Nature’s Revenge

In an ancient experimental Greenhouse, Nature takes her Revenge! Prepare for a breathtaking immersive encounter with the beautiful aspects of mother nature, but beware of her wrath…

Nature, tired of being used, limited, and synthesized; has consumed the Greenhouse and mutated into a wrathful, horrifying freak of nature. Trees talk, plants eat people, and insects are larger than you’ve ever imagined. Tread carefully, nature’s wisdom becomes deadly when she becomes conscious! The science hungry botanist discovered that, the hard way.

If you dare to visit the Greenhouse, you may experience beauty like you’ve never seen… But is it worth your life? Think twice before journeying into NATURE’S REVENGE!

Chop Shop

In a dilapidated and shabby one-stop-shop, horrifying cannibals await! Featuring a Butcher + Repair Shop, Junkyard, and something called The Mangler; this “General Store” was booming and thriving back in the 60’s & 70’s. Somewhere down the line, this family “business” lost its way… Now, locals call it the CHOP SHOP, which no one dares to enter! If you find yourself near the Chop Shop, you should definitely run! But, it’s probably too late… These maniacal, aggressive, and smelly cannibals are not interested in negotiating. Their only concerns are to capture and prepare their next “meal”, and to ensure that their killing tools are sharp and operational. As a final word of warning: These cannibals are BRUTAL, MERCILESS, and down-right DISGUSTING! BEWARE of THE CHOP SHOP!
