About


Hello there! The campaign will be relaunched in the near future.  To view development updates and news of when it will be relaunched, see here:


 Thank you for all the support!







Relapse the Neverland is a narrative driven horror game made by text, art, love, and more importantly, unfolding paths of choices that unravel the character's lives and of an unlucky girl, in the player's hands.  There are multiple outcomes for both, the characters and the Playable Character, depending on your involvement as the player. 

The game will focus on exploration, story, and heavily on puzzles. There is a heavy theme of correcting past mistakes and repeating cycles. Everything you do matters. 





                                     I hope that you enjoy the prototype demo!



The game will be on PC(platforms such as steam), with goals of being able to bring it to              Nintendo Switch, and any other platforms if suggested enough.


What will the stretch goals be?


A. Future  game content that will be made and given to all backers for free!

B. Translations and porting the game to other platforms such as Nintendo Switch.



It's 1942, England. You take the role of a former waif named Anna, who receives a strange letter from the orphanage she grew up in beckoning her back to it. 

With lost memories due to trauma; Anna seeks to learn who wrote the letter and why post five years after the events of what transpired at Neverland Orphanage does it return to haunt her? What actually happened?











Enemies - Some patrol certain areas of the house, others will be active later throughout the story. One specifically will follow you throughout the game. The Enemies are part of the puzzle in the grand scheme of the game. On a higher difficulty, they will remember what you do and learn from it.

Time -  As things get  heated up in the game, you will be put against an enemy we face every single day. Time. You will have 24 in-game hours to successfully finish the main mission of the game. Don't like the pressure? Do not worry, you can turn this mechanic off in the options by switching to an easier difficulty in the final version of the game!

Relapsing - Once you acquire the lute; playing the correct songs on the lute will allow you to perform certain core mechanics in the game,  such as temporarily slowing down time. One other notable mechanic is allowing you to return to your first hour at the orphanage. Allowing the player to create new solutions for puzzles or change outcomes. Every piece can and will shift accordingly.

Puzzles - The game is very much puzzle based, The introduction of the Lute allows for more complex puzzles and reactions within the game. Time itself is a part of the puzzle.

Choices - Choices will be very present, however, most choices can be amended with the use of the lute. The game will keep track of your use of the lute and it will alter your ending. Choices will also tie in with puzzles and how you solve them. Oh..  don't forget not to show the letter to anyone! 





Hi! My name is Cristyn Jordin.

Relapse the Neverland is my love project, I am the sole developer and creator for Relapse the Neverland! 

I started programming and writing stories during my high school days, I always felt drawn to art, fantasy,  and video games. I have always been a gamer girl since my youth and share fond memories in classic horror games like Silent Hill, Clock Tower, Resident Evil, and many others. This is my love letter to the genre and to the gaming community.  

All my life I have been told that I am stubborn, I will do everything in my power to make sure Relapse the Neverland succeeds and more importantly, create a fun and exciting experience for gamers everywhere.


 Contact Me:  You can contact me through Discord !

For the press: Presskit 





The shirts are currently hand-made by me, that's right! I really am a one woman team,for now! The  shirts will be made and shipped when the game is near completion.  Shirts will eventually be more available when I have more resources and help available to me.



I am estimating full release of RELAPSE THE NEVERLAND by Spring 2020.  

 Your contributions will make continued development of this game possible.

I care so very much about this project and I very much appreciate the opportunity to make this story and characters come to life; with a lot more coming from me in the future.

Risks and challenges

The Timeline for rewards will be when the game is near launch date. The only risk is the game getting delayed, it's not going anywhere; I want it to be the best it can be. Budgeting will include licensing and fees.
