About this project

Do you enjoy tales, at the end of which nothing can save the main characters? You see more benefit in a loss than in an acquisition. Fictional characters are suffering - you are looking at. Or vice versa. Does it sound tempting?

Any time you're in town, you are surrounded by the miserables, grizzlers and grumblers. Take your time, listen to them, and they will tell their Tragediettas. Storytellers will change each other again and again, introducing you to their mythological consciousness, strange events, creatures and actions.

That's a start. Who knows whom you'll meet and what he’ll tell...


The whole town of unfriendly characters will tell you their strange tales. Some storytellers will be easy to understand, the others will need to ask additional questions, and other tellers will need other listeners, to be understood.

The Town Princess broke her leg at the ball and since she has been walking with a wooden prosthesis, causing regret and disgust in others. There are no happy endings. There are stories with morals which could be different under other circumstances.

The action takes place in an alien time, in a town that only vaguely looks familiar. Local mail will allow you to be aware of the latest news from the newspapers, be in communication and even provide the promotional leaflets. The town map will tell you where to find new narrators – and almost forgotten history of the houses and streets will come to life again – to die in front of your eyes.

Behave the way you behave in your real life, and not expect that something will encourage you for “the right answers” or punish for “the wrong ones”. Choose something that you are really interested in, and then you achieve a dialogue with the narrator, or even affect some events. In the end, there are just stories HERE.

All the game scenes are drawn with a pencil, cut from paper and placed in a 3D-scene, as to be maximum similar to games from your childhood. In childhood, did you have any other games? Maybe, it's for the best.

There are fairy tales for adults. Most likely for adults. Love in all colors, questions and dilemmas, psychological and physical issues. Read “Freaks tales” alone before going to sleep – add a bit more desperation in your evening.

We are announcing the start of our IndieGoGo campaign!
For more information and screenshots please follow this announcement link:
Our big Indiegogo campaign announcement.

We can complete the project ourselves, but there are a number of expenses that can trouble our progress to people’s hearts:

- Development (the project can be increased twice in terms of playthrough time but it’s impossible without additional sponsorship)
- Additional focus on translation (search of a talanted translator able not to miss any details in a literary text)

This is our first work presented to a large audience, but, unfortunately, we are unable to attract enough attention to it. There are many reasons such as language barrier, lack of experience and no professional connections, lack of sponsorship, and others. At present, all resources are put on the project implementation, and Secta is proud of those followers, who will decide to bear tales about «Freaks tales».

Depending on the attracted attention, the project will be essentially improved (much more precise information will be provided later):

- more tales and narrators, more story branching;
- translation into other languages;
- mobile version of the game;
- even more interesting and atmospheric features.

Don't listen to dudes talking about drugs, etc. It's due to lack of imagination) You have an unusual idea and art style. Without a doubt, many people will like it. Good luck, guys! Upvoted.
