Publisher PID Games and developer One Trick Entertainment have released Lempo, their new Finnish psychological horror game.
Here’s a rundown on the game, plus a new gameplay trailer:
“Sometimes you get truly lost. That’s when you call someone, and they send rescue people to get you. But what if they can’t find you? What if you are so lost, it is impossible for them to find you.
Do you believe in fantasy worlds? I didn’t either. Until I found myself in one.”
