Fear is certainly a tool, one that is insanely manipulated within the gameplay for the Jawbreaker PC demo. What starts off as a frightening horror display eventually evolves into a terrifying survival atmosphere. Developer Vincent Lade returns to the horror scene with his new Jawbreaker title, where a world has savagely moved on. With the provided trailer below, you’ll grab an incredible sense of what kind of hell to expect. Keep an eye on your heart rate for this one.
Run, Hide, and Fight Against Gangs and Monsters in Vincent Lade’s Jawbreaker
You’re a member of the New Citadel City, home to several survivors who remain within a bunker in Jawbreaker. The world outside of the bunker is where the trouble stirs around. After the Great Economic Collapse of 2028, society crumbled, and humanity failed. Now, gangs of all efforts are struggling to survive with supplies running low. It’s up to you, the player, to explore an “abandoned” police station.
As fate would have it, the police station just so happens to have company. The Faceless Gang is what they like to call themselves, mostly due to their masked appearances. Whether you choose to evade trouble or face it, you can expect multiple Faceless members to rough you up. You’ll have to consider shadowy corners for a chance of escaping, much like in the vein of the Outlast games. However, once the sun goes down, the “real danger” commences. What is this danger, though? Only the attached trailer provides a glimpse of a monstrosity inside the police station holding a headless body. The trailer is pretty intense with its violence, so do watch with caution if blood and gore don’t sit too well with you.
The demo for Jawbreaker is available now for PC folks who have either a Steam or Itchio account. Vincent Lade is currently working on bringing the title over to the Epic Games Store. For this, we can follow him on Twitter to see what his next steps will be.
While there is no confirmed release date other than for an anticipated Q4 2023 window, horror enthusiasts can expect more content to arrive. Jawbreaker will be part of the Steam Next Fest event for 2023 in June, so be sure to mark your calendars!
