What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We believe that the game is in a state in which it will profit greatly from players' input and suggestions for further improvements and balancing. Involving players will help us achieving the best possible quality for Phylakterion.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We hope to complete the game in about one year. During this time, we can add more planned features as well as content, while taking player’s feedback into consideration and balancing the game accordingly.”

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

“On one hand, we’re planning to add more content to the game, like locations, entity types, tools, and scary interactions. On the other hand, we’re also working on new features, like a permanent progression system that’ll let you to unlock specific perks. These perks will allow you to adjust your playstyle more to the way YOU want to play, and are not just flat improvements. For example, a perk might allow you to take more items with you, but make you move slower – so you’ll have to decide carefully.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version of the game is corresponding to the game’s description in the “About this game” section.”

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

“The game will receive a one-time increase in price for the full release.”

About This Game

Phylakterion is a co-op psychological horror game, playable for 1-4 people. You and your team enter haunted places to find a possessed item – make sure to stay alert, because the entity possessing it does not take your presence kindly and will try to stop you!
Use different tools to locate the possessed item and find out what kind of entity is possessing it – Can you see the item’s reflection in a mirror? Does it scream when you drop it? Does the entity write with the blood of its victims? Then use the right rituals to destroy the vessel before the entity finds you! Can you retain your sanity and finish the task at hand?

Early Access Features:

  • 3-step exorcism: Search, identify, destroy!
  • 5 different locations: Explore a city apartment, an abandoned mansion, a haunted hunting cabin and more!
  • 7 different tools: You’ll need ghost hunting equipment, like Geiger-counters, cameras, or notebooks, to locate the vessel, identify the ghost possessing it, and destroy it!
  • 1-4 players: play alone or with your friends.
  • Unique entities: Stay alert and adjust your strategy to the situation, as every entity behaves differently.
  • Afterlife: You might die if you’re not careful, but you can still be helpful to your team!
