According to the developers, the adventure will again be very story-focused and will start five years after the mysterious events of its predecessor. Instead of chasing teenage Alex around like in the first game, this time we slip into the shoes of environmental researcher Riley. She returns to her hometown of Camena because there are inexplicable radio signals causing problems. Electrical devices go crazy, and there are other things that are wrong. The first, short trailer promises a lot of supernatural fun and dark moments, all in the charming graphic style of the series.
