Dark Fracture is an indie psychological horror game played in first-person, targeted for full release in 2021.

Over the course of the game, the player is faced with the character’s inner chaos – witnessing the world change around him as the barrier between reality and imagination seems to crumble.



Storyline

Dark Fracture takes place in the late '90s, set in an isolated forested region in the rural USA. You are put in the shoes of Edward: a body farm employee who is pained by his past, and only finding solace in the medicine that helps him get through the day. Edward is barely able to cope with his personal issues, which are only intensified by him living in solitude. He puts on a brave front and dutifully wakes up for work every day. His routine serves as his only anchor, but deep inside, trouble is simmering...

One night, while working the dreaded midnight shift, a chain of disturbing events draws Edward ever close to losing his grip on reality. As the very fabric of his world seems to unravel and twist. His home of the past few years is being pulled from under his feet. The cruel hand of fate once more nudging him towards disaster. One that threatens to engulf Edward's home in shadow.

Is it merely his mind playing tricks on him? Or perhaps there truly is something darker clawing at his heels, threatening to drag him into the depths? We're counting on you to figure it out: The choices you make will shape the results of his terrifying tale. Trapped between a world of horrors inspired by the works of ones such as H.R. Giger, and the unkind reality of the body farm from whence he came. Survive a twofold nightmare in Dark Fracture!



Features


  • Photo-Realistic Graphics: Explore the body farm's rich and immersive environment, and a terrifying parallel world inspired by the likes of H.R. Giger and Beksinski.

  • Inventory System: Search for key game items to help your progress, pick them up and use them from your inventory.

  • Physical Items: In-game objects that can be picked up and carried around the world to help in solving puzzles.

  • Sanity Meter: Your sanity is the key to survival. Paranormal events will hinder your progress throughout the game, keep yourself sane and away from losing your mind!

  • Limited Light Sources: You will find limited light sources to navigate the environment, your light sources could potentially run out so use them wisely.

  • Dual Wielding: Holding and using two items at once allows you to strategize the complimentary usage of the tools in order to solve a situational problem.

  • Procedurally Generated Events: Varying sequences of irregular paranormal events, in addition to randomly located pick-up items that appear in different spots at each game level restart.

  • Decision Making: The decisions you make in the game will impact your storyline and outcome. Are you going to follow the system or rebel against it? Choose wisely!

Certain scenes may potentially trigger seizures for people with photosensitive epilepsy.

Devblog Update Black

TL;DR version:
Thank you for your support, you're awesome and we love you.
New Dark Fracture: Prologue update with Steam achievements!
Some technical issues
Vote for us in the GDWC finals!
We work hard, dude, more updates soon.

Hello everyone! We would like to update you on some of our progress, a short retrospective about the year that's been, as well as a peek into what's to come and our plans for the future.

But first and foremost, we wanted to start things off with a thank you, thank you for all of the support you've shown us! Thank you to all of you who have spread the word, added us to your wishlists and of course, to all of you who have pre-purchased Dark Fracture! It's thanks to all of you that 2020 was such a blessed year for us!

Despite all that happened over this past year, your support has helped us through the lows and made the highs that much more impactful! We are deeply thankful to each and every one of you who supported us along the way. We've seen quite a lot of progress over the past year and your support made all the ungodly hours we've put into development worth it. And so, we are entering 2021 more eager than ever to carry on our work!

With your support and enthusiasm, we have been able to press on through the most difficult of times as we bring you all a brand new prologue update! Achievements are finally coming to Dark Fracture, and while the full game is still a while off, you can already play the prologue and get some achievements!

We have also taken the time to re-record and polish the voice acting you've experienced so far in Dark Fracture, so if you haven't played in a while, do give the prologue another shot! Take in the new voiced lines and hunt those achievements!
Please note that due to some technical difficulties we’ve experienced with our leading work machine during crucial development moments, one achievement is bugged (you will receive it automatically) and we cannot fix it until we resolve the technical issues, we expect the issue to be resolved within a week or two, and once it’s resolved we will post a full list of changes and updates of the new prologue version. Sadly, the issue also means Dark Fracture early access release will get delayed a bit further, but we can assure you we are doing everything we can to bring the game to early access as soon as we can!

If you want to support us as well, you can still pre-order Dark Fracture over on GameJolt! But don't wait too long, because this is a limited time offer. Even supporting us by adding the game to your wishlist on Steam is quite helpful for us and we genuinely appreciate it!

Next, as you might recall we have taken part in the 2020 Game Development World Championship Fan Favorites, and thanks to all of you, we have won first place in the weekly vote! But with 2020 behind us, the finals are already here! The voting will last for two weeks and we would be grateful to everyone who takes the time to cast a vote, so if you want to help Dark Fracture, be sure to check out the GDWC and vote for Dark Fracture!

And with all of that out of the way, you might be wondering what's next? As part of our unending work to bring the full experience of Dark Fracture to life and to make it accessible to as many people as possible, we have been working behind the scenes on localizing Dark Fracture and the prologue to several languages so that more people could enjoy the horrors.

And of course, there's more content from the upcoming Early Access to reveal, new and exciting sights that you would all soon get to experience and much more, so stay tuned for more updates from us!



Devblog Tease Black

As mentioned in the update above, there has been a lot of progress made during the development of the full game and upcoming early access. And so, we wanted to tease just a fraction of what’s to come and show off a few brand new assets from the "other world" for you to feast your eyes on!
