Welcome to the Movement and Combat demo for That Abysmal Place.

The purpose of this demo is to garner feedback on the controls and overall feel of the game mechanics. Your feedback is valuable and will help us make That Abysmal Place the best experience possible. Comments can be left on the Itch page or in our Discord – we will provide a link at the end of the demo.

Note that this is an early pre-alpha build, as such you may encounter bugs or optimisation issues.


Despite being a demo, this trial is not for the faint-hearted or weak-willed. You will be forced to experience unpleasant scenarios and encounter uncomfortable things. Your playthrough may differ from other players.

We recommend playing with the lights down and the volume up.
