Try to survive on the mysterious island in a lovecraftian 2D roguelite with branching narrative and elements of resource management.

When a dark cult abducts his sibling, there’s nothing else Killian can do but to comply with their demands. In order to save his sister he travels to the mysterious island of Esha - a place forgotten by even gods themselves, where the unspeakable ritual is about to take place.

Join Killian and Eileen in a deadly journey through Esha and dive into dark secrets of its inhabitants; try to navigate your way through the unknown territory with only a handful of hints that might lead you to a dangerous discovery about things that should have probably been consigned to oblivion...

Because there’s something dark and unspeakable, hidden in Esha’s stormy waves.

Key Features:

  • EVER-CHANGING ISLAND: Esha will always be a bit different; procedurally-generated map, randomized events and branching narrative will allow you to experience something new in each run.
  • SURVIVAL THROUGH RESOURCE MANAGEMENT: Explore different locations, gather things that might help you survive and be mindful of your own limits. Be careful, though, because every time you walk into an abandoned house, it might not be as abandoned as it would seem…
  • WIDE VARIETY OF MONSTERS: Sometimes the evil will take particular forms, straight from your worst nightmares… Encounter 20 unique monsters that will remind you of creatures from lovecraftian horrors and try to defend yourself from their attacks.
  • CUSTOMIZABLE CHARACTERS: You may not be able to fight, but that doesn’t mean you’re defenceless. Find and change your outfits, craft and equip talismans, learn about enemies’ vulnerabilities - all in order to survive.
  • MULTIPLE ENDINGS: Will you find the way out, or will you succumb to the darkness of Esha? The choices you make throughout the game will lead you to one of the five main endings.
  • UNIQUE SENSORY EXPERIENCE: Feel the despair of the main characters and the desolation of Esha through the combination of atmospheric graphics, music and narrative, inspired by the works of Lovecraft and other works of the cosmic horror genre.

Theatre Of Sorrows is coming to PC (Steam) and Nintendo Switch.
