Located at the heart of the United States, Dormont seems to be a very typical American town. But here is nothing like it seems at first glance. Once it was a peaceful place, but now it is a mysterious ghost town. Most of the Inhabitants are trapped in an enigmatic darkness, with no means of escaping it. Strange and dangerous creatures are roaming the streets, looking for their next victim. The only way to survive is by staying in the light.
Join Edward Turner in this psychological thriller as he arrives in the attainted Dormont. Edward is an ordinary man with a troubled past, who is at the wrong place at the wrong time. He soon realizes that something obscure is happening in the small town. Will you help him uncover the unknown secret behind the dense darkness and save those who remain?
Dormont appears to be a regular and typical American town at first glance. However, it is cursed by a demon who shrouded everything in darkness.
But the danger in the dark is not the only thing at play in Dormont.
There are strange portals that emanate a bright light, that seem to bring anyone that goes through them to another place, similar yet different, apparently unreal but very real. Actions taken in one place have repercussions in the other.
Follow us on:
Those Who Remain started with a very simple premise. We wanted to create a game where we could play around with lights and darkness; where the player would die if he stepped into the dark. It all started with this simple idea.
It sounded great on paper, but when we built a prototype to test the mechanics... it just didn't work. Light gets gradually dark, so it's impossible to visually explain to the player where it's safe and where it's dangerous.
So we scrapped the original plan, but kept working on the same idea, a game where darkness would be dangerous.
But we added so much more: dimensional portals; moral choices; different endings;
and the game grew and grew and three years later, here we are now, announcing with great excitement that the game will release on May 15th.
So, very soon you'll be able to play as Edward and visit the accursed Dormont and find out what the hell is going on with that place.
Why is Edward in Dormont? Why is everything dark? What are these strange portals?
Too many questions, but if you get what it takes to get to the end, you'll get the answers.
It's been a lot of work, and it wouldn't have been possible to have the game as it is today without the help of our great partners: Wired Productions and Whisper Games.
The countdown starts - we hope to see you in Dormont.
