Bringing Agony to Steam in 2017

Agony is a first-person survival horror title built with Unreal Engine 4 by the newly formed Madmind Studios, and published by PlayWay.

October 31st was the launch day of Agony’s Kickstarter project with the humble and purposely hellish total of $66,666 CAD. Not only have they reached their goal with 11 days still to go for pledging, they nearly doubled it!

Currently sitting at $130,017 CAD, the team behind Agony are excited by the massively popular Kickstarter campaign and aim to add more torture and pain with further stretch-goals. The first of which was a playable Steam demo for backers, followed by a 3D Viewer, multiple endings and with its current goal of $150,000, if met will guarantee an Agony VR Edition!

In the depths of Hell, players begin their twisted journey as a tormented soul, unaware of who they once were or why they find themselves in the burning wastes. Explore the lake of fire as you possess other wary travelers, as well as the occasional demon or two, gaining knowledge along the way. Discover the mystery in the most terrifying vision of hell ever made. All paths pointing to the mystical Red Goddess, does she have the answers you seek? Take a trip into madness to find out, who knows, maybe you’ll find absolution.

I’ve been watching this game for a while now, currently downloading the demo, which I will talk about down below in the comments after I get the chance to play around with it. Slated to release sometime Q2 2017 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Steam.

Before you go, make sure to check out its ongoing Kickstarter campaign and Agony’s official site for more details.
