I confess to being a little late. Martha is Dead is a video game that is now a few months old, however, as soon as I came across it while reading the interview with creator Luca Dalcó of LAK in gamepro magazine – I couldn’t help but be fascinated.
Primarily because it is an Italian production, and in the gaming world there are not so many examples. Secondly, because yes, the whole story is set in Tuscany. It is no coincidence, the developers are in fact from those areas.
Finally, Martha is Dead is set in 1944, during the Nazi-fascist occupation at the end of the Second World War. The idea of immersing yourself in that historical period, right in our territory, is certainly fascinating.
Regardless of the context, Martha is Dead is in all respects a psychological horror, which certainly does not spare the gamer anxieties and inconveniences. A video game with a very deep and dramatic storyline, with simple, yet engaging and original game mechanics. Able to fully enjoy the narrative experience and atmospheres.
