LKA, the Italian studio behind 2017 psychological adventure Town of Light, has announced that Martha is Dead, its new psychological thriller, will be launching in 2021. Like Town of Light, Martha is Dead is set within the Italian countryside, this time during World War II, as Allied and Axis forces have transformed the nation into “a pincered playground”.
Finding the drowned, desecrated body of young woman, Martha, on the shores of a lake, you'll assume the role of her twin sister, dealing with the aftermath of her sibling's murder, as the horror of war in 1944 impinges on the rural region. The game promises “LKA's signature style of deep, multi-layered narratives,” according to Leo Zullo, Managing Director of publisher Wired Productions.
Built using Unreal Engine 4, Martha is Dead will also represent an “evolution in psychological storytelling,” says LKA Founder and Director Luca Dalco, full os “twists and turns for players to explore.” Martha is Dead is set to launch for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC sometime in 2021.
