Berlin-based indie developer Phantom 8 is taking gamers behind the scenes of their debut title, Past Cure.
Past Cure is a psychological action thriller in which players search for the missing pieces of their mind. It puts players in the role of Ian, a former elite soldier. After years of experimentation, coupled with years of torture in prison, Ian is now telekinetic and can also manipulate time. These powers came at quite a cost to Ian, whose mind is now fractured and drifts between reality and fantasy. With the help of his brother, Ian sets out on a path of revenge and discovery without knowing what lies around the next corner.
“Developed by a team of only eight, we aim to showcase that desire, talent and ambition can help you deliver a title that stands apart from what’s traditionally expected from an Indie studio," says Phantom 8 Managing Director Simon Gerdesmann. "Past Cure is our first title, and having secured multiple awards throughout its development, the team is excited to finally have the game out in the wild.”
Past Cure is planned for release on Feb. 23, 2018, for Windows PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
