Betrayer is a mystic, first person action adventure game that takes you to the New World at the turn of the 17th century. It has been announced by Blackpowder Games, a team of veterans mostly from Monolith who worked on No One Lives Forever and the original F.E.A.R..

One of the game’s speciality is the monocromatic art in the visualisation. At the outset, 99 percent of the world is black-and-white, with red accents used on objects-of-interest and enemies. Betrayer’s black-and-white color filter expresses the eeriness more than anything else. It’s a visual approach that deliberately makes the world a little hard to decode. - “It feels like your brain is having to make sense out of things in a way that keeps you engaged,” as the creators describe it.

„Something has changed in the darkness”

BetrayerPlatform: PC, iOS, AndroidGenre: Action, FPSDeveloper: BlackPowder GamesRelease: 03/24/2014The year is 1604. You sailed from England expecting to join a struggling colony on the coast of Virginia. Instead, you find only ghosts and mysteries. What catastrophe blighted the land and drained it of color and life? Where are the settlers and tribes who lived here? And who is the strange, silent woman in red who aids you from afar?

Clue by clue, you must piece together the story of what befell this doomed settlement and find a way to set things right. You will be hunted by corrupted Conquistadors and ravening shadows as you explore an expansive wilderness in order to trace the brief, tragic history of the colony and search for survivors.

Betrayer will be released via Steam Early Access on August 14 priced $15.
