There’s no colorful co-op play waiting for you here, just a dark setting that’s more likely to send shivers down your spine.

As the trailer reveals, you start out in Castle Rock dungeons and must find a way out of the dungeon together. You must work together to do this, but you must also complete other passages separately. At least you’re never completely alone, after all, you’re connected via a walkie-talkie. You can’t go it alone here, as you can only solve the puzzles that block your path together.
