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.
The story of Dark Fracture's demo takes place in the late '90s, set in an isolated forest region in the rural USA. You are put in the shoes of Edward: a body farm employee who experiences episodes of psychosis and is dependent on his medication to get through the day. Edward is barely able to cope with his personal issues, which is intensified by living in solitude. He puts on a brave front and wakes up for work dutifully every day as it serves as his only anchor, but deep inside, trouble is simmering...
One night, while working the dreaded midnight shift, a chain of unfortunate events leaves Edward alone and in the darkness. Slowly, the world around him seems to change.
Is it merely his mind playing tricks on him? Is this no more than an illusion wrought by an ailing mind? 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 before he makes a fatal mistake.
Photo-Realistic Graphics: Explore the body farm's mortuary rich and immersive environment.
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!

We hope you are going to enjoy this quick tease into Dark Fracture, we will value any feedback Discord! Thank you :)
An exciting week and a bit has passed us by since the release of our demo. In this time we've seen quite a few comments, downloads, and even let's plays from our community! And we couldn't be happier for all the support that came from you all, and all the feedback that we have taken to heart. And so, for the first update since our release came to light, we would like to talk about just that and about what comes next.
First and foremost, we would like to thank you all for over 4,000 downloads of the Dark Fracture Demo thus far on all gaming platforms! We are excited to see so many people downloading and interacting with our demo. And we would continue to polish and improve on it as we move forward. With the help of all your feedback and support, that helps us pave the way towards the future of our game.
Second, we would like to thank you all for all the feedback you have given. Feedback from our playtesters, our community, and the many many videos we saw popping up on youtube and elsewhere about our demo. Using those many hours of recorded material to see the experience through different eyes. Catch more bugs and needed changes with all the information now available to us.
While watching let's plays of our game was a delight in its own right. Being able to see records of so many different runs of the game by so many different players was and is an invaluable source of information. Seeing so many different outcomes, snag points, strange bugs and even smooth and comfortable runs all help push our game forward. So that it will continue to grow and evolve as we work and toil away at making the experience better.
But this of course is not all we have been up to. While our prime focus is absorbing the massive amount of feedback and footage we saw and turning it into tweaks and improvements. We are also, as ever, thinking ahead about the future. As there is much more to come than just the demo, naturally this is but the first stop of many on our way to the full release of Dark Fracture.
For this week's tease, we would like to share with you just a few images taken of new assets we've created even through all work of our recent release. These of course are pictures taken from a testing environment and as such are not what would be in the finished product. But they provide a small glimpse into the future.
