Supernatural Adventure “Last Days of Lazarus” Coming to Steam on 22 June

Indie game studios Darkania Works and GrimTalin recently announced that their upcoming collaboration, Last Days of Lazarus, is coming to Steam PC on 22 June.

Last Days of Lazarus is a first-person, “supernatural adventure game heavily inspired by Romanian post-communist history, local superstitions and religious beliefs.” The game tackles themes of family, loss, secrets, and political turmoil.

Here’s the official breakdown of Last Days of Lazarus from the developers:

After their mother’s suicide, Lazarus returns home to his sister Lyudmila. But unexplained events make the country and even reality collapse around him. Looming death, social unrest and the supernatural threaten his sanity, yet Lazarus pushes forward to find the truth about his family. In a sick society where everyone cares only about themselves and their survival, can family bonds still be upheld and cherished? And with so much propaganda and superstitions, can level headed thinking still be achieved? These are the sort of questions the game tackles.

The story is split into eight chapters and you’ll be visiting five locations inspired by actual places from Romania. You’ll get a chance to explore mysterious settings, interact with questionable characters, find documents to piece together what happened to this troubled family and solve light puzzles to progress.

Last Days of Lazarus is a collaboration between Darkania Works and GrimTalin, two small indie studios from Iasi, Romania. The game was made in Unreal Engine 4 over the course of more than two and a half years.

The Last Days of Lazarus is scheduled for release on 22 June via Steam PC, where you can add the game to your wishlist now. A console port is expected to release in late 2022/early 2023 for PS5 and SeXbox.
