Abductions is on Greenlight now!
Featuring The Hum:Abductions
Release date: Middle 2015
For years, people have been hearing mysterious, foreboding, mechanical type noises around the Earth without explanation. The source could never be identified. It was blamed on machinery, electronics and even the Earth’s moving tectonic plates, but not a single scientific mind could locate the cause of this strange phenomenon.

One day the source of The Hum was revealed, and all the conspiracists were wrong.

Explore a desolate world that has forever been changed by a mysterious enemy. Find your way through a city ravaged by war as you scavenge for your basic survival needs. Avoid detection from the Invaders as you cling to every second of life. Watch as the aliens carry out their invasion and reshape the city.

Unravel the mysteries behind The Hum.

It's a shame to see this was apparently shelved, but I really hope you guys are able to work on it eventually. One of the few games on here that I actually thought sounded really cool in theory.

So yes, in regards to this and abductions, its been several months now, and honestly you need to get a move on this, if its dead, just make an announcement please. Its a solid concept, i rarely see alien horror like this and its a good concept. This is the age of good horror now so it will be fairly well recieved if what weve seen is any indication so far. Get on this, seriously, itll be worth it if you do. Horror isnt a niche anymore.
Looks great!
