Target Release Date: September 28, 2015

Description:

To descend down these steps is to descend into madness… Stairs is a first-person atmospheric psychological horror game that takes players through the stories of three missing people as seen through the eyes of journalist Christopher Adams.

The stories you will experience are inspired by real-life horrific events, twisted into an original intertwined tale of terror, despair and sadness. Using their camera and journal, players set out to unravel the grizzly mysteries behind Valerie Berkley, a high school graduate; James Reed, a young businessman; and Jean Jowars Remens, a charismatic pastor. What happened to them? What do they all have to do with each other? Just head down the stairs into the darkness and discover the truth for yourself… if you dare.

Early Impressions

Stairs, even way back in its early pre-alpha state, had proven to be hugely popular in the YouTuber community with celebrity gamers such as PewDiePie, Markiplier and ProJared doing videos that have reached over 6 million views just between the three of them; not counting the views of the hundreds of other Let’s Players who were drawn to the early demo. The GameJolt demo has been downloaded over 130,000 times with almost 400,000 profile views. Note that both ProJared and Markiplier state that they feel Stairs is how true psychological horror games should be done (see for yourself in the videos below).
