First Trailer Released for Deal With The Devil Delves Into The Game’s Backstory

Published

Round Table Games Studio has released the first trailer for their upcoming first-person horror title Deal with the Devil. The trailer is the first of five planned ‘transmissions’ that will help tell the back story for the game. If you can decipher their meaning.

“We’re delighted to share the first of a series of trailers which reveal some of the backstory of the main character Amelia,” says Studio Head Rich Barham, formerly of Blizzard.

“As you might imagine, we love a good dark tale, particularly when it is linked to a puzzle or mystery, With that in mind, we’ve included pieces of a puzzle to solve across the five trailers which lead to some more of the story of Amelia’s world.”

The trailer, which you can check out below, shows plenty of eerie footage to decipher, complete with creepy sound effects and minimal music. The trailer also provides a link to a password protected website entitled Sanctus Corporation.

Deal with the Devil is set just after World War I and follows a woman named Amelia Woods. Amelia is described as someone who “walks the tightrope between Champion and Anti-Hero.”

Players will take on the role of Amelia, making decisions that will lead her to become a hero or allow her to descend into an anti-hero. The game’s dark narrative will include the exploration of an Art-Deco 1920s world filled with mysterious horrors.

Troy Baker has spoken about his return to the role of Joel in Naughty Dog’s upcoming title The Last of Us Part II.

During an exclusive interview with OnlySP at Supanova Comic Con & Gaming, Baker was asked how he felt to return to the role alongside Ashley Johnson, who plays Ellie in the sequel to the acclaimed 2013 title.

“The first day we were on set was when we shot [the PSX reveal] trailer,” Baker revealed. “We go through rehearsals and stuff, and we walk through it, and things get real serious all of a sudden, when we heard both of our voices. When you put everything together, that’s when Ashley goes away and Troy goes away, and you’re left with Ellie and Joel.”

Baker noted that the first time creative director Neil Druckmann spoke to him about the potential of a sequel was during the British Academy Video Game Awards in March 2014.

Check out a clip from our exclusive interview with Troy Baker and Nolan North—including the revelation of North’s return as David and the significant musical numbers featured in the game—above, and stay tuned for the full interview.

Druckmann recently revealed that Baker and Johnson had completed their main work on the game, describing it as “the most ambitious cinematic shoot we’ve ever done.” Before that, he stated that the final scene of The Last of Us Part II has been shot, with Laura Bailey recently completing her performance capture for the title. Druckmann also revealed that the rapper Logic and actor Travis Willingham will also be appearing in the game.

Earlier this month, a screen of the game’s weapon upgrade system was leaked in a promotional video, with some noting that weapon variation may be present in the game’s revision of combat.
