Top marks for controversial horror title
Wired Productions and developer LKA have released Horror title for a new trailer for the period piece Martha is DeadGeneral Chat Chat Lounge The video spotlights the many critical accolades that the title has received since its launch on the PlayStation, PC, and Xbox platforms back in the dying days of February.
For those reading for the first time, Martha is Dead is set during the final embers of World War II. A young woman travels to Italy to identify and recover the brutalized body of her sister, drowned by a person or persons unknown on a sad, secluded beach. There is, of course, more to this ghastly murder than meets the eyeas our protagonist embarks on a terrifying journey that could rip her very sanity asunder.
While Martha is Dead Has flown slightly under-the-radar – smothered by some of the season’s larger releases – it found favor with critics and players, while also leaving Sony raising its eyebrows on some of the title’s more distressing sequences. Personally, I am yet to find the opportunity to experience its horrors, but I will admit to being fascinated by the terror of its adult themes, less the Monster Movie thrills of your usual horror game, and perhaps something that is determined to fester a little. further under the skin.
Martha is Dead is available now on PlayStation, PC, and Xbox. The PlayStation version features “modified” sequences to remove player agency from some of its darkest moments.
