First Psychological Thriller Game Actually Created by Clinical Psychologists





7 December 2016




It's difficult to not label it a psychological thriller when you collaborate a video game with clinical psychologists, although Watershed revolutionises the boundaries of all manner of genres and titles.


Watershed, an upcoming interactive video game set in England, combines real clinical and behavioural psychology with a provoking and deeply customisable non-linear storyline, in addition to the latest advancements and graphics of Unreal Engine 4.


Featuring sixteen real personality types, over a dozen professional skills and traits, standard and non-binary playable character genders, all in addition to a dynamic sexual orientation scale, every playthrough is unique and accurately personalised to the user’s own specific preferences, based entirely on real psychological concepts and academic references.


From Gestalt clinical therapy, to psychodynamic dream interpretation and CBT, the player is introduced to a wide array of modern psychological techniques and styles, in an engaging, real-word based setting.


From the moment the player enters the psychologist’s office, to the second they step out the door, every detail and line is modelled on how an actual session is conducted. The progression of the provider-patient relationship, and the overall willingness of the player to continue engaging in the therapy, changes the outcome and prognosis over the course of the game.

About Watershed’s Collaborating Psychologists

Dialogue and content within Watershed’s clinical scenes were consulted in advance to writing and development with licensed and accredited clinical psychologists, with a cumulative experience of over 50 years.

Bringing diversity to video games

Including a diverse, multi-racial cast of characters is one of the paramount features found throughout the game.

Watershed hopes to expand the cast further as the game progresses.

The Video Game Leading the Fight Against Homophobia





7 December 2016



Confronting homophobia starts with countering the harmful stereotypes that exist in both our culture and media. Rampantly depersonalised, though often totally non-existent, the LGBTQ community faces a unique challenge of confronting one of the least diverse fields of the entertainment industry.


From Fallout New Vegas' effeminate male prostitute calling the player 'sugar', to Indigo Prophecy's fashionable gay best friend of the protagonist, these stereotypes do more harm than good to the greater LGBTQ community.


Instead of the stereotypes or abject alienation of major titles, Watershed highlights important trends and movements facing LGBTQ young adults today, in a highly interactive virtual world. A dynamic sexual orientation model allows players to comfortably express their preferences, while naturally permitting the option or fluidity over time. However, other characters engage and react to the protagonist’s sexuality in different yet meaningful ways, free from the trivialisation found in mainstream games.

Just like films and TV programmes, young adults often want to identify with the characters they follow throughout the story. Unfortunately for LGBTQ audiences, this is a virtually impossible with current video game titles. Watershed hopes to change this trend for the better of all audiences by raising awareness of the diverse community video games bring together.

Bristol Recreated in 3D For Upcoming Murder Mystery





7 December 2016




With its picturesque landscape and world-renowned architecture, it’s unsurprising screenwriters and authors alike choose Bristol as the setting for numerous films and productions. However, now an upcoming psychological mystery video game, Watershed, showcases not just the city but the people and culture as well.


Bristol, one the largest cities of the United Kingdom, sits on the watershed of the Avon River of West England.


From sunset picnics at Brandon Hill, to local ciders and ales at a true Bristolian pub, Watershed showcases charming West Country culture as no other works have done before.


Of course, featuring only the city proper would be just half the experience. The people themselves define every aspect of Bristolian culture and this is properly reflected by the plentiful and original characters throughout the game.


Watershed hopes to boost tourism to the city with over a dozen prominent locations realistically modelled in the game. From the shops of Park Street, to notable local cafes, colleges and landmarks such as the Clifton Suspension Bridge, Bristol residents have the unique advantage of knowing how to navigate the city before the game is even released.
