Red Deer Games’ Boreal Tenebrae will take you on an exciting retro-style journey, complete with a mystery ambiance and scary themes.
Red Deer Games is quickly establishing itself as a publisher of quirky small titles. Following the release of the charming Under Leaves and Little Mouse’s Encyclopedia to console, they are now behind the impending release of Boreal Tenebrae, a retro-styled adventure that seems to blend Stranger Things with Twin Peaks.
Boreal Tenebrae immerses you in the fantasy of a fading village, leading you through a fantastic journey that draws inspiration from PlayStation 1 classics. It has a mystery ambiance and horror aspects as you travel through this world in the shoes of a young adolescent girl, Bree, as she searches for her sister.
A sick and dying town
The trouble is that this town is infected; everything is odd and unusual. And it is the people of this town who have been affected by this sickness. It will be up to you to figure out what the hell is going on.
You take on the role of Bree, an adolescent who is looking for her missing sister Sarah. She began the ceremony, but it engulfed her and she vanished. Investigate your sister’s abduction and fulfill the magical ceremony to save the fading village.
Everything in this sick town is out of the ordinary. Strange boxes emitting mesmerizing static have arrived around town. Some residents, including Sarah, have been swallowed by this enigmatic entity and have never returned. Experience an atmospheric adventure with horror aspects in which you play as several individuals, each with their own tale, and go to dark versions of real-world locales.
In this nightmare, you must investigate the crime, find your missing sister Sarah, and fulfill the strange ritual in order to save the dying village. Will you be able to uncover all of Boreal Tenebrae‘s terrible secrets?
Later in 2021, Boreal Tenebrae will be released for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch. However, there is not yet a specific release date. We’ll let you know when we learn more. So stay tuned to Game Freaks 365 and subscribe to our daily newsletter.
