Wired Productions and LKA have announced the launch of highly anticipated psychological thriller Martha is Dead today.
Martha is Dead is now available today and will be available digitally across PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. Get it now to experience a gory and yet compelling psychological thriller story.
The game has been developed in Unreal Engine 4 by LKA, the guys behind the psychological adventure The Town of Light. This new game is a dark first-person psychological thriller that is set in 1944 Italy. It blurs the lines between reality, superstition and the tragedy of war.
The game starts in the Italian countryside as Allied and Axis forces turn the nation into a pincered playground. On the shores of the lake lies the body of the young woman named Martha who has been drowned and desecrated. Her twin sister must now find out what happened to her while the war draws near.
“Martha Is Dead was always the natural next step for LKA after The Town of Light,” offers Luca Dalco, Founder & Director, LKA. “The game builds upon our signature style of deep, multi-layered narratives to deliver a story that explores loss, relationships, and psychological distress, all while the mass hysteria that was the latter years of the Second World War plays out in the background. It’s been a long journey for everyone here at LKA – one specifically tied to the countryside around us and the history behind it – but we think it’s been worth it.”
“This is a milestone release for both Wired Productions and LKA,” says Leo Zullo, Managing Director, Wired Productions. “There’s never been a story like this before – one that touches on issues in quite the way Martha Is Dead does. It’s an important tale to tell, and one we think will stay with players long after the credits have rolled.”
The physical version of the game has a reversible sleeve, fold out double-sided poster, collectable sticker sheet, and a digital download Tarot card pack. This will be available on March 10, 2022. Both digital and physical versions are priced $29.99.
The Collector’s Edition for the PS5 will be sold in limited quantities only with only 1,000 units. It is now available for pre-order exclusively via the Wired Productions Store. This will also have a bonus digital copy of the game for the Steam Store.
