Montreal-based independent studio, Cut to Bits, has announced its debut game, Venture To The Vile, a story-focused Metroidvania set in a playful yet sinister world. The game is set to be released on PC and consoles next year.
In Venture To The Vile, players find their life plunged into chaos by the arrival of the Vile, an outpouring of monstrosities that have taken over the town of Rainybrook. Your friend Luella is lost in the darkness, and you are left with a blackened and mutated arm that can transform into a vicious claw. As you explore the town and fight against the Vile, you will absorb its abilities and powers with every death blow.
The game features a rich 3D world that players can explore by navigating parallel planes of 2D gameplay. The world dynamically shifts and changes with the time of day and weather, and players will encounter a peculiar cast of characters, take on unrelenting terrors, and discover new quests and stories.
