Supermassive Games and Bandai Namco just released a brand-new trailer today for The Devil in Me, revealing the game’s macabre setting and characters. The Devil in Me is the fourth game in The Dark Pictures Anthology series and the Season One finale.
In a press release from today, the publisher provided an overview of the game’s story:
A group of documentary filmmakers receives a mysterious call inviting them to a modern-day replica of serial killer H.H. Holmes’ ‘Murder Castle’. It’s an opportunity that’s too good to pass up and could be just the thing they’re looking for to win some much-needed public interest
The hotel is the perfect setting for their new episode, but things aren’t quite as they seem. The crew discovers they’re being watched and even manipulated, and suddenly there’s much more at stake than just their ratings!
The Lonnit Entertainment TV crew receive a pressing and mysterious phone call from a man called Granthem Du’Met, with a promise of a tour around a faithful recreation of the H. H. Holmes murder castle, an idea that Lonnit Entertainment founder Charlie Lonnit believes might just save his show.
Oscar nominee Jessie Buckley stars as a member of this ill-fated crew that visits this strange hotel location, a place that quickly turns into a deadly trap made by their disturbed host Granthem Du’Met. Observed, isolated, and manipulated like rats in a maze, it soon becomes clear that the crew’s check-out is compromised, and they will have to make some impossible choices that they might live to regret or just not live at all!
- Welcome to the Murder Hotel!
Nothing is as it seems here, and the amenities are to die for! Explore every nook of the World’s Fair hotel using the all-new season finale features including character inventory, tool-based puzzles, and expanded movement actions such as run, jump, and climb.
- Your death is his design
Escape the torturous creations of an evil monster who is hellbent on becoming America’s deadliest serial killer. Survive elaborate ‘killing rooms’ where your own death is by the killer’s design.
