Among the Innocent: A Stricken Tale
We’re excited to announce that Among the Innocent: A Stricken Tale is set for release on Steam on the 14th of February 2017, for PC and Mac! The game is priced at R109, and will launch with a 10% discount. If you’re as eager as we are for the launch, head over to the Steam Store page right now and wishlist Among the Innocent.
Among the Innocent is a first-person thriller adventure game that takes place on an abandoned farm in the eastern Free State, South Africa. Players take on the role of struggling writer Peter York who finds himself trapped in the area. In your bid for freedom, you’ll need to keep your wits together as you explore the bleak landscape and uncover (and maybe even solve) the many mysteries that lie in dark corners.
Among the Innocent is the first of five games, together The Stricken Tales, which will form an expansive narrative across multiple decades, characters, and stories both individual and connected. Each game is inspired by a stage in the Kübler-Ross model for dealing with grief and loss, and will challenge players in unique ways while retaining a core of classic adventure gaming and dark aesthetics.
