From Press Release:

Tuesday, 8 August 2023. Team17 and Australian developer Catchweight Studio today announced a partnership to bring CONSCRIPT to PC in 2024.

Set in 1916 during the Great War, CONSCRIPT blends the punishing mechanics of classic horror titles into a cohesive, tense, and original survival horror experience. In CONSCRIPT players explore the trenches of Verdun as a lone French soldier searching for his missing-in-action brother to ensure a home goes unbroken.

I’ve long dreamed of making games and of creating stories for people to play. Over the last six years, I’ve been happy to see a community of players grow around CONSCRIPT, and I’m looking forward to working with Team17 to launch the game for the community and players around the world in 2024.”
