Infernium is an adventure horror game where you need to carefully consider your strategy to progress through the non-linear interlocking chapters. Exploring the world, avoiding getting caught by the ethereal enemies and solving puzzles uncovers a story about a group of friends.

It's a hard game, die 25 times without replenishing the orbs and your game is over. Also, you have to find your own way through it. Because you don't have to progress in any particular way, each time you play the game is different. The amount of the narrative you encounter will also be different each time.

Along with the puzzles you have enemies that chase and kill you, resetting your progress. Identifying a way to use stealth to get past these enemies is a core part of the experience. To do this you have six easy to use, hard to master player skills and must learn strategies to overcome each type of enemy.
