CBE Software announced on Tuesday that their psychological horror game, Someday You’ll Return, has launched on Windows PC. Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions are planned for later this year.
“Five years ago, Lukas and I came up with an idea. We wanted to set our next game into our Czech homeland, populate it with local legends and folklore and show the world places we experienced as children. We wanted gamers to experience how it feels to walk through the beautiful nature of our country while experiencing very Jungian psychological horror,” said Jan Kavan, co-founder of CBE Software. “It has taken five years since that fateful decision to bring you Someday You’ll Return, a game about family, home, and relationships, but also about the intimate fears we all have.”
Someday You’ll Return is a narrative-driven, psychological horror game with intimate concepts of fatherhood, fears, lies, and the refusal to accept one’s past.
In the game, you play as Daniel as you search for your missing daughter, Stela. While trying to find her, you’re forced to return to a place that you swore you’d never go again – the ancient Moravian forests.
While the story contains strong horror elements it’s not always the most obvious monsters that are the most frightening. Your survival skills and quick wits may advance your search, but all the while malevolent forces rise up against you keeping you and Stela apart. As your search leads deep into both the woods and your mind, it reveals secrets that should have stayed buried.
