It Will Find You is a first person narrative driven horror experience, utilising a reactive narrative system that alters the story's flow based on player actions.

With a focus on environmental interaction and progressive narrative through game-play, It Will Find You aims to provide an immersive experience where the world evolves in tandem with your decisions, and a dark, twisting narrative is slowly revealed through fully voice acted dialogue.

It Will Find You follows Julia, a woman struggling with depression after tragedy has caused her life to fall apart. Needing some time away from the world, she returns to her now empty family home, seeking solace in her childhood.

Arriving amidst a terrible storm, Julia quickly realises she is not alone, as a horrific entity stalks the once beautiful woodlands surrounding her family estate. Under the deafening roar of the raging storm, Julia will have to fight for survival against the creature, while plagued by horrific visions that make her question her own reality.

With the climax, the curtain will be drawn back revealing a shocking conclusion that turns the game upon its head, in a shocking conclusion, you won't see coming.

It Will Find You is a promise, not just a title. Julia is not alone in the woods, and the creature stalking her will not rest until it has claimed her life. Players will have to run, hide and defend themselves from the creature's onslaught, ultimately escaping, or becoming its next meal.

It Will Find You is a fully voice acted experience narrated by professional actors from across the world. A lot of time was spent ensuring we found the best people for each role, recording them in a professional grade sound studio and then mixing them into our world to make the experience more immersive.

The world of It Will Find is a dark and foreboding place, using dynamic, Volumetric lighting and detailed environments to create an oppressive sense of isolation. From the shadowy forest to the warmth of Julia's family home, each setting is brought to life in Unity to create an immersive, engaging experience.

FAQ:

How many people worked on It Will Find You?

The game has been a solely developed by myself as a passion project following from Captive Audience. Many voice actors, an awesome composer and some great rubber ducks have contributed along the way though.

Is this a direct sequel to Captive Audience?

Whilst the game is set in the same universe, it does not directly follow on from Captive Audience, and as such can be played without knowledge of the previous game, though it will definitely enhance the gameplay experience to have played it.

How did It Will Find You come about?

After finishing Captive Audience, I knew there were more stories to tell in the universe and began to plan out what could be explored next. At the time I was completing my Masters Degree in Games Design, and thought my final project would be the perfect opportunity to start developing the next step in the saga. From there it continued past graduation to where we are now!

How many endings are there?

Currently the game has 8 endings.

Are there achievements?

Yes! There are currently 33 achievements in game.

Are there subtitles?

Yes! The game is fully subtitled.

Is there controller support?

Not at the moment, keyboard and mouse are required to play.

Did you make the 3D models that populate the game?

No, I am a terrible 3D modeller and so relied on royalty free assets from websites such as turbo-squid, and the unity asset store. A full list of artists can be found in the credits. Some custom models were also created by Gary Gough, the artist from Captive Audience.

Who made the music?

Stefanos Yiassemides was the composer for It Will Find You and created all tracks except for the trailer music. Feel free to show him some love for the awesome work he did!

Where can I see a list of your voice actors?

All voice actors are fully credited in the game, so definitely let them know what a great job they did!

Will there be future updates to the game?

Whilst there will definitely be fixes and performance patches, content updates are less certain. This is due to working a full time job around solo development, and the fact I believe this story is complete.

Will there be another chapter in the Captive Audience Saga?

6 titles including Captive Audience and It Will Find You have been planned out, but the continuation of the series will depend on the success of this title. That being said I love the universe that’s slowly coming into being and would love to delve further into it.

If you have any further questions please feel free to drop me a message, or comment and i'll aim to reply asap : )

Great Game, I did have a few bugs playing after this video such as voices playing over each other or not playing at all but seeing subtitles. There was also another bug where I could not enter the cave as it was blocked by rocks. Other than these bugs I had an amazing time playing it! Had me looking outside all the time for the monster during the start. The replay factor is great as well, I restarted a few times trying different things and finding new parts to the story or events that I didn't notice before.


So i tried streaming this game last night. Ill say upfront, i like what this game was going for. The graphics are solid, the voice acting falls on the decent side, and i was genuinely interested in the story. So before you read on i want to make it clear, i liked this game. The part where the monster first shows up was really well done and scared the crap out of me! :) Its just that i can't say i  recommend it due to some issues i encountered. There were in fact,  a few game breaking problems i encountered more than once with this title. 

1, Some scripted events seem to fail to trigger.

2, No save feature, i get the feeling that this game was made with the idea of finishing it all in one go, which is fine, but if the game isn't long enough to warrant a save feature, then a check point feature would probably do well with this game.

3, No clear direction for the player. This was probably my biggest personal issue with the game. I don't like games to hold my hand, but i always appreciate clear objectives. A simple journal entry is good enough however, this game doesn't seem to even really hint very well where it would like the player to go. If it was meant to lean on exploration, that would be fine, however then that crosses over with the fact that there is no check point or save feature so if you accidentally corner yourself and get killed, you have to start the whole game over again and since it would appear that some of the scripted events are time based, that can get really frustrating.

4, Sequence breaks. During my stream i seemed to do certain things out of order and ended up bugging out some of the scripted events. I'm pretty sure i caused the creature to de-spawn somehow as well. I would like to call back to the previous issue i stated about no clear direction for the player as i think that some clearer direction for the player would help prevent these sort of things from happening. 

Those were the major issues i had with the game. I've recently started studying game design and learning C# so believe me when i say i truly think that none of these issues are cause by lack of competence or negligence on the team who made this game. I completely understand that a lot goes into making games and there are bound to be a few problems here and there. I just thought i should bring these things to your attention as i do like this game and would love to try and play it again once all these issues are ironed out, if you see fit to iron them out that is, if not, thats okay. I'll also include a link to the entire segment of my stream where i played your game. Feel free to scrub through it if you're interested in seeing some of the issue i spoke about. I'm not the sharpest crayon in the tool box so its entirely possible that all these problems were my fault so feel free to point that sort of thing out if anything jumps out at you. Keep up the great work.

Hey Marshall, thanks for your comment!

This game was built as a master's project with the central theme of promoting intra-diegetic immersion, which is what led to a few design choices like the removal of checkpoints, a save system etc. The core concept was to create an experience you'd sit down for and finish in one go, or die and come back to later, rather than picking it up intermittently, with the idea being it would improve immersion to not have breaks in the story.

This is also the reason for a lack of clear direction, outside of what is given to the player in the dialogue. A lot of the sequences reward a player reacting naturally to the situation, e.g. trying to use the phone to call the police, which was an experiment to see if the situation could guide player action as oppose to it being driven by linear instructions. Whether that worked or not is up for debate, but I hope that helps explain the thought process.


With regards to scripted events failing it's entirely possible, but some also have variants based on what actions you've taken, so what may seem like a failure may infact be an alternate event happening. I did test all events thoroughly prior to the last build so they should all be functional.

Sequence breaks should also have been compensated for but if I get the chance I will revist the project and apply a lot of fixes i'd been interested in making. Unfortunately during the past year I was under a contract that prevent me from further developing the project, and so now it's a case of finding a stable build and picking that back up if I get the time.

Glad to hear you enjoyed elements of the game though!

Hey no problem, and i appreciate the informative reply. I did notice when i played that some events do turn out slightly differently, such as the deer in the road and the first phone call you receive. I did think that was very interesting and was caught off guard by that, good work! Yes, if you're ever able to pick this project up again i would love to see it tuned up and firing on all cylinders if you're ever able to come back to it. Ether way, keep up the good work. :)

This got me pretty good 😂 you'll see right in the 1st few seconds... (full gameplay starts @ 25:00 in the vid). I'll have to revisit this & see if I can get some of the multiple endings!

Is the game finished and needs no more updates?

Captive Audience is finished yes! We originally designed the game as part of a group project at University, and unfortunately could not continue development after. Our writer did create a spin-off/sequel though called It Will Find You! Its also free on itch so check it out :)

Thanks for the reply! I was originally asking about whether It Will Find You was finished or not. I know that Captive Audience is finished!

Sorry that was my bad, I got confused about which page I was on! Yes for now It Will Find You is complete, and all 8 endings are playable. While the story is complete though there are definitely improvements i would like to make somewhere down the line :)

(1 edit)

I know this isn't the time nor place probably but I've been so corrupted by the one single thought that I can't get off my mind. I've been wanting to know if the game Captive Audience is based off of a real life event? The girl at the end is a real girl, seeing that her possible pain looks so realistic, I've been so burdened, so weirded out by the thought of why nobody asks about it, but why does she look like she ACTUALLY in pain, with a broken heart? Everytime I think about it, I honestly shed a tear. I know that's what the game is, a sad experience. Though, I mainly am concerned why nobody questions why it feels, odd, like the voices, the way its all put, especially the end with the real life clip of that girl, it all feels like real pain, like their all actually unset from something. But my concern is when you see the girl at the end. I'm sorry if this is too much to read. I've just been wanting to know for so long. Do you mind explaining it all? It'd really help me out. Thank you in advance.

Fun little game!
