There are few games which look like truly too much for me to stomach, but Agony appears to be just such a game. Staying true to its namesake, Agony is a no-holds-barred survival horror game set in the depths of hell. It’s not cartoon-y fire and brimstone either, but pulsating walls of flesh, crying foetuses, and faceless abominations. The prospect of actually spending time in this world is indeed a grim one if the latest, extensive gameplay demo is anything to go by. 

From the looks of things, art style aside, Agony is your typical run and hide survival horror game, with players taking the role of a damned soul who has washing up on the blazing shores. There are some light combat elements though, and you can possess some of the weaker demons to work in your bidding.

 

It really is unrelenting. After 10 minutes of this, I’d probably need a nice cup of tea and a lie-down. For what it attempts to achieve though, the results are undeniably impressive. I’m just sort of trying to picture the lead artist trotting into work each day, whistling a tune with a bindle on his shoulder, before settling down to work on an inside out vagina splitting open and a spider-walking man crawling out. It really is a ghoulish creation. 

At the moment Agony is just tagged with a vague 2017 date, but it’s looking likely this hellish adventure could be heading to PC fairly soon.

In all seriousness though, looks like a cool concept and can't wait to see the final result.

well i really hope that the real game won't end up like this cause for a horror game it was awful the visuals are great but an ugly creature hitting u without making a sound isn't really scary the voices are disappointing!

i mean for a place called hell it was too silent even dead space had more sound and it's DEAD SPACE!!! what makes sth horrifying isn't the visuals it's the sound and the surprise and not been able to see what's after u!

yeah i know that's why i said "i hope the real game won't end up like that" the visuals are great but the fact that this is not yet a horror game remains the same and with the many horror genre being action games it's not strange!

I'll have to agree. DOOM3 was probably more horror than any newer horror games just because the sounds and the atmosphere were made so well. Gore alone isn't horror by any stretch of imagination, though I believe I may have just become numb to it :D

i am sorry but this game is not horror for me at all... real horror game is not just ugly monsters chasing you and this very ordinary things for low-level horror games... i like when horror game has set which makes you scared, not just a monsters who chase you and just scare you just because they are ugly... good game but not that good to say that it looks "absolutely horrific in the best way"...

But nothing scares us these days cause we've either seen it all or are way too much aware that it's just a game...let's face it our brains are spoiling the fun for us :D
