The game is made by gameontwikkelaar Tequila Works, known from Deadlight, Rime and VR-game The Invisible Hours. Tequila Works announces that the players themselves have an influence on the course of the story. The game will have multiple endings, which players – as in the film – only reach if they are “the true value of friends and family to know”.
