A downloadable game for Windows

High Concept

SUB NIVIS is a first-person shooter inspired by classics like Quake and DOOM. Play as Sister Maria, a nun sent to succeed where others like the Vatican and the UN failed: the Black Pyramid of Alaska.

Once thought to be a figment of only the wildest conspiracies, the Black Pyramid is a terrible reality. Swarming with techno ghosts hell-bent on destruction, you were sent to send them back to their cold, metal graves. Use your trusty sword, the Archangel’s Absolver, to slice-n’-dice your way through the techno-horde. Or use your revolver to blow their mechanical brains out!

Collect several Power-Ups to make your task easier – but be aware, as with anything on God’s green earth, they too are only temporary. Use the supplies left behind by a lost UN task force scattered through the Pyramid to bring an end to the scourge that threatens all of humanity.

Can you survive the dangers of the black pyramid and succeed where others failed?

Love the music!


Amazing game! even my grandma enjoyed it!


The game is really fun to play and well made! Some of the floating platforms do get triggered early which almost prevent me from progressing. Other than that you guys crafted a fun experience.


Thanks for the feedback and for playing our game! :)
