Occult Blade Reveal

Occultists roam across Malorum in search of the knowledge that will deliver their people from the dead. They hide their faces beneath masks in deference to the truth itself, which is always hidden. Their Dowsing Blades are forged by spoken word, a ritual conceived from hidden runes retrieved from hidden realms. They cut not only flesh but the fabric that separates one world from another, letting the Occultist step between, both opening and lighting the way as blade, as key, as torch.

Apocalypse Studios defines a new approach to narrative in Deadhaus Sonata

The creators of Eternal Darkness are on a mission to bring single-player storytelling to the multiplayer genre with their upcoming ARPG, embracing a future in the cloud.

Deadhaus Sonata is still early in development, with a public alpha they’re calling “the First Age” coming later in 2022. Knowing that it’s easiest to find the right tools before kicking off work, Apocalypse chose to experiment sooner than later, testing a wide variety of engines and development software to create their game. The team tried both Lumberyard and Open3D but essentially decided that Unity offered the most established toolset to help them scale rapidly.
