The bad news is: Martha is dead. The good news is, her tragic passing is the focus of an upcoming psychological adventure from LKA, the Italian creators of The Town of Light.
It's 1944, a time when "conflict intensifies between German and Allied forces," when the "desecrated body of a woman is found drowned" in Tuscany. She is survived by her twin sister, the "young daughter of a German soldier," who must now "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 draws ever closer." As she begins to "encounter situations and discover things no one should have to," in her grief she comes to understand that "mortal death was the easy path compared to this one marred by mental and emotional distress which lingers on."
As with its predecessor, Martha is Dead is described as a "first-person dark psychological thriller" that blurs the line between fact and fiction. Created in photorealistic 3D using the Unreal Engine, the game promises to combine "disturbing and dreamlike tones with a mix of history, superstition and psychological distress."
Co-funded by the European Union through the Creative Europe Programme and published by Wired Productions, Martha is Dead is due to arrive sometime in 2020, though apart from its launch on Steam for Windows PC, no further release date or platform details have yet been announced.
