What Happened, a new first-person psychological horror game set in a high school and starring a high school student named Stiles, has been announced. It is due for release on PC via Steam in July, with console versions due out later.
Players “will guide high school student Stiles through the dark corridors of his own mind as he struggles with his demons, real and imagined,” according to Poland-based developer Genius Slackers (Katnappe will be publishing). “The mental realm that Stiles inhabits is unforgiving, with twisted memories lining the hallways of his mind. As players help Stiles solve puzzles and escape the clutches of his demons, the game will subtly respond to the empathy they show him.”
