It is the season for all of the horror and terror to come out to play and now we have Martha Is Dead to join in the fun. Not that the game has released, or is going to release, on PC during this time. It is just time for us all to know that it is coming as LKA has a short bit for us to take in along with a nice little announcement. The normal stuff when a game is first up on the block for us all to dissect and get ready for. This is about where Martha Is Dead is at as it is all cinematics and screenshots for now. Nonetheless, it does look like it could be another freaky title for us all to enjoy.
Martha Is Dead is an upcoming first-person thriller that is in the works that will place us all back in Tuscany during 1944. Yes, that is during WWII still. That does not change the fact that a woman is found drowned and her twin is now on a mission to find out what happened to her. All while dealing with other supernatural things and horrors galore. All steeped in folklore and other terrifying aspects. You know, the usual things we should expect from the high concept but set in the past. That and some amazing visuals as Martha Is Dead will be using various real-world locations to keep us grounded in the story further.
Martha Is Dead — Announcement
Award-winning global publisher, Wired Productions, and acclaimed Italian studio, LKA, are pleased to announce a new global publishing partnership for Martha Is Dead, a dark psychological thriller tipped for release in 2020. This new collaboration demonstrates the strong strategic partnership between the two companies, joining forces once again to bring LKA titles to life and to market.
Following its debut title, The Town Of Light which released in 2016, Martha Is Dead continues LKA’s signature style of deep multi-layered narratives combined with real locations and a mix of history, superstition and psychological distress. LKA’s expertise for delving into complex and riveting subject matter that borrows from both fact and fiction helps to distinguish its development pedigree and passion.
Set in Tuscany, 1944, south of the Gothic Line, as conflict intensifies between German and Allied forces, the desecrated body of a woman is found drowned. Her twin sister, the young daughter of a German soldier must deal with the acute trauma of loss, while the truth of the brutal murder is shrouded by mysterious folklore and the extreme horror of war draws ever closer.
With photo-realism at its core and using advanced texturing techniques alongside full support for real-time ray tracing, Martha Is Dead is built in Unreal Engine 4 and is set once again to blur the boundary between gaming and reality by bringing human stories to life; amplified with high-level production, cinematic visuals and haunting audio.
Fans of first-person thrillers will experience a unique opportunity through Martha Is Dead, as the game offers a chilling story seen through the eyes of an innocent young woman who is on a mission to find out the truth. Along the way, she will encounter situations and discover things no one should have to… mortal death was the easy path compared to this one marred by mental and emotional distress which lingers on.
