Someday You’ll Return does seem like interesting new game, one that doesn’t rely on the usual bells and whistles. Powered by the Unreal Engine 4, Someday You’ll Return is a story-driven game. Feast your eyes on the reveal trailer above.
Eerie, to say the least.
You play as Daniel, a father whose daughter, Stela, never came home. This is not the first time his daughter ran away, and Daniel is forced by certain events to go into the Moravian forests and reveal “secrets that should have stayed buried.” Eventually, Daniel begins to understand why Stela is trying so desperately to leave.
Here’s a bit more info about the story:
Someday You’ll Return deals with intimate concepts of fatherhood, fears, lies and refusal to accept one’s past. While the story contains strong horror elements it’s not always the most obvious monsters which are the most frightening.Follow Daniel’s through soaring, mystic Bohemian landscapes. For all their beauty, there is a quiet darkness. While your survival skills and quick wits might advance your search, malevolent forces rise up against you. There are nightmares you can’t fight and win. And some of them … could be your own.
