Key Aspects of the Game –
True Survival Horror – Limited resources, unique puzzles, and disturbing environments. Players will have access to multiple weapons, but will need to make tough decisions on when to use precious ammo.
Witch Beasts – Face off against horrific creatures that were once human. These wretched souls have lost any remaining sense of humanity, now reduced to ravenous beasts. The Skin Witch’s gifts have made the beasts very tough to kill, but if you can only remove their skins…
Non-Linear Gameplay – The mines sprawl in all directions, almost a labyrinth unto themselves. Players can choose to take different routes, and they can also use explosives to demolish tunnels to prevent creatures from catching them.
