Official Press Release


Search for the Missing Pieces of Your Mind in a Story-Driven Indie Game that Combines Intense Action, Stealth and Survival Horror

BERLIN, GERMANY (JANUARY 17, 2018) – Phantom 8, a Berlin-based first-time indie developer, is delighted to share a new in-depth behind-the-scenes video for their premier title PAST CURE, which has set its sights for release on February 23, 2018 on Windows PC, PlayStation 4 and XBox One.

PAST CURE puts you in the role of Ian, a former elite soldier, whose story begins at his brother’s safehouse where he’s hidden himself away from the world and his nightmares. After years of experimentation, coupled with years of torture in prison, Ian is now telekinetic and can also manipulate time. These powers take their toll on Ian, whose mind is fractured; often drifting between reality and hallucinogenic states. With the help of his Brother, Ian sets out on a path of revenge and discovery, not knowing what lies around the next corner.

Simon Gerdesmann, Managing Director, Phantom 8, said, “Developed by a team of only eight, we aim to showcase that desire, talent and ambition can help you deliver a title that stands apart from what’s traditionally expected from an Indie studio. PAST CURE is our first title, and having secured multiple awards throughout its development, the team is excited to finally have the game out in the wild.”

PAST CURE will be available soon for pre-order and purchase on Steam, Green Man Gaming, Fanatical and other leading digital distribution platforms. Bonus content for digital and physical pre-orders will be announced soon. The physical retail release of PAST CURE can be pre-ordered now for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One at a wide range of retailers, including Amazon, Best Buy, Gamestop and Target.

PAST CURE will release worldwide on February 23, 2018 for $29.99/£29.99/€29.99. For more information about PAST CURE, please visit

A full press kit with screenshots, trailer, art and logos is available here:


After years of being tortured in dark prisons across Europe, former elite soldier Ian lives in his brother’s safehouse, struggling with the consequences of the military experiments he was put through. They twisted his mind; imbued him with preternatural mental abilities such as time manipulation and telekinesis, and fractured his grip on reality. Driven by hallucinations and his thirst for revenge, Ian enlists his brother’s help and sets out on a thrilling hunt; both for the perpetrators of the conspiracy against him and for the truth underlying his torment. During the course of his mission Ian experiments with his new powers, quickly coming to realize their inherent danger — with each use, his sanity frays a little more, drawing the nightmarish attention of something beyond reality.

In pursuit of the men behind his imprisonment, Ian soon realizes that his true enemy may be hiding within his own madness.
