Hell is Others, an online-multiplayer survival game developed by Strelka Games, has been given a release date for October along with a trailer for the game.
The game, which sees players upgrade their character, Adam’s, apartment whilst also eliminating the unknown evils of the world, has been given a release date for October 20, 2022. The game is available on Steam for players to wishlist ahead of this, and there is a dedicated Discord Server for community interaction.
The synopsis for the game reads as follows:
“In Hell is Others, you play as Adam Smithson as he does his best to exist in his tiny apartment, alone, high above Century City. His only companion is a bonsai tree, which he dutifully cares for. But like everything else in the city, his plant requires blood to survive. So Adam is forced to find a regular supply on the dark streets below. Players descend into the city to explore for resources and accomplish missions while trying to survive the night.
With the spoils of your trip down into the city, players can furnish their apartment with items that give them added perks or benefits while playing in multiplayer. Continue to water your bonsai tree and other houseplants with the blood of your enemies to grow custom ammunition.
A hybrid of customization mechanics and extraction-style gameplay, all set in a surreal, noir world, Hell is Others is a David Lynch-vibes game that features pixel graphics and a deeply compelling story. It is a slice of life in a nightmare city.“
The game is a combination of character/world building and a lot of action and gore, as players are forced to navigate the intricate world around them whilst advancing their character.
