After the dizzying superhero speeds of Megaton Rainfall, builders Pentadimensional Video games are actually creating one thing even stranger. In Tenebris Pictura, you play as a psychic detective (each the psychic and psychic detective sorts) who’s on the lookout for a lacking particular person within the Victorian period. The investigation quickly takes you to a distant island engulfed in paranormal happenings and, effectively, issues take a wierd flip. You’d higher look it up under.

Not one of the above suits neatly right into a style, except you need to combine a bunch of phrases collectively. Pentadimensional describes itself as an “out-of-body action-adventure”, during which you’re “concerned in a supernatural thriller associated to a shady cult and sightings of aliens” who’ve escaped from these work (or world containers).
That is actually loads to chew on, however my curiosity is piqued. There is a top-down motion with flashy area-of-effect spells. Some physics-defying puzzles that contain leaping into work inside work inside work (eat your creepy photographic coronary heart out, Viewfinder). Some traditional haunted home exploration full with transferring rooms. Chin shaking with previous males. And… racehorses by interdimensional tentacles? Bought.
The Tenebris Pictura Steam web page additionally teases some attention-grabbing paranormal powers: “Disguise your physique from hazard and separate your soul to face the hordes of demons.” Your meaty physique type is not completely ineffective, nonetheless, as you will want to maneuver objects forward of time to “divide and conquer” enemies when ghosts type.
Fifth-dimensional video games appear to have a knack for creating fantasy worlds, however their newest try fell a bit of quick. Our evaluation of Megaton Rainfall mentioned that the workforce had “created one thing past comprehension, one thing totally extraordinary, after which had little concept what to do with it.” However I hope that the minute-by-minute expertise of enjoying Tenebris Pictura is as attention-grabbing as its wacky world.
Tenebris Pictura can be launched on August 31 on Steam and the Epic Video games Retailer.
