Ultra-Indie Daily Dose: The Parking Is No Sunday Drive
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!
Somewhere in the last few centuries, perhaps even decades, many people have lost their sense of direction. How a Polynesian boat could hop from island to island with only the stars is beyond my feeble brain’s comprehension. Suffice to say I’m a big fan of having a GPS in my phone because I always know I will get wherever I need to go. Today’s daily dose, The Parking, is the story of someone not getting where they were going.
The Parking takes place in an unusual parking garage. One that the protagonist wakes up in after a terrible car accident, and is also full of monsters. Exploring the dark corridors of ruined cars and blood, the character finds more than they bargained for when they foolishly took the I-81 to Broadway Ave for cheaper cigarettes (not actually the character’s backstory, just my own fan theory).
Other in-game texts and documents lead me to believe this is some kind of elaborate Hell or purgatory. But evidence in the form of demonic creatures lurking about are seemingly contradicting the strange futuristic doors and hallways that look straight out of Alien: Isolation. But lore is not important, as we at Dread XP judge our games purely by the quality of the sawed-off shotgun, and the one in The Parking is quite good.
