Static Breach is a fast paced stealth game, where you avoid the eyes of an entity called The Message controlling all of humanity. Levels have a number of control terminals which need to be switched off. Guards patrol the corridors, trying to take you down as soon as they see you. Can you wake up humanity? 


Everyone listens to a voice called The Message. It tells you what to do. Because of a short circuit The Message stops and you find yourself in control of your own thoughts. The only way to help the others following The Message is by switching off the terminals throughout the building. The Message is looking for you however.

Fantastic little game you've got here. The visual style and true feeling of suspense are easily the best parts. While the game is short it doesn't overstay its welcome and the difficulty pairs almost perfectly with the length, since there are no checkpoints. The only things I found at fault were the camera angle to some of the walls making the doors hard to find, and the fact that the camera doesn't lead you. It made moving south on the map really difficult. Looking forward to more from your respective teams!


Thanks for your review! We fixed the camera to lead now. Also we noticed you were a bit confused about the keycards, so now there will be onscreen messages to clarify what you picked up or why you can't open a door.


Oh. They looked like floppy disks to me. Made it through the whole game without realizing they were related. Haha!


I'm pretty sure I didn't get to escape but it's been fun sneaking around. :)
