A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Keep Your Sanity is a 2D horror-shooter where you need to look out for you flashlight battery level and… your sanity. Nothing is real, everything is merely a projection of your mind. But it doesn’t feel like something made up. Guilt is taking over you, bringing hallucinations. Will they be too real to bear?

Your sanity is what keeps you alive. If you experience too many disturbing things – you die. You lose your sanity constantly, more if your torch light is dim. Every weird sound, every haunt that touches you, or personification of your guilt may lower your sanity. And the less sanity, the more strange things happen… Restore your sanity by standing next to candles. You need it.

Be on the lookout of chests. They contain weapons, and batteries for your torch essential to lighten up endless darkness. If it runs out of power – you last resort are matches.

Use weapons you find, swap weapon with 1,2 and 3 keys. If you can’t find one then well… you always got a hammer.

Gather keys to open doors, and maybe you can keep your sanity to the end.
