The Peterson Case, the 1947 Roswell-set alien horror game developed by
Quarter Circle Games and first announced in February 2018, has been retitled Once Upon A Time In Roswell and will be published by tinyBuild, the publisher announced. It is planned for release across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in late 2020.
Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:
You look at the case files strewn across your desk, the green lamp illuminating the coffee stains that disfigure the wood. The radio plays the news quietly in the background. The Peterson Family… missing for over a week; no trace, little evidence. Passed from one detective to another, finally coming to rest in peace on your desk.
Going over the paperwork, something gnaws at you; people don’t just disappear into thin air. Something is always left behind. We always leave something behind.
The radio picks up, yet another tale of little green men and flying saucers. You tell yourself it’s a load of baloney, but truthfully it creeps you out as much as everyone else. Closing the case files, you pick up your hat and prepare yourself. This afternoon you’re going to The Peterson’s home to conduct a final search. Your intention to find them… dead or alive.
