Dear Song of Horror fans,
We have listened to your opinions about permadeath and, following our April's poll results, we have added a new game mode to Song of Horror!
Introducing E.T.A. Hoffmann
Named after the famous gothic author, E.T.A. Hoffmann is a new difficulty option where there is no permadeath. In this mode, players can choose another character or re-start from the last checkpoint when a character dies. The Presence will also have the same difficulty level as MR James.
Now that we are closer than ever to the Final Episode, we feel it's the perfect moment to enjoy Episodes 1 through 4 in E.T.A. Hoffmann, to make sure your favorite characters reach the end!
About Permadeath in Song of Horror
Song of Horror was designed to be a challenging, scary experience where permadeath is essential. We want you to feel the true fear and pressure of losing a character forever, that every action you take has a meaningful impact, that mistakes have real consequences... But also, that these consequences promote changing characters and experiencing Song of Horror from different perspectives.
However, we understand that every player is different. Some of you wanted to enjoy the story and gameplay of Song of Horror without permadeath getting in your way.
We recommend playing Song of Horror with permadeath for the first time... But, if the game was inaccessible to you due to this mechanic, we hope that the E.T.A Hoffmann difficulty will allow you to still enjoy it!
_Stay safe everyone!
The Protocol & Raiser Games Teams.
There is nothing more marvelous or madder than real life.
