With Past Cure‘s release at the end of February getting ever closer, independent developers Phantom 8 have decided to treat us with a behind-the-scenes video of how the 3rd person, cinematic stealth action game was made (the video is available below).
Announced today in a press release, the three-minute video takes you through the small team of personalities that worked on the game. The team talk about the passion for the project and how they wanted to exceed the expectations of what an ‘indie game’ is. Whats even more impressive is the fact that this is the team’s first title.
Past Cure is an action game with elements of both stealth gameplay and Survival horror. You play as Ian, an ex-military serviceman who was turned into a lab experiment. Here’s the bad news, these lab experiments have left Ian with memory loss. The good news, they have provided him with some pretty sweet telepathic abilities. Playing through Past Cure will see you hunt the people responsible for these experiments, all while trying to piece together the missing fragment of Ian’s memory.
Phantom 8 announced earlier this month that the game won’t overstay its welcome. They focused their attention on creating a story that can be in a couple of nights. They also went on to say that the game won’t offer a lot of replayability, instead, they want Past Cure to be a cinematic action game with a real impactful story – which is absolutely fine with us.
Past Cure is coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC on the 23rd February and will be available for £29.99/$29.99/€29.99. We’ve been following the game closely for the past year and have been so impressed by what we’ve seen we included the game in our 10 indie games to look out for in 2018. To get an insight into how Past Cure was created by a team of just 8 then check out the video below.
