Ultra-Indie Daily Dose: Psycho-Unstable Journey

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 we have Psycho-Unstable Journey by developer Ken Forest. This game was created in just a few hours for the One Minute Horror Jam, and much to my surprise is about ten minutes of mind-bending terror. 

Maybe terror isn’t the right word. Psycho-Unstable Journey certainly feels psycho and unstable, though. You play as a person on a road trip from one town to another. With a slightly broken English monologue, you describe the increasingly weird series of events that occurs throughout this trip.

Obviously, things go awry on the journey in Psycho-Unstable Journey. But it’s more just a weird and stressful trek than a true horror experience. I say that in a good way. No jumpscares, no goblins and ghouls. Just you, the road, and whatever madness you find along the way.
