Animal Kingdom is a small indie game company that is currently developing their first game, Comatose.

Comatose is an adventure horror game that explores the dreams, nightmares and realities of a troubled man with a dark past. After a terrible car accident you are put into a coma and forced to explore an evil and mysterious mind to build back your sanity piece by piece. With 100’s of different dream and nightmare sequences that can happen at any random time the experience is different every time you play. Promised to drag you into the emotional and deep story as well as the terrifying insanity of your worst nightmares.

Animal Kingdom want Comatose to be a game that you will be wanting to keep coming back to for more. To ensure this, no two playthroughs will be the same. The nightmares and dreams that you trigger will be randomly spawned each new game. With no warning on what kind of nightmare you have triggered, you will need to be able to take in your surrounding immediately to prepare for whatever happens next.

Check out the Pre-Alpha trailer below and see why Comatose will make sure you sleep with the nightlight on!

Wormholes:
In order the activate nightmares and dreams, you must first find the wormholes that trigger them. These are randomly spawned in the environment, with a few key dreams activated by picking up objects. These nightmares are random, so you never know what situation you are getting into. Many start in the middle of scenarios, making you stay on the edge of your seat. Comatose will deliver an emotionally jarring experience, which will have you crying tears of joy, and of terror, in the span of minutes.

Combat In Comatose:
You are not some jacked up, steroid filled super human. You are just a broken man, driven insane inside his own mind. In order to survive you must use wit and what you can find in the environment. You won’t be finding guns in every drawer, so be prepared to think outside the box! Every nightmare has a solution, each monster has a weakness, every door has a key. Its up to you to crawl back into reality.
