SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – September 27, 2023 – Vlad Circus: Descend into Madness, the 2D pixel-art horror adventure from developer Indiesruption (Nine Witches) and publisher Blowfish Studios, unleashes its terrifying mysteries on PlayStation 4|5 with backwards compatibility, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S with backwards compatibility, Nintendo Switch, and Windows PC via Steam, Epic Games Store and GOG starting Tuesday, October 17, 2023.
In the year 1921, the beloved Vlad Circus fell to a devastating fire, killing hundreds of innocents and forever scarring the survivors. Haunted by the tragedy, the circus troupe disbanded, only to be reunited by a mysterious invitation from their original ringleader eight years later.
Explore the eerie halls of the Victorian-inspired Petrescu Manor as Oliver Mills, better known as his clown persona “Lazy Ollie.” Several years in the Pennhurst Asylum have proved ineffective in restoring his memories, but reconnecting with old friends and a lost love may do the trick. Unease festers in Ollie as he explores the shadowy estate, unaware of the sinister secret dying to be set free.
Manage Ollie’s stress and survive horrifying hallucinations while solving perplexing puzzles. Fight or flee from awful abominations. Recover tortured memories to assist with mysteries, and unravel the ghastly truth of that fateful day.
“Vlad Circus: Descend into Madness marries a creepy atmospheric setting with a haunting narrative full of evocative storytelling,” said Diego Cánepa, lead designer, Indiesruption. “Enthralled and disturbed by Ollie’s trauma-induced nightmares, players will be on their toes until the very end.”
Vlad Circus: Descend into Madness will be available on all major platforms, with support for Windows, as well as language support for English, Spanish (Latin America), Spanish (Spain), French, German, and Russian.
