Ultra-Indie Daily Dose: That Abysmal Place Is Not So Abysmal Actually

Hello, you glorious gluttons for all things indie horror! Are you just starving for the newest of the new, the most unknownest of the unknown? If so, you’ve come to the right place. Welcome to the Ultra-Indie Daily Dose! In this series, we’re going to pick a new game every day from an indie horror creator you’ve probably never heard of. No million-dollar budgets or factory productions. This is the space for the little guy with not but a developer toolkit and a dream. So if you’re down to roll the dice on something different, then stick around and check it out!

Welcome back for another Ultra-Indie Daily Dose! Courtesy of developer BlackVoid Media is the demo of their upcoming game, That Abysmal Place. This dark, eldritch platformer is similar to their previous title, Save Them, though for this game they have added some Souls style melee combat. 

That Abysmal Place begins with your character awakening in a dark cave. There’s really not much more to this premise. Your character looks like a silhouette of a Victorian housemaid, one who can jump seven feet vertically. There is satanic iconography in this cavern, as well as some strange enemies, but beyond that, no more lore to be found in this demo.

The demo is about 10-15 minutes long. This is more a demo of the gameplay mechanics than a full horror experience, but from what we see in it, That Abysmal Place will be an impressive platformer game. Depending on how much more BlackVoid decides to add to the game, this could be a competitor with other metroidvania titles.
