A major update!

Hello everyone!

I've been away from Steam the last months, as I've been buried with porting Sylvio to PS4 and XBox One. Apologies for not hanging out in the forums as much as I use to. I've been answering e-mails though, and that's really the best way to get in contact. if you want to say hi or if you're having troubles.

Sylvio is being released on PS4 and XBox One Friday 13th, January 2017. During the porting I added some features like revisiting areas, nicer hand animations and a bunch of other stuff, and this update adds all of that to the PC and Mac version.

There’s been a lot of work done on optimizing the levels, and things should just run smoother over-all.

I have deleted two achievements, Photo Of The Face and Blood Of The Mist, because they didn’t make sense with the new ’revisit area’-function.

That’s all for now, take care and if you run into any bugs, I’m very grateful if you let me know at

“Sylvio succeeds at every single thing it wants to do. Games don’t do this kind of hermetic horror often, and Sylvio makes zero concessions.”
80/100 – KillScreen

“It’s a quiet horror game – an anti-screamer, right down to the calm almost-whispers of the protagonist – and it’s a triumph.”
Rock, Paper, Shotgun

“It's exciting, charmingly indie and above all, just the right amount of scary.”
8/10 – IGN
