Ultra-Indie Daily Dose: Dig Deep Into The Mind In Medulla
Hello, you glorious gluttons for all things indie horror! Are you just starving for the newest of the new, the most unknownest of the unknown? If so, you’ve come to the right place. Welcome to the Ultra-Indie Daily Dose! In this series, we’re going to pick a new game every day from an indie horror creator you’ve probably never heard of. No million-dollar budgets or factory productions. This is the space for the little guy with not but a developer toolkit and a dream. So if you’re down to roll the dice on something different, then stick around and check it out!
Welcome back for another Daily Dose! Our title today is a mini horror experience by itch.io developer Retro Session. The game is called Medulla, named after the part that connects the brain to the spine. It also makes you vomit and sneeze. As you can imagine, Medulla is a game about looking at a brain.
In Medulla, you play a brain surgeon. For every brain surgery, doctors take extremely thorough scans to map out what parts of your brain does what; wouldn’t want to poke the keep-heart-beating part of your brain on accident, would we? This game simulates one of these preliminary data collections.
Your job is to operate an MRI and take notes (not actually, you kind of just watch) and flip through the cameras. Various musics play, and you observe the fun colors that show up on the scan. Of course, Medulla is a horror game, so obviously things don’t go as they should.
