It’s been a long time coming but Dreamfall Chapters developer Red Thread Games’ intriguing first-person “fjord noir mystery”, Draugen, will finally arrive on Steam and GOG next week, on 29th May.

Draugen, which was first unveiled back in 2013, unfolds against the picturesque rural backdrop of 1920s Norway, and follows the tribulations of American traveller Edward Charles Harden and his “gregarious and enigmatic young ward” Lissie, as they search for Edward’s missing sister.

Despite originally being pitched as something closer to a survival horror game back in 2013 (Red Thread called it a “dark and disturbing journey into the pitch black heart of Norwegian national romanticism”), the Draugen of 2019 is more in the realm of psychological thriller. According to its developer, today’s Draugen “has moments of darkness and fear, mystery and suspense, but it also has beauty, peace and poetry.”
