Winner of multiple awards, from Best Storytelling at White Nights, Public Choice Award at Game Connection 2017 and more, Past Cure sees you play as Ian, a former special ops soldier, unsure of his surroundings, and desperate to make sense of the last few years of his life. A victim of experimentation and torture in prison, Ian’s mind has become fractured. His captors left him scarred with unrelenting nightmares, visions and new unstable and largely unexplainable powers such as time manipulation and telekinesis. You will drift between reality and hallucinogenic states, trying to make sense of things around you and setting out on a path of revenge and discovery.
“We’ve been delighted with the positive response to PAST CURE from gamers around the world, and we’re excited to finally see people playing what has been our passion to create for the last two years,” said Simon Gerdesmann, Phantom 8’s Managing Director. “To achieve what we have as a small, eight-person first-time development studio makes us immensely proud. And, we’re not finished yet; there’s more to come from the PAST CURE universe, as we’ll announce soon.”
