If you enjoy doom and gloom, you might want to take a look at Tormentum: Dark Sorrow ($4.99), an adventure game just out on iOS and Android. As you can see from the trailer below, the developers went for a nightmarish ambience that looks like it will definitely stay with you. The surreal atmosphere evokes the paintings by H. R, Giger and Beksin’ski according to the developers, which is a fancy way of saying the art is taken straight out of all those nightmares you had as a kid. In Tormentum, you play as a nameless hero who wakes up one day locked in a metal cage on your way to a castle to serve time for crimes you don’t remember.
Yes, the trope of the hero without a memory seems to once more dictate the game’s plot, but it does look like a fit for those visuals and music. The hero gets to explore 3 countries, made up of close to 80 dark locations, and make various choices that affect the end of the game, including decisions that either save or doom the creatures you meet. The game is universal and is out now. And for a limited time, you can get it for 30% off its regular price. So, nightmares for cheap.
