If you enjoyed Interactive Stone’s Gray Dawn, then George Remus, the writer and artist behind that title, has something for you. Remus, together with Darkania Works and publisher GrimTalin, are working on Last Days of Lazarus, a Gothic first-person adventure game set in the post-Soviet Eastern Europe. The game will be coming to Steam, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch in early 2021.
Last Days of Lazarus tells the story of a troubled man returning to his childhood home after his mother’s death to spend some time with his sister, Lyudmila. But as the country around him starts to fall apart, so does reality itself, resulting in a series of unexplained events that lead him on a quest to find out more about his family’s disturbing past.
Last Days of Lazarus will feature multiple narrative paths, each with different characters, story and places, as well as “diverse and stunning environments” (given that Remus is an artist by trade) inspired by the Eastern mysticism and the idyllic Romanian scenery, with “dread and gore playing the counterbalancing role.”
