Though we want you to discover the story for yourself, we can at least give you a brief idea of the backstory and setting for the game.
In the game, you play as Victor Neff, a guy who's just moved to the big city with his wife, Alicia. They used to live in a smaller town, but with the economic recession, job opportunities started to dry up and with a baby on the way they really couldn't risk unemployment.
Though caring and outgoing, Victor isn't exactly an ambitious guy. Up until now he's led a pretty comfortable life. He's long nurtured a dream about making a name for himself in the music industry, but aside from buying a guitar and learning a few chords, he hasn't actively tried to pursue it. While waiting for the "timing" to be right, he's been working in the office of a company manufacturing farming equipment. A job he got since the boss was a friend of his parents.
Lately the company has been having financial difficulties, and when Victor got an advance notice about his department possibly getting axed, he and Alicia decided to move to a new city -- with better prospects -- and start life anew.
The game begins the morning after they arrived to their new home. While trying to get settled in, they soon discover that all is not as it seems in the quiet, unassuming apartment building...
