Indie Retro Survival Horror ‘Tormented Souls’ Is Out This Month

The Indie retro survival horror game Tormented Souls is out later this month. Better still, you can download a free demo right now.

Tormented Souls is inspired by survival horror games of yesteryear such as Resident Evil and Silent Hill. This influence is something that developers Dual Effect and Abstract Digital Works wear proudly on their sleeves.

The story of Tormented Souls takes place in a small town called Winterlake. Investigating the disappearance of missing twin girls, our protagonist Caroline Walker embarks on an unnerving quest that leads her to an abandoned “mansion-turned-hospital.

Tormented Souls features fixed camera perspectives and puzzle-solving, a true throwback to survival horror games of old. You will have to use your wits if you are going to escape the horrors of Winterlake and uncover the town’s dark secrets.
