It All Started With An Idea – THE PARASIGHT Turns Two
Hi Everyone! …or maybe I should start with “Good-day, Little Red-Cap”? I’m Bartosz Kaproń, founder, Creative Director, and CEO at THE PARASIGHT.

BLACKTAIL has hit its Alpha milestone!
What does this mean? Essentially, our dev team can now play the main storyline from end to end and many of BLACKTAIL’s main gameplay features are now in place. This creates the foundation that we’ll be continuing to build on, but there’s still a long road to travel. From here, we’ll be polishing and tuning content we want to keep, and adding new art, quests, characters, monsters, music, and everything else that makes a game. There’s lots to keep the team busy as we work towards Beta.

Get Down to THAT Witch House Soundtrack
Contrast and duality are core themes in BLACKTAIL. Dark and light, past and present, myth and reality; these are the foundation of the design choices we’ve made (and are continuing to make) while developing this game. The music is no exception! To help the soundtrack reflect these themes, we’ve teamed up with our longtime composer partner Arkadiusz Reikowski on the project. He’s famous for his beautifully sinister work on games such as The Medium (alongside Akira Yamoka), Layers Of Fear 2 (for which his work was nominated for Best Original Score – Video Game in the Hollywood Music In Media Awards), and Blair Witch. We feel his expertise will bring an element of darkness to our musical vision for BLACKTAIL.
