Summary

Explore a photorealistic recreation of the Italian countryside, by foot, bike or boat.
This dark, multi-layered story blurs the line between reality, superstition, and the tragedy of warfare.
Discover the mystery surrounding Martha’s death.

Spoiler warning: Martha was dead, to begin with.

Our journey with Martha is Dead was a long one. It has been a long journey from mastering and developing existing technologies to fine tuning and balancing the visual style and tone and creating a powerful and moving story.

We’re happy to say that our development journey is now coming to an end, and we’re excited to announce that Martha Is Dead will be launching on the Xbox family of consoles on February 24th, 2022.

If this is your first time being introduced to the game, Martha Is Dead is a dark first-person psychological thriller, set in 1944 Italy, which blurs the lines between reality, superstition and the heavy tragedy of war. Your twin sister Martha finds the drowned body of a woman in the open. You are left alone to deal with the loss of your twin sister Martha and the aftermath of her murder.

From the earliest days of developing Martha Is Dead we knew we needed to push the boundaries of visual fidelity to help present the impact of our dark tale to the world. We began to experiment with new tech that was still being developed and not yet fully understood by the industry. This included photogrammetry techniques, as well as the emerging metahuman technology Unreal!

In other words, Martha is Dead was created to meet our vision of the future of gaming. Although we were on the right path to some extent, the real power of Xbox Series consoles allowed us to push the boundaries in story telling and visual design, to make the story more relatable and complex. Our tale may be thought-provoking and dark, but we invite players to explore our detailed recreation of the Italian countryside by foot, bike, or boat. This is possible thanks to the Xbox Series consoles’ power and versatility.

You don’t usually see key spoilers printed in giant letters on the front of a box, but hey, Martha is Dead – this is the key jumping off point into the game. Martha is Dead will take you through Giulia’s perspective. She is a young woman who is struggling to cope with the loss and impact it has on her family and her ongoing life.

Loss is a powerful emotion that can be difficult to express. This loss occurred during Wartime, which is already traumatic. The mysterious tale of The Lady of the Lake (ethereal entity/dark power that governs the lake where Martha’s body is found) makes it even more daunting.

Could this dark force be responsible for the tragedy and misdeeds occurring? You’ll be able to find out on February 24th when you’ll be able to start unravelling the great mystery of Martha Is Dead for yourself.
