FEARDEMIC sp. z o.o., a wholly owned subsidiary of BLOOBER TEAM S.A, and Artur Łączkowski, an independent developer from Krakow and creator of the game DEATH OF ROSE concluded a publishing deal which will see FEARDEMIC publish the game in 2020.
In DEATH OF ROSE, Scott lives to keep a record of long abandoned buildings while searching for proof of the paranormal. Along for the journey is Beth, Scott’s long-time companion and best friend.
This first chapter of Scott and Beth’s tale brings them to an abandoned school allegedly known as a place of worship for a deranged cult. The unsettling rumors that surround the school make Beth stay in the car while Scott goes in alone to investigate.
Beth’s voice over the radio becomes Scott’s only guide as he searches the dark, empty halls and classrooms of this long-forgotten place for clues of the rumored cult activity when suddenly, the old legend becomes much more real than either of them expected.
Will Scott be able to survive and unravel the dark secret that school hides? Or will his blood-chilling adventure strip him of those closest to him and his sanity?
• A unique narrative experience that goes beyond the tropes of the horror genre.
• An intricate multi-layered story set in a long-abandoned school full of dark mysteries to unveil and complex puzzles to solve.
• Interactive dialogues that will let you shape the relationship between the characters and uncover the revelations that haunt each of their lives.

DEATH OF ROSE is the first original game from Artur Łączkowski whose fame as a programmer grew from his emulation of P.T., the cult-game designed by Hideo Kojima in collaboration with film director Guillermo del Toro.
FEARDEMIC expects to make further announcements in the coming weeks related to DEATH OF ROSE, confirming release dates and premiering exclusive new game footage.
In making a statement about the publishing agreement, Scott Millard, Managing Director at FEARDEMIC, said: “DEATH OF ROSE is going to be quite a debut for Artur Laczkowski. For such a young game designer he has created a very fluid narrative and surrounded it with an incredibly heavy atmosphere whilst at the same time juxtaposing with his own youthful approach to game making. I am pretty certain that this is the beginning of a long career in the games industry and we hope Feardemic to be part of it”
Artur Łączkowski and creator of DEATH OF ROSE said when referring to the publishing deal: “There is one thing for sure, Death of Rose is a truly unique experience. With the help of Feardemic, I’m confident that the game will be accessible to a much larger audience. Even though I created this art piece on my own, I couldn’t have done it without the people I work with. Prepare yourselves for the brain-melting journey that will haunt you long after you’ve switched the game off. I hope you will join us in this modest first chapter of a dark and twisted adventure. “
