The long awaited Horror game from Sadsquare Studio comes to Early Access on Steam October 2, being developed since January 2015 it’s finally here. For those that aren’t familiar, VISAGE appeared on Kickstarter and completely bombed there Canadian goal.
Because people are anxious for this game, the studio brought out an update stating.
“The main reason we’ve decided to make an Early Access is because our fans are dying to play the game. We realize we’ve been pushing things quite a bit (more details on why down below), and we want to get our game done and in your hands as soon as possible. Seriously, we do, but game development is hard, as we’ve come to understand, and it takes a lot of time.
With that said, we believe the Early Access is a good game on its own and will (mostly) not hinder the final experience for the player, and that’s why we’ve decided to make it happen.
Even more importantly, we wanted to gather feedback from you guys, before we finalize all the other content for the game, and shape it into something you’ll hopefully love.
More detailed information on the Early Access is available on the Steam Store Page, be sure to check it out.”

Visage is a first-person psychological horror game.
Explore a mysterious ever-changing house in a slow-paced, atmospheric world that combines both uncannily comforting and horrifyingly realistic environments, and enjoy a genuinely terrifying experience.
The game is set inside a huge house in which terrible things have happened. You’ll wander through the gloomy corridors, explore every dead room, and get lost in endless mazes, your head filling with memories of the dead families that once lived in this very home. This twisted environment, void of any life other than yours, takes you to places you couldn’t even bear imagining.
This house is stained with a terrible past. Families were brutally murdered by their own family members, people went insane, many committed suicide, and other grisly events occurred. Each and every room has its story painted on an invisible canvas. As a player, you will relive parts of this dark past, and each of its fragments will leave you restless and terrified. You’ll soon wish you could join the dead’s ranks in their abyss, but death won’t help you leave this place. Will you run from it, or will you try to uncover the truth behind the shadows?
The families that died in the house will haunt you and leave you restless. They’ll follow your every move, watch you from every corner, play tricks with your mind, and try to attack you. Why do they haunt you? What have you done? This you have to find out on your own.
In Visage, you are defenseless; no weapons could save you from the dreadful entities stalking you from the next corner, the next door, or underneath your feet. You’ll be able to pick up key elements, interact with the environment, and search for things that may help you escape this nightmare or pull you deeper into it.
Dying is part of the game. You need to avoid terror at all costs, as dark entities are attracted to it. Maintaining your mind as sane as possible will keep you from joining the ranks of the dead. Doing so will not be easy, and you’ll have to figure out ways, like staying in the light, to avoid going insane.
