Draugen – A Single-Player, First-person Fjord Noir Tale Of Suspense & Mystery!

Once in a while, I like to feature or talk about a game that grabs my interests and Draugen is that game. Now what caught my attention about Draugen was the fact that 1. it’s claiming to have a realistic and dynamic dialogue system with a living, breathing, independent companion, 2. it looks beautiful visually and has an interesting atmosphere to it and 3. it was co-founded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union so it could be something special.

About Draugen

From the studio that brought you Dreamfall Chapters, and the creative team behind The Longest Journey and The Secret World, comes a first-person psychological mystery set in 1920s Norway.

The year is 1923. You play Edward Charles Harden, an American traveller who’s come to Norway to find his missing sister. But you’re not alone: at every step of the way, Edward’s accompanied by his ward, Lissie; a gregarious, independent and enigmatic young woman. Together, you must explore this scenic coastal community — nestled amongst the fjords and mountains of rural Norway — in your search for Edward’s sister, and unearth the darkness that lies beneath the picturesque surface.

Draugen is in development and will be released in 2019. Please add the game to your Steam Wishlist to stay updated on the release date.
