Developed by Italy-based studio Santa Ragione, Saturnalia is influenced closely by the folklore of Sardinia, Italy, and impressed by Italian Giallo horror movies (usually extra horror-esque thriller thrillers). In it, you management 4 completely different characters, all linked by way of a mysterious storyline that ties again to the “haunting traditions” of an historic village.
“The village itself is an elaborate maze with no two iterations being exactly the identical – you’ll have to discover and clear up mysteries of the sport largely unguided,” the sport’s web site reads. “Die, and watch the village reconfigure itself into a brand new type. Remedy puzzles and open shortcuts to new areas with instruments and objects you discover alongside the best way, unlocking every bit of the story with completely different characters, every suited to one other facet of exploration and investigation.”
All of that sounds nice, however Saturnalia’s distinctive artwork fashion makes me most excited. It’s like a mixture of stop-motion and sketchbook, which appears prefer it’ll lend itself properly to the sport’s horror parts. Test it out for your self beneath:
Santa Ragione is the studio behind video games like Fotonica, MirrorMoon EP, and Wheels of Aurelia. Saturnalia doesn’t but a launch date, however it should hit PC completely through the Epic Video games Retailer someday in 2022. The studio is planning to launch the sport on different platforms, however the timing on that is still TBA.
