Fleshgait is a hybrid survival horror experience. Play the game with fixed camera angles panning cameras, or at any time, switch into a 3rd person over the shoulder perspective.

Explore, solve puzzles, and conserve resources.

Puzzle and item placement vary on each playthrough.

Realtime menu-less inventory for maximum immersion.

Traditional dynamic camera system switches between static cameras and panning cinematic cameras. At anytime players can switch into a 3rd person

over the shoulder perspective.

Fire weapons must be used to fully defeat "The Stigmatized".

Flammable boards and furniture block your path. They can be destroyed with your weapons, but to converse your resources it is much wiser to use fire.

Multiple endings.

Dynamic jump scare systems.

Eight unique enemy types.

Unlockable modes, weapons and costumes.
