The Repairing Mantis is a narrative horror game that makes you experience the violent nightmare of an insect. A praying mantis repairs a bridge, slices up a squirrel, then it's up to you…

It's disturbing and depressing. You explore an eerie world, meet animals, collect dreams, and make impactful decisions. It's a dark tale intersecting the themes of depression and dreams. The universe is surrealist. A squirrel tries to fly. An alligator is going through an existential crisis. A bridge made of flesh is broken.
