The trailer is a real-time in-game capture (PC), with the cameras set to tell a certain story
Inspired by the weird fiction stories and other tales of macabre of the early 20th century, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is a game created by The Astronauts, a team comprised of People Can Fly (Bulletstorm, Painkiller) veterans. As a detective with the supernatural ability to visualize scenes of lethal crimes, you investigate the kidnapping of a young boy, hoping to save him before it's too late. The investigation leads you to a beautiful mountain area, where you come across a severely mutilated body of one of the kidnappers. Using both your paranormal skill and modern detective tools you discover the mystery behind the trail of corpses in the valley, the roots of an ancient force ruling the area, and the fate of the kidnapped boy.
The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is set for release on PC via digital distribution later this year.
