Indie publisher Katnappe and developer Genius Slackers will be bringing their upcoming first-person psychological horror title, What Happened (see what I did there?), to PC via Steam this July. They also plan to release it on console later this year.
What Happened was developed as a reflection of a world in which cruelty often dominates at the expense of empathy, but where not all hope is lost.
The game has players in the shoes of Stiles who needs to save himself from the dark forces that lure him towards self-destruction. The mental realm that Stiles inhabits is unforgiving, with twisted memories lining the hallways of his mind.
As players solve puzzles and escape the clutches of Stiles’ demons, the game will subtly respond to the empathy they show him. Players will pull the invisible strings that decide Stiles’ fate, as they attempt to lead him to the light at the end of the tunnel.
