Dry Drowning is the tale of Mordred Foley – a much maligned private detective – and his mission to lift the lid on a serial killer taking out targets in a dystopian future. Saddled by a dark past of his own, Foley’s world is one gripped by tyranny, where the hunger for power at the top results in society sinking to the absolute bottom.
Taking the form of a visual novel – complete with a script sharper than your average Netflix serial – players take on the role of Foley as he resumes his life as a detective, with a multi-branching story made up of 150 different threads placing heavy burden on every decision taken, and every line of dialogue uttered. Dry Drowning also features a unique ‘masks of deception’ system that highlights when a character is lying, with Foley’s investigations uncovering a world where trusting anyone quickly becomes folly.
