12/20/2011 - Vivec Entertainment announce the release of their first game, Shadow of a Soul: Chapter I - a first person-survival horror game that immerses the player in a story rich in riddles, enigmas and terrifying horrors. In the first trailer, The Room, we are witnesses to the confusion and horror faced by a man as he records his final moments on tape.
“Shadow of a Soul: Chapter I” is the first in a planned trilogy. In the vein of traditional adventure games, players will need to solve puzzles, search for clues, and uncover the mysteries while hiding from various manifestations of ghosts.
Chapter I's story revolves around a thief named Jack who is on an industrial espionage mission to steal the blueprints of a new product. However, as he makes his way into the office complex, he discovers that there's much more to this place than meets the eye. As unnatural sounds and horrifying visions begins to unravel before his eyes, Jack begins to have the unnerving feeling that he has become the target of a malignant presence and he isn't allowed to leave... just yet. Jack's terrifying journey will lead him to several mysterious encounters that will leave their marks on his mind as well as his flesh.
"For me, Shadow of a Soul is all about creating the creepiest, and most shocking gaming experience. The goal of Chapter 1 is to dig the foundations for the following two chapters while telling a satisfying story in its own right. I’ve been blogging everyday about the development of the game and I’ll continue to do so until the release date. I invite everyone to check out the company blog (vivec3d.com/blog) to find out how the development is going, and everyone’s more than welcome to contribute their 2 cents," says Ferzan Kanat Aygen CEO of Vivec Entertainment.
