The Briefcase is simply something special. It’s a indie horror game that was created and developed by Brandon Mattice. The goal of the game is to search through an abandoned warehouse so that you can find “The Briefcase.” If you’re lucky enough, you may even find close to a million dollars in that briefcase. No one has known anything of what The Briefcase contains. You could find a million dollars, access to the government treasury (I guess that’s not really worth anything) or even your own private yacht. It could be anything. The only thing is, this briefcase has something to deal with the warehouse workers disappearing. There’s also something that’s out to get you; someone who does not want you to get your hands on The Briefcase. You can check out the embedded trailer for The Briefcase below.
Developer Brandon Mattice developed and created The Briefcase inside an engine known as FPS Creator, a pre-built editor to make your own games without any coding experience needed. He claims that he’s “pushed the engine to its limits.” From his teaser trailer embedded above, I have to say, he has done a fine job. The Briefcase is an excellent indie horror game, and the fact that the game is free of charge, makes it even better. If you’re interested in trying out a free quality game, you can head on over to Brandom Mattice’s portfolio website, Cool Shades Media, where there will be a download link to the 60MB game.
The Briefcase will definitely interest people who enjoy dark and spooky games while not being able to expect what’s coming. Sort of like Amnesia: The Dark Descent, but just a bit less extreme than that title.
