Catalyst – Closed-Beta announcement!

"Catalyst is an interactive story and it's like reading a Creepypasta story, but also it's not. One major difference is your influence in regards of the ending of the story."

Hi everyone, we finally reached that joyful moment when we have a build ready to share with a few good-hearted testers. Indeed, today we officially start our closed-Beta testing session.

Closed Beta will give us invaluable information and insight into how our game plays out.

From experience we believe the beta testing phase should take one or two weeks. ( The build has already been vigorously tested in-house. )

We'll keep you posted on our upcoming release date!

About This Game

ABOUT THE GAME

Catalyst is an unsettling interactive narrative into the world of psychotherapy. The story is told through newspaper articles, notes left by a disgruntled secretary, unwelcome letters, audio tape recordings and a unique journal that evolves throughout the game based on the player’s own insightful analysis of an unusual therapy session.

THE STORY


After the mysterious death of Dr. Pokorny, Dr. Novak, relatively unknown by many, takes over the illustrious psychotherapy practice. At the same time he inherits Mrs.Ruzicka, the secretary of the deceased psychologist. In the hands of Dr.Novak, the practice is less then flourishing.

One morning, Dr.Novak receives a box of audio tapes – Recorded psychotherapy sessions to be exact – and he is asked to listen to them and give his insightful analysis of its content.

Sadly, things take a turn for the worst for Dr.Novak. His troubled mind seems to be getting the best of him...Or does it?

You decide. You are this psychotherapist. You are Dr.Novak...And your task is to carefully analyze and give your insight on the recorded therapy sessions.

Ultimately, your answers will determine your own fate, Dr. Novak.
