Mystery Thriller 'Martha is Dead' Coming to Xbox Series X in 2021

Richard Walker

The Town of Light developer LKA has announced Martha is Dead, a first-person mystery set in 1944, surrounding the discovery of a woman's body at the side of a lake. Drowned, desecrated, and left deep in the Italian countryside, upon Martha's body being found, her twin sister must deal with the aftermath, as the threat of war closes in.

As well as real-world locations, the Xbox Series X title will also include connections to historical events, local folklore and superstitions, and "deep psychological distress". Built using Unreal Engine 4, Martha is Dead promises "an incredible visual experience that blurs the boundaries between gaming and reality."

"Martha’s brutal murder brings with it a mirrored sense of misery," said LKA Founder and Director, Luca Dalco. "This game will shock, make players question the truth and like The Town of Light, help continue a conversation around subject matters that still carry much stigma."

The death of Martha will provide the lynchpin for Martha is Dead's multi-layered narrative, while her twin sister harbours her own hidden secrets. You'll be able to seek the truth when Martha is Dead launches for Xbox Series X and PC in 2021. Check out the in-game trailer below.
