A downloadable game for Windows


In the 80's, a man lost his family in a car accident. Years later, due to his guiltiness, he now suffers hallucinations in which he is looking for his lost child.

Your are back home trying to find your child but your dead wife do not forgive you for what you have done ...



DEMENTIA is a Final Year Project made during 5 months at Haute Ecole Albert Jacquard (Belgium).

The purpose was to create a playable project on Unity 5 running at 60FPS on PS4. 





Install instructions

  • Unzip the Dementia.rar file
  • Launch Dementia.exe

Better to play in 1920x1080px

You can activate the GodMode in the Pause Menu if you don't want to recharge the FlashLight anymore.



This PC version is playable with a Xbox Gamepad.

  • Left Thumbstick : Look Around
  • Left Thumbstick (Press) : Crouch
  • Right Thumbstick : Move
  • A Button : Select / Pick Up
  • Start Button : Pause Menu
  • Directional Pad : Navigate to Menu

- To Recharge de Flashlight :

  • Old Right Trigger to pull out the flashlight
  • Reload by rotating Left Thumbstick

The project was originally designed for PS4, not PC.  All of the control are mapped on PS4 Controllers but work perfectly on Xbox Controllers.

Played your game for an indie romp. There were a few bugs I came across. ((that I included in the video for your review)) where my controls locked after picking up the flashlight, and then following a reboot I died after picking up the flashlight. Level design was great though! I can't wait to see the finished product! Your game starts at 16:32

Even with DS4 the camera goes up and turn in round. And the game is literally unplayable with keyboard because you can't reload the flashlight.

I use a PS4 controller by the way, I don't have Xbox controller.

ola,voces poderiam mandar os controles de teclado e mouse?

I tried to do this game some justice, I hope it helps!


~Oblivisci Mortem

managed it with an Xbox controller !!! good game. 

The controls were a bit rough but I got the hang of it haha spooky and loved the detail of the game. Short and sweet, added it to my three spooky games series thanks! 

I would love to play this game, only if the controls weren’t completely broken.

Awakening on the floor from what could only have been a night of epic partying fueled with booze and sick ass nes games. (Probably beating contra without even needing to use the 30 lives cheat code.) You wander into the kitchen looking to splash a bit of water on your face in attempts to wash the hangover away. (Disclaimer: This doesn't work in real life. Trust me.) Its at this moment you hear a banging on the nearby door. After retrieving the key from the china cabinet you proceed cautiously into the next room. This is where you find the flashlight whose battery is somehow connect to your fucking soul.

This is a demo, I get it, but I can not fathom why someone would put a flashlight that you need to crank every 15 seconds or else you perish. Not an exaggeration. Every 15 seconds if you stop cranking the flashlight the battery that is somehow connected to your pace maker will cease to be. The real salt in the wound is the fact the game has beautiful lighting. Much better than a large majority of horror games that ive played. Please if this game is ever fully released fix the flashlight. I will love you forever

Also quick time and button mashing events suck. I dont think anyone likes them.

it's a good game, the story and gameplay isgreat but i wouldn't play it if you're on pc otherwise the controls are all weird and it doesn't sit well.

Pour les Francophones !

I will definitely come back when I either figure out why my ps4 controller doesn't connect or keyboard controls are added. It looks very nice but I didn't play for long.


Fun start of a game! I used an xbox controller and it works just fine. Only one suggestion is to have option for inverted Y-Axis. 

This was great! would love to see a fully fledged game of this

We played it as the first game in this video, Really liked the concept but the torch mechanic made NO sense at all, all the best if you ever continue this project.

Great game! Fun, very nice looking but the flash light life is way to short. I had to use the god mode to keep the game more fun and enjoyable. Other then that awesome game!

(I forgot to post this comment when I played the game ^^')

This was such a great game! The atmosphere alone gave me goosebumps and had me on the edge of my seat the entire time! I did have a few of issues with controls, I had to keep switching between keyboard/mouse and controller every now and then for interactions to work :/ I also felt as though the jump-scares were a little bit lacking with sound effects. If that last one had a good scream in it, I would've been horrified haha. Overall I really enjoyed this game and hope it get's a more fleshed out release soon!!

el juego es muy bueno pero que puede esta para computadora


watch our gameplay!!!

I've played only the first minute but there's no Keyboard scheme, only xbox controller so i couldn't recharge the flashlight or do some stuff, but the game is really cool. I hope soon you will make a version to play with keyboard.

This game has great potential! Maybe because this was just a demo, but I felt that there wasn't much of a "threat" from the wife since she appears and is taken care of quickly from some quick-action button pressing...or maybe I'm just so used to horror games nothing scares me haha. I think the only thing I would maybe suggest would be to let the flashlight last a little longer than 20-30 seconds or depending on how much you wind it depends on how long the flashlight stays on. Overall, I think this game has great potential and would love to see it finished!


Dementia looked visually stunning. The game seemed like it has a ton of potential. However, I kept getting stuck in random objects. I couldn't change the control scheme to play with mouse and keyboard. Last but not least, couldn't use an xbox controller. If this game was playable without having to jump through rings of fire to get it working, it would have a better review. 5/10

I liked the general idea of this game but having to wind the flashlight every 30 seconds was a little too much. 

It was a little buggy when I played it.. I wish that weren't the case. interesting concept with the wind up flashlight... but not being able to take more than two or three steps before having to wind it again kind of ruins it a bit in my opinion.

This is an honest review, great potential, needs minor work. I hope to play an updated version of this soon! 

This was fantastic. Wish there was more. Superbly done. 5/5... :)

Interesting idea and loved the sound effects! Got really creeped out by some of them 

Really cool game (even if it is short). The graphics are fantastic and it's pretty darn spooky. One thing i would want is a better indication as to the power level of the flashlight. Other then that it was a great demo!

Great game. I missed the whole point that this was required for game pad. I tried to do it with keyboard but, I think it's impossible because it's not mapped. Eventually I'll have to break out the xbox controller as, I didn't know that was an, option besides the ps4 controller.

very nice game tech demo.  would love to see a full game based around this. Couldn’t use the crowbar though.. hmmm here is my let’s play. https://youtu.be/4I_Z7zr_ZL4

It was a nice short game but I'm not sure if I did everything or not.

Hello! Played this on our channel and it was absolutely amazing ! Can´t wait for the full game!

great game . hope there's gonna be a full game soon

This game is great! It feels and looks like a triple A title. Just a shame it's short! 

If you'd like to check out gameplay before downloading it, you can so here:

Hello from Spain!

Even though the game is quite short, we have enjoyed the experience. We would mostly stay with the atmosphere, very well recreated.

We hope to see and enjoy more jobs in the future. Thank you very much for your effort

Very short but it´s a great game =D

Epic i want more lol
