Lately, I’ve been primarily covering indie horror games that have either hit Steam Greenlight or are already on the way. Alas Mortis is neither, as it’s still just a concept, but it sounds intriguing enough to warrant a mention.
From a former developer of Faceless, according to the project’s Indie DB page Alas Mortis is a “multiplayer deathmatch, survival-horror game where a group of citizens are trying to survive the hungry jaws of some type of flying, bat-like demonoid.” It sounds like Damned meets Jeepers Creepers and if that doesn’t excite you, I don’t know what will.
Unlike most horror games that tend to throw you into a terrifying situation alone, Alas Mortis will be built with multiplayer in mind, with nine players taking on the role of everyday people and another playing as the demon.
It’s a “terrifying game of hide & seek” where you survive or you hunt. The best part? It will be free-to-play, with two maps that will be available in the early-access version and more coming soon after.
It sounds like a good time. For now, all we have is some concept art, so you’ll need to use your imagination to picture what the actual game will look and play like.
