Are you sitting comfortably? Good - because this trailer will get under your skin very quickly and make you very, very uncomfy. Scary right? I’ve been practising that delivery for a while now. Anyway, the psychological horror game Martha is Dead looks terrifying and it’s just been announced that the game will be coming to consoles and PC in the new year.
The Steam page for the game says: “Martha Is Dead is a dark first-person psychological thriller, set in 1944 Italy, that blurs the lines between reality, superstition and the tragedy of war. As conflict intensifies between German and Allied forces, the desecrated body of a woman is found drowned… Martha!”
Here is the trailer for Martha is Dead...
But what’s this, there’s more to the tales as Martha’s twin sister Giulia must deal with the horror of losing her sister and the fallout from her awful murder. “The hunt for the truth is shrouded by mysterious folklore and the extreme horror of war that draws ever closer.” How intriguing.
Martha is Dead will encourage players to explore the countryside, play with puppets, and communicate with the spirit of The Lady all in this tense adventure. Not only is there the murder to deal with but the war will be ongoing and players can read about it all in papers, telegrams, and hear the events on the radio.
What might draw players to this experience is that the developers claim this is the first indie game on Steam to come with the default language as Italian, which fits right into the story. The actor, music, lore, and environment all aim to be authentic to the time and place, and if they pull it off it will be deeply atmospheric.
If you’re interested in reading more about the game, you can check out the Steam page right now. Otherwise, you’re going to have to wait until February 24, 2022 to find out more about Martha’s murder and the horrifying circumstance Giulia will have to navigate.
