Purgatory - A Horror Adventure Game
A downloadable Purgatory
Now in Development: PURGATORY -
A Horror Adventure Game by Joel Mayer Productions
It’s a peaceful night in the Swiss Alps, when four students of a prestigious international School are on their way home from a wild night out partying. Among them are Alex, who just recently moved here as well as her new boyfriend Dennis.
Then it happens: a moment of inattention, a car that gets off the road, four lives that will change forever.
Alex awakens from unconsciousness in the wreck in the middle of the night and with nothing but a deep forest ahead of her. Her friends: gone.
The farther Alex wanders into the woods the more she realizes that there is something terribly wrong. After finding an old seemingly abandoned mansion and learning about the whereabouts of her friends it becomes clear that this night will decide on the fate of all of them. But the former inhabitants of the house are not the only ones with an unsettling past and Alex will not only have to face the demons ahead but also the ones she left behind...
Joel Mayer Productions is pleased to announce their currently in development horror adventure game, “Purgatory”. Featuring a rich low-res aesthetic reminiscent of classic SNES and Gameboy titles combined with the focus on storytelling of an Adventure Game.
You’ll be uncovering dark secrets of agonizing souls with danger as your constant companion.
To save your friends you’ll have to act quickly, using the fully keyboard-based control scheme or, if you want, taking advantage of the integrated Gamepad Support. You’ll be able to walk or run at will in a fast moving, side scrolling experience.
Throughout the night you’ll meet a cast of interesting and sometimes dangerous characters, all with animated portraits.
Your trusty mobile phone’s flashlight will be a guiding light when moving through the shadows, if you dare to see what’s hiding there.
There’s no room for flagpoles in your pocket. Alex can’t carry more than three inventory items, which can be dropped and picked up again at will, make for an intense experience, where you have to choose strategically which objects you will be carrying with you.
Fully illustrated cut scenes advance the story and lets you take a breather in between escaping from the flames of afterlife.
