VERWANDLUNG is a freaky retro styled first person horror adventure that draws inspiration from Franz Kafka’s The Metamorphosis, as a young woman goes to check on her brother, who has gone through quite a change.
Created for the Haunted PS1 Halloween Jam 2022, in VERWANDLUNG you are going to check on your brother, who you haven’t heard from since he moved to the city. When arriving at his house you find all is not well and you are trapped there by a swarm of spiders. You now need to figure out what’s going on and some means of escape before the swarm gets you…
Taking less than 10 minutes to play through, VERWANDLUNG is a very tense and atmospheric experience with some beautiful PS1 inspired visuals (particularly when outside). It would be nice if there was a little more narrative and if there was some way to temporarily shoo the spider swarm out of your way, but considering the time restraints of the jam it’s very impressive and would be great for expanding on in the future.
