Stifled – Become Stealthy Through Echolocation

The only way to "see" in this mic-enabled thriller from Singapore-based Gattai Games is via sound


Written by on

Developed by


Stifled is the spiritual successor to Lurking, an award-winning game developed over a six-month period by students at Digipen Institute of Technology, Singapore.

In Stifled, you “see” the world through sound. Sounds you make also attract the attention of creatures who are able to hear your fear as they lurk in the darkness. You must tread a fine line between generating sufficient noise to highlight your surroundings and staying quiet enough to remain hidden.

Stifled has been Greenlit and will be released in 2016 (exact date TBD) for PC and PS4; Mac and Linux are a future possibility.

Please note that while microphone input is recommended, it’s not mandatory; a key input setup is also possible.

And BTW…according to Gattai Games Stifled will be a Let’s Player’s nightmare, as commentary (or shrieking or whatever) will reveal his or her location to the game’s enemies. Heh.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
