Platform 8

Game description:

Platform 8, a sequel to The Exit 8, thrusts players into a hauntingly perpetual journey aboard a train that never stops. In this short, atmospheric walking simulator, players are tasked with finding a way out of an endless loop, navigating through the compartments of a train inspired by the minimalist yet disquieting aesthetics of Japanese subways and liminal spaces. As players explore the seemingly infinite cars, they must stay vigilant for subtle anomalies that hint at methods to disrupt the cycle and possibly escape. The game’s design leverages sparse lighting and sparse soundscapes to enhance the sense of isolation and tension, turning an ordinary train journey into a suspenseful exploration.

As the train continues its relentless journey, players find themselves deeper in the game’s lore, uncovering fragments of stories and events that led to the current predicament. With a playtime ranging from 15 to 60 minutes, Platform 8 offers a compact yet rich experience, designed to captivate players with its unique setting and compelling narrative loop.
