Early concept sketch

We at Thought Spike are driven by the desire to see rich, nuanced environments and strong story-oriented game-play. This means emotionally complex plots driven by player decisions. It means choice.

In our concept game, Alone, you will play as Hugh, lord of Darkholm castle, whose experiments with the occult have awakened something strange, and trapped him in an otherworld parallel to his own, where his fears and feelings take on tangible shape – a deeper darkness always at the edge of sight, always hunting him.

Wielding a mystic lantern, Hugh will explore Darkholm castle, and through it, his past, his connections with his family and friends, the annals of his heart and mind, to uncover the secret of the dark power that consumes his home, and hungers for his soul.
