First-Person Survival Horror Adventure Draugen Announced for PC and Next-Gen
Draugen is a first-person survival horror adventure, set amongst the deep fjords and towering mountains of Norway’s awe-inspiring west coast. The game is a dark and disturbing journey into the pitch black heart of Norwegian national romanticism, as seen through the eyes of an American nature photographer, botanist and entomologist.The Story
Inspired by Scandinavian literature, legends and fairytales, as well as Norse mythology and the Icelandic sagas — is set in the early 1920s, and delves into the deepest, darkest secrets of a remote fishing community where every single soul has mysteriously vanished.
As the player explores the tiny settlement, gathering clues and memories, and unearthing the truth behind a terrible tragedy, they will learn more about the history of the village and its inhabitants. And they will come to see that behind even the most innocent of facades lurks the potential for malice.
But there is more to this place than meets the eye.
From time to time, a woman in black can be spotted in the distance. Who is she, and what is her connection to this place? Who is the little girl singing broken lullabies as the sky begins to darken? And when night falls, and those last few, precious drops of kerosene in the lamp feed a fragile, flickering flame, what hides out there in the darkness and in the cold, black sea?
Discover the clues. Uncover the memories. Decipher the past. Survive the night.
Human beings are full of contradictions. We want what we don’t have. We get tired of what we struggled to get. We say one thing but do another.
It’s not just people who behave this way, throughout the universe things are happening that aren’t supposed to be happening. We think we know how something works and then it does something completely different.
We like patterns, we like working out the rules and being able to predict events. But there’s always an exception to the rule. An anomaly will arise. The unexpected will turn up with alarming regularity. And when this happens our reaction is to take a closer look. We are fascinated by contradiction and want to examine it for answers, even when there are none to be had.
This urge is powerful and is just as strong in the fictional world as it is in the real one.
A fir tree was found in a man’s lungs suspected of having cancer!
In 2009, Russian doctors operated on Artyom Sidorkin to remove what they thought was a tumor in his lung. When they opened him up, they were surprised to find a fir tree growing instead! Doctors speculate that the man must have inhaled a seed that eventually sprouted and grew inside him. The growing branches were even started to cause him to cough up blood because they were puncturing his lungs!http://ift.tt/1ghD2Jm
Ouroboros usually is depicted as a snake eating it’s own tail. Sometimes it’s a dragon, but mostly serpentine in most sources.
It is a symbol of the cycle of life, death and rebirth, something that is constantly destroying and remaking itself.
So sometimes it looks like this:
The symbol of infinity, the eternal return in which everything has been existing, reoccurring forever in a cycle.
It’s also associated with alchemy, where it represents “One is all” which is everything above, eternity.
