From solo developer, Nikki Kalpa comes a game that will unlock your deepest fears in They Speak From The Abyss. The psychological horror RPG faithfully captures the spirit of the classic dungeon crawlers with a glorious grunge horror aesthetic inspired by the masterful creations of Clive Barker and Junji Ito. Players can attempt to escape the grotesque hellscape of the Abyss with a brand new demo ahead of the game’s 2023 release.
They Speak From The Abyss tells the story of Vanessa Rivera, a young woman in dire need of a fresh beginning. With dread and anguish serving as a conduit, she is propelled into a world of literal nightmares riddled with horrific abominations. To escape the Abyss, Vanessa must face the very demons she attempted to leave behind in the first place. They Speak From The Abyss houses imagery plucked from our darkest imaginations and is woven into a deeply personal and grounded narrative carefully crafted by Kalpa.
“They Speak From The Abyss is about overcoming fears and trauma and trying to become a stronger person. Players must explore and confront many personal, mature, and often dark themes; themes of body horror and psychological struggle emerge through an expression of hate and anger. The player’s journey is designed to reflect real-world trials and tribulations.” – Nikki Kalpa.
They Speak From The Abyss is a twisted homage to the glory days of classic dungeon-crawling RPGs. Explore beautifully gruesome environments and confront the woeful souls and frightening demons lurking throughout the Abyss. Choose your words carefully, as some demons can be reasoned with. But when talking isn’t an option, be ready to engage in heart-pounding active-time battles.
