After being witness of the gruesome (and mysterious) loss of her parents, found dismembered at their home Fran runs away into the woods, together with her only friend: Mr. Midnight, a black cat that Fran had previously received as a present from her parents. In the forest, Fran loses senses and when she recovers, she is at Oswald Asylum, an oppressive mental institution for children, with no trace of Mr. Midnight.
After having a dream about her beloved cat she decides to escape the institution to find him and go back to aunt Grace. Aunt Grace is her only living relative who she is very fond of.
Nothing comes easy for Fran. There is also a strange creature, Remor, who wants to prevent Fran Bow from going home at any cost. But she is determined to find her cat, return to aunt Grace and together find out who is responsible for her parents murders.

Key Features

  • Story driven psychological horror adventure game.
  • Unique and peculiar hand drawn 2D Art-Style.
  • Self- administer medication to open the terrible hidden world that will help solve puzzles and find objects.
  • A bizarre variety of puzzles designed in different levels of difficulty and mostly based on the twisted relationship between Fran Bow’s imagination and reality.
  • Old Arcade inspired mini-games designed to be part of the transitions in the story.
  • Interactive and occasionally playable pet cat, Mr Midnight.
  • Several interactive characters with unique personalities that will help or prevent Fran Bow going home.

(Further testing is needed in this to be more accurate, but it should be playable on most PC's)

7 days left to release our first game! Just one week left to release our 3 year project Fran Bow. We managed to get it on steam through greenlight and GOG, so these will be the first places to find it. Later on we will start working on the mobile versions and, if we make any extra money from it, start looking at the playstation and xbox versions! I can't wait to have time so I can put the game...

fran bow, release
Closing in on first game release.. Stressius maximalus. I haven't written one of these for a long time, but now it feels like a good time to recap what has happened with our game Fran Bow!

What we have learned, doing this just the two of us. And this is from my point of view of game development!

Making a big adventure game is a lot of work! When we started the idea of making Fran Bow, we didn't know how to m...

Videolog #7 - Answering questions & a 80's montage. Even more time has gone since my last journal entry, but now I remember that making these is great because I can just write it all out since nobody near me could handle all this talk!

We made another huge video update! This time we answered questions we had from our facebook and twitter.

But for us this was something more! From a creative perspective, m...

Videolog #6 - Give us the Greenlight to Go! It's been a while since we made one of these and it's mostly because after the indiegogo campaign we dove right in to working like maniacs and using the time gained to visit places we always wanted to get inspiration! And we have improved the first part of the game extremely! Looking at the alpha demo we feel it's really just a tiny taste of the full expe...

The last hours of our crowdfunder Hello!

Much has happened since the last journal entry and it's pretty amazing! We reached our goal on our indiegogo and even more than so! That part has left us in great shock, because we thought we would be struggling in the last minutes to get 80% and then borrow the last 20% from everyone we know somehow.. Well, we are really happy right now that we...
