Daemon_9 - FMV Horror Game Now Available on Steam!

Posted Nov 1, 2018 @ 17:27 CDT

31st OCTOBER, 2018, : Daemon_9 , an FMV horror game has just released on Steam (PC, Linux, Mac). For this special Halloween launch, it is available to purchase at 40% discount for next 7 days.

Daemon_9 is an indie game that combines the thrill of a found-footage horror movie with the mystery-solving challenge of games like Her Story. Players must solve a supernatural crime using only found images, information, and video footage, both within the game and out on the web - before they become the next victim.

This indie game is produced and developed by Jeffrey Jackson, a Los Angeles-based filmmaker with a diverse background in storytelling and web development. He wrote, directed, edited and programmed it all nearly single-handedly over the past several years.

Originally Daemon_9 was a purely web-based experience released in late 2017, where the game communicated with players with real SMS and E-mails. But with the Steam version this functionality in integrated within the game itself.

Official trailer:


"I've always been a guy who wears a lot of hats, so while it may not have been the most time-efficient way to create Daemon 9, I feel I know every inch of it intrinsically that allows me to make a richer, more tightly integrated story experience." Jeff describes approaching the creation Daemon 9 "as a filmmaker rather than a gamer, to keep it intrinsically rooted in the cinematic."

-Jeffrey Jackson, founder, Curio Productions
