The first in a planned anthology series, The False King is a tale of Dark Cosmic Horror from a one-man studio based in Barcelona.
San Francisco - January 20, 2022 | Published by Skystone Games and created by the one-man dev studio Drop of Pixel, Underworld Dreams: The False King is coming to Nintendo Switch™ and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store later this spring. The False King is the first game in the forthcoming horror anthology series Underworld Dreams. Based on the works of HP Lovecraft (and Robert W. Chambers' The King in Yellow) and set in the 1980s, Underworld Dreams: The False King tells the story of a man who has tracked down his missing brother to a seemingly abandoned building that hides something much more sinister behind its decrepit walls.
Built from the ground up for the Nintendo Switch™, Underworld Dreams draws upon the roots of the horror gaming genre. Prepare to dig into the mysteries of the occult and solve puzzles while constantly looking over your shoulder. Ancient forces are at work in this abandoned church, and only you can unlock the secrets of what doom is to come. Ammo and health are limited, there’s no telling what enemies you’ll face.
Solve puzzles to discover the fate of your brother, the dark designs of a cursed relic, and fight ancient and forbidden horrors. Your sanity will be tested as you untwist the riddles of an evil older than humanity itself.
Every bullet counts as you must measure resources against the haunting doom.
Old school terror is built around an immersive and fully detailed environment. The False King brings in a dark narrative mixing psychological and cosmic horror.
Explore the world of psychological horror created by H.P. Lovecraft and based on "The King in Yellow" by Robert W. Chambers.
In the weeks ahead, players will be invited to try an exclusive demo. In the meantime, we ask that you please wishlist Underworld Dreams: The False King on the Steam Page here.
