In 2015 Mandragora Games brought us a unique survival horror game in the form of Skyhill, and now in a recent press release they would like you to know that, together with publishers Klabater, a sequel to is on it’s way with Skyhill: Black Mist.

Skyhill: Black Mist looks to be quite a departure from it’s predecessor. Skyhill was a entirely 2D experience, where as Skyhill: Black Mist will feature a 3D isometric view. Featuring such elements as stealth, crafting, and exploration, the player must traverse a haunted luxury building complex and, save his daughter, and uncover the secrets behind the mysterious organization who owns the building, all while fighting and/or hiding from horrifying monster ghosts things.

 

 

Skyhill: Black Mist will launch on PC  May 28th and on all major current consoles August 27th. It’ll be available both on the digital store fronts as well as multiple physical releases, bundled with some extra goodies. Be sure to checkout the press release below for more information:


WARSAW, POLAND – MAY 19 – Klabater and Mandragora Games studio are pleased to reveal a story gameplay trailer for the upcoming isometric survival-horror, SKYHILL: Black Mist. The game will debut on PC on May 28th this year. The console version (PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch) will be released on August 27.
SKYHILL: Black Mist is a sequel to the unique Skyhill game from 2015, in which the player’s task was to escape from a hotel overrun by mutants. A simple idea, yet very challenging, wrapped in a 2D comic-book graphics appealed to thousands of players around the world, instantly becoming an indie bestseller.
SKYHILL: Black Mist, the second installment of the series, is a combination of classic horror and gameplay straight from survival games. The game loosely parallels the original concept, but gameplay-wise it’s a revolutionary step forward. This time the developers moved from 2D to 3D, presenting the action in an isometric view. The game mechanics have been significantly enhanced with stealth elements and solutions known from metroidvania-like games, including the ability to re-explore already visited locations to find previously inaccessible items and information. An important element of the game, also improved compared to the original, is the crafting system that allows players to craft items that will help them survive in the most difficult conditions. The story in SKYHILL: Black Mist is inspired by the classic horror cinema, while also introducing mysterious and paranormal elements that we associate with such series as Stranger Things. The player cannot be sure what is true and what is an illusion. Locked in a haunted luxurious building complex owned by the mysterious corporation Skyhill Inc., he tries to understand who or what stands behind the eponymous Black Mist that turns people into mindless monsters.

“We are happy to reveal this new Story Gameplay trailer and Special Editions info to our great Skyhill community and fans.” – said Michal Gembicki, Klabater co-founder. – “Mandragora team is hard at work creating a new experience that will bring anxiety to the players worldwide, providing fans the perfect blend of horror and stealth action.”
