Red Thread reveals first look at Draugen

"It's Gone Home meets Amnesia," says Tornquist.

Ragnar Tornquist's studio Red Thread debuted the first proper look at Draugen, its first-person survival horror game, releasing a trailer first shown at this weekend's EGX Rezzed.

During Saturday's developer session, Tornquist primarily showed off Dreamfall Chapters, the impressive looking continuation of the Dreamfall series that's coming to PC, Mac and an undisclosed next-gen platform.

Red Thread's other game, Draugen, is set on the coast of Norway in the 1920s, and it looks to combine exploration with slow-burning horror. "It's HP Lovecraft meets Dostoyevsky," said Tornquist, "Or Gone Home meets Amnesia."

Draugen's due out next year, will be supporting VR systems such as Oculus Rift - and is due to head to Kickstarter soon, with a 2015 release date scheduled.
