Somnipathy horror adventure point and click game launches on Linux, Mac, and Windows PC. Thanks to developer Tearcell Game Studio for creating an original survival experience. Available now on Steam.
If you’re intrigued by engaging stories, have an appreciation for visually captivating designs, and get that rush from slowly unfolding horrors. Then you’ll want to hear about Somnipathy. This is Tearcell Games’ very first creation and it’s launching today.
In Somnipathy you will step into the shoes of Aggy. On the surface, she’s like many of us – trying to find her place in a vast, often uncaring world. However, her journey launches with a dark turn when she starts to encounter what many dread. These are the terrors that lurk in the shadows of sleeplessness.
The Somnipathy story is crafted with finesse by James Thomasos. A name you might recognize from masterpieces like “The Last One to Speak” or “Rusty Fears 6”. This guy knows how to weave a tale, so you’re in for a narrative feat. While the storyline is the backbone, the ambiance plays a huge role in setting the mood. A big chunk of that setting comes from the aural magic spun by Mark Benis. If you like the beats of “Everybody Wham Wham” or been lost in the musical realms of “Lamplight City” and “Rosewater”, you know what I’m talking about.
