If you've been anticipating the release of our latest game Fear Equation on Steam or GOG, your chance to venture into the fog is here! The game is now out on both sites and to celebrate, we're having a 25% off sale for a limited time.

Fear Equation is a genre-spanning horror strategy title where no two games are the same. The world is covered in a mysterious fog. Most who enter the fog disappear, and those who survive say it brings their nightmares to life.

You are The Engineer and you're in control of a very special train. Will you rescue survivors and keep them safe from their nightmares? Can you lead them to salvation?

There's only one way to find out...

Hello folks! We're happy to announce our next game, Fear Equation. It’s due out this year -- we're aiming for October.

It’s a horror strategy game -- part-real time, part-turn-based -- where your job is to guide 150 passengers through a fog that brings their nightmares to life. Keep things under control though, because if you mess up, the fog will be the least of your worries.

If you've played Zafehouse Diaries and Deadnaut, you'll know what you’re in for. Check out the teaser site here. We'll be announcing more details shortly.

Good news! The full version of Deadnaut, the second game from Screwfly Studios, is now available for purchase directly from us.

If you buy it direct, you'll get a DRM-free download and we'll also send you a Steam key when we launch there.

The game is currently available for Windows and Mac OS X users; purchasing the game gives you access to both versions.

If you have any suggestions, bug reports or would simply like to share your experiences, please visit our official forums. Otherwise, good luck exploring... and surviving!


Hey everyone! We've just announced our next game, Deadnaut! Due out in October for Windows, Mac and Linux, Deadnaut is a game set in a future where humanity finally makes it to the stars, only to discover it's the only civilisation left. Everyone else was wiped out long ago and it's up to you and your team of five guns-for-hire to figure out what happened.

Along with a refined and improved relationship system, like that seen in Zafehouse, Deadnaut introduces the concept of stability, where the mental state of your characters requires monitoring as they delve into increasingly more terrifying and disturbing mysteries. If a character doesn't like confined spaces, they'll react negatively if left in a small corridor, while someone unsettled by death will have a hard time moving through a derelict starship full of corpses.

For each mystery, you'll need to explore the husks of long-dead shuttles, freighters and other craft, reading procedurally-generated crew logs, fighting (or hiding) from aggressive aliens -- mutants, experiments-gone-wrong and even Lovecraft-inspired horrors -- and hacking consoles while evading Watchers, the emotionless AIs that protect most ships.

Of course, you'll be able to create your own Deadnauts, importing pictures of friends, crafting their back-stories and defining their relationships with other crew members. If you just want to jump in and play, the game will generate a batch of capable, yet challenging miscreants for you to deal with.

If you'd like to see more screenshots, be sure to head over to the teaser site and if you have any questions or comments, hit up the Deadnaut section on our forums. For news and updates, follow us on Twitter!
