Walnut Creek, Calif. – May 9, 2018 – Developer Madmind Studios and publisher Maximum Games revealed more narrative details for the highly anticipated horror game Agony, releasing May 29th on PlayStation®4, Xbox One and PC.
Today’s trailer showcases tormented souls awakening in a nightmare world and sets the tone for the horrific, immersive world of Agony where we get our first glimpses of what our protagonist’s journey entails: an existence ruled by the mysterious Red Goddess, who’s hold over all around her is inescapable. If you’re to escape her reign, you’ll need to learn how to defeat some of the most grotesque and dangerous creatures that hell has ever known.
