Recently, the first-person horror game Unholy has officially released its teaser trailer. Unholy is a first-person horror game with a strong stealth element produced by Duality Games. The story setting is similar to that of Bloodborne, which revolves around a plague, but in terms of gameplay, Unholy is a first-person horror game more similar to Agony and Scorn. The players take on the role of a mother who is looking for her baby in this infernal world.
Unholy has a very motherhood-driven narrative, where gamers play the role of a Saidah mother in search of her abducted child through the infernal streets of the last city on this desolate planet influenced by a mysterious plague. According to its Steam page, the question at hand is “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?” It seems that there will be a madness meter for yourself to keep track of humanity and sanity levels, both of which are influenced by the plague.
The game is set on a desolate planet in the last human city. This last bastion is divided into multiple regions according to different classes, which are shrouded in horror: oppression from deadly, high-level creators that roam the streets. Here, the last survivors of humanity live, as the game immerses players in a unique and bizarre experience. Players can complete gameplay in a variety of ways in addition to stealth, but can also take advantage of the social order in the city. Ruled by the caste system where humans are lower than the creatures that make up the upper caste, you must negotiate and interact with different members of the system to beat the game.
Unholy‘s artistic director Tomasz Strzałkowski is also a well-known game artist who has been involved in game design such as Painkiller, Bullet Storm, Warmachine, and Inner Chains.
Developed in the polished Unreal Engine 4, Unholy is scheduled to land on the PC platform next year.
