Indie developer Conor McKenna has released a new teaser trailer and details for his upcoming modern day indie RPG CyberThreat.
CyberThreat is set in the fictional city of Edendale where you play as a young man or woman going into their final year of study in a new school. Up to and after their arrival however, there’s been a string of mysterious “disappearances” of students their age.
The one thing they all had in common, was that they were badly abused by their peers through cyberbullying. The number of missing persons is on the rise and the police don’t have any leads on these unexplained incidents. But what happens when the target of the cyberbullies is you?
CyberThreat has been pushed back back from its original 2017 release as more is being added to the game and is now scheduled to release in 2018/2019 for PS Vita and PC.
