If you go down in the woods these days, you are certain of a major surprise. Murder. The surprise is murder, at least if you are in the woods of Lakeview Valley. Though it may possibly not be a lot of a surprise, provided the game describes itself as a murder RPG, and you may possibly just be the a single offing persons. Take a appear at the dangers lurking in the woods, and the prospective for a good spot of fishing, in the trailer beneath.
I am most intrigued by the reality that, like I mentioned, the game has the subhead “the murder RPG,” and describes itself that way in its retailer web page, but also says “become the most well-liked residence-owner or succumb to your dark desires,” implying you do not strictly have to have to kill anyone. What is a murder RPG without having the murder?
Effectively, regardless of your personal actions, someone’s been killing, so you could resolve that mystery (or not, once more). If you do choose to off one more villager, there’ll be an investigation, so it is up to you how a lot you cover your tracks. Or you could just concentrate on upgrading your home to show off to your neighbours. There’s also several endings, so all these options may well push you onto a distinct path.
Lakeview Valley is produced by the identical developer as, and regarded as a spiritual successor to, puzzly episodic sandbox Lakeview Cabin Collection. You can see exactly where the shared DNA comes in: the related art designs, the creepy-camp 80s horror film vibes, and the toolbox for causing chaos in your personal way.
Lakeview Valley is readily available on Steam now for £11.39/$14.99/€14.99.
