Agony Arrives on Steam in May

By Rebecca Smith, 9 months ago
Developer Madmind Studios has teamed up with publisher Maximum Games to bring their horror-survival title Agony to Steam at the end of next month. The announcement comes with a brand new trailer and a set of screenshots that showcase the cursed version of Hell that players will encounter.

As a tormented soul with absolutely no recollection of your past, you're thrown into a version of Hell that really lives up to its name. With no desire to remain in the hostile environment where you're surrounded by many other cursed and weary souls, you soon find out that the only way to escape is to find the Red Goddess. She's the only one with the knowledge of how to get out of here, but she's also the architect behind the sorrow and pain that you'll suffer. Along the way, you'll be able to control the people you meet, even being able to possess some of the demons. Take a look at the trailer below to see what kind of hell you'll find:

As well as the game's campaign, there will be an "open challenge system". Here, levels are randomly generated and task players with getting the highest score possible as they explore and attempt to survive. If you couldn't view the video above, you can see the game in action in the screenshots below. Bear in mind that some of the later screenshots in the collection are not safe for work.

The title will arrive on May 29th to mess with your head.
