Developed for Switch in conjunction with Dreamloop Games, this first-person psychological horror game takes place on a lavish ocean liner, with the player assumed the role of a famous Hollywood actor. However, the “eccentric and mysterious” director (voiced by Hollywood horror legend Tony Todd) has some strange ideas for his lead star.
Here are some selling points, direct from the publisher:
+ Story-Driven Exploration – Explore the bizarre rooms and corridors of the ocean liner. Piece together your past and expose the reason why you have been cast for this film.
+ Psychological & Psychedelic Horror – Is this all part of the film? Or are your memories playing tricks on you? Your world may change with the slightest of provocations and it’s your responsibility to decide what is real.
+ A Stage On the Sea – The deeper you venture into the bowels of the luxurious ocean liner, the more incredible—and terrifying—the scenes become. What awaits you in the final scene?
+ Ominous Classical Soundtrack – An original score composed by Arkadiusz Reikowski, conducted by George Strezov, and performed by the Sofia Session Orchestra highlights the disquieting atmosphere aboard the ship.
