Small Delays...

“A delayed game is eventually good, but a rushed game is forever bad.”

A small update in regards to release dates - we have decided to push the release towards the end of April in order to polish the game to the level we feel it needs to be at. It's almost there!

Given that this is our first title, we want to make a solid impression. We're a small indie studio from a country not really known for making games, and want to make a splash and show what we're capable of! The team is giving it their all to make sure everything feels just right.

Will drop the final date in about 7-10 days, hopefully!

Thanks for your patience and interest in AoD:S!

New Release Date!

Hi All,

We're moving our release date by a few weeks to April 9th. As AoD:S is our first game, we want to make sure it's in the best and most polished state possible before putting it into your hands!

In the meantime, we're also working hard to get the non-VR version done.

We are confident the game will be worth the wait, and can't wait to see everyone experience it!

About This Game

“How did it get to this; A meeting I didn’t want to have; a trip I didn’t want to take.
My life’s in the hands of strangers I don’t even trust.
From the moment I first stepped foot on the Sentinel Islands, I saw creatures that I thought were the thing of legends...
My only goal now: Survive.”




Area of Darkness: Sentinel is a psychological thriller/adventure game that offers you a uniquely immersive cinematic VR experience like no other. Set in 1978, you’ll play as Dr Anne Evans on her journey from New York to the iconic Sentinel Islands; one of the few remaining places in the world untouched by modern civilization; a true area of darkness. Along the way, you’ll encounter a cast of intriguing characters and creatures, uncover harrowing mysteries and fight for your very survival.
