A Horror 6 Years in the Making
At Halloween last year began a new episodic horror experience, as Song of Horror released on PC with its first episode. Now, about 7 months later, the indie survival horror game will be releasing its 5th and final episode on May 28th.
Called The Horror and The Song, the studio says that it will feature:
- The former patients of Jeremy Hartwood Psychiatric Hospital now haunt its eerie hallways, enthralled by The Presence's pull. Dive into the mind of the only person that listened to the song and survived to live another day through the unsettling memories of her doctor!
- Lidia properly joins the adventure! She is Daniel’s guardian angel and responsible for helping him overcome his alcoholism. Her selfless drive pushes her to help Daniel once again, this time with a different kind of problem.
- Witness the conclusion of your favorite characters and greet unexpected guests from the past. Their survival depends on your final actions in the story!
- A bone-chilling epilogue that changes everything. Song of Horror's last verse holds the final key to the story. How and why are The Presence and The Song connected? Will The Presence prevail over your characters.
Protocol Games founder Carlos Grupeli shared some thoughts about bringing the episodic series to a close,
“We set out to both honour the big survival-horror games of old, and to bring something new to the genre at the same time. It wasn’t easy but, in many ways, the fifth and final episode is the natural culmination of all that ambition, and the chapter where most is at stake. It’ll be sad to bring Song of Horror to a close after all this time, but we can’t wait to see what the fans make of it.”
Song of Horror is available to purchase on Steam for $7.99 an episode, or you can buy the Season Pass for $21.99, which will include The Horror and The Song when it releases on May 28. Song of Horror will release on consoles later this year with the whole season at an unannounced date.
