Detention is one of the most underrated horror games of this decade, and we’ve been eagerly awaiting developer Red Candle Games’s follow up Devotion. Now we have a release date for the Taiwanese indie horror.
The developer today announced Devotion will arrive on Steam from February 19 and released a new trailer to coincide with the news.
Devotion is a first-person atmospheric horror game depicting the life of a family shadowed by religious belief. You’ll explore a 1980s Taiwan apartment-complex that is somehow lost in time, and witness it gradually shift into a hellish nightmare. It concerns the stories of a family living there and follows their various forms of ‘devotion’.
Detention was a splendid mix of survival horror and historical fact, and there seems to be a slightly different blend to Devotion, but if Red Candle can get it right, we could be looking at one of the best horror games of the year.
