We have had a nice long bit of time since we last had anything for Agony out here and here we go with some new looks at the ultimate goal of the game: The Red Goddess. At least that is what we have been led to believe from Madmind Studio as she is our way out of Hell in the game and that is what we are supposed to aim to do. That all may change when Agony releases on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC on March 30th, but I highly doubt that unless that is all part of the big twist in the game. You know there will be those given the location of all of the events and demons being demons and all. They do always look to screw over the mere mortals who are looking for redemption in these cases.
Anyways, we have another good look at The Red Goddess for Agony now and it looks like she may be one of the true rulers of Hell here. That or one of the greatest threats as it looks like she can also control some demons out there but also has a whole lot fighting against her. It is hard to tell from this new cinematic kind of trailer we have here, but it is another fun look at the hellish world we are going to be in. I am hoping that this is all to keep the true story and twists of Agony a secret. That would be the best reason why we have not received any more actual gameplay for the game as we are only a few months out from launch.
Agony — Red Goddess
Agony is a first-person survival horror game currently in development. Players will begin their journey as tormented soul within the depths of hell without any memories of his past.
The special ability to control people on their path, and even possess simple minded demons, gives the player the necessary measures to survive in the extreme conditions they are in.
By exploring hostile environment and interacting with the other weary souls of the hellscape, the hero will soon understand that there is only one way to escape from Hell, and it will require a meeting of the mystical Red Goddess.
If that was not enough for Agony today, we have another little bit to hear here for the game. I do mean hear as it is the musical theme for The Red Goddess as well. It seems a bit basic but I am going to go on a limb and say this will be playing in the background of her scenes and not be much more. It is a nice creepy melodic bit of music and I am interested to see how it is used in Agony. It just seems like it would be hard to just have it playing in the background as nothing so far has indicated that would be how scenes in the game will play out. Either way, have a listen to the theme of The Read Goddess just below and then figure out how it will be fully used.
Agony — Red Goddess' Theme
Do you have any new thoughts on The Red Goddess here for Agony or is she still cloaked in a bit more of mystery nonetheless? Do you think that Madmind Studio is keeping things close to the vest to build more mystery or to make sure we have many surprises in the final game? How do you think the music of the game will be used or will it always just be an ominous kind of thing to keep our nerves twitching? Let us all know down in the comments and then feel free to discuss. For more on Agony, be sure to stick around here. We will keep all of the news and updates coming as best we can.
