Horns Level Up Games Conjures Up the Mystical ‘Spirits of Baciu: The Deception’ for Steam in 2024
I hope you’ve got your detective hats at the ready, because we’re about to dive into the eerily beautiful world of “Spirits of Baciu: The Deception” – a hand-drawn 2D puzzle adventure brought to you by the passionate duo at Horns Level Up Games.
This indie developer team, hailing all the way from Genoa, Italy, is crafting a unique gaming experience that’s set to hit Steam in 2024. And guess what? They’ve just announced a Kickstarter campaign to fund this supernatural caper. After tantalising us with a free prologue on Steam, the studio is now gearing up to bring us the full, puzzle-packed game. It’s all shaping up to be a right intriguing project, so let’s delve in, shall we?
“Spirits of Baciu: The Deception” whisks you away to the Hoia Baciu Forest, a paranormal hotspot known for its strange happenings (bit spooky, eh?). In this game, you’ll find yourself as ‘The Lost One’, a charming little cat-like spirit trying to figure out why and when you rocked up in these woods. The game is a mix of point & click exploration and platforming, challenging you to talk to the forest’s inhabitants, interact with the environment, and solve riddles along the way.
But don’t just take my word for it – the free prologue is available for you to dip your toes into this mysterious world. It’s a standalone chapter from the full game, but the developers encourage you to give it a whirl to get a taste of what’s to come. And trust me, you’re in for a treat. The game’s hand-drawn 2D environment is simply stunning, capturing the essence of this eerie location in a way that’s sure to have you hooked.
