History

Dread X Collection 3 is being produced by Ted Hentschke, Patrick Ewald, and StarlightSkyes from DreadXP. DreadXP was originally a media company focused on horror games but has decided to branch into game publishing. Instead of the traditional method of publishing, they decided for their first project to work with developers to make short games which is a staple of the indie horror genre.

Story

Continuing the story of the Dread X Collection 1 & 2, join Leo and his live-in alien spirit Prometheus as they brave the terrors of a mysterious castle. Together, they must find a path to the castle’s tallest point to reunite Prometheus with the rest of his body and return him to his homeworld. But it won’t be so easy as flipping a few switches and finding some keys. Leo and Prometheus will need to commune with 12 spirits of the past to unlock the secrets of the past, present, and future. It all makes sense, we promise.
