A new survival horror game has been revealed, one that takes place in an isolated 90’s Polish lakeside town in which an ominous presence has slowly enveloped everything and everyone.
However, what really caught our eye with Holstin was the attractive isometric art style tethered to the experience. Whilst this might not necessarily be a unique viewpoint for horror games, how it mixes 2D art with dynamic lighting is fascinating.
• Explore a Possessed Town
Something is very wrong in the town of Jeziorne-Kolonia. The streets are overrun by some kind of filthy slime. The people, the buildings, and the wildlife all seem to be slowly deteriorating from the inside.
• Fight and Survive Against Unfathomable Monstrosities
Scavenge for scarce supplies and weapons to fight off the twisted monstrosities now roaming the darkest corners of the town.
• Speak to Locals Slowly Losing Their Minds
Sanity among the locals seems to be slowly slipping away, but they are the only ones who can get you the answers you need. You will have to play along with their unnerving delusions and try to understand their festering world to get anywhere.
• Classic Visuals with Modern Tricks and Technology
Hand-drawn , 3D pixel-art enhanced with dynamic lighting and a free camera system.
• Full Voice Acting in Polish and English
Chillingly manic performances in both English and Polish will bring every character in Holstin to life.
Holstin uses 2XD Rendering technology which allows the team to create real-time lighting in a pixel-art game. A Steam demo will be released in January 2023.
