Veiled – Retro-styled occult puzzler challenges players to unlock its secrets
Brand-new Canadian game studio Regularly Scheduled Programming has today released their debut title, occult horror game Veiled, for free on Itch.io. Inspired by titles like PT, Paratopic, and the underground games of Kitty Horrorshow, Veiled offers an atmospheric minimalist mystery, steeped in themes of tragedy and occult horror. The game was created by a team of three developers in the space of a few months.
“Veiled is a small experiment in atmospheric horror. We’ve worked to create a dynamic environment that relies on subtlety and unpredictability to unsettle the player as they explore. No two playthroughs will be exactly the same,” said Ian McCamant, CEO and Project Director at Regularly Scheduled Programming. “We want to use Veiled as a way to introduce our studio to the community and start building relationships with our players. Discovering the ins and outs of the story is part of the mystery and part of the fun. The whole experience is like a puzzle box, and we hope that players will collaborate to unlock its secrets.”
Rendered in moody, lo-fi graphics reminiscent of early PlayStation games, Veiledchallenges players to navigate an eerie suburban home, following cryptic clues to complete an obscure ritual. But they are not alone. A dark presence lurks in the hallways and hints of a tragic history await the observant explorer. This place is haunted.
Veiled is 100% free, so dive in and begin the ritual today at Regularly Scheduled Programming’s Itch.io page.
