In the video, you will experience the beginning of REVEIL and, further down the line, a short but intense segment that takes place in a later part of the story. Join the main character Walter Thompson as he wakes up in his bedroom, just to realize soon after that this is not his home - but a place where different memories of his get interwoven with each other. Walter starts the search for his daughter Dorie while encountering dream-like scenes that all seem to revolve around the Nelson Bros Circus where he once worked. Will you be able to make sense of it all while reality is falling apart?
REVEIL releases on March 6th, 2024, on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S, while a PlayStation 4 version will follow later this year. Due to their limited resources, the small indie team has decided to focus on the development of these previously mentioned platforms and confirms that an Xbox One version of REVEIL is no longer planned to be developed.
REVEIL Funhouse Edition
If you’re going to go big, go Big Top! For those looking for an additionally engrossing performance, REVEIL’s Funhouse Edition launches the same day. Filled with extra content and media tied to the game, it’s almost like being in the front-row center seat of the show:
- Five original songs written and produced for REVEIL, featured in previous trailers
- Digital Artbook filled with 41 pages of atmos-fear
- An unlockable black-and-white camera effect
- Unlockable developer commentary
- An encore of five audio plays that allow players to dive deeper into the world and lore of REVEIL, recorded with the original voice actors from the game
Unveiled last year, REVEIL has also been featured at the Future Game Show last November, and Fear Fest on Steam in October. REVEIL will have its opening night on March 6th, 2024 on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and Steam.
