Mistaken Visions’ noir horror adventure gets brand new trailer to celebrate its upcoming launch.

Press release:
10 APRIL 2018 — Via a brand new trailer, Hamburg-based indie developer Mistaken Visions has announced that its noir-influenced horror game, The Piano, will release on 24 May 2018 via Steam.

Part traditional survival horror, part noir-influenced murder mystery, The Piano is an unsettling and riveting indie adventure. Accused of his brothers’ murders, failed pianist John Barnerway searches for answers on the streets of post-war Paris – but something isn’t right about this place…

The Piano has been five years in the making, predominantly by one developer, Jonathan Stemmildt. His aim was to create a different kind of horror game: one inspired as much by film noir as by Silent Hill, and whose adventure tells players a deeply personal and intimate story.

Jonathan Stemmildt said: “Five years ago I had the idea of making a horror game that wasn’t just about the scares, but which featured a deep and personal story that players could become emotionally invested in. It was my first game and I never really expected much to come of it – but suddenly, something I dreamed about for years is becoming reality, and time is just flying by. It feels great!”

The game is being released in partnership with indie game consultancy Game If You Are, whose director Lewis Denby said: “I first discovered The Piano 18 months ago. When Jonathan sent me an early demo, I found a game that had an atmosphere and personality unlike anything I’d ever played before – and since then, Jonathan and I have kept collaborating on occasion, slowly nudging it towards completion.”

Lewis, who is also producer of The Piano, added: “It’s been great working together, and I think the results speak for themselves. Together we’ve taken Mistaken Visions’ already extraordinary work and started adding that extra layer of polish. We can’t wait to see what people think of the game when it releases next month!”

The ambitious indie horror game – which features around 8 hours of unsettling adventuring and a fully voice-acted cast of characters – will release for PC via Steam on Thursday 24 May, priced at $9.99.

About The Piano:
Born to an American father and a French mother in the aftermath of the Great War, John Barnerway lived in the shadow of his three brothers. George, Louis and Valentine were renowned pianists – but when John is accused of their murders, he finds himself at the centre of a media witch-hunt that sees him traversing the lonely streets of Paris in search of answers.

Part traditional survival horror, part story-driven adventure, and part noir-influenced murder mystery, The Piano is an unsettling and riveting indie game more than five years in the making.

Features:
– True psychological horror: delve into the darkest corners of John’s mind
– Gather clues and solve puzzles in search of answers
– Evade terrifying foes that stalk the empty streets of Paris
– Piece together a fragmented story to uncover the truth
– A noir-influenced aesthetic, with heavily stylised visuals
– Immersive soundtrack and full voice acting
