  • DISCOVER CLUES AND ABANDONED ITEMS - piece together the troubled history of the school and its past as a hospital.

  • YOUR PHONE REVEALS THE TRUTH - use the camera of your phone or tablet to find clues or discover hidden texts. Some things are best left in the dark.
  • SHATTERED MEMORIES - Place items you find in sports to reveal moments in time, take a glimpse into the past. Find out the truth.

Explore a fully immersive first person experience, where you play a father in search of his lost daughter in an abandoned school. Use a torch, your phone and other items to guide yourself through the multiple floors and rooms of the school.

• You will face many challenges in your search for your daughter. A myriad of puzzles await you - solve them to proceed and gain a better understanding of the dark history of St. Mary's.

Dark Day Games believes that adding weapons to a horror game takes away any semblance of fear and often ruins the immersive aspects of the game. ONE FINAL BREATH is about pure survival. You either run or you die. Move quickly to avoid death.

One Final Breath is being developed using the Unreal Engine 4, which we find to be an incredible game engine. The engine gives us enormous freedom when it comes to graphical fidelity and technical quality, while we focus on refining ideas and gameplay.

• We are working day and night on this project to make our dreams come true. We don’t want to end up with a poor game.

One Final Breath has undergone multiple iterations over time, in order to make the best horror experience possible. We don't want the story to fall flat due to graphical hiccups, or have the game-play feel stale because of poor storytelling. We have commissioned the services of professional voice actors who have an extensive history in video game voice overs.

 

Our aim is to build a world that feels unique and real - creating environments that look as accurate to the time period as possible, using information we've gathered about real abandoned hospitals.

One Final Breath will also feature foreign language localization in the form of multiple foreign language subtitles in-game. If our budget allows for it, we will also hire voice actors to re-dub the game in languages other than English.

Our goal is to make this title available on as many platforms as possible; this Kickstarter campaign will help us reach that high standard that console players crave. Our target consoles are Xbox One and PlayStation 4 along with Steam.

Here we are showing off the game using Oculus Rift. We have a sample walk-through of a small section of the game, mind you it’s still in early stages and we do apologies for the frame rate as we have not yet optimized for VR, hopefully we can add this feature with our stretch goal.

We are adding an option to play the game in third person, to test this theory we played around with that idea. And here are the results, having this option may give the game a different feel which could work well for those who are not fans of the First Person Mode.

  • Thankfully due to our team receiving the Console kits early we have been able to lower our goal a lot from our last campaign, and turning this horror into an episodic game allows us to release into sections. Which lets us focus on story easier and makes developing cheaper which in return allows us to lower our goal, why ask for more than we need? Which is a good reason to restart our campaign from the previous time? We don’t want to take more then we need, so we tweaked and re did the math which left us with a more reasonable goal, along with a better stretch goal plan.
  • Final Breath Soundtrack – We take pride in the music that we chose to include in this project, and now you can too. Pledge $15 and above to receive the game's soundtrack, consisting of piano solos and dark, creepy atmospheric tracks. The soundtrack will also include a little back-story, lines used in the game, plus a few hidden extras for you to discover. Below are some samples from this 20 track collection.
  • Final Breath Art Book - Pledge $30 and above to receive a digital copy or $230 and above to receive a physical copy of the One Final Breath art book! The art book includes concept art used in creating the game as well as several concepts that (probably) won’t make the cut – as is always the case when making a game! It will also include various tidbit information about the world of One Final Breath, as well as the backstory of how things came to be.
  • We’ll also sign the art book for you (unless you don’t want us to!)
  • Final Breath Shirts - Pledge $80 and above to receive the One Final Breath T-shirt! Coming in many sizes, each T-shirt will showcase a highly detailed design that will not fade in sunlight nor wash out after a couple of times through the washing machine. We hate poorly made T-shirts, which is why we’ll give you a quality T-shirt to thank you for your support!
  • Hard Copy - Get your hands on a hard copy case, this will include the game code, small basic art book in the case and will be signed by the whole team plus as a special thank you we will customize it to have your name on the front page of the booklet, but hurry as signed copies are limited.
  • The cover art may change on the final release.
  • Physical Figurine - Pledge $299 or more and receive a limited figurine, featuring a twisted character that you soon learn about as you progress further into St Mary’s, this figure is a seven inches in height, with a solid base. This figure has been hand designed to get the right position and color.
  • Framed Poster - Get your hands on a poster for the game, we have a few different designs, which you can choose from, with the option of having it signed by the team. Each poster comes with a basic frame, choose from white or black and grey.

We want to make One Final Breath the best experience it can be. We aim to focus on this game 24/7 once funded, and every dollar helps us to make this a better game. The more we raise the bigger the game will become, with more depth, more platforms, more jumps and more everything. We plan to update One Final Breath for years with free backstory DLC, so that players can always experience something new, always taking into consideration the feedback from the community.

Funding will allow us to build this into something amazing, from the ideas of the team and the feedback from the community, without relying on publishers who may not have the same vision as us, We have tried a few times to find success, so we have taken advice from the fans and the community in what needed to change, or what should be added, an now we have come back hoping to get this project we love into the light for all to play and experience.

We are using well known and experienced voice actors to help tell this story, but they don't work for free, and building this world from the ground up making it unique an beautiful takes time, funding will allow us to focus 100% which will speed up the process extremely, without worrying about the wolves at the door. And to all those who backed us in the past we thank you greatly and will be included in this campaign with a cool bonus, we appreciate everything that the fans have done for us! In the past we had a good campaign which helped us pay for voice work, over a year ago, but sadly due to legal reason we had to remake, as we could not use the likeness or voices of the actors. This put a big setback on our project. But we took a year to adjust and not let it get us down!

Risks and challenges

We are currently in the pre-alpha stage of game development. As is always the case with game development, delays may occur but we’ll do our best to keep them to a minimum. If a delay does happen, you can rest assured that it is for the best of intentions and only taken to improve your gameplay experience.
