2Dark is the creative vision of four game industry veterans. Frederick Raynal, Yael Barroz, Thierry Platon and Sophie-Anne Bled each offer rich experience in the field. The group assembled Gloomywood an indie game development studio based in Lyon, France. 2Dark will mark the first video game release for the game development studio.
2Dark is a stealth adventure game that will feature ten levels of intense gameplay. The title pays homage to Survival Horror of yesteryear. This upcoming debut would encompass stylized visuals. 2Dark will consist of pixels and voxels rendered with modern 3-D applications. Intricate sprite animations will mirror a nostalgic era.
In November 2014, Gloomywood reached their crowdfunding goal for 2Dark with success. More than one thousand supporters offered their support on the project. What makes the game special is not the team behind the concept but the medium itself. 2Dark will offer a unique plan of infiltration, action adventure, and team management. The stealth element for 2Dark lies by avoiding “sadistic and bloodthirsty serial killers”. The game also offers mystery with its hints of puzzle solving objectives.
The Developers at Gloomywood used the company name as a backdrop to 2Dark . The story takes place in a “sinister and macabre town” called Gloomywood. Serving as the protagonist is the character; Mr. Smith. Smith is a former detective thrust into solving missing children cases. The youngsters were kidnapped and are hidden throughout the town.
The Synopsis to 2Dark reads as follows:
In 2Dark, you guide former detective Mr. Smith in his quest to find and free his kidnapped children in the sinister and macabre town of Gloomywood. During your rescue, you must avoid sadistic and bloodthirsty serial killers, and you will be called on to confront unnameable horrors lurking in the shadows. Discover the terrifying secrets that linger in this accursed town…
2Dark will release sometime in 2016. The game will be available for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 platforms. A price for Gloomywood’s Horror debut game wasn’t revealed. The developers of 2Dark issued the following statement on the game schematics. They stated that 2Dark:
