Wired Productions today announced that its upcoming thriller, Martha is Dead, will release in 2021 on next-gen platforms. In order to showcase this new game, the publisher has released an in-game trailer that you can find below.
Developed by LKA, Martha is Dead is in development for Xbox Series X and PC. Building upon LKA’s signature style of deep multi-layered narratives, Martha is Dead combines real-world locations, working in links to historical events, superstition, folklore, and deep psychological distress.
Martha is Dead will be using Unreal Engine 4. Viewed in first-person, players will witness this dark period of history through the eyes of a young woman. This young woman seeks the truth but also has secrets of her own to hide.

Leo Zullo, Managing Director at Wired Productions, said:
“After two years of development, we’re happy to start unveiling more information about Martha is Dead. The range of Wired releases continues to grow, and our aim is to always publish incredible games with undeniable quality. It’s a journey that started with our signing of The Town of Light in 2016, so to continue to support LKA and the studio’s storytelling is something I’m very happy Wired has been able to do.”
Luca Dalco, Founder & Director at LKA, added:
“At LKA, we start with a story. Often it’s uncomfortable, not painless and based in truth. We learned a lot with The Town of Light, and Martha is Dead is taking everything we know, and turning it up to 10. Martha is Dead takes place in a really interesting and distressing period of history, with Italy at this time torn between two major powers fighting for the future. Martha’s brutal murder brings with it a mirrored sense of misery. This game will shock, make players question the truth and like The Town of Light, help continue a conversation around subject matters that still carry much stigma.”
