Depths of Fear :: Knossos, like Athena from Zeus, sprang forth from the mind of the musically trained animator/programmer Philip Wiley. From his passion he has crafted a fun-focused first person adventure game with stealth, action and edge-of-your-seat elements within rogue-like procedurally generated levels.

In Depths of Fear :: Knossos your ultimate goal is to slay the mighty Minotaur. Loot procedurally generated labyrinths that are never the same twice to acquire the gold and knowledge necessary to build an arsenal and gain favor with the gods who will grant you temporary powers. Overcome insurmountable odds as you bolt in and out of the shadows fending off both lowly and legendary creatures such as the Hydra, Cerberus, Medusa and Centaur. To succeed in your quest you must collect the special medallions from each immortal beasts’ lair that combine to unlock a master sword that is the Minotaur’s only weakness. You will run. You will hide. You will fight. You will die.

Depths of Fear :: Knossos is currently available on Steam:


  • An ever changing Labyrinth: The hand of Daedalus’ is evident as each stage in Depths of Fear is crafted to never be the same twice creating a constant state of tension of the unknown.
  • Face the Beasts of Ancient Greece: Survive encounters against 8 immortal legendary creatures: Saytr, Cerberus, Centaur, Manticore, Griffin, Medusa, Hydra and the horror of the Minotaur.
  • Diverse Gameplay: To survive one must learn when to sneak through the shadows, when to run and when to engage in combat as they attempt to survive each rung down into in the darkness.
  • Knowledge is Power: Appease the gods by finding their books and earning their favor for special powers such as lightening from Zeus, Speed from Hermes, Earth shaking might from Poseidon or the illuminating light of Apollo.
  • Build an Arsenal: Loot the labyrinths for gold to purchase 8 trusty weapons that range from Blades and Clubs to the Trident and Crossbow. Use these weapons to secure the 8 creature medallions that unlock the only weapon known that can slay the legendary beast Minotaur.
  • Challenge the Unknown: When the adventure ends, the game has just begun. Beneath the skull a never-ending challenge awaits in the entrance of the unknown that provides countless replay value. How far down can you make it?
  • Unique & Adaptive soundtrack: Featuring a tension-based music system, the soundtrack (recorded with mind-altering 70’s era synthesizers) adapts to your situation.
  • Steam Feature Support: Achievements, Steam Trading Cards and limited Controller Support

“This is a fun game that will keep you on your toes and get your heart and adrenalin pumping. This is a game that everyone should try.”
9.2/10 – WatchTower Gaming

“Like a surreal and low budget horror film discovered on an obscure television channel during a night that has lasted too long, it’s jarring, hugely imperfect and strangely alarming. I’ve happily lost myself in it for two evenings now.”
Rock, Paper, Shotgun

“The overall design speaks not just to its retro-ish style but also its place among recent horror games. Depths of Fear: Knossos is a fairly small game in scope, simple and focused in a way that big budget, kitchen sink AAA titles are not, and to a large degree that is a relief.”
7/10 – Bloody Disgusting

The Team

One-man team Phillip Wiley, exhausted by the ‘game creation by committee’ style of games by larger companies, sought out to build the games he wanted to play.
