London, 1886.

One after the other, prominent bankers, lawyers and politicians are being killed in a succession of brutal murders. A serial killer has emerged from the shadows but remains elusive and furtive, stealthily avoiding arrest while leaving cryptic clues for anyone who has the mind to tackle them.

Journalist Horace Emerson is assigned to cover the unspeakable crimes in the hope that he can solve the puzzle. However, he soon finds that the killer shows a special interest in his journalistic work. Will Horace be able to solve the mystery before the murderer finds him, or will a more sinister entity, surfacing from Horace's past mean even more danger for the people of London?


This point-and-click psychological thriller is set amidst the fog and grime of Victorian London accompanied by sublime pixel-art and augmented by a stunning musical score from a renowned composer.

TBD - expected release in Q2 2018. Demo available soon.
The Sixteenth Promise will be released on every major online game distributor for PC, Mac and Linux.
