June 24th, 2019 – It was quiet for some time around the first person horror game Silver Chains, but the dark forces lurked in the shadows all the while. Now some exciting news about Cracked Heads Games’ debut title emerged together with an all new trailer that will give you the shivers!

 

Most important information first: Silver Chains will release for PC on the 6th of August – check out Steam, GOG and other platforms then. Hopefully it won’t scare you to death!

   

Console aficionados will be able to feel the horror a bit later with versions for PlayStation®4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch coming in early 2020.

Madness awaits you already now as Silver Chains’ brand-new trailer gives you a fresh glimpse of some supernatural creatures that will give you the creeps. All the “beauty” of the dark chambers and dusty hallways in this ancient manor were realized by Unreal Engine 4. Take a seat, crank up the volume and see for yourself:

About Cracked Heads Games 

Cracked Heads Games started its work in 2016 as a game developing company. Consisting of five employees, the company is located in a small town named Yakutsk, Russia.

Once part of a successful company focusing on mobile games, the team has always wanted to create games for consoles. So, leaving everything behind, they decided to start their own company. After creating office conditions in a rented apartment, Cracked Heads Games decided to start development for their first own game, an ambitious horror survival game called Silver Chains. The game was presented at some of the largest gaming conferences such as E3, Tokyo Game Show and gamescom. Whilst preparing the release of their debut title, this ambitious company, has already started a new project, despite its size. Check out facebook.com/silverchainsgame for more information.
