Duality Games announces Unholy
, a first-person stealth/horror game coming
next year. As you may notice from
this teaser trailer
this bears a resemblance to Agony, prompting an odd preemptive statement from
the developer: "We have many questions about that, so I want to clear this: -
it's completely different developer from Madmind Studio and its 'Agony'. I mean
- we won't make same errors like with Agony. We know how to avoid them." Here
are the details on the game:
Become Saidah, a mother in search of her abducted child. Venture through
morbid streets of the last city on a dying planet. Challenge a repressive regime
under which your whole life is determined by which social caste you belong to.
Save your child and find out if escape is possible.
Unholy takes place on a desolate planet where last members of the human race
live in the Last City. This sprawling metropolis is divided between castes, and
every day is shrouded in fear. Fear of being noticed by higher castes. Fear of
being killed by a mysterious Plague that is slowly consuming the city Fear of
being caught by one of the maniacs or mysterious beast that are going through
the streets at night.
Gameplay is a mix of horror and stealth game, where for each challenge can be
overcome in several different ways. Will you sneak through the guards unnoticed
or will you resort to murder, leaving behind you a trail of blood as you fall
into madness? As an outcast and a wanted person you have a unique chance to
exploit the caste system and impersonate different members of society. Your
playstyle is your own, but each has its consequences.
