The Corridor: On Behalf Of The Dead is an atmospheric first person sci-fi horror adventure, set within the mind of a suspected killer. It tells the story of a world recovering after a cataclysmic event. The struggling survivors, clinging to an ever decaying society where murder, assault and battery run rife, turn to an experimental form of justice. Known only as the “The Corridor”, the experimental program allows specially selected individuals to be trained as Custodians. Custodians are tasked with entering the minds of suspected murders in attempt to solve the most twisted and horrific murders. Their primary role is to seek out memory evidence of their crimes. The game’s foundation lies in its strong story, atmosphere and exploration but will also include puzzle and adventure elements.


The idea for the game came from a day dream on the beach. What a terriyfying notion, that someone could walk through your mind and take a look at your memories.
