Indie publisher Katnappe and developer Genius Slackers have released their high-school horror title, What Happened, to PC via Steam. The game is currently available with a 10% discount for the first week.
What Happened takes players on a drug-fuelled psychological roller-coaster within the troubled mind of Stiles, a student haunted by demons, real and imagined. The player will encounter, through the eyes of Stiles, rampant vegetation, predatory beasts, and the claws of hungry demons, representations of his memories, and deepest LSD-fuelled fears.
The player’s empathy for Stiles’ and the pain he feels will subtly affect the outcome, with the ultimate aim of steering him away from self-destruction.
Hassan Mehdiasl, the producer on What Happened, said:
“Making this game was a journey for us, and we want players to experience a similar one when they play the game. We had an impossible task in front of us but we pushed through. Our struggles, hardships, and anxieties are reflected in every corner of Stiles’ world. More than anything else, we made this game with our emotions. We poured ourselves into its corridors and the result turned out exactly how we wanted. We made it through this journey and got the happy ending. We hope our players will too.”
