Dead Air: A 3D Atmospheric Horror Experience

You are alone at Tower 18. Your only companion went to salvage parts from Tower 15 for some much needed repairs, however that was several hours ago and you have not received a transmission since. Dead Air begins with players taking control of Tower 18’s command console and acknowledging a long overdue transmission. Only by carefully managing the tower’s failing power generator, one-way communication network, and the impending darkness can you lead your companion safely back home. 

Maintain Core Functions  

  • Keep the power on by repeatedly pumping up the generator. 
  • Lead your companion back to safety by inputting transmission codes. 
  • Stay alert as darkness overtakes the alien landscape.

Hello, I found this game and I must say. I did quite enjoy myself with it.


I think I regret taking that job as a radio transmission officer. The brochure said see new sights... this is not what I had in mind. Amazing game. You did a good job at building the tension. Keep up the good work! 


Loved this!

Hello, I played this game and I really enjoyed it, the concept was very interesting and it looked great, I like the sending codes mechanic that was very cool, and I got both of the endings which was pretty interesting as well, good work :)


Pretty creepy with headphones! Visuals are great and even before I figured out how to "start" the game I had fun clicking all the buttons and breaking stuff before getting into it.


That was wild - nice job! Assets are amazing!


Great game. Love the visuals.


Interesting concept. Well-made assets, very detailed and creepy atmosphere and overall good game. For more of my review, check out the video.
