About This Game

Janet, a young and upcoming journalist, has been asked by her editor to investigate the mysterious abandonment of a once lively town. Based on the information released by the media about the killings and supernatural sightings, Janet set foot into the town thinking she would find an interesting story to publish, only to uncover secrets that were meant to stay hidden forever. The Painscreek Killings is a first-person, explorable mystery solving game set in a fictional town of United States in the 1990s.

After five years of development, we finally launched our first game, The Painscreek Killings, on steam.

For those who never heard of our game, The Painscreek Killing is a walking simulator that focuses on investigating a murder case set in a fictional, semi-open world. Its play style is similar to Gone Home but bigger in scope and length.

We faced many difficulties and learned things we never imagined during our development cycle. Someone mentioned in Twitter that the scariest thing for developers is to press the "Publish" button. That moment has come for us.

We would like to thank all of you who gave us your support. We hope that you will enjoy the game as much as we did making it.

Here's our new screenshots:
