'The Caretaker' Gets Release Date - Screens & Trailer

Set in the modern day, players must survive the aftermath of a sabotaged Research Power Facility horribly mutating the inhabitants of a small city.

Exploring human ignorance, regret and pride, The Caretaker unveils its plot through the lives of fallen victims and the encounters of failed experimentation.

Survive this nightmarish aftermath by exploring Red Chapel Town. Search your way through its streets and buildings for anything you can use to keep you alive and to keep you moving. Fight your way through hideous creatures hellbent on making you their next meal all while uncovering what the hell happened…

They let you out of your cell… they didn’t even tell you why.
There's a cloud of black and grey filling the sky and the emergency siren is deafening.
No one even cares that you’re there, like you don’t even exist. They all seem so… preoccupied.
Cars are turned over, some even on fire. Blood stains on the walls and concrete too.
What do you care… they opened the door… now your free

Search city streets, alleyways, yards, buildings, and sewers to find various needed items and answers.

Make your way through Red Chapel by deciphering puzzles and using hidden key items.

Blast through hideous and unnatural creations through a mix of gun play and quick thinking.

“I’ve always loved the Survival Horror Genre, but most games are in third or first person. I wanted to experience the same thrill from a new point of view. I played with the idea of blending it with a top-down style of gameplay and found that the blend was received rather well. The narrative was inspired from exaggerating on my own personal experiences. I really wanted to tell a story that showed the cause and affect of someone’s arrogance and ambition.”

At launch players will be able to try and escape the small city of Red Chapel, a city in waste from an unknown disaster. Players will have to fight their way through roaming gangs of hideous creatures waiting to devour anything still breathing. Escaping depends on how well you explore and how well you manage what you can find. Uncover hidden items to be used on obstacles and decipher interactive puzzles to find their way out.

The Caretaker will be available for PC (Steam) on April 30, 2021.
