CBE Software has announced that Someday You’ll Return, their narrative-driven game of psychological horror, will launch on April 14, 2020 for Windows PC. Xbox and PlayStation versions are scheduled for development later this year.
To celebrate the announcement of their PC release date, the team at CBE Software has released a chilling new trailer showing off gameplay as well as hints of the horrors you’ll encounter as you search for your missing daughter in Someday You’ll Return.
Someday You’ll Return is a narrative-driven psychological horror game with intimate concepts of fatherhood, fears, lies and refusal to accept one’s past. You play Daniel, father of Stela, your runaway daughter. While trying to find her, you’re forced by events to return to a place that you swore never return to, the ancient Moravian forests.
While the story contains strong horror elements it’s not always the most obvious monsters that are the most frightening. While your survival skills and quick wits may advance your search, malevolent forces rise up against you keeping you and Stela apart. As your search leads deep into both the woods and your mind, it reveals secrets that should have stayed buried.
About Someday You’ll Return
