Draugen – New First-Person Survival Horror for Xbox One?

Draugen concept web

Red Thread Games has announced that the Norwegian Film Institute has awarded them with a $144,000 grant for a brand new first-person survival horror game entitled “Draugen”.

Draugen is set amongst the deep fjords and towering mountains of Norway’s awe-inspiring west coast during the 1920’s. The game is a dark and disturbing journey into the pitch black heart of Norwegian national romanticism, as seen through the eyes of an American nature photographer, botanist and entomologist. The story – inspired by Scandinavian literature, legends and fairytales, as well as Norse mythology and the Icelandic sagas delves into the deepest, darkest secrets of a remote fishing community where every single soul has mysteriously vanished.

As the player explores the tiny settlement, gathering clues and memories, and unearthing the truth behind a terrible tragedy, they will learn more about the history of the village and its inhabitants. And they will come to see that behind even the most innocent of facades lurks the potential for malice.

But there is more to this place than meets the eye.

From time to time, a woman in black can be spotted in the distance. Who is she, and what is her connection to this place? Who is the little girl singing broken lullabies as the sky begins to darken? And when night falls, and those last few, precious drops of kerosene in the lamp feed a fragile, flickering flame, what hides out there in the darkness and in the cold, black sea?

Discover the clues. Uncover the memories. Decipher the past. Survive the night.

Draugen – Norwegian, meaning “the Draug” – is an undead creature from Norse mythology. The original Norse meaning of the word is ghost, but unlike traditional ghosts the Draug has a corporeal body and physical abilities. Draug reside in their watery graves, guarding the treasures and secrets that were buried with them. And they will protect those secrets at any cost…

Draugen is currently in development for PC/Mac/Linux and next-generation consoles.
