Draugen Shows Off Story Details in New Trailer
I am ashamed to say, this is the first time I’ve heard or seen Draugen before. But damn am I glad I was able to check this email with all these goodies in it. These type of adventure/mystery games hit that nostalgia bone of mine and I instantly fall in love with them. Draugen looks to be no different!

But now his sister has vanished and Edward must overcome his fears to follow her fading trail. Accompanied by Lissie — his steadfast companion and his only, tenuous connection to reality — he must embark on a dark journey into the misty fjords of rural Norway.
