RESORT, the new game by Backwoods Entertainment (Unforeseen Incidents), will be shown at Gamescom 2019 for the first time ever. Backwoods will present the interactive mystery at the much-loved Indie Arena Booth in Hall 10.2.

RESORT is an interactive mystery short story about repressed trauma and buried secrets. Renowned writer Laura Tanner embarks on a surreal journey and faces an odd intersection of dreams and reality.

Their previous game Unforeseen Incidents, the award-winning story of hapless handyman Harper Pendrell, was well received all over the world. The Nintendo Switch version will be available later this year and can also be tested at the Indie Arena Booth

LET'S MEET!

We'd like to invite you to visit us at Gamescom! If you'd like to talk to us and cast an eye at RESORT or the Nintendo Switch version of Unforeseen Incidents, please mail us at [email protected] to make an appointment.

We are at the Indie Arena Booth in Hall 10.2 (every day) or in the business area at the MedienDigitalLand NRW Booth (only Wednesday, Aug 21st; Hall 4.1, B-031/C-040).

ABOUT RESORT

A comet is on course to obliterate the small town of Laburnum Creek. Renowned writer Laura Tanner visits the former health resort to interview several inhabitants who are refusing to leave.

Will Laburnum Creek cast its spell over her too? Or will she jeopardize everything to uncover the truth?
