SUGAR RUSH STUDIO LAUNCHES LOVECRAFTIAN INTERACTIVE HORROR STORY AT EVE’S WAKE, JUST IN TIME FOR HALLOWEEN
EINDHOVEN, NETHERLANDS: OCTOBER 26, 2021 –
Independent game developer Sugar Rush Studios today announced the launch of its first game, At Eve’s Wake, an interactive horror story. Written in the style of H.P. Lovecraft, this haunting tale has players discovering the family they never knew and uncovering their sinister practices. At Eve’s Wake is available starting at Noon ET today for PC on Steam and the Epic Game Store for $24.99 USD, with additional platforms to follow.
In the role of an estranged relative, players are thrust into the story with the arrival of a letter requesting their presence at their long-lost grandmother’s funeral. In attendance is the long-lost extended family; a cast of shadowy characters with secrets and ulterior motives to be uncovered. At Eve’s Wake unfolds through a series of player choices and beautifully detailed illustrations. Will you be the family’s redemption or join and lead them down an even darker path?.
While it’s often said that choices have consequences, this is most certainly the case with At Eve’s Wake. First, players select between personality attributes such as smart, strong, or charismatic – each with its own play style, dialog options, and influence over actions in the story. Taking care with your choices throughout the game is critical, as your actions won’t be forgotten, and knowledge gained cannot be unlearned, irrevocably changing the game’s direction. Some choices may even wreak havoc on your fragile state, spiraling you to the brink of sanity.
Key Features :
- H.P. Lovecraft-inspired narrative with numerous twists and turns.
- Four distinctly different endings.
- Choices have far-reaching consequences, altering the story’s path and outcome.
- Personality trait-based play styles that affect actions and dialog options.
- Knowledge gained carries over to subsequent play-throughs.
- Save-scumming and/or restarting the game opens up additional options and paths.
“At Eve’s Wake was first inspired by a nightmare I had and a passion for Lovecraftian horror,” said Bob Vlemmix, CEO and founder of Sugar Rush Studios. “The resulting game is the hard work of an amazingly talented team that was able to turn my nightmare into a dream come true, and we can’t wait to share it with everyone.”
At Eve’s Wake is available for download today on Steam and the Epic Game Storefor $24.99 USD. A free demo is available here. For additional information, please visit sugarrushstudios.com.
