Buried is an interactive choose-your-own-adventure style story for iOS/Android and PC/Mac. It follows a logger who wakes up in the middle of the forest, unable to remember what's happened. He finds that his crew is missing and when he starts searching around, he uncovers something that should have stayed hidden.
Featuring gorgeous photos, a haunting soundscape and gripping text, players make choices throughout the game that affect the plot: how to approach danger, who to trust, and who lives or dies.
The Bromoco Games team been interested in the interactive fiction space for a while. Storytelling in games has come a long way in the past few years with games like The Walking Dead and Heavy Rain, and now seemed about the right time to try to merge those gameplay styles with text. Majd Bennani, Robert Kleiner and Brice started working together to make Buried a reality in May 2015.
Barry Napier joined the team as a published dark fiction author who was excited about working with us to craft the story. Barry's work has appeared in more than 40 online and print publications and he is the creator of several popular fiction series including The Bleeding Room, the Everything Theory series, The Hollows, and The Masks of Our Fathers.
Soon after Gimu, a terrifying ambient composer joined the team and did all the amazing creepy music.
