POWER DRILL MASSACRE (2015) - Injured after a car crash, Megan flees through the woods into an abandoned building, looking for help. The door jams and shes locked inside, forced to search through the dark corridors. She hears the echo of a power drill in the distance and realizes she's not alone.

DAMN THAT WAS INTENSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :0


This should not have been released in this state


thats what the doctor said when you were born


lmao nice


awesome comeback dude. now make your 6 year old early access game playable


git gud


i would sooner spend time "getting good" at sanding my own nuts off my body

Há chance dos seus jogos irem para o PlayStation 4 ou 5? Assim como o Murder House? Gostaria de ver todos esses jogos no PlayStation 4.


i like it, but is not a good game, is kinda fun, but is unfair most of the time because you cannot defend yourself or run far enought because the place is too narrow and dark, if he finds you you are practicly ded, and thats not the only problem, the other one being that is practicly a try and error kinda game, is not bad but is desing to be frustrating, that can be fun, like lottery because sometimes one can be too lucky or too unlucky, just keep trying and eventually you will succed by pure luck, that will be fine if it wasnt for the fucking volume of the jumpscares, i get they have to be loud, but i thing one can broke his ears normally playing this, again, i like it, is very fun, but its have too much bad things, now i thing some possitibes will be the pressentation, its just perfect for a game that frustrating, even in cutscenes make you fell scared, the story is nice, even they dont get you all the information i thing its add to the creepy atmosfere of the game not to know what it happening at first, or who is the one that chases you, its perfect that way, but again, my only problem with this game, its the game mechanics

é realmente um jogo assustador, mas ao mesmo tempo incrível! Puppet Combo se superou fazendo esse jogaço! super recomendo.

Please release a Linux version too, if you're able to! Would love to play this!!

get a vm you goof


I tried to make it work with wine, but alas. Nun Massacre worked fine though, so dunno what's up with this one. I did actually try to use VM as well lol, but couldn't get it to work.

it doesn’t work on my mac

a really successful game .. even if I didn't get very far.✌✌✌✌

Scariest Game We Have Ever Played. Watch The Video To Our Reaction First Time Playing It!

PLAY AT YOUR OWN RISK. SERIOUSLY  😟. 10/10 though. Had fun making this video, Check it out for yourself. 

Literally the scariest game I've played. Normally I could speedrun a horror game like Outlast, but this is just too much for me.

i love your games 

and love pupet combo

Holy dam this game so loud 

Is there any chance at the CD-ROM release going back in stock? I'd love to pick up a physical copy.

not working on mac... asking for a refund.

don't use a mac

smart boy

Very hard. Very Scary!

fucking terrifying.


Great game man!! Congratulations!!! I was amazed by the amount of detail and style! Usualy in this kind of game, when you see the killer for the first time, the game kidna gets less scary. But not in this case!! You actualy get even more afraid, since you know that you gotta react really really fast. The angles of the fixed camera, the sounds, the environment, absolutely top notch.

Now, I ecountered I few bugs that broke the experience. I shall list them:

1) When interacting with anything in the sugar tunnel, Megan will get stuck in a endless text cycle. As if she was automaticaly pressing SPACE. This happened in every playthrough and the only way to get out of this is to reset the game. When in VHS mode, this would happen but the screen will also be completely convered with a VHS rainbow effect, being impossible to see anything. This was the worst.

2) One time I got to the "Good Ending" (without even seing the killer) and the game just froze when Megan finds Christine. It was really a bummer.

3) Sometimes Megan just wont interact with the glowing objects like keys.

4) Im many occasions the screen will freeze for a second. Which SEEMED to indicate that the killer was put in the world, but I am not sure about this.


5) Also, sometimes, when I pressed pause, the game would just not get out of the menu. Which made me reset the game.

6) Everytime I reseted the game without closing it, Megan would already spawn in the car with the flashlight. And I THINK she also has the keys already, and maybe that caused the bug number 03. But this logic was inconsistent, sice sometimes I would get the keys and sometimes I woulndt.

Keep up the good work! Congratulations and I am dying to try some other titles.

Alright beat the second game! I got to say that the difficulty really ramped up from Babysitter Bloodbath. I thought the monster was really terrifying! However, the monster just appears out of nowhere which makes it hard to survive. Thankfully, I was able to beat it and get the good ending too. Thanks for making this game!
I wore my pants, thank u)


Puppet Combo, do you intend to launch your games for other platforms, for new players? Consoles and Mobiles?

If I buy this game in the bundle, will I get any future updates automatically? or even the full releases for the games once they come out included since I already bought it once?


I regret playing this game. The pain and misery this game has brought me is unbearable, every time i close my eyes all i hear is the faint whisper of a power drill, haunting me wherever i go, this game has doomed me and i will never forget it. Good game though.

This game is EXTREMELY scary! Headphone Users BEWARE!

Great presentation. :-)

Can you release the music that plays on the hideout of the killer? "make them pure like children"

I loved this game! Super hard to beat and I never had a jumpscare and screamed so bad before in a game! The retro aspect to this game is spontaneous! Keep up the good work Puppet Combo! 👍

No one knows

i tried installing on a mac and im greeted with a "you do not have permission to open the app"

Try the instructions here: http://puppetcombo.com/troubleshooting

hey puppet! i couldn't find ur other games . How will i do ?

You can see on steam but I only found 1 game

hello puppet combo im having trouble installing night of the nun on windows, i have followed the instructions and nothing has worked, it keeps saying failed network error, i have tried multiple times to get it working, i really want to play though 

Can you explain what isn't working?

eyy cracked out another no commentary for the puppetcombo playlist :)


Hi puppet combo. i'm a game developer, and i want know: Power Drill Massacre will receive a online version? Like private matches? I love the game so much and i'm thinking to make an online version of the game. PLZ ANSWEAR MEEEEE!!

PuppetCombo, the game is very good even what is missing is two things, a version for Android and iOS and subtitles in Brazilian Portuguese to make it perfect ♡♡


Been trying to beat the game for quite some time, I hope the full version will be released soon since it's been 4 years :(
I love these devs though, keep up the great work.


Very good, but still kinda bugged.

How to download? I want to play this horror game


Buy the game.

This is still in development?




This game is so great. I'm sad I bought the Bundle a month ago. I want to play Samhain!!!! ;(




Puppet? Why don't you release Samhain by itself? And some of your other lesser known games?
