The incredibly difficult jump-scare puzzler also gets playable demo.
Designed to be the most brutal, unforgiving game ever made with plenty of jump scares and unlimited deaths thrown in for good measure, Kaet Must Die! is a first-person, horror puzzle game that finds players taking on the role of Kaetheran, a powerful psionicist who has woken up alone in a dark sewer. Stripped of her powers, and surrounded by an army of unholy creatures who have one mission – to kill her – players must help Kaetheran survive through exploration and deciphering clues to solve puzzles, gain new abilities, and unravel the mystery as to why literally everyone and everything wants her to die.
“Be prepared to die. A lot,” says Strength in Numbers CEO, Scott Rescheke. “Kaet Must Die! was designed to punish players with its over-the-top difficulty and to appeal to those hungry for a true challenge. We’re looking forward to seeing lots of games journalists die, and die again when we show off the game at this year’s GDC.”
Kaet Must Die! unique features include:
– Brutal Difficulty: Expect to die. A lot. Kaet Must Die! finds players exploring hostile environments filled with enemies around every corner who can kill you with a single touch.
– True Horror: Turn up the volume and turn down the lights. Kaet Must Die! will make players jump from their seats as they follow cryptic clues and unravel the mystery as to why everyone wants to kill you.
– Darkness and Insanity: Time spent in the safety of the shadows will cause your insanity meter to rise, drawing the attention of the dreaded blood witch Annalinnia.
– Challenging Puzzles: Players must pay close attention to their environment, following cryptic clues to solve the game’s many puzzles to proceed.
Kaet Must Die! launches onto Steam on the 6th of April this year. There’s a demo that’s already playable on Steam if you want to get a taste of the relentless horror game now.
