Thanatophobia, created by Death Knell Games, is an old-school, third person survival horror game that goes back to the roots of the genre. A thought-provoking journey into darkness and depravity, the game has a focus on puzzle solving and storytelling over intense action..

Delve into Thanatophobia’s immersive storyline about ex-cop Sam Dehaven out to get justice from a serial killer that has directly affected his life.

The title, Thanatophobia (meaning fear of death or fear of dying), has several ties to the theme and setting of the game. Phobias in general are in large part a shaping foundation of some of our gameplay mechanics. Themes of death linger and become more and more evident as the story progresses.
