Cloacaphobia – Downloadable Game

Cloacaphobia is a tense and atmospheric VHS styled found footage horror game where you attempt to escape from a cryptid-filled sewer system.

Created by Azaxor (creator of the similarly themed TRAPT and Crawlerphobia, Cloacaphobia is a first person horror game that puts you in the shoes of a cryptid hunter who has bitten off a little more than they can chew after falling down a hole into the flooded tunnels of a sewer system. It now looks like you’ll have no problem at all in finding and recording footage of cryptids, the real problem is when the cryptids find you!

Thankfully you’re not the only human down in the sewers, there’s actually a sewer worker who may help you escape, but first you’ll have to do him a few favors. This involves running through the sewer tunnels, avoiding cryptids and operating valves. It’s a tough job and the labyrinthine tunnel system means it’s easy to get lost, but with a little luck you may make it out alive.

Cloacaphobia does still have some of the frustrations of Azaxor’s previous games (buggy monster AI and no save points), but it’s still a very freaky little horror game. It can be easy to get lost in the tunnel system initially, but after a few tries you get a feel for the layout and can get from point to point fairly easily (as long as you don’t run into any cryptids anyway).

There’s a nice selection of different cryptids to deal with and there are two different endings to discover based on your decisions. The environmental design is excellent and the sewers really are a horrible place to be trapped in – those cryptid hunters will never learn though!
