Paranoid Productions has just revealed their next title, The Church in the Darkness, a top-down stealth game with an intense atmosphere. The game will deal with cult narratives, and offer changes in the story and gameplay every single time you play it.
Investigation is key in The Church In the Darkness as you try to figure out who you can trust. See the moody announcement trailer below. The game is due out on PS4 and Xbox One in early 2017.
The Church in the Darkness combines unique narrative with tight top-down action-infiltration gameplay in an open-ended environment. As Vic, an ex-law enforcement officer, you travel to South America to get into Freedom Town and check on your nephew, Alex. Play how you want – you can avoid detection completely, take on the guards using non-lethal methods, or kill anyone who gets in your way. But you’ll have to live with the consequences of those choices.
The game stars Ellen McLain (best known as GLaDOS in Portal) and John Patrick Lowrie (the Sniper from Team Fortress 2) as the intense Rebecca and Isaac Walker. You soak up the story through the town PA system, where the preachers share their dogma and beliefs. You find documents and letters scattered around camp which clue you into the true nature of Freedom Town.
