New Blood Interactive has quietly (or loudly, in case you follow Dave Oshry on Twitter) established itself as the best indie publisher for those of us who love throwbacks to the golden age of PC gaming. So it should come as no surprise that they are publishing Gloomwood, Dillon Rogers’ Thief-like set in a Victorian town where nasty characters roams the streets (and even nastier things nest in the sewers). Does the mention of Thief pique your fancy? Then go ahead and download the demo, because it’s the best thing for fans of Looking Glass Studios‘ classics since The Dark Mod (honestly, I’d argue it’s even better, but I’m not an expert).
What is Gloomwood?
Gloomwood is a stealth horror FPS that follows your mysterious abduction to a forgotten, twisted Victorian metropolis in the midst of a horrifying transformation. Wield your canesword and take to the shadows as you uncover the accursed mystery hidden within the fog.
From the producers of DUSK, AMID EVIL and FAITH comes a frightening, gothic immersive sim that will have you explore haunted streets, dark tunnels and decadent mansions.
