Agony

A survival horror game developed by the independent Madmind Studio. The player assumes the role of an unfortunate man who went to hell for unknown reasons. The task that we have to accomplish is not only to find a way out of the abyss but also to uncover the identity of the amnesiac protagonist. The gameplay of Agony is based on exploration of underground depths and solving logic puzzles. Since the hero does not have any combat abilities, we have to avoid confrontation with hellish beasts. The protagonist can take over minds of encountered souls and lesser demons, which comes in handy. The production is powered by Unreal Engine 4 which translates into high-quality graphics. The well-designed environment and horrifying demonic creatures made with attention to detail are especially noteworthy.
