The Devourer approaches… Horror Stories: Harvest Hunt, the single player stealth survival horror game from Villainous Games Studio, launches into Steam Early Access on July 26th 2023. Rise as Luna Nova’s Warden and confront the shadows looming over the cursed village. Will you become the savior of the community, or fall victim to the endless hunt?
Horror Stories: Harvest Hunt takes horror in a new direction by blending the replayability of roguelites with the tension found across the genre. Step into the role of an appointed Warden tasked with gathering precious ambrosia throughout a sinister, nonlinear environment in order to seek salvation. Wardens are not alone in their search, as the Devourer lurks throughout the fields preying for its next victim. Wardens must take a deep breath and steady their heart rates if they hope to see dawn.
The hunt is ever-changing, so strategic decision-making and adaptability are vital when facing the Devourer. Before each night of the harvest, Wardens must decide how much health they are willing to sacrifice in order to gain advantageous tools found across the Farmlands of Luna Nova. Cards are drawn to determine the fate of the Wardens ahead of each night. Cards may bring peculiar abilities, a bit of welcomed luck, and modifiers that affect both the environment and the Devourer alike.
From the unnerving soundscapes to the grim surroundings, Horror Stories: Harvest Hunt features a macabre atmosphere for Wardens to embrace. Delve into the horrors of the dense, hand-drawn environments backed by a chilling score from composer Jeff Broadbent (Resident Evil, Assassin’s Creed). Become lost in the darkness, unaware of what lies in the shadows, ready to strike.
