Asylum

Developer Release Year Platforms
PC

It has been years since you left the Hanwell Mental Institute, finally cured, and you wouldn't have returned to it for anything in the world. It was a despicable place filled with hatred and pain; the inmates often more human than the doctors in charge. But there is no denying it, you are recognizing the faces in your visions, the stories are becoming too familiar and they are unbearable. Something terrible happened there and it has somehow affected you. It was dormant in your memories for years until today. You can no longer discern reality from the imaginary, and you will not be able to live in peace until you unravel the past and find out what happened to you. It is time to go back and face the horrors awaiting in the asylum.
