Psychological Thriller ‘Martha is Dead’ Reveals Free Demo Coming Later This Week
Publisher Wired Productions and indie Italian studio LKA have released a new gameplay trailer for Martha is Dead in development for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC-via Steam later in 2021.
Further, a free demo has been revealed to be available during Steam Next Fest from October 1 through October 7. This is the first time players will be able to play the game, but it will only be available for a limited time.
The new trailer focus on the Second World War’s impact on the Tuscan setting.
“The setting has always been an incredibly important part of Martha Is Dead,” offers Luca Dalco, Founder & Director, LKA. “Italy in 1944 was a country paralyzed by panic and paranoia. With the Germans occupying the north as the Allies liberated the south, loyalties were strained as the nation quite literally split in two.
“Udo Kier was a perfect fit for the role of German General and father of the twins. It is a real coup for the team to land him.”
Martha is Dead takes place in the Italian countryside while the Allied and Axis forces battle it out. A young woman named Martha has drowned in a nearby lake, and her body lies on the shores. Dealing with this loss, Martha’s twin sister must not only endure the grief of having lost a loved one but must also face the horrors of war head-on.
Martha is Dead was first announced in 2019 but has been delayed to its current release window. The developer behind The Town of Light is creating an atmospheric horror adventure for players to immerse themselves in, which they hope to get right.
