Little Hope Release Date
Little Hope will be released on June 15, 2020, and it has been officially confirmed.
While the short teaser has created great excitement among the horror lovers, the teaser has revealed some information on what the game may be like with its very familiar American imagery of witches and inquisitors.
The game by Supermassive got its start with the sleeper horror “Until Dawn,” which put known actors in cinematic horror situations. After its prequel “Man of Medan,” Supermassive has tweaked the small errors in the game in “Little Hope” and has tuned up the experience. With Little Hope, Supermassive wants to capture that shifting, uncertain narrative but ground it in more solid game design.
The Dark Picture Anthology is a set of horror games. Currently, there are eight planned to release two every year. These little experiences much compliment the tense moments and atmosphere of these survival horror games.
These games are linked by the mysterious Curator, who is telling the audience these stories and occasionally guiding them along the way. While “Man of Medan” took place in modern-day on a horrifying and haunted boat, “Little Hope,” the second title travels through multiple periods with hideous monsters and bringing back then the legacy of witch burning.
“With Man of Medan, we showed that we’re not afraid to have the format of ‘man is the monster’, but we don’t want any one theme to dominate, so it’ll be quite a mix of supernatural monster movies, with devils and demons.”
Says director Pete Samuels in an interview. It hails from a period where people did horrible things other people, and so, Supermassive has been sure to keep in mind what it draws from this history.
