An independent group of Polish urban explorers have created a video showcasing many of the “beautiful and mysterious” locations that were used as an inspiration for the developers of indie horror mystery game, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter.
Known as the Adventure Hunters (in Polish: Łowcy Przygód), the group have created a short documentary film in which they visit and discuss many places referenced in the title.
Mateusz Stan, a member of the group, said: “We are promoting Polish creativity and alternative tourism, including urbex.”
Martin M. Drews, journalist and creator of the Adventure Hunters, added: “It’s a brand new level of immersion. You can play the game, and after that you can visit real places and feel like a game character. I think it’s a special, fresh way for tourism.”
Currently available with English and German subtitles, French and Russian translations of the video are also in progress.
In our review of the Astronauts-developed The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, we awarded it a prestigious score of nine out of ten, concluding that, “This is easily one of the best indie titles released in 2014.”
