The Background

You play as Marshall Prime. A star studded , legend , in the Gorenwille Police Department. Most decorated and accomplished detective, who led the cavalry that decimated one of the top tier criminal empires in the city. Statistics speaks for itself , as Marshall Prime is the most respected detective to have graced the Gorenwille Police Department. But quite recently , Marshall found himself in the belly of the beast. With a tirade of quick , succession of murders that have taken place , Marshall is caught in a conundrum … failing to make any sort of connection between those heinous crimes. Its a full moon , you’re at your office , drowning in a bottle of Vodka , going through the documents about the gruesome murders , you then find a letter , addressed to you. You’ll open it and find out that you may have an eye-witness , waiting to rendezvous with you at the Gorenwille City Theater. Your journey into the darkness has only just begun!

The Story

It all began in 1938 in Nazi Germany. Young and ambitious Dr. Maximilian Vogel joins Ahnenerbe – the organization operated by SS that dealt with paranormal activities that could help the Third Reich to dominate the world and achieve the goals set by Adolf Hitler. As time progressed and Germany started to lose the war the organization was pressured to come up with a solution that would help them win the war. Working till the end few days before Wewelsburg Castle – their HQ was conquered they made an amazing scientistic discovery. And that’s where the trail ends. Fast forward a few years ago to 1990 to the City of Gorenwille. After a successful raid in the now-abandoned theater led by detectives Marshall Prime and Benjamin Black leading to the arrest of the drug gangs operating there, the city saw a drop in criminality by over 80%. It was rather odd when new series of murders started to ravage the city. After initial investigations, Marshall got a tip from an informant that helped him recover the CIA memorandum. In it, he found out top secret information about operation Paperclip that transformed former scientists from Third Reich to the US and giving them work. One name stood among others – dr. Maximilian Vogel!

Demo Update 1.3



Based on your gameplay we have decided to release a new big update – 1.3. In this big update, we recreated the RPG system, polished a few things, and fixed known issues.


Now you will get XP for every battery, document, audiologues, investigation dialogue, and ammo found and for completing objectives. If you find enough you will level up and get 1 upgrade point that you’ll be able to use for acquiring a special ability of your choosing. We have also replaced the sharpshooter ability with a new ability called Charger.

Now the batteries, ammo, and health kits might be empty and non-usable. We hope this can create more tension in the game. This can be removed using the new Charger ability.


Change list:

  • Recreated RPG System
  • Jumpscare effect time decreased
  • Recreated level lighting
  • Added new ability – Charger
  • Removed sharpshooter ability effect
  • Added news screen before the main menu
  • Added version number to the main menu
  • Game size decreased
  • Explorer ability now has only 1 level
  • The game now includes only 2 endings
  • Better performance
  • Videos are now packaged in .pak – decreasing the size
  • Intro video length increased

Bug Fixes:

  • Intro grammar fixed
  • Memorandum ‘Racial Profiling’ grammar fixed
  • Personal profile grammar fixed
  • Controls grammar fixed

Nice video, nice atmosphere. Only, the sigarette in the asstray. Its way to small and little. When you compair it to the asstray or better even to the coffee cup, then you clearly see that it is so small and little that it is not realistic. Other then that, really well done. Looks awesome your video!
