She never expected to find him dead.

The Old Eagle Motel is a third-person, narrative driven, paranormal mystery game set upon the Great Plains of an alternate New Mexico, following the story of our dual protagonists: Dakota; a kind-hearted, older Cherokee journalist, and his young but fiercely determined Malaysian goddaughter, Alya.

Unexpectedly, the spiritual and emotional connection between the two allows them to communicate across time, enabling them to overcome the obstacles they face in pursuit of uncovering the truth of Dakota’s death at The Old Eagle Motel: Anything Dakota changes in the past will have consequences for Alya in the present.

However, not everything is as it seems as the godfather-daughter duo slowly come to suspect there’s something more sinister to this mystery than a simple murder. What truly happened in this desert oasis, where they always have time for you?
