A collaboration between developer LKA and publisher Wired Productions is bringing LKA to the market with Martha is Dead. A dark psychological thriller with a rich narrative, lots of lore and real-world locations set to release in 2020.
Following its debut title, The Town of Light which released in 2016, Martha is Dead continues LKA’s style of multi-layered narratives combined with real locations and a mix of history, superstition and psychological distress.
“At LKA we want to tell stories that push your imagination to the limits, while embracing those real-world elements that make our narratives more immersive and grounded,” said Luca Dalcò, Founder and Creative Director, LKA. “We’re delighted to be once again joining forces with Wired Productions, a publisher who shares our vision while providing incredible support to bring our game to market.”
Set in Tuscany, 1944, south of the Gothic line, as conflict intensifies between German and Allied forces, the desecrated body of a woman is found drowned. Her twin sister, the young daughter of a German soldier must deal with the acute trauma of loss, while the truth of the brutal murder is shrouded by mysterious folklore and the extreme horror of war.
“We are delighted to be once again working with the incredibly talented team at LKA as their ability to bring stories to life is once again demonstrated with this unique project,“ said Leo Zullo, Managing Director, Wired Productions, “Martha is Dead is a beautiful and haunting adventure that will take players through an unforgettable story, and we’re confident it will leave a mark with gamers as it has done with us.”
If you're a fan of first-person thrillers, Martha is Dead is just for you. The game offers a chilling story seen through the eyes of an innocent young woman who is on a mission to find out what happened to her sister. Along the way, she will encounter situations and discover things no one should have to. Death would be the easy path compared to what lingers in the dark.
