The Beast Inside is a new twist on thriller and survival horror genres, telling a multi-layered story about cryptanalyst discovering a hundred-year-old murder-mystery that not only remains unresolved, but also puts his very life at risk.

Adam, CIA cryptanalyst, leaves Boston and moves to the country with his wife, Emma. His handlers are afraid they won’t be able to keep him safe there, but Adam believes he needs a peaceful place in the woodland, to take a shot at military code and alter the course of the Cold War. As it turns out, this area is quite the opposite of a peaceful place...

In the attic Adam finds the hidden diary of Nicolas which, once opened, carries the nightmares of the past right into the present, putting the lives of both Adam and Emma in a great danger. How come the mysteries from Civil War era seem to be connected to what is happening during the Cold War?
Who was Nicolas, the man who lived in that house more than a hundred years ago?

The Beast Inside offers a gripping new twist on thriller and survival horror genres.

Long-buried secrets, personal tragedies and madness spanning more than a century. Story driven game merging horror and thriller. The Beast Inside seamlessly merges survival horror and thriller, offering gripping new twists in both genres.

Illusion Ray Studio & Movie Games are delighted to announce The Beast Inside has reached its kickstarter goal, covering the additional costs of development.

The campaign, which has started on January 20th, has reached its funding goal of $47,294 today, 19 days before its deadline on April 1st, proving immensely popular with fans of the horror genre.

“Turning to Kickstarter was a move we decided to make to bring our vision of top quality, intense and photorealistic horror games to life. We have an ambitious approach to this project and from the beginning, we have believed that fans of the genre will find our idea very attractive. Therefore, the level of support and the fact that we’ve reached the goal weeks before the deadline has reassured us that The Beast Inside has a lot of potential” – said Aleksy Uchański, CEO of Movie Games.

Achieving the goal is not the end of campaign for The Beast Inside, as any further pledges will be used to fund additional features for the game, such as new game mechanics, more motion capture and voice acting or new locations and enemy types, which will become possible to implement as stretch goals are reached.
