About

A game of lysergic excellence.

Like traveling through the Matrix on acid.

Brainpipe: A Plunge to Unhumanity is an easy-to-pick-up first person game of real-time spatial navigation and quick reflexes. Supported by hypnotic graphics, ear tickling sound effects and immersive dreamscape music, the game's free floating, forward moving intensity gradually increases from serene to frenetic as you play. Effortless to learn, Brainpipe's simple and intuitive interface will have you playing in seconds. Immersive and dreamlike, Brainpipe will always beckon you back for more.

  • 10 twisty tube levels
  • Ramping speed and intensity
  • 8 dangerously tempting obstacles to avoid
  • Ten levels of ramping perplexity and oddness.
  • Mind glyphs to collect and score
  • Hypnotic sound and music featuring EelMix
  • Creepy eyeball buttons!
  • Fullscreen or windowed modes
  • Mouse, joystick and gamepad support

Digital Eel makes deep games about weird stuff, going so far as to name one of their better games Weird Worlds. Then they went ahead and outdid themselves.

Completely and utterly original and unbelievably addictive.
- Tom Lord, TheSixthAxis

The subtle doppler effect on the constant and schizophrenic audio visual assault positions you squarely inside the game in ways that most struggle at.
- Brandon Boyer, Offworld
