'Gloomwood' Early Access Launch Delayed A Few Weeks

by Rainier on Aug. 2, 2022 @ 6:46 p.m. PDT

In Gloomwood, you are trapped in a dark Victorian city consumed by an ancient curse. Plan your survival and daring escape using nothing but stealth, an arsenal of eccentric weapons, and your wit in this haunting adventure.

Gloomwood is a stealth horror FPS that follows your mysterious abduction to a forgotten, twisted Victorian metropolis in the midst of a horrifying transformation.

Wield your canesword and take to the shadows as you uncover the accursed mystery hidden within the fog.

From the producers of Dusk, Amid Evil and Faith comes a frightening, gothic immersive sim that will have you explore haunted streets, dark tunnels and decadent mansions.

Originally planned for August 16, 2022, publisher New Blood Interactive and developers Dillon Rogers/David Szymanski have revealed that Gloomwood's Steam Early Access launch is being delayed until September 6, 2022.

Due to some unforeseen game development issues that have cropped up over the last few months, as well as several of our developers falling sick to The Gloom (COVID) we've made the decision to push back the Gloomwood Early Access release date. But only by 3 weeks. To September 6th.

It seems that ever since we announced the release date we've been hit with so many issues you would think the immersive sim curse is indeed real, but we will power through it.

This extra time will allow us to make sure all these issues are sorted, add extra polish, and give some space to the major update for one of our other games, Ultrakill, which is now releasing its second act on August 16th.

Key Features:

  • An intricate, hand-crafted city with freeform exploration - from towering rooftops down to hidden passages, the routes you take and paths you make, are your choice.
  • A Detailed stealth and sound system that tracks your light visibility and propagates noise accurately through the world. Tread lightly. Or prepare to get loud.
  • A unique arsenal to meet any situation - a stealthy canesword, six-shot revolver, folding shotgun, hand-placed traps, rope-slinging harpoon rifle and more.
  • In-depth player interactivity, from leaning to eavesdrop, peeking through door cracks, checking the remaining bullets in your firearms and mantling onto ledges. The town is full of objects to pick up, throw, climb and smash and use to your advantage.

Gloomwood is coming to PC (Steam) in 2020.
