What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Dark Fracture is Twisted 2 Studio’s first project and we are committed to it full-time because we are excited by the concept. As a two men studio, to take game development to the next level, we believe a few more elements will play a key role, and Early Access is the perfect incubator for a more polished end-product.

COMMUNITY
To an indie studio, community acceptance and support is everything. From our point of view, involving the community at the current stage of development will allow us to take into account their opinions, hopes and wishes. This contributes towards a final release that engages our fanbase at a depth that we would miss out on if we chose to ignore the valuable advice of experienced horror fans.

BETTER QUALITY
Early release provides us the opportunity and resources to refine the game. It is our goal to create an immersive, magnetic, and unpredictable experience to thrill even the most seasoned horror addicts, and with AAA-esque quality gameplay – no less.

DELIVERY
Our commitment to our supporters is to deliver a final, finished product. On top of the expectations we have placed upon ourselves in terms of community acceptance and quality, we also require ourselves to set out a realistic timeline and stick to it as close as we can. In order to do so, we need continued feedback and support to keep us on track.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Dark Fracture will likely be in Early Access until Q3/Q4 of 2021. At this incubation stage, Early Access versions of the game will likely include periodic changes, which may or may not make it to the final version of the game, as community involvement and feedback will shape and determine final product decisions that we make as a studio.”

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

“The full version of Dark Fracture will feature the complete set of non-linear storylines that early access will only have limited versions of, if any at all. There will also be many more different additions:

💀 Non-linear storyline.
💀 Real first-person POV experience.
💀 New environments & chapters.
💀 New characters.
💀 New game-play mechanics.
💀 New features depending on feedback.
💀 Procedurally generated events improvements and add-ons.
💀 More animations, cutscenes & game art.
💀 More professional music & sounds.
💀 Localization; many different languages.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“What you see in the demo Early Access version of Dark Fracture at the point of release is in its alpha stages, worth roughly 35 minutes to 1 hour of game time. It provides the early general structure of the game and a backdrop for future storylines, although certain aspects such as the environment, certain gameplay mechanics and chapters are limited.”

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

“Gamers can expect purchasing the game at a later stage or at the final release to be higher, as the full version is definitely going to be more feature-rich and provide much more game time, whereas the current early release stage has certain limitations.”

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

“We are easily contactable on all gaming platforms, Discord, via our website, or through email. We keep in touch with the community through our weekly devlog updates. The community is encouraged to provide feedback, report issues or bugs, and request in-game features in order to help the game realize its full potential as a truly hair-raising horror experience!”

About This Game



Dark Fracture is an indie psychological horror game played in first-person, targeted for full release in 2021.

Over the course of the game, the player is faced with the character’s inner chaos – witnessing the world change around him as the barrier between reality and imagination seems to crumble.




The story of Dark Fracture's demo takes place in the late '90s, set in an isolated forest region in the rural USA. You are put in the shoes of Edward: a body farm employee who experiences episodes of psychosis and is dependent on his medication to get through the day. Edward is barely able to cope with his personal issues, which is intensified by living in solitude. He puts on a brave front and wakes up for work dutifully every day as it serves as his only anchor, but deep inside, trouble is simmering...

One night, while working the dreaded midnight shift, a chain of unfortunate events leaves Edward alone and in the darkness. Slowly, the world around him seems to change.

Is it merely his mind playing tricks on him? Is this no more than an illusion wrought by an ailing mind? Or perhaps there truly is something darker clawing at his heels, threatening to drag him into the depths? We're counting on you to figure it out before he makes a fatal mistake.





💀 Photo-Realistic Graphics: Explore the body farm's mortuary rich and immersive environment.

💀 Inventory System: Search for key game items to help your progress, pick them up and use them from your inventory.

💀 Physical Items: In-game objects that can be picked up and carried around the world to help in solving puzzles.

💀 Sanity Meter: Your sanity is the key to survival. Paranormal events will hinder your progress throughout the game, keep yourself sane and away from losing your mind!

💀 Limited Light Sources: You will find limited light sources to navigate the environment, your light sources could potentially run out so use them wisely.

💀 Dual Wielding: Holding and using two items at once allows you to strategize the complimentary usage of the tools in order to solve a situational problem.

💀 Procedurally Generated Events: Varying sequences of irregular paranormal events, in addition to randomly located pick-up items that appear in different spots at each game level restart.

💀 Decision Making: The decisions you make in the game will impact your storyline and outcome. Are you going to follow the system or rebel against it? Choose wisely!

Certain scenes may potentially trigger seizures for people with photosensitive epilepsy.
