Ragnar Tørnquist of developer Red Thread Games has teased their first-person horror game, which they describe as "HP Lovecraft meets Dostoyevsky," or perhaps, "Gone Home meets Amnesia." They call it Draugen.
Red Thread is busy developing Dreamfall Chapters, the sequel to Dreamfall: The Longest Journey. Tørnquist created the series, as well as The Secret World and Anarchy Online.
The Norwegian developer is made up of a lot of former Funcom employees. Dreamfall Chapters successfully ended a Kickstarter campaign with over $1.5 million.
Now Red Thread are also working on a first-person horror title set in 1920s Norway, which has been funded by the Norwegian Film Institute with 850,000 NOK, which is roughly $144,000. Now they've released the first glimpse of the game with a teaser trailer. Draugen is scheduled for next year supporting VR, and will soon head to Kickstarter.
