"Cut off from civilization and mourning the disappearance of his wife, acclaimed author and historian, professor Edwin Roberts, plunges himself into the research for his next book – an investigation into a host of mysterious stone ruins hid deep within the clutches of an ancient forest.

But when bizarre events begin to occur, Edwin starts to fear that the ruins, the hostile locals and Cynthia’s vanishing might all be connected. And then there’s the terrifying figure stalking him from within the treeline…

As paranoia seeps in, and isolation takes its toll, Edwin finds himself plunged headfirst into an ancient enigma, a folkloric nightmare of cosmic horror…"

The Project:
- First person narrative driven horror game built in UE4.
- Search for hidden clues and unfold the story with the way you play
- Get immersed within the rich surrounding world
- Feel the tension rise as anything could be lurking behind the corner
- In the end, you get to have a huge narrative decision

Our goal
We work towards making the game have quality rather than quantity. This means that the game is fairly short considering the standards of a modern game but which also gives us more time focusing on making an immersive world with attachable characters.The aim is to have a "movie like" experience
without forgetting the gameplay, that grabs the players and leaves a lasting impression.

The team
We are from all over the globe. Our team consists of 10 people including me. Currently filled positions are:

- 3D Artist
- 3D CharacterArtist
- Concept Artist
- 2 voice actors
- UI Designer
- Generalist
- Composer
- Team lead/Game Designer
