A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

Artifact is a game made for the Ludum Dare jam #40. The theme was "The more you have, the worse it is." My game is an first person alien survival horror game, where you must hunt down four artifacts (three batteries and a gun) and then kill the aliens, without getting caught. However, the player has limited stamina, and everything he picks up weighs him down, making it harder to survive.


Escape - Pause game. Can return to home screen and quit.
WASD - Move character.
F - Pick up nearby item.
Left Shift - Sprint. Careful though, you have limited stamina
Left click - Turn flashlight on/off. You have limited battery, so conserve it
Right click - Fire blaster. Blaster has no charge on pickup, but the other artifacts provide ammunition.

Also, thanks to Phil Motion Video and Rybro for playing my game! Here are their videos:

(Skip to around 45:08 for my game for the first video. He reviews a lot of games.)

Install instructions

Unzip file and run executable with alien icon. Windows users may need winrar to unzip files.

Note: There are only windows and mac standalone application files. No other platforms are usable, as far as I know. Also, the game runs in fullscreen only, but can be exited at any time. This game is not meant to be improved further, and is only developed for certain systems. I may add more accessibility, but don't expect anything. Finally, the game is a pretty intensive project, so I'm sorry if it's slow.
