HÖGANÄS, SWEDEN—MAY 2, 2022—The FORTIFIED DARKNESS™ franchise takes place in a world where an ancient evil has manifested itself through a secret cult of worshipers.

The stories told are not limited to any specific era and can span anywhere from year 1000 BC or year 3000 AD. Each series in the franchise will have its own theme and each title in a series will have its own unique story. “I’ve always wanted to make horror games, but I didn’t know where to start, there are so many things I want to try out. So I decided to come up with a world that would allow me to experiment with various themes yet have it all make sense and feel connected.” said Ahmad Wehbe, the author behind the creation of the FORTIFIED DARKNESS™ franchise and the Enduring Dreamers™ franchise.

The FORTIFIED DARKNESS™ franchise is divided into different series called branches which represents a common theme for each series, the first branch—The Branch of Tradition—in development is Soil of Canaan™, where the theme will be about exploring cultural buildings such as castles, palaces, and other similar structures and uncover a secret cult’s unholy traditions. The development of the first title in the Soil of Canaan™ series will be recorded and shared as video Devlogs for anyone interested to watch.
