EastAsiaSoft has announced a new retro survival horror game called Dead of Darkness. The game features 2D graphics and they partnered with Retrofiction Games to give the game a full voice over. They have also prepared a new story trailer to mark the final phase of development for PC. Further details and pricing information will be shared at a later date.

Here is more about the game from the press release

In 1985 England, private investigator Miles Windham follows a lead on the mysterious death of his daughter to Velvet Island. But once he arrives on the island, he soon realizes that the residents are behaving strangely. In fact, there is a growing hostility towards the investigator that feels as though it’s becoming stronger by the minute. It doesn’t take long for the situation to escalate, and Miles finds himself in a struggle for his own survival.

Dead of Darkness is a 2D survival horror action-adventure presented in a mix of old-school pixel art and HD character illustrations.
