Horror Stories: Harvest Hunt – Seeking Light in the Shadows of Luna Nova
As the long shadow of a cursed evening descends over the fateful village of Luna Nova, players will find themselves embroiled in a tense battle of survival in Villainous Games Studio’s newly announced title, Horror Stories: Harvest Hunt. This stealth survival horror game offers a blood-curdling sneak peek via a demo debuting during the esteemed Steam Next Fest on the 19th of June.
Horror Stories: Harvest Hunt marries the replayability of roguelites with the heart-stopping tension characteristic of the horror genre. Players assume the mantle of a Warden, an ambrosia harvester tasked with outsmarting the Devourer, a formidable foe shrouded in Luna Nova’s cornfields. Strategy, adaptability, and a steady heartbeat will determine whether you’ll survive to see the light of another day.
Unique challenges wait in the wings each evening. Health sacrifice for game-changing tools is a crucial decision before embarking on each nocturnal endeavour. As the moon rises, fate is dealt through a deck of cards that may bestow mysterious abilities, fortunate twists, and game-altering modifiers.
From the spectral sound design by acclaimed composer Jeff Broadbent (Resident Evil, Assassin’s Creed) to the spine-chilling, hand-drawn environments, Horror Stories: Harvest Hunt promises a nerve-wracking journey through the eerie farmlands of Luna Nova.
Horror Stories: Harvest Hunt will launch on PC in 2023. The brave or simply curious can confront their fears with the game’s demo during the Steam Next Fest on June 19th. Interested parties can Wishlist Horror Stories: Harvest Hunt on Steam today.
