AGONY

 

Developer Madmind Games and publisher Maximum Games are excited to announce the launch date for AGONY as May 29th. The hellish survival-horror game is coming to the PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. Preorders are now available for those excitedly waiting for the game. AGONY throws you into the depths of hell as a tormented soul with no memories of your past. The one thing you’ve got going for you is gaining the ability to control others, and that includes possessing demons!

It should be noted that some things had to be cut from the console version to get an M rating from the ESRB. However, the PC version will have a patch to restore the cut content. For a limited time, the game’s Kickstarter backers can change their version of choice if they so choose. Here is the AGONY teaser trailer:

 

According to today’s press release, you will need to solve the riddle of the Red Goddess, the mysterious entity that created the pit of pain and sorrow you now find yourself in. Unfortunately for you, she is the only entity who knows how one might escape this hellhole. However, there is more to the story than just this.

Since it was first announced, AGONY has been featured on numerous “Most anticipated Horror Games 2018” lists. The Kickstarter-funded title not only has a full story mode, but also adds an open challenge system. This mode pits players against randomly generated levels, where they must survive and explore to attain better high scores.

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
