All information and discussion relating to the cancelled alpha versions of REMOTHERED and it's characters will be limited to this page only, thank you!

Remothered (stylized as REMOTHERED), also known as Remothered 2D, was to be a classically styled 2D survival horror game built on the RPG Maker XP engine using Adobe Photoshop. As of 2012, this version is no longer in production.

It was the spiritual predecessor of Remothered: Tormented Fathers.

Development Edit

The project dates back to 2007 when Chris Darril began releasing concept art for a fan-tribute project of Hifumi Kono's 1995 Super Nintendo classic; Clock Tower. The game simply titled REMOTHERED did not go into full development until sometime in 2009 when the project was being built the RPG Maker XP while using Adobe Photoshop to draw 2D assets somewhat mirroring the aesthetics of a classical painting.

From 2009 to 2012, the project had undergo minor changes including updated sprites, the story and several characters having their roles switched to avoid mix up with the original Clock Tower. During this time, a sequel was also announced that would take place before, during and after the events of the original game titled Remothered: Grave Torments which would follow a new protagonist named Katherine Gale. Very few details about the sequel's story were ever released to the public, as Chris Darril wanted to focus on the development of the first game.

In 2013, the project was put on a temporary hiatus while Chris Darril lended his talents to other projects such as Forgotten Memories: Alternate Realities and NightCry. During this time, he received several offers to purchase the Remothered IP, but Darril refused, opting to keep creative control of the project.

As of 2016, the project resurfaced with new art, characters and the storyline completely revamped, the game is now known as Remothered: Tormented Fathers, confirming that the previous versions of the game cancelled. The current version merges many of the ideas from the original REMOTHERED and it's planned sequel Grave Torments.

Version 1 (2007) Edit

Ss8

The very first version that was shown to the public featured a young woman named Jennifer who appeared to be in her twenties. Very little is known about this version's story other than the fact that it was about several young women entering The Manor only to be chased by an immortal killer that lurked inside. Only a handful of images were released for this version and the only known footage is thought to be lost.

Known Characters Edit

  • Jennifer (Last Name Unknown)
  • Unnamed Friends

Known Stalkers Edit

  • Unnamed Killer

Known Locations Edit

  • The Mansion

Version 2 (2009) Edit

Ss6

Early stages of Remothered version 2

Development Edit

This version included much more depth and new environments such as a forested area surrounding the manor, many more stalkers and a flash forward sequence featuring a reporter covering the murders that would occur over the course of the game.

This second version contained many changes to the game's story and characters, most notably the main protagonist, still named Jennifer, now with the last name Sutton, now a young girl in her early teens instead of a young woman in her twenties.

While exploring the manor the player could encounter many of it's inhabitants such as a house keeper named Madame Svenska and a gardener named Richard Felton (no relation to the Richard Felton of Tormented Fathers). Secondary enemies called Homunculus were introduced which resembled small porcelain dolls which could attach themselves to the player and alert the nearest stalker to their presence. The game also contained supernatural elements the occurs in the mansion.[1] Many screenshots for this version still exist today, but most of the footage was lost.

Although this version featured several plot similarities to the 1995 horror classic; Clock Tower, it was said to be more of a personal fan tribute to many classic horror games of the same era. Unlike the original game, Jennifer's friend will not die immediately once the game begins, the other girls will also join in Jennifer's exploration inside and outside the mansion. [2][3]

Plot Edit

Ss1

Remothered with more detailed surroundings and updated sprites and moths' first appearance.

The games opens up to a flash forward sequence of news reporter Dakota Wrang, that a massacre occurred at a mansion in the countryside of Romsdalen, owned by the Baroni family and found bodies within the house, most of them children all brutally mutilated.

Jennifer along with her friends were orphans living at the Flemmington Girls Institute until they were suddenly adopted by a rich landowner named Steven Baroni. The girls would be taken to their home by their teacher Ms. Mary Reed (nicknamed Rose), who also an alleged employee of Mr. Baroni, is responsible for taking them to the mansion.

After arriving into their new home, Jennifer begins to see paranormal activities after seeing a ghostly figure in a mirror at the foyer and out her bedroom window. At the dinner table, Lotte questioned where was their new adoptive father, Mary responded that he was away at some important meeting. Mary then expressed her concerns about Jennifer at the table and opened up to what she had saw earlier, Anne didn't believe Jennifer that she's always seeing things that no one else can see, claims she's just crazy. Mary took Jennifer to the bathroom to speak to her privately. Mary disagrees that she's crazy and tells her shes just sick because of this new beginning and to take her medicine.[4]

I'm curious

... I do not know, it has metallic sound... maybe it would be better to take a look!

Some time later in the game, Jennifer and Lotte are in their room getting ready for bed, Anne walks in angrily telling Lotte to turn down the TV because she can hear it from her room and leaves. Jennifer begins to hear a metallic noise outside of the bedroom, Lotte shrugs it off and says that "they have turned on their TV" (players can make a decision whether to a take a look or not). Jennifer decides to take a look and Lotte agrees to go with her.

While out looking the source of the sound, Jennifer heads into the bathroom and finds Laura hung by her hands in the shower, mutilated from the neck down. Jennifer is in terrible shock and looks in the bathtub and sees a head poking out of the bloodied water and a giant pair of scissors jumps out towards Jennifer. An immortal killer stalked the mansion's halls, killing the girls one by one.

Ss14

Only known screenshot of the final version of Remothered 2D. Jennifer Sutton's new design and more detailed environment.

Development Edit

This third version restarted development completely with a revamped story and updated characters. Not much is known about this version, as very little material was shown aside from character designs and minor plot information.

One of the game's main stalkers, Robert Baroni, was now portrayed in the figure of a grown man rather than a small child and wearing a porcelain doll mask. Several concept arts were released of his updated appearance, showing that his signature scissors were now fused directly into his right arm.

First this version was said to be using a 3D graphics engine and was to be released on PC and speculated on the Wii U, but also Darril tried to re-imagine the game RPG Maker XP graphics and with more detailed background.[5]

Unlike the previous versions, the game was going to have 3 playable characters; Jennifer Sutton, Lindsay Silverhat and Rosemary Reed (no relation to Rosemary Reed from Tormented Fathers).[6]
