1C Company has announced that they are working on two new PC titles, both deep and dark tales worth experiencing. The first is the heaven and hell themed, third-person action title, Devil’s Hunt (which will also release on Playstation 4/Xbox One). Devil’s Hunt will see players going to Hell and back again in a battle between Demons and Angels. It’s based on a Polish fantasy novel, “Equilibrium”, and brings to life the battle between light and darkness. It’s up to Desmond to use his fists and claws and must ultimately decide which side of the war he’s on. This is planned for a 2019 release.
The second is a roleplaying game set in the Lovecraft universe, Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones. Stygian is centered around the themes of horror, loss and madness, made famous by H. P. Lovecraft. The upcoming original title developed by Cultic Games offers a mix of rich RPG world building and turn-based tactical combat for PC, Mac, and Linux, represented in an illustrative 2D visual style that manages to be both quaint and terrifying. Players will journey from a doomed Arkham into the depths of the Abyss, creating their own character based on one of eight Archetypes and carve a path through a broken and mysterious world. The game will use a unique Belief System to determine how character sanity is affected by the warped reality they face. It also affects the availability of dialog options, as well as their consequences, in a given situation. Physical combat will be challenging, spellcasting will have dire consequences, and sanity will be strained to the breaking point by unknown abominations. This is also planned to have a release in 2019, and an early demo is now available on Steam.
“Devil’s Hunt and Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones will deliver deep, challenging gameplay and dark, mature themes for PC action and RPG players,” said Nikolay Baryshnikov, VP of 1C Company. “Gamers and media will be able to put these two exciting games through their paces at Gamescom, so please come and see us at the show to experience heavenly gameplay and hellish subject matter!”
