Montague's Mount is disturbing psychological thriller set in the bleakness of an abandoned Irish island, featuring exploration and challenging puzzle solving. This game is part one of a two part story, some questions are left unanswered and open to interpretation. To thank our fans for our successful Greenlight campaign, we have added new voiceovers, clues and storylines, and also made the Oculus Rift demo available (which will update to the full version on its release).
The mixture of cold Atlantic water and coarse sand in your mouth brings you back from unconsciousness. Surrounded by the wreckage of a boat's hull, you can only draw one conclusion: your vessel has been torn apart by the submerged rocks. The secrets of the island must be uncovered if you are ever going to find a way to escape. Where is everyone; is the island really uninhabited; and what is lurking within the isolated caves?

Matt Clifton is a one-man development team. He explains what inspired him to create Montague's Mount...
"It was born out of a love of both video games and cinema. Long before I ever sat down to create my first video game (approximately 20 years ago) I could be seen waving a camera at just about anything. Over the years, certain movies have captured my imagination, namely One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest, The Shining, The Blair Witch Project, and more recently, Shutter Island. All these films have a common thread of isolation, desolation and touch upon thought-provoking issues.
Current trends within the gaming world have left the market awash with horror-esque games; many of which revolve around shock tactics or gory visuals to get their message across. My goal with Montague's Mount is to turn the Horror genre on its head by giving the player a combination of clever puzzles, a thought-provoking story that touches upon real issues (such as mental health), and stays true to my love of cinematic visuals.
As the game is set in Ireland, I have embraced the Irish language (Gaeilge). I believe Montague's Mount is the first ever mainstream game to use the Irish language. English audio and subtitles are of course available."
