A popular horror adventure that was delisted on Steam several years ago has now returned as a free download. Better still, it's free to download and keep forever.
This is certainly a strange story. The 2014 first-person adventure Betrayer first hit Steam way back in 2014. Delisted Games reports that Betrayer was ultimately pulled from Valve's digital storefront in 2021.
Developer and publisher Blackpowder Games has never publicly explained why the game was delisted, but it's assumed that because the studio went completely silent in 2015 and thus weren't round to support the game on Steam's community forum, it had to go. So why is back two years after disappearing?
Well, digital storefront GOG - owned by Cyberpunk 2077 publisher CD Projekt - saved the game. GOG has announced that Betrayer can now be found on its own dedicated GOG store page here, and it won't cost you a thing.
The game's official description: "Betrayer is a first person action adventure game that takes you to the New World at the turn of the 17th century.
"The year is 1604. You sailed from England expecting to join a struggling colony on the coast of Virginia. Instead, you find only ghosts and mysteries. What catastrophe blighted the land and drained it of color and life? Where are the settlers and tribes who lived here?
"Clue by clue, you must piece together the story of what befell this doomed settlement and find a way to set things right. You will be hunted by corrupted Conquistadors and ravening shadows as you explore an expansive wilderness in order to trace the brief, tragic history of the colony and search for survivors."
