Descent Into Horror: A Deep Dive Into The Pit

You play as one of the members of a family of lore-hunting mystics. When your cousin Luridia discovers a demonic pit in a nearby village, her previously frequent letters mysteriously stop coming.

Therefore you journey to the cursed village that’s environmentally akin to the likes of Van Helsing or Bloodbourne. Your task? Find your cousin, and discover the secrets in the labyrinthine tunnel system below.

This game looks perfect for anyone who mainly plays as a mage in any typical RPG, but wants something a little more raw and gritty that packs a punch as an FPS.

Into The Pit combines high-octane combat with elements of the occult, demonic ritual, and supernatural eldritch horror. Spellcasting can be accomplished with one or both hands for dual spells with mixed effects, perfect for on-the-go healing and causing powerful damage all at once.
