CHARACTERS

Rosemary Reed


Fascinating, smart, resolute, Rosemary is a 35 year old mysterious woman with ambiguous intentions and attitude. What actually brings her to investigate on the truth behind the disappearing of Celeste and the undisclosed past of Dr. Felton could be more terrifying than the premise itself.

Richard Felton


Affected by a terrible disease, gotten worse with age, Dr. Felton left his notarial career and began gardening as a hobby. Even though he looks like a harmless and sick person at first, Dr. Felton hides a dreadful secret: his addiction to hypnosis cycles with drugs used to cure his disease and forget an uncomfortable past.

Celeste Felton


Disappeared out of the blue during the fall of 1971, Celeste and her story became a news topic for the following two years. Celeste’s disappearance under obscure circumstances hides something more complex behind it. Her peculiar “nickname” Jennifer is arguably the most useful hint to solve the mystery.

Ms. Gloria


Gloria is a shy and dull woman almost in her forties working as the personal nurse of Dr. Felton. Although her generic and faint appearance, she probably knows the truth behind Felton’s spouse and their disappearing daughter and she hides it because she fears for her own life.

Red Nun


Belonging to a very small group of cloistered nuns, the Red Nun appears as a threatening figure in red covered by moths and armed with a dangerous spear. She is probably the only survivor of a terrifying fire, which destroyed the cloister Cristo Morente.

Arianna Felton


Married to Richard Felton, Arianna is a quiet and lonely woman fallen into a sort of catatonic state since the disappearing of her daughter Celeste. What did make her retiring to private life?

REMOTHERED EARLY ACCESS TRAILER

THE GAME

Remothered: Tormented Fathers is an authentic and interactive psychological horror game with strong cinematic inspiration and extreme gameplay.
Wicked horror story

The plot is terrifying but touching at the same time, the characters are created in the image and likeness of some movie stars. What’s more, heroes and enemies are atypical and the line between good and evil is blurred. The development of the game is identical to that of a film narration, where the player perfectly identifies himself with the character.

Epic, inspiring music

Remothered: Tormented Fathers will involve the acclaimed musician and composer Nobuko Toda (Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, The Evil Within, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Halo 5: Guardians).

 

THE AUTHOR

Born in Catania, Italy, Chris Darril deals with cinema and video games from an early age. He becomes famous in the indie gaming market for the project Remothered, inspired by the atmosphere of the cult horror saga Clock Tower.

He attracts the attention of the Japanese game designers Hifumi Kono (Clock Tower: The First Fear, Michigan: Report from Hell, Infinite Space), who decides to involve him in Project Scissors: Nightcry, with Masahiro Ito (designer of the horror series Silent Hill) and Takashi Shimizu (author and director of the cinematic saga The Grudge/Ju-on).

Between 2013 and 2014 he directed the project from the Canadian team Psychoz Interactive Forgotten Memories: Alternate Realities, an old-school survival horror distributed on iTunes for mobile devices since April of 2015. This became a sales success, received the critic’s acclaim and was nominated for 4 CVA (Canadian Videogame Awards).

While Forgotten Memories: Alternate Realities is now expected in the remastered version on Sony Playstation 4, Playstation Vita, PC; Chris Darril is working on several projects: among others Tormented Fathers, the first title of Remothered.
