Beijing, China - June 13, 2022 - GameZoo Studio, the developers behind upcoming horror/adventure title SCP: Secret Files, today announced their participation in Steam's Next Fest event. 

Running from  13th - 20th June, Next Fest is a celebration of Steam games currently in development and regularly features hundreds of demos, updates, and livestreams. Having recently surpassed 100,000 wishlists on Steam, the developers of SCP: Secret Files are excited to offer players their first gameplay hands-on with the release of the game's official playable demo


Containing an entire chapter from the final game, the new demo investigates SCP-701 ‘The Hanged King's Tragedy’. Players will be tasked with exploring a mysterious hydroelectric station and making sense of the strange events that have occurred there. 

To give players a taste of what they can expect from this new chapter from SCP: Secret Files, GameZoo Studio have also released a brand new trailer. Watch it here


Taking inspiration from the real-life SCP Foundation collaborative writing project, SCP: Secret Files tells a number of stories concerning the activities of the fictional organisation tasked with protecting humanity from otherworldly phenomena and anomalies. You join as an assistant researcher, and must complete a strenuous induction program that will make you question everything you know. Featuring multiple protagonists and gameplay styles, and relaying its story through cutting edge Unreal Engine technology, SCP: Secret Files aims to be the most faithful video game adaptation of the SCP mythology to date.


Xiaoliang, Producer at GameZoo Studio said: “It’s our privilege with this game to bring to life some of the most iconic and memorable cases from the SCP Foundation. SCP-701 ’The Hanged King’s Tragedy’ is one of the team’s favourite tales and we can’t wait to see what players think of our adaptation! Be prepared for plenty of scares and keep your eyes peeled for some other special SCP easter eggs!”
