“Lethe – Episode One” is Released!


KoukouStudios and Faber Interactive are proud to announce that after four years of development, our debut title, “Lethe – Episode One” has now been released!

The Game is currently
available on Steam and through the Humble Widget for Windows PC.
There is currently a 10% discount during first week to celebrate its release! 
Keep in mind that by choosing the latter you have additional options of directly supporting our studio and through that the development of future episodes and games. We plan to expand the amount of stores in the near future to improve availability.

An OS X version is planned for later this year. “Lethe – Episode One” was built with the Unreal Development Kit and although we’d love to see a Linux version too, without access to the engine’s source code it is technically impossible right now. Although that could maybe change depending on how well the game will be received.

Press & YouTubers are welcome to contact us at Please keep in mind that it can take up to two or three working days before you get a reply as we don’t have dedicated marketing personnel and we reply all mails on our own. We also launched a Press Page and a subscription list that you can register to by visiting our Official Website.

Many of you asked why it took so long. KoukouStudios has its origins in the modding scene of the early 00’s. It wasn’t before 2012 when we decided to make our passion a profession. We started from nothing and financially supported Lethe’s development completely on our own. Many times by doing one or two other jobs. We had no publishers, investors or paid promotion campaigns either, yet we managed to create a quality experience that meets our expectations.

And of course we thank you for supporting us during all this time and we really hope that you’ll enjoy our work and see the effort we put into it. Please don’t forget to help us spread the word! Use your social media or any other means available to you. Thanks!

Lethe gets a Release Date!

Quite some time has passed since being Greenlit, so we thought it was about time to make our Store Page public with all the new media we have been collecting. And in case you might have missed it, we released our new trailer last week. So check it out if you haven't already:
Some of you might have noticed we have updated the descriptions on our pages, because some aspects were too vague and could easily lead to misunderstandings about the nature of the game.
We're currently focusing on a PC-only launch, while aiming for an OS X release some time later this year. Currently we split our time between the Closed Beta, the patching of bugs, finalizing content, doing promotion and whatever else shows up along the way. Thus we might not reply to your messages right away.

Now that all of the previous is out of the way, we are happy to announce that Lethe - Episode One will be released on Steam for PC on August 1st 2016!

For all matters regarding Press and Reviews, we'd kindly request that you contact us at
