Can you solve the mystery and escape the hollow?


STORY -

Francis Barrett was an English magician and occultist who led a reclusive life, spending most of his time in an isolated manor house.

Nestled in a hollow and surrounded by a dense forest, the house was hidden from the world.

Little is known about Francis Barrett beyond his authorship of The Magus, a Celestial intelligencer and compendium of occult and magical information.

Over the many years since Francis Barrett disappeared, people have attempted, without success, to find the mysterious house and discover what happened to Mr. Barrett.

No one can be sure what experiments Francis Barrett performed, or what was conjured up, in that house.

Some who have gone searching for the house have never returned.

We have decided to migrate the game to Unreal Engine 5 in order to truly bring to life the ‘House in The Hollow’ and we are making good progress with the changeover.

This change allows us to add new game features, including full ray tracing support with Unreal Engine 5 Lumen support as well as the addition of detailed 3d models with Nanite.
