Story Trailer, Updated Demo Arrive for ‘Dead of Darkness’ [Watch]

With Steam Next Fest right around the corner, Retrofiction Games is aiming to get more eyes on their upcoming Resident Evil-inspired action-adventure title Dead of Darkness with a brand new story trailer. Currently, there’s a “gameplay-focused” demo available on Steam, which has been tweaked with some new fixes in time for Steam Next Fest, which kicks off on June 10.

Along with the obvious introduction of the story, the new trailer also shows off new locations, characters and enemies in Dead of Darkness. As well, Retrofiction has announced that the dialogue in the game will be fully-voiced by “an awesome international cast”, with voice actors that have previously worked on games such as Remothered: Broken Porcelain, Immortals of Aveum and Warhammer 40k.

Drawing cosmic horror inspiration from the likes of Clive Barker and John Carpenter, along with the aforementioned Capcom classic, Dead of Darkness takes place in England, 1985. Private Investigator Miles Windham is tasked with assisting the local police with missing persons investigation on Velvet Island.

But once he arrives on the island, Windham soon realizes that things aren’t quite right. The residents are behaving strangely, with nobody seeming to be interested in clearing up the case. There also appears to be a growing hostility towards the Windham’s presence in the community, which soon escalates into the investigator having to fight to make it off the island alive.

In addition to having the hallmarks of classic Survival Horror titles, including limited resources against numerous enemies, inventory management, exploration and puzzles, Dead of Darkness mixes things up with a detective mechanic, where players must gather clues and combine them with items or parts of the environment, adding a new twist on the familiar puzzle-solving mechanics.

And just for the Cosmic Horror fans, the game also includes a sort of sanity mechanic, where each enemy encounter takes a toll on your mental state. The lower your mental state, the stronger the hallucinations you will experience – with some even breaking the fourth wall.

Currently, Dead of Darkness doesn’t have a release date, though it’s aiming for a release later this year.
