Independent developer Blackwood Specter announced Skin Witch today, a new game in the survival horror genre. Trapped in an underground mine you were sent to investigate, you soon learn you’re not alone. In the deep dark, skin-changed beasts lurk behind every corner as you struggle to escape. Fill them full of lead, or burn them to a crisp to make sure they stay dead. Skin Witch is expected to hit the PC in Spring 2020.

Key Aspects of the Game:
- True Survival Horror – Limited resources, unique puzzles, and disturbing environments. You’ll need to fight to survive, but part of staying alive is knowing when to pick your battles.
- Witch Beasts – Face off againt horrific creatures that were once human. These wretched souls have lost any remaining sense of humanity, now reduced to ravenous beasts. Ammunition is scarce, and it’s even said that some of these creatures may not stay dead for long…
- Non-Linear Gameplay – The mines sprawl in all directions, almost a living thing unto themselves. For the sake of saving resources you may choose to take alternate routes, or avoid ones you know to be dangerous.
