About This Game
A suspicious suicide. A chilling curse. A malevolent power. Finally, a wicked dark secret. This is Derceto, a legendary Louisiana mansion where, against your better judgment, you’re drawn into a world of shadows to explore the darker side of Jeremy Hartwood’s imagination.
Despite a paralyzing sense of personal danger, your quest for truth drives you to investigate the old house. But, you didn’t know that, by entering Derceto, you’ll be plunged into the daily nightmare that was Jeremy Hartwood’s life. You weren’t prepared for the torturous howls that resound from deep within its halls. You didn’t foresee the shadowy corridors that seemingly have no end. You couldn’t anticipate the brooding, gloom-filled rooms, the pervasive weight of dread, the heavy sense of evil that gills the atmosphere and the very house itself.
