The Orpheus Device is out now!

2020-11-03

Immerse yourself in Wraith: The Oblivion story with a free, voice-activated game, featuring multiple paths and endings, written by Richard Dansky (original Wraith: The Oblivion developer) and designed by Dave Grossman (LucasArts, Telltale Games).

The Martens are a tragic case. A suffering family, bound together by bitterness, resentment, and spite. Their restless spirits lurk in the house they inhabited years ago, when they were alive. They don’t communicate well with each other, but you, using stolen credentials to access a machine called The Orpheus Device, can speak with each of them. In this interactive exploratory story, you can explore the secrets the Martens took to their graves, learn how they died, and examine what forces still hold them. And then, just maybe, you can help.
