In an effort to reach its Kickstarter funding goal, the upcoming atmospheric horror Dreadful Bond has received a playable demo.
The game is being directed by Italian film director Dario Argento. Argento has been given the title the “Master of the Thrill” and “Master of Horror” due to his work in the movie industry in the 1970s and 1980s.
Dreadful Bond is this Master of Horror’s first foray into the video game medium and will combine many of the themes and motifs he has used across his movies.
The developer notes that the demo is not a full representation of the final product, but merely just a taste of the atmosphere players will be diving into.
In the full game, players will explore the Wharton Manor home and discover many horrible deeds revolving around mysticism, alchemy, love, and death in a story that is meant for those who truly love horror and dark atmospheres.
Argento and Clod Studio created a short film in Unreal Engine 4 based on Dreadful Bond, which is embedded down below.
