The Story of Asylum

In 1939 the Asylum was established as the Country’s premier psychiatric institute for the criminally insane. At the time it was far from any crowds of Manila and many new government buildings were being set up in Quezon City in preparation for it becoming the Country’s new capital.

It was said that all of the worst and most violent psychiatric patients were brought to this place where they can be treated and where it would be safe to keep them from escape.

At the time the Country was still part of the US commonwealth, the Asylum was headed by a Dr. Vanicutt, a renowned psychiatric doctor from Pennsylvania. He was joined by his beautiful wife and their young daughter Anastasia.

After a mysterious and tragic accident Dr. Vanicutt’s wife was killed. Soon after her death Dr. Vanicutt sunk into a state of madness and insanity, some say he was even possessed. He tormented his patients, he conducted grotesque medical experiments and many died, evil consumed this place.

In 1941 when the Japanese invaded, they found what they thought was an abandoned building. After foolishly stationing a garrison of soldiers there they soon went insane and slaughtered each other. No one entered after that and the building was left to decay and ruin.

As the years passed the City grew up around the Asylum from time to time some unfortunate person would wander in the building to find shelter and they were never head of again. Such horrific acts were reported to have taken place there and it is said Dr. Vanicutt is still in there, torturing his patients, conducting his experiments and collecting their souls.

Now in 2019 the doors of the Asylum are open again, welcoming new patients. Enter and see if you can survive and discover the horrible truth about what happened in the Asylum!
