Publisher Wired Productions and The Town of Light developer LKA today announced Martha is Dead, a dark psychological thriller slated to release next year.
Set in Tuscany during the Second World War, the game’s story blends eerie folklore and real-life historical events.

“We are delighted to be once again working with the incredibly talented team at LKA as their ability to bring stories to life is once again demonstrated with this unique project,” said Leo Zullo, Managing Director, Wired Productions, “Martha is Dead is a beautiful and haunting adventure that will take players through an unforgettable story, and we’re confident it will leave a mark with gamers as it has done with us…”
Powered by Unreal Engine 4, the game aims to blur the line between gaming and reality with advanced texturing techniques and full support for real-time ray tracing to bring the world of Martha is Dead to life.
