Someday You'll Return

Someday You'll Return is a "narrative-driven psychological horror" game that places you in the shoes of Daniel. Daniel's daughter, Stela, is a runaway and you're trying to find her. In the process, you will take Daniel through places that he "swore never to return to."

One such place is the Moravian forests and apparently some bad stuff went down in Daniel's past in this location. This new trailer, entitled "Remembrance" shows how Daniel will have to deal with these events from his past.

Someday You'll Return is being developed by the Czech based development studio CBE Software.

While the story contains strong horror elements it’s not always the most obvious monsters which are the most frightening. While your survival skills and quick wits may advance your search, malevolent forces rise up against you keeping you and Stela apart. As your search leads deep into both the woods and your mind, it reveals secrets that should have stayed buried.

There are nightmares you can’t fight and win. Some of them … could be yours. Where are you, Stela?
Someday You'll Return is currently slated for a Fall 2019 release window. The current release platforms include PC via Steam, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Included below is the Remembrance trailer, new screenshots, and a bit more about the game.

About Someday You'll Return
Where are you, Stela?
It’s not the first time she ran away. But you’re uneasy … this time feels so different. Long ago, you swore never to return here. And now, she has dragged you back. Your search leads deep into ancient Moravian forests and reveals secrets that should have stayed buried. Someday You’ll Return deals with intimate concepts of fatherhood, fears, lies and refusal to accept one’s past.

Someday You’ll Return takes place in beautiful scenic areas of the Czech Republic. While they are not exact duplicates, CBE Software desired to capture the atmosphere of Bohemian nature. The team places well known landmarks into a virtual map, which are discoverable by players and which the team personally visited many times. A typical Czech forest setting has been used as a reference which is different from other real world locations like Scandinavian or American forests. This creates a unique mood for players. The referenced locations and mythos in the game are ancient. Some of the tales mentioned in Someday You’ll Return date back to the 9th century.
