About This Game

EPISODE ONE


Fight demonic creatures, hide from sharks, and shoot bad guys. Explore disturbing dream worlds and alternate dimensions while re-living the memories of anti-hero John Lazarus.

As a haunted child with an unexpected gift, to a street kid struggling with addiction, solve puzzles and overcome challenges while unraveling the mysteries of John's past. Experience an hour of immersive story driven gameplay in this first episode of a multi-part series.

FIGHT TO SURVIVE

Bash baddies and smash all the things with your trusty crowbar to stay alive while rampaging through self-destructing nightmares and parallel worlds.

VR FROM THE START

Experience an original adventure built for room scale virtual reality from the ground up. Prepare for scares while taking the long, fantastic road for a plate of nachos.

IMMERSIVE LOCOMOTION

Traverse through vivid and surreal environments by using either arm swinger or smooth motion locomotion methods. Teleporting is not done at will. Yet.


ARCADE MODE

After experiencing the main storyline, run and gun through the maps as a timed obstacle course. Time and accuracy based scoring makes it perfect for hot-seat and competitive play.

JUST THE BEGINNING

This is the first episode of a multi-episodic storyline. Uncover the mystery of John's life in an intensifying manner that reduces repetitive gameplay. By introducing new mechanics slowly in each new episode, players will be able to accomplish increasingly more powerful and complex tasks without being overwhelmed by learning too many controls at once.


In future episodes, follow John on his quest for vengeance as he discovers more about his supernatural powers. Go through training to master the skills to fight and disarm enemies in close quarters combat. Learn to create portals and travel between alternate dimensions at will. Find the culprits responsible for destroying his family and make them pay.
