and avoiding harm, every description oozes poserium.

I believe it's a first-person blobber with a focus on ranged combat with adventure-style puzzles and the odd choice where you can do something risky to get something valuable. At least, that's the impression I've gotten from following it along since Viktor started posting about it here.

It's a solo dungeon crawler not a blobber - "Create a unique character"
Secondly, there's nowhere any mention about puzzles, just fancy words about immersium and fabulously optimistic shit. Even if the puzzles exist, why should one trust the poser? Primordia "their masterpiece", was a very easy short and limited game overall.

We're talking about a game that was pitched here 2 years ago and even you that you're following it, can't say for sure what to expect.
Compare this to Mystic Land: The Search for Maphaldo for example, a game pitched a few months ago, and we already know what the game is about, the dev is a humble, non-poser dude posting constantly informative and crystal clear stuff without over-promising shit.

MRY what's your take on the opening "From the creator of Primordia." in the trailer?
