About this game

Garage - This weird machine is said to create a bizarre dark world by working on the subject's subconscious mind.
The player character is thrown into an enclosed world filled with sewage, with decaying wooden buildings and rusted metals.
And he discovers that his body has been changed into something in between a machine and a living creature.
He wanders around this structurally complex maze-like world in search of a way out.

"Garage: Bad Dream Adventure" was originally released as a PC adventure game in 1999. In this game, the player character enters his inner world through a psychotherapeutic machine. He is turned into an odd-looking biological machine and searches for a way to escape from that world. Because of its unique world setting, it is described as one of the top 3 warped games or bizarre games.

It is basically a mystery-solving exploratory adventure game. But it also has many RPG elements such as character development through body modifications and intricate fishing system. And the story questions the ambiguity of escaping from the world and staying in the world.

One of the features of Garage is its detailed world building. Elements like energy circulation, ecosystem and how the world came about are intertwined tightly, and are reflected in the game system, bringing to life the feel of the deep another world. The unique feeling of strangeness and anxiety surrounding the whole game, even though it is not a horror or depressing game, is created by these settings and system.

In this mobile remastered version, almost all images have been retouched, videos have been revised using AI frame interpolation, user-interface and game balance have been improved, and new chapters, subquests and multiple endings have been added.

A surreal philosophical experience. I actually LOVE that there aren't 'hints'. It's well worth the $5 I paid for it as it's a lengthy game. I've discovered a few endings so far, but still have quite a couple of unreached achievements -- still trying to figure out how to unlock the water towers. I've found all crabs and rare crabs, and all frogs except for 10 rare frogs, and I'm pretty sure I know what each one will be. I do wish there were more than 2 game save slots, though.

I absolutely love this game. It is unlike anything else. A resuscitated Japanese horror game from 1999, it traps the player in a surreal waking nightmare. The visuals and character design are wonderfully ugly and difficult to look at; the environment is creepy, claustrophobic and filthy. Gameplay is an emotionally uncomfortable experience, like a good horror experience ought to be. Truly a unique game, and well worth the money. No weird permissions required. So glad this gem has been preserved.

I absolutely adore this game. A friend sent me his copy of the original on PC a long while ago and I was hooked, and when I found out there was a remake?? For MOBILE??? I'm so glad I get to play it whenever and wherever now. I still love the PC version, but this one is definitely more user-friendly with input, navigation and translation. The art is gorgeous and the characters feel very real. I can't help but be so re-enthralled by the lore! More than worth the price.
