Description

Vernon's Legacy is a horror game with an enigmatic story that takes place nearly a century ago. You learned of the sudden death of your uncle two days ago. When you reach the estate of your deceased relative, you find it deserted. Why is Alois the butler not here to receive you? Something is not right. You explore the rooms of Dunkenhof Manor in the first person view. Do not expect this to be a hitch-free stroll—there are puzzles to solve, secrets to unravel, and hidden doors to open. You can add items to your inventory and use them to interact with your environment. You keep coming across the effects of the former inhabitants of the place. Their letters and notes reveal to you the events of the past few years. When you finally enter the centuries-old vaults beneath the house, you realize that a force beyond any imagination lurks here and your life is in mortal danger.

History

TripleBrick was founded in 2010 by Ralf Sczepan and James Pick. The two developers have been designing visuals and 3D environments for video games ever since. The 3D worlds they have created can be found in many current titles. In October 2014, they got the idea to create a full game of their own. Within a month, a prototype was created. The first visually impressive version was playable already in January 2015. This first version was presented to the community on January 13, 2015 as a Steam Greenlight Submission. The response was overwhelming. Vernon's Legacy was greenlit in only 8 days. By early 2016, the game mechanics have been perfected, further environments have been created, and the story has been tweaked. The game is set for an Early Access release on Steam in March 2016.
