Fear, paranoia, fate - the best of horror and thriller merged in the multi-layered story of madness and forgotten, horrifying secrets.

The Beast Inside is a gripping new twist on thriller and survival horror genres, telling a multi-layered story about cryptanalyst discovering a hundred-year-old murder-mystery that not only remains unresolved, but also puts his very life at risk.

Adam, CIA cryptanalyst, leaves Boston and moves to the country with his wife, Emma. His handlers are afraid they won’t be able to keep him safe there, but Adam believes he needs a peaceful place in the woodland, to take a shot at military code and alter the course of the Cold War. As it turns out, this area is quite the opposite of a peaceful place...

In the attic Adam finds the hidden diary of Nicolas which, once opened, carries the nightmares of the past right into the present, putting the lives of both Adam and Emma in a great danger. How come the mysteries from Civil War era seem to be connected to what is happening during the Cold War?
Who was Nicolas, the man who lived in that house more than a hundred years ago?

The Beast Inside offers a gripping new twist on thriller and survival horror genres.
Long-buried secrets, personal tragedies and madness spanning more than a century. Story driven game merging horror and thriller. The Beast Inside seamlessly merges survival horror and thriller, offering gripping new twists in both genres.

Eh, lots of red flags with this one. $50k isn't nearly enough to develop a game of this scope and fidelity. In addition, the devs have apparently never made a game before. Finally, why do you have to pledge in order to get the demo? If anything, the demo should be available freely to convince people to pledge.

I agree. 50K? Are there like 2 people working on this? I mean, there IS a demo, so at least that's something.

The footage on their Kickstarter-page looks good but definitely not photorealistic. I think developers need to use different terms to describe graphical fidelity.

Looks pretty darn good, I am interested. I just might through a few bucks at them and see how this plays out.

This looks like a great candidate for VR.
