This project was born with the desire to create independent and authentic video games to reach success from its essence.
At my 46 years, today I decide to work for the value that the gamer has for me and his experience on the game, above an economic result.
My over 30-years career, has allowed me to evolve and choose the identity with which I want to seal each of my video games.
In 1939, the Nazis create a mysterious inner division of the SS known as the Dunkelstaffel. Headed by the unscrupulous psychic Friedrich Von Darka, the Dunkelstaffel starts to carry out several practices of occultism and begins the construction of a strange device known as P-571 capable of absorbing paranormal energy into a psychic's mind.
To track down the esoteric activities of the Nazis, the Ally Forces establish a secret agency known as the ISA ("Institute of Supernatural Affairs") which is headed by the renowned psychic Alexei Krakovitz in secrecy.
Soon, after finishing the construction of the P-571, the Dunkelstaffel deploys several scout teams along Europe in search of supernatural sources that can fuel the brand-new device.
One of the scout teams obtains an ancient manuscript which reveals the existence of a witch who lives somewhere in the woods near the northwest coast of Norway. According to the document, the witch is a supernatural entity who can cast an evil spell called "The Curse of The Dark Moon".
After an intense searching, the Dunkelstaffel locates the witch and forces her to invoke the curse. The Nazis kidnap the witch and her eight daughters so as not to undo the curse.
The Dark Moon is an evil source of paranormal radiation which is harmless to humans but it is a breeding ground for spawning the most aberrant creatures of the darkness.
Captive somewhere in the Norwegian Sea, the witch desperately seeks help in the paranormal dimension, a place where powerful psychics often hang around. Her cry is received as a nightmare by Alexei Krakovitz, who rapidly travels to Norway with two of his best field agents, Jane Gore and Akiro Kagasawa.
While the Nazis wait for the eclipse to charge the P-571 with a massive amount of paranormal energy to control an army of supernatural creatures, the agents must rescue the witch and her eight daughters to save the earth from darkness.
