There are tons of horror games available, but there's no mistaking a Rem Michalski horror game. With last year's release of the Downfall remake behind him, the indie developer of The Cat Lady is preparing to bring his distinctive brand of horror to adventure audiences once again with his latest title, Lorelai.
We don't yet know much about Lorelai just yet, but we do know that the titular protagonist lost what little she ever had one fateful day when "her whole world disintegrated." Rather than break her, however, the tragedy only strengthened her resolve. Refusing to give up, Lorelai is determined that "she will fight. And even death won't stop her from getting it all back."
While that's it for story details thus far, the early screenshots and gameplay footage confirm more of exactly what we've come to expect from Michalski: a side-scrolling, supernatural adventure with deliciously surreal imagery and unique lighting that is sure to send a shiver up your spine even if you don't really know what's going on. And all this creepiness will be wrapped up in a third-person presentation featuring HD graphics, full voice-overs, and an original haunting soundtrack.
Lorelai is still a good year away from release, with a late 2017/early 2018 target projection, but it's getting the jump on a Steam release early with a Greenlight campaign in need of support.
