I couldn’t be more excited about Agony coming out next week. Not only are we going to be doing a live-stream on the day of the release, but if it looks anything like this you’ll see some serious screaming faces on camera:
I just love how it’s not your typical Hell that’s been influenced by decades of media, film and other games. This is just simply twisted. Twisted in such a way that’s less Zdzisław Beksiński, and more… Marilyn Manson? No fire and Lucifer, just more vulvas and naked succubi. I mean, even the Agony logo uses a iconically similar image to a female body part. From the Steam page:
You will begin your journey as a tormented soul within the depths of hell, without any memories about your past. The special ability to control people on your path, and even possess simple minded demons, gives you the necessary measures to survive in the extreme conditions you are in. By exploring the hostile environment and interacting with other weary souls of the hellscape, the hero will soon understand that there is only one way to escape from Hell, and it will require meeting the mystical Red Goddess.Agony features a full-fledged story mode as well as an open challenge system that randomly generates levels for players to explore and survive to gain new Highscores. In addition to featuring in countless “Most anticipated Horror Games 2018” lists, the kick starter financed title is set to challenge players with its brutal and malevolent environments.
