The Salatroitsk Incident
A downloadable game for Windows and macOS
- Made in 48 Hours for Ludum Dare 49 for the theme 'Unstable' -
'The Salatroitsk Incident' is a short PSX-style horror game set in a fictional Russian city after a nuclear incident. You've been sent to collect rock samples for research purposes, however have been warned of rumours of a strange mutant abomination roaming the area. Collect 6 samples by following readings on your Giger counter and escape before the monstrous abomination fuses your body into its bubbling fleshy mass.
How to play:
Use your Giger counter to track down and collect the 6 radiation samples. The CPM will be higher as you get closer to targets.
Keep your distance from the abomination, shooting it will cause it to temporarily retreat, however this will be less effective as you collect more samples.
Once all samples have been collected, find your way back to your vehicle to escape.

bro im so shocked that a game thats made in 48 hours is so good!
the game itself so smooth it feels like those OG games ngl.
Great game!! If you limit the use of the gun by the amount of ammunition. might make it more fun. I like this game. ;-)
This was fun. It lasted as long as it needed to, it was creepy to see this strange mutant chasing you and the map was as large as it needed to be without being excessively tedious. Great work, I'd love to see a bigger version of this!
I really enjoyed your game. :) It's pretty impressive that you were able to do this in only a matter of 2 days.
Pretty fun and scary game. The G-counter mechanic was interesting, while the monster seemed horrifying
will there be a 32x bits version?
Quite interesting concept of game here. At first I thought is going be easy since you got radar and all. but the moment you let your guard down, it easily scare me off as the monster appear of nowhere!! Good game my friend! Continue the hard work!
Love from Malaysia ^_^
A short but well-made indie horror game. This game doesn't do a whole lot in terms of gameplay, graphics and music but the simplicity of it really adds to the horror.
One of the reasons why I think PSX-style games work so well is because they are simple in terms of character models and location design. Therefore I'd say this game works extremely well.
You never know where the creature is, and the fact that it's drenched in PSX type fog really adds to the horror.
Overall, I loved the short time I had with this game.
I played this as part of a pack of 8 Itch.io games on my Twitch channel.
buen juego me espante poquito con el mutante pero logre pasar el juego.
un juego sencillo pero entretenido yo le doy 100/100.
was fun! but very easy didnt die once. but for 48 hours well done!
Anyone that is a mac gamer, I was not successful playing with a controller.
Either way, we both had a lot of fun playing it. We will check out your other games now.
really loved this game!!!
This is a genuinely scary game at first, but once you realize the monster goes away after you shoot it, it loses the vibe. Maybe add a mechanic that makes the game more difficult? But overall, this is a really cool game.
According to the description (and based on my experience), the monster gets more resilient the more samples you get, to the point where I can't get the last one because I can't chase him off after I get 5 of them. :/
I made a video on this game - 28:02
Was neat, i liked the concept, but i guess with the gun and how slow the monster was felt pretty safe through the game. Was still enjoyable and hope you enjoy the video!
Not only did we end up making very similar games but pretty much got the same LD49 results as well.
Huge congrats fellow Mood 2nd place winner! (although this is for compo so its even more impressive)
Long live the moody nuclear incident games!
congrats on the 2nd place! This is my highest placement so far, so pretty happy with it, previously it was a 4th place in mood. Next time we both take 1st!
I am very confused but I had a blast!
Great Game! It had me spooked at first when I first say the blob thing.
This was a lot of fun to navigate through the wasteland and the fog, was definitely not expecting the creature, and how many shots it could take!
Dang boy, DANG BOY HE THICC, THAT'S A THICC A' BOY BOY!!!
Not scary or hard, but still fun!
Made a video
Does it works in 32x bits?
good horror game could add a little more stuff tho
The monster started to make me worry when he would run away for only a couple seconds at the end. Thing was ugly! Cool game!
СОЮЗ НЕРУШИМЫЙ РЕСПУБЛИК СВОБОДНЫХ!
wow what a creepy game nice job
Like the concept. Would love to see it expanded upon, but it definitely has potential.
Pretty cool concept. Needs a bit more things , there's not much going on other then a slightly annoying blob.
Thanks for playing, the game was made in 48 hours for the Ludum Dare game jam, so I didn't have much time to add too many features.
I quite enjoyed this! I love these PS1 style horror games. I also liked that it was nice and simple.
