Indie developer Phantom 8 Studio is bringing us a story-driven supernatural thriller that takes place in two worlds

There’s a lot going on in Past Cure. Developer Phantom 8 Studio has described it asInception meets Fight Club meets John Wick.” It offers an intense, story-driven experience.

You play Ian, an ex-elite soldier. Held in imprisonment and tortured for years, Ian has undergone military experiments that have left him with supernatural powers such as thought manipulation, telekinesis and astral projection. He never wanted any of this.

The experiments have fractured his grip on reality. And every time he uses his powers, his madness grows.

Ian wants revenge (and I don’t blame him). With the help of his brother Marcus and female double-agent Sophia, he intends to hunt down those who have done this to him and put them on the receiving end of the powers they’re given him.

Past Cure takes place in two worlds: Ian’s nightmares/hallucinations and the actual, waking world. Each has its own set of rules and mechanics.

Ian ultimately comes to realize that his true enemy — darker than any he could have imagined — may be hiding within his own madness.

Past Cure is to be released February 23, 2018 on Windows (Steam), Xbox One and PS4 (can be pre-ordered here).

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
