For those with an insatiable thirst for erotic psychological horror, there's good news coming early next year as Movie Games Lunarium has announced a sequel to Lust for Darkness called Lust From Beyond, which is currently seeking funding through Kickstarter.
Rather than playing an outsider again, this time around players control a dealer in rare antiquities named Victor Holloway, who is "tormented by visions of a sinister land full of lechery and pain." Seeking answers to his "disturbing questions," Victor joins the Cult of Ecstasy, and through his eyes players will discover the cult's "life from within, getting lost in its blasphemous and sexual customs." When even the "pleasures of this world are [...] not enough," Victor and the cultists "attempt to enter Lusst'ghaa – the Land of Ecstasy beyond the borders of our reality."
As with its predecessor, Lust from Beyond will take place in two different worlds "full of desire, fascination and fear," one a Victorian mansion in our world and the other in a different dimension entirely. Inspired by the works of Lovecraft, Giger and Beksinski, the macabre environments are once again presented in free-roaming, first-person 3D, though the sequel promises "a completely new level of quality, with photorealistic graphics and very rich story, full of erotic and occult themes." While exploring the game's highly-interactive locations, you'll need to solve puzzles and occasionally run from – or possibly even fight – some "otherworldly monsters" you encounter along the way.
The current goal is for Lust from Beyond to be launched on Steam sometime in March 2020, but in order to do that, the team has launched a Kickstarter campaign in order to raise more than $11,000 (US) byJune 4th. Backers will get access to an exclusive demo of the game within 24 hours after pledging.
