Game release: “Draugen” (PC)

Red Thread Games‘ first-person adventure game Draugen presents a unique mystery tale set in 1920’s Norway.

The company is no stranger to adventure games, as it already did the great Dreamfall Chapters: The Final Cut and it also worked on the classic epic The Longest Journey. These were both titles that combined great storylines, characters, and worlds to get lost in. Their newest title looks even more immersive and unique thanks to its remote setting of coastal Norway. It’s 1923 and Edward Charles Harden, an American traveler, arrives in Norway to find his missing sister. Accompanied by his ward Lissie, they have to find out what happened to her and what dark mysteries the coastal community hides.

Written by Ragnar Tørnquist who was also responsible for the The Longest Journey and Dreamfall games, one should expect some great storytelling, and it’s made even more interesting by the fact that the narrator becomes more and more unreliable. It’s telling that Edward needs a ward, because his mental state deteriorates. With constantly changing weather, a beautiful and also creepy location that looks absolutely fantastic, the game offers atmosphere aplenty. Combine this with a great soundtrack, good voice acting, and this should be a winner. The most intriguing part is the dynamic dialogue system and that the companion Lissie seems to act independently, too.

The game is out now on PC, and if one chooses the Collector’s Edition which includes the soundtrack, a comic book and an artbook, then one can buy it with a 13% launch discount that will last until tomorrow, June 5th, 4pm UTC.
