The Repairing Mantis is a narrative horror game that lets you experience the disturbing, violent (yet absurdly poetic) nightmare of a mantis on a mission to repair a bridge made of flying squirrel flesh.
You experience the surreal nightmare of an insect. A squirrel tries to fly. An alligator is going through an existential crisis. A bridge made of flesh is broken. This surreal universe can turn out disturbingly relatable. It’s a dark existential experience that can be interpreted in many ways. As a praying mantis, you explore an eerie world, meet animals, collect dreams, and make impactful decisions.
