    PC Gamer article on Agony which is coming in 2017 using the UE4 engine.
    Agony gameplay trailer showcases a first-person crawl through the bowels of Hell | PC Gamer

    Agony is a first-person horror game being developed by Polish studio Madmind. It was announced in May, and will see players take a tour of the depths of hell, as experienced by a tormented soul with no memory of the crimes that led to him landing in the burny basement. But you can look for clues in the debut gameplay trailer which was released today: It's eight unpleasant minutes spent in a chittering, nightmarish underworld, utterly without context or plot. Enjoy!

    Wife might slap me in back of head if she sees I'm playing with demon titties.

    I'd put that first screenshot in a spoiler with a NSFW warning.

    Good thing I have a screen protector at work...

    Work environment aside, this looks right up my alley :love:. Kind of looks like they took the idea for Gates to Aesgaard and fleshed it out in a full original game.

    Sounds intriguing. After being incredibly surprised at how much I liked Doom, I'll have to keep this one on the "Steam special" wishlist.

    Would help if they had a demo though.

    Love the concept. Hopefully it isn't like most modern games where they start strong and never do anything new after the first area. I miss the days where you truly missed out on great things if you didn't play all the way to the end. In the last 4-5 years it feels like you've seen all most games have by the 30% mark.

    Alpha demo was released to Kickstarters late last year. It looks like it's on track for a mid-year release. I haven't watched the video, myself, as I'm trying to avoid spoilers, but here it is for those of you interested. NSFW, obviously, so spoiler tag for protection.

    This seems like a game that I would watch a Let's Play of because the art style and overall world look so amazing...but it seems to be a fairly standard "sneak around and hide" horror game, which I have basically zero interest in playing.

    EDIT: Also, for a game set entirely in Hell, the fire effects seem pretty awful. :p

    Reminds of the atmosphere of Dante's Inferno on PS3/PSP, which I loved a ton. I'm going to have to buy it again at someone come to think of it...

    Madmind has secured a publisher for physical releases across all platforms. Delays game to add 7 possible endings to the game and additional playable characters (both were stretch goals in the original Kickstarter, if I'm not mistaken). New release window is end of 2017. Clarifies in Kickstarter update that publisher has no say in content of the game. There is currently a poll to choose the boxart.

    Hype!

    nice graphics but it just looks to be super boring to actually play.

    Ya, that was in a kickstarter update. Basically they can't release the game as MA so they had to alter camera angles. Should be out soonish, hope it is good.

    sounds like a nice NC-17 hardcore, violent game with lots of rape and nudity...hopefully gameplay is decent and not all about shock value

    its coming out for consoles, and there are fairly strict limitations as to what they can show on consoles. Thus the alterations. Steam.... also dislikes anything pornish. Some japanese games have different images for this market (and can be changed via patch)

    I've watched a lot of Agony videos and so far have seen no gameplay, just a horror themed narrative.

    I will say, I hope the new Doom looks like this.

    KS backers have posted videos of gameplay in the demo that was released toward the end of last year. Check them out.
    Check out the Front Page News section. Someone at Bethesda said preparing for E3 is "Hell on Earth." That started up the rumor mill.
