A few months ago I came up with an idea for an open world horror shooter and immediately started to rack my brain about its design and elements. 

My intense behind the game is to show the negative side effects a policeman has to deal with when it comes to pulling a gun. Looking at it from a moral perspective lets the whole story lighten up the serious psychological consequences a gunshot may cause. 

The emotional atmosphere with its great composition in sound and vision really gets to you as well as the catching story line. Breathtaking and angst-inducing sequences that give you goose bumps are that certain something of Darkness Anomaly.  

Alertness has to be paid to every detail in this game, as every little counts in order not to pull your gun for the wrong reasons. Peoples behavior may vary often and some information you get might be important for your case. Of course there are also one's that are scared of you or try to kill you. Therefore you need to use your gun wisely while you discover the town and unforeseeable things happen to you. Darkness Anomaly will fascinate and capture you.

A strange place, a small town near Cleveland. A four-time ritual murder. Who would examine this place? No one would want to get dirty in a shit hole. But this place, its used to be a home of a detective, detective Nick Reeves. 

Yes this is my name. And this is the story of my end.

I used to call this place a home, fucking memories i thought they would never come up again. Who else they should send, a damn asshole, someone familiar with this fucking town. Yes, I‘ve pulled the short straw. It is a beautiful place, a big forest tended a side on a long river from the water source, where i used to pull of the clothes from the girls i‘ve got with. There was the appearance of a nice smalltown. A Facade, behind a pile of dirt full of liars and Ignorant congregants. Where it seems like the incest lasted for centuries, people never held more than a Twilight or Fifty Shades of Grey book in their hands. Rich, selfish housewifes with their fucking stare, judging on you. 

I used to be a good kid, believed in humanity. believed in good things in life. But nothing happens just as you would imagine. Things get complicated, times changed. My father lost his beloved job, and find his new one, Whisky. 

Fuck, perhaps the only thing we have in common. 

He's always been aggressive, but it was kept within limits. Times passed, but not his Anger, it caught fire like straw. I remember times when, my father wanted to give me affection, he beat up the places my schoolmates couldnt see. Suffice it minutely, a small insult created a storm which I barely escaped alive. Just like my mother. And dont you think this is the reason why i became a detective. The belief in the justice, in the law. Bullshit, so many people dont deserve the prison, they deserve my god damn bullet. But i was smart, since ever. Logic and observation were to me as a child. I was good in finding things, especially to impress the girls. Even if i stole the things. I became a detective, to not became my father. That is simple... there is so fucking psychological, profound justification. Did i just had bad luck, or should it all come this way? 

That it would escalate, i knew, i knew it would happen. Someone would be drivin insane by this city to commit a murder. But four at once? It was too weird, it was too demented. 

It aroused my curiosity.

What makes a game, a good game?  

Is it the Story? But.. what abound The Journey?I dont think it has one, didnt it? Or maybe a good gameplay.. but than what does make Telltale Games so good?

 Well i think a good game, just has to be good. Well, in case of Darkness Anomaly, i rely on my story, i rely on the graphics and also on the sound! This all toghether results an atmosphere, which for me... is the most important thing in a game! And well, i think i nailed it! You dont believe me? Just try the P.T right above. 

 A big part of great atmosphere is the sound! Which is so damn convincingly, convince yourself dear friend.

Let's not forget an another important part of a game! Its the voice acting! And i think i've nailed that one to! Just listen it on the P.T. Elijah Lucian did a fantactic job on this one!

This game is everything to me, its like a child! 
It brought me joy and it brought me tears, it causes so many emotions, 
it demands everything from one. To develop a game, you need to be strong, i think. Its so much hard work, i cant even describe! 
But does it worth it? Yes, yes believe me it does! Compare it to
Dark Souls, if there's a boss you cant handle for like weeks and finally in this moment you kill him! You know this feelings right? Exactly this feeling, i get this feeling when someone says 
"Hey Roma, your game.. it looks awesome!". I want it to be perfect. 
 Im alone on this project but at the same time so many people helping me. The great music i can use from the fantastic composer Peter Gundry and Mark Petrie, awesome people like Kenny and many other who support on so many steps i do. And now... im on Kickstarter. Because in need money. I know.. its kinda hart to say. It sounds so direct, so harsh. But its true... im a honest person and i dont want to sweeten the truth. I think thats wrong... For me, its not just a site where you can give money to somebody... i think you give hope. A little pieces of a puzzle to someone's dream.
So i want to ask you, from the buttom of my heart to support me with this one! I dont need this to became rich. I need this to fulfill a dream, and its even much deeper than this.
