Horror Stories: Harvest Hunt announced, a stealth survival horror game with a demo coming to Steam in mid-June

From Press Release:

June 5th, 2023 – A looming shadow casts over the cursed village Luna Nova. Will you repel the impending horrors of the night, or become the next victim of an endless hunt? Villainous Games Studio is thrilled to announce their latest nightmare, Horror Stories: Harvest Hunt. Players can delve into the stealth survival horror experience with a demo debuting during Steam Next Fest on June 19th.

Horror Stories: Harvest Hunt is a single-player stealth survival horror game that blends the replayability of roguelites with the tension found across the horror genre. Step into the role of an appointed Warden tasked with gathering precious ambrosia throughout a sinister, nonlinear environment to find salvation. The impending nightmare of the Devourer lurks throughout the fields, so a strategic execution and a steady heartbeat are vital if Wardens hope to see daylight once again.

Each night of the hunt delivers a unique and chilling experience. Strategic decision-making and adaptability are the keys to survival when facing the Devourer. Before each night of the harvest, Wardens must decide how much health they are willing to sacrifice in order to gain advantageous tools found across the Farmlands of Luna Nova. As the moon rises on each night, cards are drawn to determine the fate of the Wardens. Cards may bring peculiar abilities, a bit of welcomed luck, and modifiers that affect both the environment and the Devourer alike.

From the unearthly soundscapes to the ghastly surroundings, Horror Stories: Harvest Hunt features a bone-chilling atmosphere for Wardens to embrace. Delve into the horrors of the dense, hand-drawn environments backed by an unnerving score from composer Jeff Broadbent (Resident EvilAssassin’s Creed). Become lost in the darkness, unaware of what lies in the shadows ready to strike.

Key Features:

  • Stealth: Gameplay that focuses on sneaking, hiding, and creeping in the darkness as you find your way around the dangerous cornfields of Luna Nova.
  • Survival: Sacrifice health to gain helpful tools, face Luna Nova’s hostile environment, and harvest precious resources for the survival of your village, all while confronting a monster vastly stronger than you.
  • Strategy: Risk-and-reward situations encourage smart decision-making, adaptability, and countering different elements with appropriate tools and strategies.
  • Roguelite: Play over multiple 10-15 minute runs and tailor your deck by choosing tools that counter each night’s randomized challenges.
  • Narrative: Embody a colorful cast of characters, piecing together their stories, personalities, and the truth of Luna Nova’s curse through the fragments of the villagers’ past.

Begin the hunt for salvation when Horror Stories: Harvest Hunt arrives on PC in 2023. Wardens eager to embrace the horrors of the night may do so with a demo debuting during Steam Next Fest on June 19th. Wishlist Horror Stories: Harvest Hunt on Steam today, or suffer at the hands of the Devourer.
