Publisher Wired Productions and developers LKA and Caracal Games have pushed the release of their upcoming title Martha is Dead to February 24, 2022, per PlayStation Blog. It should come as no surprise, given that the game had been dragging that nebulous 2021 release frame for some time.
The announcement accompanies the post by Tommaso Bonanni, technical director at Caracal Games, who are working with Caracal Games on Martha is Dead, in using the power of the PS5 to immerse players in the game. “The immersive features of the DualSense controller provided potent new ways to pull players into this psychological experience,” explains Bonanni.
“For example, in moments of increased tension and fear, players feel the heightened heartbeat of the protagonist. Players can also feel the difference of the character’s footfalls across different terrain. Our aim was to help players feel Giulia’s movement and emotions as she explores and searches for clues.”
Martha is Dead is currently in development for the PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series, Xbox One, and PC via Steam.
