Game

Overview

In the 1940s, the Weaver Homestead mysteriously burned to the ground, but the children who lived there were never found. The events of that night spawn the urban legend of Wick, a campfire game played by teenagers who dare their friends to spend a night alone in the haunted woods searching for ghosts -- with only the light of a candle.

Tonight it is your turn to take the dare. Can you face your fears long enough to learn if the legend is true?

 
 

Story

Details

The legend of Wick started long ago after a local family was thought lost to a horrible fire. The parent’s bodies were found,  but the children seemed to disappear entirely. The local town extended a candlelight vigil, with many residents claiming to see the children deep in the woods. Some locals even say that many children over the years have disappeared into these woods, never to be seen again. 

Wick plays out over the course of one fateful night. As you survive each hour, you’ll hear police recordings and unlock new evidence about the present day story of Wick -- the one where you and your companions are the main focus of the story.

Enter the old Weaver property, if you dare, and learn old secrets of the family that once lived there. You’ll find strange objects and discover evidence to help piece together some form of the truth. Whether you live to tell about it is up to you.

 
 

Gameplay

Details

Terror by Candlelight

Deep in the darkness you sense you are not alone. But will you live to tell the story? Navigate the forest by candlelight. You'll need to be on the lookout for new candles as you try to stay alive. Be careful not to let the light go out, and don't use all your matches... the darkness is not your friend.

Unpredictable Enemies

You'll need to stay in the light to keep your fear at bay-- and there is plenty to be scared of. Come face to face with a variety of enemies then learn what it takes to evade each one, or die trying. Each hour of the night delivers a new play experience. Enemies, events, and candle placement are all procedurally delivered, ensuring you'll be terrified in new ways with each playthrough.

Die Often

The game spans the hours of midnight to 6am. You'll need to survive hour by hour to further your progress and unlock the haunting truth of what happened in these woods. Wick is no walk in the park. Your fate will be decided with a unique double-ending, if you can push through to the final act.

Bonus Chapter: NO WAY OUT

Just when you think you've mastered the forest, go back in time with a Prequel story to find out what happened one year ago on Halloween. Revisit old friends and face a harrowing challenge to unlock new secrets and some major easter eggs!
