About Control

Control is a third-person shooter video game created by Remedy Entertainment, developer of critically acclaimed action-adventure video games including Max Payne, Alan Wake, and Quantum Break. A mind-bending supernatural adventure filled with fast-paced superpowered action, Control is the story of Jesse Faden, who finds herself caught in the midst of a deadly conflict between a secret government agency and otherworldly forces invading and corrupting ordinary reality.

The Hiss is a hostile paranatural force of resonance that invaded the Oldest House on October 29, 2019, resulting in the near-destruction of the Federal Bureau of Control. Originating from an alternate dimension, the Hiss influenced FBC Director Zachariah Trench into unleashing it using the Slide Projector Object of Power. The Hiss's source of resonance was cut off by Jesse Faden when she deactivated the Projector; however, the possessed Hiss agents still lingered in the Oldest House, continuing to pose a major threat.

We live in a room, and there's a poster on the wall. We stare at it and we think that's the whole world. The room... and the poster. The picture's something nice - a landscape, a famous person. Like in that movie... what is it called? The prison movie. The room's a cell, and the picture, it's different for each of us. It can be beautiful or terrible, but we're all transfixed. But it's all a lie. Something to distract us from the truth. They're lying to us. We're lying to ourselves. The room's not the world, the world... is much bigger, and much stranger. There's a hole hidden behind that poster that leads to the real world. We all feel safe in that room. But sometimes... sometimes something crawls out from behind the poster, and the ones that see it happen freak out, and try to forget what they saw.
