Columbus, Ohio – March 3rd, 2020 – Independent developer Blackwood Specter released a new trailer for its upcoming survival horror game, Skin Witch, today. One clip reveals a makeshift flamethrower incinerating an enemy, as well as explosives being used to unlock new paths. Also heard in the trailer was a new track from Guild of Lore, who are adept at creating ominous, hopeless soundscapes. Guild of Lore will be producing the game’s soundtrack as well.

Game Summary –

Trapped in an underground mine you were sent to investigate, you soon learn you’re not alone. In the deep dark, skin-changed beasts lurk behind every corner as you struggle to escape. Fill them full of lead, or burn them to a crisp to make sure they stay dead. Skin Witch will be launching on PC this Spring.

“With Skin Witch it was very important to return to the concept of self-defense in survival horror. With weapons, you have the power of choice. Your fate is in your own hands.”

Key Aspects of the Game –

True Survival Horror – Limited resources, unique puzzles, and disturbing environments. Players will have access to multiple weapons, but will need to make tough decisions on when to use precious ammo.

Witch Beasts – Face off againt horrific creatures that were once human. These wretched souls have lost any remaining sense of humanity, now reduced to ravenous beasts. The Skin Witch’s gifts have made the beasts very tough to kill, but if you can only remove their skins…

Non-Linear Gameplay – The mines sprawl in all directions, almost a labyrinth unto themselves. Players can choose to take different routes, and they can also use explosives to demolish tunnels to prevent beasts from catching them.
