What is a SUB_LOC file?
A SUB_LOC file is a modified Macromedia Flash Player Compressed Movie (.SWF file) used in Submachine Universe, a single-player exploration game developed by Mateusz Skutnik. It contains an interactive animation representing a location within the game. SUB_LOC files are stored within Submachine Universe's SUB_LOC folder.
The Submachine series of games consists of fifteen point-and-click adventure games developed by Mateusz Skutnik. Submachine Universe was first released in 2009 and received updates through 2017, when the game was re-released on itch.io.
When players download Submachine Universe, they receive a .ZIP package containing a note from the developer, the game's executable (.EXE) file, its introductory .swf animation, and a SUB_LOC folder containing SUB_LOC files. Each SUB_LOC file corresponds to a location that can be explored and interacted with within the game.
NOTE: Submachine Universe's SUB_LOC folder and SUB_LOC files must be stored in the same directory as its executable file (subnet_pc.exe) for the game to work properly.
How do I open a SUB_LOC file?
Because SUB_LOC files are not standard SWF files, they cannot be played in Adobe Flash Player or other typical SWF players. At this time, there is no known program that opens SUB_LOC files, outside of Submachine Universe.
