Assemble Entertainment and developer Tainted Pact, have revealed a 17th April release date for their horror title ‘Suffer the Night’. The new title brings a horrifyingly haunting descent into the campy slasher goodness of the 80s, plus the added bonus of classic dungeon crawler gameplay.
In ‘Suffer the Night’, players take on the role of Stacey Liden, a painter who specializes in horror illustrations in her isolated woods-bound cabin. After receiving an envelope containing a mysterious floppy disk, Stacy boots it up on her old Eldrixon personal computer and begins playing. As she progresses through the terror of the text-based adventure, she’s visited by a mysterious and threatening stranger, urging her to finish the game. The strange and horrifying things within the game begin leaking into the real world…will Stacey survive, or will she succumb to the terrors around her? Only one thing is for certain: don’t let him get in.
Key Features of ‘Suffer the Night’:
- Horror Beyond Comprehension: A highlight of this title is the text-based dungeon crawler “game within a game” filled with grisly scenarios and vivid descriptions of the atrocities wherein. Players will need to flex their old-school gaming muscles to progress within the stories, both inside the Eldrixon and out.
- Don’t Let Him In: While playing through the floppy disk game, the mysterious figure who delivered it isn’t shy about making his presence known. Be sure to address any…interruptions…he causes, or suffer the consequences.
- A Chilling Combination: Suffer the Night expertly weaves two genres of horror games into one, balancing the chilling anxiety of the text-based adventure with the dread of first-person survival horror
‘Suffer the Night’ releases 17th April, 2023. A free demo is now available to play on Steam so you can try the game now ahead of release.
