The next chapter in the atmospheric horror series stars a young girl who awakens in a dark and unfamiliar forest, unable to recollect how she got there. Searching for a way out, she meets a mysterious individual who reveals to her that she has been cursed.
To break the curse that has been placed upon her, she must explore her town’s streets to seek out her lost memories. However, she must be careful, as malevolent spirits lurk in the shadows and she must avoid them by running, hiding and closing her eyes in the hope that she can survive long enough to succeed.
The publisher has outlined the game’s key features as below:
- The Night Continues: Another chapter of the atmospheric horror series has emerged from the shadows! With a new story set in a frighteningly familiar world, new and returning fans alike can dive right in.
- Home Sweet Haunt: Eerie sound design and shadowy environments set the stage for gruesome and terrifying ghosts never seen before in the series.
