'Remothered: Tormented Fathers' (ALL) Gets Nintendo Switch Date - Screens & Trailer

Remothered: Tormented Fathers is a interactive psychological horror game with strong cinematic inspiration and extreme gameplay.

Remothered: Tormented Fathers is the first chapter of the survival-horror saga Remothered, and the brainchild of Chris Darril, who has been working on the game since 2007. Inspired by the atmosphere of the horror saga Clock Tower, the project raised the interest of survival-horror fans and it immediately became a de facto cult. In 2015, the Italian game designer funds Darril Arts and partners up with Stormind Games in order to give birth to the title thousands of survival-horror lovers have been waiting for.

Rosemary Reed, a fascinating 35 year old woman, reaches the house of a retired notary, Dr. Felton, who is affected by a mysterious disease. The woman is greeted by Ms. Gloria, the nurse who takes care of the old man. When Rosemary reveals herself and her true intentions, the terrifying dread begins.

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.

Ported by DICO, Darril Arts and Stormind Games are proud to announce that Switch owners can finally brave Remothered: Tormented Fathers starting July 26.

“I really want to thank our loyal community for making it possible for us to bring our story to the Nintendo Switch so that even more people can experience it. We want fans of serious horror games on every platform to know that developers like us will always be there to create powerful narratives for them” says Chris Darril, Author and Creative Director of Remothered.

“We can’t wait to show Nintendo fans that they also have access to a deep, terrifying, survival-horror experience. We are not only very proud of our unique position as a successor to classic survival horror games, but also one of the few to bring that genre to the Switch.”, says Antonio Cannata, CEO and Co-founder of Stormind Games.

The story is rich of unpredictable plot-twists, but it is touching at the same time. Psychology plays a huge role within the game: heroes and enemies are atypical and the line between good and evil is blurred. The development of the game is identical to that of a film narration, where the player perfectly identifies himself with the character.

For the trilogy’s debut, Chris Darril rounded up some of the most important professionals in the videogame industry. The soundtrack of “Remothered: Tormented Fathers” is composed by Nobuko Toda (“Metal Gear Solid”, “Kingdom Hearts”, “Halo”, “The Evil Within”) and Luca Balboni (who wrote the music for feature films such as “Mine” and “Watch Them Fall”). The voice over actors for the English version are Danielle McRae (“League of Legends”, “World of Warcraft: Cataclysm”, “StarCraft Universe”), Lani Minella (“Mass Effect 3”, “The Last of Us”, “StarCraft”) and Adam Harrington (“The Wolf Among Us”, “The Walking Dead”, “Tales of Monkey Island”, “League of Legends”, “Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Shadow Vanguard”).

The cinematic vocation of “Remothered: Tormented Fathers” is the most distinctive feature of the game. The plot is structured, organized and conceived according to the narrative flow of a film: the await, the climax, the dramatic event, the epilogue. The characters, who have the features of real actors, are perfectly characterized thanks to the motion capture technology that lends realistic and peculiar movements. The player experiments and learns from the unfolding of the events and from the suggestions that follow, just like in a tv series. Furthermore, you can recognize a couple movie quotes in the cutscenes, which enrich the plot and the gameplay.

Key Features:

  • Many ways to survive - The endless combinations of game dynamics make the experience available to every gamer: stealth, action, strategic, hide&run. Deceive your stalker and block him in another area of the house. Attack your enemy and make your items more powerful. Carefully study the behaviour of your stalker and his path. Don’t get too close to your enemy, act like an unperceivable shadow, hiding yourself from his sight. Or just mix these dynamics together.
  • Psychological plot - Characters in the story are everyday people who turn themselves into scary monsters.
  • Movie-like cutscenes - Thanks to his impressive direction, Chris Darril puts into play a story rich of complex life-like characters.
  • Audio clues - Use the soundtrack and the 3D audio sound effects to understand when your stalkers are getting closer.
  • No health bars - Your body is the only way to understand how you are doing.
  • Realistic puzzles - Environments and characters have been conceived to be realistic and credible.
  • Top-notch soundtrack - Nobuko Toda and Luca Balboni wrote the music for the game.
  • Real-time loading - Explore the mansion without worrying about empty moments or boring loading times.

Currently available on PS4, Xbox One and PC, Remothered: Tormented Fathers is coming to Nintendo Switch on July 26, 2019.
