Will there be an updated version of this game with better controls, different camera angles, etc? The game is still considered early access to my knowledge and I'm wondering when the updates for a full game will be released. 

(+1)

Yes eventually. But I can't predict when it'll be ready.

this game was a lot of fun. i played resident evil 2 remake recently and this game still got me with the scares and tension. really great homage to all medium of horror from the movies and video games.  looking forward to the rest of the games from you guys in the future. here's a video of my wife and i playing the game for one of our segments on the freakin' awesome.

Can the camera perspective change? from 3rd to 1st?

Just wondering, if I buy the "demo disc", will I qualify for the Steam key for Power Drill Massacre?  Are you planning on bringing any of the other games featured to Steam?

I want the demo pls

(+1)

Just wanted to say your guys games are AMAZING. Also,is there an estimate date of when the game will be done?

Do you guys have a plan to port the game into Nintendo Switch? That would be awesome!

who tf are you this was originally released by pig farmer games 

I'm the person who made  the game. I changed the name of the studio to Puppet Combo because Pig Farmer Productions is trademarked and I didn't want to get in trouble for using it

The arcade one is as GLITCHY...

What was the cause of the delay from October?  Love your games btw, perfect for a good unexpected bowel cleansing.

I had so much going on with Stay Out of the House I had to postpone it. Planning on picking up PDM again next year

It should be out the first half of next year

So i'm kinda curious, have you ever thought of making like some sort of Multiplayer Mode for the full version of Power Drill Massacre? Just curious. :]

Darn... Stil no linux version :D Who even uses mac for playing? :D

How do I find the 8-bit atcade version after I purchased the game?

This game is so cool! Any other release dates for the other games?

Failed experiment to play in the dark - webcam became too dark. fml. Well, I still showed I got the balls to play any spooky game in the dark :P the rest is getting further in the game.

If you love horror games, you HAVE to play this!

It is absolutely terrifying! Best horror game on this site. Hands down.

If you want to Check out gameplay footage below downloading, you can so here:

This game is absolutely terrifying! I nearly had a heart attack while playing it! 

I played this game like a year or two ago and I found it absolutely terrifying!
I just played it again, recently, and there is NO change! It is still absolutely terrifying! XD Anyway, here's my "all-in-one" experience, that I call a video: 

Amazing horror game,  great work guys ;)

These are the horror games I find to be the best

Great work, enjoyed your VHS game style!)

Another great outing, nice work.

I screamed so hard I knocked my freaking keyboard shelf off. Thanks.

This game is amazing! The art style and nod to the cliche horror movies of old adds a level of horror and unknowing that puts the player on edge. 



I mentioned in my Let's Play that the way the game is made reminds me of what a snuff film would be like, but maybe that was a tad excessive. It's more like that the horror movies today are dumbed down and only bare-bones, so something this intense is a shock. 


Either way enjoyed the heck outta this! Thanks for making it!

So I played #powerdrillmassacre good job @ making a game that drove me nuts @PuppetCombo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2-nVMYFmYOs

Cool game, but I'm terrible at it apparently. I said I hate it, but I more just hate myself for being terrible at games.



I hope at some point you finish the full game of this, it's genuinely terrifying!

Hey, do you think it'd be possible to provide a "portable" (just a .zip archive) version of the game for better compatibility with the itch.io app?

See this guide for more details, also, take a look at butler for uploading. Thanks!

(+1)

Sure

Hey, really awesome game haha i rather enjoyed it honestly. I made a short video of me playing it if you are interested in seeing my reactions. I'm looking foward to playing your other game this month as well.
