PAST CURE | A Telekinetic Action Thriller.


In just over 20 days we shall be seeing the release of PAST CURE, an action thriller based on a man named Ian an ex-Elite soldier. Ian has telekinetic powers which came about whilst being tortured in prison for years he can also manipulate time. It kind of reminds me of Beyond Two Souls because of the monsters he see's and his powers. Ian is now hiding out in his brother's safehouse so he can hide away from the world. Unfortunately for Ian his powers take their toll on him and have fractured his mind, he is often stuck between reality and his hallucinations. He and his brother set out to take revenge, but where will this journey take them both? This game sounds like it has a mixture of both action and thriller which I really enjoy playing, I'm looking forward to seeing how we will be able to control Ian with his powers and how he has managed to stay sane after everything he was put through. Time manipulation will be an interesting feature to his powers, as we know Max from Life is Strange had to battle with a lot of feelings especially when it came to changing what happens each time she manipulates time.




I get a Heavy Rain kind of vibe from it, especially because Ian has a very similar likeness to Ethan Mars from Heavy Rain. Although it does have that feel to it Phantom 8 have made something unique and been able to create a very eye-catching game with a compelling storyline. I'm looking forward to seeing the gameplay for PAST CURE.



The team first started in late 2015 at their headquarters in Berlin which gives them their inspiration and drive, personally for me, it is inspiring how such a small team has developed a fantastic looking game. The small team of eight developed who developed PAST CURE used 3D scanning and motion capture technologies to develop the game and looks like it was developed by a team much bigger than 8. Simon Gerdsmann who is managing director of Phantom 8 said: "Developed by a team of only eight, we aim to showcase that desire, talent and ambition can help you deliver a title that stands apart from what’s traditionally expected from an Indie studio. PAST CURE is our first title and having secured multiple awards throughout its development, the team is excited to finally have the game out in the wild.”
