Locked Up on Steam (

The above link will take you directly to the Steam page for Locked Up where you may download the demo for free as well as purchase the full game should you like the demo.

Locked Up is another excellent little horror game I discovered on Steam quite some time ago. I never did write anything up about Locked Up but as I just recently downloaded the game again, accidently, it’s high time I put a few comments to paper/blog/etc. Locked Up was release on April 23, 2020 so if you haven’t tried it, give it a go.

Developed by EMIKA_GAMES, Locked Up is a, well, here is the blurb from Steam:

The game takes place in a house where terrible events occurred earlier. You will have to repeatedly wander along the same corridor in order to uncover the causes of insanity and understand who you are.

«Don’t believe everything you see»

The game Locked Up is a psychological thriller in the first person.

Average time to complete the game: 120 minutes

WARNING: Epileptic seizures associated with increased sensitivity to light are Possible. Some people may experience seizures when exposed to flashes of light and flashing images that appear in a video game. People who have not previously experienced such attacks may not be aware of their illness. A reasonable restriction of the game audience is recommended.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The main focus of the game is on exploring the environment in a closed space, which will change after interacting with it. Rely on your intuition and carefully study the details of the game. Over time, the tension will increase, creating an effect of insanity. The plot is not revealed linearly, almost without notes in the game world.

This game is not suitable for those who are looking for a dynamic horror with action elements and a fast-paced plot.


The game takes place in a house where terrible events occurred earlier. You will have to repeatedly wander along the same corridor in order to uncover the causes of insanity and understand who you are. Be patient, and the house will open previously locked doors and show you frightening memories of the past. The narrative of the story is transmitted through the environment in a measured rhythm. Each item tells a story, relying on your imagination.

Now, don’t let the “…wandering the same corridors…” throw you off and flip that I’ve already done P.T. switch to sway your decision in the negative. Locked Up is very well put together and the demo will force you to think to get past a puzzle or two. The demo I believe just contains what I assume is the first level of the game however I have not purchased the full game yet so am not sure. However, I do believe it is challenging or fun enough, both, to at least put a smile on anyone’s face who enjoys the horror survival type of game. The demo took me about 15 to 20 minutes to complete and as these types of games are the ones I enjoy, I will be purchasing the full version once I’ve finished the few other Steam games I have going at the moment. I am a huge fan of demo’s as it’s one of the primary factors for me in deciding to purchase a game.

Well, I don’t have much more to write about this one as the copy and paste of the Steam blurb pretty much says it all.

  1. Actually purchased this game this year along with 3 other Emika Games softwares and have been enjoying them. Steam had a bundled deal which include Locked Up, Summer of ’58, Find Yourself, and Father’s day. I purchased the bundle and though I don’t recall the exact cost, I do recall saving 40% overall when buying all 4 games as a bundle. The games individually are not that expensive but as I played the demo’s for most of those games and enjoyed them it was a good deal and hours of time to burn up :0

  2. Finally completed Locked Up and it was fun. I at first for the demo and played that of course before purchasing the game on Steam. I kept waiting for when I would see the demo portion in game. Well, it was the very end of the game, which actually fit in perfectly, the way Emika will at the end of a 1 game skillfully fade into another title to relate the games. Yeah, pretty cool stuff. I purchased a package of Emika games as mentioned in previous reply and was well worth it.
