One Final Breath Crowdfunded For Consoles

By Mark Delaney, 2 years ago
Among the many trends in current day gaming, two of them are the renaissance of survival horror and the crowdfunded path to development. Dark Day Interactive's game, One Final Breath, is an example of both of these trends. Funding goals have been met for the game to expand beyond its PC aspirations and is now headed to consoles. The survival horror tells the story of a divorcee, struggling with alcoholism and in search of his runaway daughter in an abandoned hospital turned boarding school.

Originally designed as a first-person experience, the studio is currently experimenting with offering a third-person mode as well. The game follows a similar structure to recent horror hits like Outlast and the Amnesia series by removing all fighting and shooting mechanics. Running away and hiding are your only options. Dark Day believes that adding weapons "takes away any semblance of fear". The story will be told episodically, with the premiere episode titled "Roll Call". The full season of story content is expected to cost around $29, said the studio, although they didn't mention how many episodes that would involve.

Using flashlights and whatever other light sources you may come across, you'll explore dark corridors of a school with an even darker history. Some sequences will reveal flashbacks in the the building's twisted past, as well. In addition to the episodic content, free backstory DLC is planned following the game's launch, which currently has no set date. The game is in alpha with a playable demo on PC for those interested.

We'll keep you updated with future progress as this game soon makes it to Xbox One, publisher-free.
