REVEIL combines psychological horror and puzzle-solving to create a mind-bending experience. In REVEIL, you play as Walter Thompson, an ex-circus employee, as he tries to find his missing wife and daughter through the depths of his mind and memories of the circus.

Check out the release date trailer below:

As Walter, you must navigate through several chapters of interlaced narratives. Take notes, and maybe you'll uncover the truth behind what's really going on at this circus within your mind.

Developer Pixelsplit says they have pushed the Unity game engine to its limits to provide an atmospheric and realistic environment for the players to become immersed in. And we have to say, the game does sport some impressive visuals.

REVEIL promises an engrossing horror experience when it lands on Steam on March 6th, 2024. There is also a "Funhouse" Edition version of the game available, which will include the following extras:

  • REVEIL Original Soundtrack: 14 original compositions, beautiful and haunting.
  • Digital Artbook: A look behind the scenes of the game, featuring concept art and inspirations.
  • Black and White Camera Filter: Use this in-game for a vintage horror atmosphere.
  • Audio Plays: A selection of audio plays recorded with the game's voice actors, more bits and pieces from the world of REVEIL.
  • Developer Commentary: Commentary by the developers to be found in-game, for even more background insights.

There's no word yet on Steam Deck compatibility, although the game does have full support for gamepads. Horror games like this often have smaller and somewhat enclosed environments, so that's one point in favor of this game being playable on the Steam Deck.

One member of the game's community did get to try the game in the Steam Next Fest back in November and said that the game's demo ran ok on the Steam Deck, however.
