The Beginning


It’s an ordinary Friday in the life of Daniel Noyer, washed-up advertiser and former entrepreneur who has fallen on hard times lately. Currently the lowest of the low at a publishing house, you receive an urgent, yet seemingly straightforward assignment: to find the company’s most important client, the renowned writer Sebastian P. Husher, who hasn’t been heard from in weeks.

Upon your arrival at Husher’s mansion, you realize something’s wrong. The lights, still turned off at the onset of nightfall, reveal that no one is home. The dog, warned about at the entrance, is nowhere to be found. The main door, left ajar, hints at a hallway drowned in shadows.


And an eerie, haunting melody, pierces a thundering silence.

The Features


  • A Thrilling, Movie-Like Experience

Join Daniel in a spine-chilling tale of horrors. Unravel a dreadful mystery of deep, unknown roots, a mystery threatening to destroy him.

  • Automated Cinematic Cameras

The use of automated mobile cameras along with a collection of unsettling music themes ensure that the tension remains constant and relentless.

  • 16 Playable Characters

Control Daniel as well as several other men and women, both acquaintances and strangers. They will explore an array of locations, designed by actual architects, solving riddles while avoiding an untimely end. How far will each of them go? Who will continue their tale alongside Daniel? That is up to you.

  • Normal, Everyday People

No heroes, no supermen, no superwomen. Real-life, ordinary folks. From the advertiser to the sales director, from the alarms technician to the doctor and the shop clerk. None of them can make it on their own.

  • Careful Exploration

The devil’s in the details, or so they say. Each clue might have a meaning; every observation can be crucial. There is no prize for first arrival at the end line; the prize is to arrive at all.

  • Life is Fleeting

There is no health nor sanity bar. The only thing that matters is: can you continue? If you crumble midway, will the next character make it?

  • Death Has Many Doors

There are no combats, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have to fight. There are no enemies, but that doesn’t mean you aren’t being hunted. There are no defenses, and yes, that does mean you must run, hide, and do whatever it takes to survive.

When the Kickstarter campaign failed, I almost thought the game was gonna cancel, which I absolutely do not want. Thank god it's still alive and kicking because this may be the survival horror we all need.

Sorry to hear about the kickstarter. Is it possible to reset it?

Thanks. We don't think we'll be returning to Kickstarter (as of today), but we'll do our best with what we can get elsewhere.

It looks really cool - love the H.P. Lovecraft vibe coming from it and the ideas on here. Was M.R. James a source of inspiration as well?

Hi! Thanks. We haven't had the pleasure of reading M.R. James yet. Thanks for the tip!

I highly recommend reading the following - "Casting the Runes", "The Willows" and "An Episode of Cathedral History". Also check out an old movie from 40s/50s called "Curse of the Demon"/"Night of the Demon", it's an excellent adaptation of the first tale - very atmospheric and intensely creepy. You might be able to watch it on YouTube.
