What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early access program is the best way to include the passionate horror fans into the development process as it gives us the ability to get feedback to make the game better and unique, we also have used Early Access as an opportunity to grow our relationship with the community.

There are many tested features planned to be added which are not included in the early access version .”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“For now, the development of Dreadful is projected to run between 5 to 7 months ,we want to be sure everything is working as intended with our players and that there is a minimal amount of bugs presented in the final version and that the game is optimized enough to work smoothly on almost all your gaming setups.

We will continue to push monthly updates until full launch as we want to ensure that the game we release is the best version possible”

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

“The full version of Dreadful will be a high-quality, highly-polished game, we are constantly improving the combat system and we are working hard on the animations to make them look as realistic as possible using motion capture technology.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is stable and playable but it's very early state. The basics of the game are done.

Dreadful currently has :

- Optimized and finished breathing and AI detection systems when playing in first person.

- 2 types of enemies with different mechanics when transitioning from first person to third person ,even the combat mechanics changes.

- 4 completed levels.

- When playing in first person ,the only weapon the player has is his breath and when playing in third person ,the player will find a weapon to defend himself against Mary's creatures.”

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

“Dreadful is expected to see a price increase at launch.”

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

“Communication with the community is crucial. We will invite certain players to test our new features and we will post dev diaries, updates on our website, Facebook page and Twitter account and we will be publishing videos related to the process of development on our YouTube channel.”

About This Game

Dreadful is a survival horror game that features an altered gameplay style with third-person navigation currently in development by Green Eye Games.


A former sergeant named Smith shot his wife Mary and two young children Chris and Rebecca to death before turning his shotgun on himself. Investigators said that the main reason behind his act is still unknown to this day and many police reports said that neighbors heard loud noises coming from the house at midnight but when police came to the scene they found no one.

You will take control of David Hill, a 35 years old journalist and reveal the truth behind this tragic event and the strange noises coming from this house.

“Believe only half of what you see and nothing that you hear.” - Edgar Allan Poe

Key Features

  • The Environment
Dreadful will be set in a house where an entire family was killed and a town where everything you see is Mary's creation, you will check every corner, every object, inspect anything unusual, you will be able to use anything you can see in the game .

  • True Horror
We are sure that the game will mess with your mind and exploit your imagination. When developing the game we thought about every move that the player can make, we believe that your imagination is a weak spot.

  • Game mechanics
Your Breath is your main weapon. There are a lot of ways to defend yourself in Dreadful but Controlling your breath and fear is your main weapon when you are in the house.

We have set up an AI system that will make the entity "Mary" smells and detects your fear, so always keep an eye on your heartbeat speed.
