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.

Installing the full version, no matter what it might cost!
Except if it costed 18 bucks.
So, you might already know my thoughts on the demo, I think the demo was awesome, and I really want to play more!

We are planning on making a huge update for you all in October, the game is very much still being made with hardcore passion! As for achievements and cards, that is something we really are looking forward to adding in the game!

Is this game still being developed? There doesn't seem to be a update, the recent one goes back to July. Waiting for it to come out as it looks really good. Just a bit worried if they stopped or just too busy to make updates.
