Will DreadOut continue its success in webcomic?

After gaining success in PC, one of Indonesian best selling horror games, DreadOut will be adapted into a webcomic in collaboration with CIAYO Comics!

The great news first came from CIAYO Comics’ CEO, Borton Liew. In his Facebook statement, Borton said that some of the Indonesian talents will team up to bring this idea to life. First, there is Dedy Koerniawan Soesanto from Padepokan Ragasukma who is one of the CIAYO Comic’s official authors for a horror comic called Sinawang. Then, the script will be written by Ella Hung.

“This comic will be a direct adaptation of DreadOut game,” said Borton to Gameprime.org. “There are 12 episodes that will be published once a week, starting from mid-July 2018 after Eid,” Borton continued.

Unfortunately, there are no further details about this webcomic including the storyline. But according to the statement, we can expect that the comic will be focused on Linda, the main protagonist of DreadOut.
