Someday You’ll Return is a narrative-driven psychological horror game with strong adventure elements. You play Daniel, father of Stela, your runaway daughter. While trying to find her, you’re forced by events to return to a place that you swore never return to, the ancient Moravian forests. In the new Remembrance trailer, Daniel deals with events from his past.
While the story contains strong horror elements it’s not always the most obvious monsters which are the most frightening. Interestingly, there is no combat in the game. While your survival skills and quick wits may advance your search, malevolent forces rise up against you keeping you and Stela apart. As your search leads deep into both the woods and your mind, it reveals secrets that should have stayed buried.
Someday You’ll Return takes place in beautiful scenic areas of the Czech Republic. While they are not exact duplicates, CBE Software desired to capture the atmosphere of Bohemian nature. The team places well known landmarks into a virtual map, which are discoverable by players and which the team personally visited many times. A typical Czech forest setting has been used as a reference which is different from other real world locations like Scandinavian or American forests. This creates a unique mood for players. The referenced locations and mythos in the game are ancient. Some of the tales mentioned in Someday You’ll Return date back to the 9th century.
Someday You’ll Return is in development for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, with a Fall 2019 launch window.
