Independent developer Darkania Works and publisher GrimTalin are today very happy and proud to announce that their new horror game “Last Days of Lazarus” is coming to PC, Xbox One and the Nintendo Switch in early 2021.
“Last Days of Lazarus” is a vision from George Remus, writer and artist behind the critically acclaimed Gray Dawn (84% positive reviews on Steam).
About Last Days of Lazarus:
Set in a post-soviet Eastern Europe, Last Days of Lazarus tells the story of a troubled man returning to his childhood home after his mother’s death to spend some time with his sister, Lyudmila. But as the country around him starts to fall apart, so does reality itself, resulting in a series of unexplainable events that lead him on a quest to find out more about his family’s disturbing past.
Last Days of Lazarus is a first-person adventure game with a strong narrative and rich visuals, drawing its inspiration from the post soviet era with a Gothic vibe and supernatural elements. As the story unravels, you’ll meet questionable characters whose corrupted version of the truth may be difficult to navigate. With a troubled past yourself, you’ll struggle not only with solving the mysteries laid upon you but also with keeping any sliver of hope for salvation alive.
– Relive the post-soviet Eastern European era in a bone-chilling setup
– Experience an enthralling story about death, suffering, spirituality, and politics, where a disturbing plot merges with unexpected twists
– Follow two additional narrative paths, each with different characters, story and places to explore
– Visit diverse and stunning environments inspired by the Eastern Mysticism and the idyllic Romanian scenery, with dread and gore playing the counterbalancing role
Last Days of Lazarus is currently set to release in early 2021 on Steam. Soon after, the game will be released on Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. If you’d like to receive access to the preview version, hit the reply button and I’ll make sure to organize your copy as soon as it’s ready 🙂
About the creator:
My name is George Remus, and I’m a visual artist with 7 years of experience in the game development industry. My greatest achievement is being the writer and artist behind the critically acclaimed Gray Dawn, a game with a similar style to Last Days of Lazarus.
Recently I founded Darkania Works, which is as indie as it gets, featuring me as artist, writer, programmer, placeholder-voice-artist, and anything else that is needed. As a business partner, I have Catalin Marcu from GrimTalin, which is the publisher and advisor for Last Days of Lazarus. From time to time, I’m assisted by Tudor Leferman, a friend of mine, and an excellent programmer. I always loved to tell people stories, and games are one of the fascinating ways to do it. I don’t shy away from tackling sensitive subjects in my games, such as death, religion, and politics. I will always strive to only produce the kind of games I believe in and would like to play.
