You take the role of the husband, on what should be a romantic evening with your wife. The night turns into a nightmare when a police detective breaks into your home, accuses your wife of murder and beats you to death.
Only for you to find yourself immediately returned to the exact moment you opened the front door, stuck in a TWELVE-MINUTE time loop, doomed to relive the same terror again and again…
Unless you can find a way to use the knowledge of what’s coming to change the outcome and break the loop.
An interactive narrative that blends the dream-like suspense of THE SHINING with the claustrophobia of REAR WINDOW and the fragmented structure of MEMENTO.
Very likely in 2020.
It will be initially released on Xbox and PC. You can WISHLIST it on Steam HERE.
The first 30 minutes of the original prototype (spoiler free), played by the Kinda Funny crew (Greg Miller & Nick Scarpino) while Luis explains the overall concept.
