Blackpowder Games announced today that Betrayer will be launched on March 24th and will be priced at $18.99. The game has been available on Steam via its Early Access program, and features some really stylish black & white visuals.
Craig Hubbard, the game’s designer and writer, said:
“Since shipping FEAR almost 10 years ago, we’ve been wanting to create a player-driven game that emphasizes exploration and discovery with minimal hand-holding. We’re ecstatic to finally get the chance.”
Betrayer is an eerie first person action/adventure title in which players traverse a mysteriously abandoned New World colony in 1604, trying to piece together what happened to its inhabitants and survive the supernatural threats they encounter along the way.
“Ultimately, what we’re proudest of is that Betrayer is distinctive. When you’re setting out to create a first person action game with seven people, the biggest fear is that you’ll make something redundant: a cheap version of a bigger, better title. But I feel confident saying you haven’t played anything quite like this.”
