A Haunting Reflection of One Man’s Grief Awaits Players of New Silent Hill and Stranger Things Inspired Horror Game from Solo Developer MysticDev and Publisher DreadXP
DreadXP — an independent horror publisher and production company — announced today the launch of multiversal survival horror game Mirror Forge for Windows PC. Developed by Bobby “MystivDev” Mojsovski, and inspired by genre-favorites such as Silent Hill and Stranger Things, Mirror Forge blends sci-fi and psychological horrors into a game where players journey through realities constructed by fear, madness, and machinery.
Mirror Forge follows the troubled life of Thomas Jackson, who two years ago made the grave mistake of driving drunk. The inevitable crash tore Thomas’ life to pieces, putting his girlfriend Jill into a coma and killing their unborn child. Though Jill recovered, the ordeal destroyed their relationship. Wracked with unfathomable guilt, Thomas unsuccessfully attempted to end his own life. Things started to look up after Thomas pursued professional help, but tragedy struck again when Thomas lost his job — his one last connection to a normal life.
With the trauma of Thomas’ past once again haunting him, Thomas sought solace from his ex-girlfriend in a vain effort to rekindle what was since lost. But Jill, a journalist, was nowhere to be found. His only clue: footage of her last report. Missing children, a place called Devil’s Womb Canyon, and a mysterious blue explosion. Little did Thomas know, his nightmare had only just begun…
In Mirror Forge, players must travel between alternate dimensions wreathed in darkness that are occupied by terrible, unearthly beings. Using mirrors to cross between these realms, players will experience a variety of familiar and bizarre environments — from gloomy, narrow apartments to plagued towns, ancient houses, and corrupted science facilities. Thomas is defenseless, so players must utilize their wits to solve puzzles, evade creatures, and piece together the source of Jill’s disappearance and the otherworldly occurrences Thomas is subjected to. Depending on choices made throughout the game, Thomas and Jill’s story can end very differently.
Mirror Forge Key Features:
- The Evil Outside: Experience a surreal story that includes parallel dimensions and ancient Mesopotamian gods that have given life to monsters symbolically designed to represent Thomas’ inner turmoil
- The Journey is Half the Battle: Travel between dimensions using mirrors and utilize ancient artifacts to reveal the mysteries of another world, stun enemies, and solve puzzles
- Down the Rabbit Hole: Explore both enclosed and open-world environments as you seek answers to the disappearance of your ex
