Headup Games Announces Holy Avatar vs. Maidens of the Dead

Holy Avatar Vs. Maidens of the Dead

Publisher Headup Games and indie studio Silent Dreams have announced a continuation of their tongue-in-cheek Grotesque Tactics franchise. Following the release of Grotesque Tactics: Premiums Edition and Grotesque Tactics 2: Dungeons & Donuts, the collaboration will be releasing a new spin-off of the main series. Holy Avatar vs. Maidens of the Dead will release in September for PC.

Holy Avatar vs. Maidens of the Dead features the titular Avatar’s trip to his recently purchased “Holy Island”. After the final battle in Grotesque Tactics 2, our antihero had racked up some well-earned rest and relaxation. Joined by his Guild of Maidens, the Holy Avatar sets off to enjoy his tropical paradise. Arriving on the beach, the group notices that there are mutilated bodies of dead maidens spread throughout the path to the inside of the island. While the Guild of Maidens wonders what terrible fate has befallen their sisters, the Avatar secretly enjoys this gruesome twist. Gathering up a portion of his group, the Holy Avatar embarks on a quest to unravel the horrific mysteries that await him deeper inside the island.

Besides crafting this off-kilter and humorous premise, Silent Dreams has reworked many of the visuals from scratch. The models have been done with a new, more colorful, cel-shaded style to make the visual experience more friendly. They have also listened to the community’s suggestions and added a fixed-camera. This will provide gamers with a more clear overview of what is going on in the game. Holy Avatar vs. Maidens of the Dead will also feature Carribean flair in the form of a reworked tropical HUD, new character portraits, and a soundtrack featuring plenty of steel-drum.

Headup Games has been responsible for bringing many of our favorite indie titles to the European gaming community. They are responsible for games such as Limbo, Super Meat-Boy, Terraria, and The Binding of Isaac. With Holy Avatar vs. Maidens of the Dead, they continue to do a great job supporting smaller, independent developers like Silent Dreams in their quest for further exposure.
