Codalyn, the single-developer studio behind Stable Orbit, recently released a teaser trailer for Privacy, its new narrative adventure into a Dutch billionaire’s villa.
Although the trailer leaves much to the imagination, it takes viewers into a child’s bedroom and reads that players will have to “uncover the secrets” hidden by billionaire Robert-Paul den Heer. The bedroom suggests that he leaves a son after his passing, named Daryl, who seems to be a big fan of stuffed animals.
The piano heard in the trailer offers an eerie touch, as does the description provided by the game’s developer, Jim Offerman, on the official website:
“In the summer of 2079, you are sent to the home of Robert-Paul den Heer, a billionaire CEO who is recently deceased. As you approach the lavish villa, your boss calls to remind you of your task: secure Mr. Den Heer’s latest research. Hubert, the house AI, has been informed of your arrival and will assist you in retrieving the files.”
“As you dig deeper, you slowly piece together a series of events that shaped Mr. Den Heer’s past, our present… and more.”
Privacy is set for release sometime in 2020 and will be initially available on computers running Windows and macOS. The game will be sold via Steam and is currently up for preorder on itch.io.
