Season 2 picks up just as the original left left off. Players assume the role of Dr. John Wakefield, psychiatrist to Season 1’s protagonist Jeremiah Devitt, who sets out in search of his client, who has mysteriously vanished. Soon Wakefield is drawn into the haunting web of forbidden knowledge, madness, and a deep conspiracy hiding it all. For those not yet up to speed on the events in the first season, it’s available this week for 75% off in the Halloween sale at the Phoenix Online Store with the code PUMPKIN50, and is also available at Steam, GOG.com and other online retailers.
“We truly cannot wait to release the new Season 2, we’re very excited to introduce a lot of surprising revelations to the players who have waited patiently since Season 1,” says Enrique Cabeza, Creative Director for The Game Kitchen. “We have created a much bigger map to explore, with more characters, more puzzles, and more mysteries to solve than the previous season, which means more gameplay time. The wide screen graphics are better than ever with new effects, like raining and snowing. And you can’t miss the new Carlos Viola soundtrack, it will chill your bones!”
