1C Company Announces Two Deep and Dark New Titles: Devil’s Hunt and Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones
Global Publisher Continues Adding Exciting New Games for PC Players with a Demonic Third-Person Action Title and a Lovecraft-themed Horror RPG; Both to be Exhibited at Gamescom
PRAGUE, July 26, 2018 – 1C Company, a global PC and console games publisher, today announced it will publish two new PC titles, the heaven and hell themed, third-person action game, Devil’s Hunt, which will also come out on PlayStation®4 and Xbox One, and the roleplaying game of horror, loss, and madness set in the strange worlds of H.P. Lovecraft, Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones. The multi-layered gameplay and sinister themes of both games will be featured at 1C’s booth at Gamescom for hands-on play for the first time. Gamers can get a sneak peek at Devil’s Hunt here and at Stygian here.
“Devil’s Hunt and Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones will deliver deep, challenging gameplay and dark, mature themes for PC action and RPG players,” said Nikolay Baryshnikov, VP of 1C Company. “Gamers and media will be able to put these two exciting games through their paces at Gamescom, so please come and see us at the show to experience heavenly gameplay and hellish subject matter!”
In Devil’s Hunt, players will go to hell and back in the battle between Demons and Angels. In this upcoming third-person perspective (TPP) action game developed for PC and console by Layopi Games, players will become Desmond, a man with demonic powers who can decide the fate of our world by joining either side of the conflict. Based on the original hit Polish fantasy novel, “Equilibrium,” Devil’s Hunt brings to life the eternal fight between light and darkness as all-out war between Demons and Angels appears imminent with the mortal world as the battleground. Desmond can fight using his fists and claws, making use of the skills his demonic and human sides offer—but ultimately he must choose which side he will follow. The game is planned for release in 2019.
Devil’s Hunt Features
- Captivating Storyline: Based on the original novel by Polish author Paweł Leśniak
- Change Forms: Exercise useful human and demon skills alike to overcome obstacles
- Fight Like a Demon: Third person melee combat with large variety of attacks, combos, and enemies
- Deep Narrative: Expressed through gameplay and high-quality cutscenes
- Explore the Mortal World: Rich, context sensitive environment interactions
Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones is a roleplaying game of horror, loss, and madness set in the strange worlds of HP Lovecraft. The upcoming original title developed by Cultic Games offers a mix of rich RPG world building and turn-based tactical combat for PC, Mac, and Linux, represented in an illustrative 2D visual style that manages to be both quaint and terrifying. Players will journey from a doomed Arkham into the depths of the Abyss, creating their own character based on one of eight Archetypes and carve a path through a broken and mysterious world. The desperate battle against the forces beyond our comprehension will haunt players until the end. The game’s unique Belief System mechanic determines how character sanity is affected by the warped reality and how sanity can be regenerated. It also affects the availability of dialog options, as well as their consequences, in a given situation. Physical combat will be challenging, spellcasting will have dire consequences, and sanity will be strained to the breaking point by unknown abominations. Sometimes the best solution will be to flee what lurks beyond the threshold. The game is planned for release in 2019 and an early demo is now available on Steam.
Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones Features
- RPG and Turn-based Tactical Combat: A tantalizing mix of gameplay styles keeping strategy at the forefront
- Experience the Horrors of the Old Ones: Enter H.P. Lovecraft’s sinister world and abandon all hope
- Combat and Spellcasting: Both will take their toll on your health and sanity. Remember: dark magic always comes with a price
- Try to Maintain Sanity: See the unseeable as your character struggles to hold on to reality—sometimes a little insanity can be beneficial in a world gone mad
- Hand-drawn 2D Graphics: Journey into an illustrated world reflecting cosmic horror and dread
