Candles of the Dead - upcoming horror game for iOS, out Q1/2017

Hello people! Here is a teaser video and some screenshots (WIP) of our upcoming horror game for iPhones and iPads.



We hope to get this game out in February 2017, but if we cannot make it, then March 2017. We still have some things to do, but are getting there...

WOW , as a hardcore fan of horror games can't wait for this one but i got multiple questions:-
1- i noticed the FPS is too low at the beginning of the trailer , is it because the game is WIP?
2- is it a story driven game or just Collect some stuff game (slenderman , eyes horror game , etc)
3- MFI support?

1 - The video in the trailer was slowed down to create a dreamier effect. In the game you have five graphics quality levels to choose from to make it playable. And on the lowest it gives around 20fps on our 2012 middle tier Android phone (dual core, 1.2GHz...). I can run the highest quality level on my iPad Pro full 30fps no problems.

2 - The game has a story, and it's about collecting some items and reaching the end. You can try fight with some enemies, and perhaps win, but not all - best avoid them all. Mostly it's about exploring the surroundings, the house and what's inside, above, and below, around, and avoiding the enemies.

3 - No MFI (or VR) support in the first version - if the game starts to sell, we'll make it better.

Forgot to mention...

The game has five areas, and small outdoors sections, and no loading screens after the first one (and after you die) - we tried to make the experience as smooth as possible. But depends on your handset, some areas inside the house are quite heavy for the GPU, but elsewhere it should work faster.
