A new psychological horror title, Devotion, is announced and Devotion is bringing with it the horrors of the 80s and religion have to offer
We will soon have another horror title to look forward to as we just had the announcement of Devotion pop up here. This will be the next title in the house of Red Candle Games and it looks like it will take us to the 1980s in Taiwan to play out some new puzzle-solving adventure in a first-person game. Devotion also looks to have some other religious overtones mixed in as the story will focus on a family of three going through some kind of event. It really is not all too clear as of yet, but the game is coming.
To make things further confusing for Devotion, also came with a teaser to try to explain things more or get us excited for the announcement. It shows very little in terms of what can be called gameplay, but it looks like we are definitely going into a weird world mixed with gameshows and reality TV from the era. Or maybe not as this does not explain much more of the official announcement and could just be something on in the background. Your guess is as good as mine as there is still so little to go off of besides what we have below. There has not even been any word on platforms either, so take all of that as you will.
Devotion — Teaser
‘Devotion’ is a first-person atmospheric horror game set in the 1980s Taiwan.
“Be careful what you pray for…”
The story centers around a seemingly ordinary family of three that lived in an old apartment complex. Explore the nostalgic house in the 80s where religion plays a significant role in their daily life. When one day the same house that once filled with joy and love had turned into a hell-like nightmare, and by venturing in the haunted and confined space, each puzzle leads you closer to the mysteries nested deep inside.
- First person 3D psychological horror game
