Something floppy this way comes… On April 17th, prepare for horror so blood-curdling it can only be caused by an old, cursed floppy disk. From Assemble Entertainment and developer Tainted Pact, Suffer the Night brings a horrifying haunting to Steam with all of the campy 80s slasher goodness you could ask for, plus the added bonus of classic dungeon crawler gameplay. Do you have what it takes to survive, or will you indeed…suffer the night?

To coincide with today’s launch date announcement, the developer has revealed a new set of dread-inducing screenshots, as well as all-new artwork for the game.

In Suffer the Night, players take on the role of Stacey Liden, a painter who specializes in horror illustrations in her isolated woods-bound cabin. After receiving an envelope containing a mysterious floppy disk, Stacy boots it up on her old Eldrixon personal computer and begins playing. As she progresses through the terror of the text-based adventure, she’s visited by a mysterious and threatening stranger, urging her to finish the game. The strange and horrifying things within the game begin leaking into the real world…will Stacey survive, or will she succumb to the terrors around her? Only one thing is for certain: don’t let him get in.

Key Features of Suffer the Night

  • Horror Beyond Comprehension: A highlight of this title is the text-based dungeon crawler “game within a game” filled with grisly scenarios and vivid descriptions of the atrocities wherein. Players will need to flex their old-school gaming muscles to progress within the stories, both inside the Eldrixon and out.
  • Don’t Let Him In: While playing through the floppy disk game, the mysterious figure who delivered it isn’t shy about making his presence known. Be sure to address any…interruptions…he causes, or suffer the consequences.
  • A Chilling Combination: Suffer the Night expertly weaves two genres of horror games into one, balancing the chilling anxiety of the text-based adventure with the dread of first-person survival horror
