A downloadable game for Windows and macOS


You're stranded at cathedral-like train station in the near future, searching for a ticket out of town. Explore the secret passageways, interact with strangers, dig for records, and get hypnotized by the soundtrack – a new batch of never-before-heard Archie Pelago tunes.

A Mysterious Setting, Plus Ramen

In Off-Peak, players will uncover a world where the fate of it's musicians and artists is unclear, yet their tools of the trade are highly prized. Meanwhile, the station itself provides all the comforts a commuter could ask for: great food, the best beer, entertaining board games, relaxing gardens. But *who* is really benefiting here? It is entirely up to the player how they want to engage in and interpret Off-Peak's stories, characters and themes.


Off-Peak is a short first-person adventure game and takes place in one giant area with multiple nooks, crannies and some hidden passageways to discover. Within its own bounds, the game can be explored at any pace or direction the player so chooses.

Off-Peak is Freeware.

Soundtrack Available:

This was so much fun. I love the truly unique style you have and the atmosphere you create in your games. Big fan of The Norwood Suite, too. 

Right on -- thanks for playing!

The world created feels amazing and is a pure joy to explore. I would love to see something like this released for Oculus Quest

I really love how surreal yet relaxing this game is! I was quite impressed and intrigued by the music, sound design, dialogue, and level design. Also, I love train stations and exploration games, so it really hit the spot! Thank-you kindly for making such a unique game (and for making it available for free)! I recorded a video of me playing, too:

Right on + thanks for playing!  Glad you enjoyed it.

Really keen to try this out, but is it possible to invert the mouse up/down? Hard to unlearn a lifetime of inverted controls.

Inverted mouse should be available.  If not here, it's definitely available in the Steam version.

this was like being in a thought provoking surreal art gallery inside of a somewhat dystopian oppressive undertones. i will be diving into this to see more of what i get out of it. thank you for this experience!

I played Off-Peak a while back but I had to play it again for the channel! I'm really looking forward to the next instalment releasing later this year! Thanks Cosmo D for making this relaxing, unique world!


Thanks for playing!  Great collage title screen there.

I absolutely adore this game. It brings a comfort to me very few other games have. Also that soundtrack OOF

Please play this game :')

Is there only one ending?

Can anyone please tell me who did the staircase artwork of the face with buttons? 

I really couldn't piece together a story, but I didn't care about that. The art, atmosphere, sound, etc. are all great. Although it might seem pretty random, every part of the world definitely shoots for a certain mood, and delivers it pretty strongly. Awesome game. You're awesome.

Please more, idk what kind of game this is but this is my FAVORITE type of game now. I loved it so much I wish i could jump into it and live there.

I see Steam has a Linux version, are there any plans to bring the Linux version to Itch.io ?

Lets just say, you dont need drugs after playing this.

Did a video on this recently what a weird funny game.

Damn. This game is a trip.

Weird ass game. The dancing guy was my favorite.


I played this awhile back, extremely strange but did really enjoy it! Would love to see more!
