Coming out of nowhere, U55ndash; END OF THE LINE not only has reached over 1,200 backers on Kickstarter, gathering more than 58.000 USD but also receiving a huge reaction from horror fans and gamers alike.nbsp;The game managed to draw massive media attention from all over the world, being featured on gaming's largest international websites like Kotaku, IGN, Gamona and Gamer's Hell, with them quickly responding to U55's unique vision of a modern-day survival horror set in the Berlin subway accompanied with binaural beats.

The true success ofnbsp; U55ndash; END OF THE LINE sound gaming concept was proven one more time, when the title received an approval for Steam Greenlight after a scrutiny time of only 18 days.

Boettcher, U55's creative director.ldquo;Most games on Steam Greenlight receive an average mark of 50% and get lost in the shuffle. In our first week, we have reached an incredible score of over 80%.
