Malebolgia developed by Dascumaru AKA Jochen Mistiaen is an atmospheric horror action/adventure game, set in an old demonic palace, situated in the deepest Circle of Hell. The characters and story are inspired by Dante Alighieri’s ‘Inferno’, the ranks and nobility of the ‘Ars Goetia’ and European history at the dawn of the 20th century.
As the old and battle-weary Leopold, you are forced to fight your way through this desolate and cold bastion of Hell, filled with macabre ghouls, fiendish devils and gargantuan monsters. On his desperate quest for freedom, Leopold encounters some familiar faces and slowly comes to realize why he is trapped inside the palace, and if he can truly escape from the beastly Emperor of Hell himself.
Malebolgia’s gameplay is inspired by Dark Souls, mixed together with influences from Alone in the Dark (stark contrast between dark and light) and Killer 7 (cell-shaded visual style). It’s a unique combination that promises to result in a both fun and frightening game.
You can play Malebolgia on Steam now.
