After WW2, there were zombies. A while after that, everything was open-world fantasy. Gaming is notorious for memetic themes, with some themes stealing away from the game until they become too overwhelming. Tidying up, however, would be a godsend.
I blame Stardew Valley. If a non-AAA game does not cite its inspiration as Into The Breach, then you can bet it will be Stardew Valley, and that is the game cited in promotional materials here. However, let us not forget that both genres are bringing us a lot of gold just now. In a release trailer that shows fixing, cleaning, sorting, and brutally cutting the heads off of enemies, Bloody Hell Hotel is a great example of this.
Unfold Games, which developed the bizarre puzzle game Darq, was previously a team of oneWlad Marhulets, but it is now a much smaller studio.
What I like the most about this trailer is how difficult it is to get a pin in exactly what it is well be doing in the game. Is it a game about being a cleaning telepath? Is it a game about being a brutal vampire who devours the guests? Or is it a first-person sword-fight game where youre battling hordes of skeletons?
Youre a vampire who has been in a state of shock for the last few centuries. This means that your immense mansion is in disrepair, but it is now time to renovate it and transform it into a hotel. This will require some first-person farming, crafting, and even fighting to restore your house until other people want to stay.
PowerIQ Dynamic Power Distribution With two USB-C ports and one USB-A port, youll have no trouble charging your phone, tablets, and notebooks all at once from a single location.
While there are zombie chickens you can watch for eggs, and indeed if a guest is particularly annoying, you can drink their blood and serve their meat to everyone else in Stardew Valley.
There's a bit of a Moonlighter vibe to things, with the hotel to operate and manage above ground, and the vast dungeons of the building to explore beneath. You go on these battley quests to gather resources for running the business upstairs.
Which all sounds fantastic to me: Cult Of The Lamb meets a dungeon crawler. I do agree that the telekinetic controls aren't as powerful as they appear in the preview footage, but given peoples current preference for pressure-washing playgrounds, intricate farms, and tidying things, this seems like the ticket.
