Montague’s Mount has been updated thanks to your feedback.
Montague’s Mount is Greenlit!
Release date: August 2013
Based on a true story, Montague's Mount is a first-person psychological rollercoaster ride through isolation, desolation and one man's tortured mind.

The mixture of cold Atlantic water and coarse sand in your mouth brings you back from unconsciousness. Surrounded by the wreckage of a boat’s hull, you can only draw one conclusion: your vessel has been torn apart by the submerged rocks. The secrets of the island must be uncovered if you are ever going to find a way to escape. Where is everyone; is the island really uninhabited; what is lurking within the isolated caves; and what is that building on top of Montague’s Mount?
Can you handle the truth?

A disturbing psychological thriller set in the bleakness of an abandoned island, combining exploration, puzzle-solving and a poignant storyline.

You have been warned.

  • Oculus Rift support.
  • Desolate yet beautiful environments to explore.
  • Challenging puzzles to solve.
  • Secrets and collectibles hidden across the island.
  • Voice narration by Derek Riddell (Ugly Betty, Frankie, No Angels and more).
  • First game to promote the Irish language (Gaeilge).
  • Full language support for English, French, German, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Polish and Russian.
  • To be released on PC, Mac and Linux.

What people are saying:
Originally posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun:
“…this is a puzzle game as much as it is a trip through memory and such, so there’s more to do than just wander the landscape feeling like you’re on holiday with my dad.”

Originally posted by Indie Statik:
“Anyone looking to lose their mind out of fear or pure adoration of the gentle Irish narrator should also head over to Steam Greenlight and give Montague’s Mount a thumbs-up.

By far the most appealing aspect of Montague’s Mount appears to be its atmospheric tone and storytelling.”

Originally posted by Brutal Gamer:
“The demo was relatively short, but left me wanting more. It certainly made me wish that this was what Dear Esther was like.

Probably one of the most atmospheric looking games at the Rezzed expo this year.”

Originally posted by Invision Game Community:
“…it is entirely fair to say that for a one-man project, Montague’s Mount blew me away.”
“Montague’s Mount is an inspiring creation from the mind of just one man. It is astounding to see what he alone has been able to achieve here and I wish the game every success. I look forward to having the chance to sit down and explore the mysteries of the island myself once the game is released, and would absolutely encourage people to support the game’s quest for a Steam Greenlight approval.”

About this project:

Matt Clifton is a one-man development team. He explains what inspired him to create Montague’s Mount…

“It was born out of a love of both video games and cinema. Long before I ever sat down to create my first video game (approximately 20 years ago) I could be seen waving a camera at just about anything. Over the years, certain movies have captured my imagination, namely One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest, The Shining, The Blair Witch Project, and more recently, Shutter Island. All these films have a common thread of isolation, desolation and touch upon thought-provoking issues.

Current trends within the gaming world have left the market awash with horror-esque games; many of which revolve around shock tactics or gory visuals to get their message across. My goal with Montague's Mount is to turn the Horror genre on its head by giving the player a combination of clever puzzles, a thought-provoking story that touches upon real issues (such as mental health), and stays true to my love of cinematic visuals.

As the game is set in Ireland, I have embraced the Irish language (Gaeilge). I believe Montague's Mount is the first ever mainstream game to use the Irish language. English audio and subtitles are of course available.”
