Death Mark Releases on Halloween with Gorgeous Limited Edition
Aksys Games’ survival horror adventure game Death Mark is heading to PlayStation 4, the PlayStation Vita, and the Nintendo Switch on the creepiest day of the year: October 31st.
Come this Halloween, Death Mark will tell its tale of a supernatural curse spreading through Tokyo. Those who are to die by it bear a mysterious mark on their bodies. The game looks to be quite the grim and gruesome adventure, featuring some of the best visual design I’ve recently seen in games like it.
In Death Mark, A strange rumor is spreading in Tokyo’s H City: those who bear the Mark will die. Unexpectedly appearing on the body, like a chewed up birthmark, the Mark is said to result in an unknown death. Now, having lost your memory, you stand before a mysterious house said to protect those who possess the Mark. As the doors swing open, the countdown to death has already begun.
Features of Death Mark include:
- Search and Survive! – To avoid an almost certain gruesome death at the “hands” of angry spirits, you’ll need to search your surroundings for clues to increase your odds of survival.
- Ghost Busting – Sometimes the sword is more powerful than the pen. And when words fail it’s time to stand your ground. Remember the price of not holding your own is an untimely death.
- Riddle Me This – It’s not enough to defeat the spirit that cursed you, you need to do it in the right way. If you don’t you might survive, but end up wishing you hadn’t. Be sure to parse all the clues and information you discover correctly to make your life continue to be worth living.
Those who want to pick up Death Mark can do so digitally and at retail. A Limited Edition with gorgeous box art will release for each platform as well, starting at $59.99 for the Vita version and $69.99 for PS4 and Switch. Each includes a 96-page full-color hardcover artbook, a soundtrack CD, a temporary tattoo of the “Mark”, and a slipcase. The standard edition is $39.99.
