We hope to address some key issues in this update. Please find change list below:

  • Fixed an issue where upon loading, the game would hang, and sometimes crash.
  • A complete overhaul of the lighting system for better performance on all machines.
  • Fixed a bug relating to the map puzzle where the solution was not correct.
  • Fixed a rare issue where the game would freeze for 10 seconds randomly.
  • Increased the length of time before Jay speaks to you over the speakers.

As always, we encourage all persons finding an issue/bug to post it in the community threads, where we can then gather that information to fix :)

About This Game



Opening your eyes, you see a modern looking bedroom. All is quiet. Vague memories flash in your mind as you stand from the cold wooden floor. A voice bellows from an intercom placed on a wall, which is surrounded by strange shaped markings. The voice tells you your mission; to use your intelligence and escape. This is your trial. Can you unravel the mystery behind your captivity, and most importantly, can you escape this treacherous and sinister ordeal?





The initiate tells the story of Nathan Rockford. Nathan has lost his memory and has awakened in a house full of traps and puzzles. You take on the role of Nathan on an adventure to discover the truth to why your trapped here, who your kidnappers are, and have a chance to join a secret organisation and with it, the knowledge of everything.
