Nyctophile Studios have announced their debut title, a horror game based on Aztec mythology titled Death Relives, will be launching soon.
Death Relives is launching soon, sometime by the end of Q1 2024 for PC (via Steam and Epic Games Store), Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, and PS5.
Here’s a rundown of the game, plus a trailer:
Death Relives takes inspiration from Aztec mythology, along with real historical events from the 16th century. The game immerses players into a nightmarish world where the players are trying to survive from long-forgotten gods. While struggling with Xipe Totec, the god of death, life, rebirth, agriculture, vegetation, and deadly warfare in Aztec mythology, players will also find themselves in real historical places, such as the ship that Hernán Cortés traveled to the land of Aztecs with. The dark and eerie atmosphere of Death Relieves also hides other entities lurking in the shadows, which will be revealed in the rich storyline while Adrian, our protagonist, progresses through the game.
Death Relives resurrects the ancient Aztec horrors, which require special items to deal with. The unique combat and stealth mechanics of the game require using these items effectively during the journey. However, while fighting against the ancient gods of the Aztecs, killing and sending their souls to the Mictlan, the underworld of Aztec mythology, won’t be enough.
