Narcosis PC Issues And Fixes (FPS Lag fix, Black Screen And More)

Survival, horror at the sunless depths of the Pacific Ocean: Stranded on the seafloor with low light and few tools, an industrial diver takes desperate steps to surface before his oxygen — and sanity — give out.

Conceived as a student project, this first person survival story unfolds following an industrial catastrophe, from inside a half-ton, high-tech dive suit — a “walking coffin.” Influenced and inspired by a growing appetite for unconventional horror and narrative-driven games, Narcosis is rooted in reality, but steeped in the surreal.


  • Pressure Kills: High-stress situations accelerate oxygen intake, distorting sight, sound, space and time.
  • Hostile Waters: A knife, flashlight and flares are essential to surviving the nightmarish flora and fauna of the abyss.
  • Phantom Narrative: The survivor’s account unfolds in inexplicable ways alongside the player’s journey.
  • Beyond Good and Evil: No shadowy organizations or eldritch terrors at Narcosis’ dark heart, only primal fears and human limits.
  • Terror Verite: Primal fears — darkness, confinement and isolation — take on new levels of immersion when experienced in VR.
