Ultra-Indie Daily Dose: Experience The Incident In The Building 71 Incident

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 of indie horror! Today’s game is The Building 71 Incident by Brazilian developer Bruno Pressanto, also known as Scary Cube. Although this is Scary Cube’s first game released, they’re off to an amazing start. One could argue that this incredible little title is a spiritual successor to the art-house film The Curse of Professor Zardonicus.

The Building 71 Incident is set in an abandoned university building in Brazil. The building was allegedly condemned due to a gas leak, but of course, that’s not nearly spooky enough. You play as a former employee who decided to investigate the real cause of whatever happened in Building 71.

This is a first-person exploration game. The Building 71 Incident has a traditional found footage style, with such a powerful VCR aesthetic that I initially thought this was a Puppet Combo title. The game has a ton of detail and interactable objects in the area and is heavily focused on exploration.
