Introducing Paul Prospero.

The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, a gripping narrative-focused thriller inspired by the early XX. century pulp horror stories, delivering a non-linear story of an investigation with some occult undertones, and sporting some gorgeous first person-perspective graphics, is available for on GOG.com for $19.99*.

Inspired by the weird fiction (and other tales of the macabre) from the early twentieth century, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter aims to significantly evolve immersive storytelling in games. While it features a private detective and quite a few mental challenges, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is not an especially puzzle-ridden game. Our focus is on atmosphere, mood, and the essential humanity of our characters. Still, the discoveries won’t happen on their own, or without your help. Using both Paul’s supernatural skill of being able to communicate with the dead, and your own powers of observation, you will discover the mystery behind a trail of corpses, the roots of a dark ancient force lurking in Red Creek Valley, and the fate of a missing boy.

This is a first-person story-driven mystery game that focuses entirely on exploration and discovery. It contains no combat or explosions of any kind. If our game leaves any scars, we hope you won’t be able to see them. Feeling intrigued? So was TotalBisquit! Grab The Vanishing of Ethan Carter – Special Edition for $19.99 on GOG.com.

*19.99 is the regular price for this title in the US. Other prices will apply in different countries. If you end up paying more than than the US price, we will reimburse the difference from our own pocket, giving it back to you in store credit (this is what we call the “Fair Price Package”).
