Remothered: Tormented Fathers began as bit of a passion project from Game Designer Chris Darril back in 2007. The game was intended to be a fanmade remake of the original Clock Tower, but soon became it’s own thing all together.
Momentarily put on the backburner after Darril was hired to work on NightCry, Remothered: Tormented Fathers is set to finally release sometime in 2017 on PS4 and PC, according to Darril and Stormind Games. In addition to a release window announcement, a new “announcement” trailer has been unveiled.
The following overview of Remothered: Tormented Fathers is provided via the game’s official website:
Rosemary’s investigations will bring her to believe that the disappearance of the man’s daughter Celeste actually hides a terrible massacre. Dr. Felton and his wife, Arianna, could be the only ones to know the truth, including the secret behind Celeste’s real identity and a fanatic cult of cloistered nuns in red.
- A thrilling psychological plot – Thanks to his impressive direction, Chris Darril puts into play a story rich of complex life-like characters. Everyday people that turn themselves into scary monsters.
- You will be never safe – Your aim is to discover the truth, but you have to survive in order to do so. Your enemies are like obsessed stalkers always on your steps.
- No guns or powerful weapons – Just use what you find on your path. You can either react and fight or deceive the stalkers. But they will never give up or die.
- Increase your abilities – You will learn new skills and increase the ones you already have. Your body is the only way to understand how are you doing. No health meters here.
- Sound as your best friend and foe – Hear every single sound, you will notice your stalkers’ footsteps. The soundtrack composed by Nobuko Toda will alert you when your enemies are getting closer.
- No loading times – No empty moments or boring loading times. Enjoy the game and explore the mansion. Open a door and visit all the rooms. Everything will occur in real time.
- To run or not to run – Running will be your best chance to survive from a stalker on your back. But you have to be careful. Your noises can be heard. Sometimes, hiding is the best strategy.
- No silly puzzles – Just like the plot, the settings and the characters have been conceived to be analog to real life. Everyday people using everyday items can do the most dangerous things.
