Silver Chains


Silver Chains (Cracked Heads Games) is a first-person horror game emphasizing story, puzzles, and exploration. After a car accident, you wake up in a mansion that is not as abandoned as it seems at first glance. Horrendous creatures lurk in it, constant scares and a mystery to solve.

During a storm, Peter has an accident and ends up unconscious. He wakes up in an abandoned mansion in England inhabited by horrifying beings. Unravelling the secrets of such a gloomy place is the only way to escape.


The mansion in which the game takes place is truly oppressive. Cracked Heads Games has made an effort to recreate a visually as well as auditory suffocating setting. The lights, the sounds, the effects… Everything contributes to the horror.


The only way to survive the paranormal creatures that inhabit the mansion is to run away or hide. Try not to be spotted while solving puzzles or exploring the house. These monsters will chase you to death! Fighting is not an option.


Although Silver Chains is unique, Cracked Heads Games does not hesitate to acknowledge the influence of horror classics: Layers of Fear, Resident Evil, Dead by Daylight, Outlast, and Silent Hill are some of the game’s terrifying inspirations.


Values delivered

Headup Games commissioned us to port Silver Chains to Xbox Series X|S to take the photorealism of the game to the next level. The result is a terrifying 4K Ultra HD experience optimized for Microsoft’s next-gen.

The biggest challenge of this project was to squeeze the power of the Xbox Series to achieve the highest audiovisual quality. The setting is key in this work, so we used the Unreal Engine to achieve eerie realism.

Unreal Engine is the most powerful 3D technology on the market. No other software offers as much realism in its textures, shaders, lighting and effects. Unreal Engine is ideal for virtual reality (VR) experiences thanks to its superb graphic options. For this and many other reasons, it has become the engine used by most triple-A studios. Beyond its power, Epic Games’ technology stands out as one of the most intuitive when it comes to prototyping. All thanks to Blueprint Visual Scripting, a feature that allows programming without code. With these virtues, it is not surprising that almost 8 million developers choose Unreal Engine. As for Catness, we have been using it for nearly a decade. Thanks to that experience, every game we work with, no matter its size, will have the resources to look like a triple-A.

We at Catness Games have specialized in Unreal Engine since our first day. Although we can work with engines like Unity, we prefer to focus on what we mastered over almost a decade. Thus, we can offer the most optimal results. It is a matter of quality, transparency and honesty.

Catness Games bets on Unreal Engine because we mastered it. We have been developing, porting, and publishing video games powered by Epic Games’ engine for over a decade. We know that we will help you quicker and more efficiently if your game is #MadeWithUnreal. Thus, we prefer to be honest. However, we can also work with Unity. Our team has several programmers specialized in this engine. Besides, marketing is one of the core elements of publishing, but it does not depend on any particular technology.

The recent rise of virtual reality (VR) in the video game industry has not gone unnoticed. We acknowledge the potential of this technology. For this reason, we have already worked with it both in video games and architecture. Although we have more experience with traditional platforms, we guarantee the same efficiency with a VR project. Of course, the same can be said with augmented reality (AR)!
