Sydney, Australia - June 12, 2023
Time Rifts filled with interdimensional terrors are just another thing to watch out for when visiting Australia.
Weforge Studio is pleased to announce the debut of their game, Macabre, has just been showcased at the PC Gaming Show. Presented to millions of viewers worldwide, this reveal is a significant accomplishment for the independent game studio based in Sydney, Australia.
Macabre is a co-op stealth extraction horror game that takes players on a thrilling journey through infinite timelines within an unstable time rift. Guided by Banjo, an eccentric recluse with an unclear past, players will venture deep into the rift, tasked with uncovering the source of terrifying anomalies.
"We're incredibly humbled and grateful for the opportunity to showcase Macabre at the PC Gaming Show," said Jake Davey, Game Director and Co-founder of Weforge Studio. "The game has been a labour of love for our team, and we can't wait for players to experience the unique blend of stealth, horror, and co-op gameplay that Macabre offers."
Macabre features a highly replayable game loop, addictive progression, and the option to play solo or with friends. The game is designed with depth and replayability in mind, offering unique locations, immersive art and sound, cunning creatures, and a pinch of Dark comedy.
"People all around the world know Australia to be a dangerous place. Our goal is to reinforce this stereotype by showing we also have cunning interdimensional beings that will stop at nothing to tear you apart," said Jay Topping, Creative Director and Co-founder of Weforge Studio. "We believe that Macabre offers a fresh and unique take on the horror genre, and we're excited to see how players will react to the reveal trailer."
Developed in Unreal Engine 5 for PC, Macabre aims to bring the immersive and terrifying experience of high-end single-player horror games to a multiplayer audience. Weforge is set to release a single-player demo soon, with an Early Access release date and price to be announced.
