////(You can try the Demo free Now!) ////




The story is a nineteen forty's Esq murder mystery where you get to play as either Ruth Silverstien (A rookie investigator sent to her first day on the job) or Jack Armstrong (her higher up hardened by years on the force) as they receive a request for backup on a neighboring island town where just a year previous it was famous for the trial for the killing of a nine year old girl, but when they arrive they are only greeted by the towns crazy residents and the supernatural.

The gameplay is inspired by older survival horror games like Resident Evil and action horror vibe like Fear. The player with have a very limited inventory with only 8 slots (Or less depending on selected character), half will be occupied with items the player will start with (One standard issue revolver, 6 pistol bullets, a pack of cigarettes, and a note). How you manage your inventory will be up to your play style but you cant carry everything you will need. You could carry an assortment of weapons and ammo or play it safe with one preferred weapon and health items, not to mention key items that will also occupy inventory space.

The main enemies of the game will be ghosts. They will be invisible and the only way to detect them will be through sound. In close proximity you will hear ghostly whispers.

How ghost will effect the player will be through civilians. Civilians will be throughout levels hidden for the player to save. They will generally be in the level path or holed up for the player to go out of their way to get to. The player will guide the civilians to the nearest safe house wherein the civilians will give the player health and ammo.

The ghost will be in the way to cause the player trouble by possessing your civilians, turning them into haunted to kill the player.

The Style of this game is entirely meant to tap into your and my nostalgia. The Artistic style of the game will mimic PlayStation 1 and early PC games with most of the models being very low poly and textures looking similar to games of the time.

The voice acting will also be trying to mimic the majority of games that came out in that era, serious with a mix of cheesiness. If you need a point of reference I need only to point you in this direction.

The standard issue revolver that you start out with in the game (depending on selected character) that in typical fashion, you can complete the entire game with.

The old reliable shotgun that does excellent damage. Ammo for this weapon will be rarer then pistol ammo so saving shotgun shells for tight situations will be optimal. You can complete the game without picking up this high damage weapon.

A late game weapon with increased fire rate. The sub machine gun instead of going with typical game fashion using its own ammo will use pistol ammo as a sub machine gun would. It is designed if you want to pepper a target fast with damage instead of being a power fantasy. It will burn through your ammo supply fast, only use it when you need to.

A strange jar with a curious blue liquid. "Apply directly to wound" is written on the jar. Strange jars will be scarcely placed throughout levels for you to find in peculiar places. Your health will not recover on its own, you will need to consume precious resources.

here are a few of the enemies in the game.

The Haunted will be the main grunts of the game. Haunted are the residents of the town under possession no longer in control of what they do ,but something inside is fighting it. The haunted are slow moving but hit hard and will try to overwhelm you with superior numbers.

Lost haunted appear when the host body no longer resists possession. They are identified by there shadowy black skin cloak and glowing smile. Lost haunted will appear in game a few minutes after the haunted have been killed. They will do more damage and when in close proximity will cloud and darken your vision.

Selecting your character will determine your beginning load out and difficulty.
