Top Hat Studios to Publish “Labyrinth of the Demon King” and “The Lost and The Wicked”
Top Hat Studios recently announced plans to publish a pair of new games, Labyrinth of the Demon King and The Lost and The Wicked, both with dark, terrifying themes.
Here’s the official breakdowns of both Labyrinth of the Demon King and The Lost and The Wicked from Top Hat Studios:
Developed by one-man studio J. R. Hudepohl and planned for a multi-platform release, Labyrinth of the Demon King is a brilliant ode to classic Japanese-developed horror themed PlayStation 1 games like Resident Evil, Silent Hill, and King’s Field, as well as other inspirations such as Condemned: Criminal Origins. A first-person survival horror game set in feudal Japan possessing an intense focus on a dark atmosphere, stealth exploration, and brutal first person combat, Labyrinth of the Demon King is in an epic steeped in traditional Japanese folklore and mythology; a tale of vengeance to track down the demon who betrayed your lord and end its life. Complete with a PS1 style dither filter, the game pays homage to the origins of timeless Japanese horror game franchises, with a touch of influence from Akira Kurosawa to boot.
The Lost and The Wicked, developed by Issac Torres, is a brutal twin-stick psycho-thriller currently available on Steam and coming to consoles. Based on a real psychoactive trip by the developer, players wake up shipwrecked, in a wicked world, with no memories of their own. Battle through hectic gameplay featuring a unique grunge art style and an original pulse pounding 2+ hour soundtrack that accompany you as you fight monsters and bosses to learn more about the world, how you got there, and unlock your past.
Both Labyrinth of the Demon King and The Lost and The Wicked are coming soon to consoles from Top Hat Studios. The Lost and the Wicked is available now on Steam PC.
