Press release:
30 JUN 2021.
The US-based indie games publisher Armor Games Studios  and Portugal-based indie games developer Vertical Reach, today announced with great delight and excitement that their psychological thriller/adventure game “The Tartarus Key” is coming to PC via Steam in 2022.

Inspired by beloved thrillers such as Alone In The Dark, and taking cues from escape-the-room puzzle games, The Tartarus Key drops players into the unfortunate shoes of Alex Young, a young woman who awakens to find herself locked inside a sprawling manor, seemingly under constant observation by a network of cameras.

However, it soon becomes clear that whoever is watching Alex from behind the lens is the least of her concerns in this house of tricks and shadows, and furthermore, she’s not the only one being held captive.. At the end of a portable radio is an unfamiliar voice, and the farther Alex goes, the stranger things become. Who – or what – lies at the heart of this mansion?

Players will make their way through the chilling manor, solving puzzles along the way. Alex’s fellow captives are also waiting to be found, and their survival will depend on choices made throughout the game.

With three unique endings to discover, The Tartarus Key encourages players to explore every corner of this bizarre place and discover the mysteries within as they try to find a way out.

“We’re hard at work making The Tartarus Key, and we hope you’ll enjoy its blend of authentic vibes and puzzles!” said Leonor Parra and Kevin Colegate of development team Vertical Reach.

The Tartarus Key will launch on PC via Steam in 2022.

About The Tartarus Key
Delve deep into the darkness of a mysterious mansion and puzzle out a way to escape the horror that lies within. As Alex Young, you awaken to find yourself trapped in a dark room – and your only guide: a cynical voice on the other end of a portable radio. As you move from room to room, solving puzzles and rescuing others like yourself, team up with everyone from a self-important conspiracy theorist to a detective with secrets of her own. It quickly becomes apparent that there is something truly rotten lurking at the heart of this place. But who – or what – lurks in the shadows of this mansion, monitoring your every move?

Inspired by the look and feel of classic horror games, The Tartarus Key serves up a mystery filled with twists and turns, and more than a few deadly surprises. Rely on brains over brawn to help Alex survive, but beware – not everyone might make it out alive.

Features:
Escape a deadly mansion filled with dangerous traps, and rescue Alex’s fellow captives… or fail, and leave them to a grisly fate
Uncover three different endings, and dig to the heart of the mansion and the strange secrets it and your captors hold
Solve puzzles and challenges reminiscent of escape-the-room games in a variety of unsettling and bizarre scenarios
A tense, atmospheric adventure that relies on puzzles and plot instead of combat or chase sequences
