Kidnapped – A Dynamic Psychologically Indie Horror Game, now on Steam Greenlight

July 06, 2014 – South Wales, UK – Deceptive Games are pleased to announce its first game “Kidnapped” starting with Windows desktop PCs is now on steam greenlight.

“As an indie developer, it’s important to get our game out to as many people as possible. Steam greenlight is an excellent way to achieve this.” said Gavin Powell, game director for Deceptive Games. “It also helps us receive vital feedback on how the game is shaping up from a player’s point of view. All feedback is welcome, be good or bad, it helps us improve the game and us as a developer.”

Kidnapped tells the tale of Sabastian Lee from Sterling City, Scotland. Sabastian vanished mysteriously without a trace and was never seen again. You take on the role of Sabastian and discover the truth to what happened in the winter of 1992.

Traverse through a spooky two hundred year old manor, dark damp caves, an eerie forest full of wildlife and an old majestic church. Kidnapped is a psychologically story-driven adventure horror game, with a great emphasis on exploration, puzzle-solving and combat. More than fifty percent of the objects in the game can be interactive with, whether examined, used, or picked up. The game’s aim is to continuously unnerve the player by dynamically changing the game world as the player progresses, and to tell a rich story that stays with the player long after completion.
