Are there any plans for a Linux version ?
A downloadable game for Windows
The game centers on protagonist Nicolas Grey, a freelance painter, as he searches for his missing wife in the mysterious town of Sinistria.
It all begins in the fall of 2017, after a series of strange nightmares and the receipt of a letter from his wife Stephanie, despite the fact that she vanished without a trace one year prior, which lead Nicolas into the abandoned town of Sinistria.
As he peels back the layers of mystery, the town begins to expose its terrifying past, revealing to Nicolas, the true origin of his wife.
Sinistria is a fictional town in Romania, that was abandoned in 1922 in unknown circumstances.
Throughout the game, you will discover why this place became a ghost town and the macabre secrets that involve dark entities, in a realistic and frightening atmosphere.
Themes like love, the human mind, forgiveness, domestic violence, illusions and delusions, existentialism and morality, illness and disease and last but not least the dangers of religious fanaticism will be exposed in the game in a fictional but also realistic way.
Most of the action of the game will take place in the town of Sinistria, so, the environment will be atypical to the period when the town was abandoned, more precisely in 1922.
Despite the fact that most of the gameplay will take place in Sinistria, the action occurs nowadays, which will bring modern elements into the environment.
Sinistria is a psychological horror game that features some survival gameplay mechanics. That means you will have to survive. In order to do that, you must either run, hide from enemies or fight with them. Yes, the combat is possible in the game, as long as you have a weapon equipped.
You can interact with almost all the objects in the game. (grab, examines, etc.)
*Realistic and detailed environments: a terrifying world to explore.
*Unpredictable Enemies: You cannot know when or where enemies appear.
*Interact with the environment(objects, drawers, lights, etc.)
*Fighting system: You can fight with the entities if he has a weapon equipped. (pistol, axe, etc.)
*Crafting system: You can take various items and/or resources and combining them.
*Demons, ghosts and witches: The perfect recipe for a horror game.
You can expect a constant feeling of fear, caused by the dark and mysterious atmosphere, accompanied by sounds and music that will enhance the suspense, drama, action, and paranoia.
Despite the fact that you can fight your enemies, the atmosphere will create discomfort and dread by exposing common psychological and emotional vulnerabilities/fears and revealing the darker parts of the human mind that most people may repress or deny.
Despite the fact that most of the songs in the game will create discomfort and dread, some of them will expose the sad part of the story and the things that happened in the town of Sinistria, such as the main song: "Silence" which you can listen below along with two other samples from the soundtrack of the game.
What does "Sinistria" mean to us:
This is our first project as a team, so "Sinistria" means much more than just a game for us.
We chose to create this game because we love horror games, but most importantly, this is a way we can send a message through a story that couldn't be better expressed into another genre than horror.
"Sinistria" is not just a horror game that boosts your pulse and adrenaline, it's mystery and emotion.
In order to download this game you must purchase it at or above the minimum price of $1.99 USD. You will get access to the following files:

Really neat game, made me jump more than a few times!
Looking forward to playing chapter 2 next weekend!
This game is one of the only horror games that has an interesting story. Can't wait to finish it. I love it. Check it out!
This game feels a bit like a mix of Resident Evil 7 with P.T.
So far, it has an interesting setting and story, with obvious nods to other horror franchises, which I enjoyed.
The only problem for me, would be the amount of jump scares. I feel like the game relies a bit too much on that, and less on atmosphere, which I prefer a lot more.
I also encountered one small issue, where one of the boxes leading to the air vent, got 'stuck' in my character.
That all being said, I'm looking forward to what the game has in store. I also made a video on my experience playing the game, feel free to have a look!

That was awesome. There were a few parts that really had my heart racing, like just after the fire bit in the short maze. Can't wait for more.
This was great! Every jumpscare got me and all the people in the stream loved it.

Love it, great demo! Really curious about the story and the atmosphere was really good.
Ran into a couple bugs but, eh, it's a demo :)
Diria que de los mejores que he jugado. congratulations
Honestly one of the scariest games I've ever played.
This is definitely looking interesting! It is not oftn Witchcraft is covered in these games, and it asks a lot of interesting questions right off the bat.
I do see a bit of an overuse of the "force the player to go back and find a key to direct them to th scares" type gameplay, but all the same, the various events are interesting enough to keep one going. Not to mention that the game is gorgeous. Good work!
This game was really good! I played it in a 3 random horror games video! Here’s the link for those interested:
Incredibly perfect. Ideal for this halloween
Very pleased with this game and I hope it makes it! It'll come out around my birthday :)

I really liked this game the creepy atmosphere sound effects and good graphics really put you in a creepy atmosphere and the jump scares are really well timed and placed can't wait to play the full release. If you would like to see my playtrough here it is:enjoy 😈👍
This was well made and satisfying, one of the BEST itches so far! A couple bugs here and there, like the camera losing it when I had the bag. Solving the puzzles and finding the keys was satisfying. Can't wait to use the gun.
amazing job , love the atmosphere , textures are on point , you expand on this and you will have 1 of the best horror games of the year
This was one of the best indie horror games I've played all year! The pacing of the story is so well done, and the level design is fantastic as well. Here's my playthrough:
Such a well made, indie horror game. Needs a few improvements here and there, but really good overall! And actually scary!
