VERY good game! Impressive that it was made in two months! Going back to donate more for your work! Thank you!
A downloadable game for Windows
P.T. with a twist
Avarice is a first-person, narrative-driven horror game set in the 1900s, where you experience a broken man’s descent into mental hell. You play as Edward Armitage, a renowned explorer, returning home from an expedition gone wrong. Throughout the game, you experience a gripping narrative going through the curious mind of a man and his interpretation of untold events.
It's up to you to piece it all together.
Q: Do I need a good PC to run this game?
You need a decent PC for the game to run smoothly.
Q: Is there a saving system in this game?
Sadly there is no saving system, however the game is fairly short and can be finished in 30 minutes to an hour.
Q: How long did it take you to make this game?
We spent two and a half months developing this game.
Q: Is the download safe?
Yes, the download is safe. We unfortunately as students can not afford EV certification, that is why you may get a security pop up. Ignore this, our game is clean.
Q: I found a bug in the menu! You have to click twice!
Yeah, we know about this bug and we tried to fix it for a long time. Unfortunately it's a limitation of the framework we built the game on and we didn't have time to rebuild the framework.
Q: Do i need both files to run the game?
No, you do not need both files to run Avarice.
The setup is an installer that installs the game and does the work for you. You get a shortcut and an unistaller to remove the game when you're done.
The zipped file means you need to extract the game files yourself from the zip archive and locate the .exe file yourself.
Q: Who are you guys?
We are a small student team based in Oslo, Norway.

Excellent story and atmosphere! Really got me creeped out. Congrats on a great job devs 👍
This was a cool horror experience! It was different than I was expecting but in a good way!
I usually hate these but good job
It was awesome! I would love to see more updates to the stories that follow.

말그대로 PT 스타일 공포게임입니다. 배가 충돌하는 해상사고가 있은 후 정신적인 트라우마를 겪는 주인공이 겪는 (아마도) 현실세계가 아닌 곳에서의(배 안에서의) 이야기입니다. 짧지만 공포 분위기를 밀도있게 구현해냈습니다~! 추천!
Just a wee playthrough for you
I was skeptical going into this, Avarice compares itself to PT, and I thought how could it possibly stack up against a horror juggernaut like that. Well, the game does not disappoint. In my time playing I felt a lot of the same feelings I had while playing PT but Avarice has a much more clear straightforward story. I wish more horror games were made this well, a lot of games on this website feel, unfinished, this does not. Awesome job developer, I can't wait to see more of your work. If anyone wants to see what my experience was like you can watch the video below.
Thank you for your kind words! We really appreciate you. Please rate the game too if you enjoyed :)
This really was something special. Thank you for making it!
I personally didn't find this game too scary, but I did think it was cool and weel made!
I was so scared when I've realized this horror game could've been similar to P.T. but it was short. It's definitely the best horror game I've probably experienced so far. You guys did a great job of this!
It was fun and I wish it was a little longer!
I really enjoyed this game the graphics and sound effects are relly well done The game did remind me of P.T which i liked and I really liked the store as well if you would like to see my playthrough here it is:enjoy 😉👍
Reminds me alot of a new style of PT! I loved playing through it... even if i was scared the WHOLE time..
nice game. very good graphics and awesome game.i really enjoyed this game..good work
You forgot this...
1) When i press Esc Button that time dialogue or story line ( vice ) not pause....
Awesome game and great design, i loved it. Great Job!
I really enjoyed this one!
Enjoyed the game. Ran across a few bugs though. The lamp I was carrying around kind of disappeared, and every time I tried to skip through the credits it would restart the credits sequence. Not sure if intentional, but it led me to press the windows button on my keyboard and exit out of the game that way.
I should also mention that it was sometimes hard to see the doors during later portions of the game.
Thank you for the feedback. As stated previously this was a student project so we had very limited time. Some things just didn't fit into our schedule, unfortunately.
Pretty good work, the environment looks nice, the sounds are pretty good, and the whole thing worked well. I did bug out a lamp, but otherwise it ran smooth. The voice acting was also very good, personally I wasn't that into the story, it fit the mood and time period it seemed to be in, just wasn't all that catching for me. Something about the jump scares also weren't all that catching, but it is very well made and I did enjoy the experience. This is the second game in the video - 12:23
I like it)
REALLY enjoyed the experience, it felt well paced and the voice acting was pretty good. interested to see what you do in the future!
Hi there, I am a youtuber and I hope to get some support from you guys by liking and subscribing to my channel.
About the game, I do like the idea of adding the element of PT to tell the story of the protagonist and his loved one but I felt that maybe more context could be given about the event like maybe more imagery that causes the player to feel like they are living through the events that happened through the protagonist eyes so that they can relate more to the protagonist. I also felt that there could have been more interaction with the surroundings and surrounding items like puzzles to unlock memories.
Overall it has a great storyline and a great horror atmosphere so keep up the good work!
Thank you for reading my comment :).
its interesting and fun to see people mess around with the P.T. style element (going in circles in a place and things change and progressively get scarier and scarier) and watching people adding their twist into the mix. This was a really good P.T. inspired game. I had a blast playing the game. Also got a "Layers of fear" vibe which i really liked. One thing i didn't get, I'm kinda tarded but i didn't really understand the mask meaning lol. anyways keep up the amazing work my amigos i hope you guys put out more content like this. i did a small play-through if anyone wants to check it out :D
Very well made game. It gave me alot of Layers of Fear vibes XD I hope to see more from you in the future :)
btw, here is my video
Wow, I was scared all troughout the game, especially during the middle part where i never knew what to expect.
Lovely graphics and narration! Enjoy my amateur playthrough.
the guy who did the voice acting was WAY TOO CALM but overall its a great game, also im pretty sure i can take on whoever was in the house
This is really great, and the voice acting is spot on, I really hope you continue to develop this and add to the story 🙂
This short little horror games was a lot of fun!
At first I thought it would just be another PT clone (and even though it is based off the idea) it has a story you can work out as you go, and lots of nice little moments that are creepy and fun to play through!
Great work, I'll definitely keep an eye out for your other work!
Here's my playthrough for anyone interested:
This is one of the best P.T. clones out there. I don't care for P.T. or anything like it. However, this game surprised me in the best way possible. The narrative kept me interested and the loops were interesting. The world had life to it; other P.T. clones lack this.
This was a phenomenal psychological horror experience! Great pacing with the story telling, a few good scares, and gorgeously creepy environment. Here's my playthrough:
I found Avarice to be one of the better horror games I’ve played recently. It’s nice to have a story and characters you can attach yourself to, even if they aren’t the focus of the project. I was admittedly a little wary at first of the “psychological horror” game tropes that litters so many scary games now, but this one has a nice twist to the formula that goes its own way. I’m especially impressed that the game was made by students; Avarice is better than some horror games made by industry veterans. Excellent work, I look forward to more!
Thank you so much for your kind words! We sincerely appreciate it, and we're so glad you enjoyed it!
Really interesting game, Good to see that P.T inspirations are still going. Loved the concept of it. The atmosphere and sound creepy and well made, Would love to see more games like this
I really like the game. Atmosphere was there and story was interesting. Nicely done.
This game had a clear inspiration from PT, but works it around into it's own narrative and uses the loops to progress the story in an interesting way.It's a great student project, and I'd love to see what you could do with a full development cycle.
