Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to ensure that we get community feedback about our game in regards to content, interaction, in-game feedback, and overall immersion. Because of that, we decided to release it under Early Access initially. This allows us to get proper feedback about the gameplay and interactions that really can't be successfully gained without letting the users play the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We hope to fully release the game in 2017, with new content coming out as we complete it during Early Access.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“This release of the game is to get the community involved in what we are doing and to share our ideas thus far. We hope to continually expand on our existing world of puzzle rooms, integrating the community's feedback where possible and applicable. Check on our announcements board for our upcoming roadmap for more information about what we hope to achieve and what we've already created in our Early Access game.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently, the game allows for users to access our first build, learn about interactions in the initial apartment, and then have the opportunity to complete puzzle rooms inside the mansion. As we move forward, we hope to release new puzzle rooms at defined intervals along with fixes and additional game mechanics.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes. As we define additional content for the game, we will increase the price nominally to cover costs of the new content. Thus, anyone purchasing early on will be able to get our full content for less than our final release price.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“As we have stated, we are continually looking for community feedback about the game. Please post to our forum or to our Steam discussion board with any feedback, comments, or other info.”
