Narrative is based on Bailichkas, which are short stories about an allegedly true event of meeting with spirits and demons

As with previous project, our game features a narrative based on authentic folklore. In this game we are focusing on Russian myths. We are being consulted by Konstantin Shumov, a scientific expert in this field, ehtnographist and collector of bailichkas. We are continuing our work with Perm Historical Museum, and the game will feature maps based on XIXth century maps of Cherdyn' District that we've found in the archives.
