You, a 48-year-old journalist Abraham Torres move to the infamous Freedom Towers to clear up the mysteries and horrors which have been haunting the resident for years and years.

You investigate the apartments and rooms, find out the secrets of other residents and at the end you hope to write a book about all the secrets of Freedom Towers. Or maybe everything will turn out differently than you think. Get to know to your fears and your feelings.

Sometimes They Come Back is a game in which you will experience a deep swamp full of sorrow, pain, and agony — but also joy, compassion, and pride. Solve the puzzles, find out secrets, cry and suffer with the stories you discover. STCB is not your typical horror game, it is a game you will talk and dream about.

Devlog #1


Hello friends and welcome to the first official devlog!

From now on we will inform you every week (every Monday) about the current progress of Sometimes They Come Back.
We can always discuss news, fixes and new content here after the new devlog.
Of course we've been working on the game continuously for the last week.
All of your suggestions have been incorporated.
The new update is on its way already!

So then, here comes devlog number 1, week 25:


  • HelixOS event system bug FIXED (Special thanks to Sami)
    Here there was the problem that the login screen could no longer be unlocked.
  • Some items wasn't dropable FIXED (Special thanks to Sami)
    On drop item, the item just vanished but didn't drop
  • Fuse drop bug FIXED (Special thanks to Sami)
    Fuses dropped on the floor could be duplicated indefinitely.
  • Toilet animation bug FIXED (Special thanks to Merlin)
    Kinda a funny bug, if you had an item equipped such as the flashlight and you used the toilet, a second arm appears waving around with the same item.
  • Corpse Colliders FIXED (Special thanks to Paul)
    Not really a bug, but when you looted the corpses you couldn't start the loot process if you aimed at the head.
  • Collider bug in the gaming room FIXED (Special thanks to Jo aka Joseph)
    It was possible to just walk through the wall right next to the locked door

New features:

  • Inventory drag and drop
    Now you can just drag items out of inventory to drop them. You can easily drag and drop items in inventory, and it is now possible to drag and drop items from
    inventory to storage boxes. So you don't have to keep accessing the context menu and choosing "Drop" or "Store"

Title caught my interest because it's the same name as a Stephen King story. This looks pretty good despite bearing no relation. Keep up the good work!
