Lobotomy is a fully cooperative dungeon crawler. Players become patients trying to escape from a mental asylum. All is set in a climactic survival horror theme. The game includes a story campaign and a Daily Nightmare mode with unlimited replayability. The characters do not remember who they are so they fill the blanks with random references from movies, books, comics, and TV. As theirs insanity grows, so does their power. But is it all real? Or is it just in your head?

Choose a patient and begin your adventure
In each scenario, there will be different objectives but the main goal remains the same. To escape the Manhunt and avoid the Lobotomy. Each character has a different specialization depending on their statistics and disorders. However, what makes them truly unique are their Innate Abilities. In order to unleash them, you will have to build up your Insanity.
Don't lose your way entirely, as each character also has a Personal Quest. Finishing it unlocks their maximal potential. Once you flip the card to the other side, you will play as your 'INSANE!' version with a significant boost to statistics and abilities.
Arm yourself with anything you can find
By using your Imagination, you will be able to envision useful weapons and equipment laying around dusty lockers. Collect them and trade with your group so that everyone is prepared for incoming challenges.
At times, you will see the possessions you hold as what they truly are - just Junk. Do not lose all hope yet. The Junk will provide an excellent upgrading material. With multiple ways to be improved, each item has the potential to save your life.
Get ready for horror encounters
Is it a regular hospital staff and security or are they monsters trying to get you? You cannot risk finding out. After all patients perform their turns, the game will take its course to ruin their plans. The monsters will move, spawn, and attack on their own.
Basic Monsters are the most common, different Elite Monsters will be joining up depending on the scenario, and if you ever encounter Bosses, make sure you are truly prepared. It's not an easy task, as if you gather too much attention for too long, the monster cards will flip to the other 'ENRAGED!' side.
Use the madness to your adavantege
Each patient is admitted to the hospital with a different set of disorders. These are the random additional skills they will be able to utilize, different in each game.
Aggression provides offensive abilities, Anxiety Neurosis grants bonuses to defense and fleeing, OCD is responsible for extra collecting and movement, and Schizophrenia grants a wide variety of big effects.
The Disorders do not require characters to spend Insanity. But their effects can only be used in predetermined time intervals. Juggling between using your weapons, abilities, and disorders, while avoiding the monsters and finishing the objectives will be the key to escape. Good luck to those who need it.
