We Are Not A Cult – The Church in the Darkness Debut Trailer Now Released

Inspired by real life events, Paranoid Productions delves into the radical movements of the 1970’s. The Church in the Darkness is an action-infiltration game, but the layout, the beliefs of the cult and the individual motives of the two leaders change each time. Ultimately, it’s up to you to figure out who the real threats are, who needs saving and to take action.



No one is forced to join a cult. It welcomes you. It understands you. It envelopes you until the words become more than truth―they make you whole.Persecuted for their radical beliefs, Rebecca and Isaac Walker lead their people into the jungles of South America. There, in the isolation of Freedom Town, they can finally escape the injustice of the US and follow the true path of the righteous… but an outsider is in their midst. As a former law enforcement officer, you have resolved to get into Freedom Town and check on your sister’s son. But life in Freedom Town may not be what it seems.


The Church In The Darkness


Every playthrough of The Church in the Darkness offers a unique version of Freedom Town with different character personalities and a shifting narrative told through investigation, observation, and action. How dangerous are the Walkers? Who are your allies and enemies? How far will you go to uncover the truth and save these people?

On a special note, the roles of the cult leaders were written specifically for Ellen McLain and John Patrick Lowrie; married in real life and well-known for voicing GLaDOS (Portal) and the Sniper (Team Fortress 2), respectively. The couple is also helping to compose the soundtrack―Ellen’s musical contributions to the Portal series obviously need no introduction.

The Church in the Darkness is coming to PC/Mac, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in early 2017. For more information, please visit their official website.
