Publisher Skystone Games and developer Drop of Pixel announced first-person horror game Underworld Dreams: The False King launches in 2022.
While Underworld Dreams: The False King launches in 2022, the horror shooter will be available on Windows PC (via Steam) and Nintendo Switch. A playable demo is available now on the game’s Steam page, too.
Here’s a rundown on the game:
Underworld Dreams: The False King is the first game in the Underworld Dreams Anthology – the upcoming first-person horror series based firmly in the Lovecraftian mythos. Based on the works of HP Lovecraft (and Robert W Chambers’ The King in Yellow) and set in the 1980s, Underworld Dreams: The False King tells the story of a man who has tracked down his missing brother to a seemingly abandoned building that hides something much more sinister behind its decrepit walls.
- PSYCHOLOGICALLY INTENSE: Based on the works of renowned horror legends HP Lovecraft and Robert W. Chambers, Underworld Dreams: The False King aims to mystify and horrify players with a tale that’s both heartwrenching and mind-bending.
- RETRO HORROR: With an atmosphere akin to classic horror titles, ammo is limited, and save spots are rare. Be cautious or be disappointed.
- ENVIRONMENTAL STORYTELLING: The False King expertly crafts its narrative through the environment, its puzzles, and the mysteries the player encounters.
- COMBAT THAT COUNTS: Every bullet counts in The False King and health doesn’t magically recharge. You must learn when it’s wise to attack, and when it’s wise to run.
