In 2009, German studio Deck13—who would go on to make soulslikes Lords of the Fallen and The Surge series—released a 3rd-person RPG in which you play Death’s daughter. No, not Susan Sto Helit from Terry Pratchett’s Discworld publications, though I would kill for a activity about her, but a corset-clad inhabitant of a fantasy model of Venice named Scarlett who fights with a detached scythe blade.
Venetica did not established the planet on hearth many thanks to a degree of jankiness and relatively shallow beat, but did generate some supporters many thanks to its strange Renaissance setting and odd suggestions like the lockpicking system, in which the ghosts of two intruders convey to you which order to torque your four lockpicks.
As aspect of GOG’s summer months sale, you can seize Venetica – Gold Version for free of charge (opens in new tab) correct now. Be speedy, as you’ve only acquired until 6am PST/2pm BST on Sunday, June 12 to get it. It will come with some further downloadable goodies, like a producing of video, the soundtrack in mp3 structure, the handbook and an artbook (the latter in German), and a little something which is just labeled “Venice”. As a 143MB download it truly is presumably not the whole Italian metropolis, but somewhat a video tour of it.
