What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We're creating the game an episode at a time, and even though the full version isn't going to be released for quite a while, its first part is 100% playable. We leverage this and start seeing players' feedback as soon as possible.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Currently, very few people are working on this game, we're seeking an investor to help us gain momentum. If nothing changes we think the complete game (that means the final episode) should be ready in the 2nd half of 2020.”

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

“We are planning more episodes, following the story of Elisa in 1940s Poland and in present day Himalayas. In the full version the player will explore larger locations, interact with NPCs, and solve several types of puzzles.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We currently have the first episode where the character of Elisa is introduced along with the story of the Kadath train. The player experience and the plot of the episode may change in the final version of the game, but the Early Access version is fully playable and we're generally happy with how it looks.
Please refer to the About This Game section for details regarding the current state of the game.”

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

“Yes. When more episodes are being published it is planned to increase the pricing.”

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

“While we're not likely to change the general outline of the game's story, we're very open to suggestions about gameplay and how individual episodes play out. We have a clear idea as to what we would like the final game to develop, but we're quite willing to change it based on players' input. To share the ideas with us and the rest of the community, you can always send us any suggestions (even the most surreal) by email (http://ideas@kadathgame.com) or put it on the Steam Discussion board (https://steamcommunity.com/app/995490/discussions/).”

An adventure game, inspired by H. P. Lovecraft's literature. Players investigate a case of a Nazi train which vanished along with one of its passengers, Elisa Schneider, sometime during World War II only to reappear in the Himalayas 75 years later.

A long time ago...

At the height of its power, the Third Reich extended over an area of more than five million square kilometres. To travel around this vast empire, its leaders were using special luxurious armoured trains - Sonderzüge. Historians agree that by the end of World War II a total of twenty-five Sonderzüge had been built.

In November 1945 the world media were thrilled to learn about an alleged twenty-sixth train, the existence of which was revealed by Nazi officers at the Nuremberg Trials. According to their testimonies, the train, code-named Kadath, disappeared in Spring 1943 under mysterious circumstances en route from the Wolf’s Lair in Rastenburg to Berlin, carrying a group of SS officers and their wives. The investigators denied these rumours, claiming that the story was invented by the defendants to protect their runaway comrades.

While warrants for their arrest were issued, none of them was captured. Nor was any trace found of the lost train. Until now…


May 2016. Two weeks ago a group of Sherpa mountain guides returning from an aborted Australian expedition to Annapurna came across an exhausted woman. Because she was severely hypothermic communication was impossible: the Sherpas only managed to pick out a few German words. Soon afterwards the woman died. However, there were a few puzzling details: she was wearing a 1940s two-piece German costume with an NSDAP brooch, whereas the documents that were found in her purse indicated that she had been born in Dachau in 1917, although she couldn’t have been much older than 25. Her name was Elisa Schneider and she was among the passengers on the lost train…
