Interactive Stone is continuing to develop their narrative driven horror adventure game, Gray Dawn, following a failed attempt to fund the game via Kickstarter earlier this year. A new trailer released this past week shows the game is shaping up quite nicely.
Here’s an official description of the game from the Kickstarter page if this is your first time hearing about it.
The game builds around the story of a priest who is suspected of murdering one of his altar boys who went missing a few days ago. The young boy was severely sick, experiencing inhuman behavior, so the priest chose an exorcism. However, the exorcism apparently failed and the boy jumped out of the window. No corpse was ever found.
Gray Dawn is a first person horror game that involves puzzle solving, exploring both real and unreal worlds. Concerning the style, we didn’t wanted to go for the classic recipe of the horror: gore. In this game you won’t fight zombies, you won’t smash huge alien kind of monsters. We used more of a psychological touch.
We are inspired by old horror games, like Alone in the Dark, first Silent Hill games or Resident Evil and newer titles: Amnesia , The Vanishing of Ethan Carter and Silent Hills (P.T.). The environments will have story driven puzzles. We want to make a game that will mess with your feelings, defying the mundane logic.
Both the concept and the game itself look quite intriguing, so the most probable reason for the Kickstarter failing was a lack of social media attention. It’s good to see the developers are continuing to move the game forward though and the new trailer should grab your attention. Check it out below.
Be sure to let us know what you think of Gray Dawn in the comments section and we’ll see about lining up an interview with the developers in early 2016 to learn more about this intriguing horror game.
The game is currently only planned to release on the PC, but the developers also hope to bring it to the PS4 and Xbox One.
