Originally a Kickstarter title, Madmind Studios bizarre new take on the familiar theme of eternal damnation, is almost here. Courtesy of Mastermind Games, Agony arrives on May 29th.
Hellfire and brimstone
Yeah that’s definitely… weird. But Agony also looks pretty cool, with some amazing visuals. As twisted as they might be. The game was also on the receiving end of a lot of hype when it was announced and subsequently landed on Kickstarter. So I imagine there are a ton of horror fans out there that are eagerly awaiting its arrival.
Fortunately for them, they won’t have to wait too much longer, as the game officially arrives on May the 29th. Agony isn’t just a one trick pony either, and will feature two very different ways to play.
The narrative in the game is a cool one, so of course there’s a campaign to play through. In Agony, you play as a disembodied soul, possessing demon after demon as you try to find a way out of the inferno.
Agony throws players in the midst of hell where they strive to stay alive and solve the riddle behind the mysterious Red Goddess; architect of this place of sorrow and pain, and the sole entity with knowledge of how escape… but there is more to the story than it seems. Haunted by nightmare creatures, players gain the ability to possess demons and other souls to find their way out of hell.
Then on top of that, there’s also a rogue-like mode. In that arena, players are presented with a randomized map to battle through, as they strive for points. If that’s all Agony was, it’d be a little lacking, but as an add-on, it’s pretty freaking cool and definitely a smart way to extend play.
Agony is set to be available for the Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
