Garage | PAX East 2018

Butch is an ex-drug dealer who’s in an underground parking garage where he accidentally stumbles into a secret underworld filled with monsters and mutants.

From monsters to its environment, Garage has an old-school horror movie vibe. Everything is dark and you can only see what’s in your line of sight. It’s an interesting mechanic that adds suspense, at any moment a zombie can jump out from the depths of darkness to gnaw at your face! In addition to not being able to see everything around my character, I chose to play without sound. Silly me because I’m sure I missed out on plenty of audio cues to warn me of impeding hordes. Case in point, I kicked open a door only to be presented with 30 zombies. They start rushing at me as I run backwards, shooting quickly as possible until I run out of ammo! Swap weapons to an ax, now I find myself in a corner swinging for dear life with only one medkit left. It was exhilarating! Even without sound I felt panicked, I can only imagine what the experience would be like with sound.

Garage’s PAX East demo featured a mini-boss which resembled a Boomer in Left 4 Dead. This mini-boss had me running in circles avoiding its acid spit, unloading tons of ammo into it until it died. Unfortunately that’s where the demo ended. It definitely left me wanting more. And what happens to Butch, does he ever get out of the Garage?
