Headup Games and the indie studio Silent Dreams are making the continuation of their successful collaboration public today. Following the success of the press- and community-praised Grotesque Tactics franchise with Grotesque Tactics: Premium Edition and Grotesque Tactics 2: Dungeons & Donuts, Headup Games and Silent Dreams will release a spin-off of the popular irony-peppered fun-RPG in September of 2012. Holy Avatar vs. Maidens of the Dead will be released in September of 2012 exclusively for PC.
To get a bit of relaxation after the last big battle of Grotesque Tactics 2: Dungeons & Donuts Holy Avatar decides to take a trip off-the-cuff with his Guild of Maidens on a Caribbean island, his recently purchased “Holy Island”.
After a rather ungently arrival on the beach they made a gruesome discovery: numerous dead maidens, horribly mutilated, are scattered all over the path to the inside of the island. The Guild of Maidens is afraid that something horrible happened in the maidens camp on the island. Holy Avatar – secretly happy about this twist – is going to investigate what exactly happened with a part of his group, looking for new adventures, not knowing what kind of scale this disaster has already taken and what hazards are waiting for him and his companions inside the dense woods and caves…
Next to new optics that were redone from the scratch with fresh Cel-Shading graphics and an overly colorful and more friendly look, Silent Dreams especially reacts to the community’s suggestions and demands.
As part of this, Holy Avatar vs. Maidens of the Dead is introducing a fixed camera which will provide you with a clear overview over the events of the game. Zooming in and out naturally will still be possible, as well as the feature of moving the camera over the whole map. From the technical point of view the game in general was matched to the endemic Caribbean flair. In this measure the HUD now was provided with a tropical design, as well as the character portraits which got a general overhaul.
And the steel drum-marked Caribbean soundtrack will carry over the comforting Southern Sea feeling to the player.
Publisher Headup Games who holds the worldwide rights to releasing and distribution and developer studio Silent Dreams will release Holy Avatar vs. Maidens of the Dead in September of 2012. The exact release date will be announced soon.
