Independent developer Strength in Numbers Studios is proud to announce that Kaet Must Die! will be ready to make players around the world scream, when the scariest and hardest new game on Steam launches on April 5, 2018, with Nintendo Switch™ and Microsoft® Xbox One versions soon to follow. Players can get a taste of the uncompromising challenge of Kaet Must Die! at this year’s Game Developer’s Conference (GDC), as Strength in Numbers will be on-hand and available for playable demos, live streams and developer interviews at GDC Booth Number PL 4255.
Designed to be the most brutal, unforgiving game ever made with plenty of jump scares and unlimited deaths thrown in for good measure, Kaet Must Die! is a first-person, horror puzzle game that finds players taking on the role of Kaetheran, a powerful psionicist who has woken up alone in a dark sewer. Stripped of her powers, and surrounded by an army of unholy creatures who have one mission – to kill her – players must help Kaetheran survive through exploration and deciphering clues to solve puzzles, gain new abilities, and unravel the mystery as to why literally everyone and everything wants her to die.
Available to play publicly for the first time at the Games Developers Conference in San Francisco from March 21 through March 23, Kaet Must Die! will be ready to accept all who think they can avoid the constant threat of death. In the meantime, all are welcome to try their hand at the Kaet Must Die! demo on Steam, featuring an early build of the title’s first level.
“Be prepared to die. A lot,” says Strength in Numbers CEO, Scott Rescheke. “Kaet Must Die! was designed to punish players with its over-the-top difficulty and to appeal to those hungry for a true challenge. We’re looking forward to seeing lots of games journalists die, and die again when we show off the game at this year’s GDC.”
You are Kaetheran, an extremely powerful psionicist with a flair for cyberpunk style. You have awoken in a dank-AF sewer without your mind powers. You must figure out how to escape the sewer without losing your life while the blood witch Annalinnia tries to make you insane.
