Yo, gamers! Mark your calendars for October 17, 2023, because that’s when Vlad Circus: Descend into Madness is set to haunt your screens. Developed by Indiesruption (the folks behind Nine Witches) and published by Blowfish Studios, this 2D pixel-art horror game is coming to a ton of platforms. We’re talking PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and Windows PC via Steam, Epic Games Store, and GOG.
Spooky Strolls Through a Victorian Manor
Vlad Circus ain’t your average jump-scare fest. You’ll roam a Victorian-style manor as Oliver “Lazy Ollie” Mills, a former circus clown with a murky past and an even murkier present. This isn’t a Sunday stroll, fam—expect to solve twisted puzzles and face hallucinations that will make you question what’s real.
The Unraveling Backstory: Vlad Circus’s Fiery Demise
Setting the stage in 1921, Vlad Circus went up in smoke, taking hundreds of lives with it. The survivors? Left scarred and disbanded. Now, eight years later, a cryptic invite from the original ringleader is reuniting this troupe for something big and likely terrifying. Get ready to unveil what’s been lurking in the shadows.
Navigate Your Sanity While Unveiling Secrets
Lazy Ollie’s had a stint at the Pennhurst Asylum, but not even that could mend his broken memories. Meeting up with the old gang and a lost love might do the trick, but beware—the manor’s got some nasty surprises waiting. Manage Ollie’s stress, confront nightmarish hallucinations, and solve mind-bending puzzles to uncover a haunting truth.
A Nightmarish Experience From Start to Finish
Diego Cánepa, the lead designer at Indiesruption, claims that Vlad Circus: Descend into Madness blends a “creepy atmospheric setting with a haunting narrative.” So, don’t expect any hand-holding; you’re in for an experience that’ll keep you second-guessing till the last frame.
Multi-Language Support Levels Up Accessibility
This scare fest isn’t limiting its horror to English speakers. The game will support multiple languages, including Spanish (both Latin America and Spain), French, German, and Russian.
That’s the 411, gamers. Vlad Circus: Descend into Madness is all set to drop its spooky vibes this October. Will you survive the madness?
