About the story

Fran Bow is a Horror Point and click game that tells the story of Fran, a young girl struggling with a mental disorder and an unfair destiny. It is a trip to the deepest and darkest side of human psychology, delivered through blood and tears.

After being witness of the gruesome (and mysterious) loss of her parents, found dismembered at their home Fran runs away into the woods, together with her only friend: Mr. Midnight, a black cat that Fran had previously received as a present from her parents. In the forest, Fran loses senses and when she recovers, she is at Oswald Asylum, an oppressive mental institution for children, with no trace of Mr. Midnight.
After having a dream about her beloved cat she decides to escape the institution to find him and go back to aunt Grace. Aunt Grace is her only living relative who she is very fond of.
Nothing comes easy for Fran. There is also a strange creature, Remor, who wants to prevent Fran Bow from going home at any cost. But she is determined to find her cat, return to aunt Grace and together find out who is responsible for her parents murders.

  • Story driven psychological horror adventure game.
  • Unique and peculiar hand drawn 2D Art-Style.
  • Self- administer medication to open the terrible hidden world that will help solve puzzles and find objects.
  • A bizarre variety of puzzles designed in different levels of difficulty and mostly based on the twisted relationship between Fran Bow’s imagination and reality.
  • Old Arcade inspired mini-games designed to be part of the transitions in the story.
  • Interactive and occasionally playable pet cat, Mr Midnight.
  • Several interactive characters with unique personalities that will help or prevent Fran Bow going home.

Hey! Just a big Fran Bow fan checking in on the game progress! I have played the demo several times now and am super excited for its release. I check the Steam page often as well as the website from my phone and the Play Store too. It says early 2015 so I assume that would be by the end of April hopefully? Not rushing you all just curious how it's going because I haven't seen a progress update on here in quite sometime (since October 2014 I believe).
