Battlefield 1 is not the only game set in World War 1 this year, as indie developer StrixLabs has shown off some alpha screenshots of their horror title Ad Infinitum

In an announcement on their personal blog, the small development team from StrixLabs showed off some new images for their first title; a horror game set in World War 1. In Ad Infinitum, you are a person trapped in the trenches of a battlefield, where your goal is to solve puzzles and escape the clutches of an unspeakable horror that is chasing you.

Much of the visual design and gameplay of Ad Infinitum is created to invoke a sense of dread and hopelessness. Like other first-person survival horror games, the goal is to escape, not to fight, whatever horrors await you. To that end, StrixLab is hoping to make the game as immersive as possible with dynamic lighting and visual effects with Unreal Engine 4, leading to some beautiful screenshots of the games dark environment.

A short teaser trailer for the game was released last year as well, showing off a bit of the gameplay. StrixLab is promising a demo of Ad Infinitum after E3, but plans on releasing more screenshots and video of the game during the show itself. 


StrixLab, is a 8 person team located in Hamburg, Germany. Their primary work is on Ad Infinitum, which started out as a student project for the master course of Game Design of HAW Hamburg. where several of the developers graduated from in 2014. The team is also working on a second title, titled Bulrox and Gib,  a physic-based action which was created for the Epic Mega Jam in October of 2015

The team also detailed their new social media presence in their update, including links to their Twitter, Facebook, and their own developer blog, as well as their Steam page, in the hopes of gathering up some more support for Ad Infinitum
