Derry, Maine is just an ordinary town: familiar, well-ordered for the most part, a good place to live.

It is the children, or at least a few of them, who see—and feel—what makes this town stand out so terribly. Because it is in the sewers, in the drains, that IT lurks. Taking the shape of every nightmarish figures that you deeply fear and dread, IT usually appears as an evil clown named Pennywise.

When your brother goes missing during your sophomore year, you and your ragtag group of friends embark on a journey that following summer which only seems to lead you all closer to the horrifying answers that none of you are ready to find out. Look too closely and you might find out much more than you bargained for. And perhaps even meet the same fate as your brother.

IT seizes, bites, tears, kills, feeds… and IT will certainly not to be stopped by you and your measly friends.



Cordelia / Cardan Gutiรฉrrez (F/M): You have been friends ever since they had moved to Derry when you both were in elementary school. You have seen each other through your best and worst times, and they had also been there the most for you when your brother disappeared. When you insist on the fact that he might be alive, C is the first one to believe in you wholeheartedly. But they are also sure to not let you end up like him, dead and forgotten.

An avid bookworm and gentle to boot, they are always ready to cheer you up with a smile. But the threat of IT looms nearer and they have to choose between holding their peace or letting out half a decade worth of pent-up feeling.


Kabir Sevilla (M): He is what you would call the classic class clown. You have known him since middle school and not once have you been able to take him seriously because of his shenanigans. But whenever youโ€™re upset, you can count on him to make you laugh one way or another. He has a nice family and a group of friends who care about him so why, in the name of all thatโ€™s good and holy, is he agreeing to tag along on your road to hell?

Kabirโ€™s eccentricity and laid back attitude makes it hard for him to be taken seriously, but itโ€™s not something that he minds much. It is when he is dragged to the rollercoaster of the worst summer of his life, that he begins questioning if maybe he is the punchline of the joke this time.


Valerie Vuong (F): She is the last person people would expect to be part of your group. I mean, why would they? Valerie is smart, beautiful and a member of the cheerleading team. All of that accounts for at least hanging out with the popular crowd, right? According to her, not really. When you met her during your freshman year, she had immediately opted to sit with you and your friends during lunch, instead of all the other popular kids. One way or another, she has stuck with your friends ever since.

Valerie Vuong has many layers to her personality, some people may even call her shallow. But you canโ€™t deny that she doesnโ€™t back off from her beliefs and stands up for her friends. However, her real test begins when the nightmares become real.


Marcella / Marshall Novitsky (F/M): You would probably describe them as a hypochondriac and clean freak, and you wouldnโ€™t be wrong. The only thing that Novitsky fears more than germs is IT, and itโ€™s a very close race too. Your first memory of talking to them is when they started having an asthma attack in the middle of calculus and you were the student who got singled out to carry them to the nurseโ€™s office.

Underneath all their medical prescriptions and neatly arranged sock drawers, Novitsky is a snobbish asshole to everyone except you and your friends, who they had eventually unwillingly come to tolerate and even care for. But when their bad dreams start to creep in to their sanity, who will they choose between their friends and themself?



Olivia Rennick (F): She is the president of the newspaper club and a perfect combination of preppy and nerdy. When your brother went missing, she was the one who had opted to print out numerous copies of his picture and paste it around the town before even the police got around to do it. She takes great pride in her news articles too and Derryโ€™s peculiar history does not slip from her curious mind.


Wesley Kemner (NB): The newest addition to you group of friends, Wes has a specific interest in the occult and the townโ€™s history. While being the prime target for bullying was not on their agenda when they had moved to Derry, you and your friends have helped them move past that threat, for now. They grow particularly close to Olivia and together, they just might figure out the root cause of the rot in Derry.

  • Keep your friends close and your nightmares even closer.
  • How far are you willing to go so you can reach the root cause of the evil that plagues Derry? Or is this very town rotten to the core?
  • Hold the fate of your friends in your hands with every choices you make and everything you go through.
  • How did this all start? Is there even any way you can defeat this ancient entity? Or are all your efforts for naught?
  • Remember, what dies in Derry never truly stays dead.
