Let Madness Reign, Welcome to the Show - REVEIL Launches Today on PlayStation, Xbox Series and PC!

Ladies and Gentlemen, Prepare for an Unforgettable Night Full of Surprises, Horror and REVEIL-ations!

HAMBURG, Germany, (March 6, 2024) - Developer Pixelsplit and Publisher Daedalic Entertainment finally open the big top and release the narrative-driven psycho-thriller REVEIL on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC. Join Walter Thompson on a treacherous journey through the labyrinth of his own mind and discover his dark past at the Nelson Bros Circus.




Have you ever visited the circus? Left your troubles of everyday life at the door, to enjoy an evening of wonder? What you saw, did it make you question reality? In REVEIL you play as Walter Thompson, a stage builder, a caring husband and a loving father who realizes that he is trapped in a nightmarish world that seems to revolve around his past at the Nelson Bros Circus. However, if the circus teached Walter one thing, then that even when things seem uncontrollable and chaotic, there's always a method to the madness. 

Join Walter on the journey through his disturbing mind and help him to find the only things that matter to him - his wife Martha and his daughter Dorie. Explore mind-bending environments, solve creative puzzles and survive spine-chilling encounters while the line between reality and chaos gets thinner with every step.
