About This Game

Lorna Ritten, has learned of Alfred Cypress, her grandfather whom she has never known, her family past has always been somewhat of a mystery. She also learns of what she has inherited, of which she has no idea of just how important this actually is to her and others. After being contacted by a stranger, this leads her into the beginning of a very unique situation. Regardless of what she is facing, she must continue forward to achieve what is needed for herself, and so much more!

Arriving at a secluded island, the setting is somewhat overwhelming. But, even with the vastness and mystery of the Island, and what dangers may lay ahead, she is still very intrigued. While knowing very little about Alfred Cypress, it is very obvious he has an eccentric nature, as well as brilliance in him. The technology discovered conveys all this in many ways. There is so much to do, not a lot of time, and the realization of the need to be extremely careful.

Overview for Cypress Inheritance: The Beginning

Cypress Inheritance: The Beginning will give you a unique gaming experience to enjoy. We intended for this game to enable the player to have options, as well as objectives in an environment with an A.I. that is defending the area. Cypress Inheritance: The Beginning delivers a true-to-life, stealthy gaming experience set in multiple open worlds. As you experience our true cause and effect system while on the path to achieving your goals, the strategy you use will have consequences and those decisions will ultimately determine your success or failure.

Cypress Inheritance: The Beginning includes Chapters I and II, and III. Chapters II and III continue the story, giving more to encounter and discover. These three chapters complete the game.


We have lowered the price of the game for the time being as we are working on it. We are rebuilding the entire game, adding much more content and strengthening the game play in UE4 to give the best experience possible. We plan to have this out sometime late 2017 at which time the price will be increased. Currently, it will stay at lower price and anyone who does purchase now will get the new UE4 version of the game with no additional charge. We want to make sure that this PC game from Cypress Inheritance, is what it was intended to be and is an enjoyable and entertaining experience.

Chapter I Screenshots

Chapter II Screenshots

Chapter III

Below are a few screenshots from the two environments from Chapter III. Chapter III has very strong visuals which include two distinctly unique, detailed environments. The game play in this chapter is also a little different from the first two chapters. There is more action, as well as more interaction within the environment. As you make your way through the environment you will need to be extremely vigilant, as Vonya is watching and waiting.


Single player, stealth based strategy gameplay
