Purgatory Horror Adventure Game Trailer

by Thelget

Joel Mayer Productions announced the release of the first teaser trailer for “Purgatory – A Horror Adventure Game,” giving fans of the genre a first glimpse at the Game Boy-styled horror experience about a young woman named Alex who has to fight demons ahead as well as those from her past.

About Purgatory

One peaceful night in the Swiss Alps, four students of a prestigious international school are on their way home from a wild night out partying. Among them is Alex, a recent arrival, as well as her new boyfriend Dennis.

Then it happens: a moment of inattention, a car that goes off the road, four lives that will change forever.

Alex awakens from unconsciousness in the middle of the night with nothing but a deep forest ahead of her. Her friends: gone.

The farther Alex wanders into the woods the more she realizes that something is terribly wrong. After finding an old, seemingly abandoned mansion and discovering the whereabouts of her friends, it becomes clear that this night will decide each of their fates. But the former inhabitants of the house are not the only ones with an unsettling past, and Alex must face not only the demons ahead but also the ones she left behind.

Passion Project

Purgatory has been Joel Mayer’s passion project for some time now. It attempts to infuse the horror game genre with a unique look based on Italian horror movies of the 70s and a fresh take on teenage horror movie tropes.

‘I’m very excited to finally get to a point where the project feels “real”. This trailer and the published Steam Store page mark a milestone in the development of my first commercial title.”
