Behind-the-Scenes Video Released as Psychological Action Thriller PAST CURE Gears Up for February 23 Launch

Get ready to have your mind blown. Psychological action thriller PAST CURE, the first game from independent developer Phantom 8, is headed to Windows PC, PlayStation 4 and XBox One on February 23!

PAST CURE is a dark tale that follows Ian, a former soldier turned lab experiment who must face his demons — both inside and out. Search for the missing pieces of Ian’s mind in a game where action and stealth-based gameplay meets mind-bending telekinetic abilities; unravel the mystery and explore a world where the line between dreams and reality is dangerously thin.

The developers behind PAST CURE — which totaled just eight people during development — have also today released a new behind-the-scenes video that explores just how this small team produced such an intense, cinematic and high-quality narrative-driven experience.

PAST CURE puts you in the role of Ian, a former elite soldier, whose story begins at his brother’s safehouse where he’s hidden himself away from the world and his nightmares. After years of experimentation, coupled with years of torture in prison, Ian is now telekinetic and can also manipulate time. These powers take their toll on Ian, whose mind is fractured; often drifting between reality and hallucinogenic states. With the help of his Brother, Ian sets out on a path of revenge and discovery, not knowing what lies around the next corner.

 

Simon Gerdesmann, Managing Director, Phantom 8, said, “Developed by a team of only eight, we aim to showcase that desire, talent and ambition can help you deliver a title that stands apart from what’s traditionally expected from an Indie studio. PAST CURE is our first title, and having secured multiple awards throughout its development, the team is excited to finally have the game out in the wild.”

PAST CURE will be available soon for pre-order and purchase on Steam, Green Man Gaming, Fanatical and other leading digital distribution platforms. Bonus content for digital and physical pre-orders will be announced soon. The physical retail release of PAST CURE can be pre-ordered now for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One at a wide range of retailers, including Amazon, Best Buy, Gamestop and Target.

PAST CURE will release worldwide on February 23, 2018 for $29.99/£29.99/€29.99. For more information about PAST CURE, please visit https://phantom8.studio.
