Well written and tense narrative. The themes reminded me a bit of Labrys' story in persona 4 arena. Nice usage of ambient audio and Tatiana's artwork is very nice. As others said, visuals for the other 'animatronics' would be very cool to see the distinction between them.

Jam Host

Tatiana explores a lot of great horror tropes around the concept of the automaton and the soul in classical fiction like Frankenstein. The historical Russian setting and the novelty of automata add a lot of flavour to the story. This demo is short, but it is able to bring up a lot of themes, particularly the creator/creation relationship, the soul, science, and (spoiler) exploitation of the dead.  

As a WIP I don't have too much feedback, but it would be nice to see the other automata. I know Tatiana is the only one that talks, but exploring the interplay between the others as characters somehow would add a bit more diversity to player interaction. I'm interested to see how (spoiler) this 'revolution' plays out and definitely want to know when the complete game is finished!

Thanks for submitting Tatiana to the SCREAM MACHINE jam! 



;A; Such an abrupt end. That was really well done! The writing was great, and the character sprite was gorgeous. 


Interesting story and atmosphere - I always hated mannquins and dolls so this was right up my phobia! Interesting and complex story, really enjoyed it! Keep it up! :D


Beautifully written.  Had me gripped till the end.  Was like an interactive film.  Had a bit of a Steven Spielberg's AI vibe to it or Transcendance.  I will not spoil it for anyone, but I was half expecting a 6th sense "I can see dead people" ending where Peter Learns he too is not human.  What a nice experience, definitely something different. Art was gorgeous.  Well done on this little gem.


Interesting story and art)


Nicely organized. I like that there is an auto and skip capability. The music and sound effects were good, I would have enjoyed even more variation of it. Interesting story.
