Of all the landscapes you expect to see in horror projects, Hell has to take the cake. The crazy thing is: we rarely get to see it. Sure, demons find their way to Earth’s surface all the time in movies and games, but it’s rare to actually find yourself in the deepest depths of Hell. That being said, Polish developer Madmind Studio has had enough. They’re taking us straight to hell, and it looks glorious.

The team is comprised of members that have worked on major AAA titles such as Witcher III and The Division, so these guys know what they’re doing; that much should be apparent by the pure beauty of the visuals below. We also have a look at some early “prototype” gameplay footage, and it’s looking pretty good! As luck would have it, your friends at Modern Horrors will be in attendance at this year’s E3 gaming convention, so we’ll do our best to bring you additional news as it comes our way. Until then, check out the debut teaser trailer, plot synopsis, and images below.

A 2017 release is expected.

Agony is a first-person survival horror game currently in development. Players will begin their journey as tormented soul within the depths of Hell without any memories about their past. The special ability to control people on their path, and even possess simple-minded demons, gives players the necessary measures to survive in the extreme conditions they are in.

By exploring hostile environment and interacting with the other weary souls of the hellscape, the hero will soon understand that there is only one way to escape from Hell, and it will require a meeting of the mystical Red Goddess.
