Today, the team at CBE Software are both pleased and proud to finally launch their tale of psychological horror, Someday You’ll Return, for Windows PCs. Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions are planned for later this year.
Five years ago, Lukas (Medek, CBE Software co-founder) and I came up with an idea. We wanted to set our next game into our Czech homeland, populate it with local legends and folklore and show the world places we experienced as children. We wanted gamers to experience how it feels to walk through the beautiful nature of our country while experiencing very Jungian psychological horror.
It has taken five years since that fateful decision to bring you Someday You’ll Return, a game about family, home, and relationships but also about the intimate fears we all have. We hope you enjoy it.Jan Kavan, CBE Software co-founder
Someday You’ll Return is a narrative-driven, psychological horror game with intimate concepts of fatherhood, fears, lies, and the refusal to accept one’s past. As Daniel, you search for your missing daughter, Stela. While trying to find her, you’re forced by events to return to a place that you swore never to return to, the ancient Moravian forests.
While the story contains strong horror elements it’s not always the most obvious monsters that are the most frightening. Your survival skills and quick wits may advance your search, but all the while malevolent forces rise up against you keeping you and Stela apart. As your search leads deep into both the woods and your mind, it reveals secrets that should have stayed buried.
Where are you, Stela?
About Someday You’ll Return
Someday You’ll Return takes place in scenic areas of the Czech Republic, with well-known landmarks to capture the atmosphere of its Bohemian nature. Using a typical Czech forest setting, which is different from Scandinavian or American forests, creates a unique mood for players. The referenced locations and mythos in the game are ancient with some of the tales in Someday You’ll Return dating back to the 9th century.
