Fran Bow is a creepy adventure game that tells the story of Fran, a young girl struggling with a mental disorder and an unfair destiny.

After witnessing the gruesome and mysterious loss of her parents, found dismembered at their home, Fran rushes into the woods, together with her only friend, Mr. Midnight, a black cat that Fran had previously received as a present from her parents.

In the forest, Fran goes into shock over the loss of her parents and when she recovers, she’s at Oswald Asylum, an oppressive mental institution for children, and Mr. Midnight is nowhere to be found.

After having a dream about her beloved cat, Fran decides to escape from the mental institution to find him and go back home to Aunt Grace, her only living relative.

It has been 2 years since we did the crowdfunding campaign on IndieGoGo and 3 years since we started creating Fran Bow and now we can proudly say :

Fran Bow is coming out for PC (Win/Mac/Linux via Steam and GOG)

on AUGUST 27, 2015
We’ll also release the Official demo on the same day.

Mobile versions will come a little bit later, because of time and money issues.
We will send the game to everybody that supported us on Indiegogo via Humble Bundle.

And here is the new website !!!!

The Blog in the website is intended for Gamer Support, fan-art gallery and overall news.
Under this month of waiting, we will be posting more news.
Here's also the Steam page ready to go!

Thank you for your time and have a lovely day!

Natalia and Isak

So I just accidently seen word "Från" and added "Bo". From Swedish language it translated "In life empathy or experience". I'am I right probably programmer have thought about it?

Interesting!Nothing we thought about.. do you mean Från Bo? In that case it should translate to "from live/stay/nest" :) Your translation was more mysterious tho!

Yes, he said that your game looks really awesome, and often refers to it when he speaks about interesting and creative indie-horror games.

I happened to watch your sixth videolog, and I see that you work really hard with the game. I wish you the best of luck to get into Steam!

- Vennlig hilsen, Erlend
